The graphics problem is back

Post by Painted Lady » June 13th, 2015, 8:27 am

I just decided to take a spin through the world of Eschalon and started with Book I. This is the first time I have played the game since Yosemite came out, so I assume the new OS has caused this problem. Anyway, about 10% of the time when I enter a new map, some of the ground tiles are blank. I have had to reboot the Mac to get the problem to go away.

I don't know if BW will think it is worth re-compiling to fix the issue, but thought it ought to be on the wish list.

I've seen this, too. I didn't worry about it too much as I'm more interested in what Thomas is doing next.

Oh, so you're running Linux now?

:lol: That was pretty funny, SS.

OS debates aside, and having used all three major OSes in the past 10 years, I honestly have to say I end up working with Windows the most. Linux is great, but it requires so much work to get everything working properly...not to mention almost none of the dev software I use works natively with Linux. Heck, I have a Xerox network printer that I have tried for three yeasr to get working on Linux, following dozens of online guides and using drivers from various sources, and I cannot get my Linux machines to communicate with it.

Still, I appreciate Linux on many levels and try to use it as much as possible at home.

Oh, and Painted Lady- do you know that you have the latest compiled version? I thought that issue was all taken care of and I haven't had a complaint in a year or more.
See my ramblings and keep up with the latest news on Twitter & Facebook.

I'm on 1.06. I installed it in December. Is it the latest version?
