Title: Cloud shadow bug on ground textures
Post by: tbauchot on June 03, 2019, 05:20:05 AM
"I don't know if it's the right place for this topic ?!..."
Hi,
Sometimes it happen in my game to see the clouds shadows that appear like big squares :
Did you have ever seen that in your game ?
Do you have any idea what caused this ?
Here, my OpenGL config.ini :
Code: [Select]
[Render_OpenGL]TexQual=3TexMipFilter=3TexCompress=0TexFlags.UseDither=1TexFlags.UseAlpha=0TexFlags.UseIndex=0TexFlags.PolygonStipple=1TexFlags.UseClampedSprites=0TexFlags.DrawLandByTriangles=0TexFlags.UseVertexArrays=1TexFlags.DisableAPIExtensions=0TexFlags.ARBMultitextureExt=1TexFlags.TexEnvCombineExt=1TexFlags.SecondaryColorExt=1TexFlags.VertexArrayExt=1TexFlags.ClipHintExt=1TexFlags.UsePaletteExt=0TexFlags.TexAnisotropicExt=1TexFlags.TexCompressARBExt=0TexFlags.TexEnvCombine4NV=1TexFlags.TexEnvCombineDot3=1TexFlags.DepthClampNV=1TexFlags.SeparateSpecular=0TexFlags.TextureShaderNV=1HardwareShaders=1Shadows=2Specular=2SpecularLight=2DiffuseLight=2DynamicalLights=1MeshDetail=2VisibilityDistance=3Sky=2Forest=3LandShading=3LandDetails=2TypeClouds=1LandGeom=3TexLarge=1TexLandQual=3TexLandLarge=1VideoSetupId=17Water=4Effects=1ForceShaders1x=0PolygonOffsetFactor=-0.15PolygonOffsetUnits=-3.0Thank you very much in advance.  ;) :)

Yes, I see it quite often in my game and I'd love to know the fix for it.

... never seen that before, must be some setting in your conf.ini, but which one ...?  :-X

You should try Mike's one ...  ;)

It only happens when your conf.ini is wrong.
Either you have a dedicated graphics card and use wrong settings, in which case Mick's reply nailed it.
Or you are playing with CPU-integrated Intel HD graphics, in which case there's a few thousand times when on this very forum we adviced you not to use OpenGL but DirectX instead. Intel HD doesn't work with IL-2 in OpenGL mode, that's a known fact for more than a decade now.

Thanks Mike,

It's a dedicated card (1080ti) and I thought I had always used your conf.ini settings. I will have to check again!

Cheers
