Pink Water
« on: May 16, 2017, 05:46:55 AM »
That new canal water is taxing my graphics setup... too weak, LOL   :D

* And I fear there is not much I can do about it right now...  :-[

I have the same problem, I tried changing to DX9 but then my game crashed so I don't know if that helps. My graphic card is 5 years old though :(, an ATI HD 7700.

Hmm, that is odd indeed. Could you guys post a screenshot of your video settings so I can try to reproduce the error? I see that the regular water is not doing this, which leads me to believe that it might be something I did in the code. It's very strange how it cuts off on the left side of the screenshot though, or is that a bit of regular water we're seeing there?

Changing the DX while the game is running crashes it for me too, try changing it in the menu.

No, this is on my laptop... Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000... driver is current.

Correct, where the canals touches "true" water (either stream or creek) this does not happen...

Well, I tried every possible setting (reasonable or unreasonable)  ;)

The pink wouldn't budge at all... and for whatever this might be worth - it's a "singularity", never seen anything like it before   :)

Thanks Paeng! I tried your settings, but unfortunately I can't reproduce the bug on my system. I suspect that it's something hardware related indeed. I will try to delve into the code to see which changes might have led to this problem, though without being able to reproduce it myself it's going to be a bit of a shot in the dark.

Haha @RedKetchup you beat me to it, I was going to suggest that it reminded me of the great lakes here in Australia which are well known to be pink :)  It's a bacteria that cause the colour to be so vibrant :D

Sorry about the glitch @Paeng if it wasn't a sign of something wonky with the system setup, I'd happily have pink water.
1)  Pink's my colour (it never was until I turned 30!!)
2)  And it's an Aussie icon, the pink water :D

Nope, none at all...

Yeah, I tend to say don't sweat over it... seems to be a fluke on old HW, Calli with an outdated ATI (which are known to be... ummm... sensitive, anyway...) and me, I currently don't even have a dedicated card...  :(

At worst, I'll just take b/w pics of the canals  LOL  :D
