is this OpenGL or OpenGL with shaders?

Replying to aquadran:

is this OpenGL or OpenGL with shaders?

both opengl and OGS

i checked this in software rendering and it doesnt occur
checked 4 locations.

with opengl/OGS
the first scene this occurs is exiting your office at the start of the game
go into the hallway and the transparency layers from the previous scene (your couch and other objects) is now in the hallway masking an "invisible" layer over the models

im using opengl with shaders
but retesting with "opengl" im having trouble reproducing it

i know for sure the first time i launched grim fandango with OpenGL mode (not shaders) and the hallway transparency issue occured

i'll switch to only using OpenGL and see if this happens again

comment:5 by aquadran, 7 months ago

by default it's OpenGL with shaders

comment:6 by arrowgent, 7 months ago

ive gone and removed the ppa versions and "scummvm-data" which ubuntu packages
and downloaded the provided scummvm here
https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/

ScummVM 2.5.0 (Oct 14 2021 11:15:57)
Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA SEQ sndio TiMidity RGB zLib MPEG2 FluidSynth Theora AAC A/52 FreeType2 JPEG PNG GIF TTS cloud (servers, local) TinyGL OpenGL (with shaders) GLEW

so same issue as tested.

i understand if OpenGL with Shaders is causing issue

my general Graphics Options = Game 3d Renderer = OpenGL
by default new games are disabled "override global graphics settings"
thats when my first launch of the game the error appeared in the hallway
so i changed it in Grim -> Edit -> Graphics -> Override -> Game 3D Renderer = OpenGL with Shaders
i didnt encounter the issue a second time so i left it as that.

changing back to "OpenGL" and will continue
thanks

seems like it was fixed

2.5.1 "Californium" (2022-01-02)
OpenGL without shaders is preferred as default for Grim Fandango.
