[Beta] Windows in full screen missing text Fri, 06 June 2014 06:26
Hi fellow SmallWorlders,

I did a few searches for this and I have trouble believing that I'm the first person to mention this. Maybe I just searched for the wrong phrases. I've been playing SW2 Beta on my Desktop and Win8 Tablet Shocked (who has one of those, right?)

Anyway the bug (I think) is that whenever I press Alt+Enter to go full screen with no border and no start menu, every single discription box in the game is just blank. Even more weird is when I try to take a screenshot, text shows up but is offset or weirdly formatted. This is not for the graphic text in buttons like "play" or even names and race/power under your name, it is just the stuff you would grab your game manual for including the entire ingame rule book.

Along side that, when I have my Win 8 tablet in tablet mode sans keyboard I would love a fullscreen button. Also, there is no way to exit the game while in full screen. I can get all the way to the wizard and the waterfall screen but there should be something like tapping on the windmill to exit the game. for windows you have to click on the windowed x where as android and iOS you have a home button. Perhaps this should be added to the "requested features list" just wanted to bounce this off someone else.

Happy hunting

Fullscreen text missing for me also.

Agreed on actual quit button too. A fullscreen button would be nice too, but I don't mind too much about that. Quit button would be great.

I'm not sure if you've already reported this, Rasmaster (who also happens to be my little brother, Kenny) but if not go ahead and send in a report! I'm not sure if this will be fixed before the full launch of this big update, but it's good to get into the list of things to fix. Smile

Could you guys tell us which video board and driver you are using? We are not able to reproduce it, but there is obviously a pattern there...

Thanks,

Yann

I don't always get no text on fullscreen, but for what it's worth:

I'm running an NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250.
DXDiag says-
Driver Name: nvd3dum.dll,nvwgf2um.dll,nvwgf2um.dll
Driver File Version: 9.18.0013.3788 (English)

Precisely. I mean, right now, I'm getting full text in-game on fullscreen... Sometimes I don't.
My Surface seems to get fullscreen text less than my home PC also.

So tried it on my wife's laptop and either I'm just unlucky or I ran into a different bug (or both). With an older laptop (circa 2009) I can see all the text while in alt+enter fullscreen however I also have a flashing background on the right side(behind the race/power choices)

Go figure, I pulled the logs and the DxDiag file. I also took a short clip and uploaded with dropbox. See the links below.

log files: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29403321/Small%20world%2 0stuff/Small%20World%20Vaio%20Black%20flashing.zip

Video:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29403321/Small%20world%2 0stuff/Small%20World%20flashing%20background.mp4

In the video you'll see a pink line, that is because we dropped this laptop and there is a line of bad pixels. I also go into and out of full screen to show that it does not have anything to do with the flashing despite how perfectly it lines up in full screen. Hope this helps, let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist in bug hunting.
Kenny

I would love to be sent some bug hunting quests and here are the rigs I can hunt on

My computer: homebuilt
Win 7x64
Intel i5 2550K dual monitor run by Radeon 6800
16GB ram

Media PC: homebuilt
Win 8x64
AMD APU A8-5600k with Radeon 7560D "Integrated" graphics
8Gb Ram (7.2 usable)

My tablet: Asus Transformer 11" T100ta
Win 8x86
Intel Atom processor @ 3.3 Ghz, Integrated Intel graphics
1gb ram

My wife's laptop: Sony Vaio circa 2009
Win 7x64
Intel Pentium Dual T3200 with mobile Intel 4 series express 128mb
8GB ram

And finally, a Nexus 7 (2012 version) but I haven't bought a second copy of SW2 for Android and I figure that is less unique.

I could probably rustle up an older computer as well but I doubt DoW would even support any of my XP boxes. I know I tried to install Ticket to Ride on an old laptop and the display driver couldn't handle it... yea it is that old.

Just let me know
Kenny

We have a tentative fix with the build 1262 that we just released.

Could you try it and confirm that it works Very Happy or does not work Crying or Very Sad ?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Yann!
