Problem with shaders

Graphics issues like: bad framerates, weird colors, OpenGL errors etc. Bad graphics ar usually the result of bad graphics cards or drivers.
Forum rules
In order to help you, we need to know a lot of information. Make sure to include answers to at least the following questions in your initial post.

- what OS (Windows Xp/Vista, Mac etc.) are you running?
- what FlightGear version do you use?
- what graphics card do you have?
- does the problem occur with any aircraft, at any airport?
- is there any output printed to the console (black window)?
- copy&paste your commandline (tick the "Show commandline box on the last page of FGRun or the "Others" section on the Mac launcher).
- please upload a screenshot of the problem.

If you experience FlightGear crashes, please report a bug using the issue tracker (can be also used for feature requests).
To run FlightGear on old computers with bad OpenGL support, please take a look at this wiki article. If you are seeing corrupted/broken textures, please see this article.

Note: If you did not get a reponse, even after 7 days, you may want to check out the FlightGear mailing lists to ask your question there.

Problem with shaders

Postby imsai » Thu Jan 15, 2015 11:45 pm

Hi guys,

after encountering the problem that fg shuts down with "fg has stopped working", I used this minimal starting profile to determine the source of the error:

Code: Select all
@echo off
"C:\Program Files\FlightGear\bin\Win64\fgfs.exe" --fg-root="C:\Program Files\FlightGear\data" --ignore-autosave --airport=ksfo --offset-distance=4000 --offset-azimuth=90 --altitude=500 --heading=0 --model-hz=60 --disable-random-objects --prop:/sim/rendering/texture-compression=off --prop:/sim/rendering/quality-level=0 --prop:/sim/rendering/shaders/quality-level=0 --disable-ai-traffic --prop:/sim/ai/enabled=0 --aircraft=ufo --disable-sound --prop:/sim/rendering/random-vegetation=0 --prop:/sim/rendering/random-buildings=0 --disable-specular-highlight --disable-ai-models --disable-clouds --disable-clouds3d --fog-fastest --visibility=5000 --disable-distance-attenuation --disable-enhanced-lighting --disable-real-weather-fetch --prop:/sim/rendering/particles=0 --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-sample-buffers=1 --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-samples=2


I commented out each option step by step and found that with --prop:/sim/rendering/shaders/quality-level=0 and all other options commented out, the program runs fine. If I in turn increase the number, the error message pops up again and I am asked to send a report (I have done so).

My specifications are:

- Win 7, 64 bit
- FG 3.2.0
- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 with latest driver
- Problem occurs with the UFO and two Cessna planes
- Problem occurs with several airports
- If I start fg with fgrun, the commandline looks like the following:

Code: Select all

  --fg-root=C:\Program Files\FlightGear 3.2.0\data
  --fg-scenery=C:\Users\jens\Documents\FlightGear\Custom Scenery;C:\Program Files\FlightGear 3.2.0\data\Scenery;C:\Users\jens\Documents\FlightGear\TerraSync

Re: Problem with shaders

Postby Thorsten » Fri Jan 16, 2015 7:28 am

I commented out each option step by step and found that with --prop:/sim/rendering/shaders/quality-level=0


What happens if you start with quality level 0 and then in-sim use the rendering menu option to increase quality level - does that lead to an immediate crash as well?

And how much memory do you have available?

(You've made an exemplary bug report by the way - the problem is that I still can't spot anything rendering-related which would give a clue as to what is happening... hopefully someone else can)

Thanks for the reply and sorry that i did not mention it; yes, if i start with quality level 0 and increase it in-sim, an immediate crash follows.

I have 4 gb memory.

Re: Problem with shaders

Postby Hooray » Sat Jan 17, 2015 2:35 am

are there any errors shown in the console window directly after enabling shaders ?

Alternatively, please maintain level 0 for now and go to HELP/ABOUT and post the output shown there using the buttons there (copy to clipboard or using a screen shot)
(it seems that for some reasons your driver's GLSL (shader) support is not quite working)

-> have you tried running other OpenGL/GLSL software, e.g. a benchmark like FurMark3d ?
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,

The output from HELP/ABOUT looks like the following:

gl-vendor:ATI Technologies Inc.
gl-version:4.0.9902 Compatibility Profile Context
gl-renderer:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
gl-shading-language-version:4.00

I did not try other OpenGL/GLSL software, yet.

Can you try one additional thing?

Try starting with custom shader setting set to 0 and then move each one "except water" up one level at a time. See if you can get to full on each one with the exception of water.

I offer this test as I remembered when I was running a Radeon in Win7, the water shader only at high was causing a failure.

Re: Problem with shaders

I think the problem is deeper. Shaders are compiled and executed on the GPU, which means that they don't even run in the same environment as FG, and they don't talk back to the FG core. So on a correctly set up OpenGL environment, as far as I understand they should be conceptually unable to crash FG (in fact, they never ever did that for me - a buggy shader might show you psychedelic terrain, or nothing at all, but I never got a crash regardless how stupid the error was).

So if shaders in general cause crashes, I would check the OpenGL installation, update the driver, test other OpenGL using applications,... I can't see how that'd be FG specific.

Re: Problem with shaders

Postby wlbragg » Tue Jan 20, 2015 7:31 am

I don't disagree, it probably was symptomatic of a deeper problem.

But with my old Radeon card, whenever I set the water shader to high, (or maybe it was just on), fg shut down. I don't remember if I ever saw any error in log or any thing to indicate what was wrong. It's possible I was also running 32bit at the time and maybe it was a combination of things.
I have since switched to nVidia and that problem is long gone.
If this user says switching on shaders causes a crash, then I am really curious if it acts at all like my system did back then. I would have not easily caught the fact that it was just the water shader that was the trigger. But I remember testing all the sliders and it was just the water slider that caused it. Is there anything else besides shader switching that is attached to any of the slider positions, specifically water?

Using water at highest quality might have forced loading the 8000x4000 sized depth map into texture memory, which might have triggered an out of memory crash (?) - but if so, it wouldn't be shader specific, any model textured with something that size would have made similar problems.

Speculating here of course. I don't think that can happen the same way on a 64 bit system.
