.DDS Support? [Installation trouble due to new(?) feature]

Postby kyokoyama » Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:21 pm

I finally got 2.8 to install, and was really happy to fly again in my virtual cockpit for the first time in half a year! :D

...then the error message below came up on the console when I tried to start up a UFO at KNUQ. (which is weird, because it shouldn't be snowing...)

Code: Select all
Image "[censored]/FlightGear/data/Textures.high/Terrain/snow3.dds"
uses compressed textures which cannot be supported on some systems.
Please decompress this texture for improved portability.


I'm guessing .dds is a new shader file or something, because I don't remember seeing that filetype in 2.6.
What should I do to solve this? Do I just delete the .dds, or is there something wrong?
Look for "B-BIRD" "N127KY" or "AVA0004" -that's me.

Despite having over 1700 posts here, I am not even close to being the most skilled guy here... I'm just words and bad drawing, not experience. :P

Ignore the error. It isn't relevant to the general user. By the way, you can use these .dds textures with this:

Code: Select all
--prop:/sim/rendering/materials-file=Materials/dds/materials.xml

The dds snow is loaded in any case, since it's used for the snow shader effect and declared to be loaded in the general terrain rendering effect file.

How would I do this?
(and as much as I'd like to ignore it, this is causing FG to crash during startup, so I can't, really...)

Go to advanced options > properties and add it there.

Also, if FG is crashing, then it obviously isn't this. Please post whole cmd line output.

Easiest option is to go to Advanced > Rendering and add the file path to the "Materials file" field ;-)

It is not an error, but a warning. DDS is an image type that can be loaded much faster by your graphics card. But not all computers support the format, so we've added a warning to the console so anyone adding such files knows that they won't work on some computers. Users can ignore the message.

Actualy it's a compressed image format. It doesn't need to pe decompressed because the graphic cards can handle the compression natively in hardware.

@kyokoyama, unfortunately that one sliped into the common part of the materials file. Go to your flightgear data directory Materials/base/materials-base.xml and comment out line 409
Code: Select all
<effect>Effects/transition-base-grass-inverse</effect>
. That should get rid of the effect loading those .dds textures.
However I don't think that's the actual issue.

It will be fixed for the final release.

Oh ok, thank you. :)

I changed the log level from "alert" to "warn", and here's my new console message:

Hm, looks like a UFO only issue. Try another plane.

Alright.
This time, I used Helijah's V22 Osprey... still crashes.

The thing is, the GUI loads and even the HUD comes up, but right before I expect the actual plane to pop up, FG decides to crash...

I know the message doesn't appear at the moment it crashes, but is it possible that the "Unable to load the protocol configuration file: Failed to open file
at C:/Program Files (x86)/FlightGear/data/Protocol/.xml" message is the culprit?
Look for "B-BIRD" "N127KY" or "AVA0004" -that's me.

Despite having over 1700 posts here, I am not even close to being the most skilled guy here... I'm just words and bad drawing, not experience. :P

Do a reinstall. That's all I can say.

That message isn't normal - it may well be related. Looks like something is wrong with your command-line parameters to fgfs. Can you post the complete command-line please - either the line you used to launch fgfs directly, or the line shown in the fgrun launcher (should start with something like "fgfs... --aircraft=... " etc.

What's --generic=socket,in,5,,5500,tcp, doing there? It lacks a protocol file at the end (after tcp,). Go to Advanced > Input/Output on the last page of FGRun and remove it.

Ok, remove this bit from your command-line:
kyokoyama wrote in Fri Jul 13, 2012 7:12 pm:
Code: Select all
  --generic=socket,in,5,,5500,tcp,

This is an invalid/incomplete option and at least causing the error message you mentioned. Otherwise, append the missing configuration file after the "tcp,". Each generic protocol requires a config file - and it's missing here.
Not sure if this could somehow cause a crash later on - but it's possible at least.

Edit: Ah, Gijs was too fast ;-).
