AMC TC 3.6 released!  "Now with Polymost support!"

#31

Sangman, I have tried launching it after deleting the "settings.cfg" and the situation remains the same. It was a nice try though, deleting stuff already worked in the past ...

Here's my log of this test, though I doubt you'll see anything special in it, since I always have to "stop the process" :
Spoiler


BTW, it may be a dumb question but, is the fact that I'm using Win7 potentially responsible ?
Cause, if the build is meant to use Win10 then we would already have our answer to the problem >_>

I'm not sure if it's enough (I'm not sure how you check your specs, hence why I was so reticent to doing it) but ...
It seems I have a 2.00 GHz AMD processor and 4Go or RAM. Also it seems I have an NVidia nForce 10/100 card. I can't find more than that >_>


I also know that the processor is 1 core, which may partly explain the lagg issues I have with mirrors but I ain't convinced.

nForce was discontinued over a decade ago, and only having a single-core 2.00GHz processor is extremely low-end, no wonder you're having problems. Your system is ancient.

The only thing I can suggest you try is updating your drivers, but considering how old your hardware is I doubt that will help much.

Well it may be old but it still works fine. Though, like everything, it always ends up too obsolete at some point, I am already happy that AMC's classic mode runs well and Duke HRP polymost too (with older builds though)
Anyway, Classic runs so well compared to before, I can deal without polymost. Let's hope you'll find a solution for the other people with the same problem still !

Were not engine programmers though, so that seems unlikely. What weve done are a few trivial tweaks here and there like raising the sound limit. Its a far cry from implementing entirely new renderer features such as texture filtering. In that case, if it were so simple, the devs would have added it themselves by now.

Tried to making it work with the old custom r6775 and AMC_SOUNDS.CON seems to have a major issue.

Quote

CODE/AMC_SOUNDS.CON:6299: error: exceeded sound limit of 4096.
CODE/AMC_SOUNDS.CON:6688: error: exceeded sound limit of 4096.

I don't know if it is generated by using the old snapshot and it does not occur to who can start with the new one, but these are the last lines before the crash.

YES, v3.6.1e is applied.

There is a reason why we're using a custom build, you know.

yeah I thought I'd specifically say it can only work with our custom snapshot for fun you know, not for any actual specific reason like it will not work or anything like that.

I got a few things to report, before I leave.

1_ The door to the arms dealer in Sang's portion of Arsia Mons is still broken. It won't open with the password.

2_ There is a glitch with Gas Masks. When you get out of a zone that requires it, the character doesn't remove it. It will eventually be removed but not before a long long while. In Megabase you can play with the door in order to fix the issue quickly but not in other levels.

3_ Flechette Shells are randomly (and quite often) extremely powerfull ! The PowerSuit in Providence went down after barely 2 or 3 hits ! I could also beat the two Zilla Powersuits (nice surprise BTW) with less than 10 of these.

4_ Highwire's default shotgun is still subject to the ammo glitch from before. As usual, just having the weapon triggers the glitch, and I still have no clue as to what's causing it and found no way to counter it >_>

BTW, so far, only Megabase has a small missing texture problem. Other levels from Ep 1 and 2 are safe.
BTW 2, having the possibility to disable voxels is a feaking blessing in certain levels for performance. I highly thank you for giving this option !

We still can't recreate the arms dealer thing, I don't know what you're doing.

The 2nd one isn't a glitch, your character doesn't remove the gas mask until all active enemies have been killed or they've been out of sight for a while - this is so you don't pull the mask off whilst in the middle of combat

Oh okay for #2 O_o, I would have never imagined it was a feature ^^

Well for Arsia Mons I have no idea either. I go talk to the people, they give me the password, I say the password and nothing happens >_> I tried both with and without trying the "bloodshot" just in case it could have an influence. I also thought it was because of the lagging in the level because of the ships traffic but I don't see how this could prevent an actor from working ...

The way I see it, the problem may be either in the map file, or in the release. Or maybe in the fact I use Win7.

I forgot to mention it but this has (likely) been fixed with Patch v3.6.2

Thanks for hosting.

If it is the latest patch, could you update the version number? Currently it's listed as "v3.6" which is misleading.

The latest patch is a separate download linked below the main V3.6. If you don't scroll down far enough I could see someone missing it. They are separate downloads though.

is there a difference in the source for 3.6 vs 3.62? if so, where do I find the source to build the exe for version 3.6.2?

so there is no difference in source in the exe between 3.6 and 3.62? Because the file on there said modified 23 days ago, before the patch came out.

The patch includes the exe built from the current master on the repo. What changed was a fix to the rotated textures disappearing if per-map tiles were used.

I've forwarded this fix to the eduke32 devs for the record.

There seems to be a problem with my display.
When I start amctc.exe (32-bit version) and the game starts, the intro video works fine but the menu is a black screen.
The game still works, as I can hear the menu sounds of selecting and I can quit the game fine, but I can't see anything else than a black screen.

My specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 950
4 GB RAM
GeForce 9600 GT 1 GB
Windows Vista SP2

Do you own a copy of Duke3D? Have you tried running that in OpenGL with this version of eduke32?
https://dukeworld.co.../20190919-8133/

Just trying to see if it's the mod or eduke causing problems

I also have an AMD phenom, but X6. eduke32 doesn't like AMDs from what I'm told. That maybe your problem, but look for a second opinion/observation.

Try running the AMC TC in 8bit / classic video mode.

If you don't get the black screen, then your video card is probably too dated.

Recent snapshots have left behind older hardware.

One of the doors in Egypt F.O.B is broken as of the latest patch (3.6.2) It's the one where the artifact is shaped like an hourglass. If you enter it, all you get is a black screen, and not transferred to that particular level.

#59

So I tried running it in software mode and I don't get any black screen.
I then switched in the options menu to OpenGL and it worked, although I didn't notice any difference...
Plus the AMC base lags like crazy... I think I will need to upgrade my specs :( Thank you for the support anyway!

Yes. I get major lag too. It's probably our AMD cpus as eduke32 was built on Intel.
