View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ootp8

March 31st, 2008, 04:46 AM
I'm running Xubuntu 8.04 (it's a WUBI install, if that makes a difference) with the nVidia restricted drivers, and I'm getting some bad graphical glitching when I try to play Out of the Park Baseball:


Essentially, when I mouse over things, they start jumping around and becoming pretty much unreadable. There's nothing graphically fancy going on in the game - certainly nothing fancy at the splash screen. When I run from the terminal, it doesn't spit anything out, errors or otherwise. If anybody has any ideas what to look into, I'd appreciate it.

- You could try testing different registry settings. Open a text editor and create an empty text file. Copy&paste:


- Save it as: "test1.reg" (make sure the VideoMemorySize is correct). Import it into the wine registry, using:

regedit test1.reg

- Now run the game to see if things have changed. If not, try different settings. (It's now easier to just run regedit and change things manually). Possible settings:

| |
| +->DirectDrawRenderer
| | [Select what backend to use for DDraw. Valid options are:
| | gdi - Use GDI to draw on the screen (slow but reliable) (default)
| | opengl - Use OpenGL (fast but not all programs work correctly)
| | see http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information]
| |
| +->RenderTargetLockMode
| | [Selects which mode is used to read and write the framebuffer while it is locked.
| | auto: same as readdraw at the moment, will do benchmarks and use best method later(default)
| | disabled: effectively disables render target locking
| | readdraw: uses glReadPixels for reading, glDrawPixels for drawing
| | readtex: reading with glReadPixels, drawing by drawing a textured quad
| | texdraw: readback using a texture, drawing with glDrawPixels
| | textex: readback using a texture, drawing with a textured quad
| | see http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information]
| |
| +->OffscreenRenderingMode
| | [Selects which mode is used to render offscreen images/textures.
| | backbuffer: the rendering is done in the backbuffer (default)
| | pbuffer: uses PixelBuffers
| | fbo: uses Framebuffer object]
| |
| +->UseGLSL
| | [When set to "disabled", this disables the use of GL Shading Language for vertex
| | and pixel shaders, it will result in a fallback to ARB shaders. By default GLSL
| | is enabled when available. (It is default as of 29/10/2007 or Wine 0.9.49)
| |
| +->VideoMemorySize
| [Sets the amount of emulated video memory. Default is a simple autodetection
| based on the card type guessed from OpenGL strings and extensions]

- First thing I would look at is the OffscreenRenderingMode. For more info, see:

Thanks, I'll give that a shot.

Turns out it was a driver issue. Rolling back to to the 96.43.05 drivers with EnvyNG seems to do the trick. Allegedly, there's a problem with the game's built-in FTP (which makes online leagues a bit tricky), but that can be dealt with.

FWIW, OOTP9 was just released yesterday, and also seems to work just fine in Wine.
