Problem running yarntown
« on: July 30, 2021, 11:40:14 AM »
When I try to run yarntown it starts up with the visuals being really glitchy and seems broken. I would like some help with this.

I cant replicate what you are talking about. Do you have a bug report from solarus of some sort? :O

When something like this happens, it's generally an incompatibility with your system, so Dianthus you probably wouldn't be able to replicate it. There's a number of things I know of that might cause a symptom like this.

- Your system doesn't support hardware acceleration.
    - Fix: you'll need to use to Solarus launcher, which has an option to "Force Software Rendering"
- Could be using the 64 bit version when you need to use the 32 bit version
- Need to update graphics drivers perhaps
- Your system doesn't support OpenGL

There could be other causes, but those are the ones I'm aware of.

Thanks Max, I got it to work using the Force Software Rendering. Might be quite a long time since I posted this thread. Hopefully anyone that had the same problem found this.
