Ctd With Widescreen Resolution And Direct3D

Today, 07:09 AM

Hi guys, so i am a bit at my wits end here and cant figure out a solution.

I have w10 and upgraded to an amd radeon rx6800xt. Trying to run gpl in opengl i get black menus but it runs, when i enter the track i have corrupted graphics (some textures show up white) and it sooner or later crashes or hardlocks the system. So that option seems out with amd gpu.

With direct3d v2 i can run gpl just fine at all 16:9 resolutions, but as soon as i select my native screens res 2560x1080 and then try to enter the the race track after menu, i hear sound for a split second then it crashes to desktop. I dug around thru the forums, web and solutions for a few days and tried a lot of things suggested but to no result. I tried the old 2004 demo (doesnt run with old rasters) as well as the new 2020 one too, same behaviour.
I also tried to run with linux mint but i am not ready yet to make the switch to it and my tests in a vm were a bit wonky.

Any ideas and things i could try appreciated.

Engine Sound Cuts Out

Today, 04:15 AM

Under heavy braking, about when I drop to second gear, the engine sound disappears for a few seconds then returns.  Quite disconcerting when entering  a turn to think the engine just died.  This has occurred with several '67 cars tonight (been running the '55s mostly recently, I don't brake heavily in them), haven't tried other mods yet.  I don't recall this happening in the past.

Windows 11 Anybody?

25 Nov 2022

Posted by quattr020V in Your rig or Manufacturer's stuff
Anyone tried GPL on Win 11 yet?

Windows 10 upgrades end Jan23 but support continues until  Oct25

I am told there is not much difference between them. Trouble is I am upgrading my wife's computer  as well, and we both have  some old programs which have to run in compataibility mode for Win 95/98 on her XP machine and my Win7machine, and I don't want to upset the CEO :sweat:

Formula Wreck

23 Nov 2022

Posted by jgf in Motorsport Chat
No idea where or when this was taken, I assume the formula car did some "agricultural racing" and hit a parked sedan.  Can anyone shed light on this?
