IWBTG:G Stage 1-2 Unplayable GFX Bug
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:08:47 pm »


>> Video showing and explaining bug here. <<

Basically, Stage 1-2 is unplayable for me due to a nasty bug. The background of the level is somehow being rendered over the foreground, on top of the character, doodads, anything related to the gameplay itself. Video shows the bug in action.

I am having tons of fun with IWBTG:Gaiden, but this bug won't let me play past 1-2!

Hope someone can help and/or this can be fixed in the upcoming patch!

Thanks,

lvl2bug

Honestly I have no idea and seems like something that might be beyond my power. Did it work in the first patch?

Hey Kayin,

Unfortunately I have never played the level before, so I'm not sure. I'm playing the game on Windows XP. I'm using the copy of the game that can be found here: http://gamejolt.com/freeware/games/action/i-wanna-be-the-guy-gaiden/8598

It's strange, because every other graphic in the game so far (level select, stage 1-1, etc) shows and plays just fine. If there's any more info that might help let me know.

PS: Thanks for making yet another amazing game, big fan.

The background of the level is somehow being rendered over the foreground, on top of the character, doodads, anything related to the gameplay itself. Video shows the bug in action.

Seems more like "Get Ready" is usually it's own layer along with the top/bottom title bars, but is taken as part of the foreground layer during this bug and takes the rest of the foreground with it when it flashes/disappears. Could be wrong though.

The background isn't "on top", the foreground is just disappearing with "get ready".

I'm a bit busy. Could someone get him a file to get him to level 3 to see if he has the same problems?

Hey guys,

I'm at work right now but as soon as I get home I will try reproducing the issue on the older version of the .exe as Kayin suggested. (Original IWBTGG release found here: http://gamejolt.com/freeware/games/i-wanna-be-the-guy-gaiden/files/8598/)

If you can get me a save file on 1-3, I will test that too.

Yeah, it looks that way. It's definitely a layer thing.

I'm going to release a quick fix soon for the game in general. With it I'm going to try and include a button to forcefully enable all layers in the hopes it might help you.

It might be this weekend though, so sorry if you have to wait. But hopefully this will work out. The thing about the blinking 'get ready' logo has me interested though.

No rush at all.

I'll try what I described above when I get home tonight regardless. And yes, it is curious, because 1-1 works just fine, even during the flashing level intro display. Is there anything particular about 1-2 what could cause the layering to be tied to the START screen like that?

Not really, outside the fact that it might be the stage that uses the most v-ram. What type of graphics card are you using?

Ok I have tried it with the original download from gamejolt (iwbtgg.exe) and the recent patch (iwbtgg1d1b.exe), bug is present on both executables.

Graphics card is a 512 MB ATI Radeon HD 4850

PS: Love the way people are encouraged to patch to most recent version. Nice touch.  ;D

The graphics setting handles things more like death splatter and particles. That won't help (Though thanks for suggesting it). Patch SHOULD be out tomorrow and reactivating layers should be on the F11 and F12 pages. But incase that doesn't work (and I think it won't, not to be a pessimist but who knows) try updating your video drivers.

Anyways sorry for the wait. I don't wanna be super aggressive and often with these 'patches'. I wouldn't care if they were real patches but.. yeah.
