For some reason when selecting the FSport mediavps as a mod, my screen seams to flicker incessantly. FSopen log attached

Well, you could try getting rid of -no_vsync.

Unrelated, but I'm also not sure why you have -no_ap_interrupt in your commandline. In addition, -mipmap doesn't really do anything these days (as the wiki will tell you).

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

hmm, thanks for the suggestion, but that didn't do the trick, this only happens with fsport-mediavps, not with any other mod. Might be something wrong with how I installed it, what files am I supposed to have in my fsport mediavps folder?

I find it hard to imagine how even bad assets could cause screen flickering, and I don't see anything glaring sticking out in your file structure. Try turning off -post_process?

I fixed the problem, for some reason I needed to run as administrator, which is kind of weird but whatever, your response is much appreciated however.

I hate it when I ask for help only to find my problem was super simple to fix  :banghead: I always feel so stupid.  :nono:
In any case, fsport 3.5 is looking great!  :)

:wtf:


That.. is interesting.  Not running as admin caused screen flickering.  :confused:  But only on FSPort.  What is this I don't even....
