[Solved] Game does not start with modifications
Hi,

i installed fs2open via the Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer and everything runs fine, when i play without any mods. but as soon as i try to start the game with a mod like mediavps_3612 or fsport-str the game crashes directly at the beginning. this means, just for 1 second appears a black screen as if the game would start properly, but the game returns to the desktop.
i'm so confused that the normal fsport and fs2 do start and the rest of the most mods produce this error.

my system:

Ubuntu 10.10
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
2 GB DDR 800
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

fs2_open.log is attached

Someone any idea what this may cause or what i'm doing wrong?

The game is choking while compiling the shaders, which indicates a probable hardware issue.

Are your graphics card drivers up to date?

If not, could you add the -no_glsl flag to your command line?

 
Re: Game does not start with modifications
thank you for the quick help

adding the -no_glsl flag did help me very well.

however, i will try to update my graphics-driver., although they weren't so old. maybe then the shaders will work.

if not, i hope there's not such a big difference between playing with or without shaders ^^

Re: Game does not start with modifications
Without shaders you won't get normal maps or postprocessing. I don't know if your video card is powerful enough for them, I'm not familiar with the model.

Re: Game does not start with modifications

ATi cards are notoriously difficult with shaders, either from the .12 MediaVPs or the MediaVPs shaders test thread.

"Compatibility Profile Context" is an interesting thing to note. nVidia cards had the same issues with a particular series where it would enable the highest possible OpenGL mode without properly supporting deprecated features. Such a card as that should be able to handle SM2.0 as well as SM3.0, but I'm not yet familiarized with tthe supported range of extensions on that card to make a certain statement.

You might find the shaders in the MediaVPs Shaders thread to be more useful, but the best results on those would be with a Nightly Build, not .12 Final.

Re: Game does not start with modifications
seemed to be, that the graphics driver from the package manager i was using in ubuntu was too old. because after updating to an actual version,  i can play the game without adding the flag to the commandline

Re: Game does not start with modifications
Be sure to use the open source drivers. The proprietary ones for older cards suck
