GZdoom 4.4.2 Freezes (Intel Graphics)

Postby Tempest Sodgened » Mon Oct 05, 2020 11:36 am

My new laptop with an "Intel UHD Graphics with Thunderbolt for Intel 10th Gen Core i5-10400H" (dell spec), periodically freezes during game play in GZDoom. It freezes in any IWAD I choose, thus not just during a certain game or level. Sometimes I can go a full day with no freezing, other days it freezes 3-4 times in a row after a few minutes of play. My old laptop with an Intel HD Graphics 4000 never locked up. I am using GZDoom 4.4.2. I don't know what else to post to give more details. about the issue.

This is a known issue, and one we have absolutely no control over. Intel Graphics drivers are extremely shitty and break at even the very slightest provocation. GZDoom cannot control this - they just break, seemingly for no reason, causing the freezes that you describe.

Sorry - but there's nothing we can do. Some users have reported changing to different driver versions helps. You can try Vulkan too ... it might help, it might not.

I wanted to see how Vulkan works and it seems to work until I get a sudden crash at a random time in a game with this message:

Execution could not continue.

Could not submit command buffer: device lost

Not sure if that is still a result of the bad Intel graphics drivers still but it seems to be what the screen freezes are like for the OpenGL render, though at some point the crashes where happening more often I think because of all that was happening at once, got tired of trying to play it at that point...

What mods were you using? Anything with major graphics changes? Because when I play PB, it freezes fairly often, but stuff like Final Doomer runs fine.

Regardless of using heavy mods or just plain vanilla, their was always the problem of it freezing or crashing.

I wonder if this has to do with Intel's later generations, because I'm on a i7-6770HQ with a Intel Iris Pro 580, and I never had anything freeze or kernel panic.

I'm kept up to date on Linux kernel releases and Mesa releases too ontop of this, currently on Linux 5.10.16 (at the time of writing) and Mesa 20.3.4, most problems I ever have are polygons corrupting all over the place and textures and sprites turning into flashing, rapidly repositioning white, green and magenta squares.

Has anyone had GZDoom (and other games) freeze or crash their iGPU within Linux, or only on Windows? Are the drivers for Intel Graphics worse on Windows than they are on Linux?

This is not relevant to Linux because the authors of the Linux drivers are open source contributors, not vendor drivers like it is with Windows.

The problem described in this thread have to do with the open source drivers.
