gzdoom 4.8.0 Half of the sky is missing.

Hello, I've just compiled 4.8.0.

My first issue was that gzdoom couldn't find gzdoom.pk3. I had to change dir to where the file is (/usr/local/share/games/doom/) and the run gzdoom. This wasn't an issue in 4.7.1.

Another issue is with sky rendering. Both in Hexen and Doom2 half of the sky is missing. No such issue for Realms of Cronos

Do you have a screenshot of the problem?

Just run it from where you compiled it, don't sudo make install it.

What renderer and chipset do you use? Your description reminds me of this issue, which might be your problem.

Damn, it's working ok today. I checked on Doom, Doom2, Hexen and Hexen Deathkings…

The renderer is Vulkan. I'm on Slackware Linux. My GPU is Radeon RX550.

Cheers for the input guys. I'll post again if something new pops up.

As for the missing gzdoom.pk3. I've always installed gzdoom this way. That is, I use cmake to compile, install in a temp location with DESTDIR so that I can create a package and then I install the package using Slackware's installpkg command.
Now, if I start gzdoom from location other than /usr/local/share/games/doom/ (where gzdoom.pk3 is located) I get the error the file is missing. Strange. This path is included in my ~/.config/gzdoom/gzdoom.ini

Don't count your chickens, the sky issue only appears sometimes from what I've seen. As for missing gzdoom.pk3, I also install to a non-standard location, you sure you're putting it under FileSearch and not IWADSearch and just as the directory? My example.

Code: Select all

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=$HOME/iwad
[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=$HOME/pwad/mod
Path=$HOME/pwad/map
Path=$HOME/opt/gzdoom/share/games/doom

You were right. The sky is missing again :)

as for my config

[code]
[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=.
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=~/.config/gzdoom
Path=/usr/local/share/doom
Path=/usr/local/share/games/doom
Path=/usr/share/doom
Path=/usr/share/games/doom

[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=~/.config/gzdoom
Path=/usr/local/share/doom
Path=/usr/local/share/games/doom
Path=/usr/share/doom
Path=/usr/share/games/doom
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
[/code]

I tried commenting out everything except for Path=~/.config/gzdoom from IWDASearch.Directories but it still couldn't find the file. The actual location is /usr/local/share/games/doom/gzdoom.pk3
I think it's the standard location.

IWADSearch.Directories is only relevant for e.g. doom2.wad. gzdoom.pk3 and any -file loaded add-ons are searched for in FileSearch.Directories. In my case it's at $HOME/opt/gzdoom/share/games/doom/gzdoom.pk3 so, I don't know. You have read access to the directory and file? It is for the same version of GZDoom? Building from source should have done it. If all else fails rename your INI file and see if the default one finds it.

It's the file that came with this installation. When I run gzdoom from the directory containing gzdoom.pk3 it works fine

I've noticed that the sky isn't always half black. Sometimes half of it has slightly different colours. Like there was some kind of filter on half of the sky

here's an example. Sometimes the coloured portion of the sky is just black. Sometimes it works fine. And in this example I've just noticed the mountains are affected by this as well.

Again, this is this issue.

Yes, it looks like it's the same issue.

Cheers.

I've just come across the same issue myself when attempting to build a newer version, and from a quick look at the file search, it's not actually searching anywhere but the working directory, not sure why that's changed but the INI paths are not used. For now I've resorted to more or less mimicking how the official .deb is laid out as a proper /opt style setup with the wrapper script. It'll do for now.
