Major Bugs In 4.8.0 graphical and sound so far.

Postby Abner Choblinghodge » Thu Jun 16, 2022 11:54 pm

So I tried converting over to V 4.8.0 only to have major graphical bugs especially when accessing menus they'd flicker especially if you accessed them before starting a game. If you had screen wipe set to melt something weird would happen when the melt occurred I had to go to different one to get it to quit. Also sounds for weapons would either disappear or loop so I went back to V 4.7.1 and all bugs disappeared. Clearly this version was not ready for a release yet. These bugs existed in Brutal Doom V21 and Don Ramon's Duke Weapons & Monsters Mod. Everything works fine in V 4.7.1, but in V 4.8.0 all heck breaks loose.

Clearly you seem to be the only one having such major problems.

But before anybody can help you you got to post your system's specs.

We're going to need some specs and (hopefully) some footage of the problem occurring.

These are my specs, I run the game off a microsd card tho.
I could take a photo of it occuring, it only happens on first menu access

It happens every time with any mod at all like nashgore, rarely with no mods

I apologize that I can't do footage or a picture, but hopefully this will describe in more detail what I experienced. So when I converted all my games over to GZDoom 4.8.0 rather with Doom 1 & 2, Doom 2 Reloaded, Doom Zero, SGTMARKIV Original Starter Pack, and Final Doom rather it be with Brutal Doom V21 or Don Ramon's Duke Nukem Weapons & Monsters Mod V10b on random the options menu would flicker back and forth text making it impossible to read the options menu, but as far I know this did not occur in game just when you first opened GZDoom 4.8.0 and went directly to the options menu. This glitch could also occur in game, but I didn't play long enough to find out. When using the feature screen wipe style melt when it would do the melt I would see some weird graphical issues occur, but switching to any other wipe style seem to fix the problem this was with all games and map packs I listed above. The sound issue occurred mostly in Don Ramon's Duke Nukem Weapons & Monsters Mod V10b with the machine gun and shocker gun. When using the machine gun the shooting sound disappeared totally. When using the shocker gun when using the charge up feature of the gun and releasing the sound would continuously loop till I switched weapons then it would go away, but if I repeated it it'd happen again. In Brutal Doom V21 it was really hard to tell if sound disappeared or not, but I think it might of with the mancubus cannon/flamethrower, but I could be wrong there. As far as the weapons acting up in Brutal Doom V21 if using the Give All cheat the machine gun I think started with 500 ammo instead of what I had set in the ammo.txt file for Brutal Doom V21 which was 9999 and the gun would flicker, but if I switched from the machine gun and come back to it I think it fixed itself!? This is all I experienced when using 4.8.0 so far, but I'm sure there are more bugs in it then just this that need addressing. Just as a side note not a single one of this problems I'm having existed in 4.7.1 so that's why I went back to it and everything is working just fine now. I was lucky I had backups or I would have been up a creek without a paddle getting my games back to normal.
