GLES + sw renderer fatal error

Postby Basil Murdfield » Fri Sep 24, 2021 7:43 pm

4.7.0 and g4.8pre-4, nvidia, intel

GZDoom has a repeatable fatal error if GZDoom is in GLES and I turn on Doom Software or Truecolor SW renderer and either start a new game or the game is already running.

Run GZDoom without ini.
From Options > Set video mode: Set the Preferred Rendering API to OpenGL ES.
Restart GZDoom and start a new game.
From Options > Set video mode: Set the Render Mode to Doom Software Renderer or Truecolor SW.

gzdoom.exe +set vid_preferbackend 3 +set vid_rendermode 0 -skill 4 -warp 1 -iwad doom2.wad
gzdoom.exe +set vid_preferbackend 3 +set vid_rendermode 1 -skill 4 -warp 1 -iwad doom2.wad

Execution could not continue.
Unable to map buffer for software rendering

Noticed this as I had a key bind to an alias to swap the render modes. If SW modes won't work with GLES would it be possible, say, totally disable them mixing up?

The software renderer does not work on the GLES backend, for that you either have to use the full GL backend of softpoly.
Yes, they need to be disabled if GLES is active.
