If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

Clipping error on items with multi core

Post by Captain Keen burner »

This is maybe more of a bug, but I’ve noticed that running software mode with multicore enabled can create clipping errors in maps on items like pickups and also stuff like trees or large enemies. A perfect example is the new boss in Doom Zero, or the trees in Map 32 of Moonblood. I know you can somewhat fix this in the maps but a lot of mappers don’t and I was wondering if there was a way to keep multicore enabled for FPS but change the rendering for items so these clipping errors no longer appear so frequently. Thanks!

That's not a bug, it's due to sliced rendering.

Is there any way to fix/change it without making map specific changes or reverting to single core rendering?

Yes and no. The only way to correctly fix this is make GZDoom calculate the right render radius of actors. Unfortunately there's nobody around that knows how to do this, so I'm afraid your only option is to turn off the sliced rendering.
