Some bugs in Sail Simulator

Postby Avel » Sun 28 Nov 2004 - 12:53

The game hangs sometimes :(
Specially when i use the 'positionning' facility and when i move some instruments's windows.

This appens with my (big) PC, with a ATI Radeon 9800 XT video card.

It seems to work fine on my 'portable' Toshiba with a Nvidia GeForce4 420

Someone has same problems or an explanation ?

I'm having also troubles with the SS 42, although I have a (big) machine... with a Geforce MX4000
I just think it doesn't run on very fast machines! And the Stentec helpdesk doesn't reply at all!!
Good luck!

Copy of what I posted on windows opening thread.

I am runing an ATI radeon 9800 pro and seems to run OK.
So perhaps something to do with the way the card of computer is set up etc.

The only problem I have, like you, is when I go to alt. environment settings I can't get back to game unless control, alt plus del, to get task manager up then swith to program which returns it back. Thats at 800 x 600. Not sure if that works on higher screen settings., but I just restart game.

When I go to environment settings at 800 x 600 it remains on game and I click the screen with mouse that takes me to the panel to change. OK it then I get task manager up control/alt/del up to switch back to game.

Mototboat simulator seems to work OK though.
Probably SS5 will work OK but that seems a long way away at present.

I just updated the ati driver as couldn't get "Blender" 3D program, to work properly but the latest driver seems to have fixed that at least so can continue to make content for both sims.
