View Full Version : SMD Problem

09-15-2001, 03:14 AM
I'm having a problem with SM and it's quite annoying ( I know I've already posted this in the Demo Released thread but no one seems to know or is not answering. There is no Main Menu the pic shows the opening screen to the game for me.

This is how the menu loooks in the game, As you can the track and backround look fine but the Menu is completly screwed up. That roller coaster is one I'm making using that screwed up menu. I pracicaly had to memorize the entire menu. It also sucks because I can't use LIM's beacuse I don't the what speed they are on. I have DirectX 8.0a and updated my driver to the latest one. I use a ATI Rage 128 PRO PCI TMDS, could that have anything to do with it?

it looks like you have a problem there, that coaster looks pretty good though, it is most likely ure graphic card, i have no idea how to fix it

I finished that particular roller coaster and it is pictured below. I had the hardest time finishing it, and if you can't tell, I LOVE overbanking. I am curently working on my next creation.

Turn Off Full Screen Anti-Aliasing, the Demo doesn't support it but It will work for the final version. :D

How do I go about doing that?

Well I've never use a ATI 128... but this is how it works for most cards....

Go to Start, Control Panel, the Choose Display, the Click The Settings Tab, and Then Click the Advanced button, this will bring up a new window, look for a tab that may say something like "ATI Rage 128 or something like that and Please Post Back with what options you may have in front of you.

Ok I went to the Direct 3D tab and my options are:

Wait for Vertical sync(checked)
Enable anti-aliasing(unchecked)
Use palette based textures(unchecked)
compressed texture format(checked)
Table Fog Support(checked)

Uncheck wait for Vertical Sync and then reboot and tell me if that made a difference.

Nope, no difference.
