BUG / ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series / opengl

Post by bugreport » Thu Apr 27, 2017 7:25

BUG / ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series / opengl

tested:

over 10 different ati catalyst versions, oldest to newest
2 pcs
2 gfx
several os
wine 1.6x ( all new versions crash on startup, 1.9 and earlier work nice)
several new gzdoom versions 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 3.0
old versions 1.8, 1.9
other games: some q1,2 source ports, q4, rage (work)

catalyst older than 10.5 have shader version 1.5
10.5 and newer have shader 3.x
//________________________________________________________________________
critical bug:

all versions except some old 2.0 or 2.1(dont remember which) crash at start
with opengl 3 !!
//________________________________________________________________________
opengl 2 emulation start:
catalyst 10.4 and before have no bugs //shader 1.5
catalyst 10.5 and later are missing all textures, whitebox //shader 3.x

software :
no bugs

gzdoom 1.9 and 1.8:
no bugs

gzdoom 2.3 and later with mesa software gl:
works but expected slow
some versions are missing textures
//________________________________________________________________________
typical crash output at opengl init, likely shader related:

First of all, please post complete crash report(s).

2 different versions of xp (original)
4 different install configurations (one nearly barebones install)

of course the wine segment was only to give further maybe helpfull information
"Are you trying to run Windows version in Linux?"
successfully have run some 1.8 version and a gpl fork (gloome) on wine

i do acknowledge that wine is not a priority for the gzdoom devs at this point
(at least from what ive read if i remember correctly)

(although imho i can say its easy and fast to use a wine dev environment,
no dependency hell with only one startup file
the final step should always be a native solution obviously.
but thats just some sidenote advice, in case someone is interested)

Still waiting for CrashReport.zip file(s).

As for Wine GZDoom builds and runs fine on all major desktop OSes natively. And this is true for almost all other source ports.
I have no idea why somebody needs Wine to play Doom.

"I have no idea why somebody needs Wine to play Doom."
maybe convenience and time, unzip a new doom version and have a portable setup
that works on most systems with windows or wine. well to try new features anyway, some ports
do run bad on wine that should be mentioned !

That is correct. GZDoom only takes about 3-4 minutes to compile on my Linux system from scratch using "make -j4". What distro are you running? If it's Debian-based there are binary packages available and they will run much better than any wine version ever will.

Wine was never designed or supported for games that already have a Linux version and likewise is also true in our case here - we do not have to support it because Linux binary packages are in fact available.

There will be no fixes or workarounds for old and buggy drivers.

For example, I have mobile Radeon 4330 and it crashes on startup during compilation of shaders.
Newer drivers don't have this problem. They even update OpenGL to version 3.3 but they also introduce bunch of unrelated issues.
That's why I cannot use them and stick to the old version.

If I need to run GZDoom on this notebook I'm switching to integrated Intel graphics or using -glversion 2 command line option.

"GZDoom only takes about 3-4 minutes to compile on my Linux system from scratch using "make -j4". What distro are you running? If it's Debian-based there are binary packages available and they will run much better than any wine version ever will."

will try to compile it in future maybe, although the official ati linux drivers are older than the windows ones
for the ati 4000 series. at least win7 and xp, win8 has the same version as linux. so that probably doesnt
help with obtaining the gl 3 renderer, but more stability and fps are nice.

yes -glversion 2 works great on some ati drivers, similar framerate like 1.8.6. guess ill keep that command then
when trying some newer mods for gzdoom.

thanks for the clarification and suggestions

If -glversion 2 works it is a clear indicator that you are stuck with a broken driver. ATI did a piss poor job with their OpenGL 3 support for many years, unfortunately. It's really hit and miss which card will work and which will not.

"If -glversion 2 works it is a clear indicator that you are stuck with a broken driver. ATI did a piss poor job with their OpenGL 3 support for many years, unfortunately. It's really hit and miss which card will work and which will not."

-glversion 2 works with the hd 4000 series with drivers 10.4 and older. newer drivers the game works with gl2 but
are missing all textures (blacknwhite maps and menu) including the newest version (14.4, 04/25/2014) at least in my tests.
so probably HD 4000, HD 3000, and HD 2000 Series are not supported for gl3 but have some support for gl2.
guess my question is then: is opengl3 open for debate on these older ati hd cards ?

GZDoom should not even be using OpenGL 3 on ATI cards which do not report OpenGL4 or higher. It's probably getting confused because of the VMWare signature that often appears in Linux OpenGL implementations, though - although that might be a problem specific to Wine because on my computer it starts with OpenGL 2 just fine.

that sounds like a good explanation for wine.
but in windows opengl 3 is reported by gzdoom and then it tries to start with opengl3 or maybe opengl4 ?
e.g.:
GL_VERSION: 3.3.10237 Core Profile/Debug Context (Core profile)
GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION: 3.30
in case i dont use -glversion 2

That is not true. The original problem could be traced to one specific feature which has been disabled. I don't know what actual driver Wine uses but it looks like it is the sole reason for the problems.

The only GL 3 hardware for which OpenGL 3 is disabled is Intel HD because the drivers do not support everything that is needed.
