4.0.1.2 screen not updating completely

Post by filbo » Sat Feb 24, 2018 2:17 am

I'm playing an EMC level, play until I die, then '51555' (warp forward until before death), game resumes with the displayed frame not centered on the player; I can't see myself and die. More details later if this is insufficient... family leaving this minute to potluck!

It really seems to be about not scrolling the view frame to keep up with the player.

Attached: setup.conf(.zip), though I doubt you'll need it. (After setup.conf.xz was rejected for 'bad extension'...)

... and being scrolled far away from the starting point. e.g. play a level where you start out in the middle, play until you're all the way left or right. Then 'warp forward' from zero to there.

Oops... haven't tested this yet, but this sounds like an unwanted side effect of commit 727d3b5f ("added some performance tuning for "autotest" and warp mode"), which apparently causes some redraw problems when such mode changes to normal mode again.

Will have a look at this soon!

OK, did a quick check, and I can see where the problem occurs. Should be fixed soon!

OK, this was a nasty regression caused by the performance tuning for tape testing and warp mode introduced with commit 727d3b5f.

I've fixed it; please "git pull" and retry.

If it works for you, too, I would throw it out as 4.0.1.3.

Just playing a level or two, it is clearly behaving way better. I'd say it's fixed. Thanks!
