Solved: 5 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 5 Hours, 14 Minutes, 27 Seconds ago RE: Amnesia The Dark Descent Demo problem

On linux I gave: "Segmentation Fault" (I'm using newest open Radeon drivers)
On windows this same problem like others...

I think it's a problem with Frame Buffer, and Resolution. Why? On linux "Segmentation Fault" mean "undefinied memory at this address", or "out of table" (i don't know how to explain it in englishSad, trying to get value that pointer points to, but memory at this address were not reserved). So on linux it's giving that error, but on windows game engine tilling that in pre-menu.
So if there were no crash during opening in-game menu/inventory/journal, the interface should be tilled too.

But why it's only on X-series? Maybe drivers: ATI stopped support for older cards more than year ago. Newer drivers (ex. 10-2) for older card's haven't any new features, just small fixes.
In-game textures looks good on models.

Please check code, where game engine creates framebuffers and draws them.

I noticed that the textures for example startup_fg_logo.jpg haven't 2-power sizes. This file has 1024x768. When I resized it to 1024x1024 there were no tilling. I will check on linux, if that resolve "Segmentation Fault" problem. If it will, this can be the reason of crash. Older cards (or drivers) can have problem with unsquared textures. I had similar problem with my game.

Can someone with HD-series card try ex. 9.01 drivers?

Sorry for my english

I'm having the same problem with Amnesia as everyone else here does. I have Radeon X1950 Pro if anyone is wondering. Thomas and everyone at Frictional Games, please hurry up and fix the problem. I've finished the first Penumbra, it was awesome and Amnesia looks even better, I also prefer it's style then Penumbra's and I can't wait to play it.

Those segfaults sound mostly like using GL extensions that are not supported by the card/driver (thus returning NULL) - because you have to fetch their address first.

ATI cards have SERIOUS problems with non-power-of-two textures, I had problems with that myself at my university (half of the PCs in the pool had ATI cards, half had NVidia, we were programming GL). It can bring the machine down to a crawl. Maybe that's the problem under win?

An update for the game downloaded for steam last night and I thought it was to fix this problem (which I also have, Can't access any menus or read notes) but it wasn't. I hope this get's fixed soon. I have an ATI radeon x1300-X1550.

The issues seems to be fixed, there is an updated demo released that so far has been reported to be working. The full game will get an update next week, as we are fixing more issues and want to release all in a single patch.

Why not just release a patch which fixes our problem to begin with? i mean, ive been stuck with a game i cant play for weeks, because it freezes everytime i try to open up a menu, and as far as i can tell.. Everyone else has the same problem.


Is there anyway to use some of the files from the fixed Demo to fix the full game ?

EDIT: Just tried the so called fixed demo, and its NOT fixed. The game still freezes when you try to open up any menus.. I give up. Asking steam to get my money back
