[Bug] X-ray glasses stale first frame


Recommended Posts

When playing Iris and Written in Stone, I noticed a graphical glitch with the x-ray glasses.

When the x-ray glasses are activated, the first frame of the fade to x-ray vision is the last frame of the previous x-ray glasses usage.

To reproduce:

  1. Use the x-ray glasses and look at something easily recognizable, such as a light source.
  2. Turn off the x-ray glasses.
  3. Look at something else.
  4. Use the x-ray glasses, and you should for a moment see the last thing you were looking at from #1.

What could be causing that?


I don't know if it is related, but I've noticed something similar with other (animated) fades:

  1. The pop-up note in the upper-left corner will start at 100% opacity and then reset near 0% before fading in to 100% opacity.
  2. Loading a new mission or loading a save will have a fullscreen graphical blink. It might be the last frame of the previous scene or the 100% -> 0% -> 100% opacity fade issue.

@duzenko Hey, checking on the status of this.

Has this been fixed? If not, does this have a bug tracker ticket?


I would think we don't have a ticket yet for this - feel free to create.

The big problem here is it's hard for me to notice that single bad frame.

Can you help with testing? You'd need to run a dev build and get to the point where you can reproduce it

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
