M1 Tank Platoon 2

Postby Jason1 » Wed May 25, 2011 5:43 am

Thanks for keeping Glide alive! Here's a problem report that may be of interest:

M1 Tank Platoon 2 seems like it nearly works with nGlide. Initially, it looks quite correct when you first select a 3D view.

Once you start to play however, the most glaring visual problem is that parts of the terrain (near the player's position) rise abruptly in the vertical as you turn or move the camera, almost like a wall is forming on one side of the screen. Additionally, the textures slip and shift on these terrain anomalies.

Zeus --
1GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 6870; Catalyst 11.5
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit; SP1 installed

Thanks for the link Gamecollector --
I have an older PC with an Nvidia card; I can check that and report back...

I checked my other computer -- the game displays correctly on an Nvidia card! The problem there is that it drops to desktop when completing the mission (ie, when going from the 3D portion of the game to the 2D mission debriefing screen).

I really should consider buying a Radeon.

Gamecollector, Jason1 - do you think Radeon 5670 will be good choice?

Well, any Rageon from HD2xxx is supported by newest catalyst (11.5) and have dx9 support.
So the main criteria is - the price, not the GPU family...

Yes, but that's not just 11.5 issue. I'm mostly interested with RHW-issue (http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/3928/driver2.jpg). Can you confirm that this happens with Driver game on your HD 2600 and HD 5730 too?

The Z-issue (F-16 MRF, F-22 L 3, Mig29-F) was another story. I fixed it already.

EDIT: Please post the screenshots showing bugs from Red Baron 2 and Red Baron 3D too.

The 5670 seems like a good low-cost card, though it's been out for a while now:
