Shadows glitchy in SGS on ATI graphics under Linux

Postby Yfrwlf » Sat Apr 16, 2011 4:10 am

The shadows in SG2:S are glitchy with the latest video drivers from ATI under Ubuntu 11.04. I tried tweaking many different settings with no effect. Doesn't seem like it goes away unless you just disable shadows. Is there a fix for this? Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks. ^^

Sorry to hear - could you post a screenshot? It would help a bit.

Since all screen capturing fails for OGL games on Linux right now for whatever reason (get black windows with all the programs I tried), I'll post a camera shot. See how the bushes are squares? The light isn't coming through the polygons in the appropriate places.

that shadow bug when flashlight is turned on seems fixed in the 11.5 catalyst. at least works fine for me now.

Confirmed that these glitches were all a driver bug. I'm not having any more shadow glitches after upgrading to fglrx/AMD/ATI driver 11.5!
