    I don’t know who is the most loserishest :

    1. We “whole bunch of useless … losers who cant [sic] help anyone out”

      OR

    2. The anonymous loser who can’t see all the posts where us losers did help each other :
      1. http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=5250&highlight=#5250
      2. http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=5237&highlight=#5237
      3. http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=5224&highlight=#5224
      4. etc. etc.

    I thought that our community of players was very helpful with each others’ gaming problems. Maybe I was wrong.

    But who’s the most loserishest? Our community of players or the acting-like-a-13-year-old lamer who anonymously curses our community?

    You decide.

    hello.

    if you want my advice i have two suggestions to the anonymous poster and to “drywater”

    1st to the less than clean mouth “Anonymous” poster please avoid posting that kind of stuf. there are many youngsters who access this site regularly and we all do not want to have to put up with an “adult” rated stamp on this game.

    And the 2nd to “drywater”. when i originally installed this game i had the same problem if i were you i would turn off the tank skins in the game settings. that usually caused me the most trouble. also post your system specs so that those who are familar with these things will have a better idea on how to help you. they might be able to say directly what you need to do to fix the problem.

    hope this helps 😀

    As has been pointed out already, “this kid drywater” did not post enough information, and dracon23 posted a “best fix” for the little info that was provided. But if our “lack of assistance” keeps away “losers such as yourself”, glad to “not be of help”. 😈

    Wow, you’re intelligent. It’s not like you are helping anything either by being an idiot. Are you angry because your mommy won’t let you play Scorched3D because of tank violence and are taking it out on the forum community?

    Like the OP, I can’t seem to stop my client from crashing.
    It doesn’t seem to matter what I do, but I can never get Scorched3d to stay running for an entire round now.

    Main Settings: 1024×768, Large dialog/fonts, Misc options off except “invert key elevation”.

    Troubleshooting Detail and textures are right down, every box here it checked except “Don’t draw water”, “Don’t animate water”, and “No tank skins”.

    Hardware: XP1700+, 1024MB RAM, GF4Ti4200 (128MB).

    I HAD it working for over an hour the day that I installed it, and I was running it with all the settings up nice and high.

    Any help???

    Hiya Tux – I’m guessing by the name that you’re running Linux – assuming you are, have you tried the newest driver (came out not too long ago, version 6106)

    Also (still assuming you’re running Linux), anything interesting in your /var/log/messages after the crash occurs?

    Might also be worth checking your /var/log/XFree86.log file.
    With that hardware I would think you’d be able to crank all the setting right up.

    Cheers!

    If you can compile it and give me a core dump that would be appreciated.

    Yes, I’m running Linux, as you correctly assumed.
    Yes, I’m running the latest 6106 drivers, again correctly assumed (and a bit older than “not too long ago”).
    Yes, I can crank the settings up to full, as still get reasonable FPS. :D:D

    I have compiled it but dunno where it drops it’s cores too.
    I haven’t looked in /var/log/messages or /var/log/XFree86.0.log for anything interesting though.

    As this box happens to be dual-boot, I’ve decided to download the Windoze version and I get the same crashing, so I think it MAY be my hardware that’s playing up a bit. Could be my graphics card, as when I was first playing S3d I was at a LAN party and now I’ve brought my box back home and the journey could’ve upset the Gf4TI4200.

    Well, I think I’m getting closer to the cause of my problems…..

    It appears that Scorched it Seg faulting on me.

    # scorched3d -startclient ~/.scorched3d/singlecustom.xml
    Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

    That’s with a fresh install of scorched (“apt-get install scorched3d{,-d{ata,oc}}”)

    To get a core you will need to start it with the -allowexceptions flag.
    Also set “ulimit -c unlimited” in the same shell before running to allow core dumps.

    I have the core files, thanks. However they do not seem to make sense against the 37.2 linux rpms that I have tried debugging them against.
    I am sorry I am not familiar with the apt-get command does it find an RPM or compile it from scratch?

    If it does compile it then I cannot debug the core dumps as I won’t have the original source. In this case a stack dump from you is the best I can hope for.

    apt-get is to Debian as the RPM utility is to Redhat.
    It’s Debian’s package management utility that works a treat.

    The packages are .deb files and I think that I the version I’m running is a custom compile that I have done despite saying that I had done a fresh install.

    I don’t know what has happenned to the Scorched binaries/source b/w the package maintainer getting them and packaging them up into a .deb.
