I have a problem... The game doesn't work with this mod, when I run it, after few seconds it turns off and nothing happens. I have US 1.0 exe and your newest .asi loader.

Any ideas what kind of compatibility fixes SA needs? The only thing I see is broken mouse in menu.

Fix to not disable Aero for 1.0 us exe

There's a reason if aero gets disabled. actually though I can't exactly remember it

I guess it has something to do with intro videos and alt-tabbing

 

Anyway, try this

Same. The game's clean btw.

If you care about aero, rename the exe. gta_sa to gtasa or whatever. About the intro videos, some times they just don't play, you only can hear audio. My suggestion is, since there is a skip intro (eax - nvidia logo) feature on the patch, another skip for the videos. But we have fastloader too, so I don't know.

New test version!

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46581994/patchsatest/silentpatch_11_beta.zip

 

This version includes a fixed NVC shader by @The Hero, so the shader does not cause flickering anymore. Also, a second two-pass technique (made by @The Hero aswell) has been introduced which aims to emulate PS2 way of handling alpha test.

 

Both two-pass switches have their good and bad aspects, so the choice is up to the user.

Oh man that is some nice progress. I assume you didn't test the two-pass rendering yourself right? :D

I don't even remember what bugs the old one caused as I never used it. TIme to test this.

Crashes at night. No log. I used faster clock in trainer.

Vegetation seems untouched with Hero's method, but notice the wires.

You should try that scene in Doherty garage where the support beams are missing. You posted about it in the fixes thread I think.

Also look at the dry dock in the SF docks (where the NRG challenge is). The fake reflections look much better with the PS2 style code. Without NVC there is no transparency at all.

Well, no luck there

Oh, but that's because I disable twopass for indoor cutscenes. My twopass had bugs there, let me remove this check for Hero's twopass and you'll check again.

 

Hold on for a sec.

Damn, you guys are wizards!

 

Any way to bring the mobile version alpha bug fix to PC?

 

@format:c

 

Isn't that because Two-Pass is disabled for indoor cutscenes?

 

EDIT: Ninja'd

Check this, Hero's twopass allowed for cutscenes:

BTW I can't reproduce that crash second time so it remains mystery.

ONe thing is good - no more weird blue things on the roads in San Fierro.

But, I hardly see and difference between THe Hero's two-pass and nothing:

The difference between no and PS2 style dual pass rendering is not so great indeed. but look at the edges of vegetation. You'll be able to see the difference. Having transparent objects render without problems is sadly impossible.

Tested it myself and you're right they just disappear as the cutscene progresses. Looks almost comical.

That's another issue with the alpha entity list if I recall. You can increase the list by using Open Limit Adjuster or using the adjuster with P2dfx (same thing).

With NVC disabled it still happens but way less intense.

 

@TJGM

 

I do have OpenLA with AlphaEntityList = unlimited, so it can't be that.

You have to disable desktop composition (~aero). Then videos will play flawlessly (unless you are using some goddamn codec pack)

 

Hmm i guess this cutscene in Doherty's garage isn't okay?

Did you read #2503 and Silent's answer?
