TMW freezes KDE 3 desktop

Post by fargris » Tue Jan 06, 2009 9:23 am

This is my setup: AMD64 HW, running Debian, which I have upgraded to "testing". Before the upgrade, the tmw client worked fine; now it seems to freeze my desktop. It runs for a short while, I can log on if I do it immediately, then soon after I start moving about, everything freezes. I have tried this with the client provided through Debians servers as well as compiling my own.

I don't expect anyone to simply say "This is what's wrong" - but perhaps somebody could point me in some direction? How do I debug this thing? Are there command line option to turn tracing on etc?

Can you attach your log (~/.tmw/tmw.log)?

One thing I keep seeing that might be the problem, it can't handle many of our images. They're too big (dimension wise). It's cropping them, which would be a problem.

The strange thing is, it wasn't a problem before I upgraded my OS; and I see the map and other players OK. One thing is odd though - for a while before I upgraded the OS, I found the monsters often turned into a "rainbow" when they got killed - just a short, horizontal bar of different colours.

Sounds like the same problem. Are you running the game in OpenGL mode? If so, try turning it off.

Turning opengl off seems to have repaired it, but I had to rebuild - I didn't even get as far as seeing the log on dialog before it killed the entire desktop enough that I had to reboot. Not even logging on over the net and killing tmw, X and the other things freed up the display.

You didn't need to rebuild, there is a config option for it.
