Perfect Dark texture flicker issue
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:48:54 AM »
Perfect Dark (U) V1. 1

Textures flicker depending on your proximity to certain areas.

This is a minor example. Some levels have entire areas of this.

Here is the savestate. Just walk up to the door straight ahead. Then back up, etc.

Ok, I think I know what's going on. I recently added CRC optimizations to GLideN64. That's probably what is causing it. I'll revert those soon, they provide some speedup, but not worth the texture issues it causes.

If you want me to test out a build first to make sure, that way you're not reverting for nothing, I can do that.

For me Perfect Dark became unplayable on this latest release... The speed dropped 90% or maybe mora....

GLideN64 is not the same as Glide64. Hmmm... nothing with the latest update should had affected Glide64.

There was a new Google Play build added. Was that supposed to fix the issue? If so, it didn't.

Yeah, I did revert some changes to GLudeN64 that were causing issues. Sounds like yours is a different problem. I'll check your save state.

OK, now I see, the problem is with Glide64 not GLideN64-GLES.

Can you try using GLideN64-GLES and see if there issue goes away?

I'm going to try to adjust the Glide64 settings for that game. Maybe there is a setting that will fix that.

I just uploaded a new version. I just modified a configuration parameter for Glide64 for that game and it seems to fix it. I'm hoping in doesn't break anything else with that game though.
