The MG1 is odd graphics, streaks going down the screen. Also, for some reason, no sound is produced by this emulator.
That is not good. What happens if you try
startBristol -debug 5
The first lines of the output are link library information - you should check the paths are correct. There was an issue with the 0.40 version that was packaged for Ubuntu as it used alternative locations which may cause old libraries to be linked against the new bristol releases. That breaks a lot of things. This can also happen if you try and install multiple versions. The fix for the stray 0.40 was to uninstall it from Synaptic.
Kind regards nick
Andrew, is this still an issue? The issue is probably due to memory corruption however I fixed a pile of them in 0.50 but you would get similar results if the libraries were mixed up from different releases.
I can get streaks to run across the image if I do resizing on the window, something I am now looking into. The sound does not disappear however if this streaking is cause by memory corruption then other side effects could be happening too.
Fixed about 3 bugs in the transparenc layer code, the main one was a failed bounds check on some bitmap manipulations that could cause memory corruption. There were two addtional issues, actually the same one but replicated in the MG1 and RhodesBass frontend where they would reconfigure on resizing. Now that could lead to loss of sound (especially with the corruption) however the loss of sound was not evident here, only the damaged graphics.
This will go into the next 0.50 and 0.60 stream.
Ahhh! I'm running a tiling window manager which automatically resizes the windows to fit each other, which would explain the graphical glitches!
A tiling window manager. Which one? What kind of images do you get, I had to put in a fix for somebody here as he was having hassles with bristol going through endless 'brightonWorldChanged()' as the GUI fought with the window manager over the size. Bristol wants to maintain aspect ratio, the window manager didn't.
Have you tried it with -autozoom? I have another issue with somebody on 64 bit linux and getting endless zoom in/out, still looking into it.
Going to put this on pending, will be delivered in 0.60.3.
This specific issue is resolved. Closing
