    It can be the bug found in the r6 version and earlier. Try
    the new version, based from the CVS (1.98r7). It might fix
    the problem.

    I have an Pentium 4 2.53 GHz, 512 MB DDR, Vide Card ATI 9200
    Atlantis 128 MB

    I already have the latest version, there is some log
    somewhere to check what's happening?

    Thank you again for the help.

    I've placed a version (r7) this morning. Did you tried it ?

    So you need to download the source code with CVS, recompile
    with _DEBUG and see by yourself.

    There is a log mode when using that mode. Also in debug, it
    runs in a window, so it's easier to track down.

    can you provide me a compiled binary with debug flag? i dont
    have visual studio with me and i think i wont be able to
    compile it

    Yes, I can do that, but this will take me some time (there
    is many debug DLLs to add + I need to add an integrated
    debugger in it).

    My guess it's a video card related (not OS related because
    it even works with WinXP 64bit).

    According the tests we've done, the game is NOT crashing,
    simply, the OpenGL page flipping is failing on your video
    card, so you can't set what's going one I think the reasons
    could be :

    - Incorrect refresh rate ?
    - Unsupported screen resolution ?
    - Desktop not set to 32bit : It's a limitation of OpenGL on
    Windows ?
    - You can edit the file
    C:\Documents and Settings\..\My Documents\No Gravity
    Savegames\nogravity.ini

    Look at ResolutionX and ResolutionY and set the value to the
    same resolution than your desktop.

    Setting resolution to 1280x1024 I got it past the logo, I
    created a pilot but when loading training mission it crashed
    (this time it really crashed) complaining about a runtime
    error in v3xrend.c line 383

    Hope this help. Now the I got past the logo I'm more eager
    to play it, seems wonderful, please help me. I'll try it on
    other computers too if this could help.

    The assert at line 383 is OK - should be removed, a leftover
    of the BeOS version - I didn't tried in _DEBUG with OpenGL
    for a long time.

    Now, try the 'official' version (r7). and set the parameters
    to 1280x1024 in the .ini file.

    So apparently, your screen is unable to display at 640x480.
    Can you send me the latest debug.txt (based from the last
    version). It has information about the pixel format and the
    screen resolution /refresh rate in it ?

    I will post an update w32_gl.cpp, with some major rewrite
    (better initialization handling). I think this might help.

    Else, the actuall version of the game is reported to work
    fine on most machine (all nVidia video cards and high end
    ATI (9600+)).

    I wasn't able to reply by email, anyway the latest version
    worked correctly with both resolutions. Thx for the help.
