GLFireFX bug

    Hi! I am using GLScene since 2005 with Delphi 7 and I never add any problem with fire manager before, but now with the new version I can't use it anymore correctly.

    It seems that the GLFireFx is working fine alone, but if I had a GLEarthSkydome or a GLLensFlare to the scene, the GLFireFx isn't working anymore. Nothing is rendered when using all  these components together… Sometimes when I put the component in a different order I can see the fire works but the rendering colors aren't right, like a transparency problem… can you help me with that bug?

    I have an ATI HD5870 and I don't think my graphic card is a problem, I tested that bug on other computers and it seems the same problem is happening everywhere. If you need any more informations don't hesitate to contact me directly on my mailbox : r o u l i o a _at_ h o t m a i l . c o m

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english speaking (or writing) :-)

    Yes thank you, it seems to be a driver problem right, I switched for some old ATI drivers and now its working fine… thats very strange indeed!

    ATI is still developping bad drivers year after year…
