crashes instant if changed to 2560x1440 in full screen mode

Post by LAZA » January 2nd, 2016, 8:50 pm

I got this problem with th actual version 1.12.5:

- starting BfW
- opt into the settings
- change full screen
--> works
- change to the optimal resolution of the screen 2560 x 1440
--> game crashes instant

If i change the resolution not in full screen mode it works but got the bars.
Other resolutions work as well (tested some).

Starting in the Terminal i got this:

Code: Select all

Trying ig again with changing to a working resolution before:

I asked about a year ago why I can't run bfw in 1920x1080 and never even got a reply: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=41576

So, my advice would be to just take what works.

If you aspire for more: good luck!
I have a cunning plan.

Thats hard, cause with my (now) old monitor (which i passed to my wife) it was possible to play in 1920x1200.
For years i had Ubuntu or Xubuntu - no problems ever!

But this might be cause of the 16:10 format and now 16:9....

1.13 is moving from SDL 1.2 to SDL 2, so it's possible that will fix the resolution issue.

So there is no other solution than playing in a smaller resolution which means in windowed mode?

I'm playing in 1280x720, but it's still full-screen.

I really don't know. I've heard things here and there about how SDL 2 should have better support of various resolutions, but personally I rarely do anything in fullscreen mode since I like to multitask.

I know that Wesnoth can definitely run in 2560x1440 mode, because that's what I'm using. It works windowed and fullscreen. I don't think that BfW is causing your problem. This looks more like a driver problem to me.

So would you please help me to sort this out?
I'm new to Manjaro and satisfied so far...

What i can give you in forehand is some infos about my system:

Operating system, including its version.
Manjaro 15.12 with Xfce Desktop
Version of Wesnoth, including the configured language.
1.12.5 (1ce2ee8-Modified), installed via Pamac
A step-by-step walkthrough of how to reproduce the problem.
s. first posting (i hope it is satisfying enough)


Maybe the "Modified" in the version number explains this - so it is a Manjaro problem...?!?

Oh, sorry! I must have sounded really knowledgeable. You may be disappointed.

This is what I can tell you: I have an AMD card too, but I am using the Mesa driver instead of the Catalyst driver. (Mesa is slower for 3D rendering, but it's fast enough for what I do.) I'm using KDE/Plasma on openSUSE, but I doubt that changing your distro would help. I did compile Wesnoth myself though, and that's probably worth a try.

That's all I know. You could try compiling BfW, switching to Mesa, or contacting AMD for more help. Or, maybe someone smarter than me will show up here with a better idea.

Let us know what happens.

To track the problem further, it may be necessary to install (and compile first) a debug version, then follow the instructions under Segfault in the wiki about providing a backtrace.

You could also try the Manjaro Linux Forum topic on BfW. to get distro-specific help.
