ETQW won't run, image not found
Just thought I'd spread the love...
If you get these errors while trying to load Enemy Territory Quake Wars (ETQW), on a Linux box (most claim to have Intel HD graphics cards)
ERROR: idMegaTextureLevel::EmptyLevelImage : generated image has an incorrect internal format (0x8050 expected 0x83f0)
It also throws a couple of warnings about the graphics system, the first ones are
WARNING: Couldn't load image: guis/assets/mainmenu/scanlines
WARNING: Failed to load image program: 'guis/assets/mainmenu/scanlines'
WARNING: idDeclLocal::ParseLocal Failed to Parse decl 'splashscreen' in file 'materials/gfx.mtr' line 0
and a load of Couldn't load image: .[..] warnings.
You most likely need to do this:
== Install driconf, a graphics configuration tool ==
sudo apt-get install driconf
== run it and set texture compression to yes ==
Image Quality Tab
Set "Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available" to "Yes"
== set the game to not use compression ==
== restart the game if you did it from the console ==
And that made it work on my system.
Worked great on mine, but caused a few weird glitches. Still very playable.
