Re: Myth TFL Menu / Inside Spread Artwork

I couldn't find it in our asset archive either.

Small chance but not impossible that I overlooked it so here is a list of filenames in the archive:

This is a spambot. Look at the user name.

Re: Bugs: Formations & Alternate Preset Recall

1) I just tried this and it worked correctly for me. Are you sure you don't have custom formations in your local folder? (or if you had them in when you started a new game, they will get embedded in any savegames you made from that start) 2) I can confirm this one, looks like something about attack ...

Re: Myth II 1.8.4 Released!

Hello, Thanks for that new update. FYI, on my W10 setup, Avira just detected a threat (heuristic detection - usually these are false positives) on the updater, freshly downloaded from Project Magma, and quarantined the updater .exe. bigbro Thanks for the report. Although this is the first I hear of...

Re: Myth 2 halts at black screen

I got 21H1 installed as well as the latest drivers. Unfortunately it still doesn't reproduce on my system, so I can't easily test ideas for how to fix the problem. All I know is that not calling GetDeviceGammaRamp at all should fix the issue... but that means disabling gamma support completely (as i...

Re: Myth 2 halts at black screen

I'm upgrading my machine to 21H1 now to see if I can reproduce it locally. BTW are your Nvidia drivers all up to date? We have similar hardware so I think there could be a good chance of reproduction if we have same OS and same gfx driver. That looks like it might take a while. In the meantime here...

Re: Myth 2 halts at black screen

Interesting. The UI thread seems to be stuck inside GetDeviceGammaRamp() these are the most relevant results in google for a similar issue: https://sourceforge.net/p/dxwnd/discussion/general/thread/98e0058834/ https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/all/getdevicegammaramp-api-hangs-in-wind...

Re: Myth 2 halts at black screen

OK, so that gives me a pretty good idea when the issue happens in terms of the startup sequence, but it's still extremely mysterious to me why it happens. For the window to show "not responding" that means the UI thread is actually stuck in an infinite loop somehow, which is a previously n...

Re: Myth 2 halts at black screen

The point where your log stops is around where the game would go fullscreen if fullscreen was enabled. I think maybe it tries to go fullscreen and that doesn't work somehow which is how you end up with the screen being all black. I am curious if the game is truly "halted". Are you able to ...
