Hi Carlo, try to change weather to winter with snowflaks. You can see really big snowflaks. Proably is any problem with shader for these snowflakes. Maybe alfa is not correct aplicated.

Thanks Icik,
I must find out where the problem was introduced, because in the first OR MG versions snow was OK. Moreover the shader hasn't changed between a working and a non-working version.

Further checks show that the problem has arisen passing from pre- to post-3.6 Monogame editions, maintaining the same OR source code.

Not many ideas on how to proceed.

Hi Carlo,

Here is a replacement patch for Precipitation.cs which has a one line change for Precipitation.cs in your OR3988 patch.

I have changed an instance of:

graphicsDevice.BlendState = BlendState.AlphaBlend;
to:
graphicsDevice.BlendState = BlendState.NonPremultiplied;

This seems to have improved the snow somewhat. At the moment, unfortunately, I should be doing "more important things" so I'm not going to have time to fully test this for unwanted side effects.

Thanks Dennis, that seems to work. I will insert it in the next OR-MG release.

So long as I don't need to compile anything I could do the test and return results on a 1 day turnaround.

Here http://www.interazio...e/OR3992_MG.zip a new OR MG release can be downloaded, corresponding to OR release 3992 plus the possibility of adding a shadow to all shapes. In this release I inserted the patch by dennisat to get correct snow flakes, plus a patch by mbm_OR that restores some graphic info in the debug HUD that was removed in OR MG releases. Thanks to both.

the overall patch file can be downloaded. MG .dll files are unchanged.

Hi Carlo,

This probably does not have too much to do with this patched version itself.

I have been experiencing some issues I cannot really figure out why. I tried changing around settings but it still happens.

First of all this patched version is quite better for me. I see really good FPS improvement. Yet I find it strange I cannot go much higher than 40 or 50 FPS... Non the less, this is good enough. My problem is that when the train is moving, it looks like it is moving at 5FPS when the actual FPS is between 40 and 50. This does happen with the non-patched / official ORTS version, but with less FPS.

You can see this on this video:

To the post I also include a screenshot of my settings and graphic data information.

Do you have any clue for which reason this might be happening?

Pedro

Yes, this jumping does me too. It may help lock the FPS or set up the vertical synchronisation on 60fps.

This may occur if the dispatcher window is open, which is update once every second. Maybe you have some background program periodically running?
