    It's been extremely dark for a few weeks now.

    Does anyone know a workaround?
    Has it been reported? Can you bisect what change broke it? openarena looks fine here.

    • I can't find the bugzilla, could you give me a link? I wanted to search there first, but couldn't find it.

      At least I remember reading about it here, if my memory serves me well.

      EDIT: Other GL games are not affected, and playing with overbrightbits in oa helps things.

      • Openarena does not appear any darker on my system either (HD3450, Ubuntu 9.10, radeon libdrm & drm from a couple of weeks ago, mesa from a few days ago).

        We're not saying there's no problem, just that it's not showing up as pervasively as you might be thinking.

        • I know, and I can't find a bug report either. It could be something very strange, but I'm quite sure that I didn't mess with any game settings.

          I've found a number of things on the internet relating to openarena being dark because of issues with hw gamma on certain chipsets, but nothing relating to radeon drivers.

          I'll see if I can localise better what caused it.

          • As of 0.1.60, Heroes of Newerth requires ARB_pixel_buffer_object, which the r600 driver doesn't have.

                I haven't noticed any change recently - but then the in game gamma/brightness settings for openarena have never worked for me. I always assumed it was my sdl being old or something.

                The workaround is easy, I just do

                xgamma -gamma 1.8

                before I start the game. If you have multiple displays you may need to use xrandr instead. Using that you need to specify display and give r,g,b, also < 1.0 is brighter .

                  Hmm did the driver even work in the first place? HoN < 0.1.60

                    Yeah, it just had a ton of rendering issues.
                    It won't start now.

                      From HoN's beta forums:

                      If you set vid_checkOpenGLVersion to false in startup.cfg, it will skip the check.
                      Related to the other changes in 0.1.60:

                      I think one of them might help with the open source linux drivers too

                        Thanks, that gets it to start again.

                        But it looks like I'm still getting the same rendering issues, even after a bunch of GLSL updates in mesa yesterday.

                            • Hello everyone

                              I just tried playing FoFiX with KMS and r600 dri driver. It's quite stable and good working (50-60 fps), but when I tried to go through song list it hanged. Following message repeated itself many times in dmesg:
                              Code:
                              Dec  9 21:19:21 wielkieg kernel: [ 7142.780009] [drm:radeon_ib_get] *ERROR* radeon: IB(7:0x0000000010171000:14937)

                              Nothing could I do other than switching to VT console and issuing reboot (I like KMS ).

                              System (kubuntu lucid):
                              kernel: 2.6.32

                              X, mesa, libdrm, xf86-video-ati, ...

                              • I have the same errors, but with openarena and tremulous
                                I'm on a HD3650 (rv635) AGP, mobo has VIA K8M800
                                Using KMS on Karmic + 2.6.32 final + xorg-edgers ppa updated as of a couple of days ago.
                                Default AGP mode and speed, no change in UFS/DFS, AGP aperture set to 256M (although this was more required for UMS)
