List of known bugs in 1.7.0

OGL on Windows, I mean fails if the resolution is not supported.

Fix committed. :slight_smile:




For the record, there are still two DirectX on-exit crashes I couldn’t find the cause of, threads:

Just wanted to leave this here in case I forget, I’ll try to get a more concrete summary of both and dig a little more when I get around to it.

dunno if this is the proper place to post but I just downloaded the sdk for windows and trying the samples found this error from the beginning:

C:\Panda3D-1.7.0\samples\Motion-Trails>python.exe -E

Traceback (most recent call last):

corretta. Una nuova installazione dell'applicazione potrebbe risolvere il problema.

the last italian part of the error is talking about “impossible to start the application for incorrect configuration” and to “install again the application”. I installed it again, just in case, but with no luck.

Sounds like our old side-by-side assemblies issue again. Is that still an issue in the 1.7.0 build?

Not supposed to be. Hm… can you run pview.exe? And interrogate.exe?

I did a second check and installed the sdk in my friend’s XP machine and all it’s ok - very likely my PC’s XP partition is screwed and it’s time to reinstall it. sorry for the false alarm

Can you try running pview.exe and interrogate.exe on the faulty computer? Do they fail?

now that XP partition it is on the way to a new life but I tried what you asked before and I recall interrogate.exe run (even if complaining for a parameter missing) and pview started but hung without even showing its window.

Since this is the final 2.6 release, you might consider wrapping this python version into the next release of 1.7.x.

OK, I’ll consider it.

The cartoon shader sample in 1.7:

Probably something wrong with the egg file?
I use cartoon inking/shading in my project and it works fine.

I think also this one:

This one too, pointed out by ynjh_jo … highlight=

DirectD() not in makepanda.

And this one (?):

the OpenAL soft 1.8 is broken in my ways. Updating to 1.12 should fix many of the openAl problems.

I couldn’t figure out the issues with OpenCVTexture on Linux, so instead of fixing it I added Video4Linux2 support to WebcamVideo. Now we have a unified interface for getting webcam output that works consistently on Windows and Linux.

I think we can deprecate OpenCVTexture now. I don’t think it’s being used anymore and it’s a pain to maintain.

The fireflies example is broken in windows 7 64-bit, but works on ubuntu 10 64-bit:

[Fireflies sample broken? [1.7.0])

I too was not able to run PStats, then I found this thread. So I deem this to be a known bug. PStats does not work in environments that use comma and period for numbers different from English (e.g. German).
