so i guess i'm stuck with this purple nvidia bug issue , cause i'm not going back ! other games works perfect as well fsx ! so yeah i'll just waited for next driver release hopefully it will fix ! um maybe anybody here who works on this engine who programs it could code a manual fix maybe ? isn't it time already for a new version of this game/engine ? i mean c'mon we've been on this current release since last year something can't remember exact date but surely long enough ! not saying this to piss anyone off but to just give hint instead ! otherwise good year to everyone and much goodluck in everything in your lifes people ! never mind me much i'm just a nice guy who thinks positively all the time ! peace.

Maybe you can find the offending DLL file and just hotwire it into the Outerra directory to resolve the issue? this is commonly done with AMD drivers that have issues.

We will have a detection and a workaround in the next build. The workaround isn't nice as it basically throws away mipmaps on the problematic textures, resulting in trees and terrain having some noise, but it's better than the purple mess.

Nvidia acknowledged the problem and they are working on a fix.

Seems AMD and Nvidia are forever breaking stuff in OpenGL, really they should have a few games on their test bed to test out opengl before releasing a driver!  Just seems they completely ignore OpenGL testing when it comes to driver release.

Maybe they hope opengl will go away. Like glide! 😁

I'm no good with computers. I have the AMD Radeon HD 6670 graphics card and latest drivers installed. Outerra crashes upon starting and I get a message saying that graphic drivers crashed and reset. Is my card too weak?

It's not particularly fast, but that's no reason for crashing. The crash is likely because of a graphics driver issue, and it's usually necessary to reinstall the drivers cleanly.

You  sir ! Fireinthehole pretty much answered your self with the question there ! Driver issue ! Me my self I'm wondering is any works at all is being carried over the engine it's self ? Is anyone still working on it is the project active at all ? Because I start outerra everyday and have it run on its own even with purple stuff on nvidia color issue ! But I see no changes even in the charges of the earth it's self at all ! I really really hope that we could get at least for now a workaround or a fix of some sort of with this nvidia bug because I really don't want to go back that old driver anymore because other games such as FSX perform way better with now latest driver ! I'm only hoping that with each new driver at least next one will fix this issue here but who knows ! Otherwise good luck to everyone who's working on this amazing project I really believe in its future of vast capabilities !

Fascinating. (cocks one eyebrow) Perhaps Vulkan is the 'logical' alternative.  =D

It usually took 3-6 months or more for AMD fixes to appear in release builds, and it's not that different for Nvidia. It has to go through several stages of testing; a dev build contains lots of changes and it cannot be simply released, potentially breaking everything.

Also, why do you think Vulkan is going to help here? It has tons of bugs currently, and in OT we were always hitting special corners - these will be in Vulkan drivers for a long time yet.

Does this mean, we have to live in a purple world for the next few months (for the ones in the green camp).
No real fix for the next release of OT? Only a workaround?
