Linux mint: Everything turns purple when fire
I got a odd bug I wish some help getting around. Computer specs at the bottom of the post.
When I play normally, the game runs fine, but the moment the game starts to render anything fire, I get massive framedrops. After some time, less than a minute, some objects turns partially purple (losing their textures), shortly after, everything but the terrain turns purple. Here is a screenshot:
At this point the framerate is restored, and everything runs smoothly, including the fire. BUT, almost everything is purple, and the game is left practically unplayable until the fire is gone. I have tried to reduce the graphics settings, but to no help.
When this has first happened, the game stays this way. To restore the textures, I have to restart the game.
Here are my specs:
Linux Mint 18, on Linux kernel 4.10.0-33
16 GB of RAM
Intel Core i7-6700K, 4.00GHz x 4
NVIDIA GK104, GeForce GTX 680
Looked at the referenced issue 2222, I can confirm the screenshots of that issue are similar to what I experienced.
Looking forward to seeing it fixed.
I see turning off "Global Illumination" was suggested in that thread.
Should I follow that advice until you launch the fix?
I disabled all settings and pushed everything graphic related to lowest setting. Still had the problem. Just have to tab out and grab a coffee when night arrives ;) ( http://ecoforum.strangeloopgames.com/topic/2884/ubuntu-16-04-and-geforce-gtx-1060/3 )
