    What happened to my SF graphics...??

    Post by Atlantis_Risen on Mon Feb 20, 2017 12:59 am

    Hi all.  Something terrible has happened to my SF graphics.  Sad  On my last PC (which is quite a bit weaker than my new laptop) my graphics looked like this:





    With my current install, the game looks like this, everything's just one flat color:



    I must have done something terribly wrong.  This is my JSGME install:



    My PC specs are:

    MSI 15.6" GL62 6QF-1445
    Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz)
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
    12 GB Memory
    128 GB SSD
    1 TB HDD
    Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

    What did I do wrong?

    Hi !

    I think you have to select the option:

    "no video mode restrictions" In the game settings. Please, check it !

    I guess this is issue of the videocard driver.
    Try this FAQ N16
    1. Open with Notepad(or Notepad++) file Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\data\k42\loc_rus\config\config.engcfg
    2. Find entry
    Code:
    formats()
    {
    user, 0, 2;
    3. Replace value "0" with value "-1" for the parameters:
    tbump, -1, 2;
    bump, -1, 2;
    trans, -1, 2;
    techn, -1, 2;
    4. Save
    Tick file option "read only".

    I had actually set these like this already, because of another thread on blurry interior graphics problem, no effect on my problem thou.

    Ok Atlantis you need to post more info.


    1)What model is your laptop and what are the specs?

    2) Post your config file

    Your problem is either from the textures folder. Something went wrong when you installed Steel; Fury on your (new?) laptop. You could simply disenable and re-enable all the mods in the mods folder and see what happens. Or it`s in the config folder that there were changes to your textures and or the quality settings. Check also your in games video settings to see if some settings have changed compared to what you had on your previous pc. One last thing to check is your Nvidia Control Panel or AMD Radeon Settings software ( depending on what you have)and see what kind of global and graphic settings you have for SF. Remember that the game is old and does not recognize the modern video architecture of Nvidia and ATI Radeon gpus and will automatically default your available video memory to 128 mbs and thus adjust your graphic settings accordingly. You may have to set everything manually to counterbalance that both in the config file andéor the Nvidia control panel or AMD equivalent.
