It's so obscure and harmless that it could go in the category of: "it's not a bug, it's a feature".

I'm writing the bug report now.

Save these little issues, however, judging from what I've seen, though, this has been a huge step forward for D2X-XL, Diedel, FYI. :D

I'm looking forward to trying this new version. Thanks Diedel!  :D

TechNor,

is the flickering walls problem still there?

Adding '-use_shaders 0' to config/d2x.ini didn't make any difference.  Sorry.

Here is a short video showing the flicker:  http://www.filedropper.com/d2x-xlflicker  (running D2X-XL ver 1.15.135)

I just (today) had the chance to try your newest version (ver. 1.15.141) ... and still flickers.

Other than the flicker, the program seems to run great.

Why didn't you put it on Youtube? Because you didn't want to embarrass me? :D

Edit:

Ok, I got it. That looks bad. Haven't seen something like that myself so far though.

I still have some testing to do.  Going to try a fresh install on a different system and if that installation doesn't flicker, I'll copy it to the flickering system and see what happens.  Hopefully, if the flicker is due to the video card being used ... I should know it then.

I would imagine it's because he doesn't have an account on Youtube. Nor any reason to need one for that matter.
