View Full Version : Graphic blackout or distortion

03-12-2002, 11:24 AM

I am using a 256 color (100 color) logo graphic in each of my 20 or so scenes.
I have created a palette of all the colors used in the demo and added it to the resources of the demo.
When the first scene comes up the graphic in question is distorted (trashed). However when I move to the next scene the same graphic resource looks fine.
Is this because the demo has not loaded my color palette until after the first scene is loaded?

I am running DS 7.01 on Win98 PIII 550.

The demo is set to allow palettized colors. Each scene is set to 'Derive palette from 'Pal' file. This Pal file was created in Paint Shop Pro, not MS Paint. This palette is 114 colors.

This graphic problem will show itself 9 out of 10 times when launching the demo. Sometimes (rarely) the other scenes will also display the distorted graphic.

In the scene where the logo is becoming distorted, do you have any video files being launched?

Do you have any other applications open when launching the demo?

Would it be possible to send the .dbd file so I can test this issue further and see what is happening?

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have attached a zip of the dbd file here.
