Chess Board Scrambled - Rendering Problem

Post by JerryHobby »

I've just purchased and installed COW for Windows. The chess board does not display properly. I've captured the problem in a short video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MC3Id-RY9CQ

As far as I can tell all my drivers are up to date. But obviously something is wrong.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jerry

I found a work-around. I ran COW using the "high performance" graphics processor. I then edited the defaults for COW so it uses that always. Problem solved for my needs.

I would still like to know what needs updating or if something needs to be fixed somewhere.

Hey Jerry,

I have a short list of people how have had this issue. I think you make number six.

I've yet to come across drivers that won't work so I've been stymied trying to pin this bug down. The users who have the problem say it goes away as soon as the diagram is drawn again after, say, a move is made. From that I have an idea for a program update. I'll keep you updated.

I have uploaded build 71 of COW Express with the adjustment that I'm hoping works around this issue. Let me know if it works or not.

Build 75 of COW Express appears to have fixed the scrambled diagram problem for everyone who reported it.

I'll have an update for the Professional version very soon.
