Hi everyone,
I was a big fan of OMF 2097 in DOS years way back when and was excited to see last night there was a remake. So I downloaded it.

After I got it installed and running I couldn't see anything while in the game. There seems to be a problem with the Glow effect that is defaultly enabled. Whenever I go to start a game with the glow effect enabled the whole screen is white minus the menus. If I disable it the game runs fine.

Is this fixed in the retail version, or does it do the same thing there?

I noticed that some Radeon users with old Catalysts has a similar issue, but it was flashing.

I just updated the Nvidia Drivers today with the latest November 9th, 2004 drivers, and still it didn't fix the glow issue.

Here are my specs
Athlon 64 3200+ 1MB Cache
BFG Geforce 6800 GT 256 DDR3
1024 MB DDR3200 Ram
Windows XP PRO SP2
DirectX 9.0c

Has anyone else had this problem?
If so, is there a way to fix it?

Just to make sure, you patched your game to build 2172?

Thanks for the quick replies...

1. I'm not by my computer now, but I believe it's the latest version as it looks for updates every time it starts up.

2. It's the demo version that I have, but I don't want to buy the full version if it's going to have the same problem

hrum... indeed it did work... however I just loaded up the game again to test it with the glow and it indeed does not work properly. Screen is all white just like the top poster reported, only happens with glow.

I actually have a 6800ultra OC. nVidia 66.93 drivers. DX 9.0c


wierd..... because I know I definitly did have glow on and working before. I'll bet nVidia changed something with the 66.xx series drivers that changes the way the glow effect works.

I get this too with my new video card now, currently using the 71.84 zer0point drivers.

I think I'm doomed to have problems with glow, after it got fixed on my 9800 pro, it's now broken again with my new card.

I'm having the identical problem: the screen is almost all white when I have the glow turned on. When I turn it off, it's fine.

I have a nvidia 6600 GT (newest drivers), Windows XP (SP2), and DirectX 9.0c.

Honestly ? i think some bad code... I think there was a work around to solve problems with glow on radeon cards but it causes errors on the 6800 line of cards. I could of course be completely off, if so someone will probably correct me.

well I have the 6600 GT, so I don't think this is just stamped on the 6800. hopefully the omf team will bring out a patch that deals with the glow issue, what other nvidia cards are having the prob? is it just the nvidia geforece 6 cards, I'm usin PCIE, but I dunno if that'd have anything to do with this.

Nah, I have an AGP version of the 6600GT, and it does the same thing. If I remember correctly, the last few driver releases for the Radeon 9800 Pro caused the same problem as well, but it's been a long time since I last tried it on that card.

It was fixed a while ago for Radeon cards.
