visual problems
Suddenly, after many hours of playtime, I got strange visual errors

When i play, i suddenly have the new graphics from steam, but at the same time, on top of it, i get the classic ascii graphics. it is rather unnerving, and almost unplayable.

Any ideas?

Does this happen for a specific saved game or all of the time?

What happens if you switch from ASCII to Tiles with F10?

When i toggle f10, it changes to ascii a normal, but is still broken when i toggle back.

When i load my save, it's normal, until i got to world map, then it breaks. If i reload, it is broken again, until i reboot the system. When I create a new character, it is broken from the get go.

You could try to delete the file "config-adom.noe" from the ADOM Steam directory ("Documents\ADOM\adom_steam").

This problem happens intermittently when leaving a dungeon and entering the world map. I've also seen it happen on entrance to the fungal caves. The only workaround I know about is to save and completely close the game; merely saving and reloading the save will cause the problem to persist.

Hm, the problem you are referring to was fixed in 3.1.0 (see issue 5215).

This is why I think there must be a different cause.

Actually, the things I've described have occurred in 3.1.0 on Grond's stream (note that I didn't mention the volcano... didn't see that on stream, so not sure if leaving that area is fixed).

@mtf: is there a video of the stream? Did you notice at which point it happened?

I could verify the problem with the volcano and the world map (the one from issue 5215). The volcano messages were new and printed "at the wrong time" during the transition from one map to another. I've never seen it happen for other map transitions. I just tried to reproduce it with the fungal caves, but no luck so far.

Tiles working on FC: 1 -
Tiles broken 4 minutes later on FC: 3 -

EDIT: Attached a save that's on the down stairs in FC: 2. After descending to FC: 3, the problem shows up after wandering around a bit.

Ok, I see... very strange. So it just randomly switched to the tiles/ASCII display or did you switch to tiles on purpose?

The issue I fixed was related to messages during map transitions, but this is no transition. I will try to reproduce it with the saved game, thanks!

Both times I intentionally switched to tiles to check herb bushes.

We have managed to reproduce and fix this -- this was actually a combination of two bugs:
(1) "animated water off" option not working correctly since old non-animated water tiles have been removed (we could not reproduce it with "animated water on");
(2) because a bug in the NotEye script, it affected not only the responsible water tiles, but also all the tiles rendered afterwards.
