Descriptive Problem Summary:
An /image without an icon is given maptext and a loc in the world.
When this image is added to client.images, anything above this image (higher plane, or equal plane AND higher layer) will be drawn in a very strange manner.
plane_masters are not relevant to reproducing the bug.
blend_modes are not relevant to reproducing the bug.
This affects both objects on the map and in client.screen.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Make a /image object. Give it a maptext and a loc in the world.
2. Make a bunch of other objects that are above this image object. Either use a higher plane, or use the same plane but with a higher layer. These other objects must have semi-transparent pixels in their icons.
3. Add the /image object to client.images
4. Observe your game turn into something looking weird.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
First use the "createDust" verb and then use the "toggleMapText" verb.
from version 510.1323
from version 510.1325
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
In other games?
In other user accounts?
On other computers?
When does the problem NOT occur?
When an earlier version is being used, or when the maptext is the forward-most object being drawn.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Did not occur in 510.1323 and earlier
Make the maptext the forward-most object (by plane or by layer). This is not ideal for many projects.
