I have decided to make a list of all the known issues you fellow IO followers are having with your games. I will try and keep this as up to date as possible and help people where I can. So please do check this thread every time you browse this forum for updates on the issues.
All current problem threads will be marked with an exclamation mark icon when they have been read and added to this thread.
- The game freezes!
There are people claiming that the game freezes on the 'splash screen' and are then unable to do anything other than terminate the process to restore functionality to their PC.
Status / Solution: This is not the splash screen, it's the menu! Set the resolution of the game to the correct resolution for your monitor and you will be able to see the menu a lot more clearly.
- The game crashes when loading Melee or MultiMelee
If you do not set a name in the garage before launching a game, the game crashes. This is for the Windows release only.
Status / Solution: Set a name in the garage before launching a game!
- I don't have a joystick!
Reading the console messages, it becomes apparent that there is almost always an error loading the plugin for a joystick. This is simply because you don't have a joystick. Don't worry.
Status / Solution: Ignore it. Or plug in a joystick!
- CPU at 100%
People using Intel Core 2 Duo processors are reporting their CPU to be at 100% usage all the time whilst playing IO.
Status / Solution: The game will try and use as much CPU as possible to maximise the FPS potential. This does not affect system performance or any other tasks running in the background.
- Alt + Left Key = text box but not able to insert any text
When pressing Alt + Left Key to enter text, users have reported to be unable to type anything in the box initially. Instead, 'pressing the title-bar' first to allow for text entry.
Status / Solution: cfraz89 thinks this may be a problem on his part but is unsure. More on this as it develops.
- Glibc Compatibility
'I couldn't run game because it's statically linked against glibc 2.4. I my distibution I have only two variants 2.3 and 2.5.' A dynamic version decreases the chances of the game running even more.
Status / Solution: Builds have now been created for both glibc 2.4 and 2.5. Get them from the download thread.
- Windows 98
Unfortunately, the 3D engine now used for IO does not have support for Windows 98. Anyone running Windows 98 may be a little bit peeved to read this.
Status / Solution: Upgrade your version of Windows.
- Linux Library: libpython2.4.so.1.0
TerraRoot attempted to use a 32bit library on a 64bit machine. Everyone makes mistakes, and it's always the simple things we forget. No harm done though.
Status / Solution: Obtain a 64bit version?
- Vehicle Cornering Issue
Some people are reporting cornering a vehicle to be more 'power sliding' than anything. Especially when turning left and then immediately right straight after.
Status / Solution: We're working on redoing the car physics.
