Exclamation textures not loading in counter-strike


Hi

I am running counter-strike under winex cvs source. but none of the textures seem to load correctly. Is there any special config i should be running? I am running a Geforce 4 MX440 with the latest nvidia drivers off the nvidia website.

Thanks in advance

I am having the same problems too. I am using mandrake 9.1 and winex. I have a p4 1.9 GHz with intel d850mv mobo and a geforce 4 5600 fx 256MB graphics card. I have character model textures, but I don't have map textures. It is like the walls are white or greyish. Everything else works flawless like the sound and the frames per second. I don't know whats wrong.

I compiled winex using a script from http://ting.homeunix.org/ which uses pthreads for compiling. If anybody can help us I would sure appreciate it.

Hi!!!

Have you guys changed the video options in Counter-Strike >> Config Menu?. The most compatible to use should be OpenGL, which is Linux standard. Perhaps software rendering or DirectX would give those problems with textures... Just a wild guess here...

in the half-life config insert a line:
gl_ztrick 0
it is probably already in the config as:
gl_ztrick 1
this should fix your problem, and if it doesn't then there is really nothing else you can do..people frequently have problems using the cvs version of winex, and one thing i can leave you with is that cs runs flawlessly on the regular version of wine, meaning winex is not needed to run cs.

Ok, here is how I got it to work. I had to uninstall the nvidia driver. Then I reinstalled it using this command
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run --opengl-headers
What this is doing is placing
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/include/GL/gl.h
and
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/include/GL/glx.h
into
/usr/include/GL/

Then recompile winex

make sure you try the gl_ztrick instead of going through that again...gl_ztrick is supposed to work, and if all else fails then you should try what murderer says..

DrOzz, I have been trying to sort out my problem with no texturing in CS.

I have looked for gl_ztrick but the ones I have changed to 0 have not done anything. Where should the half life config file be? I grepped the half-life folder, and found a number of matches, but i dont' seem to be able to sort out the problem.

Which file should I alter?

cheers

I have an integrated GeForce2 32mb graphics.

I don't really want to recompile winex. Are you sure that it will work? If your positive, then I will try it.

ciao

I think that is your problem, especially since you are using nvidia. It isn't hard to recompile winex anyway. It just takes a while, but its worth it when you finally see your textures. I had the same problem before. I uninstalled the nvidia gfx drivers, and reinstalled like I showed above. Then recompiled wine and w inex. Now I can play counter-strike through either wine or winex and get textures.
