Problem with Monument.oxp

Post by aegidian » Fri Oct 14, 2005 1:10 pm

Oolite crashes while trying to load the texture 'MonumentTexture.png'.

This is because it has an odd resolution (70.993 dpi) and the current texture loading routines aren't handling this well. I'll investigate why...

In the meantime a workaround if you're using this expansion pack is to replace monument.oxp/Textures/MonumentTexture.png with this one.
