I have a error with my game, regarding terrain rendering. I just bought the game, and i have this weird rendering bug, where the terrain appears completely black. Please send me something to fix it, it might become annoying!

Also, the game is Ashore. Just mentioning it if it goes somewhere else

Hi, regarding the terrain issue

its not really a bug, you can read more about it here: https://itch.io/t/121858/demo-coming-soon-black-terrain-issue

Few players reported to me that by installing / updating DirectX & updating their video cards fixed the issue for them.

However, if you'd like a refund for the time being its not a problem please send me a request via the following link (please mention the email you used to get the game here on itch.io):

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Thank you.

Thank you for the reply. I't means a lot, know that i know the issue. Since i have Unity, and have worked some time in it myself (specificaly Unity 5.6.1f1), i could possibly try and tweak the shader. If the game is written in C#, that it's a plus to me. It would be nice to have the project files sent over, and i'll see what i can do. If it's too much, let me know, I am usually a little bit tiring for people. If no, i completely understand. Thanks for the support anyway!

Also, updating the  video card wasn't very clear to me. Was it meaning to replace the whole graphic card or just updating the drivers? Also, Happy New Year!

If your video video cards is above the minimum required (mentioned in the game page)updating video card's driver & Direct x.

(According to few players who had the same issue), I have personally tested it with old/some what low specs to make sure I don't mislead anyone with the minimum.

Apologies again!

Happy new year!!

Thanks for the reply, again. I have read it and followed the instructions mentioned here. The issue stays. It seems the problem is the fact that the latest Direct X driver is optimised for one specific game (I'm not exactly whure wich one). But, even if the whole game goes black i will still play it. The game is awesome. It has a lot of features, despite the alpha stage (and the game also does not have zombies, which i appreciate). There is one question, maybe reinstalling the game might work. Since when the drivers are updated, the games tend not to sense it sometimes, and it requers a reinstallation of the product. My biggest concern is wether clicking the uninstall button will remove the install option, which i'll need for reinstalling the game and seeing if that might work. I also, dont want to be an a-hole searching refunds for just 3 dollars. It isnt a problem, i can buy it again. The game is awesome, i am far from giving up on it. Happy new year!!

Developer

Anytime, please do send a request you can buy other games here!

Its your right to ask, the game will still be in your account, once you're able to play it without the issue feel free to buy it again but until then its 100% fine with me!

Cheers!!

As of now, nothing has improved. I ahve tried reinstalling, manually reinstalling, but everything seems to fail. Still, the game is awesome, and I'll hope for the best. Ill make shure to explode the Nvidia forums with requests to make optimisations for this awesome game. Happy New Year!

Developer
