[SOLVED] The intro just shows a black rectangle in the middle of the screen

I assume it's supposed to be an animated logo texture?

Yeah, it is. It works fine for me, but it might be that the texture size exceeds the maximum dimensions for your graphics card. I'll have to see about replacing it with a video when I can.

Is there a per texture dimension limit? I thought it was only a matter of available GPU memory, which seems to be sufficient.

Everything else displays properly.

Are you sure that the image was properly packed?

Maybe it's pulling the image in from your filesystem, rather than the jar.

It works on other systems, like mine, for example

Ok, that would confirm that it's a problem on my end.

Just out of curiosity, what are the dimensions of the texture?

> Is there a per texture dimension limit?

There is, I believe. The limit changes depending on the hardware, but it does exist. The intro image itself is very large (over 10000 pixels high) because it's just an ordinary sprite animation.

EDIT: The image is 128x13056. Just never got around to doing anything about it, haha - guess this is as good a time as any!

OK, this update should resolve this - the "intro" cinematic isn't saved into a single image strip anymore, but the individual frames are loaded sequentially (so each image is 128x128 now).

Yep, this does it.
