Oasis of Nejeb - Tablet Glitch

Postby DracVamplord » Mon Oct 05, 2015 4:43 am

Hi Ladies and gentleman,

I am new to the community and I would like to report a problem with one of the levels at BOD in Oasis of Nejeb.

As you all know, there is a tablet in the Oasis of Nejeb. To receive the tablet, there is a platform that you need to stand on and a bow and arrow is also there by a dead skeleton. When I stand on that platform, there is a light from the sky on that platform that is so blinding that you can't see the four stones that you would need to hit. Do you guys know if this is a wellknown glitch with BOD, or maybe my graphics card needs to be configured in a way. I enabled Vertical Sync as suggested in some of the posts but I still have the same problem. I would appreciate an advice with regards to this matter.

Thank you

Try switching between OpenGL/Direct3D render modes.

Thanks Haraldzz, I did change to d3d and it seems that it fixes the lightning and the fog, but then the menu options go black. The only way I know how to fix the menu is through OpenGL but then the fog problem still persists if I switch. Is there a fix for the menu problem to work with D3D so I wont have to switch to OpenGL?

Thanks in advance

Ah, this is part of the (i think) only error with the rOpenGL raster. makes fog thicker than oil. sure, you can play the game, but some maps have deathtraps around every corner.

To fix this, you need 3 things:
The latest patch.
A thirdparty software that allows you to load mods called "BOD Loader".
And finally the FogFix Mod.

BOD Loader:

US-Patch:

(EDIT)
Think we kinda need a sticky post with updated links to all needed downloads, feels like i have to scavenge the internet every time someone needs them.

Download my version rOpenGL
http://sgi.bigtruck-canada.ca/patches/rOpenGL.zip
Cancel OpenGL Fog fix Mod and use my rOpenGL.dll

See my post
http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtop ... 520#p29520

My opinion is: in the standard library rOpenGL there is an error, I corrected it.
Why not use my version of rOpenGL ?
My version differs from standard version 4 bytes at the address 1E761.
I replaced the address 1E761 real number in single precision. 0.02. I ordered there 0,004. That is, the density of the fog made 5 times less.
There is a curvature of our space. All material bodies - geometrical bodies.
