Guardians Graphics Glitch
« on: December 22, 2010, 12:57:51 AM »
Some of the guardians in the game do not display as ship art but instead display as big colored squares.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

What version are you running?

This happens when the .png file for the guardian is simply missing from the directory, so it uses the default texture.

The current version is 4.053, you may want to try updating to that.  If you still get the boxes it may be due to a problem in an earlier update; there's a couple ways of handling that if so (either reinstall or just grab the missing textures from somewhere, etc).

I think that downloading 4.053 may have fixed the problem.

For what it's worth, I found the same problem with the Steam demo version, and then 4.021 (with both expansions) once I purchased them through Steam. The two problem images I've seen are the Raider Guardian and the Laser Guardian.

Manually (via AI War rather than Steam) updating to 4.054 fixed it.

The Steam version of 4.021 seems to have this issue. I'm assuming it'll get fixed when the current updates go official.
