Lightwave plain screen using RTG modes after preview is calculated

Hey guys,

Until I figure out the issue with my Vlab Motion, Vampire, etc, I have been playing with Lightwave in RTG modes.

WinUAE, MorphOS and Vampire they have the same issue. Once the preview is calculated, we cant see the geometry, it will be empty.

Lightwave is creating a screenmode that RTG cant emulate. This situation has been for years. Not idea if it is something that RTG or Picasso96 can fix, it is a Lightwave issue......... just dropping here these lines so you guys can take a look.

I did capture some screenshots from WinUAE in debug mode using RTG and Amiga chipset.


Any help will be awesome. Lightwave in MorphOS is running really great.

Thanks for your help.

Hmmm... I run LW on AGA chipset, unfortunately I cant reproduce it.

Do you have the same issue with Vampire? Which Amiga do you run it on?

Maybe a silly question, but have you tried running ModePro to promote the screen to a RTG mode?

Muadib. You need to run a RTG system and use ModePro to force that Layout or Modeler screen to use a graphics card. Using Amiga chipset works fine.

nogginthenog - Yes, that is what I do.

I did test this error in WinUAE (RTG card), Vampire and MorphOS. All of them have the same issue. Everything else works fine, is just creating the Previews you wont see them when it is precalculated, sadly.
