A bug founded: 1.1.10.x

Check Forums.alliedmods.net

If you rotate arch able triangle to middle angled mode but it cannot snap to if I use 90 ° / 4 = 22.5 °
4 sides of triangles
22.5 ° is angle of triangle and i move to middle angled of triangle is 11.25 ° result triangle middle angled line cannot to snap to grid if triangle line is not horizontal or vertically?

Please fix it!

I mean triangle can not snap to cross like vertex should leg to cross of grid. You can try 128 x 128 x 128 with 16 sides of arch than rotate 22.5 than triangle can't make horizontal? If you don't understand than I will capture video than I will show you okay

I configured Jackhammer to create maps for Star Wars Jedi Academy. It throws ~200 errors about unknown shader parameters but it works... well almost. Some textures from shaders are not present (they are not missing they are just not in editor. it's about 30% of textures) also some normal image textures that are not assigned to any shader are not present as well... don't have an idea why. They should be loaded just like others textures from textures folders. It's so random.

Uhh...not sure if I should post this here but I guess I should. Basically whenever I load up my map, all the textures are completely grey and/or white. I've already tried using window options (3D textured, etc) but nothing works. Something came up at the bottom of the screen: "missing wglSwapIntervalEXT function". I don't know what it means or how to fix this. Could I get an solution please, it's super annoying!!

That is not bug. possible you need autorun of display configuration like AMD CCC or NVIDIA Display Manager because they run wglSwapIntervalEXT" calls from GL or OpenGL support. If you can't see than you try administratived cmd -> "net stop uxsms" than "net start uxsms" and open Jack Hammer and check if you see textures in 3D View.... :)

@XeroX it is not bug - you need switch with uxsms via aero If you are using Windows 7 SP 1. I don't know if you use Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 than you need switch with uxsms....
