Buttons Are Blank On War2.ru server Windows 8
« on: April 08, 2015, 02:20:57 AM »
Not sure why but the bottom are blank on the war 2 server. Everything else works great.

Also seems to be transparent and showing the background. Ideas?

Does this only happen when you take a screen shot?

Nope. Happens all the time. The first time I logged in it was super hard to create the account because the background was all transparent and buttons didn't have labels.

No, how do I do that? I don't see that version of the program downloaded.

I'm on Windows 8.

That had an effect but made it blank in and out during the normal intro screens.

I could see button but if flashed back and forth to the regular desktop.

Any ideas?

Try going to the same menu, UNchecking compatibility mode if still checked, and checking this option under settings:

squeak!

I tried everything along time ago with 8, 8.1, 10 beta... nothing worked. The ddraw hacks made it worse for the battle.net interface.

I'm going to try to mess with font.

Hmm weirdly, i haven't had any problems like this. I have tested it on win 8, 8.1 and even 10 beta. I have screenshots somewhere of results.

Nope the colors are perfect, but your battle.net and icons are all in black with the text above it...... that picture he uploaded dosent actually show us what he sees. You don't see icons and you do see player names with chat but navigation around the game channel, profile, will cause it to bug. I think something isn't refreshing right and old color fixes don't work.

Ask Lance to see if his edited direct draw hacks will work. I can't find a link to custom client.

Yes but a huge throw off and confusion for someone just trying to play a game. Put it this way you join bnet and try to view profile, chat, icons, channel, game list. All is fucked and almost unreadable unless you relogin or join or create. Which is all a pain in the ass because of text appearing over text with half of the gui missing and over lapping like the text.

But yea if you make it to a game bravo it's perfect lol ;)

Yes, this is known problem with win 8, there's no wokring solutions now.
And another known problem with win 8 is SS in chat, as posted.

Aqrit have some ideas about that, i hope he will make something working with that some time. (Or probably i'll try, but it's a high priority task for me).
Need help to translate War2Combat to German, French, Italian, Polish or another language: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,4728.0.html
