FSAA set to high leads to crash in Doom 3
 
Hello,

I managed to isolate the following bug :

On a athlon XP 2500+ GF6800 128 Mo, linux 2.4.26+lowlatency, nvidia drivers 6611 or 7174 (tested both)

I'm playing the ROE expansion pack for Doom3 (v1.3).
my screen resolution is 1024*768 *24

During the intro movie there is a explosion effect with a nearly completely white frame. The video in the game will then pause and all later texture will be black IF is FSSA more than or equal to 4x. I also notice that the fps rate drops near 10 just before the crash.

Reducing the FSAA below 4x solved the problem and the frame rate stay a 25 minimum.

According to the doom3 linux developper this is most probably a driver bug.

Anybody else having this issue ?

I only have random crashes with the latest 7174 drivers, 6629 fixes this issue.

I've had that problem in the past, and I found my problem to be that the GPU was overheating. The stock cooler on the PNY 6600gt (my card) is pathetic. I ordered a nice big cooler, and the problem went away. I now run up to 50 degrees cooler.

My problem:

FSAA >= 4x causes hardlocks in Call of Duty under cedega-cvs.
Seems to be OK in other games.

Yes, opened computer chassis and no more lock ups!
Excellent, I'm glad that helped. You might check my post here, where I recommended the cooler I used. It's relatively inexpensive, and made a big difference for me
