             Bug #: 29097
           Summary: Worms Armageddon produces a black screen on boot when
                    used with OpenGL DDraw renderer (GDI works fine)
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.28
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: directx-ddraw
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: muzerakascooby at gmail.com
    Classification: Unclassified

Created attachment 37501

terminal output logs for WA with OpenGL and GDI.

When Worms Armageddon is started with the OpenGL renderer (the default,
remember), a black screen is produced. The frontend appears to work despite it
(you can hear the menu sound effects when you mouseover/click buttons), but
obviously you can't see anything, aside from a few white marks on a few screens
that could be the borders to certain controls (which can also be seen when
similar bugs occurred for different reasons on Windows). I have not confirmed
whether or not ingame works, but I can if it is deemed relevant to the bug - I
have a feeling it probably will, because ingame stuff is in general a lot
better-coded than the frontend of WA ;).

I've attached the terminal output from running Worms Armageddon with OpenGL
first and GDI second so you can compare and contrast - note especially line 7
of the OpenGL output.

As usual, the same bug almost definitely applies to Worms World Party, but due
to the difficulty in getting it running with wine (bug 2082), I do not wish to
test for sure. (For the record, Worms Armageddon's latest updates have a
workaround for bug 2082 that is enabled when wine is detected, but at the cost
of being able to minimise once ingame - not usually a problem when you are
running in a virtual desktop).

There are no demos of these games that can be run under wine (again, bug 2082),
unfortunately, so you'll have to buy Worms Armageddon if you want to test

Initial discussions of this bug took place in bug 28217.
