[SOLVED] Graphic glitches, laptop with Intel HD Graphics?

Hi, I got the game in the recent Humblebundle and tried it today on my linux laptop
  • Linux Mint 14
    i5 520UM 1GHz
    Intel HD Graphics
    8GB RAM
The game runs fine and I'm now playing the tutorial (have made it to the second era :), but there is some serious problems with the graphics.

It is only when I'm playing though, menues and loading screens look great, but gameplay looks as the attached image (I hope that it will be attached, new to the forum and never used that feature before :) )

I am thinking that it is because of the crappy graphics capabilities of the CPU that the graphics in the game is wonky, but I am hoping that it is a fixable wonkyness :)

Hello,
I'm on Windows 7, on a laptop with Intel Graphics too.
I also purchased the game on Humble Bundle today, and tested it both on Steam and without Steam (normal windows installation package), and I also have those poor graphics. So it must not come from Linux port, but more from the graphic card. Are there command line switches available to better control the video output of the game ?
Thank you anyway for this nice game, I look forward to really play it :-)

Have you tried disabling hardware instancing in the Reus config file 'Config.xml'? Which can be found at: "C:\Users\<UserName>\Documents\Reus" in windows. For Mac OSX the file can be found at: ~/Library/Application Support/Reus.

Add the following code to either an existing 'Rendering' tag:

Code: Select all

<DisableInstancing>true</DisableInstancing>
Or create the tag if it does not exist in the file yet:

Code: Select all

<Rendering>
    <DisableInstancing>true</DisableInstancing>
</Rendering>
Let me know if this helps!

Thanks Tim! That worked for me (although my laptop CPU gets quite warm while playing : )

For those wondering, I was able to find Config.xml in Linux under ~/.local/share/Reus/Config.xml

Thank you! Now it works and look great! I'll finally be able to play this game :-)
Maybe a note on this in the Wiki would be appreciable.
Thank you again !
