    I realized what it could be, and I was right. I had adjusted the bus clock up a little from 104 to 106 MHz in my BIOS and things seemed to still be working normally, at least until this. I changed it back to 104 MHz and now I could unpack the PA archive without trouble. I must say I've never encountered this type of an issue with overclocking before.

    Thanks!

    It's working, but now I have no idea on how to change the resolution and it falls over if you try and go full screen [goes back to showing nothing].

    Been trying to find an answer on the forums, with no luck, game doesn't seem to have a resolution adjuster.

    Also been getting this bug

    It's also known problem. You can edit this file:
    ~/.local/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/window_settings.json
    And put this code into it:
    Code:
    {"fullscreen":true}
    Then it'w will run in fullscreen on start.

    I have to say that with the last update and new AMD's drivers, the game works better.
    I still have huge FPS drops when adding stuff to the build queue (the green thing): from 40-50 FPS to 8-10 FPS for few seconds.

    EDIT: After few mins, I keep getting graphical glitches and FPS back to 20 even after 2 minutes of gameplay.

    Hey so i bought the game on steam and i tried to play a game against an AI; everything was set up but the friend/notification bar at the bottom of the screen is covering the start game button and i can't get rid of it. Also it won't open fullscreen, it will stay in a window that i can maximize to fit my screen, but it's not fullscreen. Any suggestions?

    Probably mac. Until we get our full SDL implementation in place, true full screen isn't possible on OS/X.

    So you decide to use SDL on all platforms?

    This might fix problem with no fullscreen without Aero on Windows then... :)

    We will probably be moving in that direction, yes. Nothing is for sure until it's done, though. :)
