    I'm finally get PA to work:
    58772_open_source_works2.png

    It's was really useful that devs move rendering settings to JSON. ;)
    Currently I might say for sure that crash related to shadowmap/prelight. I'm not yet know what exactly cause crash, but it's looks like related to features lighting/shadows.

    To apply fix you need to do that:
    1. Download "content.json.zip" achieve
    2. Extract it
    3. Copy "content.json"
    4. Paste with replace into "media/shaders/"
    As result game won't crash. :rolleyes:

    Little update. Currently I know for sure that crash caused by two effects from content.json: "textured" and "textured_normal". According to grep output planet features using them.

    It's interesting that "textured_normal_material" don't cause crash even if it's used mostly same set of shaders.

    Nice. This makes it working for me again on the Intel HD4000! I bet you "saved" Christmas for a lot of people now. (Well, "a lot" in Linux user terms. :) )

    I'm crashing after it says the game will start after the world or whatever is created. If I reopen PA it says I have a game already started. Then it crashes again after starting to begin the game. Is this the right fix or a different problem?

    This is the right fix for your problem. SSX's fix fixes the problem where generating a planet causes a crash. So for instance, pressing PREVIEW in the system editor or in your case, rejoining a game or joining a game after having pressed READY in the lobby.

    Fix still working for 59549, but now it's looks like HDR is broken. :(

    Yeah its broken again :(
    Is there a way to turn off HDR or something to test the new 59549 release?

    It's can be disabled in settings, but you can try my fixed shaders from here: PA#2949
