Celestia Origin post Installation error

Post #63by UVJ » 04.03.2019, 07:56

I am a first time Celestia Origin user. I have downloaded and installed it. But upon opening it, I see the Planet Earth but many Alphabet like characters all across the screen. I don't know how to upload the image. But I think you have understood. Please guide me what to do.
Thanks.

QVJ,

The many character across you screen are caused by Celestia being in OpenGL 2.0 mode rather than OpenGL Vertex Program render mode while displaying the realistic Milky Way addon.

If you have a minitower computer, get a graphics card and the coorisponding graphics card driver. A laptop is going to be stuck a The current graphics level due to its chipset.

Hi UVJ and welcome to the forum,
I had a similar(?) problem with my lowly video/OpenGL and found that if I deleted
"Realistic_Milky_Way.ssc" from
extras> Lua Edu Tools> adds> Realistic_Milky_Way>
the problem was removed.

Please look at my topic viewtopic.php?f=15&t=18515&p=141462#p141462
in my first post there is a picture of what happened to me, if yours looks the same then the rest of the posts and the advice I received from forum chums :) may help .

Thanks for all your suggestions. However, BorderShed, I implemented your suggestion.
The problem is solved. Yes I was facing the same problem. Thanks.

I've got 2 new Saturn textures based on real data from Hubble, one of them is to replace the old 2009 one:

Hi there! I'm MrSpace43, though I also go by Planetkid32. I've been into Astronomy since I was 5 or 6 and have started making planetary textures back in late 2016. I'm also a 3D animator who makes high quality animations in Cinema 4D. I'm even currently working on a fictional planetary system called the "Onis System."

I support the request. I really haven't come across the right texture yet. :sad:

We already have such rings.
