Bms and Ubuntu
recently i install Ubuntu 16.04
i have problem with ui screen in bms
in 3d world all is good
in ui i see the 1/4 of ui screen.
sorry for my English.
Have you tried running the 2d UI using the -window option? Are you running BMS in WINE?
All the best, Uwe
window is a solytion
is ok in 2d and ui
but in 3d world have the launch bar
and the top bar(don’t know the name)
and i don’t want that
From display extraction IIRC select no border

Sent from TapaTalk
i find the problem
is 4 workspaces
ui stretched in all workspaces
solution, i let only one workspace
Nice! Which input devices are you using on Linux / WINE with BMS?
you mean joystick etc?
thrustmaster hotas x
mouse and keyboard.
BMS is running surprisingly good with wine on Debian. I just never got opentrack (head tracking) working. Even the Warthog stick is working almost completely…
Use linuxtrack: https://github.com/uglyDwarf/linuxtrack. Install it in base system and install Wine wrapper. Please bear in mind, that you have to install it in win32 mode (set wine with WINE_PREFIX to correct location) and launch BMS in win32 mode (correct x86 binary). It should work (it works with my configuration)
Hi very interested in this discussion: can you plase tell me what you have done for running BMS in Linux? I have Debian 8 (64bit) and I wish to try to use it with BMS, but I guess that your installation is on windows and you use wine to emulate it, right? Well, I have tried time ago to install wine but I got too many error during installation. Did you install wine or q4wine (GUI QT) Thank!
Try using PlayOnLinux. Using the latest wine version at that time I was able to get BMS up and running successfully. I had problems getting my headtracking to work, though.
Thank for your suggestion…
Even though I’m using Mint I think this may be the correct thread to post issues.
I installed Mint 18.1 cinnamon today and the BMS install went surpisingly well. The HOTAS Cougar is being picked up nicely with all axes, BMS starts, 2d works, sound and so all looking good.
I disabled triple buffering as other posters have recommended.
when I enter 3d, I can see the landscape and parts of the cockpit, but the f-16 is rendered in a really weird way (screenshots don’t appear to work yet in BMS, sorry). The cockpit textures look low-res, the plane is rendered only partly and has weird parts like fences sticking out and so on.
Any ideas what could be causing this?
nv drivers 367.xx (install via Mint control panel)
thanks in advance for any hints!
Ok, everything looks ok in 3d in 32bit… I guess I’ll need to install BMS under a 64bit winearch… has anyone run 64bit BMS in Linux successfully?
I know it’s a long way off, but being forced to run in 32bit would prevent me from flying online with my buddies.
