Post subject:  maptools gets crazy when triggering a tooltip

Hello everyone :D ,

I'm new on maptool and I installed the last version. It first opened normaly, but after triggering a tooltip (see image 1), everything I tried to click on the menu causes huge display problems (see image 2).
I tried to find a bug repport first but didn't, if you do, please tell me where :wink:
I search around to find a solution:

- I tried using Java 6, but it just won't start
- Allocate different amounts of memory in the launcher
- clear all my java version, and install the last one (8)again

In the end, it just won't work properly, I tried to use the soft praying that I do not trigger a tooltip, but... not that effective :lol:

I hope you'll help me to find what's going out and to resolve my problem, thank you :)

(sorry if bad english, Frenchie power :mrgreen: )

Mine does this too, but mine is not cause exclusively by using the toolbars. For me it seems almost entirely random. Sometimes when I change maps, sometimes when I pick textures.

this is a graphics card issue. Try changing the settings in the launcher:
in the trouble shooting tab check the direct3D and openGL settings (one, the other or both) see if that solves the issue.

I'm afraid I don't see any Direct3D or OpenGL options in any settings from the launcher.

Those options are only in 1.4.1.x. you will have to specify the opengl/direct3d options manually. Search here and you should find the info. (On the phone so...)

Hi,

Thank you very much Wolf42 and JamzTheMan, it was effectively thoose settings, I first ignored it because I didn't saw a link with the tooltips at first :mrgreen:
Now it works great with the settings I put on the screenshot :)

Thank you again :wink:
