Picture bigger than resolution bug

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Tue Apr 19, 2011 2:55 am

Since I posted this a month ago inside another topic and didn't get any replies, I'm making this a topic to see if someone can give me some feedback.

I found out that if I try to load an image in the picture editor, that is bigger than my system's/monitor's resolution, it simply won't load. The same way if I resize the picture editor's canvas to a size bigger than my system's/monitor's resolution, the canvas immediately gets cleared. I'm using 1024x768, so if I try to load or make the canvas something like 200x769 (1 pixel taller than my resolution) everything gets cleared. The same happens for the width.

I changed my system's resolution to 1152x864, and was able to load bigger images (1152x864 max size). However when I changed my resolution back to 1024x768 construct crashed.

Is this happening to someone else?

*Normally I could split the image into several objects, but since I'm trying to load a big texture for a mesh object, I'm not able to do it.

I can make an image larger than the screen resolution without issue. I suspect it may be an issue with the graphics card. What graphics card do you have and how much VRAM is on it?

Have kinda same problem, most time if picture is a size of 1024x1024.
When loaded picture is 128x128, 256x256, 512x512 error dont happen much but if the picture is not square it happens also a lot at a kinda random occasion.

my video card = GeForce GTX 260 1.8 gigh ram
windows 7 64 bit
i7 CPU 8x 2.7ghz

All my png's are square but this still random happens:
