    Mounting 'breaks' Shadowform visuals

    The minute the mounting cast is complete, you lose that black/shroudy visage surrounding you and become almost entirely visible again. If you have a priest to give it a try, you will see that the only thing that remains from the SForm graphics after mounting is that blueish smoke emanating outwards.


    Where's my black!?! Give it back!
    Goddam gnomes. They're behind everything.

    Categorising as urgent! The end is nigh you infidels. Reap what ye saweth

    This does not happen on my server. Since I have a fever and have been home today I played with my mom for a while, who is a priest. She does not seem to have the issue you are describing. She was even turned into a pig by one of those machines and that went shadowform, mounted her horse, and then it was a shadow piggy on a shadow horse. Kind of amusing.

    You have posted several graphics-related issues which I believe may be client-side. Graphics are rendered on your end. I am fairly positive that your issues are client-side. Could you paste a screenshot of your video options? I remember that with certain nVidia cards and a bunch of ATI cards, one or two options caused oddities. I want to say it was "Smooth Shading" or "Smooth Mouse", but I forget. I actually experienced the issue on a GTX460, but it does not affect the GTX550Ti's I have in my matched WoW systems. These are two Dell XPS400's I grabbed, popped in Pentium D 960's, maxed out at 4GB of RAM, and threw in Creative X-Fi cards. These systems are primarily for WoW and some older games, and do not have the issues you mention. Now the second one USED to have an nVidia 8600 in it, and I had to disable the smooth shading or everything looked funny.

    Next time i will make sure i am a touch more analytic :)
    Ok, things i had tried prior to posting the issue in the first place:

    1. Smooth mouse and smooth shading (both exist) were both turned off, i've known about them
    2. Have on my own tried enabling them (just to see what would happen; it being issue persisting with the added benefit of some screen tearing)
    3. Have changed my NVidia ctpl to disable everything extra, to run as default, or to run as let the program decide. Again, same issue
    4. Tried it in a different private realm, where it works just fine
    5. So concluded i could post this as a bug :)

    Now as for your screenshots, wow saves in .tga wich most uploaders do not support, and i cba downloading software to convert them in all honesty, my limit is wasting 10 minutes (which i already have) trying to find an uploader that works. If the forum supports emailing, will email all 3 to you. One in normal state, one in Sform, one mounted right after Sform is activated so you can have a look.

    I suggest Irfanview for Windows. Just grab it and the plugins and it can open, edit, and convert ANY image format in seconds. If you're a photo buff, check out GIMP. It runs on all major platforms and is what Adobe wishes Photoshop was.

    Now from what you tell me I probably do not need a screenshot. Since you say it works in one spot and not another, that does seem odd. I do not know what Max is running on Covenant, so maybe he will chime in. I run R20 since it is the next release and the one I choose to work on. I Believe he is running R20 also, but I may be wrong. If he is running R21 it may be an issue with R21 which I cannot help with since I am not familiar with it, yet.

    Max?

    The above btw, happens with -any- mount, tried slow ones, fast ones, easily obtainable ones, rare ones.
    (and apologies for posting an already posted bug before. I had not even seen how it auto-hides posts)

    I see what you're saying, but I am unable to remember if that is correct behaviour back in 1.12. I know in Lich King and newer everything goes really dark, but I seem to remember this from some point. Can you find any videos or pictures from 1.12 on official servers to compare to? I will be looking for that info myself now.

    i asked an ex guildie, he too confirms. Nothing that broke visuals. It is self evidently a bug, but there you go, corroboration :)
