Summary0004993: r_showportals 1 doesn't do its job correctly
DescriptionWe've talked about this before, so now I'm filing a report with an attached map with a series of visportals in line, extending away from the player.

When the mission starts, what I expect to see is 7 open (green) portals in front of me.

What I see instead, is the closest portal only, and it's designated closed (red).

As I walk down the hall, the closest red portal snaps into view when I get close to it. This continues until I reach the end of the hall.

SVN (Trunk) behaves the same way.

There are other instances where a portal is red when I'm away from it, yellow when I get closer, and green when I'm right on top of it, but let's start with this example.
TagsNo tags attached.

Appreciate the effort behind the test map
The legacy incompatibility between show portals and subviews has grown too annoying with the recent moves of both skybox and lightgem to subviews.
r_skipSubviews 1 is the work around for 2.07 but this bug needs to be resolved anyway.

Even the "red->yellow->green as you get closer" transition is now fixed.

Mappers need a working showportals right? Maybe consider offering a patch for download?

Revision: 7969
Moved parts of the show portal code to frontend so that it allows SMP and subviews

A patch for mappers would be appreciated, yes. I just came here after encountering this bug.

Reminder sent to: duzenko

Do you think these two commits could be merged into a local 2.07 working copy without issues? If so, would you mind attaching appropriate binaries to this issue so mappers can use them?

The users in the AMD bugs forum thread said my build worked for them.
I could build another one and attach here but it 'feels' rather awkward.
I would prefer an official 2.07 R2/SP1 but I still need to hear about the MESA linux issue.

Changed target: it is fixed in 2.07-hotfix (just released).
