[Linux]Lens flare visible through objects

Post by NeckBear » 09 Jun 2019, 02:35

I hope this isn't a duplicate post, I've done a bit of digging and came up with nothing so I hope not.I recently swapped to an ATI HD 3650 GPU and I've run into the problem of the sun being visible through buildings and other objects. I don't know where to begin fixing this so could someone try and help me fix this? I'm running this on Arch Linux with the xf86-video-ati driver if that helps any. P.S. I will try and post a screenshot once the forum stops giving me http errors.

That effect relies on occlusion queries, and your card is fairly old, so might not support them. I've had a look at a table saying what should and shouldn't be supported, though, and it looks like you should be fine with that GPU, so maybe Mesa just hasn't implemented support for that generation of hardware.
