Description Denis 2019-09-10 10:28:19 UTC
According to Danylo's investigations, he found out that shadows flickering in the game are related to the same issue with shadows, reported here https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110395
But now there is impossible to reproduce that problem in Supertuxcart. I re-checked Tropico and found out, that flickering is still actual for the game. More over - patch, maiden for tuxcart - fixes it => https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/merge_requests/660

Attaching apitace for the game => https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sYaMbbZLrIsB4GItKdty6wzYmJ0BDN1i
(pay attention to the shadows under the trees, all other "flickers" not relate to current discussion)
Comment 1 Paul 2019-09-10 14:26:37 UTC
I've checked the issue on the BSW (Fedora 29, kernel 5.1.6) with mesa 18.3.6 and the latest master version - no flickers in the trace for both versions.

I'll check the issue on the BDW and post results here.
Comment 2 Paul 2019-09-12 12:38:34 UTC
I've finally rechecked the issue on the BDW (Intel® HD Graphics 5500) with system mesa 19.0.6 and the latest master version - didn't see any flickers.
Comment 3 Paul 2019-09-16 12:06:32 UTC
Also, the patch fixes flickers of trees in Tropico 6 on the HSW (Intel® HD Graphics 4600).
Comment 4 Paul 2019-09-16 14:56:38 UTC
Sorry for the my useless comment higher.

Also, the issue from https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110395 is actual for HSW.
And it also fixes via Danylo's patch.

Could anybody can make these checks on HSW also? Trace for the tropico - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sYaMbbZLrIsB4GItKdty6wzYmJ0BDN1i. 
Trace for tuxcart - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hTRS3tgBuSOSNiFGoy7JaLVKkVeNmwb0

With patch and without patch

This is a user-visible (bad) bug, but it hasn't been shown to be a regression.  Per the mesa release policies, we are not going to block the release based on it.

Denis/Danylo: I believe there is some review feedback on MR 660 that you can use to get the WIP tag off of that fix.  If you are unsure of what needs to be done, can you follow up with the reviewers?
Comment 6 Denis 2019-09-24 20:06:08 UTC
Sure, Mark. We will check it
