Good evening lads,


Recently i've stumbled upon one issue that is starting to drive me angry.

Textures in game have flickering edges. I even resorted to simple tests.


Here is a video of my issue 


As you can see, edges of circle become flat and round again and again.


I am using LibGdx for "faster" development cycle.


Texture loading looks like this

Spr = new Sprite(new Texture(Gdx.files.internal("data/imgs/img.png")));
Spr.getTexture().setFilter(TextureFilter.Linear, TextureFilter.Linear);

If i change filtering to "Nearest" it "does" the trick, but then i can't scale image properly. It becomes pixelated.


I made a screenshot from game and slapped my texture a top, it seems that unneeded pixels are drawn.





Maybe someone has any ideas where to search for a solution?

Maybe its not even "flickering" and has some other term to it?

A few things I can think of:

- does your texture go right up to the edge of your geometry? If so, try leaving a little space near the edges

- "unneeded pixels are drawn": Does your circle texture have a smooth alpha gradient around the circle (i.e. is it anti-aliased)? If so, it might mean that you're drawing the texture completely opaque for anywhere where (alpha > 0). That's the first thing that comes to mind when you say unneeded pixels are drawn. What blending modes are you using when drawing? (I'm not familiar with LibGdx, so I don't know what it supports).

My guess: by the non-smooth borders of the black circle => blending mode and/or alpha testing issue.


As there is not enough source provided (don't know anything about LibGdx either) - the only advice i can give is: "fix whatever is broken there" :/

I am not sure how the drawing works in general, but if i use part of texture (textures are "power of two") then sometimes i get black line at the edge when moving my object.


Blending mode is enabled together with depth test;, GL10.GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);;

I guess ill check other open source projects made with LibGdx and see how they do it.
