Friend of mine improved port of Strife AGA game. He added music and RTG support. He used system function ChangeScreenBuffer() for double buffering. It looks like it works great under AGA and CGX (BVision) but it is blinking on SAGA.
   
  Can please somebody confirm it

  If confirmed any ideas if it is problem on game side or some possible bug in SAGA implementation.

Can you please be more specific?

Did you try version 1.1 or 1.2 and what hardware/OS you use?

Happens with v1.2, OS 3.9, 68060 and on the Vampire 500+. A point to note, the doomsound.library fails with ADoom as well. Is this AHI related? I am curious.

Actually I don't think doomsound.library require AHI at all. There is special 060 version though.

Hmmmm, I am trying to figure out why the doomsound.library fails on both my A1200 tower (060) and the Vampire 500 V2

I found the issue... it appears to be the audio.device in 3.1.4 ROM. When I revert back to the 3.1 Rom (even with patches) all works fine.
 
The doomsound.library fails to allocate the audio channels under 3.1.4 for some reason. It is most likley not OS friendly since this is the only program or library I have had issues with under the 3.1.4 ROM.

Cool. Since you get it to work, can you please test the Strife game too?

I made a Custom ROM swapping out the audio.device with the older version from the 3.1 ROM. The audio.device swap in the 3.1.4 Rom worked great but I needed to have this looked into further so I  took my issue to Amig.org and...
         
A new doomsound.library has been uploaded to Aninet, literally fixed and recompiled less than two days ago. This fixes the capatbaility issue with 3.1.4 ROM's audio.device. Striffe, along with anything that uses the doomsound.library works again under 3.1.4. Since the new library allocates the audio channels properly (unlike the old version) it will be compatabile with all Amiga ROMs.
       
Use the Linlk below for the latest doomsound.library:

I am truly amazed how quickly the guys over at Amiga.org got the problem fixed.

  I can confirm the flickering. The problem is known, it is because SAGA needs 32-bytes aligned bitmaps (bitmap->Planes[0]). The ChangeScreenBuffer() dont do that.
 
  One could handle that by hand. But that is not trivial nor convenient. So we investigated to handle that automatically in the gfx driver. I have build a beta driver, and now Strife does not flickers anymore. Let me test that little more...

Can you do in CLI :
 
c:version libs:picasso96/vampiregfx.card ?

Did you rename the file to "vampiregfx.card" ?

Make a backup of your previous before doing that.
