0011169: Weird graphic glitches in Adventurer mode
When playing in adventurer mode, the whole game is looking awful with graphic glitches everywhere.

It seems that when a big update is needed on the screen, this problem is more persistent. I am able to reproduce it every time I play in Adventurer mode and the problem occur very frequently.

Some specific actions that triggers the problem is the fast travel and when I enter a tavern, where a lot of people is talking.
- Start a save in Adventurer mode (any race, any skills, anywhere);
- Enter a tavern full of people talking or;
- Activate Fast Travel and start traveling or;
- Bring up menus like grabbing, attacking, talking or something else;

The glitches are everywhere.
I have screenshots.

Also, I am using GemSet tileset with TWBT print mode. Tried with default ASCII (not in the screenshots) and the same problem can be observed.

Simulated with SpaceFox tileset and pure ASCII using TWBT.

With ASCII it happens less often.

Can you reproduce without TWBT which is known to not be compatible with adventurer and often crashes it?

I play with a standard tileset and have never seen anything like the screenshot you posted. Almost 100% sure this is not a DF vanilla bug.

Yup, you're right. Tested with Kruggsmash tileset with standard print mode and it works pretty well. No glitches at all.

This can be closed.
