KS waits for some input at incorrect/odd times

Post by Kage » Sun Jan 08, 2012 1:15 pm

Greetings,

I wanted to post a small issue I've had playing KS with the game waiting for user input at strange times:

The problem is always around, but is highly evident after one play through and skipping lots of text at a time. ANY kind of user input will kick start the skipping again.

OS: Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit.

Here's what a few said in the IRC:
[09:01] <DrJones> Hey, that's the same problem that happened with Mozilla firefox. Basically the thread that runs the game in skip mode freezes and only updates whenever it receives an interrupt such as "mousemove" or "mouseclick"
[09:01] <Esa94> Debian-based distros usually have older versions of some software
[09:02] <Esa94> because of the whole mess with the repositories being tied to versions and whatnot
[09:02] <DrJones> Linux was designed to be dependency hell :|
...
[09:14] <DrJones> I don't think the devs will be able to do anything about it. In any case, it would be ren'py's fault
I'm putting this here as a reference to others as well as a shot at finding out what may need to be updated to get around it.
