Today I tried to reactivate the long forgotten detail textures again. I tried both Daniel Norton's and jDRP's pack with the unstable build 2870, but unfortunately Doomsday keeps crashing with segmentation violations. Detail textures used to work great in old builds like v1.8.6 (Kickstarter).
There had been issues with detail textures not working in the past, but according to feedback from Dani J
those had been fixed with build SVN 1.9.0-beta6.4 (Snowberry).
Are the crashes probably due to a regression that has crept in sometime?
