NanoVG not loading .bmp files (rare occurrence)

Just to report this somewhere, I have a VERY small number of customer reporting issues with the F-35 XML primary control display - so that all the the gauge works fine but all the bitmap files are not loaded/shown.

The problem is solved if the user turns off the "USE NANOVG FOR XML GAUGES" option.

This is a very rare occurrence (estimate 0.2% of our users) but maybe worth mentioning.

Hello @Indiafoxtecho,


This could be because NanoVG doesn't support loading of 8-bit indexed bitmaps for now, although if that's the issue every user should experience it. Can you check if the bitmap in question are indeed 8-bit indexed or not ?

Difficult to say for sure that there are no 8-bit bitmaps, as the gauges uses hundreds of them (roughly 340), but most of them are 24 bit (I checked about 20 of them).
Note that at the moment we have just a couple of users reporting the problem.

The impacted users are having the issue 100% of the time or it happens randomly for them as well?
