photon grenade graphic effects gone
since today after the patch and the game "forcing" a new driver or it wont start, i have this issue, that the graphic effects of the photon grenade is completly gone.

meaning the grenade itself and the explosion effect is not visible anymore while using this skill.

anyone else got this problem ?

what i dont understand is, the game was running fine with my old drivers. why is the game now forcing me tio use new ones ?

i also already tried several configs in the graphic options.. turning details down etc. ... nothing works.

I was just coming to the forums to see if anyone else had this issue. Seems specific to photon grenades at the moment as my plasma's seem to show up fine

Same problem although its happening to plasmas too. Also the flame graphic effect they create tends to disappear then re-appear sometimes as well.

I noticed this; the flying through the air grenades no longer show up, nor does the explosion (other than the obvious effect of BO's getting floored).

Doesn't matter what kind. Photon, plasma, stun. They're all bloody invisible.

Same. I also just did a clean install of windows with appropriate updates to it and lates drivers for my video and sound. Glad to see it's not just me with this.

All grenades here except for stun are missing the in air animation, explosion animation and detonation sound effect. :( On the plus side, there much more useful in PvP since its near impossible to evade them now ;)
Dunno if its related in any way but also after this most recent patch ground weapons fire sound cuts in and out.

Edit: Spelling lol
