I had this when I first installed my Nvidia card as well.

I found that if you fiddle with the lighting settings/resolution so that it has to restart the drivers or something, it stops it from happening when you put it back to the old values.

Give it a shot - worked for me ;)

I think it happens to all of us if we use the 2xx.xx drivers rather than the 197.xx drivers. Apparently turning off Post Processing (in the STO video options) will stop it, but that switches off most of the nice graphical touches so it's a bit drastic. If you find a specific option that sorts it out, do let us all know.

Well I seem to have fixed w/e was going on for now. Will it pop up later not sure. Last night I took the advice to play around with the lighting settings. Going from Max to Low and so forth. At first didnt do anything than eventually i tweeked around with other things and slowly seen a better outcome. I dont recall what i played with, so i do appaulagise. But eventually the flickering stopped.

Now today I logged in, and went to space dock, no flickering, I checked my settings to get info for this post but to my surprise all my settings were back to max or 100% so i dont know what to tell yahs. Try playing with the lighting seems to do the trick, tinker with the settings till you see an improvement of the flickering till it stops. Best thing I can say.. I hope they can find w/e is causing the flickering and fix it. I didnt by a new comp with a 9800 gtx to see this game flicker. Peace

I've been having this problem, I can get it to go away for a while by either minimizing and then maximizing the window or going from fullscreen to window back to fullscreen again. It's only a temporary fix, though, and it doesn't always work.

I'm using a GTX470 with the latest drivers.

I had this issue as well when I updated teh drivers for my 9500GT.

Simple fix. Rolled back the drivers. The old ones work a lot better with STO than the new version.

i have them on my lan pc but i fixed that with shadows being lowered (Q6600 @3.7GHZ and 2x GTX285 SLI) 258.96 64bit :confused:
But i didn't have it on my Main pc only once but it stopped doing it (AMD Phenom 2 x6 1090T 5970 Xfire) 10.7 64bit :D i am even playing it 3x 1920x1200 (window mode) so i can watch movies

I would like to see a console for more Home tweaks for EXP users:cool:
