# 1 Blocky Flickering Shadows

Hi all,

I'm experiencing really bad shadows, I know a few threads also talk about this, however I would like to share with you a video showing exactly whats going on:

My pc:

Win 7 64bit
SLI nvidia 480GTX (296.10)

Just an update really after a little research, it seems that the same issue was found in Skyrim.. a work around for this was to set the following parameters in the .ini file:

iBlurDeferredShadowMask=7
fShadowDistance=3000.0000
iShadowMapResolutionPrimary=4096
iShadowMapResolution=8192
iShadowMaskQuarter=10

Star Trek however doesn't have these options in their prefs, but must be adjusted elsewhere, I do not know.
But the Shadowmap Resolution / Distance is definitely the problem.

Please can any other nvidia users either confirm they do or do not have this same issue

Many Thanks
