Quoting this so it can be ignored some more.
I mean what's fair is fair. If the best advice we can get from them is "roll back your drivers", "why don't you roll back your self-admitted broken shader settings" seems like a pretty fair response to me.
Listen, I'm not trying to troll up the forums saying that. I get that about 90% of these STO forums on the whole are people complaining about things that don't actually need fixing and it makes for incredibly awful reading, and I wouldn't want to post here if I was a Cryptic employee either. That's part of why I don't post more.
This is something that actually needs fixing. This is a serious hardware issue, and I shouldn't have to risk hard-resetting my CPU because I go near the Borg Invasion Zone (which I have to avoid like it's the plague, as one example of a trouble spot).
Even if it was a temporary "fix" on Cryptic's end by disabling the offending effects/settings and dealing with the fallout from there, it would be clunky as hell as far as fixes go, but it would still be a vast improvement.
