# 1 lingering beams
04-02-2010, 04:08 PM
I seem to have lingering beams impacting my character and members of my awayteam on several ground fights. I have studied it pretty thoroughly, and I have noticed a few things.

It does not appear to happen near as often in PvP based ground fighting.

It appears to be limited to phaser beam textures, and not other energy type weapons

It does not alway go away after a loading screen moving to another "level" or section of a ground mission, though sometimes it does.


Anyone else experience this?

I have noticed it on other weapons as well. On some missions it really impacts the framerate, especaially when you're up against the dual disruptor wielding swordmasters, and the Cardies with multibeam rifles. After 2 or 3 lives you'll have so many pulses or beams sticking out of you that it's near impossible to play. I've noticed other effects sticking to characters too. my junior tactical officer had an expose graphic stick to her for quite a while, it didn't go away after the mission completed like the beams, I had to dismiss her to get rid of it. And for a while my chief engineer had a transporter effect stuck to her, although it seemed to go away eventually.

did your tac officer have the skill draw fire?... if so you dismissed your tac officer for doing as she was intended

I have the same issues as well. Multi-beams anchored to my avatars bodies and they stay the whole mission. making it hard to see where some shots are coming from. Just yesterday, any beam i fired fired back to the anchor point of the lingering beams. strangely, i could still damage the object i was aiming at. Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed?
