Ah, yet another command I need to run every time I launch STO to make it look good. First the fov command to avoid the extreme fish-eye perspective that zerobang pointed out, now a video memory command.
I've been running into this issue ever since I got my new computer and started running STO at resolutions higher then 1920x1200. Good to see I'm not the only issue and that Cryptic will at least look into it.
In case my specs are useful to Cryptic as well, here they are:
OS: Windows 8 64bit.
MoBo: Asus P9X79 Intel.
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s).
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900)
GPU: 2x Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB
SSD: Samsung 256GB 840 Pro SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive.
Game Resolution: 6036 x 1200.
Ooh didnt know about the FOV command, what's the command in full and what resolution would you recommend for my set up? "5896 x 1080".
I'm new to these commands, apart from the FOV one which others would you recommend and in what format do you type them in?
I tend to use /gfxsetdefaultfov 25. You can replace 25 with whatever you want, but I found I like 25 for space. I seem to like it lower then others I've talked to though. Even stuff far away looks big, so it helps give STO the sense of scale I think it is missing, and objects on the side monitors don't stretch to three times their correct length. Makes things look a little weird on the ground though. I believe 55 is default. Here is a topic on the fov (and where I learned this command): http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=244699
As for resolution, mine is 6036 wide with bezel correction. Catalyst Control Center will help you get the width correct for your monitors (since the bezels on yours are probably a different thickness).
I'm wondering if the game has trouble with either multiple cards or large amounts of video RAM. I see a couple posters have mentioned a troubleshooting section in the options. I don't think I've noticed that before, so I'll check that out.
im still getting this issue.
Ive noticed that the graphics can sometimes switch for high to low res with no warning.
I can be stood on Earth Space Dock next to the tailor and i can go from high to low to high again without moving or changing a thing in as little as 5 minutes.
under trouble shooting change the video card to the direct x 9 option.
currently STO has model data issues that do weird model data that effects the shadow shader data on most of the models in the game.
as for the issue the op has you need to set the memory limit to 1024+ and dont use newest nvidia or ati drivers they are causing havoc on both of my boxes

Since the last patch I have this problem too. And when going in to the tailor when the settings should be raised if that option is checked, the settings are lowered even further. Which makes editing in the tailor a pita.
I have just warped into the vulcan system when I suddenly noticed that my ship and surrounding ships outer hull went blurry for no reason, the past 30 mins of game play was fine. after messing with the settings I just discovered that "Post processing" was the culprit and once turned off the ship's graphics returned. Bug?
