Set the bloom intensity (or quality) to low. It fixed not only that for me, but also the fits I was throwing, every time I used Emergency Power to Shields
Honestly though, I'd rather they fix what's wrong here. We sholdn't have to suffer by setting all our graphics to low, simply to walk through a room without it flickering.
I've already had to make adjustments to my graphics, as everything up until DS9 was playing beatifully on high graphics settings, but then I got to the Empok Nor mission and the framerate dropped in half and just about every mission after that seems to suffer from framerate issues. I don't know if they just got carried away with extra poly's in this area or what, but I had to drop my settings to medium just to be able to fly around with a decent framerate.
I work tech support and looking through this thread I don't know if this is something that is happeneing to everyone or just a select few I am having the same issue but if this is not happening to everyone then perhaps it is certain HW so I am posting my specs for review:
Win 7 Professional 64 (Version 6.1 (Build 7600))
Asus Maximus Formula II
Intel Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
4 GB DDR2 Ram
74 GB Western Digital Velociraptor (Primary with windows)
200 GB Western Digital Caviar (Slave with game installation)
ATI Sapphire 4870 HD 1GB (Driver version 8.702.0.0)
I have lighting issues too that just came about with recent patches. Exploring ground cave-type maps and other maps with similar colors, the mini-map is useless. The mini-map is basically a black-out, an almost single color. I cannot see the halls/tunnels/path through the maze. It's very annoying.
