i tried clean installs too and had contact with nvidia support. we tracked down the prob to the drivers - took a week. also in other games forums many users - not all - had the same probs with 310.xx

Maybe the MB Chipsets/Ram and/or other devices interfere with the drivers too.

just install an older one (304 should work) and all should be ok.
there is nothing Cryptic can do.

Yes, I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, and I went back to 306.97. "Best" place to see the bug is to walk around the tailor area of ESD.

I upgraded to the 310.xx drivers the other day, as I seemed to be getting a lot of bluescreens which I thought might be caused by the previous drivers I had. Although I haven't had any bluescreens since, I get the dodgy flickering effect on a lot of textures, such as the Breen ship skin and my main char's pants.

Is there any official place we can get slightly older drivers from? I don't want to go back as far as 306.97 as I think they are what caused my previous bluescreen problem.

Cheers all!

PS. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with a 1Gb GTX 460.

I use an ASUS Geforce GTX 660 Ti and am running the latest driver from the Nvidia site (i.e., 3.10.90 WHQL). I am using Windows 7 64 bit.

I can easily reproduce the flickering head problem you mention IF I use Direct X11.

Changing the video card options (in-game) to use Direct X9 and restarting the game, fixes the problem. I've been trying every release from Nvidia to see if it fixes the flickering problem while in DX11 and have had no joy. I am forced to switch back to DX9 every time.

I wish they would address the Direct X11 issue though.

i had massive problems with my card in the beginning and did all that was aforementioned with no success. what worked was to change my clock speed on my shader setting. the higher the speed the more problems i had and dialing back worked. try this.

I have the same problem with my 560 Ti and I'll roll back to 304.

At least we can roll back to older drivers since we have regular driver support unlike those idiots that use the onboard Intel cards who screamed and complained at Cryptic when their game stopped working and all they had was a two year old driver to mess with.
