Im having similar problems. My comp is brand new today. : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz, 2668 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series 1 gig of video ram, 3 gigs of 1333 mghz ram
I'm having shadowing issues. If i turn the shadowing down to low it mostly clears up except around alot of particle effects, but I get terrible artifacts around the edges if shadowing is on medium. my old comp ran it slower, but without any artifacts even in high particle effect areas.
Now that you say that, I forgot to mention that today I noticed on a ground mission that shadows in the corridors were awful. I was chasing a dark boundary ahead of me about ten feet the whole time, as if they aren't being drawn correctly.
i love you... so much.... sorry but that worked for me thanks much!
I'm glad it did. Standard fix for unexplained performance drops in newly released games that are unoptimized in the driver. Cryptic needs to fix the issue itself, but AMD also needs to update our video drivers with optimizations for STO. Plus, I want a CrossfireX profile for STO.
