went to b'tran and engaged a few ships only to find no weapons graphics, tho shields hit were visible. restarting from the launcher seems to have corrected this. I'ld put up screenies, but they're corrupted. also, while in transit, and at SB1, there was some kind of streaking. screenie: http://img682.imageshack.us/img682/5359/streaking.jpg
This latest patch has caused my gameplay to be slower and now there are these slight hesitations when I am moving my starship around. I haven't experienced this before with this game. I have an NVidia GeForce 9800 GT graphics card with 1GB of video memory. The game has worked like a charm before this last patch update.
