AMD released new drivers today version 12.2. (They mistakenly show as 12.3 in the catalyst control panel)

Unfortunately, these drivers cause graphics corruption in StarTrek Online which looks a little like this:

I haven't had a chance to extensively test to see whether or not if its a misconfiguration. I'm in the process of doing a clean install of the drivers.

BUT this is the only game that I've tried so far that exhibits this type of corruption.

Games that passed so far:
Dota 2 Beta
Witcher 2
Sonic Generations
Trine 2
Portal 2
Civilization V
Diablo 3 Beta

Games that fail so far:
Star Trek Online
Champions Online

Is your STO Client configured for DX11 or DX9??? (Could make a difference...)

The game was in DX9 Mode.

Through trial and error, I found out that this issue is caused by the Anti-Alias option. Turning off shadows causes this corruption to reduce, but not disappear. With AA on, it was exposing a hex-like pattern. Most likely the polygon borders.

(changed to Anti Aliasing)

revert back to 12.1 and disable the auto updater for your ATI/AMD graphics card and bam problem fixed

If you're using windows 7 then you need to go to start menu - control panel - recovery

once you click the recovery icon the dialog box will appear and say something along the lines of start recovery or open recovery and then it will guide you through how to rollback your system to before you updated your drivers.

Do we know if there is going to be a permenant fix for this? Most of the time, when you go to a game's support site for help, their first response is "do you have the latest drivers for your video card?" Kind of hard to say, no, I have this other game that wont work with these drivers. They usually say "Tough Nuggies".

I noticed there are 2 mentioned on AMD's site that this is also affecting Star Wars, The Old Republic.

So far, the quickest workaround I have found is to just turn off the Anti-Aliasing in game. I guess we will need to wait for a patch from STO or AMD.
