That was with that command? Ouch!! I don't have it that bad. Mostly just blanking screens now in missions and some STFs. I hope that they fix it soon though. It is annoying and makes the game harder to play. You might have to decide whether or not you want to keep playing. I don't feel like I am at that point yet though. I would complain on your support ticket loudly!!
Have ya'll noticed the whole game is blur since S7? With 'blur' I mean:
- Character/BOFF cloth's are looking onsharp, especially at Tailors;
- Panels (i.e. the animated one above exchange Drozana) is blur;
- Star background in star systems (i.e. SOL) are blur, but will sharpened after about 1 minute when hanging idle;
- Ground tiles and scenery textures are blur, seems to me the mipmap is screwed up.
I think Cryptic has added some blur layer or something, what looks great at Onslaught Space, gives somehow a depth feeling. If this is a extra layer of some kind, it screws up a lot of graphic performance. Now and then my STO is crashing, always showing a issue with a nVidea thing what has crashed. Erm... I have double ATI cards with crossfire inside?
I have nothing changed in both my vid settings or STO settings. I'm not want to. I just want the sharpness back in game and get rid of the crashes.
I can no longer get on to ESD or any ground maps it seems. Even just using the bank at Battle group omega makes my driver crash. I have let support know that I have these issues. Until they fix it I am going to tell them every time it crashes. I can't tell if there is a blur or not. I have the graphics set low so everything is a bit blurry now. I will tell Support that even your ATI cards are having trouble. Also I had trouble right off, in Tribble.
Something that I've noticed is that nebula and gas clouds in an instance are almost blinding, I adjusted my video to try mitigating the "glare" but it doesn't go away. At times it has whited out my monitor completely OR masked my ship and those around it so bad that I'm fighting practically blind.
Something I've been noticing while in Q's Winter Wonderland..... I seem to have zero problems in some instances and constant problems in other instances .... and it is not specific to the number of players - I've had some where there's only 3 of us and I'm constantly crashing while another time I don't.
That whiteout problem sounds a bit different from what the rest of us are experiencing. I find it interesting that the crashes are in some way related to what instance you are in. I might try changing instances and see if that allows me to stay in ground maps. Also a really odd thing I have encountered is that my Kinetic Cutting Beam does not show up at all. It fires, and does damage. But no beam...I can't tell if others see it or not. But for now it is an invisible weapon. I don't mind as much though, the graphics driver crashing my computer is muuuuch more serious.
