# 1 Flickering Graphics
01-12-2010, 10:44 AM
Hey all,

while I have been getting the "Map is full" error, I did manage to get in to the tutorial once. When I was inside the graphics were flickering like mad, sometimes everything but the UI would go out, sometimes it would just be a black slash across the screen. I am running a ATI Radeon X4350 mobile graphics card on a laptop. Last night I updated the drivers, then when I was getting the flickering I tried rolling them back. Now I'm getting the Map is full error, which is understandable what with the server load and all, so I haven't been able to test in game with the driver rolled back, however at the character selection screen I still get the flickering, so I'm guessing it'll still be there once I'm in game. Any thoughts?

EDIT: This is NOT the loading screen issue that many are reporting! This is an in-game graphical issue that makes the game UNPLAYABLE!

Remember to hit the green bug in game to report the bug properly. You will be prompted for a description. Don't just post here

I've beta tested many times before, I know how it works bug reported, details and all, I was just wondering if anyone around here had found a fix for this issue or was having the same problem.

I get a litle flickering too, but really only on a LOADING screen where only the background flickers madly. This is running on a Radeon HD5870 card.

I get this same thing... But I'm running an Nvidia GTX260 with the 191.07 WHQL drivers. Since you have this on an ATI/AMD card that indicates this is an issue with their game engine! It's really an epilepsy hazard! I wonder if Cryptic has incorporated a disclaimer for that yet?

So after managing to connect and run around a little, it doesn't make the game entirely unplayable, but almost, I imagine if I was in a serious combat situation I'd be unable to make it through. Hope there's a fix coming, but that's the way beta goes!

I get the same issue with the backgrouond loading screens on the 9800gtx+ on latest drivers. In game is fine, although choppy in places

Anyone come up with a workaround for this with the ATI cards?
I just made it into the space part of the tutorial and it's impossible to play with this graphics issue, a total showstopper, I really hope this gets fixed by release because if it doesn't it looks like I'm out of luck as far as playing this game is concerned.

At the loading screen the edges blink like a strobe light. I had to remove my friend from the room as she is prone to seizures and this was happening alot. I have noticed this since closed beta, but thought it might be my graphic card. Going to attempt it on several computers before I actually bug it tho.
