I discovered that i only have this issue on Stations or planets! When i´m in Space everything is fine!
And to "tedgp123" ....thank you for your ideas......but you sound like a cryptic fanboy^^
I´m really sure that our PSU is right....why should every other game run fine and only STO make this trouble?
I am playing the Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta atm too....and even there everything is fine on high details.
Hope ATI or Cryptic will fix it soon.
Cryptic fanboi... ok. If thats what you call people who troubleshoot problems.
Whenever there are computer issues, any tech support desk will tell you to go over your system and connection with a fine comb.
As for PSU issues, it was a suggestion. This game draws a lot more power due to it being more intense on your system than almost any other MMO out there.
Liek i said, any tech support person will ask you to go over each piece of equipement, roll back drivers, try different setups to see if it is your system at first. Only when they are satisfied it isnt, will they issue an internal notice to get engineers to check their end.
But hey, if you want to go on blaming cryptic without checking your system in detail and seeing if different drivers, setups help, go ahead. Cryptic wont do anything to help you, unless you help yourself first.
I don't exactly think that people are having trouble with their 1000W PSUs running simple dual card configurations.
I realize people have said they've messed around with Catalyst already, but just to make sure this specific point is covered, Catalyst AI can produce these issues with Crossfire configurations if it's set to advanced, so make sure it's off or set to basic (single card configurations are fine).
Of course, given that Vista X64 seems to be the common OS between people suffering from this problem, it also very likely that the issue simply lies there, in which case it falls on Cryptic and/or Ati to fix the issue.
Core i7 920
ATI 4870x2 (2gb) Thats x2 on one card, not crossfire
No issues like that. I have some strange shadow problems that become very apparent in space and sometimes the screen kinda flickers when moving the camera around. But i think that is just because this games engine does not like ATI. Had similar issues with Champions.
I however do have a 1 kilowatt PSU. You may want to take the above posters advice and check your components and PSU wattage availability.
