Green flickering (on visportals?)


Recommended Posts

I am sure I have asked this question before (and I think you guys fixed it once), but I can't recall the answer, so here it goes again.

 

I can't show the screenshots because they don't get captured... But when I am playing TDM, I get strange green flickering on vertical planes that seem to correspond to visportal surfaces. The flickers look like oversized pixels, sort of rectangular-like.

 

I have got an ATI Radeon HD 480, and have disabled Catalyst A.I.

Any ideas? By accident, I could get a screenshot of the problem:

It doesn't look like a VP problem actually, since there was no VP over there when I took the screenshot.

Looks like memory corruption on your graphic card to me. Or overheating?

Yes, I've seen artefacts like that with overheating (though mine were red). I underclocked my video card and it went away.

Hm, it is not a particularly old card - two or three years or thereabouts. Is there a way to tell if it is overheating or dying?

I think the Furmark benchmark is a pretty good way to tell if your artifacting in general and thus have hardware issues.

 

I would get some canned-air and dust out the GPU fan (and other case fans too)...

Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Melan - try underclocking the card, if the card is overheating then underclocking may temporarily fix that issue.

 

And on that subject what card do you have, and as other havs said that is either w failing card or a corrupt gfx driver..

I've got an ATI Radeon HD 4800. I will try those suggestions tomorrow; thanks!
