Graphic Glitches with Windows 7 [SOLVED]
« on: 2011 April 26, 12:33:49 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I've googled the problem extensively, but couldn't find a solution (just other people with the same problem, but the only answer they got - if any - was "update your drivers"). With Windows 7, my game looks like this:




OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit / 4GB RAM
Graphic board: GeForce GTX 460 / 1024MB GDDR5

I updated the graphics driver several times (latest version: 270.61), installed the most recent DirectX, with the same results.

I tried changing the resolution and frame rate, shadows on/off, reflections on/off, details high/low, didn't help, nor did playing with various compatibility modes.

Is there any way to fix it?

Is your video card supported?  I don't see it on the list of supported cards on the TS3 Readme.

Which shouldn't be much of a problem, because I'm trying to run TS2 Wink.

According to the game compatibility list in the card's control panel, the TS2 compatibility is supposed to be "excellent", in contrast to games like Oblivion or The Witcher (compatibility is just "good"), both of which run perfectly fine with highest details.

ETA:

I've been able to fix it myself (for now). Obviously, the graphic board doesn't like the ingame anti-aliasing (or, as it's called, "smooth edges" option). The board's AA was set to "use application settings", and "smooth edges" to the least point possible. Now, AA is controlled by the board, and everything seems to be fine.

Ah, duh.  I'm so used to people posting about the current game that I didn't even notice.  How are things back in 2008?

Yes, posting about things related to TS2 in the TS2 forums - who would have expected that?

Things are great in 2008.  My games from the late 90's that I still play say hi, too.

I know the header says 'solved', but incidentally I run the exact same setup as you, with the same graphics card and OS, and I have no problems. I'd advice running a clean setup of the drivers, i.e. return to default settings without any of your saved preferences. The nvidia setup will let you run that from the advanced settings when installing the drivers. Maybe running the setup in safe mode is advisable, but you shouldn't have to with win 7, but you never know.
