I recently decided to reinstall OFP and I sometimes get really weird graphics problems. ***Here are two sample screenshots of what happens...you have to paste these links into the address box since it doesn't allow direct linking. ***I'm shocked they don't allow direct linking, because they say they aren't like geocities in regards to image hosting:
It happened to me before but now it does that very often, especially when I'm playing the resistance island. ***Updating video drivers does not fix it...I've changed drivers at least 5 times in my OFP career and it never totally dissapeared. ***I have to alt+tab out of game and alt+tab back into the game to fix it. ***Today it would happen every 30 seconds or so....not too fun having to alt+tab out that often. ***It happens on single player and multiplayer.
It's probably a software related issue because my hardware doesn't have a problem running other games with high detail on. ***If anyone else has encountered this problem, let me know.
System specs?? Do you have it on HW T&L or not?
Could you see the images in the thread? ***They didn't show up for me so I assumed it didn't work.
AMD Athlon XP 1.33GHz
Shuttle Kt266a motherboard
That's all the important stuff. ***I have the latest nvidia drivers off their site. HW T&L is off.
I couldn't see them at first, but I could after I viewed them in their actual location and came back.
Grrr, I can't get the screenshots to show up unless I open a new window and paste the link in. ***What's the purpose of having a free pic hosting site if they apparently don't allow direct linking. ***Here are the links you have to paste in:
I used to get that problem, I didn't ever find a way to fix it so I just installed Win2K. I guess you are using 98?
Windows XP...I'm pretty sure I have the latest drivers for all my hardware too.
Does turning HW T&L on help? I remember having this kind of bug about a year ago, I solved it by turning HW T&L on.
I thought I had HW T&L off but it was on.....I can't turn it off either. Funny because when I only had the original OFP installed I couldn't turn HW T&L on.
For the guys that encountered this problem......Do you have a similiar rig? I posted my system specs in a thread above.
