In UT2003, the character shadows are randomly flashing. It's hardly noticeable, but when I jump from above to frag a bot below me, I could note his shadow randomly flashing.

What could be causing this?

The config in my sig is not uptodate. My card is still a BFG 5900NU, but it's not flashed anymore, and it the OC is backed down to 480/980. Cooling is now a Zalman Z80C-HP with a Coolermaster blue LED strapped onto it. Temps are not a problem, and I tried backing down from the OC to defaults. Still no go. I even uninstalled the drivers from scratch using DetonatorRIP, but still the same problem.

It appears you haven't included your sig. However, this might be an anisotropic filtering or v-sync issue. Are either of those on?

Vsync is on and I usually have aniso on 2x default.

I also tried disabling those and it had no effect.

How can you tell that these two options have a bearing on the character shadows? Just curious.

Umm, just wondering. How could you be running UT2003 at 475/950 at 1600x1200 with 4xAA and 8xAF at max detail? That's impossible. I can't even do 2XAA and 2XAF without getting jerks, at 1280x960. And I have the same card as you, the BFG 5900NU, except it is flashed to a 5900 Ultra, with clocks at 465/980.

It seems that installing 56.64 solved the shadow flashing issues for me.

Now to flash to a 5950....
