I took this screenshot after trying to ignore what appears to be a lighting glitch...but it got really annoying so I decided to reinstall the game which is taking forever.

Has anyone else had a similar experience and/or solved it?

(The white dots near the end of my shotgun are lights off in the distance that you can see through the walls) :lame:

What drivers are you using? 67.02 doesn't have these problems for me...

Huh, actually looks kinda neat. However I'm pretty sure it's not a lighting glitch, the white lines are being drawn around objects that are supposed to be transparent (that's supposed to be fog in the sky). I noticed the same problem when I tried to play the game on my friend's "integrated" card, go up to a breakable window and smash it and see if it does the same thing. Drivers may be the issue, or something could've gotten corrupted (though I don't think it's that). And make sure it's not running it in "DirectX6 mode" or something in the graphics menu.

I've gone through six or seven (61.77, 65.73, 66.70, 66.81, 66.93, 67.02, 67.20) different drivers on this problem all of which looked like this and I finally just settled on 67.20. And as far as I know I'm not running in "DirectX6 mode".

And yeah the wire frame cube looking things happen all over: when I shoot a soldier/water/glass, and it happened really bad in the airboat level when I had to fight the helicopter, the water that was splashed around from the helicopter blades stirred up mass amounts of these little white frames.

So yeah I guess it was a curropted texture file...after reinstalling the game via steam everything looks good.

Awesome now I can finish it up :)

There was actually a thread about this in the Legacy cards forum...I guess it isn't just because the guy had a 4600.
