View Full Version : CoD:What the heck is this?

12-23-04, 03:08 PM
I'm getting some strange effects in COD.
Check out this MOVIE (https://home.comcast.net/~mrzoso/CoD.avi), to see what I mean(it's about 10MB AVI format)
I'm running Windows XP w/SP2, Athlon 2400+, FX5900 128MB NU.
I only get this in CoD and RTCW. I've tried different drivers, settings, BIOS settings, even different video card BIOS.

Looks like you are overclocking and have the card's timings set too high. Back it off some.

Card is at stock speeds, but thanks.
Just tried Q3A and it doesn't do it,,,strange.

If the above movie link doesn't work for you try this ONE (https://home.comcast.net/~mrzoso/cod2.avi)

Running 8xAGP? Try lowering to 4xAGP, Had that issue with my Motherboard.

If that doesn't help, your card is busted... can't really think of anything else if its at stock speeds.

My board only does 4x.
What's getting me is that it only happens with those two games, any other games I have no problems with.

You must of used some funky codec for this movie, because it refuses to work on my MP10 with the extra MP9 codecs. :(

Did you try the 2nd link? Try this one (http://home.comcast.net/~mrzoso/cod2.avi)

I'm trying the 56.72 drivers now, seems to have fixed it so far, but I loose DX9.0c support. Still have to do some more testing.

Wow, that's wacky. Sorry, I have no idea why that's happening if you aren't overclocking. Good luck with that.

That same thing happened on my little brother's box once in BF1942. Restarting the game usually fixed it, but eventually newer video drivers solved the problem (which obviously hasn't for you). He's running an AthlonXP 2500+ and an ATi 9600 Pro. Still puzzles me though, I thought it may have been an ATi-only issue but now I don't know.

This is a shot in the dark, but you may want to try Detonator Destroyer and follow up with a fresh driver install. Other than that I don't know anything to do other than a complete format and reinstall. Hope you figure it out.

Thanks ZoSo, that got it.

I had that problem and it turned out to be a bad stick of ram. Try memtest86. Also check temps and if all else fails try a format maybe.

RAM tested fine. Older drivers seem to do the trick, but loose DX9.0c support :(

I was useing a 5950 BIOS, and restored it back to the original and still got the problem, was useing NVIDIAS latest drivers(the past two sets)
But I think my problem is solved.
Went into safe mode, uninstalled drivers, through control panel, and ran Cab Cleaner and Driver Cleaner, rebooted, installed the 71.20's with a modded nv4_disp.inf. Artifacts are gone!
I even put back my modded 5950 BIOS and everything is OK so far.
