Hi everyone, I have the following: a64 4000+, 2gigs corsair, audigy 2, and 1 7800gtx on a sli asus board with an antec truepower 550w. Now my problem. When I play BF2 occasionally when i'm around the grass/weeds they flicker like hell, almost like they jump from low detail to high detail and back and forth. Everything else looks great in the game but the whole grass/weed flicker/jumping is really annoying. It seems to do it the most when there are loud explosions around or gun shots. I have tried diff. drivers and I cant make it go away. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I have the same problem...


Never did get it fixed. Was hoping it would be addressed in the new patch but, nope.

So you think it is on the game side not computer side? Meaning its the game that needs work not or computers? LOL?

No idea.

This problems seems to occur mostly with AA on. You could try disabling that and see if it helps.

I get the same thing, have all settings jacked all the way up (including AA). Probably a driver related issue.

I thought there was something in reference to the LOD settings in Rivatuner that could help this or am I thinking of something else? *shrugs*

I HAVE FOUND A FIX!!!!!! Turn on Gamma correct Anti Aliasing!!!!!
It works

Does that fix the jaggy shadows too?

This fix didn't work for me. Could it be a combination of gamma aa and something else?

I've heard that gamma corrected AA is broken in 81.84.

This problem used to happen all the time in Joint Ops ( mainly the trees though ) with beta drivers. Newer offcial drivers fixed it... :D

In Psychonauts grass goes from really lowres and ugly, to normal at a certain distance (LOD I guess), but i cant recall it did that when I played it a while back so Im guessing its something with the 78.05 drivers Im using..
doesnt flicker however, just makes a really harsh LOD transition.. 6800GT..
just though id mention it.. maybe there is something funky with mipmaps on alphablended textures or something, in the drivers?
