03-15-06, 02:04 PM
throughout parts of the game on the edges of signs on walls i get some trailing hues when i move my mouse fast. also in specific pats of the game, not randomly, i experience this:
i'm using a LCD and i even reduced my core/mem clocks down to the 300s and voltage at 1.3V (R580 core/1.1ns samsung ram.) the specific weirdness never went away, i'm in the process of reinstalling everything including FEAR... i had installed the February Web update of DirectX also... (can't make it go back?)

I've never seen the issue.

I have - on both the 68GT and 78GS.

could my hardware be damaged?
i had a R300 that was bad and the artifacts weren't limited to a specific game..
i really hope my card isn't broken... it runs very cool 67C max load... some say it looks like a bug in the game

Is your copy of F.E.A.R. completely up to date (v. 1.03)?

Zao It's flickering, right?
Zao I get it as well.
Zao Looks like some kind of Z fighting of two polygons.
Zao I'd say it's a level geometry error.
Zao Be happy, your card isn't broken :)
he's using an NVIDIA G70, yipee!!
blast a hole right under the armpit of the body!
will you guys help report this?
Zao's results 1.02:
got the exact same thing on my 6800GT and 6600GT and 7800GT :). just about any time there's a decal texture of some sort put ontop another this happens. shoot a hole into the floor just outside of the pool of blood and you won't see the flicker. shoot a hole that's half in the pool, half not, the half in blood pool will flicker.

I wouldn't judge anything like that in a game until I had atleast patched it to the latest version, were upto 1.03 and for very good reason.

a lot people have proclaimed the same problem with 1.03 and there's no mention of real graphical changes in the ChangeLogs.
I've never seen that either with patches or not.

...that's why i included an exact savegame spot for where it occurs...
