Question New to Crysis Beta. Graphics corruption??????????????

Hi all

just bit the bullet & joined fileplanet again as sick of queuing for files

downloaded the Crysis beta & OMFG so much graphics corruption. Textures flashing....objects disappearing

I was running the latest official forceware the .71
but i have now installed the .76 beta driver

It is a bit better now but still occasional glitches.

Is this old news??
Anyone know what my problem is or any advice?

Thanks

It's just loading the shaders. It will go away in a few minutes. It will happen the first time you load up Crysis and each time you make a graphics change.

describe your corruption, there is some known issues but it shouldn't be much.

Make sure AA is set to application controlled.

I had the same problem at first, I had to switch drivers....71's to the .76's fixed it for me.

I've got the .76's.....it has improved the problem but not solved completely.

As requested: the problem is hard to describe exactly but every now & again large objects are replaced by either a black gap....or a brightly coloured luminous uniform texture. This usually just flickers for a second then resolves.

I'm using the .76 drivers and don't have such problems. Make sure AA, AF, V-sync (in the driver) are set to application-controlled. Once the shaders are compiled and cached (takes a minute or two) the flickering textures/corruption should be gone.

If it doesn't go away, you have most likely a memory leak in the shaders. Please file a bug in the bugtracker at the beta forums.

You can also try to disable the shader compiler by changing this line in the system.cfg

r_ShadersAsyncCompiling = 1

to

r_ShadersAsyncCompiling = 0

But remember the compiler is activated by default to find and report bugs/shader memory leaks in the first place.

thanks for that......I know this is a beta so isn't going to be perfect. I just wanted to check that it wasn't my system which was playing up!!
