Flickering textures

Post by Arakhor » 02 Sep 2017, 17:49

What's causing the issue where some (but not all) of the textures appear to light up, depending on the angle at which I'm looking? It only changes when my cursor moves (and seems to chiefly affect banners, awnings and certain hairstyles), but if I'm moving from "lit" to "unlit" and back again in quick succession, it create a distracting flickering effect. How can I mitigate this effect in future?

Are you running any mods? And can you provide a save game where this can be reproduced?

I'm running quite a few mods, yes, and I can produce any number of saves.

I'll see what I can provide in the morning (UK time).

This is most likely an AMD driver issue: https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/2808

I use a Radeon HD graphics card and that bug report sounds almost exactly like my issue. I guess AMD haven't released the fixed drivers yet.

In the meantime, you can use "[Shaders] force shaders = true" in the cfg file which should probably fix it.

Thanks. I'll give that a try in the morning.

I'm not seeing any more flickering textures, so that's good. Thanks.
