View Full Version : Screen Flicker - Unplayable Fullscreen

04-04-2009, 04:25 PM
I just bought this game and installed it, but I'm getting extreme screen flicker if I run in fullscreen mode. It seems to work fine in windowed mode though... tried with all graphics options at the lowest and highest settings, nothing seems to help. I did install all the way up to the latest beta patch, no change.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit (tried the various compatibility modes - no difference)
CPU: QX6850
GPU: HD4870

Any suggestions?

For screen flicker I would make sure monitor sync is on and/or update your graphics card drivers. If neither of those work you could try to turn off the hardware cursor.

Unfortunately none of that worked... the only thing that works is running the game in windowed mode. No other games that I own exhibit this behavior....

Hmm. You don't have monitor sync or something list that forced off in your graphics card options do you (in windows itself not in the game).

Other than that I don't have any other ideas at the moment. It might be something broken in Windows 7 (if it is I hope they fix it before they release).

Anyone else have any ideas?

I had the same issue, actually; also on Windows 7 64-bit. Running in a full-sized window actually works well, though (that is, the window being the same size as the desktop resolution), so I do that. I prefer it anyways; faster task switching.
