I've tried playing with all the different graphics options but I still keep getting these annoying flickering black boxes along the edges of all the models.

Any ideas? (Pic Included)

Hate to state the obvious, but are you using the latest drivers for your video card?

Yeah, fraid so. I've got a Radeon 9800 with the very latest drivers.

Do you have bloom on? If so, you might want to test with it turned off.

Yeah, the bloom was off by default and it's the same no matter what graphics options I change. Bloom on/off etc... I've even tried adjusting the monitor refresh rate to no avail.

I'm completely confuzzed!

Just for the sake of argument, have you tried a clean reinstall?

Sorry guys!

After a sudden nostalgia trip I installed Doom III and I got the boxes with that too, exactly the same. I've done some extra digging and it turns out my graphics card has overheated and died!

Ah well... Time to put my hand in my pocket, again!

Thanks anyway.

Well I guess that would explain why we haven't seen anyone else with this problem. Sorry to hear about your graphics card dying though. :(

Look on the bright side; it wasn´t an 8800 GTX...

Wait a minute, wait a minute.
Doom 3 is nostalgic? Man I must be old.

I was too embarassed to admit it, but I was thinking the same thing:D

When I'm feeling nostalgic I bust out XCOM or Wolfenstein 3-D... *LOL*

Wolfenstein owns. Period. lol:D

Used to play XCom with a friend of mine for hours on end. Loved that game. Incidentally, if you enjoyed XCom you might be pleased to see this http://ufo2000.sourceforge.net/

Wolfenstein wasn't really my cup of tea, I've always been something of a strategy/CRPG type. Though I was positively absorbed by Duke Nukem 3D when I first saw it.
