Somethings wrong with the water diplay
« on: May 24, 2009, 10:35:17 AM »
Hello everyone :)
I started nwn and Potm some weeks ago.. and the water just doesnt look right. Its divided into big squares and some of them looks like their "lagging" or blinking. its kinda hard to explain..
Any ideas? Ive tried to set the resolution and all the settings for details in different positions.

Under advanced video options, is the enable shiny water box checked?  Mine did the same thing until I disabled that option.

~Edit~   Here's mine with it turned off and on.

Shiny water on:



Shiny water off:

When my friend gave me his old computer when he got a new one, the water started doing this. I assumed it was cause i had to use older graphics drivers cause the newest ones weren't working and certain problems with some programs had to use a driver somewhat older than the one immmediately previous to the latest.

I've just lived with it, it's kind of annoying and distracting sometimes, but, whatever.

Unclicking shiny water doesn't help it any. :(
