Graphics Problems

Post by Bobical » Mon Sep 07, 2009 1:26 pm

Hey there -- new to this game.

I totally love it already... so cool to be back in a land like Ultima 5!

However, I have a pretty severe graphics problem with this game (and only this game). At seemingly random times, the graphics glitch, causing vertical lines to appear all across the screen. The game then either crashes or reboots my computer (or both). It tends to do this more frequently if I alt-tab to another application.

I have a high end machine, latest NVIDIA drivers (geforce 9800xt), 64 bit Vista, most up to date patches. It really shouldn't be my machine's fault.

Do you have any suggestions as to what might be wrong? I have no problems playing any other game, including some pretty heavy duty stuff... this is the only one that is causing me problems.

Thanks for your help... and I look forward to playing this game often!

my win 7 64bit works fine for me, except for the sticky alt key!

do me a favour and try out the mouse client - it uses a newer allegro library and also a different way of drawing the screen.
