[0.8a RC19] Graphics Flickering
« on: April 21, 2017, 07:43:54 PM »

Could be some quirk specific to my machine, but thought I'd drop a quick report on some odd flickering I've seen since playing with 0.8 and see if anyone else has noticed it.  I believe it's present rarely in any situation, but it's especially noticeable on a market screen where the planetary background and various items in inventory will stutter very briefly.  A little distracting but perfectly playable.

Using most recent drivers on a GTX 950 with Java 7 64-bit replaced into the install folder and non-fullscreen set to monitor native resolution.

I've seen this reported before, yeah. Could you give it a try with fullscreen mode turned on to see if that makes a difference?

I have the same issue in fact but it always occurs in combat for me, not on the campaign map or trade screen. A flash or streak of green or white suddenly appearing. I think changing to Fullscreen helped a bit, but it still occurs every now and then.

Since there are few graphical settings available I'm not sure how to troubleshoot it. Could it be a conflict from a leftover graphical mod like ShaderLib? It sounds extremelt unlikely though.

In a Borderless window, and the game flickers for me at every stage - combat, campaign, text blobs, stations, even paused.  It's pretty serious, every dozen seconds or so the screen blinks, a white horizontal or vertical line of white pixels flickers, or a white rectangle of various sized flashes somewhere.  Fullscreen appears to fix *most* of it, but not all of it.  I still get the occasional flicker.

For the moment, I guess I can stick with fullscreen to mostly fix the issue.

Seems about the same for me in either mode.  I get the random vertical lines too that just blip in and out almost before you saw they were there.  Some horizontal line distortion on the system map if you just let it sit there and stare.
