[Tech Help] Graphical Glitches in SA Client Help

Discussion in 'UO Enhanced Client Discussion' started by Darlan, Sep 14, 2009.

    I have graphical glitches in the client . They destroy not only the landscape but also the UI and several text. Another user saw the picture I will post here now and told me, he never has somethib like this in the client, so i guess its no bug. A driver update for my graphic and a driectx update did not help. Has anyone the same glitches and/or what can I do?

    In the picture i marked the glitches with circles.

    PS: glitches are not always on the same position

    I have seen things like that, almost.

    Mostly it is just a single tile, such as a teleporter.

    Mostly it is after a patch or something and I have always written it off as just a graphic update. As it tends to go away if I log out and log back in.

    *Shrug* So I am not sure why your getting it. I could generalize and suggest that for what ever the reason, the tile set that is missing, has a bad identifier on it and can not be found in the art work file.

    Not that I think it will help, but you may try to increase/decrease the Frame Rate in the Options menu.

    Not really, I will think on it but it gets down to why those tile sets are not being identified correctly.

    There can be two reasons:

    The tile sets are misidentified

    OR

    The system redraw is ... well for some unknown reason, skipping over them.

    I suppose (as in don't go out and buy a video card) that if you had access to another Video Card or an onboard video chip, you could try swapping them and see if the problem persisted. That would pretty much limit where the problem is.

    If some one knew the file name for the tiles/objects what ever, then deleting it and forcing the patcher to download a fresh copy may also be useful.

    Dont think it is related to special files, because the appearance of the glitches change all the time, they are not persistant

    After a reinstall the glitches inside of houses seem to be gone, but the black glitches in the landscape are still occuring. Why is there only one poster in the whole uostratics who can try to help me about this? *wondering*

    I see the occasional missing tile when wandering around outside. They can be Black or they can be water when close to water.

    I have also see what appears to be cave floor tiles when on my boat they don't act like obstacles, they identify as water etc.

    Glitches inside houses are back.

    This is frustrating .

    Problem still unsolved. Stratics is the biggest uo forum in the world and no one can help me?
