When playing the game, if I enable "Depth of Field" in Video Options, theres is like a shadow image around Lara and other objects when moving the camera, specially on the sky. I've tried lastest NVIDIA display drivers (84.21) and nothing...

When "Next Gen.." is enabled this doesn't happen !

A screenshot of the situation:

My Specs:

AMD Athlon64 3000+
MSI Geforce 6600GT
1024 MB Ram

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP

Yes. this is a limitation of your video card (only 128mb), I get that as well on my Radeon 9700.

Solution: upgrade video card. ;)

The idea of change the geforce is stupi things because the 6600 gt/6600 are much stronger than radeon 9700, the patch will fix it, i have the same problem but I don't care, this garbage only on the sky:) , and I doesn't noticed it on the first level, only on the second ;) I think we can wait for the patch

I get the same too, that's why I don't use it.

The idea of upgrading 6600GT is quite a silly one though, as it IS a decent budget graphics card. (Read: We shoudn't have to)

I don't even get that problem using Garrys Mod (http://gmod.garry.tv/) for HL2, let alone any other game besides this.. :rolleyes:

I have found the 8X.XX series of drivers to be very buggy with the 6600GT AGP.
Try using version 79.11 beta. Fixed the Depth of Field for me. Also fixes a number of issues with other games.

You can download the driver from here........

Hope this helps you out?

I've seen the same problem with my 6600GT; it's as though the background has been drawn "foggy" but when an object moves in front the uncovered region is drawn "clear", i.e. a different colour. It looks funnier when a bird flies across the sky leaving behind a trail of wing-shaped regions!

Other problems include vines having a "foggy" tube around them

and Lara's legs having enlarged wobbly bits around them when the water in the background is rippling.

It's a shame that these problems spoil the enjoyment of otherwise-wonderful graphics.
