Hi there, Im currently very early on in the game and Ive run into a strange issue that is basically stopping me getting any further, Ive got to the check point in Bolivia just after you cross the bridge that the helicopter destroys part of. Up until now the game had ran fine at 1280x1024, with everything enabled except next-gen.

At this point i can run round the area with all the guys shooting at me etc. and it will be ok but as soon as I goto fire a weapon the screen goes weird (see screenshots below) the game seems to be still responding as i can access my flashlight switch weapons and the hud still appears etc. but the graphics just stop, I can also access the menu and exit the game and it goes back to the main menu with no problems also the music continues to play in the background.

At first I thought it was a hardware problem with my graphics card but seems strange that it runs ok until I try to fire, running around jumping etc causes no problems.

My system specs are as follows
Athlon 64 3000
1Gb DDR400
Geforce 6600GT
Abit Nforce 4 PCI-E board.
All latest drivers installed on a clean install of Windows XP SP2 fully updated.

As you can see sometimes the screen just goes greys and others the majority of it goes black yet menus etc. still respond fine, any help would be much appreciated as I really want to continue playing.

Thanks

I also got weird stuff there, but I thought they were artifacts due to the overclocking of my video card, but didn't got that type of glitches, mine were like big artifacts....

I have noticed this in other games and 3dMark06, try to turn mipmap to quality in your video card's settings.

Ive tried pretty much everything I can think of now lowered the gfx settings, resolution, changed the driver quality settings up and down, disabled effects in the game and nothing works, all is fine until i try to shoot at someone or something which is probably the strangest part about it.
