Ok, try this again - in the right place this time... :mad2:

So, I've tried my best to read through these forums to see if anyone else has posted about this, but I haven't found one to match what I'm going thru.

Firstly, the whole game screen, all the time, has these little white glitch pixels all over it, over everything. But I could live with that. The REAL issue starts after game has been running for a little bit, a minute or two. Often starts after I hit a checkpoint. Then I get these distorted "lines" of stretched, blinkin, textures from all over the place, including Lara herself. Kinda hard to explain, so here's a couple screenshots.

Is anyone else having this problem, is it with the game or is my graphics card on its last leg or something?

Any thoughts? :)

Stuff like this usually happens if you overclock your card too much, or if it gets too hot at normal clocks.

What graphics card do you have, anyway? And check it's fan, maybe it's clogged with dust...

np: Boy Robot - The Last Dance (Glamorizing Corporate Lifestyle)

It's an Ati Radeon X1950 Pro. It's not been overclocked at all, and it is fairly new. Couple of months or so. It's new enough that it *shouldn't* be failing... but it's not a perfect world. :hmm:

It looks like your video card is artifacting.

Usually happens when a card gets too hot, if its new then send it back.
