    OMG the sky is mad

    Hey guys, im just starting a thread to complain about, oh, um, what everyone else is complaining about. Glitches. What happens is: i could just be driving along, or boating, or flying, whatever, and pictures would start floating across the sky, like blue silhouettes of bridges and trees. And sods' law says im the only person with this problem so no-one else can tell me how to deal with it.

    if you don't know how to get your info for your computer click start go to run type in dxdiag and click ok and it should bring up what they call DirectX diagnostic Tool and it should list your ram (memory) your processor (CPU) to find your sound card look at the top and there should be a tab called sound click that and it should say your sound card. if you need anymore help post back.

    That being said you should also check the driver date for your video card by selecting Display, and on the right hand side, report back what the driver date says.

    here it is... direct x version 9.0c obviously... memory 1022 gig... nothing about CPU though. if its here, then god am i retarded. and mate, it doesn't matter if your graphics card is balls, the thing is we're both experiencing the same problem, thats what matters.

    p.s how do you take screenshots in-game?
    p.ss my sound card is soundMAX digital audio. I don't know whether this is good or rubbish all i know is that's what i got.

    Actually if you click the Save all information, and save the file to your desktop, and then open it and copy and paste that information in your next post it will help us figure out what is wrong.

    you want the whole thing? it's sodding massive, probably make three pages out of this just on this convo... or you could tell me how far down you wanted me to go with the copying and pasting. I'll send it then...

    Ironically you cut it off right before the section I was looking for. Both the Display Devices and sound section should be all that I need.

    Try this

    GO to Nvidia, and download the latest drivers they have there for your card. Go into the control panel and uninstalling the drivers for your card. Windows will want to restart, after the restart, run the file you downloaded.

    Uninstall and reinstall the game, and see if that clears things up.

  15. #15
    thanks mate. you're a real help. i'll notify if it helps.

  16. #16
    could you sort of name what that driver would be? here im downloading an Nvidia forceware 93.71... is that what i need?

  17. #17
    you got onboard sound i would recomend gettin a soundblaster pci card... onboard takes away from your ram.... but it will not cause the problem you are having...

    yea thats the new driver but honestly just because its new doesn't mean you HAVE to get it...some drivers work better for some games and other drivers will mess up games...its kinda weird...so i switch mine all the time...so download a couple try them out trail and error my friend.

  20. #20
    I don't exactly know myself. I haven't done any of those things so i'm yet to try them - they may not have worked for you, but thy could work for me.

  21. #21
    would uninstalling the drivers for the card come under "add and remove programs" or what?

    yea called NVIDIA DRIVERS or something like that...

  24. #24
    then once u uninstall it will ask you to restart your computer say yes and let it do that then go to your C:/ and go here C:\NVIDIA and delete the whole file and once its deleted empty your recycling bin then install the new drivers

    the lord of this thread returns with his new driver! all that shalt be dealt with now is the long boring process of uninstalling and installing Just Cause! while it does it i'll just go off and look at some pretty colours or something.
