Hi,

I have noticed some odd flickering of tooltips windows across different parts of UI (main screen, inventory, etc).

Playing in 1920x1080 at 60 Hz, vsync is on.

 

 

Video to demonstrate: link (Aloth tooltip window is flickering)

 

 

Does anyone notice this too?

I have the same issue. My gpu is GTX 980 Ti, I have the latest drivers and I'm running Windows 10.

 

Pretty annoying issue since it appears all the time in different tooltips.

My gpu is AMD Radeon (Windows 10 with latest drivers).

 

This issue is also occurring on my Macbook Air (Intel gpu).

Same here (GeForce 980, but was present with my 770 too). Hard to troubleshoot intermittent problems, so my heart goes out to whomever gets this ticket :)

GTX 970 here and have noticed the same thing.  It's fairly spurrious, definitely not game breaking - but always makes me blink a few times..

 

I should also note that the nvidia drivers on this machine are up to date, v364.51 at the time of this writing, but I'm pretty sure I've noticed this visual glitch prior to the latest driver update..

Hey guys,

 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Fortunately we are already aware of the issue and have a bug in the system. 

 

Thanks a bunch!

It's still not fixed. Why does it take so long?

The real question is whether they plan to fix it someday. Looking at how it seems like they basically have only 1 person working on the patches now, seems unlikely.

As of 3.05 still seeing this issue.  I will note that the flickering tool tip only seems to be appearing at the moment on the last ability of the character icon to the furthest right on the ui.

I ran into this issue as well, basically anything in the top inventory row has this tool tip flicker.  Turning Vsync off just slows the rate of flicker for me.  When the flicker is slowed, it looks like it's caused by the UI having trouble deciding what height to make the tool tip popup window ( the bottom is fixed and the top flickers up and down causing the text in the window to flicker also due to vertical auto-spacing.  The closer to the top of the tool tip window the text is, the more flickering occurs because of the greater shifting due to the text auto-alignment in the window.

 

Switching the resolution to a mode with 60Hz refresh rate appears to eliminate the flicker, but I don't want to do this since the only option to run at my monitor's native resolution of 1920x1200 is @ 59 Hz.

 

I was able to get the specific incident of flickering to go away by applying a resolution that wasn't 1920x1200 @ 59Hz, then exiting the game, relaunching the game, then switching back to 1920x1200 @ 59Hz.  I haven't figured out if adding the -popupwindow argument to the launcher has any effect on the bug. We shall see if it shows up again.

The eye strain from this bug is killing me.  Does anyone have any other ideas on why this is happening or how to address it?  Changing resolutions has not worked.  It's kind of ruining the game for me.  I've come to terms with all the myriad combat bugs, but when I can't even bear to look at item tooltips I don't see how I can play this game.

That's an old bug, which is still here (v3.06).

If it helps: I've noticed that it is related to global font scale (from settings > graphics).

In my case I had to change it from 130% to 127%, and flickering is gone :)
