This is a call for the developers. But first an introduction: There is a bug with nvidia optimus technology on windows 10. It's pretty well documented and reported and pretty old. The details, along with investigation and a guide made by me can be found here: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1008527/geforce-mobile-gpus/-guide-diagonal-screen-tearing-problems-with-optimus-nvidias-control-panel-not-working-like-it-should-need-a-fix-get-in-here/ In short, most unity games, and most games running with a Dx9 renderer, when played on a laptop with an nvidia card and windows 10 will get an awful diagonal screan tear. Yup, DIAGONAL. The easiest workaround is forcing the games to use dx11. Just try it yourself! Fire up Pillars of Eternity with vsync on (vsync have nothing to do with the bug, but deactivating it will make it pretty damn difficult to see without a trained eye... That and the tradicional horizontal tear will apear ). You will se that tear whenever you move, scroll the map or certain effects fire. Now force the game to use Dx11. BAM problem solved. Now try the same with Tyranny. The tearing is worse. Force Dx11: A pink screen. Let me also use this thread to ask: Why wasn't Dx11 implemented in Tyranny? It's a later game made by the same people and engine. What happened? Now the point of this thread should be pretty obvious! Will Deadfire come with a Dx11 option? If not, could you please reconsider? My laptop would be the best device to play the game because of it's screen, and also because of my lifestyle. (I say this before the inevitable "why are you gaming on a laptop anyway?" posts start to appear) Loving the advances of the game by the way! Great work <3
Hello, It seems that i have some weird glitches with my game - but with some specific steps completed. I'll break them down : Glitches Seems that if you enter the cinema, take a while ( for example the first time you stay and break all chairs ) then exit - and pass in front of the cashier - the graphics turn to weird glitches ( as i saw posted before ). But this seems to be the only way to trigger this - and it's every time ( 3rd play-through ). And i haven't encounter this anywhere else. Only way to 'fix' this is either loading an area, or restarting the game Flickering Begin while you're in a cutscene - pause - and alt-tab out of the game - do something ( not just alt-tab lightning speed Bruce Lee attack xD ) Return to the game and unpause it ; and you'll notice that characters begin to flicker - even completely disappear Again, reloading area/game seems to fix this Crash - rare / random Random - rare - crash issue after the defects above have occurred, but i think that multiple alt-tabs (in a normal way) do break the game. This happened to me , twice, once after i hit Exit Game ( crashing on desktop ) and other in-game. MINOR (more a question) I've noticed that Windows 7 schema turns to basic every time i run this game. And i think this might be the cause of some of the issues Is this intended or does it link with system config ? Here are my specs - laptop ! : CPU : Intel i3-2330M RAM : 6GB DDR3 GPU : Nvidia Optimus 540M - 2GB ( latest drivers ; also running on this and not Intel ) OS : Windows 7 x64 ( fully updated ) Play resolutions : 1366x768 ; 1920x1080 I ain't bothered by some of the above, this is more of a heads-up thing. Also wondering if crashing/windows scheme is from my end or if it occurs to most people. Have a great day! Cheers, Z
