Corrupted graphics (flashing bluish polygons all over the screen) in stable build 0.54.103957
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The same graphic corruption that occurred in A2 randomly with my old rig seems to be back in A3. {F18889}


Legacy ID
HW Issues
Steps To Reproduce

Occurs randomly during normal gameplay. I haven't found any factors that would trigger the corruption in A3.

Additional Information

The corruption gets worse with time. Flushing video memory (eg. with FLUSH command) doesn't help, unlike in A2. Overheating is not likely to cause it, because the temperatures of components are not high when playing A3 (GPU less than 50°C, CPU less than 60°C, all other components less than 50°C)

Video of the corrupted graphics:

In Arma 2, the flashing polygons appeared often when the components were stressed more than normally. Especially driving through Elektro and getting close to the FPS killer, enterable school building located next to the Elektro-Mogilevka road junction seemed to trigger the corruption often with my old rig. Some users got it often when they flew over or went into Chernogorsk. Here's the typical flashing polygons in A2 recorded by another user:

I don't think that overheating would cause the corruption, because the temperature of components is not high at all when I'm playing A3. (GPU less than 50°C, CPU less than 60°C).
