Graphical Glitch?

I’ve been experiencing this weird triangular-polygony foul up in many of my games for a few weeks. I really doubt it’s another work of art from the great wizards at Relic and it’s most possibly something to do with my gfx card. But here it is anyway – some caring and sharing wouldn’t hurt. This one is on McGechaen’s War.

Moving cursor to other parts of map removes problem. 'Shadow' becomes fixture of map.

What do you guys think? It happens on every map that I play and happens over 50% of the games I play. I’ve lost some games due to the glitch as I can’t see anything beneath the ‘shadow’. Actually it just occurred to me. FOG OF WAR is a better term to describe this weird ‘shadow’. It’s like the Iron Curtain operators pressed the wrong button and took a trip back to memory lane before the Iron Curtain became fully operational.

    Strange triangles and bizarrely stretched polys are a type of graphical artifacting and are often indicative of your graphics card going kaput. It may simply be overheating or there may be a problem with the GPU/VRAM. In either case, I’d probably start ramping up an RMA claim with either the retailer you got the video card from, or the manufacturer itself. It’s likely going to deteriorate further over time if you don’t get it replaced.

    First thing that comes to mind is overheating, then driver updates.

    Yikes! Gosh I guess it’s time for a new PC? That doesn’t look like the best comments from two regular readers at all!

    Its overheating or drivers conflicting with something. I’d try turning all overclocks off first, that fixed it for a friend of mine who had the same problem.

    furthermore you can try lowering the details and see if it happens again
