View Full Version : Graphics glitch in a while?
05-02-2010, 04:43 PM
It comes and goes. Random walls of different textures appear in strange places. All appeared walls are walk-through-able.
They don't seem to come in any order or pattern (for example it doesn't work like I do "A" and it happenes.)
It happenes around every 30 mins.
What is this?!?

Do you see them in the middle of matches or just wandering around the dome. If your in matches, these walls are the robotic's forcewall, which is a flat peice of cover they can deploy as in offhand (comes in 4 various sizes, and is team colored) All they do it block shots, but you can still walk through them.
Anything, and i suggest a reinstall, because you may have a bad file.

@UltimateGrr: It would be absolutely hilarious if the issue he is describing is force walls and he had no idea what they were.
@deanli21098: Pictures tell a different story if you see this again take a screen shot (F9) and look in your C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Common\global agenda live\tggame\ScreenShots folder for the picture you just took. Upload it to Photobucket (http://photobucket.com/) or Image shack (http://imageshack.us/) then post the image in here so we can see what you are talking about.
If you are able to walk through these walls to give yourself an advantage in game (and they are not force walls) then it's a bug and needs to be reported so any detailed info you can provide is invaluable.

it sounds a bit like what i get when alt tabbing in a mission loading screen (something you should actualy never do). alt tabbing again sometimes fixes it. or i just run a bit cause only the area close to spawn seems affected.

I found something new: GlobalAgenda (the process) uses 1,000,000 kb ram!
This is rediculous.

those random walls of textures are called artifacts. it's hard to pinpoint what exactly is causing them, but it could be grapihcs drivers, it could be overheating graphics card, or many other things. But it IS pretty much always graphics card related

Got the images.
Not glitched image
Oh yeah, no random walls of texture here, but things are still dissapearing.

So either a bad install, or your computer is over heating. Try taking side panel off, and blowing the dust out of the case. If you have one of those air duster bottles, those work best, but you can also use those lungs of yours (just try not to breathe in too much dust). Remember to blow out the fan covers in the case to help the air flow. The 30 min mark sounds like an over heat.
The second thing to do is to go to your video card maker's web site, and download the latest driver set for the card. This take about 2-3 mins or so on a 200KBS connection, and takes about another 2 mins or so to install. The screen will flash a bit and you'll probably have to restart the computer when it's finished. The reason is that sometimes little bugs crop into the driver and interfere with the GPU fan turning on at the right times, or that prevent it from throttling up to where it needs to be.
Try both steps, and lets see what happens.

Are you also having these issues in other games you are playing? Can you also send us in a DxDiag. To do this you can...
Make sure you follow the steps below to see if you can get it to upload once the file is created.
If you are having issues getting the file to upload
"Save All Information.." By default the "Save as Type" under the file name will be set to "Text File". Select the drop down and select "Xml File" to save the file as XML. You can name the file whatever you like, so long as you choose to save as type XML. Be sure to note where on your harddrive the file saves.
A lot of people make the mistake of just naming the file with a ".XML" extension but leaving the Save as Type as "Text File (*.txt)". Be sure to change the file type to "XML File (*.xml) in the "Save All Information" dialogue.

Here's the dxdiag, sorry for the wait.

Will the SandStorm patch be free?
(This may be a stupid question, but generally expansion packs are
05-05-2010, 07:26 AM
Being a content patch, it is free. There is no announced expansion pack to GA, so everything will be free as it comes out the pipe. The main thing is that most of it will be for the subscriber base exclusively, while non-subs will be seeing less content in the form of maps, but anything a subber can use that influences gameplay beyond the cosmetic is something everyone can get.

Well? Any way to fix this?
05-08-2010, 04:56 AM
I can acually SEE through walls with this!
This does give me an advantage, I suppose.
I've just lowered the graphics all the way down, and cleaned the fan with a clean paintbrush (My dad, Ruo Li, is an artist so we have plenty of those), and I think the rate went down. My specs enough for the game, so why does this happen?

Can someone PLEASE help me out here?
05-10-2010, 11:58 AM
I think you might want to update the drivers to your Graphics Card. This should help the issue, if not please let us know and we will go from there.

YES! THAT WORKED! IF I COULD KISS YOU I WOULD! (Okay, maybe not.)
