Flickering textures

[[ SOLUTION BELOW ]]

Hello! Bug report I'm afraid.

For the first 15 minutes or so everything is peachy, but then textures start flickering on update, as in these:

If I wildly swing my mouse around, it makes things visible. The order seems to be:

* mouse moves
* draw goes okay
* draw gets covered up

I've tried turning off shadows, and it persists across restarting the game and the computer.

Interestingly, it seems to change something outside the game. Quitting and starting it back up sees the problem appear immediately. Even while playing other games: entire objects will appear to be missing and occasionally flicker into existence before disappearing again. Restarting fixes that.

Any ideas?

Have you updated your graphic drivers to the latest version?
Does this also appear when you set the game to windowed mode?

First off from what I have played it looks like a very good game.

I am having the same problems with the flickering graphics, it happens in windowed mode as well. I updated my drivers about 2 months ago I will update again to see if its the same.

Hi Kektain,

did you try a driver update and did it solve the problem?

Yes, updating my drivers did fix it. I went from nVidia 191.07 (yeah I know) to 258.96, and after playing for quite a while the problem has not re-emerged.
