Graphical Anomalies and video driver crashes in CM 10.94

Postby zapr » 22 Nov 2010, 09:30

I'm trying to play CM 10.94 but when I start it in EP0 at the very beginning of the game(Point Insertion) I get really bad graphical anomalies (character textures streaking across the screen and messed up colors) and then the video card driver crashes then Windows 7 has to recover from it. I tried installing the mod several different ways including turning off UAC in Windows 7 and turning off my Anti-Virus which is Microsoft Security Essentials. Here are my system specs:


Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Core 2 Duo E8400@3.4GHz
4GB RAM
GeForce GTX 260 core 216 with latest driver (260.99) - not overclocked
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L motherboard

I tried older video drivers and get the same results. I updated my Visual C++ and my directX and no dice. I disabled everything in the configurator and the character pimper and the same thing happens. I'm at wits end here. All of my other games including vanilla HL2 run just fine so I know my video card isn't broken. If someone has a solution please post it. Thanks in advance.

I've noticed a lot of people ahve been having issues after they updated to 10.94. You're best bet would be to uninstall then install 10.9 without updating to 10.94. (Sorry, I know it takes a while, maybe do something productive while its installing :/)

I tried that just now and I now I get a Visual C++ runtime error or something like that before it even loads the menu screen. Is there a fix for this?

Okay I managed to get it to start but I still have the same problems with character textures streaking across the screen and game crashes. I may just wait until the next patch and hope that clears it up. Does anyone know when the next patch will be released?
