Hello, "this is my friend, not me"
I recently bought a xfx Geforce 6600 AGP 256MB Card about 2 months
About a month ago i have been getting Texture Stretching in COD2 and GR:AW
Like, the textures Stretch Far out, and connect to eachother a lot... a bunch of Stretching, and some textures dont show at all...
but the weird thing is, is that its only doing this is COD2 and GR:AW, BUT not in Doom 3 and Prey,
What is going on? is it a Graphics Card problem? or a Driver issue? and in COD2 i can play for about 5 minutes and boom, it restarts..
This is a weird problem, Does any one have any good ideas as to what is happening?
To make all this simpler... COD2 and GR:AW = Texture stretching, ripping, random restarts, missing textures
Other games = Perfectly Fine...
maybe its Direct X games?
Sounds like a driver problem. Try updating your graphics card's drivers. Try enabling "Geometry instancing" and "Alternate pixel center." Your sound card may also cause system errors which force your computer to restart. What type of sound card do you have? Have you enabled EAX? If you have, try disabling it. If it doesn't help, try running CoD 2 Safe Mode. If you have tried all that and you still have problems, AGP version of 6600 GT may be the cause of the problems. I don't know what else you could try.
Drivers are fully updated to latest, How do i enable "Geometry instancing"? and "Alternate Pixel"?
Sound card is a Cmedia 8738, doesnt support EAX, just a low end 5.1 card.
Safe mode same thing
192837465, if when you are saying "Safe Mode Same Thing" that you don't know how to run CoD2 in safe mode, then here it is: Start All Programs Activision Call Of Duty 2 Call Of Duty 2 Multiplayer (Safe Mode) If you didn't mean that you don't know how to run CoD2 in Safe Mode, then I told you anyways.
No, i know how to run it in Safe mode, does the same thing, Texture stretching, like a tree leaf would stretch across the map to another tree leaf, and when you move your mouse a little bit the texture would attach to something else..
Could this be a Direct 3D issue? because all D3D games i play has the Texture Ripping and missing.. but all Open GL games, run fine..
I THINK this problem is caused by over accelerating the video card. with some games, if the acceleration is too high this happens, try using the nvidia tweaking utilities, or Power Strip or something to tone down the acceleration. This should help (don't forget to turn it back up when you play another game)
Go to your Nvidia control panel and look for options "Geometry Instancing" and "Alternate Pixel Center". This may solve your problems with textures. Your card doesn't support EAX, yes. But if EAX is enabled, then your computer may become unstable. Make sure EAX is disabled. Use Recommended system settings. Try running a game in safe mode and tell me if there is a problem. You have many options. There is always a resolution. Update your drivers. It is possible that AGP version of Nvidia 6600 is causing problems with Direct 3D. Update your drivers, restore all settings to default in your nvidia control panel. Restart your system and then run the game in safe mode and normal mode. Let me know if there is any improvement.
Well i searched through the Nvidia control Panel, and even went to the search bar thing, and it found nothing about "geometry instancing" and "Alternate Pixel Center"
Yes, I was afraid of that. Looks like Nvidia drivers don't have these options. Have you updated your drivers? Download new drivers from www.nvidia.com
Yeah they are as updated as can be sadly.. Sigh, maybe i have to rollback a couple drivers
