This is a reoccuring problem that happens every now and then. What seems to happen is, all vehicles "vanish" on my screen and radar. Im completely unable to see them in game, and they don't appear on my radar. Friendly infantry however, remains normal. Also, Im unable to SEE any enemy unit(infantry or vehicle) on my screen. They too, become "invisible".

This is often confusing, because i'll watch one of my teammates having a shoot-out with someone, or a knife-fight---yet nothing is there. Suddenly they get a kill, and a corpse appears on my screen. The enemy they had been fighting just 10 paces in front of me, was completely invisible on my screen.

Here's the best screenshot I could get of a friend standing on a tank which to me is invisible. You'll notice its not on my radar either. According to him there is also a wesp beside it. The only way to fix this bug i've found is to just "die". Then things return to normal. Any suggestions about what the heck is causing this??

I have the same bug,with the exception that when all the vehicles turn invisible so do the other players..i can't tell how anoying this is..seeing someone fire at something walking toward that fire..and suddenly being killed by a tank that was there all along..just because it turn invisble.. They only way i can see players then is by switching my view..mostly that works and i can play further..but the problem still haunts me back 4 a 5 times a week..

i get it too sometimes and have just accepted some really embarressing deaths because of it as part of the game. switching through the camera views can help, but as mentioned (an inevitable) death usually sorts it out again. is only a real big problem for me if i get destroyed in a good tank or an enemy tank i was about to take on disappears and then kills me leading to flag losses or something. good luck!

I used to have this problem too ,its the actual changing views that causes it ,it can be fixed by cycling through the view again until things re-appear ,to reduce the number of times this happens just try to cut down using different views when its not necessary AFAIK there is no known permanent fix for it :uhm:

I have the same problem, especially at Rheinuebung. Invisible battleships are not funny. I see them in all third person views, but not in the first person view.

this is the reason there is no 3rd person view for infantry in vanilla.

But it seems so strange that this can happen to only a small part of the players, there is 2 ppl in my clan of 16 that have this problem....there must be a way to fix it

Hm, i have never seen it but as i can see of the picture ,its quite possibly it isnt one of the best graphicscard in the computor belonging to evil pumpkin, is it so for everyone ,who maybe have the same card? Maybe a too weak card and /or old drivers?

It's been happening since 0.65 I noticed. Cycling thru views is the culprit. A quick fix when you do notice it's happened is to push something like "F9" that usually "refreshes" the screen your usually on. I'm sure it's a wide spread bug.. just not everyone out there is constantly changing views to make sure nobody is sneaking up on you.. or getting a better sight angle.. It happened to a friend of mine who was piloting the Bismarck.. told him the Hood was up ahead and to his left... putting him into perfect position to ambush the ship.. well next thing I know the Bismarck is sinking and he tells me he never saw the Hood.. So it can be quite frustrating.. And it isnt just limited to infantry view changes..
