I'm too cool to Post
9th June 2004
Hey pplz. Okay... here's the story. I bought a new computer along with a ATi 9600 XT graphic card. I had a chance to get Half-Life 2 on release, but I never knew what Half-Life was about so I decided to get HL. Installed it and everything. Everytime I play Half-Life, in certain areas (A few scenes in that looooong intro/1 section in "Office Complex"/and quite a few sections in "We've got Hostiles") the whole place will become a black and purple checkerboard pattern. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Or is it just because I'm running on Direct X 9.0? Can somebody please help me because it's really taking away the atmosphere.
