I hope you can help me... I was playing AOW last night when I recognized strange... well... flashes around some of my stations and ships. I haven't seen anything like this before so I'm quite confused. I suppose it has nothing to do with the game itself, probably wrong graphics settings - but I've tried everything. Has anybody seen something like this before? It looks like this... http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1783/problemvq8.png Please help - I'm totally confused. Terra_Inc

That looks like a shield bubble to me - It could just be a part of the model, a mesh area textured to be semi-transparent. I know I've done it before, and probably will again.

Well it's not like a shield bubble, there are just random flashes everywhere around the station/ship. They are not visible in the viewer.

Does the station you've pointed out have its shields down? Or is it selected? There's a torpedo in the corner-- is it under attack? It's hard to tell what the problem is until we know what it's not, and the screen capture is just a little shy on detail.

:cool:

Well it has nothing to do with shields. Is has nothing to do with the model. It's simply those strange flashes around and on the ship/station. They're not like a shield hit or something, they move and change very quick. I've noticed them in other old games too - it has to do with the graphics settings, probably with the 3d stuff but I can't find out what is wrong. Terra_Inc

OK, forget about it. It has nothing to do with A2, my graphics card doesn't like me any more. I'll have to buy a new one.
