[Dev Action Needed] - Graphical Bug: Weird Texture Overlay

  • I was playing normally for a few dozen rounds in multiplayer, then halfway through a match, these strange textures began appearing on my screen. The textures seem to occasionally change. Opacity is maybe 25%, so I can slightly see through them.

    I tried alt-tabbing in and out, restarting the client, switching graphical settings, entering different servers, using offline mode, but nothing worked. The texture is visible on the main screen, then disappears during the loading screen, and returns once I’ve actually loaded into the match.

    Using the latest AMD graphics driver for my HD 3870.

    Edit: I can provide another Launch.log, if it would help.

  • I tried something else that resolved the issue and points to the source of it. After reinstalling the entire game and removing the Chivalry settings folder in My Docs/My Games, I reloaded the game and changed ALL the settings to medium or disabled from the default:


    The problem returned, as you can see in the first image. Then I removed the settings again, restarted Chivalry, and individually changed each setting. Nothing caused the bug except switching Texture Quality. After switching it a 2nd time, the bug vanishes. Switch it a 3rd time, the bug returns. 4th time, vanishes. Basically, alternating back and forth between Texture Quality causes the graphical bug to appear and disappear, REGARDLESS of the exact Texture Quality setting.

    So, I can play just fine now, but if I want to change Texture Quality, I have to do so twice.

    EDIT: Okay, it’s NOT restricted to Texture Quality. Alternating between Particle/Character/Foliage quality also causes the bug.

  • Thank you for reporting this - very good description and specific! 8-)
