View Full Version : Video problems with new update, Purple and White checkerboard

14th June 2006, 15:05
After I installed the update yesterday, anytime I am hit with a grenade as IRIS or by the health gun thing while hidden, my screen goes to nothing but a giant purple and white checkerboard and I can't see anything until the effect goes away. This happens to be really annoying and makes the game unplayable for the duration of the effect. I am running dual core amd, and 2 Geforce 7900 GT in SLI. I am using driver 6.14.0010.9128 and I am running wide screen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, this was caused if you only downloaded the mini update for B4, but not the entire thing. Look a few newsposts down on the main page and you'll find a link for the full B4 download.

Is its NOT moving at all? the checkerboard, or is it just a really bad blur, or is it more like a freeze frame... My buddy gets freeze frames and its really impossible..
