All ships, asteroids, etc. on the map replaced with bright green light.

Postby Rhogan » 11 March 2016, 15:57

Just as the title says. I go to play my first game, and I get the attached image. I play on a lower end system on the lowest settings, so I imagine this could be related to a hardware issue on my end? Is there any immediate fix to this?

Hi Rhogan,

Are your graphics drivers up to date ?

My drivers are indeed up to date. My processor and graphics specs are as follows..

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.20 GHz
Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000

I am well aware my specs are very much on the low end graphics wise, so I imagine it might come down to a hardware issue.

How to get rid of the Green light blobs replacing ships, asteroids etc
Hi together,

First of all, cudos and thanks for developing such a nice working and looking game, you do the tabletop its proper honor.

Have the problem that your system meets the minimum requirements, yet ingame all ships, asteroids and other map objects are replaced with weird green light blobs? ( did, due to bloody "Switchable Graphics" )

Here is a workaround:

You can actually force the game engine to use DirectX 9 instead of your usual DirectX Version, which in turn will repesent the models and object properly.

Go to the file where the exec of Battefleet Gothic Armada is located:
(For example: Programs -> steam -> ateam apps -> battlefleet Gothic)

Create a shortcut from the executable then go into properties of the Shortcut:
In the Target prompt line, go untill the very end of the text and add the command -dx9 to it, save and run the game from the shortcut.

The Game starts then using DirectX 9 and works fine

Mind you, you are doing this at your own risk and I take no responsability whatsoever for any damage etc.

have a nice day and purge those heretics out of the void,
Feuerteufel
