View Full Version : Flashing Screen
I've been playing CFS3 since Christmas with no problem. I installed the patch and everything still worked fine. Last week, I upgraded my graphics card from a Geforce 3 to a Geforce 4 Ti4600. Now, the screen will flash black and a blueish color for about 10-20 sec and then it will stop. It does this when I change views when flying and at the main screen. I have a flatscreen monitor, could this be the problem? Does anyone know how to fix this?

LAST EDITED ON Feb-20-03 AT 09:55AM (EST)[p]Is it in the form of lines across the screen?
Have a look at a screenshot I put in a post a few weeks back.
If it is similar to that, you have to disable anti-aliasing in the Nvidia control panel to fix it.
If it's not like that, put on a screenshot to see if anyone can help.

I had the same exact problem. I have to turn off anti-aliasing and the v-sync on my video card.
I have a GeForce 4 ti-4200.

I too had that, and many other problems.
Athlon XP 1600
I finally got fed up with everything and decided to try 42.86 drivers - definitely "beta"...
That was yesterday and this sim is SMOKING right now - now I'm just crossing my fingers that it'll stay that way...
This is the sixth (no typo) set of drivers I've tried and the only ones that CFS3 has run properly with. On my rig the 41.09's were actually the worst ones - even the old 30.82's worked better over here.
Ya might try them out - they're "beta" drivers so do so at your own risk though.
Thanks everyone. I turned off anti-aliasing and it works fine now. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.
I'll try out those new drivers, maybe I can get better performance.

I have now tried most drivers, and still can't cure the problem unless I disable A/L. The only setting it cures it on is 4xS A/L which I have, but it causes lots of stutters and sound glitches.
If I could cure those, it would be nice as it looks really good in 4Xs Anti-aliasing. Maybe a few tweaks in the right places in the CFS config might help.
