(http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/romanemp/problem2.jpg) Ok, so I've had my game for about 4 days (this being the 4th) and it ran absolutely great... untill now. I opened up the game today and after playing for about 2 minutes, the screen started sporadically flashing all over. The screenshot above just displays one little part of it--really hard to screenshot it because it happens so fast. The spots only show up for about 1 second, and then disappear (but it happens in about 10 differant places at one and keeps randomly coming up). Looks like its like it's smudging the graphics when froze in a screenshot, but its super annoying and appears to be flashes when playing. It only happens when in the normal traditional view (like in the screenshot). Not when in the world view. It still happens when talking to leaders and in the city-screen view also though. I don't think its an artifact. I run my computer 24/7 (only time it goes off is when the power goes out ). Heres my system specs: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra Pentium 4 CPU 3.40GHz 3.42GHz, 2.00GB of RAM Windows XP Professional And I updated my drivers to the latest (81.85 -had to cause the game wouldnt start ) I would really appreciate any help-its really annoying and I'm not gonna play the game till i get it fixed!
