Distorted Characters

[Post New]by lnesh on May 13, 09 8:20 PM
Hi...although the background looks great, the characters are not defined and look like rock people. Any idea on how to fix?

I am having the same problem EXACTLY. I've been all over the internet looking for a solution with no results. I purchased the game because the graphics were impressive. It's frustrating that after purchasing and installing the game, the characters look like they weren't finished.
Could this have something to do with Direct X that seemed to automatically install or update (not sure which) during the game installation?

I don't think so because Direct X always installs during install of these complex games. Maybe someone from Tech Support will have the answer.

Well, I've updated Direct X...uninstalled the game...updated registery using Registry Mechanic...restarted my PC...reinstalled the game from scratch...characters are STILL distorted. I've emailed Tech Support. Maybe they have some ideas.

Mine aren't rock people. The first part with the movie plays fine and looks ok.

the menu page looks ok. When I start a game the bar looks ok, but the characters are jagged and look all cut up.

Right...are their faces dark and it's as if you can see their frames...almost as though they haven't been finished? Odd when the backgrounds are fine.
I also noted that the faces in the dialog boxes are dark and unfinished looking.

I had the same problem and just riased my resolution in my computer settings to 1280 x 1024.
Just right click your mouse on you desktop, go to properties, then settings, and change screen resolution.

I tried changing my screen resolution and it didn't help with the game.

Update...I contacted Tech Support. They checked my computer and it turns out that my driver needed to be updated. They sent me the download and now everything works perfectly! :-)

It depends wether or not you have a dedicated video driver (on the mother board) or a separate card. I have NVIDIA GS 8800 & I went to their site. Clicked on downloads & looked for driver updates. If you have a dedicated machine (laptop, Dell, etc.) try going to their site & look for driver updates. They typically allow you to save the download & then you just dbl clk to run & install.
