Syberia 1 Graphic Error

Postby papajo » Tue 28 Apr 2009 13:06

Hello everybody,

Yesterday i installed Syberia 1 for the first time. I started a new game, everything was ok (looks like a great game!) but then i noticed the following strange thing: every once in a while there was something appearing and disappearing very quickly (split second), maybe an object, i can't really tell...This was happening irregularly and not in the same spots in the screen. One thing is sure: it's very annoying and it takes all the fun of the game... :evil:

My PC is not that old (i bought it a year ago), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, NVidia 8600GT, Windows XP SP3. I also have installed the Syberia SP3.

I saw another topic in the forum ("Syberia 1 Graffic Errors" by RookieOne) but it didn't really helped. In fact, it put me in thoughts about my graphic card, as those guys had similar ones with me...

Anyway, i tried lowering the performance of my graphic card, running in combatibility mode (not only for Windows 2000), lowering the quality and turning off anti-aliasing from inside the game, even uninstalling-cleaning-defragmenting-reinstalling and doing all these above again, but nothing...

I don't know what else to do to play this game, so any help would be more than appreciated.

PS1: That's the only adventure game has even been installed on my PC...
PS2: I guess i'll roll back to FPS-RPG-RTSs...
PS3: "Father...I want to believe, but the Devil :twisted: doesn't leave me..." :nono:

Frankly papajo, i believe the problem is not with your pc...
I think the problem is with your video card NVidia 8600GT...
From my own experience, i've already seen (on other hard gamers forums) that NVidia 8600GT could causes a lot of problems to gamers...

Try to play the game on another computer if you can... i must recognize it's not a very good solution because changing its video card is very expensive...
