Hi Everyone,

Please see attached image. I'm playing on Win10. Two months ago, my game started crashing no matter what I did after working perfectly fine. I finally got it to where it's not crashing immediately, and I ran into this flickering pixelated glitch. The glitch moves with the arrow and sometimes a sim or object looks transparent.
I also downloaded the Radeon graphics card from here and made sure it was in the database. However, after booting the game up a few times, my config file now shows as GeForce 7800 GTX.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Did you try the new Graphics Rule Maker?

Doesn't "my config file now shows as GeForce 7800 GTX." mean they tried the DVX-or-whatever-that-is fix?
You prolly want to take that out. Your Graphics card may not be able to handle it?

Yes, I did but it didn't help.

@CatherineTCJD - you're right, l added dvdx to stop the pink flashing. However, the graphic glitch occurs even without it.
