Artifacts in DirectX

Post by ShamHyper »

Hello, I ran into a problem in the game on version 1.1.76. During the game (on Directx), the screen can split a black "artifact" for a fraction of a second. The problem goes away when OpenGL is enabled. I'm not going to play on OGL, because, as I understand it, there is no support for fullscreen windowed, and this is critical on my monitor (the reversal on the application is sooooooo long).

I have not entered the game since the spring of 2022, since that time nothing has changed in the configuration of my PC, the operating system has not changed, and so on. I tried to roll back to 1.0.0 - there is no problem on Directx.

Logs attached

"Use the presentation model" (the name of the setting is translated through a translator, I do not know how it will be in English) - made these "black screen cuts" much rarer. Can you explain what this option does? What else could my problem be related to?

UPD, didn't say before. I turned off this option (which I mentioned above). But now the image has become "jerky" in addition to the black stripes..

Okay, thanks, I read it. But how will this help in solving my problem? Do you have any ideas, or is this a bug on the part of the developers?

Either the software around rendering is corrupt (reinstall the operating system) or the hardware is broken (try a different GPU)

Sadly I don’t have any other advice or help. I have never been able to reproduce any graphical issues on any of my computers over the years.

Why should I reinstall drivers/OS/etc - if the problem is absent in older versions of factorio? I NEVER have any artifacts in other games

Because other people are not having this problem on any version of the game. So the issue has to be an issue with your machine.

Older versions of the game use older versions of direct X.
