oohhh, that last part was interesting. just tried the latest, 169.04 drivers. still no luck with Silent Hunter 3. i tried turning settings on high. outside environment is perfect. inside is a hash of polygons. turn it all down, inside is perfect, outside is a hash of polygons, but less dense.
Brother's in Arms is working fine. not even a spot of trouble from that.
thanks for the tips on how to install the drivers. do you think i should reinstall/update my Motherboard chipset drivers? i'll try a 97. something or 98/99. something tomorrow.
just out of curiosity, Titan8990, have you ever seen any graphics stuff up like the ones i posted? i've seen then once, and that was when me and my friend were scripting some new vehicles for Battlefield Vietnam, and i think we stuffed up the script, probably aligned something wrong. and heaps of polygons, very similar to the ones projecting from the flack and deck cannon, then appeared from the tank. but once we deleted that tank, everything went back to normal.
which led me to think that these irregularities are caused by something being scripted wrong by the drivers, or processed wrong by the GPU. at least, that's what i guessed.
