My Geography is poor but....
« on: February 15, 2009, 05:16:24 am »

I'm pretty sure the map of the world doesn't look like this.

Just installed (then reinstalled - then reinstalled - then re-downloaded - then reinstalled) V 2..2..1
  and I'm getting this garbled geoscape image every time - rotating the map or switching between 2D and 3D makes no difference.

Was previously running  V2.2 with no major probs

Running it on a fairly ancient old dell laptop running XP sp3 and whatever the onboard graphics controller for that is (intel 915gm/gms 910gml I think)

Downloaded 2.2.1 from here:

Intel graphics card. Known to cause issues.

Try enabling texture compression (if not enabled yet).

Figured out how to stop the problem

Basically there seems to be a conflict between 2.2 and 2.2.1

If I play 2.2.1 after playing 2.2 without restarting my pooter I get the same glitch on both versions - so provided I either restart when I switch between versuions - or just stop playing 2.2 its not an issue
