    when i first started playing GTA VC everything ran smoothly up until now.
    does anyone no why my GTA VC graphics have totally become fucked! up. totally.! its weird.

    keep reading...

    normal


    the weird thing is i can turn the graphics back to normal by using CTRL-ALT-DELETE and by returning back to my desktop..and then back into the game.. this 'resets' the game back to normal..but after a few moments it turns back to glitchy



    this only happens on this game

    plz help

    I think your videocard is experiancing "clipping." Either it's being overworked, or it's overclocked.

    If it's too overclocked, the chip can overheat, and cause your graphics to fracture like that.

    Am I right?

    im not sure... thats why im asking for help. its sounds as if your on the right track. so how do i fix it?

    it (the gay graphics) goes like this as i progress to certain places and once it starts it doesnt matter where i am.... its only a matter of when. (30 secs most)

    think your videocard is experiancing "clipping."
    can i stop this?

    he's posting here cuz everyone's telling him it's a vd card prob. no prob man. i got the same card. apparantly no probs here. i keep my card nice and cool. i got like 7 fans in my comp!
    now, let's c. from up screenshots, it's mostlikely that ur vd card is overheating. happened to my friend's computer. to check, easiest way is to open the case, and gently put ur finger on the heatsink of the gpu. if it's a bit burning, or let's say 35-40 deg' C, it's fine. if higher, it should be fine. if higher than 50 or 55, u might have some probs. turn off ur comp, and leave it off for a while. like 1 nite. with the case open and keep it cool by opening all the windows. try it again

    if same, actually, do this first! go into ur vd card settings, and make sure it's not oced. and switch all the settings to default. then try it again. ur game is fine, most likely overheating. try those, and see wat u get.

    u don't have to leave it open for a nite, just blow some air, and let it cool off for a few minutes
