No textures on models (PC Version)

Recommended Posts


Well I just got SA today, but the game doesn't look quite right:


user posted image


As you can see, everything seems to be okay except for the textureless character models which look like ghosts.


I've got an ATI Radeon 9600 XT with the latest drivers installed (Catalyst, DirectX 9.0c). I played around with the in-game video settings, but to no avail. Just to make sure I set the Mipmap Detail Level in the ATI Display Settings to High Quality, but that didn't change anything. The MIP mapping setting is greyed out once I start a game, i.e. I can only set it on/off when I restart SA.

Anybody else get this graphical glitch? Do I have to wait for a patch, or is there some known solution to make the textures appear? Thanks for your replies.

Wow. This is scary. I really don't have a clue, but I'm more and more scared, because I got a 9600XT TOO, and can't afford to buy a new one right now. What are your other system specs? Have you tried fooling around with ATI card settings?

Have you tried re-installing the game?. Some files might have got corrupted.


Does your card run other games well?


Try installing some other driver versions for the card, also re-install Dx9.0c, if necessary (Dx9.0c installer has been given with the game, right?)

ATI Cards just suck in general...


Every ATI card I've ever had has had graphical issues. Some that the average gamer might not even notice...


At this point, ATI is going to have to send me a card, free, to prove to me that their cards work before I'll ever buy another ATI product. Ever.


I mean, they claim all these preformance gains over nVidia, then you buy the card and realize there are red little bouncy lines all over the textures when you zoom right in... sh*t like that... Gimme a break...


ATI should stick to their target audience, MACINTOSH... Stop trying to make PC cards that don't work right...

Okay, I downgraded to Catalyst 4.3 and guess what, the game looks normal now ¬¬ I guess I'll have to determine the last functional driver by trial and error.


Thanks for your suggestions.

The best thing to do is to uninstall your video card drivers and then clean out the left over junk files with a program like "Driver Cleaner" to get rid of all the crap and then clean install the newest catalyst. It should work then.

ditch teh catalyst and download omegas drivers

Well as a 9600pro owner I hope it'll work fine - I guess I'll find out tomorrow ph34r.gif


I remember from VC all the daft problems that can happen, for example my Creative sound card gave me grief with the audio jamming up and stuttering. Switched to the grotty on board soundcard worked a treat.


As others have suggested try downgrading your cat. drivers, if you can't find a download use whatever was on the cd-rom that your card came with - it might help. Make sure you uninstall all the ATi drivers and apps before you downgrade.
