Flickering issues with grass/bushes

Question

TPhilipsIndustries

Hi everyone, I've been experiencing very bad flickering issues in areas with lots of grass/bushes. I've been searching for people who have experienced the same issues, but I haven't found anyone. I really hope it isn't something wrong with my console, as the issue usually only appears in grassy areas. It's a really distracting problem, especially in the desert areas of the game. Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

 

Here's a vid of my issues:

That's pretty weird, never had that happen myself.Sorry I can't help you man, Are you connected to the net, and does it happen with all your game saves? I'm sure you want a better answer, but I would delete and reinstall the game. keep your save games though and see if it fixes it.

Yeah, I've reinstalled the game twice to no avail. I usually play connected to the internet, and it's present in all my saves along with GTA online. Thanks for trying to help.

This is not gonna sound nice to you, but that looks like textbook example of GPU artifacts from a dying GPU. How long have you had the system?

I've had the system for about a year now. Crap, I was afraid of that. I thought that it wouldn't be a GPU issue because it only happened in GTA V.

I have the same problem! I have actually stopped playing it because the flickering grass annoys me so much, i have also been looking on the internet for a while trying to find a solution but you are the first person i have found that is having the same problem

Oh I'm glad to see I'm not alone. Have you been experiencing it anywhere else in the game? Also, are all your other games running fine? I really hope it's not a console issue, although I am going to contact sony for repairs just in case. My warranty is going to expire in February.

I have only had my PS4 for 3 months so i hope its not the console, it only happens when i am in grassy areas, nowhere else. In my PS4's short life so far i have acquired quite a lot of games but GTA is the only one to have this problem. I dont think it is the console cause would we not have the same problem with our other games?

Yeah, I'd expect to see problems with other games too. The only other graphical quirk I can find in other games is fuzzy/moving shadows on player faces in NHL 15 when the camera zooms in. However, I feel that is not a console issue either.

I'd have to say that it's possibly a GPU issue - this doesn't necessarily mean it's permanently broken, however. Is the console in a well-ventilated area - nothing blocking the vents, not in a confined space, generally has a good flow of air going over it?

 

If the issue worsens, then it's likely the GPU failing.

I will call Sony and see if they can fix it and if not i will have to use my warranty

Could be something like the hdmi port or cord.. loose connection maybe? Wiggle it about and see if it fixes anything. Of course if it's only going on with this game then I have no idea.
