Is it normal that under water when u turn on a flash light, all the sprites (the seeweed and stuff) are completely messed up? With me they are like encased in a big box... The box is invisible but you see it's outline.... Normal? And Since I doubt it is, how do i fix this?

Why didnt you just install 61.34 drivers.

This is a driver issue , this occurs with lighting set to V high using 61.40 drivers.

If youve got ATI then its still a driver issue. Try 4,7 cats.

4.5 Beta drivers are supposed to be the best.

Turn the lighting down one notch and see if that solves the problem.
But the certainty is that it is driver.

If this only affects the underwater plants why are you getting so steamed up about this? There are no underwater fight scenes and you drown if you stay down there too long anyway. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Try enjoying the game and don't turn your flashlight on when swimming - there, fixed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

got the same problem (pic 2) with the underwater-weed, but without the flashlight. I'm sure its a driver issue. I didn't have it when i was playing with my old nvidea driver for my FX5200 gfx-card. I installed the latest omega-drivers, and i noticed the problem. But the game runs smoother with the omega-driver so i decided to leave it this way. So i suggest that you try some different drivers and see which one works best.
