I don't know if this has been addressed in another thread, but when I click to observe a few things closer I am shown a star filled sky or clouds. The clue or thing I am trying to see isn't there. This doesn't happen all the time. Only three different times so far in Tomahna. Everything else has been running great. Can anyone help?

ok. I went and dowloaded some NIVIDIA beta v.66.72 and it's made the game horrible! It's all shakey and messed up. How do I put it back to the way it was? Help!

Alright. I put my graphics back the way it was and everything is all nice now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif So back to my original problem. The picture here is what I see when I click on the paper in the desk in Atrus's bedroom. I'm having absolutly no other problems. Is it a game problem or something else?

don't try the beta drivers, try the regular ones.

As far as I know, I have the latest drivers installed. Everything is working fine and as of yet I have not experienced any of the problems I see in this forum. The only problems I have is trying to read the note on Atrus's bedstand and the one in the cubby of his desk in the bedroom. I'm wondering if it's not a game glitch.
Perhaps someone would be kind enough to PT me pics of those two items so I can see what they are. If that's the only two problems I have then I'm not going to mess around. (Had a near mess last night with some drivers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif) So any help with those two things would be appreciated. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

before i installed the new drivers, i did a temporary fix: i would alt-tab out while i was zoomed in, then it would display when i went back into the game.

For some reason I find that amazingly beautiful.

Once you try the driver recommendation of Gadrens please let us know your status and what driver version did/didn't work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Also, which graphics card are you using? I don't see that in the above anywhere.

I too have that problem (but didn't with the demo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif ). I'll have to try your solution when I go back on tonight. BTW-Nividia graphics card with latest drivers.

Hopefully the thread starter will visit this thread again.

Loridion, I have two questions.
1. Are you running on a laptop?
2. What is the chip model you have?

Please look at this thread for similarities...
Graphic problem - imager and zooms (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=580100736&m=6501079522)

I've attempted the Alt-Tab workaround to no avail.
