Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Are these video artifacts or just seems in textures/geometry?
Occasionally while playing a game, I'll see small flashes of white dots.
They are not so much "in" my screen as in flat corruption on the screen, as they are in the world geometry. As of late it has grown to a concern for me.
What has consoled me as of late, that it might just be texture/seeming issues of the game rather than issue with my video card is that they usually appear in the same vacinity and appear/disappear as I move, rather than being on the screen all the time.
I seek your help in determining if this is just issues with the texture/geometry or the engine itself of certain video games and thus harmless, or if this sounds like a much bigger (read:expensive) problem.
