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!

The Problem is during play of Half-Life 2 Episode 2 Portions of the screen flash Pink and purple triangles and other shapes like maybe the textures aren't refreshing correctly. This seems to also slow down game play. I didn't have this problem with HL2 or HL2 ep 1. When I ran Ep 2 like the second time steam told me my video card drivers were out of date so I updated them but the problem persisted. Then another occasion when I tried to play it said again my drivers were out of date. This time I went directly to the Nvidia site and got the latest drivers. Still having the same issue. Also before the second driver update the problem has started occurring in Team fortress 2 also which I have been playing fine for weeks. I have de-fragged my computer and had steam run a check on the HL ep 2 files and everything checked out fine but still having the same problem. No recently added hardware or software, and the only help on steam says to make sure the drivers are up to date. Anyone else having this problem or had ideas on how to fix it?
