Black Squares under player models and NPCs

Post#1 » Wed Apr 08, 2020 8:09 pm

I have this issue resurface after the patch. All characters/NPCs have black squares under them. I had it last week when I started playing again so I reran the launcher a few times and it downloaded some more files and then it was fixed. After this patch it has returned and rerunning the launcher multiple times doesn't fix it now.

Have you messed around with your in-game video settings? Just to see if there's something causing it?

I have messed with some visual settings and set to balanced and got rid of shadows to see if that caused it. Nothing seemed to fix it. I also loaded the game on my wife's for her account and she also has the exact same problem. I'm not sure what's causing it but I will probably re-install tomorrow and see if that helps. I have had the game installed since almost the beginning of the server so maybe some file somewhere? Will update post tomorrow.

Could potentially be the DX9 library too, a fresh reinstall should fix that too though.

I managed to get rid of them by selecting the worst video preset (even if i manually change the settings to the lowest, it doesn't work).
But it's ugly then =/ and my computer could probably handle 10 warhammer clients so it's a bit frustrating to have to play with poor graphics.

The game isn't optimised for the computers of 2020, it's a dated game.

Most people here play on the lowest graphics settings during RvR and turn them up during smaller / group plays.
