What NOW?

Since 1.11 I’ve been seeing a graphical error rear its head after playing for awhile, and I have no idea what it is. Toons running around start appearing completely untextured and black, except for key components like hair, weapons, or random pieces of armor.
It starts out as group members, and then *my* toon turns black, and soon everyone is running around without any textures.

Today, a new bug added itself to thsi process: All the textures started to deteriorate to extremely crappy levels, as if it was a 256 color game. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? And can i point the blame at WoW, or my graphic card starting to die on me?

    I can’t belive how pathetic this site has become. You guys acutally used to post cool things that weren’t just reposts of news from the WoW forums or the same things on wowinsider. But now we have posts like “What server should I join?” or “help fix my video card?”.

    keep up the unprofessionalism. its making your site oh so relevant.

    P.S. posting more than once every 3 days would help too.

    unprofessionalism followed by an incorrect usage of ‘it’s.’ well played, kingmanor, well played.

    My first guess: An overheating video card. If the fan isn’t broken, then I suggest upgrading your video drivers.

    Ha… the point of the post was more to show off what I thought was a rather amusing and interesting graphics error, but i guess if there’s fault in this post, it’s that I didn’t make the point clear. My bad.

    Thank you for your comment, Kingmanor, you may now return to the Barrens General chat.
