Annoying Lens Flares while playing

Post by Mezcal » 26 Oct 2012 14:45

Sorry for lack of better subject description and technical knowledge!

I have been experiencing some very annoying screen flashes while playing some games. For example in "The Pirate Princess," I am getting these fire-like splotches popping up continually while moving around...all across the screen at random times. It happens so quickly I cannot capture an exact screen shot of the problem.

I have a widescreen monitor set at high resolution...and have tried reducing resolutions, and different video settings to no avail.

I also tried to reduce the quality in settings to less that 32 bit true color, but no help.

System is quad core with 12 gig of ram, and HD video card.

I've searched the tech help pages here and don't see a similar topic, so was hoping someone who has experienced the same problem, and knows how to fix it would help.

Thank you.

As far as I can tell it has nothing to do with your computer.

I do also experience them in some levels, but that part I rather leave up to builders to explain why they happen.
