My trusty old ati 9800 pro kicked the bucket last week so i was forced to get another card and after browsing many hardware forums and reviews decided to go for a gigabyte nvidia 6600GT . When i first played the game on this new card i couldnt help notice that when playing on wide mode (using LODmixer) the players back numbers and letters had like a sparkle/glitter effect to them . I have tried just about all the settings for this card (AF/AA etc) but cant seem to get rid of this shiny pixel/glitter effect . I dont remember seeing this when i was using my 9800pro and was wondering if it had anything to do with an ati feature known as SMARTSHADER . Can anyone shed any light on this especially if you have either of the above cards , cheers guys , Steve.
