View Full Version : Mildly irritating Sith Armor issues

This probably has something to do with my oh so wonderful Intel 945GM graphics controller, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway. For some reason, the texture on certain things, most notably the sith armor, is either missing or messed up. From screenshots that I've seen, the sith armor is supposed to be metallic and reflective. Unfortunately for me, it is not. The armor is white. In addition to this, the crystals in the Dantooine crystal cave are also white. My system:

I was unsure about the placement of this, seeing as how it's not a debilitating problem, but since it's a graphical one I put it here. If it doesn't belong here, well, if some kind moderator would find it a home, that would be much appreciated.

Try some of the suggestions in the Intel video card thread. (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=148276)

Also--turn your anisotropy down or off to see if that helps.

Sadly, I have tried both of those things, and neither of them worked.

I experienced this when I played on my old comp. I don't know much about graphics cards and all that, but in my case it was just that I didn't have a good enough card. Maybe that's it. In my case, I eventually got a high quality laptop.

You can only turn your graphics options up as far as they'll go in the game, but unless you get a better card there just isn't anything you can do; not that I know of, at least.

Darn. Well, thanks for the help anyway.
