Graphic problem in TSL: Small, transparent blot in the middle of the screen

I have this weird blot(?) in the middle of the screen that makes PC and NPCs become transparent/invisible. Screens:

WHat I noticed, is that this "blot" that makes my party and other NPCs invisible, seems to be "moving" in the same rythm and direction as NPCs heads, in the screenshoots I posted as Fassa's head for example. What's more, when I'm further away from Fassa, the "blot" becomes smaller (as in screenshoot 3). When camera's orientation is changed (while walking around the module, or in conversation) the bug disappears (as in screenshoot 4). Of course when I'm near other NPCs, it happens again. It think it has to be sth with NPCs heads shaders/geometry/shadows/collision points (though I have no idea what I'm talking about now really). Anyone able to help? I have the latest drivers for my GeForce Ti4200, so I don't think it's a problem.

Sorry for my english, I don't really know how to describe this weird bug

I've been debating on whether or not to comment on this because I've never seen anything like this before.

Weird.

Oh, and uh, this belongs in the workbench.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

In "Read before posting..." thread in the Workbench it said that "If your problem even remotely sounds like a bug that doesn't have a major effect on the game itself, then please post about it in the Padawan's Lounge Forum." This glitch I have doesn't affect my gameplay, it's only annoying, so I thougth I should post it here (If mods think otherwise please move the thread).

So, no one able to help me?

I stand corrected.

Does this anomoly happen in any other game?
