[TSL] Flickering screen

Hi,

My problem has to do with the frame buffer effects and soft shadows.

If I enable either one then my display starts to flicker like every second frame is blank. Also I don't seem to get the frame buffer effects (not really sure what they are) everything looks the same, though I do get the soft shadows. However I experience no slow down to gameplay and everything works correctly.

I believe that 1600x1200 is supported by TSL, but that resolution doesn't appear in the config utility or the ingame config screen.

If I dont enable either frame buffer effects or soft shadows the game is fine (ie no flickering) so its not a game breaking bug, but I have an Nvidia card and I know most problems are associated with ATI cards.

I am running drivers from 2008 but they work fine with every other game and I assume that they are fine for TSL.

My video card does come up with the yellow warning after I do a hardware scan.

Heres the report from the scan.

Any advice appreciated.
