Game Flickering

Howdy y'all! I just purchased this game through steam last week. When I first loaded the game the game was flickering which makes things difficult and annoying to play around with. Is there anything anyone can suggest to remedy this issue? I'm excited to play this game, but the flickering isn't conducive to having an enjoyable gaming experience.

Machine Details:
Macbook Pro 13" running bootcamp with Windows 7
1TB Harddrive
8GB RAM
2.3GHz quad core processor
NVidia Graphics Card (not sure of the specs)

Hmm, unfortunately in this case I have to give you the normally BS tech support answer of "please try to update your graphics drivers". It does sound like a driver issue and especially with your combination of Hardware that could be the underlying issue.

Cheers!

Sadly it is all up to date. It is an NVidia GE Force 320M graphics card, and my Windows 7 is 64 bit. I'm not really sure what the issue could be.

Re: Game Flickering

I have no idea with Macbooks, and if they do the whole dual graphics card fun of using intel integrated for most things, and only using the nVidia card for intensive work. And sometimes it does not identify that Automation should use the nVidia card.

You may have to follow the steps here:

To find out where your Automation is install too. Right click on Automation in Steam, Properties, Local Files, Browse Local Files. I would recommend adding both "Automation Launcher Steam.exe" and "Automation_Shipping_Steam.exe"

I've got a single graphics card. (Just tried to follow the link and change it) Think upgrading to Windows 10 would help? I've got an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600@2.4GHz processor as well.

Re: Game Flickering

Is the whole game screen flickering or just sections of it?
