PC/Steam - Flickering / Glittering Light on Certain Maps
I'm not certain if this should be posted here or in the bug section. This issue has been around prior to Resident Evil's patch (since I returned to the game) and only seems to get worse over time. So, I'm writing to this forum to seek out any potential solutions from the community or any developers on the issue.
DESCRIPTION OF THE ISSUE
On certain maps, such as Gas Haven or Swamp Maps, the light textures will cause issues during the game and resort in random, distracting patterns. These patterns can actually cause an issue with gameplay performance and potentially cause a elliptic seizure. (I'm not trying to be hyperbole about this.)
On the swamp map, it appears as this weird, glittering effect. However, if enough sprint or scratch marks come across the watery texture, then it can potentially cause a red flashing effect and grows worse over time. This issue goes away if I switch the textures down to Low Quality, but I take a performance hit for a bit when I do this. So, this hinders my performance in-game as a killer and survivor, waiting for the game's engine to behave properly.
On Gas Haven, I had the light texture on the gas station glitch out. This resulted in the light texture flickering wildly throughout the entire realm, if I approached or walked away from the giant sign at certain angles. (I almost disconnected this match, because it was starting to give me a headache.) This issue didn't happen until recently.
I decided to get into a custom game with a friend to illustrate the issue at hand with Swamp's ground textures. From what I've been told by friends, I'm not suppose to have this glitter effect with the water.
Regarding Gas Haven, I would need to try recording a few games and see if I can showcase the issue.
What have I done to try troubleshooting the issue:
- Rolled back GPU drivers to September 2020 with the effects still existing.
- Overclocking my CPU and RAM only made the game unstable.
- Underclocking my CPU and RAM changed nothing.
- Switched the game from a HDD to SSD.
- Fresh Reinstall on the SSD.
