Ubi, please fix the problem of our computer not meeting the minimum requirements.

Just because some people post links saying that it has more brute power does not make the card more appropriate for playing Division. If you are bellow that AMD 7XXX series line you should probably return the game as your purchase was made without consulting the requirements (in a reasonable state of mind).

The flickering has also been reported by users with a 7000 series card.

Missing the point of all these people being able to play fine before this new patch and being able to test that it will work for them in the open and closed beta before purchasing. How can anyone predict that they'll break the game for them in future patches?

The problem exist because of amd. Amd is no longer supporting anything older than the 6000 series cards. They sent them to legacy status. This is why ubisoft decided not to support the 6000 series cards in the first place. Take your frustrations out on AMD guys, They should be supporting a card that is only 4 years old. WE GIVE THEM A LOT MORE MONEY THAN UBISOFT!!!! However i think ubisoft may resolve this issue but it may take some time. Heres a link (http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/legacy?product=legacy3&os=Windows+10+-+64) to amd's website where they talk about sending the 6000 series to legacy status. Please ubisoft fix this problem, were not all rich and can affort new hardware every few years!!

Didn't go through this entire thread to see if anyone is running SLI. But if you are, i got rid of the flickering by going into the NVIDiA control panel>manage 3d settings and changed the SLI rendering mode for the game to "force alternate frame rendering 2". Unfortunately, it lowered my average frame rate from 60 fps to 56fps but at least i don't have to worry about getting a seizure. =D

So it seems many issues are mostly haunting those with

1, AMD
2. Windows 10
3. SLI or CFX

And ofc. those with really old gfx cards, buts thats normal.

AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3.2

The Division may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire mode.

STILL NOT FIXED, so I guess its Ubisofts fault.

my specs:
AMD FX 9590
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
16 GB of RAM 2400 (runs at ~2100)
ASUS R9 295x2 8 gb (1 video card)
Windows 10 Home x64
19" screen (1280-1024)
AMD latest drivers from 28/03/16

Beta - no flickering
ver. 1.0 - a bit of flickering at base and in some buildings
ver 1.02 - flickering all over the place which goes to total white screen

The only way to get off of those flickering is play in windowed/windowed(bordless) mode but then my fps goes from 35 (nothing hepens at screen) to 19 (in most "epic" moments) (mid-high video settings), while division test simulation shows that in fullscreen mode my averege fps should be 77 in same video settings

P.S.
finaly received pre-order stuff, after 70 hours of gameplay)

P.S. 2
I noticed that in main menu where we choose character, visualy characters look much more better then in the actaul gameplay close to what we saw in e3 2013

The new crimson edition driver, is not support HD6000 series videocard. The last driver for HD6000 is Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta . He is not resolve flickering issue. So i have a bad news for all owners HD6000, issue not will be fixed it is 100% information...

The unplayable flickering started with the newest patch(1.0.2), this has nothing to do with drivers, I've used the same ones during both betas and before this patch with no problem. As soon as the game updated this all started. This would mean ubisoft has done something with the lighting effects that is causing this, hopefully they can either revert the change or give some command for the engine to disable the effect.

bingo! At this point I really wish they would just give a definitive answer on what they are doing. If they are going to say screw it, anyone who has this problem is out of luck...or if it is something they are trying to fix. (It is not on the known issue list)

Which raises an interesting question, if a company releases a game, proven to run fine, and then patches the game to make it unplayable for some, do we have the right to refunds? Cause as you stated, they held an open beta, game was playable. They released the game, as playable. In any other industry, you buy a product, it stops working because of a manufacturer defect, in this case, a change, you get a refund.

Got fed up with this, started playing around in settings, noticed a bloom setting in a config file that isn't shown in game.

C:\Users\xxx\Documents\My Games\Tom Clancy's The Division\graphic setting.cfg

Look for: bloom = true
Change to: bloom = false


and that, while not completely cured the issue, made it about 96% better imo.

I think they dont care this issue.Cause of nvidia.But we dont pay 3x money for nvidia cards.We are play this game very clearly before 1.02 patch.So stop talking about systems and do ur job ubi.Ppl play this game very clear before buy this game.(cbt and obt.).So we dont buy nvidia cards.Do ur job and fix this problem.

If you change "indoor = true," to "indoor = false," the Flickering will be 95% gone.. BUT you will have a black shadow over all thing below character eye level in your base of operations(can't see vendors or JTF officers) :rolleyes: It's a "fix" to one problem but in turn creates another one hahaha.

as an FYI- Stay away from anything that generates a Glare from the Sun or that the sun is shinning through as it is "setting". the Mass screen whiteouts seem to be caused when the sun is going down and reflecting on the building you are in,around, or near.

here are a couple of my videos from the past 2 days. I will continue to upload untill Ubi and AMD get together to come up with a Fix.

and as info when i am NOT using an HD6000 series card these issues happen so this is no longer a blanketed issue to one specific series of cards.

Maybe I missed it but I have yet to see them even acknowledge the issue and put on the Known Issue page aside from the "I will pass this along" reply way back in this thread.. Why on Earth would you expect them to have a Fix lol.

I would LOVE to see a follow up post from Ubi just simply stating that Yes we are testing it in house - We are infact able to recreate the issue and are working on it from there.

(Being in nVidia's pocket I doubt any of their systems even have any of the Red Team's Cards in them to begin with so 99% of their testing platforms are probaly Green cards and the other 1% of the results come from Alpha and Beta testers lol - This is all speculation of course.. :)

I dunno , since PC releases when you want to test it , you will run it on different product specifically to trackdown these issues.
So it would be weird Q&A actually just ran a certain HW config and would be against the point of the entire Q&A.

I would advise to stop thinking about "teams" when those teams are 2 companies ;) It's just Team consumer here ;)

I'm using an nvidia card right now , so I'm not getting these issues , yet everytime I see a 1.0.2 video with "crazy disco mode lights" I cringe and I'm sad for the consumer.
This and the people that cannot play cause of the backpack bug, missing important npcs ( tech wing ) , look really bad ( although Backpack bug has been addressed )
Lately I see a lot of ppl claiming they are on Team green or red and that's a weird illusion. Nvidia and AMD are their own teams , we are team "we bough it".

Ubisoft should give an official answer to this , since the users have already tracked down the specific HW it happens, half the job is done by the community. ( You even posted a workarround for it (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1402308-Strobe-Flickering-in-game-making-it-unplayable?p=11552456&viewfull=1#post11552456) , that will probably help in detecting what is causing this )

So free bump to this, hope you guys get this bug fixed fast.

I'm somewhat suspicious of of green team profit motives and collution here. Particularly when ubi-soft is strangley silent about the crossfire issue. After all fixing AMD issues might lead to Red team profits and less green profits team since red team tends to be cheaper in the first place. This is a "Nvidia" game after all. Corporations pull this stuff all the time, why should Ubi-soft or Nvidia be any different. Non of us Red team suckers are going to get thet're money back anyways.
Lessons learned.....if you run AMD only buy AMD logo games and the same for Nvidia.

You are not RED team , unless you are getting the money ;)
Untill you work for AMD or Nvidia , stating that you are in a TEAM , is just stating your a marketing tool.

You are consumer team ;) Don't get dragged to their fight ;)

Consumers tend to create attachment to brands, that is great for the brand , bad for the consumer.
If you get a problem .... your "TEAM" doesn't even know who you are.

You should buy the best option , if now someone with an orange colour offers me a 50$ card that runs great , I'll buy that. Why should I as a consumer pretend I'm part of a team that's a corporation that wants to sell me a product ?

BTW : A lot of SLI users are also getting major issues, so there goes that theory ( a 3rd party profile is the best performer in SLI , stuttering issues ... ) though I wouldn't compare that to this though.

Ubi needs to fix this , blaming nvidia/AMD for this is stupid and is blame-shifting, Ubi should give some info at least stating they are aware of this and an ETA on this fix.

I tried turning off the "inside" option in the files. It didnt help and it didnt even give me the weird shadows. I also tried deleting the game, then deleting the game folder in "My Games". Once i installed it back, the settings stayed (weirdly) and the problem remained.

Up goes this thread.

This must be the worst thing 1.0.2 brought to users.

I understand that due to consoles and PC , a client update is a mess and has a certain timeline problem , but exceptions must be made for certain stuff.
This problem affects PC only , I think "1.0.1b" should have arrived some time ago.

Yep this only affects the PC since we can have such a diverse hardware.

But seriously. Ubisoft please. Tell us something. You just told people that got locked out from their accounts due to the backpack bug, that the problem will be fixed on 12th of April with patch 1.1.

This issue is of the same capacity. People stop playing because its literally impossible. Headaches are being caused by this. So in some way this is a bit more serious. Now that you have a fix on the backpack, would you please work on this? Please.

I up, got the same problem and it's really annoying. What's that support, the worst I've ever seen, I don't think I'll buy any of your games anymore.
I went to AMD forum and support directly respond to all of my question in ONE DAY so what's up with yours?

Windows 7 64 Bits, latest CCC (15.7.1) driver, AMD Radeon HD 6950 (and don't tell me it isn't because of the AMD Radeon HD 6xxx series) and AMD FX-8150 Eight-core.


What should we do to be heard Ubi, tell me?

Ubi$oft, take exemple from CD Project Red Studio, solving almost every bugs stated in a day-one patch and providing really nice free and paid DLC making their games even better than they already are.

04-02-2016, 03:35 PM
If the game market wasn't polluted with Nvidia Gameworks I reckon half these problems wouldn't exist for AMD users. 16.3.2 is joke of a driver from AMD, rolling back to 15.12 is the only fix I personally can think of to stop disco city giving me a bloody fit (even though I'm not epileptic). They know about it but don't give a **** it seems, poor show AMD, poor show!

EDIT: Borderless windowed or windowed gets rid of the flickering but the massive dip in frames isn't worth it.

Nvidia Geforce Drivers 364.72 Released Division notes for drivers inside.
[SLI, Tom Clancy's The Division] Frequent freezes and pauses as well as low GPU usage result in low FPS. ---This was noted for windows 7 and Windows 10 (shudder).

So as always - *clean* install of the drivers tends to help with Nvidia drivers.

Just so you know, this issue has already been forwarded and is under investigation.
For now, the only thing I can recommend is verifying files in Steam/Uplay and making a Clean install of the latest graphics card drivers.
You might also want to turn off Bloom / Vignette in the graphic settings.
Also, please make sure you don't have third party programs running in the background like overclocking software.

Vignette and bloom didn't changed anything. As part of the troubleshooting the background apps were verified too. Still not working as expected.

Personally, I already reinstalled, put all of the settings to off (yes, including Bloom and Vignette) and the problem still persisted. No overclocking software present.

Thank you a lot for the update tho. I hope you can keep us up to date with the situation! :3

Thanks for the Follow up Glad to see this thread isn't going un-noticed! I'm sure it's tough keeping up with a topic that has 30 pages of replies and 27,000 views - Which is out pacing every other topic and even stickied threads that have been here since day 1.

Would someone be able to verify if Ubisoft has in fact been able to re-create these issues? It's going to be very difficult to trouble shoot an issue that can't be re-created in-house. Especially when I'm guessing that all testing platforms are probably somewhere in the range of less than 2 years old at most.

Most companies are testing on how high they can get their games to run at when in reality only 15% of the customer base is actually going to be running the $800-$1200 videocards. and maybe 30% are in the mid-to high end cards at $400+ and then the other %55 would be somewhere in the range of $200-$300 and then running that card for 3+ years.

I wonder if when being tested different cards were used from both ends of the performance spectrum.
For example (SLI GTX 980 TI down to a single 2gb 750 TI or less)
and the AMD equivelants and as far down the ladder as a 5XXX series card.

Well its been what over 3 weeks now that i haven't been able to play do to these problems, spend over 80 euro's on it been able to play for 115 hours first week up until the patch so a refund is out of the question as well.

Why arent u responding to our requests Ubisoft u say its under investigation but then nothing is being heard about it at all,
not a single post not a single patch or whatever.

Tbh growing tired of this, always been a supporter of your company and own most of your games, but if this is how u treat
your fans/customers then let me tell u that the Division was the last game i ever bought of u.

No more AC ttile no more FarCry or anything else.

AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.4.1 Hotfix

Guess what?

The Division may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire mode.

PC System Analysis for The Division
The Divisions graphics requirements are very demanding, by modern PC hardware standards. Lots of small objects litter the gamers screen at any given time, pushing CPU and graphics card needs to their limits. Minimum Division graphics requirements are starting with an AMD HD 7770 or GTX 560, but it is definitely recommended to have something around an Nvidia GTX 960 or GTX 970. 8GB system memory and a top end CPU will also be encouraged.

So i asume that everyone with lower specs will have issues

ihave amd 5500 and that is definatly terrible
Flickering and pure white screens so i dont have a clue where im going ... (and all visual specs in game options are on LOW or put off and its still to heavy, so go figure :) )

so end of the month im gonna buy a better system with at least the minimum requirements

Come on!!! someone needs to get their act together, this game is still flickering on AMD crossfire. You hyped the game being made with MGPU/4k resolutions as a key selling point, so why is it still flickering on crossfire 4 weeks later?? This is unacceptable, AMD have released 3 or 4 driver updates since release, each time putting in the known issue "The Division may experience flickering in AMD Crossfire mode"

Not good enough.

I have a 6950 graphics card 2gb one of the first being released and prior to the first patch i had 0 issues with the game
it run rather smooth though at low settings but didn't have a single issue or crash or DC.

After the patch game became unplayable.
Whatever Ubisoft has done all the ******** that people have been sprouting of cards outdated etc is just a load of ********,
if that would have been the case i would not have been able to play for 115 hours the first week.

I will be buying a new system in about 2 months time 1 which will far exceed the requirements but that don't mean i don't want to
play a game for which i payed 80 Euro's and aren't able to play it now due to some ****ty patch.

Wow really? You're crapping on the company for not giving a 5-6 year old gfx card more support? In computer years this is alot more. Its graveyard old. I haven't really looked on minimum specs but kinda feel you're in the grey area with a card this old. And regarding the crossfire support, not every game gives the support afaik, and if they opt to do it at some point its because they feel nice or have the time over for it. So kinda doubt you can expect to get it "patched" because I'm pretty sure there is quite alot of underlying issues with the architecture not supporting things the engine use etc.

what don't you get that it was PLAYABLE before patch 1.02, they dropped the patch and now it is UNPLAYABLE. People only bought the game after PLAYING the betas/beginning of the game fine on their rigs only to have them PATCH them out of the game making the game UNPLAYABLE you mong

Age is sometimes irrelevant. Lets not focus on the age of a product but the specifications of said product - I say this because this is NOT A HD6XXX Series ONLY ISSUE. If you were with us for all 32 pages you would see that this issue is not only on the Sub 6xxx series cards.

The minimum system requirements posted during the Beta there was NO mention of specific models of cards only a cards specifications (2gb of ram, [X] clock speed..etc) So having said that- All these people playing the Beta and the first week had no issues and now I see the minimum requirements have been changed now that these issues arose.

Based on AMD's newest Windows Hotfix they have specifically identified a "Flickering" issue but also single it out as a Crossfire issue.. I guess we can look at this as a step in the right direction? lol

Maybe Ubisolft can take 10 minutes out of their Busy day and let AMD know that this issue is not ONLY with Cross-fire and to Test in house on Single GPU's from a lower scale(6xxx,7xxx cards)

As others have said this wasn't happening until the patch a bit over a week ago, so they really need to put in a switch to toggle on/off whatever lighting change they made, or just take it out. We're paying customers, just like everyone else, just because we're a minority doesn't make our rights any less.


Also, in defense of my card - it has been excellent. It's really never given me any problems and even now runs new games at "high" etc settings. This card's been really reliable, and have never had any reason to consider replacing it yet, and I wouldn't be surprised if others out there feel the same. Seems they were built to last.

Just so you know, this issue has already been forwarded and is under investigation.
For now, the only thing I can recommend is verifying files in Steam/Uplay and making a Clean install of the latest graphics card drivers.
You might also want to turn off Bloom / Vignette in the graphic settings.
Also, please make sure you don't have third party programs running in the background like overclocking software.

Will it be fix by the INCURSIONS patch release? Yes or no?

I can guarantee Ubisoft this, Ubisoft is losing the trust of customers and has been chasing away gamers from purchasing this game.
1st of all the division game is not that great is has 50/50 across all reviews, but it a shooter MMO therefore people are still willing to pay for trying out new IP game, provided if it can run smoothly.
But this game is unplayable with the insane flicking and shuttering issue.
In fact I haven't been playing this game other then logging in just to see of flicking has been fix yet, ever since the flicking got worst after previous patch. My siblings, cousins and friends wanted to purchase the game until they have witness the insane flicking on my computer which gives them headaches and induce vomiting as well.

I've been playing Overwatch Beta for quite awhile, And I never had so much fun for a long time and it just not me who have said the same thing.
The fact blizz just given the bird to SJWs by replacing tracer's butt pose for even more sexualized Pin-Up girl pose.
Let alone the game is freaking fun on it's own, Gamers are going to pre-order the game without any hesitation including myself and the people I've mentioned, That is where ubisoft is losing the customers.

Blizzard has done many things to earn the trust of the customer, you might want to earn from them.
In case Ubisoft don't notice, the two key thing is releasing a full game without game breaking issues and listening to customer who actually making purchase with their hard earned money,
Instead of nerfing the game to oblivion removing whatever fun is left of it, it would far wiser to focus on resolving the technical issue first.

To sum this experience up
Overwatch (Beta) = Endless Fun & trust
Division(Full game release) = Frustration, Despair, misdoubt, betrayed.

Getting the same problem, I have 6970, didn't want to come on and complain before because I only experienced flickering lights, because my graphics card was old and I was shocked that i could even run this game I thought it was a small price to pay, but now, the burning orange and white all over the screen makes it completely unplayable.

Thing is, if I was lagging badly due to low FPS then I would accept it and say to myself that its a consequence of having an old card but not this... If I play a game that is graphically intensive like ark survival evolved and im getting like 5 FPS, then im not gonna blame the game devs, I have an old card so **** happens, hey it could still be an badly optimized game but I stil have not nor have I have ever complained of having a low fps when my rig is old, but when you cannot even play the game that you could previously then its an issue. Please fix. Wierd thing is, Ive never had one bit of lag before, ive had to play on low, but even on low this game looks great.

Main problem too with playing a game that worked previously is that if I had've downloaded the game initially, found out it didn't work ( which in fairness , I half expected) then I couldve said hey it didnt work too bad, least ill get a refund. But now? After having played so many hours in the game I highly doubt they would give me a refund.

Patch looks like it has fixed my stobe flickering for now. Will obviously have to do more testing. *knocks on the wood*

What I did was:

Local Reflection Quality - Set this one to "Off" (this option may have not helped but still try)
Neutral Lighting - Set this one to "Yes" (because yes apparently turns it off)


Neutral lighting option came with this patch. It might have helped.
After you do all that, close the game and start it back up. Let me know the results!


EDIT: This seemed to have worked in "The Cavern" and in "Base Of Operations". Going out in the world i still see flickering. There's massive amounts of it still in DZ checkpoints.

EDIT 2: Im about to reinstall my Display Drivers. I will remove the crimson edition ones and revert all the way to Catalyst ones, version 15.x. Will let you know how it goes.

EDIT 3: While Crimson edition drivers still had major flickering within dark zone checkpoints and "dungeons", the Catalyst edition seem to get rid of that. For now, Catalyst edition with those optioms seems the best. Tho the nights seem way darker. Will update this post if something occurs.

EDIT 4: Looks like the flickering comes back in time. I've been playing for 45ish minutes and the good old flickering everywhere returned.

Let's face it guys, this problem will never be solved.
They already have our money, they don't care if the game works or not.
Sadly this is the state of gaming nowadays. Your game doesn't have to be functional, it just has to appear to be.

Translation: "You have difficulties with your game or you need help ? Please visit our site http://support.ubi.com to see our FAQs or to contact our support team."
Other translation: "Hey mate, we are listening to our customers, look how nice we are!"

I've been having this issue as well. I have a HD 6950 and knew I would only be able to play the game on low graphic settings and had the strobe light effect just in the BOO and safe houses at launch. Only a couple of times was it bad enough that I had to reset my game. This is why I do not think it's fair to be told to just "get a new graphics card". The game worked with my card before the 1.0.2 patch.

Massive, as others have stated, please give your players the option to disable the lighting changes made in the 1.0.2 patch namely the "Fixed a few lights that did not cast global illumination". Tired of having to tell people I'm in a group with that I need to restart the game/my computer because I'm unable to see.

So Facebook's ubi support said this:
Typically, AMD's Crossfire isn't officially supported and we'll recommend to use a single GPU instead, but it depends on the game you're playing. If you're on The Division, only NVIDIA's SLI is officially supported for duel GPU setups.

I don't have any information if they're working towards that or not sadly. We've typically partnered with NVIDIA, but we have supported AMD features on other titles in the past so I can't exclude it completely.

after the patch found a solution: delete the folder with the game settings> enter the game> "settings decrease to the minimum"> game. (Usually this is enough - if not strong flickering "in the dash to the operating base" that is relatively comfortable to play (2-3 hours)).
though it is rather an individual decision ...

I am sorry for my bad english...

Tried resetting the settings completely but it didn't do a thing for me, low/medium/high/ultra all show the same issues.
I'm at the point where i am editing the settings myself. However since there's no good explanation in the settings themselves it's all trial and error.

I have crossfire and disabled it, and the thing that amazes me the most is that in the beta the game ran fine!!!! hardly any flickering whatsoever.

Mostly fine. It was just some corners that had it and very minor one as well so it was easly overlooked. But that problem is from beta and its just getting worse each patch!

Agree. Blaming it on crossfire and didn't bother to fix it, is extremely lazy and arrogant excuses.
Even if partnered with Nvidia and Gimpworks it is still ubisoft's duty to make sure that it should run at least playable level and all current hardware.
Sorry ubisoft I'm not buying a Nvidia just to play your game, all it does it makes consumer pissed at ubisoft's shady tactics and deter from anyone purchasing ubisoft's game.

Power down there AMD fanboys, It is a new game engine. I believe that both AMD crossfire and Nvidia SLI, are having frame pacing issues making the game either a stuttering mess or flickering seizure inducing mess. (AMD & Nvidia are working on it It is probably due to this game using a new engine give it time) i have nvidia and currently my SLI is not usable either due to frame pacing issues resulting in strange lag and stutter even when my fps is into the 120+ range.

I still have minor flickering but the major strobing, disco colors, and whiting out the screen seems to have stopped for now.
I also noticed when updating my flash player that adobe states that some programs/games use their flash library. Now I don't
know if that means games other than flash games but I'm willing to hedge my bet and say it can't hurt to update them.

In Guru3D forums there used to have AMD driver modders who modded new drivers to work with older GPUs, but sadly those modder got temporary banned by a egoistic forum moderator for getting into heat argument with Nvidia trolling fanboys as the moderator is on Nivida side. And when the modder have a dispute with moderator for wrongfully banning them, they got permanently banned instead.
I too got banned for the same reasons and I bios modder who help modding from R9 290x to R9 390x.

To fix the bright strobe lighting temporarily - reboot your PC. It would stop the bright light, but it will come back a bit later.

When I was on take leader down mission in car parking lot near boxing gym and the bright light blinded me - I mean completely blind. I've tried to quit Division and come back, the problem still there. But when I rebooted the PC and went back there. The light disappeared.

However, the strobe still come back in other places.

I have been reading many different discussion across Reddit, Steam forum, etc... and it seem that the blame is on old AMD video card such as HD6000 series or older. The game requirement is HD7000 series and newer. I have seen someone with R2 290x2 had the issue but the crossfire may be also blamed.

Keep up the great work uBisoft.

Continue to make games targeting your component providers, instead of targeting your actual consumer base :) You sure know how to service the community!

Just in case you are blind/oblivious to the issue I will put it into perspective for you; (Even though the shear volume of views for this topic that is vastly larger than any "Important/Sticky" thread any mod has created should have been a dead give-away:confused:)

Essentially what you have just done is the equivalent of a government paving a highway in your area and then creating a by-law for the following vehicle requirements.
-4 Tires
-Year 2000+
-Left hand Drive

And then once the road is paved the new requirements are as follows
-4 Tires +1 spare
-Year 2000+
-Only Nissan and Toyota vehicles can drive on this highway now
We don't care if this is literally the only access you have to your work I guess you are SOL and need to find another job or buy another car.

Now we will let that sink in and maybe there will be a hotfix - I highly doubt it but hey - This made it to production so I guess anything's possible!!

OK, from what I have read on this issue, it really seems global illumination in Division is bugged on older AMD cards. Since they are not supported by AMD anymore, I am going to propose to implement an option that allows to turn off GI in game altogether into Suggestions & Feedback forum.

Probably the only way how to get this game playable on Radeon 6XXX cards.

No, the actual problem is SLI/Crossfire support in this game.
I'm running dual Fury X here and crossfire does not work. Crossfire enabled my FPS is great, but the flashing is unbearable.
The only crossfire profile AMD put out provides negative scaling and increases stutter/imput lag.

Best option is to turn down crossfire manually. Not sure how that works on that works on dual GPU cards but it's the best option. I do feel your pain tho OP, the 6970 alone probably won't deliver great FPS in the division on it's own.`

As to whose fault this is, I don't know, could be either your card manufacturer or ubi/massive.

tldr; flickering is a crossfire/sli problem, disable 1 card manually is the best solution atm.

Well not really. I was playing the new DLC, Underground, on my HD6950. Basically vanilla game (free world and base of operations) flashes the lights heavily for me. while the new content (the actual underground missions and the TOC) DO NOT FLASH LIGHTS FOR ME AT ALL. The new DLC works perfectly! This proves its not in my hardware?

Yes, there are flickering effects on single cards aswell. But I watched most people in this thread say they have dual cards or dual GPU cards and they all share the same problem. Crossfire and Sli.

Seems that bright strobe, full screen whiteout, and red/yellow texture were the issue I'm having past two days. It's lot worse than it was before DLC. I got fed up and ordered a NiVida card today (GTX 980Ti). This better be fixed.

Oh, by the way, my current card is HD6790.

That thread has nothing to do with the issue that this thread is about. The flickering isn't affecting the games performance just our ability to play the game.

Anyone with this issue tried the PTS to see if Ubisoft even bothered to try and fix this problem?

Ho, I didn't know there was a thread about this issue (which is on HD 5000 and 6000 series, ie. pre-GCN). I've opened a ticket to support about this a few weeks ago, to provide Massive devts with some gpu captures (ID #03577583).

Hi,

i have the same problem described as many people on a single HD 6950 AMD gpu.

I'm running the latest supported amd driver for this card: 16.2.1 Crimson

Does anyone know if this problem will be fixed in patch 1.4 ?

Thx!

It helps us gather information on hardware that may be causing issues with the game. If you haven't already, try fully removing your GPU drivers (in safe mode) and then reinstalling.

Tried playing again after being forced to stop about 7-8 months ago due to this issue. Still isn't fixed after all this time, crazy -_-

So anyone with a graphics card that is equivalent to a Radeon 6990 or lower is likely having the issue of the ENTIRE map flickering hundreds of times a second. I saw this in the beta and thought "surely something this hilariously bad will be fixed by launch." Nope, the game is still unplayable to a significant number of people because of this.
If you want, here's a video of the bug in action in the beta, which is still unchanged in the full version. After a massive launch-day patch. https://youtu.be/oe4fwOtgwuU

Note: This is present literally in the very first FRAME of gameplay, and continuously throughout the tutorial which I couldn't even get through without getting a splitting headache.

i recently got this game on the ps4 pro and i am having the same problem! has thier been any solutions to the problem?
