I'm seeing some weirdness with the .50 tracers lately, occasionally - especially against the water at low alt - the nearest .50 tracer graphics seem to lose their alpha value and get drawn as deep red with a thick black outline.

Me too...but that also applies to distant muzzle flashes from ships and AAA fire as well.

Very strange.

Me three. . . it's pretty ugly. I have also seen this on aircraft with illuminated position lights.

One way I seem to be able to bring this effect out - do a crash ditch in the A-20 into the sea, switch to the bottom gunner position, and fire off a few rounds - starts to happen to the muzzle flash graphic from your turret gun after a few shots.

If you switch cockpit off and pan, you'll get those black countours on lights too.

That effect happens a lot in even when looking at muzzle flashes in wings from inside.
