View Full Version : Player Icons disappearing when viewed from certain angles- help needed

05-18-2012, 11:10 PM
Hi everyone,
I m running IL2 1946 4.11.1 on a HP Pavilion G6 with an ATI RADEON card and windows 7. The game is running smoothly on Directx (which gives me much better fps than opengl), but unfortunately, i have a problem with other players HUD icons (the ones that tell name, range and plane type) and padlock. When I view them from above, they disappear, and reappear when we are again at approximately the same altitude, or i am lower. It is as if the icons are being put in a background, non visible layer. This problem is fixed when i run opengl, but for the reasons stated above i dont want to switch to it.
Any ideas on how to fix it?

This is a known issue for many years. If you insist on running in DirectX, you will have to live with it.
