View Full Version : Assassin's Creed 3: the strange, black particle effects issue on pc version

Hello there everyone. First I must say that I'm really enjoyng the game. I love the setting and the naval battles, while pretty simple, are a blast. It's also a pretty good looking game and (on my rig) it actually performs far better than AC:R. There's but one, annoying issue. For some reason instead of the usual particle effects, I get strange black dots and stripes. It' not arctifacting. It's more like the textures are not loading properly. By the way I get that only in the frontier. Boston and the homestead work fine. It's not a major issue but it's not pretty to look at. I think I might have some screenshot displeying the issue. I've posted that here because I haven't seen anything similar posted anywhere else.

Edit: It's pretty subtle, but this screenshot shows the issue fairly well: http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/9637/2012112500004.jpg
This one is taken in Boston, where everything works fine: http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6617/2012112500032x.jpg
My Gpu works fine, by the way.
