Skyrim Graphics Issues-- Please Help

Hey all,

I recently downloaded Skyrim via Steam, but I seem to be having some strange graphical issues. Can anyone help?

Here's what I'm seeing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUNQHD_tQPI&feature=youtu.be
You'll see a flashing sky at around 0:09 and strange black flickers in the sky at around 0:21.

My specs are below:

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video

Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

I am currently running the game on ultra settings with no problems other than the strange flashing in the video above. My Catalyst settings are set to default.

Any suggestions?

  1. I had similar problems . I turn off the anti aliasing and the fxaa and it seems to be working fine.
  2. Yea I would give what axle has done a shot.
  3. I turned off anti-aliasing and the fxaa. The problem is still there.

    Just to give more details: this only happens when I'm outside. Also, I'm running Catalyst 12.10.
  4. It looked like stuttering or tearing of some sort what are your frames in the game.
  5. According to FRAPS, it's 60 FPS.
  6. Do you have vsync turned on?
  7. It might be off. I'm not sure. According to another site, the iPresentInterval=0 line in the INI file turns off VSYNC.
  8. I would check just to be sure maybe its creating issues. You only turn on Vsync when you start to notice tearing.
  9. I tried turning it on. Alone, it didn't help. I turned up the antialiasing to 4 samples and the anisotropic filtering to 12 samples. That seems to have worked.

    Thanks for the help!
