The big problem is that no matter what, when I launch the game, I get this weird flashing. It's not like a graphical flicker that many people are talking about on the internet. What I get is like every 1 second or so, my whole screen (including task bar, etc, since the game is in windowed mode) flashes black. Then the picture comes back for 1 second and it flashes again. If I click on the maximize/minimize button at top right, it stops the flashing, but then as soon as I click inside the game window the flashing starts again.
Any ideas? I've been googling for 4 hours with no luck. Going to try to get a refund tomorrow since I heard you could do that if you bought through origin.
