3870 source engine shadow noise.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
anyone else have this problem with shadows? i recorded at 1280x1024 and downscaled the video to fit here. the probabl is still just as obvious, and oh yeah, i put up some mood music for you guys too.

shadows are noisy, position is static no matter what i do. ill do another fraps i guess wher ei can move back and forth too, even more obvious.

another edit: mainly what i am looking for is maybe an older driver revision to lessen or fix this issue? ive been through 8.3/8.4/8.5 trying to resolve this issue, no luck.

I have the same problem
In all games I play now - NFSS, Assasin's Creed, Gears of War... SO that's surely not a game problem!

i think in your SS its a little more on the side of lacking shadow filtering, wheras with HL2:EP2 it seems to be a poor method of filtering shadows, and not a lack of filtering.

and no AMD has not replied to my ticket.
