"The Division" a Second Attempt
« on: November 03, 2016, 05:47:17 PM »
So I recently updated my graphics card drivers and a thought occurred to me that maybe I could play "The Division" again. I go through setup hopeful, load in and everything is normal! I am super pumped and running around shooting things with glee. Probably five minutes in the graphical issues struck again.

White blocks everything but the HUD inside buildings. Outside was a flashing strobe light effect that drove me off to begin with.  :(

Maybe when I break down and buy a new graphics card I will return.

If you recently changed video cards and get the same problem my guess is you have some bad memory in your pc.

Blint said drivers, not card.

@Blint
that video card is pretty bad right now. Looking at the minimum specs for The Division, it list a Radeon 7770 as the minimum. However, I've seen people on steam say they're playing it with a 6650 card but they have to drop the resolution and quality to play.

Black Friday is coming up, just saying...

yeah, its pretty weird. The division Beta ran just fine for me with the graphical issues looking like the wall would vanish occasionally (rather than the current seizure inducing flashing lights I get now). Once it launched I would get dim flashing, but only if I was in a building. With a majority of DZ being in the streets and roof tops it was tolerable. After a few weeks it progressively got worse and now its to a point that it isn't just building interiors that cause the strobe light effect.

Once the problem got bad I started researching and did know that I fell below their min specs. I was just hoping on an off chance that the drivers would minimize the strobe light effect or make it similar to beta. But alas, no joy.

I'll certainly be looking at an upgrade around tax return season. I have no intention to go top of the line so I should be able to swing it. Any recommendations? Pretty sure I'll need a new PSU so I'm not worried about that, however it does need to stay down the AMD line due to the motherboard. Thanks in advance.

I haven't even made a first attempt at the division yet, but it's on my list of games I still want to try - there are just too many on the list ha

I stopped because of the unpunished hacking. That is something that shouldn't be allowed in an online multiplayer game.

It really is a fun game. I loved it. I played even with the graphical issues for a while and it was worth it. The hard modes were really punishing and when you got to the end it felt great. Specialization felt great, someone might be running a similar build as you but something always seemed different, some would sacrifice damage for health or healing. It was a great game. I look forward to diving in again when I upgrade my rig.

The hacking is only a huge deal in the pvp part of the map, while it is the majority of the end game grind there is still a lot of game you get to play before that point.

I love the game except for the PvP.  The leveling and following the story is great.  If you can find a friend or two to level with even better though it is not required.

I just recently picked the div up - my "still need to play" list is insanely backlogged - and I'm loving it so far
