Erik ,

Similar to graphical problem with WITP AE please find screenshot attached showing terrain "picked up " by mouse and dropped in random places . The glitches remain as long as the screen is static but disappear when the mouse is scrolled causing the screen borders to move.

Hard Sarge ,

Problem occurs by just moving the mouse accross the map. Seems that it might be linked to disabling Direct Draw acceleration which I tried in order to speed up the game as per Erik 's suggestion.

I have just re-enabled DD acceleration and at first sight there appears to be no graphical glitches.

Is this in Full Screen or Windowed mode? Can you post a DxDiag please?

Ah, ok. Yes, we saw that on some systems with WITP where DirectDraw acceleration was disabled as well. Some systems don't seem to like that as much. One thing that may help with that in some cases is also setting the process priority to the highest setting (in the Ctrl-Alt-Del process menu).

In general though, if you're having this issue, re-enable Direct Draw acceleration to get rid of it and wait for the first update. You may also want to try Windowed vs. Full Screen mode to see if either works better for you with DirectDraw acceleration disabled.

One last thought - if you have anything unusual enabled on your mouse (like cursor trails or some such) try disabling that to see if it helps with this.

Regards,

- Erik

I had these glitches as well but when I disabled DDA emulation from game options menu they disappeared. I have the actual DDA enabled from dxdiag menu.

Just got the game as a fathers day gift and am having this issue. How do you deal with direct draw enabling disabling? I have no Idea. I have Xp pro OS. Appreciate your assistance.

I had the graphical glitches and I tried the DDA, but the graphical glitches remained. But after installing 1.02 patch and selecting "Set DirectDraw emulation software" is all without any problems.
