The quote Andrew posted was referring to the issue when I thought it related to the mini-maps graphics. The comment I'd made in response to you Arnhem was this:

RE: sending your post to CC developers - We've seen your post Arnhem1944.

FYI - I use Nvidia cards and have not had a single problem with this or any other for that matter. They've worked flawlessly for me. As Tejszd posted above he uses Nvidia with no problems either. I'll make a report in the event it turns out to be something we can do something about.

Please tell us what model card you are using Arnhem1944.

Hello!

Have the developers any news in this issue. And what we can do to fix it. My friends that have the same issue have also some kind
of Nvidia 400 series card. And whats the problem is it a thing Nvidia must fix or the developers off the game.

Kind Regards

As I don't have any Nvidia card any longer are those of you with no problems running the latest 258.96 drivers from nvidia? I don't think that you need a 400 series card to see this effect.

Hello!
Andrew i thought you where an administrator on this forum not a comedian.
I have been asking for help on an technical issue, that can be a big issue when
people upgrade their systems to the new Nvidia 400 series cards. And the thing
you do is to make fun of me. I have played Close Combat since microsoft released
them a long time ago. And have never posted any thing on this forum before.
But when i and other people see that the program dont work any more we must
inform on the issue.

Please change to a better attitude.

Kind Regards
arnhem1944

Arnhem1944 your report was taken seriously, I filed a report on July 9th and our lead developer is looking at it to see what, if anything, can be done about it on our end. Thanks for your understanding.

Just t0 narrow it down a little further

i installed the 258.96 drivers on my GT220 and no problems.

This , i guess, leaves three possibilities remaining.

1. Nvidia have stuffed up with the 400 series cards

2. User video settings are incorrect

3. S3T need to work out what Nvidia are doing - see #1

Number 1 sounds a bit harsh but probably is the problem, Nvidia have stuffed up, but it could have been said in a more palatable way to someone who bought a new expensive video card....

1. Nvidia have stuffed up the 400 series driver

Just because it is the same driver package does not mean that all the same files and or paths through the code/files are being followed on different video cards....

Thanks Andrew for testing. Very suprised that this is specific to 400 series but at least we know now.

There is a new 260 series beta driver available from NVIDIA - please give this a try when you can and let us know the results.  It can be downloaded here:

I have the exact same problem. It's new to all my Close Combat games (that's all of them) since I upgraded to a HD monitor, Windows 7 (64 bit) and - as above - a GeForce GTX 460. I've just switched to the latest (beta) 260 drivers recommended above by Steve and it makes no difference. Please, please try to fix this. The games are not really playable without the use of the zoom out mag mini map because you can't see enough of what is going on. The GTX 460 is a very popular card, so this problem will be widespread, I fear. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback on the use of the 260 drivers Phoenix. We're doing what we can but the problem is on NVidias side. Steve has contacted Nvidia to file a report. No guarantees it'll prompt Nvidia to action. You can help by filing reports with Nvidia as well.

I have contacted NVIDIA about the bug, but no response so far.  If anyone with the problem would be willing to help me test possible solutions, please send me a PM.

Yes!

This sucks everything works perfect on advanced graphic games. But when you play a non graphic intensive game like the Close Combat series. You get problems. i Do hope we
can work out an solution to this problem related to the Nvidia 400 series cards.


Kind Regards

My own cards is an gigabyte 460OC 1GB. Latest firmware and latest Bios.

Do you own any other non-3D engine games you can test this with other than Close Combat?

No sorry!

But when you read nvidia support forum this issue is reported for other games to!
The problem is to get Nvidias attention to this problem. I think the only thing is for the
developers of the close combat series to report this issue to Nvidia.

Kind Regards

The problem was reported to NVidia some time ago.

Hello!

I have tested the new 260.89 WHQL driver. And the issue is not fixed. This issue sucks.
Who knows when Nvidia will fix this issue, maybe never.

Kind regards

arnhem1944 have you tried Windowed mode?

My Nvidia 8600 GTS died this past weekend so I picked up a Nvidia GTS 450 for Windows 7 64bit computer. Installed driver 260.99, resolution 1920x1200 32bit color and LSA in Windowed mode and I have not see the corruption when using the view map preview when I click on a battle name or zoom out in battle....
