Of course I did! I am not whining for the sake of whining without even trying the solutions you guys give me. Every single idea I appreciate and give it a go, and it's been a rather extensive list so far.

Yes, I used AMD's clean uninstaller as well as Guru3d's one. :/

I also had my pc @ the local IT service, they held onto it for a day and said that everything appears to be fine. No issues with power supply and energy given to the card, all connected properly to everything.

/sigh

Didn't mean to imply your whining, this appears to be a video driver issue and nothing we do will sort it until AMD release a driver update, given the issues they have with flickering and DirectX , very high chance its all related.

others do, though.

Y is support not helping me? I am paying lots for this game since before it was even released. I spent 2000 on the computer to run in HD, damn it. Got all the books, Lego sets, Collector's edition, Encyclopedia, artbook.... You know, ESO is running flawless so far.

Is it z-fighting?

Please, I still need help. I am working a lot recently and I don't really have time to arrange a good geforce GPU for testing for differences.

Does anyone have any ideas beside AMD drivers?

Could a processor 'cause such things?

What's the story with updates for motherboard and chipset? would they matter in such cases?

You will likely find using Live Update 5 easiest to use to update http://download.msi.com/uti_exe/LiveUpdate.zip

I also get vanishing buildings in Coruscant's background with bloom on.

I had something similar years ago on Warhammer Online : I bought my first (and last) AMD card when my Nvidia died and suddenly I had graphical glitches in game as many other players with AMD cards.

Months of tickets both adressed to AMD and Mythic didn't change anything, no driver updates, nothing.


Bought a new NVidia, pluged it, clean driver install and everything was solved ...


I know it's not the solution you're expecting, but you should really try an NVidia card

Answer just good as any, although I'd rather hear it from SWTOR support. You know, I just spent 450 euro on my radeon so I'd rather not spend another 600 for gtx 780 ti to experience the same issues there.

Liam rox for his answer. He said it's z-fighting but I experience it no matter the aa setting :[ Still, he blames AMD. So yeh, let's buy nvidia!



SOLVED!!!

Turn off AA in-game and enable it through Catalyst Control Center.
