Strange graphics problem
Does anybody else have strange faint horizontal lines running through vegetation and the water at the swamps? my game is fully patched and my specs are:

Radeon 7970
FX 8350
16 GB RAM

Yup, though they aren't persistent. I think it has something to do with the game's lighting, it's a bit wonky - stand on the beach and watch the sun rise and you'll see how weird the god rays are.

Man, thats a relief! the god rays are strange they are often purple as well. The lines problem is strange it only effects the foliage when its obscuring water. It also effects the edges of water in some dungeons. They are perfectly straight and lined up.

Do you get this as well? this is stressing me out so much. My machine seemed fine up until a couple of days ago.
Watch full screen and 1080p and watch the shoreline glitching with the lines. I get that spread through a lot of my games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaQxg0UVI_k

No I don't get that effect. I would turn off any fancy schmancy stuff under Catalyst that you may have checked (morphological filtering, etc.) and make sure your card is using the application settings only. Also if you're overclocking, don't; as this can cause strange things to happen too. Maybe check for driver updates, yada yada. These steps usually work for me, though I'm no expert and can't say for sure what your problem is. Could be your video card is faulty, especially since you have this problem with multiple games. Good luck!

Okay, just turned on the bells and whistles in Catalyst and not getting any weirdness in my game, though it does look a bit better so that's nice. Btw I have a Radeon HD 7950, not far off from your model.

Thanks for your help! seems my pc is at fault then, its so strange i get that effect in Fable 3 as well. The odd thing is is that i have seen some Youtube vids of people playing Fable 3 and getting the problem while others dont. Makes me think it's a driver issue. But i have run driver sweeper.

Fable 3 runs w/out that problem for me. Could be anything - that's the give and take of PC gaming for you. Glad I could (kind of) help.

Nah you helped a lot, thank you :)

HA! So i think i came to the same beach in your video - and I'm now getting that funky glitch. Maybe it's just this particular beach (I'm killing undead for some water mage), but I'm going to have to say this is probably the game's fault. No other game is giving me any trouble, and no other area of the game has done this. Also, I tried to jump onto a rock on the beach, and my character floated across the water stuck in a falling animation and died. Hope this eases your mind a bit.

It does actually! The same effect is visible when viewing the water from a distance behind Diego's hut at the beginning as well. Is fable 3 installed on your pc still?. A certain section in the library has a really annoying choppy shadow that looks identical to this. If i make a video and link it on here will you check on yours?
If it's not installed thats cool you dont have to install it, heck you dont have to even check for me really. just wondering.
I must have OCD or something :O
regardless, if and when i fix this issue (if it is an issue) you will be the first to know of the solution!

I get that. I also get the horizon between sea and sky with a line or a thick line. That flickers in and out and often goes away.

Thank you, the worst thing is the horizontal lines at the corners of small ponds and when you view bushes with water behind them in Tooshoo.
