This issue has been around for so long that I can't quite remember if there was ever a point when it wasn't. I decided to try and fix this issue that I have in Left 4 Dead 1 where specific fire sources emanate this large, obnoxious black splatter that strobes.
The picture I've provided is an example of the effect on The Sacrifice, but it can be seen also on the crashed helicopter in the intro of Crash Course and in the windows of the burning apartments at the start of Dead Air just outside the greenhouse. I will add a link for helicopter here....http://cloud3.steampowered.com/ugc/918992914861760108/3EA4914B2EB296B225E4D276104B9CEC96A4E9E8/
MY ATTEMPTED FIXES (that didn't work)...... I did a clean un-install of all my display drivers then updated with the latest version provided by AMD (then I installed various earlier versions that did not work either). I adjusted my graphics levels to various high and low levels. I disabled all addons.
Can someone help meh ??
Graphics adapter = AMD Mobility Radeon 6700m
