flashing screen when using magic
All of a sudden, when i try to use fireball destruction spells, or Sanguine Rose staff, i get massive flashing on my screen. With the staff, it is a ball of flashing green and red in the area where the staff was pointed to, but it covers maybe a quarter of my screen. When i attempt to use fireball spells, my entire screen flashes this way. It started when my computer kept crashing (screens would go black, while fans, etc kept running...had to restart computer each time). So i updated the driver for my graphics card, and now i have this problem. I have also tried reinstalling the game, but it did not seem to do anything to help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Start the game from your Steam library (not the SKSE loader) go to options in the first splash screen and turn down or turn off anti aliasing

turning off anti-aliasing seemed to work, but i wonder why the prior 300 hours that i played with it on didn't make it do this....any ideas?

If you verified the integrity of the game cache at any time recently , your graphics settings may have gotten changed. Also if you up-dated your graphics card drivers, there might have been ill effects.

If you instaaled a mod, there might have been some compatability issues.

Usually when I notice game issues , or any computer problems , I try to think of the last software or hardware chage I've made. It could even be sourced to a Microsoft up-date in some instances.
