Weird graphical glitches
I've been experiencing an issue occasionally (approx. 1 scene each act) where colorful visual glitches (almost tear-like) flash across the screen. After attempting a multitude of fixes for this, and finding next to nothing online, I determined the issue was OpenGL.

Forcing the game to use DirectX 11 (instead of OpenGL) has fixed the issue permanently. To do so:

1) Right-click the game in your Steam Library
2) Click Properties
3) Click Set Launch Options
4) Type in -force-d3d11
5) Click OK
6) Run the game like normal

Voila! Hopefully this helps anyone else struggling with this immensely frustrating bug/glitch/rendering error.

Thank you, I've been fighting with this problem myself for a while. That does indeed seem to have solved it.

Thanks for this! I was freaking out that my graphics card was dying, but this seems to have solved the issue. Looking forward to enjoying the game now.

No way... I honestly thought the glitches were a part of the game, since they usually showed up at times when things were weird... but thinking about it now, things are *always* weird in this game. Hopefully this will fix my random crashing issues too.
Thank you very much for this thread.

I remember playing this prior to the release of the fifth act and everything was fine so was a bit disappointed to see graphical glitches occur in the most recent version!

I did a couple of searches before for solutions but never found anything until now.

Thanks. This worked. Thought I was gonna get a seizure from all the flashing.
