:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


Since the update earlier today, I’m not getting flickering of strange red dots and fragmented looking UI stuff in some parts of the screen. In particular, the unit queue will often flicker strangely around the progress bar and unit/tech icon, and when the pause menu is open, there’s a few millimeters at the top and bottom of the screen covered in flickering red dots.

@Felizon89, is this able to get looked at? It’s really annoying. Thanks.

Of course.
Could you tell me what’s your GPU? Are you experiencing performance issues since the latest update?
Could you also try disabling mods?

Intel(R) Iris (R) Xe Graphics

No, this seems to be the only thing.

Done, it still occurs, even with every single mod disabled:

This is the only report we had with this specific issue, did you try other games?
