I’m not sure if it’s the new patch or something else, but my graphics are pretty messed up since I logged in a few days ago. When I log in docked in a station the station background is black although the chat windows, station services, menus etc. are all ok. If I open the graphics settings and change the shader quality I can get the station background back. Sometimes it will spin, sometimes it will be stuck.
When I undock I can kind of see space but distances and positions don’t make any sense. My ship isn’t there and neither is the station. When I try to spin the view some icons move but not everything. If there is a station or structure in view it’s just a fixed picture on the screen that doesn’t change. Overview, controls, chat windows etc. work ok. I’ve found one thing that fixes it at this point which is to change the shader quality to high, apply the change then change the shader quality to low and apply the change. Everything will seem ok at that point but it will be messed up again if I dock or change the shader quality again. When I dock the screen becomes a messed up stationary external picture of the station and all the chats, etc. are gone. I don’t know what happens if I jump through a gate yet. The game is pretty much unusable for now.
I’ve tried restarting, clearing the cache from the client and verifying the shared cache in the launcher. Only other thing I could try is to completely delete the shared cache again and lose half my settings.
