Is anyone running XCOM with EyeFinity?

Tue Nov 13, 2012 2:57 pm

I just fired up XCOM for the first time and I'm getting really weird graphics problems on my 3x1 EyeFinity display. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem.

I'll try to get screenshots tonight. Mostly the problem is that the mouse isn't remotely close to the highlighted location and occasional rendered cutscenes are distorted and upside down. Bizarre stuff.

I had that problem to a smaller degree with my non-EyeFinity 7850, (Cat 12.7), but not the distorted cut-scene thing. Sorry I couldn't help more.

I was hoping for another patch because I also had a replicable bug that would present an interface with no usable action icons if you switched characters while in firing mode with gun without enough ammo (I think that was the sequence of actions).

Supposedly one will be out soon :/

I'm not going to try iron-man if I can completely goof up my game by doing actions in the wrong order.

I had this exact issue in the demo and, after some post-launch reading that it wasn't fixed, is also the only reason I haven't bought the game yet. I'm a bit surprised the guys at WSGF haven't found a fix yet (see WSGF page).

edit: I must also say this is the weirdest Eyefinity related bug I've encountered so far. All the others I've seen were things like distortion, clippling, missing UI etc. For me, it was just upside down and that was it.

Did you recently increase your font size???? I remember BFBC2 mouse pointer would be nowhere near where it was on the screen.....125% was the max for bfbc2
