  1. Thank you so much for the help. In the end I've just resorted to borrowing another laptop and things looks awesome on that!
  2. The other prototypes render correctly, but are somewhat slow. According to dxdiag, the chip I've got is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD (Core i5). I went to the Intel site to double check I had the latest drivers and found the following info: Product Detected IntelĀ® HD Graphics Current Driver Installed A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer. So it looks like I won't be able to get any better drivers. So it probably means that my graphics chip just can't render the game properly. Thanks so much for your help, but I guess it's looking like there's not really a solution for my current laptop. Will need to seriously look into upgrading since I want to play Black Lake!
  3. I'm also having issues with the graphics for Black Lake. I'm only running on a laptop that's almost 3 years old. So I don't have anything fancy at all. I'm having serious lag issues with some of the games, but that's obviously just issues with my laptop not being powerful enough, so I don't think I"ll be able to get them fixed. For Black Lake all of the 3D graphics come out in a horrific bright green hue (see attached screenshot). It kind of looks like a negative of an old film photo or something and it really trips me out. I've seen other people's screenshots of the game and they look beautiful. I simply can't bear playing the game when it looks so horrible and I can't really tell what's going on properly either! I've tried as many of the suggestions above as possible: making sure I have the most up to date versions of everything (e.g Direct X), finding the graphics settings and making sure everything was set to "use application settings". I can't find anywhere to turn MSAA off, but I suspect my laptop isn't actually capable of that in the first place and my issue seems a bit different to the above. So..... Is this the universe telling me I need a new computer or can anyone suggest something I might need to install/update/change?
  4. Great update. I sometimes forget how important audio is to making a believable world and a great game. It's fantastic to see audio getting the attention it deserves. Fascinating to learn more about it and how programmers create great tools for the dev team. Thanks for the update
  5. I'll take him... err... I mean: I'll take Charcoal grey!
