Windows 7: Edge stripes/waves in games?

26 Apr 2013   #1

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Edge stripes/waves in games?

Hello, in every game i'm experiencing wavy stripes like textures as in these few examples:
When i move in game, they seem to flick/move/wave. And they are also less visible/smaller when i'm closer to them. I didn't have this problem few months ago. All of my drivers are up to date.
My system specs are :
Athlon II X2 250
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2
512MB GeForce GTS 250

Hi Borkas,

I just noticed this thread had no replies so I figured I would chime in. That looks like a Anti-Aliasing (AA) problem too me. Go into the Video Setting / Options menu and make sure this is enabled. Just take note that some games do not have this option (mostly console ports) so in that case you might have to go into your graphics card software and enable it from there. Also make sure that the resolution of the game matches the resolution of the monitor that you have.

Let us know if it has been resolved or if you have any more questions.

Games Which Have Lost Their 'Edge'
Which games do you think were brilliant, and now have lost their shine? The Call of Duty and Halo series are both games, in which the story line has fallen apart, are just FPS's which rely too much on online game play. What are your guy's opinions? (:

Is there any way to change or remove the stripes overlay of Windows 7 Aero? Not the transparency, just the stripes effect.
