Hello, all. I use a MacBook Pro. I use Firestorm (latest update). My graphics have been working fine (the computer is around 6 months old), until about three days ago. I got these colorful glitchy lines across the screen once I turned my graphics up to ultra, and I haven't been able to figure out how to get rid of them.
I tried all the different levels of graphics and they will not go away. The only way they go away is to turn off "Basic shaders" and then my entire screen turns blue ? I already played around with all the various settings, "Advanced lighting model", "Local lights", "Basic shaders", etc. etc. None of them will make the blue screen/glitchy lines go away.
The strange thing is, ALL of these options were working perfectly up until a few days ago. I would switch ALM on and off all the time, play with the graphics, switch around the settings with NO problems whatsoever. I haven't updated ANYTHING on my computer and nothing has changed, which is what confuses me.
I am also confused because my computer is pretty much brand new. I tried rebooting the computer multiple times and reinstalling Firestorm to the latest version.
Attached are some pictures of a grass scene. It is making it hard to see anything in-world.The blue one is with Basic shaders OFF, the glitchy lines is with Basic shaders ON. Both make it very hard to see anything.
Also: It is not a windlight thing. I have played with ALL the windlights and no difference. Also changed around the phototools options to no avail. I have a lot of experience with graphics settings/photo tools and Second Life/Firestorm in general and I am truly stumped. There doesn't seem to be any information on errors like this online either. I can't find any way to fix it. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks ?
EDIT: I have just downloaded the Second Life viewer and I am having NO issues. So it may not be my graphics card. But I cannot change from Firestorm, to be honest. I find other viewers impossible. Is there something I can do or fix to make Firestorm work again?
