I am experiencing a problem that I have not seen mentioned in any threads so far. I get extreme visual artifacts in the form of plans of random, striated color flickering through the scene.
They appear increasingly worse at higher resolutions, whether graphics settings are high or low, and regardless of whether vsync is enabled. They appear mostly frequently when there is splashing water or arcing electricity, like the first room.
The artifacts do not appear when when taking screenshots or movies with Fraps regardless of the resolution. They still appear when Fraps is not running. Also, They do not occur in any other recently released game, including Stalker, Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 2.
