Broken graphics?

0

Hello!
I bought Supreme Commander FA on steam today, installed the game and played a bit of skirmish for a VERY short time, but the game both looked and worked fine.

I decided to get FAF to be able to play multi, have patches, etc. I did all the required stuff und then I created a lobby (wanted to play with the AI) and when the game loaded in, it showed this:

Some broken UI und a yellow filter or whatever this is. I do meet the game's requirements. Original SC FA works fine.. Any ideas?

Can you post you game log or even better post it in the #technical-help channel in the FAF Discord 🙂

I’ve seen this issue before. Can’t remember exactly what the cause and solution was off the top of my head. I would guess missing or corrupted textures tho. Did you try rehosting a few times?

Did you try joining a game to see what happens? Welcome to FAF btw. I too am a recent vanilla convert and it's way better over here.

I see old textures that are not used in FAF, had client even installed patch?

*C:\ProgramData\FAForever\gamedata* check this path, are there .nx2 files?

Well, I can't seem to be able to find ProgramData \ FAForever, I only have "Program Files" and a "Downlord's FAF Client" folder which does not have the .nx2 files (nor a gamedata folder). Even the non faf's supreme commander files don't have those.

Nevermind? I somehow fixed the game? I literally have no idea how the hell have I done that. I've just turned off the client, played a bit of total war napoleon, opened the client again and boom - the UI works and the game is fine now..

What the hell?

May be first time client didn't install files of game, thats why.

Maybe, the most important thing is that I can finally play the game! Thanks for all the help.

ProgramData is a hidden folder
