(Solved) Annoying red and blue glowing problem

Filed under: Snapshots — Signore Iredell @ 4:30 pm

Quick tip: Disable “Show updates” in the Client menu (CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-U)

While I’m usually on Linux, sometimes I get in SL from a Windows system. I recently upgraded the graphic card of this Windows-based system – now it’s a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200, with recent drivers. I thought I would get rid of this annoying effect with the upgrade, but it’s still here. I’m going to contact Live Help right now and point them to these snapshots, because I don’t even know how to describe the effect 😦

  3. I have solved the red and blue haze problem but now it has to another…All my shoes look gold and I have white patched in my hair. With certain clothes my skin is mottled. Also the colors, pink,white and maroon overtake other colors
