  1. Hi, I just installed oblivion..and for some reason the shadows form the light are really messed up.

    Specs
    x1800xt
    e6300
    1 gig ddr2 pc6400

    Guessing its a driver problem?..Maybe need a patch?

    Take a look at this patch HERE. Apparently one of the fixes is to do with shadows not lining up correctly. Check the patch release notes under bug fixes.

    Regards Howard :)

    Patch and latest video driver fixed everything for me, as well as $1,000.00 in upgrades.

    I reinstalled the drivers and the patch, and that solved the lighting problem..but now the tree's are glitchy. I guess i will have to try putting it on lower settings, but i figured this setup should run it on high..

    If nothing else, drop the shadow complexity to a lower setting. If that's possible
