Hmm, I really don't know why I'm experiencing these problems because I've updated every driver possible, and all of this doesn't fix it (and I have no problems at all in other 3d games). Hey, I wanna add a question to all users in the forum: Do you see missiles and gunfire in combat? If not, look at the effects folder in the game directory. There you should see all the graphics that SHOULD be displayed in combat normally. Maybe some hardcore strategy fans simply didn't notice the graphical problems. All files are OK in my copy of the game, but I simply don't get the effects. It seems the graphics card isn't able to display them. It's simply **** that I'm not able to experience the game the way it was meant to be. I hope Aaron is able to fix these problems somehow, and I'm willing to give him every information about my PC he might need.

I know I have saw the missles from planes, and I am pretty sure I see ll the other effects,...but I will check later on to be sure.

OK, I really don't know what causes these errors. I've tested adjusting the settings of my graphics card, but that also doesn't fix it. My grapics card is Shader 2.0 capable (also Direct X 10 capable. And, as I've stated before, I've tested the game on another PC with an old Geforce MX 100/200 graphics card and experienced the same glitches there. I should test it out on a newer PC when I get the chance.

Oh no, I've finally found a working new AGP Catalyst driver, and it does improve performance in 3D games (it's a driver from december 20th, 2010) and fixes some graphics glitches in other games, but ****, it still doesn't fix the glitches in World Supremacy. Man, I want a working graphics fix! This rendering simply can't be more complex than 3d post processing effects stuff and things like that (the graphics in World Supremacy are very retro), which my graphics card can handle. I'm really getting annoyed. I can't do anything anymore to fix this problem. You have to introduce some kind of alternative rendering mechanism in combat. I think I can't even see the cool nuke effects on the main map! I want real combat effects, not just some expanding lines and strange dots. This simply looks bad! Please do something, Aaron! Do I have to give more proof or stuff like that?

Another question: Look at the combat screenshots at the first page: What are the unit symbols in the upper right corner of the screen for? Is this the turn sequence?

Yes, I believe this is the turn sequence...

OK, a new patch is out. I'll try it, but I don't think Aaron adressed the graphical problems yet. I'll keep you updated how the game runs with the new patch. Hopefully he's able to fix the problems.

Hey, to anyone having the same problems as I do: Just set your Windows language settings to English (USA). It was caused by different number formats in the German language settings I had set (cause I'm German). So everyone not from the USA or Britain with different number formats could will have these problems. Just try it!

You can also just change the number formats to the same as in the English (US) and English (GB) settings (custom regional settings). Doing this has not just fixed the errors, but also improved performance on my PC.
