GPU Driver Version: 22.3.1

While playing the game on the campaign map I'm seeing a grid-like pattern constantly all over the map - sometimes it shows up in other areas, too. It's been in multiple versions now over several patches and I've seen nobody else posting any solutions about it, so I'm confused as to how it's still unresolved, a year after I started playing again. That's in image number 1 as seen below.

Just now I played two battles. The first battle had an issue where looking at the horse my character was mounted on provided a hell of a glitch where random graphics effects appeared to spawn out of it's head. My only way of not seeing it was to dismount and run away from the horse. That's in image number 2.

In the last battle, the graphics suddenly switched to what looks like a filter, with nearly everything covered in an all-encompassing black, with only the manes and tails of horses showing up as white. It also had an effect when I moved the camera around my character, producing after-effects. That's in image number 3 below. I've seen this happen in previous patched versions and sometimes it went away by moving the camera wildly or just at some random point through a battle. Another apparent glitch that has been around for a while and not fixed.

My system is not overheating, I run MSI Afterburner and typically during a battle the GPU is hitting around 70c. That's typical for any demanding game that it's running these days. The CPU is usually sitting somewhere in the mid 50c range. I'm not seeing any such effects or glitches in any other game and I'm not having issues with crashing or instability. It's just Bannerlord causing problems.

The first one is related to the anisotropic filtering value governed by the AMD driver tool. Please check the AMD software on which value it is currently set.
The second one can happen after long gameplay sessions. Do you remember how long did you play the game before experiencing it? Also, do you have a guess on how frequently it happens?
The third one generally happens when the camera is underwater. Was this the case?


Thanks for replying. I checked the Radeon control panel and Anisotropic Filtering was set to 16x, I disabled it for Bannerlord alone and it did clear up a lot of it, but the lines are still there, just less visible. I've posted screenshots below.

I think I'd been playing for about twenty minutes to about half an hour at that point. And for the third, the battle was fought somewhere close to Nevyansk, which is a somewhat mountainous area near northwest Sturgia that, going by the cliffs behind the castle at least, is well above sea level. I've seen this issue before, in 1.6.3 at least, and sometimes moving the mouse around was able to fix it, or it fixed itself after some time during the batle, so I don't know if sea level is really at fault here and it's not some glitch that just happens to fix itself sometimes.

Are you sure the filtering is disabled? Both the game and the driver api can change this. Could you try disabling it on the game and enabling it to x8 on the driver api?
