Hi everybody,

in a somewhat larger fight i realized, that my missiles trails are not working correctly. To be precise: most time no missiles have their trailes (options are activated, yes!), but sometimes, for a short time (1-2sec) all missiles have their trails. And then they disappear agains.

I played a bit with the settings, i cleared the cache and the settings, but still have same problem.

My rigs are
Win 8 Pro, 64bit
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor
AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series
8 GByte Ram.

Any ideas?

same problem

i dont see any missile smoke trails. everything else is fine, i even see the tiny flame behind the missiles when they fly. just no smoke.
this goes for all missiles, the ones im shooting and those from other players or NPC ships.

i think i got this bug about 2 weeks back when i formated my hard drive and made a fresh install of everything, including eve client (with the new launcher).

i have submitted a bug report a couple of days ago. please look in to this issue soon because its very annoying...

Confirmed, I also had the issue. No matter what graphics options, even everything on and on highest.
Missile trails got back though when I selected in client settings (Eve Launcher) DX9. Then I could see trails again.
Hope it helps,
Cheers.

I ,too, have the same problem In addition, I am running R7 370 AMD video card. Wonder if the it has something to do with AMD cards/drivers.

To buck the popular trend, I began to Rage Start instead of Rage Quit.

...and every time I get another piece of Carbon, I know exactly what CCP is getting this Christmas.

Same here. And I'm also running the game with an AMD GPU. Launching with DX9 seems to do the trick for now (thanks Therion Black).

Reset down to DX9 does the trick; thanks for the info.

I found that missile trails do not show with the Crimson drivers, altho Crimson drivers also crash it for me so i have no reason to run them except for testing new ones and confirming they are borked too.

Hey folks,

Just wanted to give you a brief update on this issue, thanks to your bug reports we've managed to locate and fix the problem that was affecting missile trails for users with an AMD graphics card. Missile trails should hopefully be back with you when we release our next update.

Thanks again for your help with this issue.
