has anyone else experienced graphic card glitches when using the covetor mining ship?
it only seems to happen with this particular ship,

i get what is called artifacts ( flashing triangles) all over my screen when i use this ship, the event is repeatable so its not a rare event.

i serched for a related post , nothing found.
does CCP know of this problem with some ships?

this is my setup,

>> GeForce GT 740

Didn't even know they still made GT cards as high as the 700 series! Neato.

Yeah, I have a 660ti and a 1060, both EVGA 3 and 4gb versions respectively. I tried my old drivers, new drivers, and fresh install new drivers with BOTH cards seperately, and in other machines. It's only happening on my machine for some reason, but it's with both video cards.

I'm flying a Hulk with a caldari skin (the dark grey one).

I've also experienced a lot of freezing (and crashing on my desktop) when using the fitting window in particular, but also randomly while playing the game normally. I am using two clients, and two monitors. No idea if that's even a factor.

I've been diagnosing this with CCP for the last like 2 weeks through email tickets, and I still havent found a fix. I can't play on my desktop right now other than to collect crash logs

Also interesting character name.
