ISSUE
Black Flickering with SLI Enabled

DESCRIPTION

Hello,
Game flickers in the Tune/Market/Upgrade Scenes with SLI Enabled.
Also annoying Flickering in some races with "extra race rounds", first race no problem, second race( flickering begins and third race very annoying black flickering )

I tested with different Graphic settings ( all low/grass disabled ) but still flickers.
Disabling SLI = no problems but i have to set lower resolution for 60+ FPS

Can this be fixed please?
Most races without extra Rounds working without any problems  :)
But races where the map only loads ones i have flickering in the second race.

Thanks

ps: SLI Scales almost perfectly /twice performance in 4K

Just out of interest, have you tried any of the compatibility bits?

Hi,

nope, using default nvidia settings
nvidia driver 398.18

Using Different SLI Bits would Broke the SLI Performance i think.

What happens if you go Windows mode ( Alt-Enter ), does flickering stop?

If still flickering, what happens if then go back to full screen mode, does flickering stop then?
Flatout Joint, where the mods were.

i5 2500 i7 8700, 16GB, Nvidia 660 960 1060 6GB, Win 10 64bit, DFGT Wheel

nope, dosen't matter if fullscreen or not.
from fullscreen to window and to fullscreen still flickers.

note: Normal Races working fine but tune/market/upgrade scenes are flickering and also singleplayer races where the map only load ones is flickering

I don't have this flickering. Have you tested to see if it is AA or AF related? I have both turned off so just a wild shot in the dark.

If you don't have flickering you don't have SLI enabled or isn't proper working...


Normal races are working fine but not events ( after second race the map begins to flicker ).
And also Upgrade, Buy Car scenes are flickering.

Sli is definitely enabled and working and I also definitely don't have the flickering, but I'll leave you to it.

that's actually strange, no Flickering with SLI Kepler?

i tested with two 980 and two 1080 ti and i had flickering on both Systems.

im gonna try it with two Kepler cards later

I can reproduce this myself. Running currently x2 970 FTW's in SLi. Getting the same black flickering both in the menu and in game were there are 2 & 3 races, the first race being just fine and normal. I have tried all the OP has tried with the same results.


I never reported as I had hoped it was an early-access, pre-release issue that probably only affected me. However it's continued throughout the release. It is an issue as it causes quite the flicker when it's happening. I've noticed myself that it's worst during Sunset type weather conditions.

I get Headcache, i coudln't never finish an Event Race with this Flickering, i could disable SLI but i don't wan't play this game in full hd  :P

Haven't played this game for a long time but 2 years ago with first time SLI Support the game wasn't flickering at all.
