    Cool Internal view - visual glitch while absorbing.

    Last week (when I was finally getting back into HD) an odd visual glitch started happening each time I absorbed during graces. It's as though the absorb time is slowed down drastically. This results in the entire internal view being blurred (somewhat like those drunk driving ads where they stack the empty wine glasses together...) for a long period. During which time I get motion sick, (never have before with internal view).

    I thought I heard something about this way, way back, but a search didn't bring anything up. Anybody else experience this? I've got a video of it which I'll put up.

    It's always been a glitch problem for me when using reverse view while playing online.
    I thought it was common knowledge not to use it, just like Voice Chat, which has the same effect.....just kills the game online, if not freezing up your console completely, then needing a hard reset :-

    Cool

    This is not while using reverse view, this is during forward view, and is now happening to me during all online racing.
    I've had this happen before but it was only temporary and only happened occasionally during a race.

    Is there nothing anybody has done to fix this? I'm certainly not going to change racing view so please, nobody get all smart and say that.

    If nothing else I'll have to stay racing in Flash where I can still tell what I'm doing during the absorb.

    maybe delete > rebuild database > reinstall

    If that doesn't work I'd say there's either a software glitch you couldn't fix without custom firmware, or much less likely, there's a hardware issue. Or something I have absolutely zero knowledge of.

    Cool

    ick....I hope I don't have to do that...I may try the database rebuild if this doesn't go away in a few days. I've never had it happen constantly like this before so I'm still hoping it might magically vanish.

    Anyway, here is the video for anybody who doesn't know what we're talking about:

    That looks normal to me?

    I thought that's exactly what is supposed to happen when you absorb. Are you sure you just haven't changed the ship you normally use and don't like the new animation?

    Cleaning your set might be a good start, looks dirty around the weapon icon placeholder to me. :')

    Also, music name please.

    Cool

    I just noticed, I forgot my nephew had hold of my camera the other day...huge smudges. (The crumby TV set is fine.) Anyway, it's not the normal delay, it's about three times longer than normal. Perhaps I should have recorded a phantom race instead, you can tell how bad it is much more - it takes an entire corner to absorb, and the vision is significantly impaired for the entire corner, making it fairly difficult (I want to say impossible but it's not!) to go around a corner cleanly.

    Normally, I press absorb, and I'd guess it takes under a second for the absorb. Watch that first absorb - it takes 2 seconds for the visual effect.
    On slow classes it's not a big deal, but on Phantom it makes the game nearly unplayable on tracks other than Moa or Anulpha.

    (And yes I am using a different ship, but was using Qirex before this began happening. It only delays like this when playing online.)

    Ooh, he has more! Cheers.

    Erm, one thing I can suggest is reinstall the game/ delete the data from the Game Data folder. Not your saves though, don't go doing that.

    It's been mentioned before, but it's all I can think of. I'd also go asking on the official Playstation forums, because you never know.
