Thanks @Agrargorn we’ll look out for this.

Does the flickering persist after restarting Darktide, or a PC restart?

Sadly no. I did verfiy the data files via Steam, thats why my response took a moment, restarted my pc and tried again, the result is the same like in the video
I’m attaching my dxdiag in case it might help.

update: I tried to fiddle a bit with FSR and Anti Aliasing. FSR 2.0 was set on “quality” and AA was set “off”, not sure if this was prior, but apparently I can either activate AA or FSR, not both. Turned FSR 2.0 off and AA to TAA and FXAA to test the result, and the flickering is gone. So it looks like it hast something to do with these options, hope it helps, because this was definitely not a Problem prior the patch

Ah good spot! I’m glad you were able to identify the cause of the issue. Thank you for sharing your findings!

Another thing to add, tried to capture the result with AA on TAA, FSR 2.0 off:

wanted to look into the difference, when turned FSR 2.0 back on and suddenly it all looks normally again (this is with FSR 2.0 on again and AA off):

so there definitely was something off, but it can be solved with the good old “have you tried turning it off and on again?” solution

somehow I feel like I needlessly bothered you people at the tech support…
