Hi, when I first installed skyrim in my newly formatted windows 8.1 with catalyst 14.12 there were flickering water (specially rivers) and fires, also a purple mist on loading screens.
Standing in dragonsreach watching to the fire and waterfalls was a complete flicker party. This probably happens with 4xxx-7xxx cards, but I'm not sure. I have this specs:
Amd hd6770 1gb GDDR5
Athlon 2 x3 3.3Ghz
4Gb ram ddr3
500gb western digital blue hdd
Just wanted to let know anyone with this problem that is completely solved by downgrading to windows update provided driver, just uninstall with DDU, re-enable automatic driver downloads and let windows do it's own thing. It might even have reduced z fighting, but with all the flickering before it is hard to tell.
I also have a few questions about the step guide, mostly about joining texture packs and missing mods from the list, should I post under general?
EDIT: The installed version right now as of 12/13/2014 is the catalyst driver packaging version:14.9 13.251.9001.1001-140704a-173665E-ATI, this is working correctly, while catalyst 14.12 is not.
