This just keeps on happening. It makes it very hard to complete Nexus quests.
Today, while I found myself in a rare situation where after taking out the depots I had only a sliver of health left and the Walkers and quads were between me and my ship.
I did what any good survivor would do, I dug into the ground and just kept going --through caves and right down to the bedrock. Then the glitching started.
They were still chasing me firing at me through the ground and I was running with my terrain manipulator blasting away and praying to the Atlas to call off the chase when suddenly everything went belly up graphically (again!)
A Walker beam just missed me!
I couldn’t ready anything that came on the screen. I hit bedrock and noticed that the finally the horde of mechs were called off.
Fortunately I know where everything is so I could refresh my tool and dig my way back to the surface to call my ship.
Calling the Anomaly from the X-menu was pretty trippy and I was relieved I’d got the sequence right, from memory. Even then, I hardly recognised the old girl.
So how do I prevent this from happening?
Every time I log in I have to put my Options back the way I need them, and if I forget, (and I believe this is the case) this psychedelic hell happens!
I was sure one of the latest patch notes said they fixed the problem with options choices not saving. Nope. Still not saving.
So in order to keep enjoying the game do I have to go out and buy and install Windows 10 Pro? ($$$) I have Win 7 Pro +32 gigs of RAM.
Buy a better graphics card? ($$$) --Mine is an nVidia geForce 770. If that is my only recourse I will save my pennies and bite the bullet (to mix a couple of metaphors), but that will take months.
Maybe I will go see if there is a mod that fixes the Options bug that supposedly is already fixed.
Anyone have other suggestions? (help!)
