I mostly see them when I rotate my screen. They are there suddenly but also dissapear suddenly. Sometimes I see it on the whole landscape and other times just on some parts of it. And other times happily enough I don't see them. Examples:
here you can see it clearly:

Here only parts of the landscape are "striped":

Do more people have this problem? Is this because the graphics arent ready in this demo version or is it a problem with something else?

Can you tell anything about it ES? Is it a bug?

it aren't white stripes but some kind of grey/black thin kind of texture stripes. See the coast on the first image, there you can see it very well.

Yes I see now , but I never noticed them on mine . It must be something with your software , or perhaps computer settings.

Update your graphics drivers if you haven't already that usually solves most random graphics bugs. That and check what settings your grpahics drivers are set to under the control panel.

My vid card seems to be ok: ATI Radeon 9600 256MB

So it's not a very bad videocart. What do I have to do?

Well thats strange , your card is similar to mine but I dont get those stripes.

Did you check your settings at the control panel ?

i think about 3 things:

old drivers version
camera rotating effect
drivers filtering options

I see those ugly stripes too sometimes, with my ATI Radeon X800 Pro... So it looks like an ATI problem to me.

It could also be a mild artifact effect from overheating. If you're overclocking your video card, try undoing that. If nothing else works, maybe try running your PC without a case and see if that makes a difference.

It could be an ati problem. AoM had many ati issues aswel. I even remember that if you had a particulair ati card, the game didnt even run.

No, it's not an overheated computer, I also sometimes saw it in the beginning when I just started with exploring with my explorer.

Happily enough I now have it much less often (or I don't see it very well anymore).

Maybe ES knows something about this?

I am using a Geforce7800GTX and haven't got it. So it really might be ATI.

I was getting a different sort of striping problem when I had my CPU and memory overclocked... I'd get grey stripes coming off of the heads of some models. Bringing my CPU and RAM back to stock fixed this.
