5 special port caused permanently flickering screen

Post by Sharkeisha » Thu Jun 20, 2019 11:18 am

I was playing the new 5 special steam port, when I noticed that the flashing of the in-game character shadows became permanent monitor flickering in those areas no matter what application I use. Restarting my monitor doesn’t solve the issue

The flicker is a feature of the original arcade game. To smooth it out, turn on Flicker Filter in the Video Options.

Regarding any persistent issues with your monitor, we have never heard of this happening before, but there are many variables depending on details of the hardware, so that might be best answered by the manufacturer.
