I've been expirencing some strange things on FS2004. They didn't start until i started playing in Multiplayer. The problem is that all the buildings and aircraft look like they were painted in water color. I don't know how else to explain it.
Any help is appreciated.
It sounds as if your either in safe mode or your video drivers have become corrupted.
Clean out the old ones and install new ones.
I'll give that a try RadarMan
