  3. Purple texture glitch?
4 years ago#1
So I took a break from Skyrim for a couple days, to get myself back into the real world, and when I come back to play, there are weird texture glitches all around me. Instead of detailed objects, such as armour, grass or shrubs, it shows a basic shape, smoothed out with a purple/blue-ish tint to it. Does anyone know what causes this?

Thanks in advance.

I had that happen once, but only after I had been playing about 5 or 6 hours straight. I saved the game, quit to desktop, and when I reloaded the save from a fresh restart of the game, everything was fine.

Yea I usually get this when I've been playing for a long stretch. Quitting/reopening steam generally fixes it. If that doesn't work, Verify the game cache in steam and that should fix anything

Yeah, it happens to me too if I play for long periods of time, and if I keep going, there is a good possibility the game will soft crash to the desktop (like I pressed Alt-F4 or something). I think it may be some sort of small memory leak that worsens over time, but usually just closing and opening Skyrim again fixes it.

Yeah but this was the first time I had played it in over a day...and I played for less than 30 minutes. -_-

If restarting isn't fixing it then verify the game files.

I've had it happen for trees (turned the leaves into blue sheets) and wood (turned all of a certain type of wood purple)

Go to your Steam library, right click Skyrim, go to properties--local files---verify integrity of game cache
