I just got this game and I am creating my character. When I get to the appearance selection mode, the portrait looks fine until I slide any sort of slider and then the whole face in the portrait messes up. I am so picky about these kinds of things like the character portrait and won't start the game until the problem is fixed. I have searched the forum and found no official solution. I meet all the System Requirements so I don't know what the issue could be. Any help?

Messed up how?
I just changed my personal arsenal to fifteen Metal Gear Ray...... And I'm looking for a target. Who wants to be one? You?

When any slider is moved, several parts of the face in the portrait turn black as if the face is a puzzle and pieces have been taken out of it. I'll upload a screenshot in a minute...

Looks like your messing with the tattoo slider.

Never had that problem even once. Odd that some would be experiencing that. Say, what's your video driver version?

I think he's just seeing the tattoos on the face based on the screenshot.

Unless he can provide a different screenshot that will show the errors.

Does this problem persist with a new character creation? Try another one. See if it sticks with a male character or a female character.
