I'm getting rapidly flashing black areas on my game screen, usually parts of the terrain. The flashing/coverage seems to increase the longer I play. It happens no matter how low I set my video settings. I realize that I'm playing this on a pretty old computer, so I'll test it on a newer Macbook Pro once I install it there.

Mac OS X 10.11.5
2009 Mac Pro
2 x 2.26 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
20GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC
ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB

Are there any other cards affected by this issue other than the:
ATI Radeon HD 5770
AMD Radeon HD 6970M

I'm trying to narrow down the affected cards list.

Does this seem to be fixed in the current build (22158 or greater)? I believe I've put in a workaround for this issue. It's possible it's not aggressive enough of a fix though. Please mention the graphics card that you have and if the black line/weird geometry issue is fixed for you or not.

Oh, good catch! Shadows were limited as an attempt to fix this bug (around 6 months ago). I doubt that's needed. I'll double check things are good at the higher shadow levels and re-enable them (unless limiting is actually needed to prevent the flickering).
