Lately ive been trying to get some new MMO's. I was a big EQ fan back in the day so i decided to try out EQ again since it was F2P. When i open it up I see doubles of everything. A reddish version and a bluish version. No lag in the game but the display is ugly. After messing with the preferences for awhile ingame, i gave up and uninstalled it.

So i try different games, and this has happened every time i download a F2P MMO. It has happened with EQ2, DC universe, Perfect World Online, and most recently Star Wars The Old Republic.

I dont know what it is, my computer should have no issues playing the game, and i have updated my graphics driver and everything. In a lot of these free 2 play MMO's you have to have a subscription to send Tickets to GM's which is dumb imo.

This is what im seeing:


Now ive tried everything from lowering the graphics in game, to playing in windowed version but i have gotten nothing beneficial out of it.

This is the info on my PC:
