I'm back into STO and was ready to enjoy the game, and now I have a very good system, so I run everything without a problem. Graphics looks pretty, and the game is very stable. There is only one problem I've noticed, when I enter a planets atmosphere (like Earth) the screen turns brown and then black. The game still keeps going, I can still control the ship, in fact I can even turn the ship around and once I leave the atmosphere everything is normal again. Same problem goes for Defera, but not just the planet's atmosphere. As soon as I warp in the screen turns black, I can control the ship, can even warp out to leave into sector space, but I can't see anything on Defera's orbit. The fact that I can still see the GUI suggests that this may have to do with an atmospheric effect, or may be some texture. Does anyone know how to solve this problem or encountered something similar?
P.S. All my drivers are up to date, and I have no other problems with the game what so ever. I have 4 GB of RAM, an Intel 3000 HD GPU (it's integrated, but handles the game with no problems), Intel i5 dual core with hyper-threading and Windows XP.
