I've run in to a weird graphical bug in QfG 5: the screen will darken while I'm walking around the map, but Silmaria, combat screens, etc. are always in broad daylight. Also, when I go underwater, a sort of rippling effect will continually cross the screen.

The game loads fine, and I haven't noticed any other problems. I've experimented with the settings, but nothing seems to help. I'm running the game on my laptop, with Windows 7 and an Intel card.

Any suggestions?

I'm having a similar problem as well..
Running on Windows 8 with Intel HD Graphics Series.. Most of the game runs smoothly but there are a few problems.

Things that are not working properly
- Screen not dark during night hours when in town or combat (but is on world map)
- Underwater has a rippling line going from right to left and being underwater crashes game fairly easily
- Stamina doesn't drain while swimming, so swimming skill does not go up no matter how long character swims
- When I watch fights in arena, the characters just dance and circle endlessly without ever attacking
- Possibly other things as well (I'm only on Day 3)

I have tried minimizing all settings as well as running in several different compatibility modes (as admin) but nothing changes these problems so far..
Anyone fix this one yet?
Apologies for the gravedig. Same issues. I noticed the failing day/night cycle, but that one's easy to ignore. The underwater distortion is not... I'm attaching a 'shot. And the perma-crashes make it downright gamebreaking. Any non-obvious ideas?

I don't have any ideas for fixes, but I will say that you don't have to go underwater. There is only one time in the entire game you will ever have to go underwater. You will know when that time comes. There isn't even any point in grinding your swimming stat. As long as you can swim, that is good enough for QFG5. The only reason to grind it would be to get a head start for QFG6, but it's very unlikely that there will ever be a QFG6.

I don't think it ever really does get dark at night. As long as other things change the way they're supposed to change, you're fine there. What's supposed to happen at night is some businesses close down, other businesses open early in the evening but then close at midnight, the music changes, and you fight the night monsters. If all of those things happen, then the game is working fine.

I have no answer at all for the arena thing.

Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, I'm right at that point where I do have to go underwater. That's why I called it gamebreaking... I don't even make it past the first screen without CTD.
