sometimes character models look like aliens out of deadspace. Sometimes my whole screen tweaks out from scenary vectors stretching.

Am I the only one in the world with this problem?

Tried a fresh install on another harddrive

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your graphics card?

Haven't seen that one before. Have you tried setting graphics really low? Have you tried changing your FOV?

Had recently updated through boosterdrive.

May try manually myself but skeptic it will fix stretch arm ragdolls. I have not done a lot of monkeying with FOV; have any recommendations before i shoot in the dark?

Have played with graphics settings but considering the game usually runs everything at max just fine, I have avoided stooping to bottom barrel settings. I did turn ragdolls to low and count to like only 10 in case ragdolls were causing me to crash with ragdolls sometimes turning into ragdoll aliens. I suspected this only because i never crashed when playing on a team deathmatch server which had less people and less ping. For all i know packet losses are causing me to crash with bad ping servers as only the Chicago servers seem to have a good ping for me. But its hard to tell because no big pop server has under a 120 ping for me. I have excellent internet before you go there. Will try bottom barrel graphics after manually monkeying with drivers.

Do i need to properly wipe the driver to properly reinstall it, and if so, how?

You can uninstall the driver through remove programs on Windows. Then you can just reinstall it from the Company's website.

I would only take the extreme cases for the first debugging attempt, e.g. no ragdolls at all, FOV at max/min. If that doesn't change anything you don't need to bother with fine-tuning.

We are not targeting magic numbers and random luck, but just want to see whether it makes any difference at all - for better or worse.

I don't know myself around Windows. Is there a chance that the DirectX version might be outdated?

I selected the clean install option from the thing i downloaded but it seemed to have saved my previous settings so im dubious about how clean the install was. Well come back witj weird ragdoll pics or good news.

Download your current drivers and save them on Desktop and then run this
https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
Let it uninstall, restart and then install the previously saved drivers again.

Not sure it will actually change anything as it may not be a driver problem but give it a shot.

Attempted, really good software, helped me to a proper clean reinstall.

Vectors still stretching.

Turned off ragdolls completely, game few minutes later to see if vectors will stilll stretching. Graphics are all currently set lowest possible.

turned all graphics right down. Did not seem to help at all. Vector strechign still occured, just not in the ragdolls. Also crashing seems unrelated to when random vector tearing occurs, but cant really tell.

Thinking about your FOV comment i decided to return everything to default wondering of the default fov worked best. game actaully lasted longer than when i had everything set to rock bottom. but still crashed, i been trying borderless window recently as it makes getting out of crash easier.

When in borderless window mode i had the option to properly restart program without force quitting first because the pop up mordhau crash box was actaully selectable now versus when doing fullscreen and crashiing. When i crashed a second time, and I selected 'send report and close' it returned to the screen of my previous crash, and I still had to forcequit that Mordhau application that was apparently running still somehow. Will try running again with defaulted settings as i may have been running two mordhau at once. Will play with FOV next.

What if super low fov helps? i cant really play like that even if it did help which I doubt it will, where would i go from there?

So far it seems that the settings don't really affect the issue much. For now I would assume that playing around in the settings won't get you anywhere.
No idea where to go from here... To me it's like a needle in a haystack. :-/

Do you have mods installed? Do you use some kind of tweak tool? Have you already tried reinstalling Mordhau or verifying the cache?

As said beggining of forum post i did fresh install on even a different hard drive.

Ill verify cache for kicks. I intuitively knew none of this would work amd it was some weird deeper problem. Migjt be UE 4 doesnt like my rig as i haven't played other ue 4 games

I play fine on deathmatch servers that have less ping and less people with all graphics high/ultra. But you know.. I want to join the frontlines. Also no one joins Chicago team deathmatch server so im stuck playing ffa

It be nice if I could talk to dev directly about this. Game crashes aside, i shoudknt have vectors morphing ragdols into dead space aliens. Sometime the ragdolls even walk around in the battle field die to their stretched legs supporting them in the air. Its kind of funny actually. And i had already done a clean reinstall on a seperate hard drive.

Oh I only wish lol

I tried refunding (steam) a while back but o had already "played it for 8 hours" which was mostly just me trying to get the game working.

All I can think is something hardware related, that's usually a sign that your GPU is not happy :(
