Shame the Repair did not resolve the problem on the PC client. Good luck.Same pink issue? I am guessing it is related. Though it seems at least for one guy once Repaired and with Mac workaround he was OK.I'm having the same issue with my Win8 PC. It's also a Xeon however with "2 processors." I would guess this is part of the issue since I haven't encountered anyone else with the same problem.
I am not sure what you could use on PC but othe workaround on a dual CPU Mac Pro is using Apple's developer tool XCode and one of it's apps to disable the cores on one of the CPU, which allows it to run presumably as it is now effectively single CPU. The thread is here for reference.
Yes, the pink/purple issue, where many textures are replaced with a pink surface and a black X through the texture, similar to the screenshot above. For the most part it's only on some of the character models, but occasionally the surrounding terrain and structures. The repair process didn't solve the issue. I'll look for a PC workaround.
You could also try trashing the ShaderCache.cooked file as it stores information and can get corrupted or store corrupted data, though I think it's just shaders not textures from the name.I crashed and when I relaunched the launcher updated (not the game) and then when I logged back in the pink textures are back... Back to repairing
Doing some web searches it looks like this has happened to other elder scrolls games and means missing textures or the texture file has become corrupted. I wish I knew which data file this was happening to.
Edit: After repairing textures appear to be ok again.
The pink colour generally signifies some missing or corrupted textures. Try the Repair function.EDIT: This had never happened to me until this last patch 1.1.2.
I'm having same problem (PC), and am not very computer savvy.
Not only am I getting purple people eater NPC's, the client will crash when attempting to log out/in, giving me an error report screen for Zenimax.
Processor: AMD Athlon II x4 640 3.00GHz
Do I need to do something with my processors too? If so, exactly how do I do so?
@SilentVigil - Could you try running a repair on your game client and see if that solves the problem?
Is this on Mac or PC? Sounds more like the PC issue.@SilentVigil - Could you try running a repair on your game client and see if that solves the problem?
I repaired and it seemed to work for a bit but the problem is back again, worse, after a while it gets worse and worse till it finally crashes and nearly freezes my midrange computer up.
Seems like a memory leak.
Still the Mac Support sectionHey all. Same problem for me after the craglorn patch. I notice that if I play through the pink people glitch, the game will crash anyways. Tried the repair tool and it seems to delay the glitch for a few more minutes, but it still occurs quite frequently.
I'm on windows 8 32bit, with an AMD HD series graphics card. I noticed everyone else with the pink people glitch also has an amd card. Is it possible this could be a video card issue?
