This is a suggestion to fix graphics issues for AMD users. Some shaders do not work properly and there is no clear solution how to fix that.

My idea is to just implement a software rendered mode as an option. Of course, I have zero experience if switching from rendering shaders on GPU to CPU requires big or just tiny changes to the engine. I am aware that CPU rendering will be slower, but I would much rather have stuttering effects than completely broken or missing effects.

Which "some" shaders? I'm only aware of one.

Also to enable CPU rendering jsut uninstall your opengl drivers heh ;) In any cases CPU rendering is really not feasible, it will choke and choke HARD, because exactly of shaders. CPUs are just not meant to do that much parallel processing

Multiple types of auras are not working correctly for me. I don't know which ones exactly are they, but in the character creation screen Alchemists show up as either a yellow or blue rectangle. Summoners are green rectangles. Corruptors show up with a half black and half red square. And Cursed are dark rectangles.

How would I uninstall OpenGL drivers? I think they are built in on Windows 10 :S

No idea ;)

Please do that for me:
Start the game, and without fully exiting the game try to generate as many of those bugs as possible.
Then exit the game.
Then post me somewhere the te4_log.txt file generated, with luck I can fix some of those thanks to it
