Rainmeter 4.3: Transition-Update Leaves Ghosts of Old Characters

jptiger » March 19th, 2019, 1:39 pm

I'm looking specifically at the Network skin of Synkro (https://www.deviantart.com/bigfeh/art/Synkro-3-Suite-for-Rainmeter-447544226). It displays netowrk download and upload speeds. Since updating to Rainmeter 4.3, there's been this weird bug where the new numbers are layered on top of the old numbers, which stay in place. I made an animated GIF, which I think might be easier to understand than a written explanation:

I'm not getting that, nor has this ever been reported in the long beta cycle for 4.3.

I suspect an issue with your graphics driver.

Can you give us the information alluded to here:

Also, do you have Hardware Acceleration turned on in Rainmeter's Settings, and does it make any difference if that is on or off for you?

Thank you very much for the reply. I was forwarded here and after flipping this switch I have noted that indeed the hardware acceleration is conflicting with drivers for integrated Intel graphics card.

Several users have reported success with updating their Intel drivers to the latest version.
