YouTube - Battlefield 1943 having fun Montage. (Buggs, weird, awesome kills and some fun!)

At 2:56 in the video it shows a weird floating cube, I was wondering if this was an easter egg or a glitch. I've seen the same cube on Wake Island before, but other people on my team could not see it. I also recently saw one on Guadalcanal that was black and kind of looked like a file cabinet. So DICE is this a Easter Egg or glitch, just curious.

Anyone else see these cubes?

I've actually seen that before, right after I exited from a tank. My guess would be that it's not an Easter Egg, but rather bad coding not hiding it.

I've played for a fair few hours and never seen that cube.

I've seen the same thing on Wake Island. Just a bit of bad coding like Apple stated.

I'm not sure if the cube is included with this, but the crazy black and white lines going all over the screen is certainly a shader problem.

I haven't experienced the cube, but my friend did yesterday. I've experienced the shader glitching personally.

I think that was what happened to me when I was flying the plane. It happens in Fallout sometimes, unless I'm mistaken.

I have seen around 3 white cubes floating around on my time playing.


Probably something to do with coding, like an object marker or something.

I know exactly what it is. It is the first person camera from a vehicle. This popped up for me while I was on Guadalcanal. I knew it was the tank camera because I got in the tank next to it, then got out of it and walked 'into' the cube, and saw the exactly same view except my gun was in my hand. It occurs when a vehicle is blown up. I don't know how it appears, but I know it is the 'camera' of the vehicles.

Yep, I've seen that graphical bug in both Fallout and BF43.

Yeah i get that one occasionally too, only usually lasts for a little while though. Usually by the time i get off the boat from the carrier its stopped

Probably mixed with bad coding in that spot, the tank does completely disappear...

Also when the screen gets messed up like that its called screen tearing.

Maybe totally off-topic (and keeping in the back of my mind it's "only" a small XBLA-title) but EA/DICE have been having problems getting their shaders right on almost everyt Battlefield released so far.

The buggiest was BF2 where sometimes 1 pixel would bleed out its edges and look like a 1000-stingy-see-monsters taking up the entire screen. It's follow-up (dunno, in the future game), had issues with AA-guns and some transports and now 1943 bugged.

Ow well, putting my trust in DICE (as coders) to eventually get it right for BF:BadCompany2 and ofcourse BF3!!!!:woop:
