Alright so I had no problems when playing FFXIV a couple months ago. But I just reinstalled it and tried playing it today and my character is all messed up. It has spots all over it that are blank and glitchy looking with horizontal lines that cone out of it, and this goes for all NPCs and other player characters ingame.
My card is as follows:

ATI Radeon HD 4200

I tried updating it but no update was needed. I also downloaded the beta version and still had no luck. I messed around in the FFXIV configuration with shadow and texturing, but nothing seems to be working. I have no idea why I am having this problem now when just in March I played FFXIV with zero problems. Can someone please help me out? Thanks.

Try a fresh insall of your driver. Not sure if AMD has a driver wipe option in their files like Nvidia does, if not you'll have to look up how to do a clean driver install.

How old is your card? Is XIV the only game that has artifacts in it? Random graphic artifacts are sometimes symptoms of a dying video card. I knew one of mine was about to bite the dust when my mouse pointer suddenly turned into a blue square...
