    Has anyone noticed really strange looking graphics on games like Dungeon Hunter 4 and Asphalt 8? On DH4, there are graphical images all over the place. I installed it on my dad's Surface RT, and while it didn't run great, it did look normal. I'll try to get a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

    Here is another example on Asphalt 8 (I think there is supposed to be picture of a car behind the graphics, not a blank background):

    I'd appreciate anyone's input. I'm attempting to determine if it's early driver issues, or if I have a defective tablet. Thanks!

    Honestly I think it is a driver issue as I have had 3 now and even noticed the charms menu graphically glitch a number of times.

    I'm having the same problem with Bejeweled Live+ and Asphalt 8. Driving me crazy. I love my 2520 but I really want to play games on it. Funny thing is that Halo works great on it. We need to post this problem to Nokia Support. I'm going to today when I get a chance.

    Eugh that doesn't look too good, also if Halo works on it there must be another underlying problem...though I don't think it is hardware related as the L1520 has the same soc.

    I think it is an individual app issue that the developers will have to fix. I don't think it is a 2520 hardware problem.

    my 2520 does the same thing, but runs halo great, i wonder if it has to do with the hd resolution. they run fine on my 1520 but they are not running in hd because those games have not been optimized yet

    So this is what I've found on this issue.

    If you go into Device Manager and disable the Adreno 330, the graphics look good, but the games are HORRIBLY slow. Also, so far, it's all Gameloft games that I've had the issue with. My guess is that it's either a driver issue with the Adreno 330 on the Nokia 2520 OR it's a graphical engine issue of Gameloft games. Either way, it's definitely not something we can fix. It's only Qualcomm to release drivers, Nokia to release firmware, or Gameloft to release fixes for the games.

    Not exactly what I wanted to hear. Hopefully a fix comes soon. Bejeweled LIVE is just unusable for me.screenshot-2-.jpg

    I have sent Gameloft a support email but have not received a response as of yet. I will update once I get a response from them.

    Yeah, I put in an e-mail to Gameloft as well about a week ago and haven't heard anything.

    Thanks for posting about the update, jmerrey! I've just downloaded the update and can confirm that the issue is corrected on my 2520 as well. This is fantastic news, indeed!

    Now Gameloft just needs to release the same kinds of fixes for Dungeon Hunter 4, Asphalt 7 and Minion Rush.. :)

    I can confirm that Asphalt 8 is working beautifully.

    Edit: Except it seems to crash a lot :(

    Bummer. Hopefully it wasn't due to rushing a fix - that happens. But I'd rather they post something public saying "we know, our bad...working on it and will update in 1 week where we stand", etc.
