Flickering on the bottom of screen.

OS: Windows 10 1909
Version: 2019.1.2
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400
Processor: Intel i5-4200 1.6ghz

The problem is happening with all of the aircraft, when i load the game up and sitting on the runway i get a flickering near the bottom of the screen. and sometimes it just about comes up 1/4 of my screen. I only get this when i run Flightgear. I would post a screenshot but i could not capture it.

Probably overworked graphics card, the Intel doesn't have resources like a gaming-grade GPU does.

Can you check over flightgear menu > debug > clicle gui style. I want to know if could be related with the flick.

If probably overworked graphics card, as Thorsten said. In that case is recommended the use of -- prop in the launcher to disable Environment Options. [url] ... nt_Options
[/url] I'm not sure if exists a single --prop to disable all environment. So you should use a --prop for every Env option you want as disable, 3d clouds, fog, and so on. And give it a try.
