That's basically what the game looks like to me. The texture it uses to 'fill' those odd areas vary from time to time (it switches if I open up another menu for instance) but it's just all kinds of screwed up. Even the projectiles I fire and their 'explosion' use that texture. The floors texture differs depending on which I angle I look at it from, like there's another texture on top that the vision clips through from a certain angle.

Anyway, any hints/tips on what I might do to fix this? I'm running 1.4 NOCD on Windows XP.

I have a GeForce 7600GT, using the 196.21 drivers. I've tried using older drivers already, but that didn't do anything.

I just looked and it seems to be the same wherever. The texture it picks looks to be random but it's always messed up like that. I also tried reinstalling earlier, but that didn't work out. It does this in both D3D mode and OGL.

You aren't using anything special in your command line are you? One thing I suppose would be worth trying is seeing what happens when you use some of the memory/video tweaking command line options.
Give -lowmem or -superlowmem a try, and see if it improves. Otherwise try -himem -highvidmem -nomultitexture and -nocompress to see if any of them help.
