I fired up the game recently and noticed that I now have graphical glitches which I didn't have before. I recently updated my nVidia driver from 391.35 to 418.81, but when I rolled that back I still have the same problem (I didn't reboot though, would that be necessary?).

Specifically, all craft in the tech library (and I assume in the game) have very low poly/bad texture thrust exhaust. Some of the custom craft seem to have their textures mis-applied nor not mapped properly. Finally while in a mission the backdrop is completely screwed, in that only a portion of a planet will show, for example.

Screenshots can be seen here: https://imgur.com/a/n3dICtP

Is it worth trying to reinstall XWA and the XWA Upgrade craft patch? Or are there other things I should try?

You can try the latest version of the hooks. The easy way to download them is to use XwaHooksSetup (see viewtopic.php?p=154911#p154911).

That seemed to do the trick! Thank you!

What is it about the new version of the hooks that made you think it would solve the problem?
