    Sorceress & Annoying Flashing Screen

    This Q is not about sorceress strategy. I couldn't find a proper subforum to post it, so I'm posting here.

    Anyway, I'm having great fun with my cold/lightning sorceress in SP. When I play D2 as sorceress, the PC screen periodically flashes. It sort of looks like lightning from the sky flashes in the D2 world. I think it started to happen in the Act 5 in the normal mode (now I'm at Act 3 in Nightmare).

    My Qs are:
    1. Is the screen supposed to flash? When playing as other characters (eg Amazon, Assassin), I don't see the screen flash on the same PC.

    2. If it is indeed an effect, is there any way to turn it off?

    Don't cast Thunder Storm?

    I do use Thunder Storm. But, what I am talking about is that the "whole screen" periodically flashes even when Thunder Storm is not sending a bolt of lightning. Is it supposed to be like that?

    Yeah, it does that. :smiley:

    I just tested it using a Thunder Storm ormus' on my cold sork. If it bothers you, you can stop casting it. Unless you've got a funky maxed TS build I doubt you'd miss the little damage it does.

    Thanks a lot. I even changed the lighting quaity to "low" just to see what would happen but TS still made the whole screen flash. I guess I'll stop using it. Luckily, I've invested only 3 skill points in it.

    Just saw this effect, found it annoying, and searched this thread on google. Sigh. It is pretty nifty as long as you're not trying to play through it. Feels like I'm taking an extended blink.

    Yeah, the flash is the whole point of a lightning sorc.
