It is something that happens on some machines under windows 10.
We have not been able to fix it, because on none the machine configurations we tested it on we have been able to reproduce it.
If anyone can find a pattern under which circumstances the issue arises, please let me know using a PM. This info may help us to track it down.
This has NOTHING to do with Windows 10.
For me the same happened on W8. I ran Windows 7 when the game came out (v2) and I have had this issue since W8.
I have a nVidia GTX 650, always with latest drivers and never any problems (with other games).
Maybe you should check your liquid engine. When so many people have problems with it, there is an issue, whether or not you can reproduce it.
For me it works a few seconds and then all of a sudden, the effects vanish just like that.
