I play War Inc. Battlezone on Steam and I have an issue with the weapons and other items being a red box instead of the actual image. Any ideas how to fix it?
Any sort of graphical glich in a steam game is most likely caused by broken cache files. If there is any missing items (invisible items, colorful boxes appearing instead of the items etc ) then it is most likely it. On top of that your games might crash because of the corrupted cache.
Solution to this problem is described on the actual steam website and im usually not a fan of copy paste but i think in this case it make sure i dont skip out on any details.
Verify integrity of game cache
Re-extract the Game Files for Valve games Important:
This portion is only valid for Valve games stored in a specific user folder such as the Half-Life series, Orange Box, and Counter-Strike.
Once you have verified the integrity of your game cache files, you can make sure that your extracted game files are correct by navigating to your Steam user directory: ..\Steam\steamapps[USER NAME]\ and either renaming or deleting your game folder.
Note: If you are playing a Singleplayer game and wish to keep your saved games, rename the game directory.
The next time you run the game, it will re-extract the files from your game cache files. If you wish to restore your saved games, copy the SAVE folder from your old game directory to your new one.
Here is the Source.
This problem seems to be caused by certain graphics cards and their lack of support for the way that the game renders bitmaps. Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do to fix this aside from talking to the game's developers.
