SolvedWeird Red Glow on ME campaign map around the edges of objects.

I came across a graphical issue that is annoying to look at and is clearly a bug, basically there is this weird red glow around the edges of certain objects on the Mortal Empires Campaign map that did not appear until I loaded a saved game that was saved a few turns before. This red glow is most visible on the Dwarf Unit banners.

This issue is not there when a new campaign has started however so clearly something is messing up the lighting in this game.

To Reproduce simply play a game till at least turn 127, make sure you save the game 2 turns before that and then load that save and it should appear.

    I found out what is causing this to happen, its the FXAA, setting the AA to FXAA causes this red glow effect as shown in the pictures above, set the AA to anything else and it goes away.

    While I have found a way to get rid of the Red glow by changing to a different AA setting, it causes my FPS to take a hit by doing so, and turning AA off entirely makes the game look far too sharp and jagged for my liking.

    So something is causing FXAA to produce this red glow effect on the Campaign map and I do not know what it is. Please investigate.
