    11.5 CAP 5 fix for x-fire lighting/NPC issues.

    Used with Cat 11.5b and they work great, all lighting issues gone as well as npc interaction, and performance is excellent with 6970's x-fire.

    Yeah, still not sure what he exactly meant by that.
    Kinda wish they wouldnt be so darn vague about this stuff, sometimes its like they just enjoy screwing with us.

    They work.
    Make sure to re-install driver after un-installing any old caps then install new caps and reboot.

    I used driver sweeper too and removed caps and driver, then swept in safe mode, then installed 11.5b drivers then the new 11.5 CAP5s, but i doubt you have to do all that.

    LOL, only reason i knew was cuz i did the same thing!
    I didnt reboot either first time i tried them and i still had the light bleed issue and thought "well here we go again".
    Rebooted, and they worked fine.

    Then i decided to be sure i had everything clean and i did all that extra stuff to be sure i had it all installed clean.

    im playing it in eyefinity and each cap KILLS performance drastically in Crysis 2...

    these caps are actually great for witcher 2... finally have 99% gpu usage on both cards, before it would max out at around 55-60%... I can play the game finally with ubersampling and it runs like a charm!

    gotta figure out this crysis issue and these are a keeper i guess...

    btw, vertex 3's are awesome! :banana:

    Still not fixed here. I'm gonna un-install everything, sweep the rest, the reboot.

    i'll see if a fresh install do the trick.

    Works also on single card (ATI 5870M here). Clean install 11.5b + CAP 5. No more NPC issue or lighting issue and great performance.

    I am giving them a try right now, so far I tried Crysis 2 Multiplayer and fps went from +120fps to 55-80fps looks like the scaling is screwed again, I'll try Radeon Pro profile and report back.

    Only way to make it proper performance is doing AFR on Radeon Pro but then Flickering is back. :banana:

    So I guess I'm back to the 8.86 drivers from asder00.

    Try this.
    Un-install any old CAPS
    Un-install ALL existing drivers. <reboot>
    Re-boot to safe mode and run driver sweeper and clean all Ati drivers<reboot>
    Install 11.5b drivers <reboot>
    Installed new CAP 5 <reboot>

    Dont be stingy with the reboots, they suck, but it is necessary to BE SURE.
