    Actually, your previous setting was probably better.

    If you've read the part about that setting thoroughly, 128 is only the maximum possible value.
    They actually recommend setting it to 16 for most cases; dual core systems should set it to 8.
    The higher the value the more taxing it is to your system, hence the slight judder you're experiencing.

    ...I can only assume you haven't read page 6 of this thread.

    Yea, I dropped it from 128 to 64 and its fine, the quicker my system renders the images I guess the better

    I`m experimenting with 96 but not sure if it even supports it

    great post, I was getting so much artifacting and flickering of characters it made the game almost unplayable, these drivers did the trick.

    Managed to get the game to fly with Rage performance drivers, but had stuttering and had to disable ATI AI. Now i get some black boxes on textures and characters.
    Guess we wait....i am out of ideas.

    Try setting Catalyst A.I. slider to "High Quality" and uncheck "Enable Surface Format Optimization".

    Ew.
    But that sounds about right, actually.
    Without extensive custom config, the game does poop on your eyes. :p

    Ninja-ed...again. -.-

    What? You guys didn't do the 2 week course and received a certification on configuring and optimizing the OpenGL engine before you got the game?

    Pfft!

    Well, new drivers help a bit, at least no crashing when loading new level. Still have to disable Catalyst AI for the stutter. And black boxes on textures are still there.

    Got the ATI Rage drivers from Guru3D but still getting character flickering, any ideas?

    Loving the game, but after games like STALKER (my all time fave) and Fallout, it's really sad in a way that with all the amazing level design and graphics, I'd much have preferred a bit of RPG elements in the game and some open world exploration like STALKER.

    But still, it's a solid shooter, graphics are utterly amazing, the sound is just beautiful.. nearly crapped my pants when I first heard that pistol :D

    Does anyone know what the optimal settings would be for an ATI 5870 (mobile, 1GB VRAM) for these strings? A few days ago I was finally able to get RAGE playable, with a lot of help from "The Mac" regarding specific ATI driver settings, and also a handful of custom OGL options (above included) with a custom cfg file... However I did notice that RAGE was running my GPU and CPU pretty hot; as far as the CPU goes, I don't know if that's maybe because I enabled the "+jobs_numThreads 4" setting, since I have a Core i7 processor...

    But as far as texture memory goes for the strings quoted above, anyone think I'd be better off halving those for my GPU? Setting them all to "4096" instead?

    Also, AMD released an even NEWER driver since the "RAGE Performance Driver" on the day of release, right? Is that what people are referencing in this post? Is that the "11.10 Preview 2" noted a few posts up? Thanks!

    IIRC 4096 is the default blurry textures most people are seeing at release.
    Maybe try something in-between in multiples of 1024 like 5120.

    11.10 Preview 2 is basically the BF3 and Rage driver being put into one package with some additional fixes, so yeah, that's the newest one for Rage.
