    I can't speak for Crossfire anymore but 10.8 runs like butter in BC2 on my single 5870.

    For crossfire, I have had the best luck with 10.5a with the all CAP installed, including the 10.8 series.

    Just tried the latest 10.8b hotfix and they suck, getting anything from 40-80 fps with them averaging 65 and pressing tab to bring scoreboard at anytime results in a drop to 40 fps guaranteed all the time.

    10.5a game is running 80-120fps all the time with average of 90 and no drops when pressing tab to bring scoreboard.

    10.5a = Best Crossfire / 5970 driver.

    ATI = Fail with every driver since.

    thanx. I will try out the 10.5a :)
    im shocked over how ati can make the 10.5a driver work great with the BC2 as you guy's say's then just remove the optimization on newer drivers..

    Same for me, fast load times and 140-200fps running dirx11@1680*1050.

    Tried 10.6-10.8 with app = slow load times and slower fps.

    Game maxes out at 200fps "flat lines @ 200fps"

    Well im back again with issues.
    I recently installed 10.9 with 10.9 app profiles.. worked great one run with BC2.. the next time i ran the game.. the bugs and performence drop is back.. rolled back to 10.5 and it works but then the sc2 problems accure.

    Need some advice again.. Any thoughts on the bc2 problem? i cant figure out the performence and glitch/bugs.. loading time.. gray screen at kit menu that lags like a bi***.

    I too am having problems with this game. Im currenlty using 10.9 and so far is the same or worse than 10.8.

    Later im gonna try with 10.5 + 10.8a AP.

    Oh, and by the way, AA works fine for me. The difference between 1xAA and 4xAA is HUGE, but have in mind that the jaggies won't go entirely.

    Can you link me the 10.5a AP, please?

    Thanks.

    im on 10.4, anything up from there had very slow loading times. the only issue i get with 10.4 is a weird flashing in the game but the drivers seems the best right now for me, and yeah im on 2 5870s

    I had to set Cat AI to Advanced to get good performence. But that mean that im not running crossfire then? i havent checked with a GPU monitor.. well well... long loading time is gone but i get a very laggy screen (around 1 fps) with a gray background in kit menu uppon joining the map. I removed the DX files in hte bc2 install folder and the gray laggy screen went away until next time i booted up me beloved bc2.
    Also i get the wierd flashing.. like the enviroment gets all pitch black.. the hud and all other stuff is there.. but pitch black enviroment. But i belive thats something with the game.. cause it dosnt matter if your on ATI or Nvidia.. the wierd flashes accour for both..

    But if someone has a fix for the Grey screen and crossfire.. i would be happy..
