    Go to CCC, color, change to MCE colours.


    Did a few tests with these. They've now broken MPEG2 HD acceleration completely - it was only partially broken before.

    Still no fix for forced HD levels expansion either. I only reported that 3 months ago.

    I saw no improvement in performance in my games, and IQ stayed the same. My AM3 score went down though.

    Anyone that has Crossfire having success with these for Quakewars?

    I'm getting blue corruption noise in Crossfire with two X1950XTX's as well as flickering on off vehicles/players and certain buildings. This was suppose to be fixed!

    Can anyone confirm this? the corruption is more annoying with Quakewars which is not much help when the majority of time the players etc are invisible with a slight fast shimmer during ETQW gameplay. Blue horizontal corruption interferance lines like you get on a TV in certain places that show at random on the screen. The flickering of players etc bring on the noise which is also causing it to kill performance.

    Also when Crossfire is enabled the load times are hugely increased in Quakewars, once you're in game it becomes a slide show. After 10 seconds or so the performance is back. In single card mode the map load times are fast plus no other problems. This is with the old Crossfire dongle setup.

    Can anyone confirm these problems with X19xx as well as 29xx?

    I just installed the drivers on my laptop (Mobility X1700), and ended up with washed-out colors. But CCC for some reason didn''t get installed. Does this have something to do with the fact that I had to use Mobility Modder to install the drivers? Is there a way to install CCC separately now? Or, any other fix?

    No kidding. Every month I wait and hope my problems have been sorted and they get worse!

    Here's another one:

    Also why when a game crashes if the game uses say 1680x1050, and your desktop resolution is 1920x1200. If the game crashes like TF2 when Crossfire is enabled, the desktop is stuck at 1680x1050. This still happens when Crossfire is not set. This also happens with NFS: Most Wanted.

    Even though *Apply the new display settings without restarting* is checked. Trying to switch back to the native desktop display resolution, the ATI drivers ask for a system reboot for the settings to take effect!

    That's seriously messed ATI!

    Do you not know how bloody annoying that is, god forbid should a game crash and I have to reboot to get my native resolution back. Come on!

    This is with XP, don't get me started with Vista!

    So this driver is suppost to give an 30% performance increase in ETQW? For me it only went worse... stuttering and short freezes...
    Going to driver clean and try installing again.... Grrr

    These dont really work at all with my 9800pro. Apps can no longer create D3D windows and dxdiag D3D tests fail to init.
