    Yeah, it seems some races are fine, but others are still screwed up... so let's wait for a new CAP or hotfix, Andrew posted on his twitter about a fix for Shift 2 and Crysis 2 (both steam and retail versions).

    Shift 2 Unleashed has BY FAR the worst GFX I've seen in a modern video game! It looks like PSOne GFX!

    Agreed, I think the first Shift looks much better, although a proper comparison won't really be possible until AMD delivers profiles etc. to improve performance.

    Hmm, those pics look darker then it should be.

    Edit: Just noticed it was already mentioned.

    I really like it a lot. Adjusting the steering to experienced or higher helps make the game control a lot better, or at least for me. Really though you can make it control anywhere from traditional NFS games all the way to simulation style. The sound production value is really high as well if you have a good sound system.

    And like others have said, it's really pretty. :)

    **Added**
    The only really bad thing I can think of is that there aren't that many cars to choose from. They have a lot of the really important ones though so it's really not that big of a deal.

    I did the RadeonPro tweaks suggested here and while my fps is now a steady 60, I still get flicker. I also now get microstuttering which I didn't get when using plain Catalyst settings.

    I think I'm just going to wait for new CAPs or for a patch or two before diving too deeply into the game. Shift 1 works flawlessly, so I can always stick to that (or GT5) for a while.

    I viewed the Driver Capability Option, problem is when I enable it I get a warning message of some sort?

    [​IMG]

    I don't want to do anything I don't understand that would mess up my cards that's why I did not enable this feature.

    What does this do, make you cards run hot?


    An what drivers would I choose if I were to enable this feature?

    I am still a riikie at this Radeon Pro Tool, but it does help gaming to a degree :)

    I have an HD 5970, and I use 11.5b. I did all things which you said. But, there is no difference. I'm getting about 30 FPS and I am still getting flickering. I tried with 11.5 CAP5, and I also tried without any CAPs. Both of them are the same. What is the problem? How to fix the problem?

    I'm using 11.5b Cap5 with crossfire 5870 and eyefinity 4080x768, I'm playing all maxed out with AA on high and i"m getting 80 fps in day races and around 60-80 fps in night races. No flickering, no radeon pro, no renaming, just straight up.

    You need to do a clean install of the game and drivers, then update to the latest Shift 2 patch and 11.5 Cap5.

    I tried it, but I didn't notice any difference.
