so, no luck yet then?
Any drivers/scripts you need testing?
Folks, does anybody know what is the ATI Multimedia Device ID and what is it for V7700? The same as for HD38xx or not?
Gellmar, what is the multimedia device ID ?
The site has a tool to find out device ID s, but what do you mean by multimedia device ID ? I do not think that you ask for PCI device ID, maybe you are asking the audio-over-HDMI device ID ?
Hi guys. Great news that we got a new developer here. Nice gellmar! =)
Did Schoko quit? Have you gotten a reply from him yet? Wondering if I should buy a Nvidia card again. I have to be able to model with Maya in Windows.
The selection bug is still there with the newer drivers isn't it? Someone wrote to me that the selection bug doesn't exist on 64bit systems, is that true? I have a Mac Pro and tried Maya under OS X. The selection bug doesn't exist there, but performance is a joke!
So in the recent months I've been using an old system with my old Geforce 6800 Ultra just to get some work done and have been hoping for a fix ever since I bought the card 8 months ago. Actually I could try a newer unmodded driver to see for myself if the fixed it, nevermind. =)
Anyway, if you can crack the protection and the selection problem finally disappears a dream would come true for me. Keep up the good work.
The selection bug also happens under XP64
That's some precious information NormanBates, thanks for that. Right now the best workaround for me is to do the modeling in OSX. I spent so much time there that I got so familiar with the system...now I don't want to go back to windows anymore!
But when it comes to 3D it unfortunately lacks compatibility from some software that I need, and of course there's no softmod for relativily cheap hardware.
Where the softmod really shines is when I do the final composition in Maya. I can have seemingly an endless amount of vertices going and it's still asking for more.
Still hoping for a better driver though. I can't understand why they don't fix it. There must be at least a few customers who bought the expensive FireGL cards to use them with Maya. Those customers won't return in a decade!?
Maya selection bug is reported to be solved.
However, it from 8.502 onward, and there is no soft mod for it.
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
When selecting vertices, it may take several seconds for the view to refresh and Maya may appear to be unresponsive.
Issue is now fixed with driver 8.502. Minor caveats have however been discovered with this new driver (see above).
Yeah that was the other selection bug. :cry:
The one I'm talking about is the one that doesn't let you select components which are closest to the camera, but instead always picks the highest in the outliner.
What that means is, you navigate to an object, go to eg. vertice component mode, try to click a vertice but it instead selects another object behind the one you're trying to edit.
Eg. if your chair is in a house you gonna select the wall behind it. You could always go into isolation mode, but that's not very practical.
Ok, i need some help, sorry because i look like a newbie
I downloaded the drivers 8.523.1.1
I copied the patchscript to a folder and use it as a rts
I modified the inf line with the following
"ATI FirePro V8750 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9440
Then i installed the drivers from the device manager with the update drivers and looking for the inf file manually.
Test with spec and the maya result is 25.
Can someone help me please, i'm annoyed :s
Thanks for your work khogan, gellmar and shocko (and all the testers of course)
Are you trying to softmod 4870?
I am bit out of this scene. Is 4870 now softmoddable?
When its official I hope someone starts a thread stating that.
Yes, i'm trying to mod a 4870 with 1024mb
as far as I know:
* there's no mod for 4.5x drivers yet
* there's no mod for HD4XXX cards yet
* what I call the "selection lag bug" is when you click on an object and it takes ages for that click to take effect; it was corrected and I'm happy not suffering it anymore
* what I call the "selection bug" is when you try to select something and other stuff, which is behind it but higher in the outliner, gets selected; that one is still on every moddable driver, and I'm afraid it's also on newer 4.5x drivers (I also can't believe they don't fix it: they had time to implement new anti-mod features but they couldn't cope with that silly bug... surely some people bought the real firegl cards to work with maya, and I guess those real pros won't be touching an AMD card with a long stick until they forget how useless this bug rendered their firegls; in fact, I guess this kind of thing is the reason why most real pros say quadro is *the only* option)
sorry then for asking for the vista mod, if there's no xp64 mod i think the vista mod can wait as much as is needed.
Some news in the xp64 mod?
I will do anything i can to help.
Thanks for your work people.
there is a mod for 4.4x drivers under XP32 and XP64
there is no mod for:
* vista (32 or 64)
* 4.5x drivers
* HD4XXX cards
FireGL 8.453 driver is out.
Tried Gellmar's script on HD 3650 and HD 4670.
On 4670 there was performance in specviewperf 10 - ugnx test. On 3650 there wasn't any performance even on ugnx test.
Ok, then i hope there will be some mod soon for xp/xp64, thenks for the answers and the work people.
Hey People, what's happening, some news?
somebody can download those drivers from herehttp://www.newdisk.cn/mypane.aspx?Path=wesley8%2fNew+ATI+Mod/
and test it.
Hey, aren't you that guy who made the first HD2XXX drivers with firegl mod ?
EDIT 1: Because some internet or host error i cannot download yet, i'm going to sleep now, i'll try tomorrow, thanks!
EDIT 2: Downloading!
