View Full Version : An ATI User's Letter to Oleg and Company

Dear Oleg,
Thanks for building a wonderful series of flight simulators. I have purchased every version from IL2 to PF. I have a simple request and it has nothing to do with tweaking roll rates, improving carrier takeoffs or the size of muzzle flashes. I am an ATI X800 pci-e user and while the card is lightning fast and trouble free with every other game I play, with PF I get a giant white square instead of the sun and a small white square instead of a crosshairs in no cockpit mode. I know the Catalyst 4.10 drivers are a fix, but then you lose the beauty of the blue water in PF. So, when you are putting the finishing touches on the next patch, I hope you will fix the graphic bugs. Thanks.

This is ATI's problem, not 1C's problem

Please provide ATI with feedback about the problems you have with Cat 5.1

See Oleg's instructions on this forum.

What makes you so sure. ATI says it's a code problem. I have no ATI issues with any other game including MOA, COD, Far Cry, MP2, etc.

If Oleg announces its ATI drivers problem, then no matter how much you THINK its not, unless you are a games developer or work for ATI yourself your just going to have to beleive him.
Of course, if your so knowledgeable to disagree with oleg, then please write a peice of code which will switch off certain technologies depending on what graphics card your using so that oleg can think about employing you.

I've got ATI x800 using Cat 4.11, everything is fine? Am I lucky or something?
