View Full Version : Settings for ATI x850

12-19-2005, 08:39 AM
Hi all,
Ive been using an 9800xt, with opengl, default ati 9700,9800 etc selected driver, with good FPS even over forests.

Just installed this new card, and now it is so choppy its unplayable. Theres no listed option for this card. I tried the diretx, and this is better, but still significantly poorer than the 9800xt.

Any one with any advice as to how to get the best out of this card with the IL2 games, FB, PF.

Thanks in advance

I'd complete reinstall your system and use the latest drivers for each component, install the Mobo drivers first. Use OGL and maximum settings after that. An X850 is good for max settings, both on the catalyst control panel and setup options, 4XFSAA minimum etc.

What CPU/RAM do you have?

With an Athlon 64 3200+ and 1GB RAM I get 30fps average on Blackdeath with:

Perfect Mode
4x AA
8x AF

I use Cat 5.11 drivers

Edit: I have the XT PE version of the card with 540mhz core btw

Iv just got a similar card -see this thread for advice and settings- Im getting a steady 30 fps in black death in perfect


Id post your dxdiag in community help and try the new 5.12 drivers first before reformatting.

Thanks Grue,
My signature should be updated with my current hardware. Ill give the cat 5.11 a go.

Ive just tricked around with different selections in the setup.exe program, and went back to the X800/9700....option. And its working fine now. Very smooth. Running similar settings to you, but have not tried 'perfect' yet.

Will try it later....

Is it a PCIe or AGP card. I'm running an ATI X850XT PCIe and am getting 54 FPS in BlackDeath, settings on perfect and excellent. I use the default card setting in IL2setup.exe which is ATI X800/9800/9700/9600/9500. If that doesn't work then you should read this thread http://forums.ubi.com/eve/ubb.x/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/6651075613/p/1 and custom select things for your setup. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Thanks Dieg,
Just the thread i was looking for. Will try out those settings.

Any one tell me what is the 'black death' trk you refer to, and where can i get it ?

It's already in the game. At the main menu screen click Play Track, it's towards the bottom of the list and this is the track used to benchmark performance.
