If you're experiencing the lockups with catalyst 3.6 in opengl try this:

--Download Cat 3.4 from AIi

-- Extract the opengl.dll file from the install. (iirc using winzip or the extract command line, can't quite remember here @ work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

--Place the DLL in your IL2 folder where the main IL2 EXE is.

IL2 will now pick up this open gl version instead of the one installed with 3.6 in \windows. Remember to delete the DLL when cat 3.7 comes out.

I've not tried this with IL2 yet, but it's worked for me before with games where I haven't wanted to roll back the driver but I wanted to run an earlier version of open gl.

I don't have 3.4 anymore, If i get the problem I'll download them again. Leeching the patch right now though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's atioglxx.dll. If you extract the files from the .exe internet distribution with winzip or similar you'll see it in a sub folder.

On my 3.6 c:\ati folder it's at

C:\ATI\SUPPORT\wxp-w2k-radeon-7-91-030625a-010027c-efg\2KXP_INF\B_09865\atioglxx.dl_

The numbers will be different for 3.4 I expect.

You'll have to expand the .dl_ with the windows expand utility.

Open up a command prompt in that folder & type:


expand -r atioglxx.dl_

That'll get you the .dll you can copy into IL2
