I have Radeon 9000 Pro 128mb, and i downloaded the latest drivers catalyst 4.4 with the Omega Drivers. I see a lot of weird stuff when i go into game in AEP. Was wondering if this will be fixed in patch, or should i download 4.1 or 4.2 drivers or what.

Im using the 4.2's on a 9700 pro. I tried the 4.4's but my frame rates were terrible so I went back to 4.2's.

The 4.4 Omega (2.5.36b) give my 9600xt avg about 46 fps on Normandy map, min 28 & max 80 or 90. Definitely reccommend the Omega drivers, plus they give a more adaptable setup.

p.s. Landscape in Excellent, not perfect. The 4.4 has issues with fb in perfect.

oh, and 1280 x 960 with 4x AA and 2x Aniso.
I think this is the min. useable resolution, but thats another matter entirely...

I've tried the Dell 4.1's; the Catalyst 4.2's twice; the Catalyst 4.3's, and I always find myself going back to the Catalyst 4.1's. I'm through testing drivers till something significant comes out.

Just my personal opinion, and I have no technical data to back it up, but 4.1's work best on my system....I also find these drivers work best for me in FS2004.

4.1 seem to be rock solid, does not require additional tweaking or anything... just like 3.7s were back in the day.

Thx guys for your replies, will try out 4.2. I'm trying to use perfect settings because if i don't have max settings on a game, i feel like i'm missing out on the game somehow, lol i dunno. I always been on 'excellent' landscape with everything else maxed, so i'm seeing if those omega drivers & maybe 4.2 will let me have perfect settings on my 9000 Pro 128mb radeon

Hunter......do you prefer 4.2 because you play in perfect or because they are the fastest in excellent? I'm using 4.4's right now playing in excellent.

I play in perfect on a 9800 XT. I find them to be better in IQ with FB than 4.1. For people playing excellent 4.4 have much better IQ IMO
