    What about NFS: HP2 ?

    Hi

    I also had similar problems with Halo, but more specifically, Need For Speed: Hot Persuit 2....

    All the text within the game is currupt and completely un readable! Nor can I see the speedo or rev counter, because just currupt multi-colored blocks.

    Drivers:

    WinXP Pro
    Hyperion 4.51
    Omega 2.4.96c
    DX 9.0b


    Only thing i've found to fix this is one of two things:
    Remove Hyperion all together.
    Remove Omega drivers and install Catalyst 3.9's.

    Both of these solutions reduce game performance significantly, so could this mean that the Hyperion 4.51's and Omega Drivers dont mix? Or the Need For Speed Hot Persuit 2 isn't compatible with Omega Drivers?

    Please advise because this is stopping me from using the Omega drivers, which I would rather not do as other games are greatly improved!!!

    Anyone got any idea's?!

    hmmm

    Well i've since taken off the Omega drivers and the Hyperion 4.51's.

    I re-installed the Omega Drivers, restarted, installed Hyperion 4.49's (BE WARNED PEOPLE THAT THE HYPERION 4.50's CAN CAUSE SERIOUS LOSS OF DATA!), and bingo, no problems in any games.

    I am running 8x AGP, but i am yet to enable Fast Write, so I will see if this has any effect....

    My guess is that you can't use the softmod with your card because not all pipelines work, better luck next time ..

    the thing is, that i have problems with the ati drivers as well... it's quite instable and hangs my machine.

    i used to have a geforce 4 ti 4200 installed, which i just deinstalled (with driver cleaner 2)

    but no system rebuild....read somwhere people posting to re install your system when changing from nvidia to ati...anything true about that?

    Hey

    Okay thx to Omega's testing w/ me I'm able to run those drivers with my comp, too ^^

    I have a Sony laptop with integrated ATI Radeon Mobility IGP 345M chipset..
    So... here are the pros:

    Pros:
    - Max Payne 2 Crossfades are being displayed properly
    > The Sony drivers didn't display them at all!!! oO
    - Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic runs!!!
    > The sony drivers somehow didn't support OpenGL 1.4 or so oO strange huh?

    Negative:
    - When I'm playing Games and tv out is in use, the pic on the laptop screen is not fullscreen when I'm playing in 800x600..
    > There are black columns on each side... but the tv out has it on fullscreen... oO

    That's about it :))

    Greetings
    Exter
