    We reviewed The Saboteur a few days ago and since then we have heard of ATI issues when running the game, we contacted ATI about this issue.

    AMD seemed genuinely concerned, they do have a lot of respect for their customers. I feel in this case the pandemic situation might have had something to do with it. hopefully its rectified shortly, I notice the EA staff are now in the thread on their official support forums making statements which is a good sign.

    I still don't see path happening as the devs are out. EA didn't make the game.

    From what I hear EA are pulling resources from other development teams in their structure to look at the code.

    Lets hope they'll fix their stuff. I really didn't like gta4/sa setting, this seems much interesting setup.

    EDIT: Does Dirt2 hotfix driver or 9.12 beta help at all?

    nope that fix only works for some people (on EA forums) - game crashes constantly for most people on ATI cards, needs a patch.

    Well this was to be expected with a ati graphics card.
    Most modern games fail with a ati card, well its AMD
    ATI and AMD suck, my next graphics card will be NVIDIA

    Not sure we can blame AMD for that . EA shouldn't have released the game before testing on both nvidia and Ati cards.
    Also that makes me wonder what is nVidia "the way it is meant o be played" ?
