Also for PHIAL and others there are nice fixes listed in the <A HREF="http://www.ati.com/support/includes/titles/fixed.html" target="_new">'Fixed in this Driver'</A> for the R8500/9100. So you peons of pixeldom get props! :tongue:

EDIT;
<b>P.S.</b> Look at Catalyst Maker's comments in the <A HREF="http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?s=5e533ee9a64ae14f189490f534a0f8f7&threadid=33708513&perpage=20&pagenumber=1" target="_new">Official CAT 3.7</A> thread at Rage3D. His reference to the CAT 3.8s makes me hungry for more already. I hope it's not just the 'BIGGEST' (the 3.7s are alo bigger than the 3.6s [by abou 5mb]).

Nah it's not about me, it's about the Peeps!

It's funny I've still got the time-stamped winner! :tongue:

BTW, I'm the one who ADDED most of your links so I thinks it's covered.
PS, add the Rag3D thread for the nOObs, it's pretty ood reading and really let's people get an idea of what's fixed, what may still be a problem, and they can also see some serious whinning and childishness. Which of course NEVER happens here. :wink:

EDIT: And of course replying to this just bumps you up a notch on the thread list. :eek:

it doesn't mention the black screen you get when you try to get to the menu in counter strike (HL) in d3d (by pressing escape).

so how is this fixed then??

:(
 
HL/CS ESC-key issue was fixed a while back!

It's only a PAUSE now.

Any further errors refer to VALVE.

i read the part where its an 8 second pause...but if i wait..i keep waiting.

once i wait its impossible to esc right back to game. Instead i'm stuck on a black screen trying hard to end task. which sometimes works.

i was told it was fixed in cat 3.5

But if so...why do i have the problem.

heh, with my old geforce 2...it was in opengl that i got the black screen but in d3d it worked.

I have tried playing HL in opengl and it does not work as well as d3d (whereas with nvidia it was opposite)

I looked. Not yet.
Give the guy a couple of days and they will be ready.

now i remember the problem in open gl counter strike...
it defaults to 60 hz refresh rate..even though i have the override on.

strange cause quake 3 runs at the override 85 hz and its opengl also.

of course all the d3d games also work with the override refresh rate.

----------

so everyone put in there 3.7's now? is it safe for me to install them?

:))))

Wow!

A small fix that will make me so HAPPY!!!
NO MORE BLURRY TEXT in Windows XP with my Radeon 8500!

ATI, I love you!

Ahh yes, I know but I thought you also had an R8500LE just like GW. Oh well too much beer, not enough brain cells!

You have a GF4ti and you're calling ME a fool !?! :tongue:

Well, you can wait for th Omega's for nV (still aren't out yet since being 'alowed' to produce them again).

Yeah some nice small fixes, at least that I've noticed. A few games are running "better" CS, Elite Force2 and I think Im getting slightly more FPS in Morrowind.
