I've downloaded ATIs cat 4.10 suite yesterday and installed it. The positive side is a real gain in speed - as discussed in the general forum already.
On the other side I have some funny effects, I never have seen before and thought I share it with you.
First, my PC now crashes to reboot, when selecting the advanced tab of desktop properties (right click on desktop -> advanced). This is consistent.
Second, I once experienced that WindowsXP lost its appearance (I think it's the "visual themes service" towards the oldfashioned look. By selecting the service once "off" and then "on" again, the process was back on track ?
Third, I noticed some funny and very short blackouts during the startup phase of WindowsXP. After startup, everythings seems to work normally.
My system: WinXP home SP2, AMD 2000+ 1GB RAM, SB live, ATI radeon 9700 pro.
Basically, I am not really bothered by these things, especially that FB now runs as it is supposed to be (I never was able to run more than - lets say - 10-15 planes in one scenario without slide show effects (frame rates dropping to 15 and below)
