    Hi Guys, I had to go back to Catalyst 3.7 from 3.9. Catalyst 3.9 was dogging down the graphics as well as sound. I'm getting much better and more fluid frame rates as well as more reliable sound. No Texture glitches and no sound cutouts anymore, no popping speech, gone. I'm getting frame rates between 35 to 50 in the cockpit. Much slower with the mirror's on though, but Oh Well............BTW, I have hardware acceleration turned all the way, 44k sampling rate.

    Strange. The 3.9 works fine for me except that glitches with multitexturing enabled of course. Need 3.9 for FS 2004, made wonder for that game but will use 3.7 open gl driver for IL 2 FB

    Yes the 3.7 OGL driver is much better for FB other improvments in 3.9 help other games/sims. Best solution is to dump the OGL driver in the IL2 FB folder and use the latest 3.9 hotfix drivers

    The 3.9 drivers are way better in FS2004 and Lock-On. They seem about the same in FB for me. I'll keep them.

    I wonder how they would do on an older card..like a 9500Pro..... When I re-installed everything I didnt even use the disk that came with my card I just went straight to ATI and got the 3.7s... Never looked better.

    Well ATI uses unified drivers which is great for us with older cards. If 9700 PRO can be considered old. But itâ´s been out for about 2 years now if I am not totally off scale so I guess it can.
