Checked 1.04. Crossfire still broken. Not that fussed as it sounds like multiplayer is still dodgy anyway.
Oh well, off to play games that.. y'know.. work and all that.
I'll pop back and try again next patch.
Try downloading latest(10.04)driver ATI Catalyst and drivers
and then reconfigure 3D settings in Catalyst, disable Catalyst setting and set edge settings in all settings. with some tweaking it should work, if all else fails disable crossfire which does work but defeats the object somewhat.
Disabling the "Catalyst AI" portion in the Catalyst software actively disables crossfire -- only one GPU is active when this setting is disabled.
I bought the game last week and I also have the same graphical problems as seen in the screenshots.
I have a single ATI 4850, so my problem can't be Crossfire related.
I have tried disable Catalyst AI and all of the other 3D effects in Catalyst control center, and downgrading video effects in game and in options.ini file, but all with no effect.
I can't believe that this problem isn't fixed 2 months after the game is released.
Has one1 found a solution to this problem?
I have a 4870 and have no problems whatsoever.
I did have some problems with the newer drivers from ATI, so i'm stil using the 9.10 Catalyst package (which you can still find on their website somewhere, if you want to try it out). Im using Vista 64-bits by the way.
I have the same issue with the flickering trees. My setup has an ati 4850X2 card. I could make the flickering trees disappear by disabling Catalyst A.I., but because you actually disable one of the card, the framerate drops.
So I thought, I log this one with Ubi Support. I made a nice call for them, I also told them about the A.I. workaround and that I think a workaround is something else than a solution. So I asked them when they will adress the crosfire issue.
The answer was simple: the game hasn't been developed with crossfire or SLI support. It will not be in the future either. The advice I got was even beter: open your computer, remove one of your video cards (they don't understand what X2 means I guess.)
So there you have it: Ubisoft is deliberatly ignoring the fact that many users have either SLI or Crossfire systems, and cannot run settlers 7 the way they should.
I have HD4890, 4gb RAM, Phenom 2 550 3,1Ghz, updated drivers etc,etc... Performance is really bad. Framerate is so low, that there's no possibility to play. I got this framerate issue even with Ubi intrologo (it loses half of frames in this 2 sec. movie!!!) )
What operating system are you on? Previously i was in WinXP, and i had not good performance with 4GB ram, Radeon 5770 and Core i3 530 (2 cores, 4 virtual processors with hyperthreading), i think it was due to threading management of WinXP.
Now i've moved to Windows 7 64b, and i get much much better performance, i'd say i have doubled the framerate with the exact same PC and settings. It could be related to DX10-11 improvements, but i'm quite sure it's cos of better multithreading performance of Win7 compared to WinXP.
I have a new mac mini with16GB. I am not very savvy with Mac, but when I go to about this mac> more info>system report; it looks like that since there is nothing in the PCI slot there is no graphics card and under the graphics section it states that it has HD graphics 3000 built in. Could that be the reason why when I play my newly purchased Settlers 7, the trees are blue like the sky and the move movement is shuddering slightly?
