Not sure if perfect water is fixed but will try http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ahh just noticed in 'fixed' :

A performance decrease is no longer noticed when setting the game option to Perfect in the game IL-2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles

Sure hope they're everything they're touted to be. Btw, you might want to duplicate your thread over at the Community Support boards. Many people check there for feedback on tech issues like drivers. Personally, I usually let some intrepid souls test drive any new driver for a few days to see if any unforeseen issues arise.

Good idea but... I just tried them and erm well IL2 in perfect is like 1fps for me - gonna do some more 'testing' and see what I come up with.

12 to 18 frames for me.

Does somebody have the atioglxx.dll of the 4.2 cats around?

Perfect still broken.

>>>Very Important<<<
Please go to the Catalyst Crew Feedback Page (http://apps.ati.com/driverfeedback/) and submit a report. The more reports recieved, The quicker it will get fixed. Please specify you are using the AEP or not.

For now, Just stick with 4.1 or 4.2 for perfect mode.

Thanks!

very bad performance for me. Perfect runs now at 7/8 fps, normally 20-24. Excellenet also got very bad fps compared with the previous driver.

Sheeesh - why post 'fixed' if it blatently isnt ffs thats what I want to know.

I also noticed that RvS is also worse.

Yep...Perfect very slow compared with Cat 4.1 or 4.2. Also, Direct3d mode is slower than earlier releases.

I think they're just tweakin' for Far Cry now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

Yes, the performance issue in Perfect mode is obviously NOT solved! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

Well, I can only repeat what PF_Coastie said - PLEASE go here (http://apps.ati.com/driverfeedback/) and report this! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Which Catalysts are best for Excellent settings for Radeon 9600 PRO?

Im not sure about the 9600 but the best performance and stability for the 9700 pro I find are the 4.1's

It's faster than 4.4s and any previous drivers, but the bug with perfect setting is still there.

For running in perfect mode do this:

In video setup from il-2 setup set it on the 9800/9700/9500. Perfect should work then.

Slechtvalk - does that work (have you tried it) or are you just suggesting that because it has that as an option ?

i.e. most people here use custom setting to better performance not the standard options.

Because they don't use the standard (9800/9700/9600 option perfect doesn't work mostly.

Perfect runs perfectly with earlier drivers which proves 'Perfect' in fact works and the problem people are having here is that the new 4.5's cats performace are greatly reduced so Perfect does 'work' but terribly i.e. very poor frame rates.
