Greetings,

Lately i visit the french site Check-Six and they have a lot of supportive downloads for Il2FB (and other flight sims). One of my favourites are the tweaked Cataclysts for ATI Cards. The latest 3.9team is perfect and has no problems whatsoever as you may read in other posts. I have good framerates in perfect settings.
Check-Six can be found under 'fansites'.

Good luck or bonne chance!

it's the 3.9 set with 3.7 OGL driver /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif works well all you need to do is make a backup of the atioglxx.dll in system 32 folder then after installing 3.9 copy/paste it there instead of doing multiple driver downloads

So what got changed in the OGL implementation to cause all of the havoc that got caused?

If you put the 3.7 OGL dll in the system32 folder it'll effect every application on your PC that uses it. If you put it only in your IL2 root folder it'll only effect IL2 (this is what you want).

Ture but the explanation was for what had been changed in that driver set and how a user can do it without having to download yet another driver set.

Does Mudmovers have an explanation for dummies for what you guys are talking about? I was told that the 3.9 Cats had the same problems for IL-2 as the 3.8 Cats. So I'm still using the recommended drivers that Oleg recommended.

You have now the 3.7 installed

So you follow these steps:

Go to C:\Windows\System32 folder and find the atioglxx.dll
Copy it somewhere where you can find it easy. (I made a new folder called ATIOpenGL on my D drive and copied it there)

The un-install the 3.7 drivers
Reboot
I use Driver Cleaner (can be downloaded here: www.driverheaven.net (http://www.driverheaven.net)) to clean out the remaining ATI driver files after the reboot
Install the 3.9 drivers
Reboot
Then go to the folder you saved the atioglxx.dll file and copy it back to the C:\Windows\System32 folder and when asked to overwrite the existing file you say "Yes".

That's it.

All is true. The 'team' drivers are indeed 3.9 with the old 3.7 ogl driver. But you'll have the advantages of the 3.8 and 3.9 without issues mentioned in the posts above: copy the old 3.7 ogl as back-up (at this point you've got 3.7 installed!), then install 3.9 over 3.7 - incl. the control panel- and after this put the old 3.7 ogl back to replace the 'faulty'3.9 ogl. Off you go.
So the 3.9team drivers is a complete product and it works fine.

Again i say good luck and bonne chance!

To Buzz 25th
All is true in the post mentioned above. You can follow any lead to bring you the tuned 3.9 drivers. As for 3.7, if you turn to ati's site, they have an archive page for older drivers. This is needfull, as the fuzz on the last cataclysts and Il2FB proves. You can download them or ... still i would make a plee for the cataclyst 3.9team package (Check Six: you don't need to understand French to find them).

Again the best to all.

The root dir would be: \Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles correct?

The bugger atiogl.dll is 4.65 mb large. So in my opinion to large to simply send by mail. I strongly suggest to visit the french Check-Six to obtain a complete product. You can find them under fansites!

The advantages of 3.7 can be found in the apllication menu, were to adjust the settings for 3d. It has a trick to play ILFB in classical brownish colours, and so on. And I personaly think that the effects are better which is a reason why ati made the 3.8 and 3.9.
