Greetings,

Since installing the 3.01_new.exe and the recommended drivers, I have been seeing a 4" X 4" square graphic anomalies in the sky where you would normally see a sun flare. I have an ATI X800 pci-e card. Looking at threads on this topic I'm a little confused. What are Cat 4.11 drivers? Are they drivers for the ATI Card? What do you think is the best course of action. I checked to make sure the correct card was selected in the video setup and I tried Direct X (everything outside the cockpit went black), versus Open GL. Other than this the game runs great. Should I just roll back the drivers? Here's another case of "Why couldn't I leave well enough alone!!!" Any suggestions would be great.

Just tried it and you were right. No big squares when launched with standard exe. Thank goodness for this forum!!!

Cat stands for Catalyst which are the ATI drivers. The most recent, 4.11, cam out in mid-November.
