Oh my, where to begin. Loaded FB+Aces+PF on my new Dell with X800 pci-e, 3.2gig and 1024ram. PF ran gloriously on Perfect with 4.11 drivers and 55fps. Then I loaded the 3.1exe new and stated to see a large yellow square instead of the normal sun flare in no-cockpit view. Then I uninstalled and reloaded, went to the 4.12 Cat drivers and now can't even run Perfect without missing textures or black strobing. I never had these issues with NVIDIA cards. Me thinks ATI sucks. Any help would be most appreciated.

You might be ok using the 4.11s or 4.12s with the old exe, some folks can and some can't.

Alot of peeps are using the 4.10s, the water is alot darker with them, but they work with the new exe

I've had problems with both the 4.11s and 4.12s so have gone back to using the 4.10s until another stable driver release comes along.

I'm running the 4.12 driver on my 9800Pro 256Mb/256bit card with nice results. However, during a coop my skins and cockpit detail degraded. But it was only when I was using a non-stock skin. All pilots in the game using non-stock skins lost textures; however, all the AI's did not.

As far as LOMACs performance with this card a driver... It's screemin' man! 55fps in-cockpit with mirrors on, and 90-110 fps in external views. When the LOMAC ad-on comes out, I'll be flying jets quite a bit more.

So, ya decided to try a BETA EXE on your new rig when it was running just fine? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Then you think new drivers will help with the BETA EXE without researching these forums, which you would have found countless threads regarding problems with the new exe! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Then you trash ATI when you already said it was running awesome before trying the BETA EXE.
