  1. @JKLE_Cougar - thanks for your assistance and offer of getting my ass handed to me in an online game. As soon as I get off ISDN and get Broadband I'll be happy to have a game. @hubrisincarnate - I don't really know what the driver package is that I auto-downloaded from Windows Update. The best thing to do would be a clean uninstall of your existing Catalyst Drivers. Read this excellent article on how to properly install and uninstall ATI drivers. http://www.tweakguides.com/ATICAT_1.html Myself after uninstalling videocard drivers I always reboot into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner, reboot into normal mode and then run Regsupreme. This way I can be confident that all traces of the previous driver package have been removed.

  3. Tried various resolutions. 640X480, 1024X768, 1280X1024. Anti-aliasing is disabled in Catalyst Control Centre. Using latest Catalyst Drivers 8.4. I also tried rolling back to 7.10's to no avail. I'm using the unofficial jkhub patch. I may try rolling back to an even older driver set as a last resort, performing a clean uninstall of the existing drivers. It's got me stumped. I guess most people are running this on an NVidia card. :-( Thanks for trying to assist me with my problem JKLE_Cougar. :-) *UPDATE* Crisis averted! I got the little darling working. After doing a clean uninstall of the 8.4 catalyst drivers I thought "Screw it!" I'll try and install the 7.4 drivers even though my videocard isn't supported by them. Big surprise, it didn't work. Then in despair I tried Windows Update and it downloaded a bizarrely small sized 7 meg driver update for my HD2600XT. The drivers install followed by the mandatory restart. VIOLA!! The sucker now runs without a hitch in D-3D mode. A convoluted (not to mention blind-luck!) approach to find a solution but all well that ends well. Cheers for the help once again JKE_Cougar. *Runs off to get lost in these awesome games all over again*

  5. I resized the image to 1024X768. Pic was taken at 1280X1024. After installing Mysteries of the Sith I experienced exactly the same sort of ghosting/corruption in the image. Maybe it's the Catalyst drivers? Either that or there could be some sort of tweak I could try in ATI Tray Tools. I've already tried disabling some Tiling options in Ati Trays advanced tweaking options but seeing as I don't know if this will help the situation it's sort of a stab in the dark..

  9. Hi. I've just reinstalled the game on Vista SP1 with the unofficial 1.01 patch (the only way I could get it to run) and the game runs. However in Direct 3D mode when the level commences I get a weird ghosting pixellated effect on the screen. Anything I look at on the screen ghosts and within seconds of moving the mouse around you cannot see anything on the screen except pixellated garbage. I'm tried running the game in a variety of compatibility modes with Visual Themes and Desktop Composition disabled but to no avail. My videocard is an ATI HD2600XT and I'm using the latest (8.4) Catalyst Drivers. Software mode runs fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
