Bioshock werkt niet met 7.9 op XP, mijn driver was eerst 7.7, want 7.8 liep ook niet geheel vlekkeloos met mijn X1950GT (zacht uitgedrukt). Bioshock werkte dus prima met 7.7, maar toen ik 7.9 had geinstalleerd, gaf hij zo'n gebruikelijke Windows-error (send, don't send etc.). Ik heb een herinstallatie van Bioshock geprobeerd, maar dat leverde niks op :'(
Iemand (nu al) ervaring met dit probleem?
Update: Driver rollback gedaan (naar 7.7) en Bioshock werkt weer! Het ligt dus wel degelijk aan de nieuwe drivers van Ati.

[Reactie gewijzigd door huorpalantir op 11 september 2007 16:27]

Ati adviseert om driver 7.7 te gebruiken voor AGP kaarten. 7.8 en 7.9 zijn niet stabiel met AGP kaarten. Kan de link niet direct vinden.
Ah, vandaar dat ik een BSOD kreeg na installatie van 7.9... Een 'inifinite loop' in ati2dvag.dll.

Snel maar weer 7.7 geinstalleerd.

[Reactie gewijzigd door edie op 11 september 2007 20:30]

Heb ook problemen met de 7.8 versie en terug gegaan naar 7.7. Had toch gehoopt dat ze in 7.9 de problemen opgelost hadden, maar is blijkbaar alleen maar erger geworden. Zal ze vanavond eens proberen en kijken of bioshock nog werkt.

Oh ja ik heb een X1950Pro AGP.

Ik heb de 7.9 drivers toch maar geinstalleerd en ze werken uitstekend. Tot nu toe geen problemen. Bioshock draait ook perfect. Allemaal heel erg gek.

[Reactie gewijzigd door zwarteraaf op 12 september 2007 18:37]

is goed om te weten ik ben ook al 4 dagen bezig bioshock werkend te krijgen op mijn AGP X1950Pro

zal eens me drivers down graden :)
En hier ook de link voor de mobile versies die er tot op heden nog steeds niet genoemd worden:
http://ati.amd.com/online/mobilecatalyst/
Deze driver is btw alleen voor Windows XP, Vista users moeten de Mobility Modder (http://www.driverheaven.net/modtool/) gebruiken ;)
Of even wachten tot hun laptopfabrikant zijn nieuwe drivers online heeft gezet.
Vaak lopen de OEM drivers altijd enorme stukken achter op de huidige versies, daarom raad ik iedereen ook aan altijd die modtool te gebruiken :)
hey, interessant! ik kan sinds mobiele versie eh.. 8.231.0.0 (waarom ziet het versienr. er anders uit in mijn hardware properties?) van februari (!) 2006 al niet meer updaten op mijn notebook... en asus heeft nog drivers van ergens 2005... eens proberen!
Wat is zo vreemd vind is dat de XP drivers apart gedownload kan worden (dus display en Control panel afzonderlijk). Bij de XP x64 drivers moet je altijd het volledige pakket nemen, terwijl je simpel bij de installatie de control panel weg kunt laten.

Iemand hier een verklaring voor? Of is dit gewoon omdat ze te lui zijn om ze te splitsen :D
Ik zelf download de 32-bit versie in losse delen zodat ik een Nederlandse Control Center kan mee pikken. Dit vinden sommige mensen hier fijn.
Ik denk dat het daarom gedaan is. Weet niet of er bij de x64 versie wel of geen Nederlandse versie is. Als er geen andere talen zijn bij x64 zou dit een verklaring kunnen zijn.

[Reactie gewijzigd door Plato112 op 11 september 2007 14:59]

Win XP x64 is enkel in het Engels te krijgen...
Zijn de Vista drivers al uitontwikkeld voor de X1xxx kaarten ofzo, want opnieuw alleen maar improvements voor HDxxxx kaarten (de Quake4 improvement daargelaten). Ik mag hopen van niet, want nog steeds zet XP een aanzienlijk hogere prestatie neer in bijvoorbeeld Bf2 op mijn X1950XT dan dat het met dezelfde hardware en instellingen in Vista doet.
Ik ben bang van niet... Misschien dat SP1 voor vista daar wat aan kan doen? Het is algemeen bekend dat je met XP meer uit je hardware haalt dan bij vista nog... Leuk kaartje btw :) Deed het perfect op bf2 bij mij altijd.
Ik werk nu met de omega drivers maar die zitten nog altijd op versie 7.4 :( Zou de demo van enemy territory: quake wars hier ook mee werken of moet ik echt updaten naar 7.9?
Ik zal het wel eens testen maar duurt nog een uurtje tegen dat de demo binnen is.
De demo draait wel op de omega drivers 3.8 (CAT 7.4), maar ik heb wel win XP pro.
X1950 pro AGP

[Reactie gewijzigd door XTREEMRaGE op 12 september 2007 10:44]

Ik heb de nieuwe drivers geinstalleerd, maar start na het laadscherm met zwart beeld op.. :? Gaat lekker.. Lees dat voor xp je ook met 7.8 uit de voeten kan?
Klopt, dat gebeurt altijd :) Daarna gaat het het toch weer over?
de x1950 agp wordt niet hoger gesupport als versie 7.7. Staat direct voorin het changelog.

wel krijg ik sinds dat ik 7.9 heb opgestart soms ook de melding inifinnite loop in ati2dvag.dll. Heb een x1950xt pci-e. Met 7.7 kreeg ik deze ook heel af en toe. Gebeurt alleen als ik windows boot en voordat hij volledig is uitgestart al programma's begin te opennen. Op het moment dat ik hem netjes laat uitratelen heb ik nergens last van. vindt het maar vreemd :+
Vind ik best jammer. Heb laatst de X1950GT agp aangeschaft, inderdaad ook problemen met 7.8 dus weer 7.7 erop.
Hoop dat er nog wel wat voor uitkomt eigenlijk.
Naja, met de kaart hiervoor (9800 non-pro) heb ik ook lang met stokoude drivers gezeten. Of ik moet eens kijken naar alternatieve drivers van Omega.

Wel jammer dat ik nu de demo van Quake wars niet kan spelen. Of is het zo dat ik het wel kan spelen maar dan wat grafische dingetjes mis?

[Reactie gewijzigd door Vrijdag op 12 september 2007 07:57]

Ik kan met de 7.7 drivers Quake Wars spelen zonder foutmeldingen. En ik heb een X1950 Pro AGP.
Oh, in dat geval ga ik het vanavond eens proberen! Dankjewel!

Waar ik mij trouwens wel afvraag waarom ze dat zo vaak zeggen. Ook al met R6 Vegas, dat je "die en die kaart nodig had anders kon je het hele spel niet spelen" terwijl dan achteraf blijkt dat je alleen wat grafische opties mist.
De 7.9 Beta doet et hier wel op mijn X1950 Pro 512mb AGP van Sapphire.

Heb geen zin om de final te installeren. Zal nauwelijks tot niet anders zijn dan de beta neem ik aan.
De drivers geven hier een enorme performance boost op Splinter Cell Double Agent.
Ik denk dat de drivers steeds beter geoptimaliseerd raken voor Vista (x64).
Mag ook wel na zo een tijdje, maar het is zeker mooi meegenomen.

X1650 512MB op Vista x64 btw.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
