Still no changes all the ugly spots remain. Reverting to Cat 6.3 is still the best option

I tried out 6.10, and they are terrible. After I installed them my computer became awfully laggy and slow, that it was impossible to do anything. So now I am back to version 6.09 (which worked fine before) and now everything seems normal again.

Why can't they just make some decent drivers?!

I am disappointed in them. :( Since Cat 6.4...

Omega does not use the ATI Control Center. That's the first thing they strip from Catalyst. You can read that and more in their Radeon Omega Drivers Readme (http://www.omegadrivers.net/ati/omega_ati_readme.php) Abraham. ;)

I don't think, think is the real issue with TR-L is it? Why aren't they even TRYING to get that shadow-thing fixed?
I guess there are by FAR more people out there, beeing annoyed by those ugly shadows, than by the fact, that CrossFire might lower the performance...

That would only apply if you had a crosfire setup (I believe) - two graphics cards linked together.

When I played on Legend, I had 6.6 installed I think, and it worked fine for me. And I havent played on Legend lately anyway..

Legend plays fine of course (on all Catalysts including the newest). But the issue is the shader- and shadow corruptions that occur since Catalyst 6.4!
