  • ATI 7.3 Catalyst Drivers released

    http://ati.amd.com

    Some users report this has cured their memory handle leak, and random crashes (which is my problem at the moment).

    Not tried them myself yet, at work.

    Installed last night. I plan on having some gaming time this weekend (first in a month) so will report my results.

      How are you finding these drivers Shiner?

      I run the game at 1440 x 900 (but no AA or Ansio - find I don't need them at this resolution).

      Game still slows down over certain areas but on the whole, I think there is a slight improvement over the 7.2's. Frustraitingly the game still crashes on me (totally crashes - to reboot) approx 30 - 40 minutes into the game (including after a reboot, or the next reboot ad infinum) Hence the reason for not playing on-line lately, no point being part of a team if the "unreliability" factor presents itself.

      I was thinking along the lines of the card overheating. But I can play GT Legends all day long running a Logitech G25 setup with no problems. The same running Prem Pro and piecing together the latest family yawn-buster. Plus all the other programs/apps/games (F4AF,Lock On)!

      Totally unrelated but here are two observations made during a home made "fly about" the Island this afternoon.

      1. The Ammo truck re-supplied my AH-6 once I shut down the engine but only did a partial re-supply with it running.

      2. Team Speak Overlay. Ran without any stutters or FPS loss WITHOUT TS running! (Go figure). So I tried a quick experiment and reduced the bandwidth used by TS from Unlimited, to 128k - However, no noticeable improvement. The Game still staggered along if I had both TSOL and TS running.

          It is an unhandled exception thrown from ArmedAssault.exe. Without any source to trace the line I doubt you can get much out of it.

          The fault address is the memory address that was pointed to when the fault happened.

            I haven't noticed any change, but arma runs nicely on my machine regardless. Played about 8 hours today with only a single crash that ended my gaming.
