8.641, newer OpenGL and CCC.
it fixed games that i dont play!!! good find anyway
i wont test it, but i'm sure many will want it
Yeah i'll be skipping it too as i don't have ToV, Nice find though.
after reading that, i was like... oh, maybe i will need it.
If you have any CoH at all, once you patch to 2.500 or above you're actually running ToV. The big patches they put out to make the games compatible, actually gives you the expansion - so ANY CoH players that have an up to date version, could get that crash.
ohh, fix for sims 3. maybe they finally fixed the trees.
And after reading what you said made me think about it too lol.... Just that TOV options are disabled Umm..
About to play a game of COH will see what happens.
they mentioned the crash was only on one map, 1v1 against AIs so it shouldnt affect most people.
i've already updated.. gotta love 7, didnt even need to reboot and its updated and crossfire working
aah well don't play 1v1. Just the 3 of us play 3v's 3-4 AI.
I like to know were my DX10 option went too lol. Used to be on a drop down menu but it's gone ha.
they changed its name, its the 'highest' quality setting in shaders.
Download size is just a modest 154,0MB.
WHY IS IT 3 TIMES BIGGER THAN THE DRIVER ITSELF?!
Spyre- "That game isn't compatible with AAA it says it even in the patch release notes for the game." (from Rage3d forums when the same thing was asked)
And i bet its 154mb cause it includes EVERYTHING.
Yeah, it's that big because it's cat9.8 international + AVIVO + .NET 2.0 + CCC. Some hotfix...
Did no one catch this???
So does this actually improve anything for any games besides those 4?
yeah, i was browsing around. apparently, patch 1.4 is supposed to fix the AAA problem but it didnt.
SF4 and Furmark scores were low with 9.8 on HD4770 with XP 32 bit.
After doing a clean install with the new 9.8 hot fix drivers my HD4770 performance is back on track. If you noticed any decrease in performance in any game or benchmark this hotfix may be the trick.
no. its a hotfix, not a new driver. It just adds stuff that never made it into the 9.8s
I thought all the Hotfix was was to make the driver compatible with AGP. If so then perhaps there should be significant improvements with this release. I can't tell with my P4 regardless, but it would be nice to know.
no, that would be an AGP hotfix.
This is a "fix the CoH and ghostbusters bugs" hotfix.
Has anyone used this with the RE5 benchmark app? I guess tonight I'll try with and without to see if there is a nice difference. I'm at work right now
I tried it with Triple 4850s 512 meg
It still does not function properly in Directx 10. The Directx 9 bench worked now without changing the name of the exe. Before I had to change it to FEAR. Now it seems like they just activated the DX9 exe and the DX10 still has major problems when you get to the 3rd portion of the variable test. It slows down and flickers. I didn't even bother with the fixed test since the variable didn't even work.
