Hello there, I have bought an Radeon 9800 SE 256-Bit AIW last year and always was quite satisfied with it and the softmod, it gave me no checkerboard at all. But recently I noticed: when playing Direct3D-games that use Complex Shaders, such as Far Cry or Everquest 2 Beta, I get lots of checkerboards. I never noticed this up to now because I had absolutely no problems with other games. This only happens in Direct3D-games that use Complex Shaders - I can play Doom 3 without any problems for instance, and UT2004 as well (as it doesn't use Complex Shaders). I am currently using the newest Omega Drivers, but also tried different ones. Without softmod I got none of these problems, with it I do. My card is neither overclocked nor overheated. Is there any way to fix this problem you could think of? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
