What kind of performance are you getting with D3D?

I got OpenGL working earlier at 140-150 fps with a peak at 220.

Now it's at 50-55 and the sound isn't caching and I don't know where to set that option.

D3d is 50-60 max.

****ing new card.

You have updated video card drivers and the latest detonators? You may have to do some .ini tweaks. I get over 300 fps when looking at the ground in D3D in regular UT.

I'm 90% sure everything I'm running is up to date

Maybe some syphilletic computer virus is reaking hav-oc. :( There is always re-installation, that is, until oo7mike has steady net access, or if Nova still came here.

But why would I use a driver from January of this year rather than the one issued with the card when it was released in October?

Look for the latest drivers....not the older ones. ati radeon card drivers are like nvidia's 1 driver works for all.

well its know that the radeon doesnt performs too wel in ut atm, drivers arent too good yet, in the future they will prolly have much better ones

i estimate the radeon will be better later... it's still only ok with the opengl fix for UT

That Open GL .dll fix realy made a diffrence in my machine....not so much as a performance boost but just lightening up the maps. Everything seemed so dark before...now with the updated OpenGL.dll it realy looks diffrent!! Better.
But on some servers that driver seems to make the players skate around on one foot!! I took a demo last night and everyone is just on one foot slideing around the map!! The other in the air... Wierd!!!!
Just some servers......

thats normal, the new dll actiavates s3tc texturing, you cna turn if ot in the ut.ini under opengl, if a server does not support s3tc texturing while you are using it, youll get the screwed player slide stuff, server his prob
