Windows 7: Falcon 4 AF graphics issue

Falcon 4 AF graphics issue

Falcon F4 AF running on my brand new Systemax machine, specced below, has a z-buffer problem. The external view of the aircraft has components that should be invisible, visible. For example ordnance, shadows, and wheel well covers and other panels "missing".

The BFOpsLog.txt file includes the line (repeated) : DXcontent: SetRenderTarget: No z-buffer support ! ! !

I have tweaked the graphics in the game and set it to HAL, i.e. not HAL T&E, but no change.

Running the DirectX diagnostic shows no problem. I can find no relevant tweak in the ATI Catalyst (graphics card) program that came installed in the machine. I tried setting OS compatibility back to Windows XP, where I have previously run the game on my old machine without problems, but no change.

The SYX SG-1601 Core i5 Gaming PC runs on an Intel Core i5 650 3.2GHz processor and 8GB of DDR3 memory. It uses the Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system and an ATI Radeon HD5770 1GB video card. Other features include a 1TB hard drive, DVD±RW DL optical drive, a media card reader and gigabit LAN.
Direct Dx version 11
Radeon HD 5770 Driver version 8.741.0.0. When I tried to check for latest version at ATI all find is Catalyst software suites version number 10.8
Windows 7 home premium 64 bit build 7600

Does anyone have advice or a fix?
