Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7


10 Aug 2010   #1011

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, XP Mode, W8.1 Preview VM - 7 Pro x64 second remote tower
 
 

I suspected it would be something like that. I'm not the only one lately running into this type of problem with the older titles however as you can see from just discussion there alone.

For the Hydra vision feature AMD/ATI likely had to make a change in extensions in order to see the correct increase in number starting with the 10.5 version to get that going there and with the 10.6 before adding the Hydra vision into the mix.

This particular title was 98 as well as XP compatible when released so you could expect it was hard coded based on the old AGP architectures. When looking now in the system32 folder you will see the atiglpxx.dll file which sounds like it won't be seen when putting the 10.7 back on again.

Post #15 was also one to note there as well for listing the old title most effected for anyone interested. Sof I +II + III(last sequel 2005) are installed here as well as rtcw. Sof III is far newer and has another problem for that one however. Now to see if extracting that into the main folder root or the gl sub folder(refer to image attached) will work once the 10.7 is tried again.

Good catch on that one! stormy13 Now to see if it works out on these different titles at least.

NADA! Stubborn aren't they?! RTCW saw this.

Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: WolfSP.exe
Application Version: 0.0.0.0
Application Timestamp: 3bf17241
Fault Module Name: atioglxx.dll

Note the atioglxx.dll was the fault module when the "graphics driver not working" message appeared for that one. Sof II simply saw the same type of stopped working popup with similar error info while SoF I saw an entirely grey screen.

Unfortunately I think will be a continuing problem people will be making inquiries about for those that still prefer to run the older titles. On the 10.7 was installed a fresh install of DX9c followed the restart to insure the older DX was present to see that covered as well.

SoF I saw the same while the second attempt for SoF II saw...

Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: SoF2.exe
Application Version: 0.0.0.0
Application Timestamp: 3db457db
Fault Module Name: StackHash_621c

Added here as a reference.


I just came across one reply on the AMD site where someone mentioned turning off the Direct Draw in the 10.7 release to solve game crashes with a few recent titles. Age of Empires was one title as well as someone reporting improvement with online multiplayer games; no titles specified. This will be looked into here.

That will be worth a look to see if they found a few solutions for the older game problems. All I could get out of AMD's game site there was a "we're still working on it!" which didn't say much.

Has anyone got an explanation why ATI haven't fixed the overclocking issue,resulting in high idle clocks?
We was told when 10.5 was released that the only reason for the high idle clocks was to combat the problems that people using eyefinity were experiencing.
Now it seems like they dont want you too overclock-_-
-----------------------------------
EDIT
no noticeable changes or better performance for me
& seem to be getting lower fps in mafia 2

>>>back to 10.4

Great! Just great! That's all we need! You can see how that went at AMD Game Forums - Latest Catalyst Versions and Older Game Titles; Too Many OpenGL Extensions?

As you can see that was a fast brush off rather then allowing any chance to reply even run a few questions for any developers to answer back on.

As you can see from that copying the what file? OpenGL file without naming which one was the reply(brush off) seen there. The closest match found is the "atiglpxx.dll" found in the system32 folder. "gl" being OpenGL for the 10.4 version.

I restored an image to the second drive here being the same make and model for testing the IE 9 beta and may as well try the 10.8 there. I'll know soon enough if they addressed the OpenGL problems.

I wonder if that roughly translates as:

"Yea, we know, but have NFI what to do about it."
