Operation flashpoint demo and win2k
Posted 29 June 2001 - 03:25 AM
OK, don't laugh. I am using an ATI RAGE PRO, p3 650, 256 RAM and win2k, DX 8.0a. I am using a modified version of the IBM 5020 Rage Mobility drivers for win2k.
However, when I use any other drivers, the game runs fine.
The reason I want to use the IBM drivers is that they display textures in all other games perfectly.
SO, why does this happen with only these drivers with Operation Flashpoint. This is the only game which does this and so must be a game related problem - not driver related. PLEASE HELP.

Can you buy the game from somewhere that will let you return it for no real reason? EB run this kind of scheme, so you could at least try the real game.

If changing the drivers fixes the problems, then the modified drivers are obviously the cause of the problem. The game must be making various Direct X calls that the modifed drivers cannot handle. If the game was making illegeal Direct X calls, then the game would show these problems on a large number of computer systems.
I think you are either going to have to change driver revisions or get a different video card to solve this.
