Granted it's not used in the majority of games these days, but lots of professional apps still rely heavily on it, as do many open source graphics-related projects.- Oshyan
Quote from: reck on August 31, 2007, 04:31:45 PMI've just uninstalled 7.8 and installed 7.7 but i've still got the redrawing problem I've found out it's only a problem on my main monitor, if I drag terragen to my second monitor everything works ok (same with blender) so why would this make a difference do you think? I could keep going back to older ATI drivers but I play a lot of games as well so don't really want to do this.Can anyone offer any suggetions to what I might alter to get TG2 working on my main monitor? Could it be some setting in the ati control panel?I know this is probably a ati problem not a TG2 problem but I can't find any info on this when I did a google seach.Thanks
Quote from: reck on August 31, 2007, 04:46:26 PMYeah found out by accident. But it seems this didn't appear in the latest driver version as i'm now using 7.7. Before that I hadn't updated for quite some time so dontt know/remember what version I was using before, and this version didn't have this problem. I think its strange how it's only affecting the primary monitor and not the secondary one. You would think if its a problem with opengl generally it would happen regardless of monitor.So any ideas?

I'm going to be installing Vista soon so hopefully this issue will go away. I know one thing after this after this my next graphics card is going to be an nVidia.

It seems both sides are slipping with their driver releases.

Quote from: reck on September 09, 2007, 05:35:35 AMWell I won't be buying an nVidia card till next summer anyway, by then I hope the drivers will have matured to an acceptable level.I installed Vista yesterday and TG2 is now working ok again, as well as blender.
