Thief 3 - shadow corruption with 4.5 drivers
 
Just wanted to report that there is a bug with all the drivers after Catalyst 4.4 in Thief 3. The Read Me states that any other drivers besides Catalyst 4.4 will have shadow corruptions and I bought the game today - its TRUE. 4.5 beta and 4.5 original have shadows going through walls...
4.3 have it, and only 4.4 do not have it.

Another thing to fix in Catalyst 4.6!

File a bug report to ATI!

spyre May 26, 2004 10:25 PM

Yep report it to ATI please, I'll add it to the buglist since other people have mentioned it too

I wont be able to try that game til its released in England :(

Pr()ZaC May 27, 2004 10:00 AM

Perhaps a demo will be launched before the full game :)

MonarchX May 27, 2004 11:41 AM

The game is already for sale...so the demo may come out later. I just reported the bug.

Pr()ZaC May 27, 2004 11:51 AM

I know, I ment a demo before the UK launch of the game....poor spyre. No new games to play with :D

I KNOW GUN-FU May 27, 2004 02:47 PM

i remember a trick where i dropped a dll file or so into my game directory and that one game used that driver set. does anyone know?

i want to keep my catalyst 4.5's and not rollback but have thief use cat 4.4s. does anyone know this trick?

thanks in advance.

Tell me about it. I hate it when publishers take games out over here sometime after the us ofr jap versions. I've been waiting for thief 3 for a while now but at least I know it has problems with these cats before I get it. Mind you console games seem to take longer so I'm glad my main gaming platform is my pc.

I get the exact sasme thing with 4.5 . Walls flicker depending on which angle you observe them from. Really annoying for a game where light is so important

Guns4Hire May 28, 2004 04:36 PM

Im using the 4.5 and I dont have this problem at all. So far no weirdness playing Thief 3.

Not sure why you guys are having problems. Also the read me doesnt say what you said it says. It says only 4.4 cats and up are supported. Meaning both 4.4 and 4.5 shouldnt have any problems.

Again not sure why your having this problem Im not seeing anything remotely like what your talking about.

spyre May 28, 2004 04:43 PM

Apparently its OK if you dont have AA enabled?

Robmonster May 28, 2004 05:37 PM

I dont use AA but am still seeing these problems

No. Shadows/Lighting is still borked, just as it is in Pandora Tomorrow and Invisible War.

So it's 4.4's for me.... where I have to suffer again with having to turn the shadows off in Desert Rats vs Afrika Korps.

Same exact problems for me. Really quite annoying, especially in SC:PT and Thief where the shadows are really important.

Trunks0 May 29, 2004 05:45 AM

Iam getting this problem as well. Only I can't get the stupid Cat 4.4 drivers installed properly(No end of hassle. from the not uninstalling correctly to windows not installing them correctly and doing it it's own way :mad:. Had to use system restore)

MonarchX May 29, 2004 02:53 PM

How to replace Direct3D driver only? ATIOGLXX is for OpenGL as ***** is for Direct3D. Whats *****?

GameGuru May 30, 2004 09:10 PM

Getting borked shadows too with 4.5's

Too lazy to go back to 4.4's so I'll just wait for the 4.6

Robmonster May 31, 2004 05:10 AM

I'#m too lazy too :) Hope it gets fixed in 4.6 as I'm going to stop playing this game until I can play with decent shadows. It ruins the game to play with the flickering lights

spyre May 31, 2004 06:53 AM

But not lazy enough to not post here, which takes about the same amount of time ? :rolleyes:

Robmonster May 31, 2004 07:45 AM

Rolling back driver revisions takes a lot longer... and causes problem with other games...

You're supposed to be happy to install different drivers to play different games. It's all part of the fun ;)

Robmonster May 31, 2004 01:19 PM

I'm supposed to have working drivers in the first place... ;)

Always looking for the easy option, huh? Live a little, man. Take chances, live life on the edge. That is, after all, why you bought ATI :p

Same here. Though I'm running a 9000pro soooo, I thought that my card was supposed to be the buggy one.:confused:

MonarchX May 31, 2004 10:11 PM

I think it may be influencing only R3x0 and R420 cards. Any drivers besides 4.4 are giving me shadow flickering problems.

Dryhte Jun 1, 2004 10:37 AM

flickering in Cat 4.5
 
Same problem here - on the T:DS demo.

How do you file a bug report to ATI?

Thanks...
