kohan69 is still being judged by the masses

Default Latest batch of drivers (Catalyst 9.6+) are causing crashes in Thief Gold (w/ ddfix)

My system (no overclock):
ati radeon 4870 512MB
2x 2GB DDR2
asus p5q deluxe
windows xp 32-bit SP3

I played Thief1 last year w/ ddfix worked and everything was fine and dandy.
Now I got newer ati drivers, and am having crashes at either:
  • start of game
  • after loading into game
  • sometimes when checking map
  • sometimes when checking objective
  • sometimes after dying
and sometimes the mission briefing during loading text has garbage on it.

I tried Catalyst 9.8 and 9.10, same issue.
I went back to the driver I remember using last year (Catalysy 8.6) and no issues whatsoever. :weird:

What could be the issue?

(ddfix uses dx7 calls)
