Hi Hunter,

I am glad you asked... After playing around with the settings, I have some strange behaviour in - game. All the water is gone... no lakes, no rivers



My current settings are those:




The planes look beautiful in - game...

Edit: I tried now with the same settings and the water comes and goes and I found some texture - flickering in the cockpit...

Another edit: Went back to 4x AA and 8x AF:



I can live with that...

Your problem is most likely ATI or more specifically the Catalyst AI, which can't
be turned off anymore from the control panel. Battled ages to get AA *kinda
working in Black Shark 1.


*as in, it worked when it felt like it.

...this

I made good experiences with Omega drivers, but they don't seem to support 64 bit and development seems to be ended

Edit: OK, before playing around with the driver for the rest of my life, I'd better play the game:



This is as far as I can get it. Nice reflections...

yeah the Catalyst AI is junk...so I keep it on performance and that box unticked.
the AA issue I've had in Black shark was just a case of trying a different driver...as with some drivers they tend to mess a game up.

@Danasan,

Water gone or is it flickering?
and what card do you have?

I'll give you my full settings:
AA: x8 (Box Filter)
AF: x16
Tesselation: AMD optimized
Catalyst AI: Performance and the box unticked (don't bother with the Catalyst AI)
Mipmap: Quality
Vsync: Off
AA mode: Multi Sample AA
OpenGL triple Buffer: unticked (off)

@ Hunter:

Your settings seem to work so far. Whatever it was, everything is there now. Let's see how long.

Thanks for the support!

Hunter, notice anything different in this pic from CoD? Other then the fact that I resized it.

Err...my guess would be that you've tweaked something.
but without having anything to compare it with I don't know what there should be different.

Like it very much.

Always liked the "early" (BoB) camos the 109's had.

And I have to congratulate you. You've picked the talent very quickly.
(based on what you've shown here at Subsim.com of course)

Say, do you take requests? I might have something in mind. Tho, I can't pay you anything, being the poor little git and all that, but if you are interested,
throw me a PM and I try to give you as much details as I can. It's a late war ETO WWII thingy.

Really didn't tweak much, but I found out how to turn off the Info Box and that throttle box that is in the corners of screen. Never couold understand why they put those in there, always messed up great screen shots I thought. It is suggested that you go into the main CoD folder and make a copy of the userconfig, and save it somewhere. Then when you are in the sim flying some where, hold down the Left Alt key, then right click on the Info Box, you will get another window where you can close it. Select Close and its gone. Do the same for the throttle box in the left lower corner of the screen. One warning though, not sure how to turn them back on, but don't know why you would want to?

Now I'm trying to find the parameters that dictate how close you can zoom in, but haven't found it yet, seems to me we can zoom in closer in IL 46 then CoD.

Tried a career, it made me be french, so I flew about - returned back to base but couldn't figure out the throttle, made several attempts at landing but airspeed just too high. Then climbing out after a pass my engine cut out and I lolwaffled into the earth.

Then I became Deutsch (or should that be ein Deutscher?)






Nope, it's not made up, it's my first official RoF kill

The barn door can now be hit, and just on the other side was an S.E. 5

RFC planes are nice but they spend more time trying to kill you than the enemy does.
