    ATI radeon 9000 and Springbreak

    Hello,
    After reading the readme file included with the demo, I found that the developers know about some issues with ATI drivers and springbreak. However it states that they have tested it with ATI drivers prior to July 2002, well......

    I have reinstalled the original drivers to my ATI radeon 9000 which are dated at 06/20/02 and the screen still flickers, jumps, and moves like an earthquake.

    So, what have I done wrong that deepred didnt do towards getting the demo to work properly. Im one of those people that usually just buys a game and then finds out, but with this new Satellite internet broadband, I have the luxury to download demos prior to buying games, and in this case Im having a problem.

    Here are my system and dxdiag specs:

    Windows XP Pro
    384 MB system ram
    ATI Radeon 9000 video card with 6.13.10.6102 drivers dated 06/20/02
    Sound card: as listed in dxdiag below.

    Well the readme suggests that you dont use alt-tab, but I do and it clears up this jittering of the game screen. Alt-tab to windows Alt-tab back to the game where I find it paused, it clears it up for a couple of minutes, and while it's a temporary fix to get me through the demo, it's not a proper fix that would enable me the courage to actually spend my money and fix the game.

    Im really suprised that Eidos/Deepred are not head over heels working with ATI to solve this, as prior to July drivers dont work as well as new drivers. So it must have something to do with some other aspect of the game and ATI cards. This is a huge population of ATI video card boxes out there, and they are only cutting their own throats by leaving those people out in the cold, especially people who actually purchase it to find out it wont play. I can only imagine what this board will be like once those people start coming over here.

    Silence is nice (Im a grumpy middle aged man), but I'd sure like a progress report on whats being done to fix the SB/ATI problems.

    It's a known fact (?) that ATI has bad drivers... Try ALT + ESCAPE instead of alt + tab and then click on it to launch the demo again that way it maybe works.

    Thanks for the suggestion, though alt-Esc works the same as Alt-Tab, when you return the game is fine for a couple of minutes, then has the problem again.

    I dont want this thread turned into a war against ATI or Deepred, but the ATI drivers are solid for the most part, I've not yet experienced any grahpic anomaly with the other 90+ games that I own, I have heard the same things as you Im sure, that ATI has always had problems with their drivers and it's not one of their strong points, but again they work with every other game I own. Still Im not pointing fingers at either Deepred or ATI, but would like this solved so that I can go buy the full retail version as Im sure other ATI owners would.

    Since the games demo is slight, I only had to alt tab twice to finish the demo since it took about 4 minutes to complete.

    I don't have something against ATI, it's just that from what I heard it seems like they have bad drivers. Anyway, if you have bought the full game then you probably wouldn't need alt-tab anymore? You can just save the game then or do you just want to use it to switch between programs and not to circumvent the saving function?

    Hi Citybuilder,

    I don't think you did anything wrong, it is just a currently known issue with the Catalyst drivers refreshing DirectDraw (2D) applications.

    ATI themselves have told us that the problems running Beach Life and/or Spring Break on their recent drivers will be corrected in the next revision of the Catalyst drivers, which they expect to complete in October-November. They are aware of the problem and we have been in contact with them about it.

    I don't have a Radeon 9000 handy to test, but Spring Break seems to behave on a Radeon 7200 using old driver builds .6071 or .6094...don't know if you can use those with the 9000, though.

    You could perhaps try reverting to the driver that comes with Win XP, or probably a better idea, don't buy Spring Break until after ATI release new drivers that we confirm work with the game.

    Hmmmm, didnt even think to circumvent the save function, was alt-tabbing because it refreshes the screen, which makes the awful jitters go away and allows you to continue on with the demo.

    I don't think you did anything wrong, it is just a currently known issue with the Catalyst drivers refreshing DirectDraw (2D) applications.

    ATI themselves have told us that the problems running Beach Life and/or Spring Break on their recent drivers will be corrected in the next revision of the Catalyst drivers, which they expect to complete in October-November. They are aware of the problem and we have been in contact with them about it.

    I don't have a Radeon 9000 handy to test, but Spring Break seems to behave on a Radeon 7200 using old driver builds .6071 or .6094...don't know if you can use those with the 9000, though.

    You could perhaps try reverting to the driver that comes with Win XP, or probably a better idea, don't buy Spring Break until after ATI release new drivers that we confirm work with the game.
    Thanks, thats what I'll do is to wait. I'll check out what the oldest available drivers are for the 9000, though I dont think they go that far back.
