Agp 3850 and 8.7 drivers

Hi guys,

I have installed the 8.7 hotfix drivers for my agp 3850 graphics card, i got this card as a replacement for an x1950 pro that was faulty, now alot of games wont run and i ran Realtek opengl viewer and it reports that some of the opengl drivers are missing. Obviously that's the problem, has anyone else had the same problem and are they missing from the 8.7 drivers?

I would reinstall the drivers but if it's a problem they have then it's pointless.

Many thanks

Dead :)  :)  :)

Completely remove all traces of any ATI drivers then reinstall the 8.7 drivers.
I had a similiar problem when going from 8.6 to 8.7.

Couldn't play Prey which is Open GL with 8.6 then I cleaned out the 8.6 and did a fresh install of 8.7 and I could play Prey no problems.

hi guderiancol, i have been playing quake 3 and wolfenstein et, with good frame rates on et of 86 to 92 fps.

Well... there are agp hot fix 8.8. Hmm deadringer, are good 86 fps in et?.
Know that. My rtcw run over 125 fps and 333 again.
I have the magic tool.. look in your console and type r_primitives 2, it comes by default in 0
It will fix your poor 92 fps and u can start over 125. Try and tell us how was your test.

I played railgun map full graphics setup,full 20 man server and typed the command in console and was little change to my frame rate on fraps.
