ATI Control Centre

Have got a Sapphire 9600XP AGP card but I am having problems with ATIs catalyst control centre drivers. I load .NET and load the drivers and everything seems ok but when I try to access control centre, nothing, just the egg timer for a few seconds.

I have reverted back to the old control panel which seems to work fine, just annoying that the control centre does not work. Anybody else had a similar problem??

On another driver based note; Can you assign driver settings to individual programs? I play a lot of Steam based games, Day of Defeat needs the gamma quite high on my monitor but Counter Strike:Source does not. Want to be able to assign colour/brightness/gamma settings to different games/applications without messing about with control panel and the screen settings. Anybody any ideas??

  1. Unfortunately, to use individual game profile's you'll need to get the Catalyst Control Center to work...

    Hmmm, I don't know why it'd fail to work like that.

    On a side note, doesn't CS and Day of Defeat have their own Gamma settings in the game options?

  2. I have sworn off CCC. I hate it with a passion. When I went to 5.4 my scores went to the crapper. I just went back to the ATI control panels 5.4. NO CCC!

  3. i had a similar problem when i got my new x800pro, when i installed the catalysts with CCC the CCC itself just wouldn't bring up any UI, it fixed itself for me after i wiped all my video drivers (including my old geforce drivers) and reinstalled .net and catalyst and it all works fine and dandy now

    and i think 'overdrive,' the software sapphire ships with its stuff allow you to create games profiles aswell

    great minds think alike, fools seldom differ...
  4. As far as geting CCC to run, let me tell you what worked for me.

    1st = If you're using Zone Alarm as a firewall, uninstall it. It stall's the CCC services during windows startup, and fukcs everything up

    2nd = Uninstall .NET Framework 1.0 or 1.1, whatever you have, and install the <A HREF="http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/downloads/updates/default.aspx#.NET Framework 2.0 Beta SDK and Redistributable" target="_new">NET Framework Beta 2.0</A>.

    After that, your CCC should start and run just fine. NET Framework 2.0 also allows your computer to boot up quicker than with the earlier version, something everyone here can appreciate.

  5. I'd also like to say, that I dont use that crappy CCC because it sucks ass and is slow and I hate ATi for enabling features that are only available if you use it instead of the regular control panel and I know that this is a really long sentence but you dont really care now do you?

  24. I'm gonna have to be serious for a moment and ask you to remove those explicit and obscene pictures please. We DO NOT want Fredi to act on this.

    And a warning should be used man, seriously, that's just not work safe and far from anything people should see without a warning.

    Thanks.

  25. Yea, a warning should have been used. I would have felt like crap if somebody like Grape would have gotten busted viewing this thread at work.

    As for removing them?......Nope. I love you Eden, but it pisses me off that act like the little forum moderator all the time lately. I miss the thread crapping, n00b bashing, and Willamette Sucks antics being on display every time I log in.

    I'll take a banning over a continued existence in limbo here.

    I still find it hard to post here since I had Fredi ban Kinney anyways.

  28. Anyone who still plays the original UT? If so. then you know that OpenGL is the way it's meant to be played. ATi owners have found though, that flashing/missing textures are a way of life if OpenGL is used for this game.
    Not no more.
    Some guy at Beyond3d turned me(everyone) on to this nifty OpenGL driver, that makes the original UT look and play magnific....beautifa...err real good. Simply dump the driver into your C:/unrealtournament/system folder, and overwrite the GL driver that was put there during th 4.36 patch.

  34. Could you at least put the warnings on every post that had the obscene links?

    Even in the Other forum we do that for work safeness and to allow people to view only what they choose to.

    For every wacky thing I do here, there's an anti-Eden side of me, and that's the one.

    Quote:

    But I never criticized those. I've always loved seeing your weird posts here like that. The only things I object to in this forum is posting obscene stuff. Scammy got warned big time for stuff like that, and I think a lot of people don't want to see some of the things you showed, or others did, unless warned. That's all I'm asking.

    If you think I'm strict, check out my presence in the OTHER forum. Might give you an idea what I do to moobs (man boobs). :tongue:


    PS: Now might be a good time to have the nV kiddo banned again btw. :eek:

  38. Well GW says he had Fredi ban him, I dunno any more than that.

    But apparently he was acting very crudely back then. I wasn't there when it happened, so I can't tell ya what exactly was happening so he got banned. But if this week's posts by him are any indication, then it was justified.

  47. RoE's load times are hella faster than DOOM III. Definitely using up my PC's power appropriately. GFX don't seem any different IMO.

    Game is definitely fun so far. Then again, I'm so easily entertained that I loved the first.

    I felt bad for asking Fredi to ban Kinney. Everyone has a right to say their peace, to a certain extent. I should have been man enough to either ignore him, or simply deal with him.

    I'm glad he came back.

    Now have Fredi ban him again please......

  49. Dont use the leech word. Hopefully you're sharing files with others.....besides, if you share a bunch of files, you dont get stuck in queue, and get high priority status when downloading crap.

    I didnt use a torrent with D3 Resurrection, I simply did a search on <A HREF="http://www.shareaza.com/" target="_new">Shareaza</A>, and it turned up with what I needed. I(and a lot of others) are seeding the files right now. You can finish the download in a few hours if you're sharing files on the network.

    Here is the actual game file.
