    "" IL-2 Sturmovik : Forgotten Battles - performance decrease when set to "Perfect" mode
    This issue affects the following system configurations:
    RADEON 9600 XT/ RADEON 9800 XT products
    CATALYST 4.3 and CATALYST 4.4 Display Drivers
    When playing the game IL-2 Sturmovik with "Perfect" mode enabled, a noticable drop in performace will be noticed when compared to using CATALYST 4.2 display drivers.

    ATI Engineering is aware of this issue and is investigating ".


    It ain't just a problem with the XT cars - apparently its all of them.

    Your framreates will double with 4.2 or earlier drivers

    Go get the old 4.2's - I reckon thats your problem

    My system doesn't run perfect settings very well at all even with the new 4.5's not changed my config file though, will it make much of a difference?

    YES.

    Change back to 4.2s or earlier

    water=0
    forests=2
    Hardware shaders=1

    - perfect mode no problem.

    We know that Anti Aliasing SMOOTHS out jaggies....

    but it only does it on straight lines and not on 3d shapes....ie it doesnt do it on a straight line sloping AWAY from the screen....

    BUT .....anisotropic filtering DOES.....

    it allows things in 3d to smoothly move away without jaggies....

    So....sat in an LA7.....looky here.....

    BOTH are on 6x Anti Aliasing, on a 9800 Pro.....on Cat 4.2's

    WITHOUT ANISOTROPIC....



    Not the 2 d parts of the canopy are SMOOTH......but as a metal strut leans AWAY from us....(green arrow) its jaggy!




    right.....with Anisotropic on 8x




    Note...for accuracy...I mistakenly CALLED the second file ".....6x" and it WAS deffo 8x cos trhats the option I used....there is NO 6x

    Just for the record...

    It DOES slow the beast down tho....but least we KNOW what it does VISUALLY now!
