I updated my catalyst drivers to 12.10 and suddenly I have water that is flickering so badly it's impossible to play. If I switch off crossfire the flickering goes away but also those last important frames per second. I've search the internets a bit and can only find issues with stuttering tress, shadows or objects.

Has anyone found a solution to this? I've thought about trying a few different crossfire profiles but my brain didn't like the stuttering much and I'm afraid I will need a barf bag if I continue trouble shooting this anymore. I didn't have any issues with the last driver I used (can't remember which that was) so it must be Clod not playing nice with the 12.10 and crossfire.

Is your Crossfire profile type set to Default, or one of the other options? On other games, with the non-Default options, I've often had flickering like what you're describing. But using the 12.11 drivers and 'Default', I don't get any water flickering.

Thanks for the tips! I figured out what cap 1 was, found I already had it, set the twoworldsdx10 profile and gone were the flickering waves.

Got some flight time in a Hurri, downed a HE111 and followed it down. Quite cool to thunder along the roof tops, such a pretty game sometimes. I wish there would be some people waving at you when you go by but I guess they are all at the shelters.

Might there be a mod somewhere that makes it possible to hear what comes over the radio? All I hear is "Commander, glob mooomba one bluuuuuuuurrrb schwone". I searched the interwebs but couldn't find anything. The audio settings for radio does not seem to affect the ai radio traffic .. I suspect it's for in game comms.
