Sparverius, I hear you man. I have an RDram system and I've been stuck at 384mb of ram for over three years now.

At first, it didn't seem like a limitation but then LOMAC came around.... Now I'm in a position to spring for a new MB soon and it would be idiotic (imho) to shell out big bucks for some extra PC800 when I can put that money towards an AMD 64 motherboard.

I've upgraded my PSU and video card in preparation for the AMD board. My old Ti-4600 is sitting in a box now and I'll have to say I have a soft spot for that old card...for it's time, it did me right. \:\)

Well said Tailgunner, well said. I'm waiting to get out from under my holiday bills (and those &*%^*^heating bills) to buy an X800XT ATI card; but at over $500 I'll have to wait for a bit.

Another peaceful day at the Tailgunner residence. Tailgunner has just returned home from work to be greated by his wife just inside the front door...

TG: Honey, there's something I've been thinking about for awhile now, but I, errr, ummm...

TGs Wife: What is it?

TG: Have you ever thought about seeing other people?

TGs Wife: What?! WHY?! I though we were getting along fine?! Tears start to form in Tailgunner's wife's eyes...

TG: Oh it's not you dear. I was just thinking of, well, selling my body you see, to raise a bit of extra cash.

TGs Wife: Sobbing now...But you don't make bad money at work! Are you losing your job?!

TG: Oh no, nothing like that, I just need a new graphics card for LOMAC.

TGs Wife: Tears are now replaced by a pump-action shotgun...WHAT

TG: Well, you see, the guys at SimHQ said it was kinda old, and I've been getting a lot of stutters lately, so...

*BANG*

Hang in there Tailgunner. Framerates are important, until they cost you your life \:D .

Cheers

Mr B

I found the vid card on ebay for $120. Lomac runs well at 1024 x 768 with most settings on medium and heat blur is on. Check ebay for vid cards, lots of deals.

Guys, I have a pretty good system, 2.58 processor, 1g of ramm, and a 128 mb ati 6800xt vid card. Been running Lomac at 1132x856 (or what ever that setting is) with no problems.
Installed the 5.1 drivers. What a mistake! Both FB and Lomac are stuttering on me, no matter what settings I set them to. Any body else with this problem? I can't seem to go back to my old 4.11 drivers, so I'm stuck! Help!!!

He could eliminate the alchohol and scale back the kids demands. I did. It works. Then he'll have money for a decent vid card. Quit the boozing!

I've been managing with my old Gf3 Ti200 fairly well, and LOMAC is still a load of fun. I'm getting a Gf6600 now though, that sounds quite nice.

What's with all the hardware snobbery around here! :p
I'm not being snobbish! I have a 1.8GHz, P4! Only 512MB of RDRAM. When you have an old machine like me and can't afford a new one you should at least have a decent vid card. That's all I'm saying. No one in this day and age should be running a 64mb, pre-DX9 vid card. Especially when their PC is newer and better than my antique. What's the matter with those guys?

You could do a system restore...

But you shouldn't have to. There is a utility in one of your ATI folders called "AtiCimUn". Search for it and run it; it will uninstall all ATI software from your system. Then, reboot, allow Windows to load a generic VGA driver, and install 4.11.

In my case Plainsman, up until about 6 weeks ago, I had an antique computer AND an antique pre-DX9 vid card. I also had 200 to spend.

Now....I could have bought a reasonable vid card, not top flight, but good midrange. Then, it would have been shackled to an Athlon XP1700 and 512Mb of PC100 SDRAM and the mobo only supported AGP 4x. This would have struggled....

And give up drink...my god..are you mad sir! That way lies reality.....

Give up the devil's brew, my friend, and you'll be a better man. I neither smoke nor drink and feel fit enough to knock out Vitaly Klitschko!

If you give up the devil's brew and you'll have more money in your pocket for a better vid card. You should bury that Geforce 4 in the backyard today.
