    Haven't had the time to see if the cursor texture issue is still there with NWN2, but I have found something interesting with Crossfire. I don't remember this happening before, so to me it's new, but whenever you enable Crossfire the CCC gets you to reboot so it can properly detect the second card, and disabling Crossfire has you reboot again. I never noticed this with the 6.9 and 6.11 drivers, but all I know is that it's God damn tedious and annoying.

    I'll have to reinstall the 6.11 drivers, but is this happening with anyone else running Crossifire setups, or is this the norm?

    CCC never required a reboot for me enabling crossfire in 6.10 and 6.11 -- However, I have had to reboot in order to get crossfire working properly when switching from non-crossfire to crossfire enabled mode for the last two drivers.

    Hmm.. seems to me most of the new releases of drivers are ALL about CCC and not much in the way of game fixes or enhanced feature/tweaks. Just one more reason to hate CCC. They spend more time fixing that useless bloatware then honing the drivers it seems now. :(

    Yeah yeah.. I'm grumpy. Sue me. ;)

    Somebody has issues with the shadows on Marvel - Ultimate Alliance.

    The shadows look like crap, squares everywhere, it started since the 6.12 beta.

    My card runs great no complaints here, but you are right about the drivers suckin ass and I think I have already covered base on my view point of the whole .NET .2.0 just to run their official CCC once again I am sorry but thats ridiculous and should not be forced on people! A option yes but 3 official releases and all for crap that people don't want to begin with...WHY???

    2142 thats EA Games do you really expect anything more out of them? I bought Battlefield 2 when it first came out and the patches and updates still suck too this day I wont even install that game on my rig actually I will give the F@cking thing away thats what I think about EA and their lame ass games!!!!

    WHO WANTS IT FREE OF CHARGE? JUST PAY SHIPPING
