    Has Omega ever thought of releasing a "light" set of drivers? I don't use any of the 3rd party utilities he includes with his drivers, as I'm sure many of his fans do. He could release a light version with only the drivers included, since he seems to finish his work well before the 3rd party developers do, so he ends up sitting on essentially finished drivers that could go to some use.

    Ahhh, to dream....

    i would recomend two downloads, one with utilities and the other just drivers. that sounds good to me, it will reduce the download size, and give applications to those who want them, and quality for the other. of couse i think one or two of those utilities is essential to omega driver package tho.

    To my knowledge, the utilities he packages with his driver set are small to begin with..Radlinker probably doesn't top a mb, neither does atitool, and multires is only 130k-ish as well..At most 3mb of tools. I don't think any of the tools are required for omega's drivers to function though.

    hrm... he should try and slim everything down... the unian drivers were like 12mb, and also included extra tools, altho it didnt include multiple video cards and laptops, which i belive is just added inf file adjustments? mabe omega has added languages too?

    1st: The difference between the FULL and a LITE package would ONLY be 1.7MB, so there is no point in doing a LITE version.

    2nd: I need to included all languages since my drivers are used all over the world, that means no english version only.

    3rd: The drivers still smaller than ATI's full package.

    4th: The Unian drivers are so small because they made the installer take care of the drivers installation, in my case, I have to do a separate installer just to extract the files and rely on the ATI installer to take care of the driver's installation, that alone consumes more than 3MB and I can't do it any other way since I'm no programmer.

    5th: I have been reading this thread since it started but I kept from posting any info on the drivers so you guys can fight it out with rumors. :evil: :D

    6th: The drivers will be released today (07/17/04), even if I can't get all the tools I need ready.

    So there you go...

    Thanks for all the info Omega! The point I was making about a light version of your drivers was availability, not file size. If your drivers are finished on x date, but you have to wait a week or two for the 3rd party apps to be released, you could release a light version of the drivers sans 3rd party apps. Those of use who are only interested in the driver portion or your set could get them earlier, and those that want the third party apps could wait a bit for the full release.

    Would you ever put in a complete temporal AA control panel of some kind? To do things like change the settings that can only be done via editing the registry now.. like the cut-off framerate and whatnot?

    i think you shoudl team up with someone who knows how to program omega! it would provide your people with even better drivers. i had many idea's myself, but i dont know the first thing about modding the drivers, i would have to look and compaire all the drivers out, and i dont wana do that. but i dont work well with others in projects.
