    since the last few cat releases ... i think from about 4.9's the text in my BF game has been a little strange as shown in the picture below

    everything else looks ok bar the ingame chatter ... any ideas guys

    cheers :)

    Turn on the Alternate Pixel Center option in the control panel to make it at least a bit better. The game engine has some issues with AntiAliasing.

    sorry m8 can you narrow that down a bit i looked for a setting like that and cant see anything like it


    im using the classic control panel not the CCC or are you on about BF's settings ?

    also not sure about it being the game engine as this is a new(ish) development for me never had it until recently also my nvidia m8tes dont have this problem but a few of my ATI m8tes do

    cheers for the help :)

    It should be found on the Direct3D tab on the ATI control panel, under a button named compatibility or maybe troubleshooting. :)

    No problem. :) You can also try different levels of AntiAliasing to see if it makes a difference. I don't remember but the text might get worse with the highest levels of AA.

    Problem also exists in battlefield:vietnam. Solution, for me, is to disable AA/AF, unfortunatly. At least know you aren't alone. ;)

    I had the same issues. The alternate pixel center and disabling AA/AF worked for me as well. I'll take the speed and the full text over the better looks anytime though :)
