    What's New in Omega Drivers?
    v2.6.25

    * Based on the Catalyst 5.4 Official drivers.
    * Updated a lot of the internal tweaks for Mobility 9200 cards.
    * Updated some other tweaks for all cards.
    * Removed some redundant files from package.
    * Added new option to installer: now you can select between installing with or without Radlinker, in case some of you can't use Radlinker for some reason or use another 3rd party tweaker.

    What's new for RadLinker?
    v2.034

    * Removed support for Windows 98 and ME.
    * Rewritten driver.
    * Cleaned up user interface.
    * Removed temporal FSAA threshold as it does not appear to be needed anymore.
    * DirectX 8 or greater is now required.

    Please visit my site for download and for further info on current / future updates. (and help me by clicking on the banners too) ;)

    Thanks and enjoy!

    UPDATE:
    Guys, for those of you having problems with soft mods, resolutions and installation, please try this version:

    http://www.omegadrivers.net/drivers/ati/rad_w2kxp_omega_2625a_7z.exe

    When prompted say YES to overwrite newer files every time, then restart and test. Let me know how it goes...

    Badass!

    I have yet to try any games, but I just installed, with minimal problems. The internet seems fine. Thanks a bunch Omega!

    Thank you Chaos for having such an awesome mirror. I use it everytime I download the Omegas!

    Im having some problems installing these. Unpacking the setup files worked fine, but when I try executing the setup it just hangs for a couple minutes and then I get a error message saying the "installation engine could not be started" "server blah blah failed"

    Cant figure out whats wrong...

    Great drivers ^^ but it appears the 1200 x 900 resolution was dropped from it for some reason..? Being it was the perfect middle-ground for my monitor (1280 x 960 knock my refresh rate down from 85 to 75 Hz, and 1152 x 864 is too small for comfortable work) ... well, really wish i'd have it back ;.;

    ...

    hmm just poked around in the cx2k_rad_omega file and the 1200x900 mode is still listed in there... but for some strange reason it doesn't work for me anymore. o_O

    hm now im unable to install any drivers at all, something is preventing me from initating setups for some reason. Anyone know what it might be? Perhaps ive disabled some windows services thats required?

    Any help is appreciated, id like to get back to wow as soon as possible without a whole windows reinstall :p

    going to take back my first comment.Half life 2 will not load using these omegas....diverted back to the whql 5.4s (DC used inbetween each install) now my pc is running as it were.

    Im not saying these drivers are shit..... they are just not working for me...
