    Yep, incredible, new drivers out, about time I say!!! :D

    What's New in Omega Drivers?
    v3.8.413

    [*] Based on the Catalyst 7.9 Hotfix drivers.
    [F] Fixed support for pixel perfect 1366x768 for TV LCD users. (1360x768 was also re-added)
    [+] Added new resolutions to fill the 16:9 gap between 1366x768 and 1920x1080 (1600x900@60hz and 1776x1000@60hz)
    [+] Added a new pixel perfect 4:3 resolution for 1080p LCDs (1440x1080@60hz) for those games/companies that offer no widescreen support. *cough*EA*cough*
    [+] Removed Overscan from DVI port, this means no more black borders when using DVI->HDMI cables/adapters to connect to an LCD TV.

    Known Issues:
    1) Since Overscan will be removed from now on from the drivers, if you need to connect your PC to a regular TV that DOES need overscan in order to view it properly, you need to install the official 7.9 CCC Control Panel from ATI after my drivers so you have access to the new "scaling" feature and scale the overscan to fit your needs.

    What's new for ATI Tray Tools?
    1.3.6.1047
    [F] Fixed localization for CrossFire dialog window.

    [*] Updated ini files handling procedures to be more compatible with Windows Vista.

    [*] Improved compatiblity with IE7 under Vista with UAC enabled???

    Get them on my website:
    OmegaDrivers.net - Home of the Omega Drivers for ATI & NVIDIA desktop/laptop cards. By: Omegadrive

    Enjoy!

    UPDATE 10/06/07:
    Well, confirmed by one of my insiders at ATI, there is a really strange bug running around with Cat 7.8 and up that is making all this mess with drivers not installing on some cards, mostly AGP cards.
    I will see if I can find a solution for this personally or if I get a confirmation that it is indeed a driver's bug and will be solved for a future release.
    In the meantime if you can't install this version of my drivers I suggest you install my previous version and wait for my next release.

    Sorry for any troubles this may have caused,
    Angel

    Welcome back! I gather since your drivers are based on the Official AMD drivers there still isn't any support for the X1950 AGP series?

    For cards that are not supported, you need to send me the card's ID so I can add it for a future driver set.
    To find your card's ID:
    Open Device Manager, expand Display adapters and double click the first one, go to the 'Details" tab and on the "Device Instance Id" option, there write down the sequence up till "&REV_" part, then do the same for the second adapter (if there are 2).
    Email me both IDs, your card model and bus type. (make sure to specify which string belongs to which adapter)

    Done, your card will be supported on next release. :)

    Any plans on a Vista release Omega?

    EDIT: In reading your monologue on your homepage I found the following quote: "P.S. No, no Vista drivers yet, I hate Vista so far, I will work on them thou, eventually..."

    Answered my own question haha, if you need any testers for Vista x64 lemme know, I would be glad to help you out been a fan of your drivers for awhile :D

    Wonder how these will work with my X850XT PE. The stock 7.9 ATI driver didn't work well at all with lockups and some other strange behaviour. Saw a slight increase in performance though when it worked so it would be great if this worked perfectly! :)

    Think I'm gonna dare to test this.

    btw, thanks for the new drivers :)
