Windows 7 beta 7000 x64

Post by genblood »

Has ne1 try the latest build of Spring with Windows 7 ?
I have a test system running it and the screen flickers
when running Spring. I'm running 2 ATI 4830 in crossfire
mode with ATI Windows 7 beta drivers.

I can run other games, but Spring is a no-go .. :cry:

Flickers how? Last I saw ATI has nearly no support for win7 OGL at all, and the latest drivers didn't even have it.
Do earlier versions work?

That could be the issue. I downloaded the Windows 7 beta
from ATIs web site. So, the beta has some support of
opengl, but still not a complete set..

I upgraded to the latest x64 vista drivers ... Still a no
go ... :cry: Most likely it's a issue with Windows 7 or
a combo of both drivers an Windows 7 ...

combo? Wouldnt that invoke the age old downgrading issue that resulted in a tonne of driver cleanup programs?

What I mean my combo is ...
One the drivers aren't written for Windows 7 properly ...
and the OS is still in beta ... so most likely
it still missing something opengl ext ...
