Trouble starting 2.2
« on: January 13, 2008, 04:01:33 am »
I can't get 2.2 to start up.  It brings up the initial console, the screen flashed black for a second then return to the start up console with the following message:

I've got an ATI x850, I'm running the 7.12 version of the Catalyst drivers.  Other GL programs work fine.

Any ideas?

for whatever reason your system is using the windows gdi driver (not hw accelerated) - try to install another driver, maybe that helps

xp or vista? (looks like xp)

Same problem with 2.2 here. Testet we new installed WinXP (32) and Vista (64)

CPU: Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 (newest BIOS, newest Driver)
GPU: X1800XT 256MB (Cat 7.12)
Sound: Creativ Audigy2 (newest Driver)

2.1.1 runs with Cat 7.9, so i will test this driver.

Yep, this is on XP.

I tried the 7.9 drivers as Dana suggested and they appear to work. The game starts at least.
Is there anything for y'all at UFO:AI to fix or is this entirely ATI/ADM's problem?

I've had the same issues with the latest drivers. I'm on Catalyst 7.9 also. I can only hope the situation will fix itself when ATi releases more drivers.

On a side note, with anything after Catalyst 7.4 or so, I can't get any windowed OpenGL application to render anything as long as it is on my main monitor. It renders properly when I start it in fullscreen (no alt-tabbing!) or drag it to my secondary monitor. If I switch the primary/secondary roles for my monitors, OpenGL renders properly on both monitors. I have no idea what causes this.

I'm having the same problem, Vista x32 / Cat 7.12 - X1950Pro. Running executable as administrator w/compatiblity for XP SP2 & themes disabled.

Has anyone ran the game successfully under Vista w/ATI graphics card?
