    Oblivion doesn't work with the standard fbo mode
    It shouldn't reset the computer either. I mean, what kind of craptastic driver makes the computer reboot by trying to run a game?

    Anyway, maybe tomorrow I'll try with the usual registry tricks.

      I said I would forget about fglrx, but since this time it seems to support recent kernels and I've heard that Oblivion will be playable in wine with this version, I'm giving it a try. It seems to work ok with 2.6.31-rc6 (after re-exporting find_task_by_vpid). The performance is also good, but compositing is broken, as always (maximizing a window takes forever). And xv is also broken, as always (fucking washed colors).

      I'll try to play Oblivion. (edit) Nope, it doesn't work. In fact it RESETS MY COMPUTER after the game menu (it doesn't hang it, it resets it). Oh well. Back to the OS drivers.
      Oblivion works! in the past i put some screenshots up with the 9-7 catalyst 9-8 work better faster and some grafic bugs fixed...

      if you want i can test this again with the release 9-8 driver (not my faforid betas) and i can also make some screenshots. if you want with open amdcccl and version number and so on..

              Think of it this way: if you play games three years late, you get to buy them at a marginal cost compared to buying them new. :3

                  if openGL3.2 will come in the driver the situation will be better.

                    So you didn't do anything? Nothing in the registry, nothing regarding directx dlls? I have a 3850, what's your card?

                    The first time I ran the game the menu worked ok and the intro (something that I had never managed to see) was perfect, but the character selection was incredibly slow, and the background was all grey. I decided to quit the game, and suddenly I got a lot of corruption, the screen went into power saving mode, and... the computer restarted. After that, not even the menu worked ok (flickering).

                    BTW, it may be a 3 year old game, but it's fantastic :P
