View Full Version : 5900xt and halo

i cant get halo to recognize my 5900xt as a valid GFX.
it just says that it is unknown.

this means that i cant run the pixelshaders 2.0 in the game.. and that suxxx.

any of u guys experienced the same?

If you vid card manufacturer has BIOS updates I would do that. I just got my 5900NU yesterday and that is does Halo fine with no problems. I thought the XT was just a slower memory speed anyway. I even had an 5900SE which had slower memory and that flew through Halo.

start halo with a shortcut with -use20 at the end, try it, it might work....

mmmm... you have to add a line to the config file with the hardware ID of a 5900xt. then again, that seems iffy, because it doesn't support the 5950U in the config file but it runs anyway. FUNKAY.
