View Full Version : A bug with series 70 and windowed games

05-05-05, 12:55 PM

Ever since I installed the first series 70 driver, when I play games in windowed mode the screen gets divided, one part showing one frame and the other a frame that was showing before.
When I alt-tab, the whole screen shows a frame that was showing long ago.

It goes away with series 60 drivers.

Any idea what causes this and what I can do?

edit: the screen always gets divided at the top of the screen I have above the game screen, like the calculator in the screen shot

Tried many of the 70 drivers. all of them had this problem.

I acutally like Horizons. tried wow and eq2, but didn't like them as much.

is there any solution for that problem other than returning to a 66.xx driver? (BF2 requires current drivers)

I got the same problem with Eve Online

I've gotten that in Guild Wars as well. It's fine when the game has focus though, so I'm not too concerned about it being there. Hopefully it doesn't grow beyond this though.

I'm just amazed that yehuda has a 6800 Ultra and plays a game like Horizons. I'll trade ya? :D
