Re: GeForce 6800 Ultra - Flat Black water (perfect mode setting) in IL2-Forgotten Bat
The last time I had IL2 (merged with expansion and PF) and patched to v4.04, I played it in perfect water mode with the 84.25 driver without any artifacts or other strange visual issues. Try to update the driver to 84.25 and make sure you use "water=3" setting in the cfg file.
If this should not help you, try Oleks newer (beta) build of the water shaders which can be found on the IL2/Pacific Fighters Ubisoft forums.
