ATI mobility X1600
I just got a new laptop for work and cannot get XTR to run properly on it. The computer has more than enough guts to run it (XP, centrino duo 1.83 GHz, 1.5 gb ram...) but the video is choppy and locks up. is there anyone else out there running XTR on a laptop with the ATI X1600 video card? and if so how does it run? did you have to change settings to get it to run right?

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Check out the XTR update post
sdlloyd

This is posted in the post I mentioned, on page 5, about half way down the page.

You may need to download that update. I was having the same problem on my 9700 Pro, but the patch he referred to helped make it alot better.


ATI drivers again. Please use Catalyst 6.8 as 6.7 solved the bugs for the x1600 cards but opened new bugs for the 9700 series.

I did have to completely re-download all my XTR software and the update, but it works fine now. I get 100-125 fps in full screen. I do get some visible waves in the trees when running window mode, but I still get 100+ fps.

I hope this helps

I tried a couple of things (updated the video driver to the 6.8 catalyst) to no avail. we did a google search on the ATI mobility chipset and found the solution below.

Download this and try it.

It worked for me. I am getting 60fps and everything is working
