Hello guys,

since I changes my graphics card from 5750 to 6950 i have some issues with Depth Effects and HDR while play EvE in Window Mode (didn't checked in FullScreen).

The 1st Screenshot is without Deph Effects while Docked in Station (here S-D in Deklein)

As you can see, in the right corner I have some issues which aren't displayed in 2nd Screenshot

Well at this moment Browser and Item Preview (e.g. Ship) are working fine.

This changes outside Station for a reason. In this Screenshot I activated Deph Effects and voilá:

While I deactivated it in 4th Screenshot, everything looks quite good.

And now Ladies and Gentlemen:

An Screenshot with activated HDR and Deph Effectes - my 24" LED Monitor loves it really.

To my System:

AMD X4 965BE with normal clock (@3.2GHz)
8GB RAM
Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 (dunno which Bios Version, but I can check if needed)
EvE is installed on a Vertex 3 SSD with lates FW
A Sapphire HD6950 with 2GB VRAM and Catalyst 11.9 (also tried older Versions)
Windows 7 x64 Pro

I tried to reset Cache, but it didn't worked. While I swapped my Mainboard I had to reinstall Windows, so I got a fresh and clean installation of EvE (ok, I imported Overview Settings ;)).

Please try and disable the Catalyst AI from the Catalyst Control Center and see if the problem persists.

Hi Xamother,

I have Catalyst 11.9 installed myself and I have the option to turn it off. From the CCC Preferences change to Advanced view and under Gaming click on the 3D Application settings, and there you should be able to find the option 'Disable Catalyst A.I'.

Maybe you installed the Rage Drivers ? I got 11.9 Update this past Sunday

If you have an AMD card, disabling Catalyst AI in the profile.xml completely fixed that problem for me. Here's the steps:

-Set the Catalyst AI part to highest and eneable surface format optimisation
-Close the CCC.exe and MOM.exe processes.
-Open profiles.xml with notepad or w/e, it's in appdata\local\ATI. Edit so that you have .Property name="CatalystAI" value="Disable" /. instead of "Enable".
-After you save the file, set it to "Read only".
-Go to your ATI program folder and launch MOM.exe.
-Reboot

The drivers I have are standard drivers from AMD website. I guess the options are different depending on the card.

Were you able to fix the issue you were experiencing by disabling AI from the xml file?

Try and change the Catalyst A.I. settings that you have (move the slider), and also try and disable the Surface Format Optimization and see if that makes a difference.

Sadly I really don't have any other workaround for this in that case. Could you please file a bug report about this.

Instructions on how to file a good bug report can be found here.
