View Full Version : Problems with G3 and Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition
12-20-2004, 05:56 AM
I get this error "Error creating effect ShadowReceiveDirectionalOpaqueFFP" when G3 launches. The game ran successfully until I ran 3DMark03 and 05. These two benchmarking applications shouldn't have an impact on G3. I've rebooted the computer and that didn't solve the problem. The only way to remedy this is to uninstall the ATI drivers and then reinstall them. Why is this happening? None of my other games/sims have this problem... not even G2!

A benchmark program sets and resets hardware and one of them is not leaving things the way they found them. That's why reinstalling the ATI driver fixes things. Not a G3 bug.

If it isn't a G3 bug then why is it that none of the 200 PC games that I have are having issues? Please don't provide easy out responses.

It is suspicious that you only have problems after running the 3DMark suite. I'll do some research and post here if I find anything.

I agree that it is suspicious, but 3DMark is rock solid and is used by millions of gamers who tweak and push their systems. In the 5 years I have been using Futuremark 3D benchmarking products, this is the first time I've seen software act like this. Given how bug ridden G3 is, I am not all that surprised something like this has happend. A work around or fix would be appreciated. Thanks.
