    Installed and running on 2 gaming machines. No new quirks created. Looks like a solid release.

    EDIT:
    I noticed the texture quality in BF1942 DC was degraded as it was in the 4.4 catalysts. I rolled back to 4.3 again. The degradation makes it look like the contrast is cranked way up. Graininess and bright areas are badly washed out. This may be a quality issue with the free DC expansion pack and not the drivers.
