NFS-Underground and my vid card issue

#1
I seem to be having some issue with my vid card (9800Pro) and this game. It runs and plays fine except some of the text, notably speedometer, gear display, and several other text objects appear as blocks instead of text. It's weird because some text looks fine. I also notice the mouse pointer looks really "fuzzy".

Is anyone else having this type of issue?

I have installed the patch from the EA site already and nothing has changed. I am using Catalyst driver 3.9

hmm i didn't realize there was a patch. what's your AA and AF at? i'm running a 9500 Pro w/ no problems, and the Cat 3.8s.

Get into the ATi Control Panel, and set Texture and Midmap all the way to the right (max) in the Direct3D tab. Seems to solve the problem for a lot of people.

jawshoouh: AA=4x, AF=4x forced through driver. I have tried other combos to no avail though. You get the patch by opening the IE link in the Start Menu program group for that game. You just click a couple buttons on the website and it installs the patch for you. I kinda wish I had the executable though.

NetRyder: I think I've tried that already, but I'll take another look when I get home today. I could have sworn I tried all the different settings combinations, but there are so many I might have missed something.

my AA is 4x and my AF is 8x...i've also got 1.5GB of DDR2700 RAM & a P4/2.4. not sure if that even makes a difference, tho. you have that blurring/motion thing off in the NFSU options? i think that defaults on and i had some issues w/ that on, but once i turned it off, everything looks as it should...

That worked! Thanks. I can even turn all the AA and AF settings up and it looks nice. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
