check at mw3.org, there are fixes and work around for most newer nvidea cards and a fix for ati is currently being evaluated.

Yeah, I participated in that thread as well, but the last post (except mine) was a long time ago (regarding ATi I mean).

Do you mean me? That's for NVidia cards.


The thread I meant is http://www.mechwarrior3.org/wforum/viewtopic.php?t=3234

try going to ms update and run dxweb set up. mw3 uses an older version of directx, dx web set up searchs your system for installed games and installs the compatible versions of direct x required for the detected software on your system.in the case of older games/newer vid cards the newer vid cards dont come with older directx files, dx web rectifies this.

let me know if this works for you.

The DirectX setup does not do this. MW3 uses an older version of DirectX, yes, but the DirectX 9.0 End User Runtime Libraries have full backwards compatibility with all the previous DirectX versions. The issue lies within the Video Card driver and Hardware.

Unfortunately not :(. Engine is still largely the same and thus the same problem happens in Pirate's Moon.

Ha, I just got a 4870 effin cheap and thought it was the shit ... tried to play MW3 -> failure
At first I was like ATI ? No way, driver and compatibility issues all the time, and I was right  ;)

Atleast I can get play MWLL well with it :D

i have a raw file that was created for crimson skies,which uses the same engine as mw3 that was created to resolve these issues. it has not been adapted to mw3 as yet but should work. it was made for newer ati cards, the cs ppl say that it works for all but 2 of the latest ati models,the 2 being 4890 and 5770. let me know if you want to try to adapt the files for mw3 and i will contact you to discuss it.
