GEO colors keep changing!

After having been away from VRC for awhile, I logged in yesterday to do some controlling. When I did I noticed some of the colors of my [GEO] section obects (coastlines) had stange colors. I double checked the SCT2 file and everything looks good. I actually haven't made any changes to it since the last time I logged in and everything was fine.

 

During the session I noticed that when I received text messages the colors would change again. Very strange.

 

I uninstalled VRC, rebooted and reinstalled. Same situation.

 

Any suggestions on what might be wrong

 

Thanks,

Mike

Jacques,

 

Yes, it appears to only be with VRC. I'm using an ATI Radeon X850 with up-to-date drivers. The only thing I have done with my video card is tweak it for FlightSim FS9 using Radeon's ATI Catalyst program. I thought that might be a problem, so I reset it to default values and I still get the same problem.

 

Thanks,

Hi Mike,

 

I have a Radeon X1600XT and I have found that the 5.1 or 6.1 catalyst drivers are the best for VRC.

 

I installed the 9.1 drivers recently and found that fine line drawing was messy and would constantly cause color clashes with overlapping lines etc. I am using the 5.1 drivers at the moment with no problems in FS9 (not sure about FSX) and VRC.

 

Newest drivers are not always the best.

 

Cheers!

Paul.

Hi Mike,

 

Oh and a word of advise. Uninstall the catalyst control center and install a program called ATI Tray Tools by a gent called Ray Adams. It is far more configurable and takes up less resources on your computer. Especially with OpenGL features, the latest drivers and CCC don't really handle OpenGL all too well. Even with older drivers the latest CCC doesn't have all the OpenGL features listed.

 

ATI Tray Tools will solve that for you.

 

Cheers!

Paul.
