Re: Reflection/Blur issue
I don't think I tried turning anything off... Should I have?
I tried the Omega drivers a few minutes ago, and they seem to be working better, with no graphical smears / blurs in poison gas located in The Pit level (and I lasted a really long time, too! If I hadn't grenaded myself, it'd have been even better). I got an email back from patje (Patrick, I believe?) and he told me how to get my laptop to run his driver program. I'll try that right now, since the Omega driver seems to have given me a bit of random slowdown sometimes. I'm not sure if that's just my faulty perception, though. Some graphical niceties seem turned off / down too. I'll try using the latest Catalysts and that tool right now, and I'll let you know how it goes.
Rolling back for safety's sake, and trying out the latest official drivers with the utility Sarkie posted in the link above.
