I just installed the beta drivers for Vista, only to be completely disappointed. I cannot play Call of Duty 2 because of a graphical error that is almost beyond description. While the gamestarts up, when I try to play it, everything is perfect except for the actual gun I am holding. Let me try to describe this to the best I possibly can. The gun is normal size, but it is as if the gun is longer than a ten story building. When I look at a friendly, the gun passes straight through him. When I look at the open sea, the lower half of the gun is actually in the sea. The gun looks completely fine texturally and the vertex shading and lighting is great, but what the hell is going on here? So I got so frustrated with COD2, that I decided to cool off with World of Warcraft, and guess what, another error almost beyond description. Ok, so the game is in a world, and when you look into the distance, then environment slowly fades into the horizon, where the mountains at the furthest point of the horizon are purple. But when I installed these new beta drivers, the horizon is on top of my screen, so that half of my view is blocked, and I am literally blinded by it. What's the deal? I would post some pictures of these bizarre occurances but I don't know how to. Somebody talk to me, what am I doing wrong?
