    Omega Drivers Based On ATI's Catalyst 4.1 Released

    Omega has released a new modified ATI Catalyst 4.1 based driver suite for all Windows OS.

    Changes:
    Based on the Official Catalyst 4.1 drivers. (2k/XP/9x/ME)
    * Updated the profiler utility to the latest version (1.3.19). (2k/XP)
    * Changed/added some internal tweaks. (2k/XP)
    * ALL the special Omega resolutions now have refresh rates ranging from 60Hz to 100Hz, no need to select them in the installer anymore. (2k/XP/9x/ME)
    * Special resolutions now available for Flat Panel or Notebook displays. (2k/XP/9x/ME)
    * Re-included the 9700-9800 soft mod by popular demand. (2k/XP/9x/ME)
    * Did one LAST Omega Driver set for Win9x/ME since I did some mistakes in the previous "last" release. (9x/ME)
    * Hope to have fixed the installation problems in Win9x/ME. (9x/ME)
    * Removed Refresh Force from the package since I think is no longer necessary, Multires supports refresh rate locking, plus the ATI drivers also include a refresh override feature. (2k/XP)
    * Removed some language files that are no longer required. (2k/XP/9x/ME)

    Excellent set of drivers, got this these a few days ago, seems some nice improvements have been made.

    I do miss the Refresh Force Program, needed it a few times, but actually I think i dont experience the 60Hz lock, can play BF1942 @ 100Hz fine ??

    Anyway, nice to see Omega continue his development tweaks

    You don't need Refresh Force Program with newer ATI drivers, the drivers already have a refresh override built in.

    Settings> Advanced> Displays> Monitor> Refresh Rate Override
