The 10.7 ATI drivers seem to have stopped the flickering from a few of the past. http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx

Thanks for the update. I actually keep notes from your posts so I know which drivers to recommend to people. :D

Have been behind on the ATI drivers (reverted back to 10.4 to get another game to work right). 10.9 seems to work good with MXS so far.

Each time a new driver is released i simply download them and start the installer and completes it, is this wrong because my drivers shows up to be the latest version. Just wanted to know if it could have a downside.

It works for a lot of people but I just do a clean install every time. Can't hurt ;).

Just found this out, if you have a pink hue after installing the 10.10 drivers, here's the fix: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/show ... st45043731

Solved it for me, have no reason why that happens though.

The new CCC isn't bad, more clicking to change the 3d settings though.
