Some time ago I was trying to find some information about setting up my ATI card....well i found it and will post it, maybe it will help someone else..

I set the ATI hardware renderer and selected Direct3D T&L Hal. In the ATI 3D settings I set Anti-Aliasing to 6x, set Anisotropic Filtering to Use Application Settings and set Vertical Refresh to always off. I can set an Xplode pro transition to any length and start playing in the center of the transition and the buffer fills very quickly......found it in a folder as a text file.....hope it will help others as it helped me...
