    I came across this nice little customable launcher app for games, while I realise Catalyst has a basic game profile system, this app seem to do the job a whole lot better...and its free. One of the main features I like is that you can assign how many CPU cores to dedicate, task priority, as well as some of the compatibilty options all in once place.

    RadeonPro is a free utility to automate Catalyst Profiles to be applied upon user's game or application start. Just setup 3D settings for each game and have all those settings applied automatically everytime you play!

    No more desktop or keyboard shortcurts to remember, create it once, play it the way it's meant to be!

    iv'e been fiddling with this app with a number of games this evening and I'm really liking some of the hidden options, such as texture LOD which can crisp up low res textures etc...

    This is a great app!
    Here's some screenshots taken with the inbuilt 'screenshot taker'..

    (it also should be noted that I'm running several mods in Oblivion)

    Plus the LOD Texture tool is great!

    The ability to adjust Texture LOD Bias sounds good. Any ideas why this option is not present in Catalyst yet?

    I think it could be that this app is a private app and not made by the devs over at ATI. Who knows though? Now it's been used here maybe the'll take a hint.. :)

    Texture lod bias aspect has existed for ages and the well-known 'ATI tray tools' already has this option. (Not to mention NVIDIA control panel). So, it's time to introduce it in Catalyst too, hopefully they will. :(

    Yea it's canny like, I've been mainly experimenting with the 24x AA sampling (edge detect filter) with super sampling quality, which although can be done in catalyst its much quicker to swap settings around, and boy does it look nice...

    The main thing is just going through all my games which will take an age, just to find the sweet spot before it hinders performance, tested Dirt 1 with 12x Edge detect last night and makes up a lot for the very low definition on the textures in the game, if I get time i'll post some grabs later.

    @ Kemical
    BTW is that Quarls texture mod ya using there???

    No I'm using the OBGEv2 shader pack. This allows access to advanced shaders but takes an age to set up right... Get it wrong and the game looks awful.
