    DLed the 100+MB beheamoth (thank God for cable) and fired it up to be greeted by unreadable crap lettering. I'm running a GeForce 2 on official 6.31 drivers. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    I've tried the official 6.31 and 6.50 and leaked 7.52 with ZERO success.:( Reinstalling the demo hasn't helped and I tried fumbling thru the display options menu (tough when you can't read anything!) and nothing helps. Other games are fine, so WTF?!?

    for me, disabling wfog in the registry worked. i wonder if there are similar registry tweaks you could do with nvidia cards?

    I am using the 7.17 drivers, and upgraded to direct-X-8a, I did have problems with 8, however after installing 8a it worked fine. Just for the record: I was experimenting with different drivers and everything was messed up in the game. I uninstalled and reinstalled using 7.17 and 8a, it's great now. Anyone know how to straighten out Rocket Arena menu with the 1.27 point release?

    Hmm...when did DX8a come out? I Dled DX8 thru Windows Update when I noticed I needed it (Feb. 2).

    This is soooooooo annoying, cuz the game looks great on TV and in screen shots.:|
