It Lags on lowest quallity to the game ;(
And shadows still are glitching around and my video card is really strong everybody who has ATI Radeon HD4000-8000 Series lags, i think ATI cards (who are made for games) doesn't support some shaders or shadows

i had the same problems with a 4850 512mb card. i updated my graphics drivers. got the new catalyst package. my divers were only about 3 months old, but the newer ones are about 25 days old. those are the ones you need. go on the ati site.

still get some glitches, but its MUCH better than it was. its playable now.

If you have windows vista 32bit then download this:

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_c...

If you have Windows vista 64bit then download this:

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_c...

If you have windows XP home edition or Professional 32bit (Doesn't matter what service pack) download this:

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_c...

If you have windows XP home edition or Professional 64bit (Still doesn't matter what service pack) download this:

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_c...

If you get errors installing don't worry just press ok or something, or if it shows in end of installation failed don't worry everything is going to work just restart your PC all done....

But the shadows are still there.

Seems, like problem is in your Video card try updating your video cards drivers from original CD or download them.... if you would tell me what is your video card i could get you link where to download drivers for your video card.... Not always there are all drivers in original CDs sometimes you need to get them manually downloading and not always they are latest

Well, if this still doesn't work then probelly you downloaded wrong driver from link list like wrong windows... or its becouse, when you restart PC and screen doesn't turn on and you restore to last good configurations what can couse driver not install sucesfully... choose start windows noramlly and see what happens... if still doesn't work, ATI HD cards needs another cooler so you can get one from friends or buy one... or just get it from other computers and put it on your video card.... try unpluging cabel and plugging it back....And try putting other video card in your Computer and update it see what happens then to
