I could only find 10.3, so not sure if it's a typo, but the release notes for 10.3 mention BC2
•Battlefield Bad Company 2 Fix - horizontal lines are no longer observed when running an ATI CrossFireX configuration
•Battlefield Bad Company 2 Fix - flickering and black square corruption is no longer observed when running on single card ATI Radeon products
•ATI Catalyst Control Center – forced on Anti-Aliasing is now supported in the following titles: Supreme Commander 2, Dirt2, Avatar and Battlefield Bad Company2 (single GPU configurations)

The 10.4 preview is not on the ATI downloads page, you can only get the preview release from the article - http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pa ... otfix.aspx

It's no good for me, it's for the 5xxx cards only, and only fixes DX11.
DX9 loads super fast anyway, but foobars the texture on the shielded MGs so users can't see through the glass pane.

Thanks for the link Piers.

I haven't noticed any issues even when I had the 10.2 drivers, but I'm always prepared to give something a go if it can make it quicker. They do say the 4series driver should be out next week so maybe that will fix up any glitches you still have.

This hotfix cut my level load times down from ~30s to about 3s. (Radeon 5870)

The 10.4a (preview) update is now out for people that have inferior graphics cards.

I'll skip it, it's only for Windows 7 and Vista really.
