I have an old Radeon x550, and I intend to use a dual monitor setup with 1280x1024 resolution each monitor (total working area 2560x1024) while the second monitor is supposed to be rotated 180 degrees. When I try to run X-Plane 9 with this setup the graphics are glitched. There is a vertical band on the second monitor 256pixels wide on the right edge of complete clutter while the rest of viewport is compressed on the remaining area. If I set the resolution not to have that last 256pixels its fine, add an extra pixel and everything is gone terribly wrong.
I know that this is a display driver problem because if I install the display drivers that come with the catalyst 6.12 (that I found after great pain) everything is fine and there is no glitch, If I install the drivers that come with catalyst 7, 8, 9 or 10 (I think the latest available for this hardware is the 10.2) then I have a problem. Plus noticed at least in version 10, even in lower resolutions in certain situations polygons blink frenetically in a very annoying way, I don’t have epilepsy but I can totally see that giving someone seizures.
Version 6.12 however is totally fine, the only problem is that I can’t rotate the desktop with this version (I only managed to rotate it on version 10.2).
So here is my problem, how can I get non-glitchy drivers that allow me to rotate the desktop?
