06.17.01 new version & screenshot

rt 1.2 is now in the final beta stages. i'm finishing up 1.1.94 which will be the last public beta; 1.1.93 is currently the latest released build. i also put up a screenshot of 1.1.94 so you can see how far things have come :)

05.17.01 radeontweaker 1.1.8 (the "back in 88" release)

we're getting much closer to 1.2 with this release. lots of new features, a couple bug fixes, and a big cleanup of the code.
version 1.1.8 - 05.17.01 (the back-in-88 release) 
 * reorganized the tcl&dvd tab
 * added a ten-second timeout to the overclocking 'yes/no' dialog
 * made radeontweaker fit nicely within an 800x600 screen
 * minor cosmetic improvements
 * added 13 direct3d keys and 10 directdraw keys
 * added gdi and hardware cursor options to win9x
 * added 'disable file protection' option to win2k/nt
 * added an 'info' menu and implemented a 'driver details' dialog
 * cleaned up a lot of callback code which allowed me to turn on
   compiler optimizations - radeontweaker is now a smaller file
   and uses less memory
 * gave the installer a purple&black background.  oh yes, it is
   rad. =)

05.12.01 radeontweaker 1.1.7 (the "the walls-dripping-pink" release)

just another development snapshot, not too many changes from the last. i added a couple profiles you might be interested in.

05.07.01 radeontweaker 1.0.3 (the "would you fsck me? cos i'd fsck me." release)

here it is, the first update to the radeontweaker-stable in nearly a month. i've backported all of the bugfixes from the 1.1.x branch as well as updated the documentation and profiles.
version 1.0.3 - 05.07.01 (the "would you fsck me? cos i'd fsck me."
 * stopped radeontweaker from starting in 16-color display mode
 * radeontweaker will no longer load upon startup if it has no
   task to complete (i.e. set the clock speed, gamma, etc.)
 * updated documentation
 * fixed problem detecting async clocks
 * fixed win2k driver detection problems
 * the uninstaller now cleans up rt's registry settings
 * altered the docs to make enable/disable recommendations clearer
 * added more accurate rounding of memory and clock speeds
 * spell-checked the code
 * set the r6probe files to be 'shared' so that one tweaker's
   uninstall program doesn't delete them without user confirmation
   since all three tweakers need them
 * fixed memory timing retrieval
 * synced profiles with radeontweaker 1.1.6 and added one for
   tribes 2

05.06.01 radeontweaker 1.1.5 (the grrl-on-the-frontline release)

yay for late nights coding! over the past few days my inordinate ammount of free time has allowed this release to escape my grasp and make it's way unto the world. enjoy :)

update: support radeontweaker development! i'd like to thank everyone who supports this project; your e-mails are a constant reminder that people do appreciate this. lately i've started getting mail offering 'reinbursement' for my work, mostly along the line of warez. i don't have much of a use for that; in fact, i try to only user legal, free software now-a-days. anyway, i decided to set up a paypal account. if you're interested in supporting my programming, feel free to make a small $5 donation to fflewddur@dropline.net via paypal. cheers,
- todd

version 1.1.5 - (the grrl-on-the-frontline release)
 * added support for resumefix.exe and made rt play nice with
   rage3d tweaker - thanks for the code, himself :)
 * added hotkey support via setgamma.exe
 * shortcuts now use the icon for the executable they point to
   instead of radeontweaker's icon
 * altered the docs to make enable/disable recommendations clearer
 * small librt optimizations - the executable file size is smaller
   in this version than the previous version for the first time
   ever :)
 * added a counter-strike/dod profile

04.21.01 radeontweaker 1.1.1 (the fantasia-lite release)

i'm back home and coding away. this is an unstable development release, but if you're feeling adventurous, it's got some nifty new features.

   16 colors

04.13.01 radeontweaker 1.0.2 (the 747-almost-every-day release)

ok, it would seem that i suck at finding bugs. this release includes a couple fixes that should have been in 1.0.0 but blind lil' me didn't see 'em. oh well. i'm taking a vacation for the next week, so i won't be able to reply to e-mail as fast as usuall. be patient. :) i've also made the first official release from the development branch. 1.1.0 is available from the same site 1.0.2 is, just hit the 'download' link on this page. later :)
version 1.0.2 - 04.13.01 (the 747-almost-every-day release)
 * fixed memory timing/latency issues; they weren't being loaded
   when window's started
 * fixed another dead e-mail link
 * corrected memory timing documentation

version 1.1.0 (the coffee-in-shanghai release)
 * added fifteen new registry tweaks; radeontweaker has finally
   caught up with raid-on tweaker ;)
 * added 'create shortcut' button to the profile page
 * added the ability to run a program via the command-line (i.e.
   with one command you can start rt, load a profile, start a game,
   and exit the tweaker.)
 * loading a profile via the command-line now functions properly
 * added 'refresh settings' option to allow rt to display the latest
   registry settings without restarting the application
 * added ability for memory latency/timing to take effect at boot

04.08.01 radeontweaker 1.0.1 (the waltz-the-razor's-edge release)

a couple small bugs have been fixed and a couple new profiles have been added. time to get to work on 1.1.x :)
version 1.0.1 - 04.08.01 (the waltz-the-razor's-edge release)
 * fixed 'pure registry' bugs
 * added 'black & white' profile (thanks sifer!)
 * added 'final fantasy viii' profile (thanks whismerhill!)
 * fixed 'update profile' bug; the title-bar text wouldn't change
   properly if profile 1 was loaded and modified but profile 2 
   was selected to be updated.

04.04.01 radeontweaker 1.0.0 (the "bad bunny" release)

it took a little over 5 months, but it happened... the 1.0 release of radeontweaker is here :) a lot of people asked why i used a < 1.0 versioning system... the answer is that i believe the 1.0 release is meant to mark a stable program. rt, up until this point, was not stable. after some positive feedback, i've decided to stop adding new features (i'll save them from the 1.1.x branch) and release this as-is. it does everything i intended it to do when i started coding back in november, and even some extra stuff i wasn't planning on. it is full-featured and stable. i hope you all enjoy it. :)

03.22.01 radeontweaker 0.99.0

yes indeed, i'm still alive. i spent a lot of time fixing bugs and implementing overclocking; the only thing left to do is find a way to detect the current clock speed. i'm releasing this as version 0.99.0 as the last leg before the 1.0 series. rt is now stable and functional. i've a little more cleaning up to do, but for the most part this is what radeontweaker 1.0 will look like. enjoy :)

 * added command line interface, allowing options to be set at
   system startup

   upon startup when they should be '10'

 * added overclocking!!  thanks to vahur and paddy for all their
   hard work! :)  currently rt doesn't detect clock speeds, but
   it will set them.  sync and async modes are supported.

02.26.01 radeontweaker 0.11.0

this release has a ton of bugfixes and includes a few new features to boot. there were some pretty big problems with the 0.10.x series that i finally caught, so this is a strongly recommended upgrade.

 * added "send profile" button to make it easier for users to send
   me profiles they've written
 * added beos section to the drivers page
 * fixed mismatched d3d fsaa keys

 * added radeon's profile from rage3d.com
 * fixed 'remove profile' button

02.21.01 radeontweaker 0.10.3

02.14.01 radeontweaker 0.10.0 and new webpage

i've been adding a lot of html documentation to rt, and figured the webpage might as well use the same color scheme, so here it is; the same info with a new face. i added a link to the download page from the index bar, along with a screenshot page. i've got one shot up now, but i'll add more whenever i change the look of one of rt's sections. also, there's a new version out, 0.10.0. here's the changelog since 0.8.4:
