Hi! I have a radeon 9800 and i'm having problems with games in which the openGl console is loading before you enter the game(for instance, Jedi outcast). The problem are the white pixels that appear all over the screen along the corners and characters. Please help! Thank you.

I think I've seen something similar on a R9600, but it was about watching videos on an overlay. (random black pixels start showing pixels from background). Games don't use overlays, so I don't know a workaround.
By console you mean the DOS-like prompt? Strange that a game shows one. Maybe create a shortcut to the game's .exe file, and make it start minimized? There's a way to hide an app's console, but a separate program should be created:

(make a friend/some programmer compile this for you)


SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES sat = {sizeof(SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES),0,true};
HANDLE hRead,hWrite;
if(!CreatePipe(&hRead,&hWrite,&sat,0)){
print("no pipe");
return 0;
}
STARTUPINFO info;
info.cb=sizeof(info);
GetStartupInfo(&info);
info.hStdOutput=hWrite;
info.hStdError=hWrite;
info.dwFlags=STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW | STARTF_USESTDHANDLES;
info.wShowWindow=SW_HIDE;
PROCESS_INFORMATION pinfo;
if(!CreateProcess(0,"d:\\myGames\\Jedi\\jediOutcast.exe",0,0,1,NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS,0,0,&info,&pinfo)){
//prints("Error executing process:");
//prints(cmdline);
return 0;
}
CloseHandle(hWrite);
