I guess I can't fully celebrate just yet. There are a few people on other forums reporting that it did not work for them, but then...there are a few that say it does.
None of the ATI extraction methods worked for me. :\
The fix did dumb down my graphics a little, but is still playable. This DLL is only 1.4MB versus ATI's 15MB+/- version, which could be why. Some people are reporting garbled graphics and/or garbled or no audio. A Windows 7 32bit user said it didn't work.
Please post your results if it doesn't work for you and you find a solution. Good luck!
It did reset all my graphics to the lowest setting at first launch, but I changed my video settings back accordingly and it works great now.
