Go the driver rollback way, seriously.
You cannot "override" values in conf.ini and with DirectX you cannot get "perfect" mode at all.
Without perfect mode, the game imposes additional limits e.g. on the complexity of 3D models, leaving you with certain planes e.g. in BAT not even being visible at all.
Say "thank you" to AMD and just rollback the driver.
Since IL-2 1946 is more than likely the only OpenGL you're using anyway, there's not much to be afraid of when rolling back the driver.

confirmed does work..so i play other games like cod and bf too...not a streamer or youtuber but will downgrading like DRAMATICALLY decrease my performance or is it safe to upgrade/downgrade between games?

The answer comes from Radio Yerevan: "In principle, yes."

First you need to understand why drivers get updated at all.
For hardware families like graphics cards, the reasons for releasing a new driver can be grouped in three categories:
  • Identification of a general bug / security issue / performance issue
  • New Hardware being released
  • New Game being supported

First point only happens once in a blue moon, e.g. in case of AMD the summer release was such a case, when AMD figured they made a couple of stupid mistakes in their OpenGL part of the driver.
Fun fact is that they broke at least as much as they fixed, resulting in old OpenGL games like IL-2 not working with the new drivers at all.
If there should ever be a serious security issue justifying an update in this category, you're essentially doomed, because you'd have the choice between an insecure and working, or secure and non-working system.
Again, say thanks to AMD...

Second point is self-explaining.

Third point happens when a brandnew game gets released which supports latest technology and - most likely - shall boost sales of latest hardware.
If you happen to be a gamer who always needs to play the latest shit, prepare for constant up- and downgrading of drivers.

Whether or not up- and downgrading graphics drivers is feasible depends a lot on the quality of said drivers.
AMD driver quality is probably the second worst in the world, beaten by chinese fake chip support only.
