Talking GeForce 4 Driver question


XP Pro SP 1

Asus A7V 333* mobo
Athlon 1900+ cpu (233 fsb)*
512M PC2100 (Crucial)
80G Maxtor Plus 9 HD (7200 rpm)
ti 4200 Geforce4 (64M)
Audigy 2 sound card

DirectX version 90.0b
NVidia driver v 45.23

DSL connection: 635 Up/ 135 Down actual speed.

I upgraded the DirectX and the Vid card driver after setting up a restore point.

I was getting a bunch of graphical glitches in PS and updated drivers and DirectX. Well, the problem got worse and is occuring in BattleField 1942 also, so I can't blame it on PS, (althouth I did anyway... )

My questions: I'd like to find out if anyone is running the Detonator drivers, and if so which version.
Also, is anyone running the latest version of DirectX, namely 9.0b


Thanks for any help in advance.

I dl'd the Omega (third party) drivers last night for my 4600. I'm going to give them a whirl tonight and I'll get back to you.

I have GeForce 3 and I am using the Detenator 45.23 driver and DX 9.0b without any problems, and the GF3 is a DX 8 card.

I got the driver from Gurus of 3D

I also use RivaTuner to adjust to nVidia settings (as I find the defaults and the limits imposed by the nVidia apps to be inadequate).

You can also use Powerstrip to adjust the PCI latency on your card (which helps).

What are you expierencing, tears, sprites, flickers? Are you overclocking?

I'm not quite sure what the official name of these things are and I can't post attachments. I can't have an image hosted easily either.

They are thick lines eminating from walls, rocks, trees, the end of my weapon. Also wall-like structures appear and disappear,depending on my orientation.

And no, I'm not oc'd.



PS> I thought the Detonator drivers were made by someone else that NVidia... I could be wrong on that though.

So far the latest Omega driver set works good for me. Virtually no glitching, rasterizing or polarization during game.

Lucky stiff. I was wondering if I could prevail upon you to describe what each of those problems look like so I can semi-knowledgably describe the problem?

The problems are also occuring in Battlefield 1942 now.... arrrghhhh...

on the Omega drivers. 10-20 FPS increase depending on combat situation. No tearing or hickups experienced.

Couldn't get the Omega drivers to work for some reason. It couldn't find the appropriate .inf file for my Geforce 4 TI 4400.

Did you set the drivers for performance or quality Gerbil?

Sry, lost this thread. Here is the link for the drivers:

http://www.omegacorner.com/index_nvidia.html


Yeah Gohan, I installed with the "Performance" option. The card ran hella sweet, I was averaging 10 FPS greater.

These drivers plus changing fullre_max_buffer=128 in the machine.ini file got me between 20-30 FPS increase. Makes one hell of a difference.


*Edit: Oh, I'm running an OC'd Geforce 4 Ti 4600.

Never mind. I figured out how to install it by not following the directions.

Seems to improve FPS quite a bit. Will have to give it more testing under zerglike conditions.
