Does anyone know where the Visual Indicator for NVIDIA PhysX is located in the registry?
The story so far...
A week or two ago, I noticed that Dragon Age: Origins was suddenly displaying "PHYSX>CPU" in the upper left. I bought Divinity 2: Dragon Knight Saga a few days ago and it's doing the same thing. I downloaded a couple of PhysX demos that let you pick whether it uses CPU or GPU and the message showed up in those, too, with the message switching between CPU and GPU.
The NVIDIA control panel says under 3D settings that the visual indicator option is not turned on. If I turn it on, close the control panel, then open the panel again it says again says it is not turned on. So my guess is that the control panel isn't handling the setting correctly.
I tried upgrading the PhysX drivers with the latest version but there was no change.
So what I would like to do is just try to skip the control panel and toggle the setting myself. Unfortunately, I can't find the blasted thing! I searched on Nvidia and PhysX in the registry but couldn't find anything.
That did it! Click the profile settings and there was the PhysX setting, plain as day. Swapped it from On to Off and all is well! (From the looks of the value, I'm guessing the setting is part of some big binary value and doesn't have it's own registry key.)
