    Wrong, CryEngine 2 does not use soft shadows at all, but uses a blurring method that can be tweaked in the config files.

    I have absolutely no problem in either Crysis or Crysis Warhead with Very High/Enthusiast shadows, so that Nvidia drivers cant render it is utter rubbish.

    DV does not work with these drivers. I am using xp 32bit. Had to go back to 177.92. They seem to work the best so for. Is anyone else having this problem with DV?

    After using these for a few hours in COD4 and Crysis Warhead I see no improvements over 177.92.

    Thx for the advise pescador !

    Finally it appears that with minimum shadows settings (without) the bug is gone. Three others settings are just like my pic...

    Hope it will be fixed soon cause when i play no shadows the ambiant light is radically different (farcry like) and i don't like it, it changes level style...

    This fixed my Crysis Warhead problem with Vista x64. I had a black screen when I tried to play in fullscreen. Sweet.

    Awesome!

    Great drivers, well.. at least for me. It gave a HUGE performance boost compared to the 177.98 drivers. Especially in Test Drive Unlimited (Or just made SLI possible, i dont know).

    There is not this annoying bug anymore which made a mess up with the SLI or dualscreen mode or something.. everytime i turned from SLI to dualscreen or the other way round, it didnt change from SLI to dualscreen but just put my Digital Vibrance on 100%
    Now that luckily is fixed.

    Many single GPU games run a lot smoother now. I havent tested crysis yet but im going to do that soon.

    Use Riva Tuner to set your Digital Vibrance in XP SP3.

    I've installed this new driver on my XP SP3 x86 partition and they are definitely faster than the 177.83's (WHQL) which I had before. Not by much of course, but it does give me a nice +2/+3 FPS boots in my Source-based games and it gave me a nice +6 FPS boots in Crysis: Warhead which I will certainly not complain about (the resolution concerned by that boots is 1024x768).
