    DNA beta 163.14 solved all my problems in bf2142 and bf2 (yellow textures, slowdowns etc.) and also low FPS problem in FSX. I tried DNA 163.16 but much slower in bf2142 so I'm back to beta .14 and i have no intention to change it for long time probably. It's perfect for games I play.

    No changes in IQ relative to 94.24. (some game areas tend to be more crisp but it could be just my imagination.)

    The screenshots in the left column in each pic are rendered using the 94.24. The right ones are the ones the DNA churned out.

    Some changes in FPS though:

    94.24
    Nexuiz
    8 58 80
    Tribes: Vengeance
    20 28 40

    163.44
    Nexuiz
    1 50 60
    Tribes:Vengeance
    20 28 40

    DNA 3.7.16316
    Nexuiz
    29 52 59
    Tribes: Vengeance
    23 31 41

    (I installed the DNA drivers with the "Quality" box checked.)

    I do not know why the max FPS suffered but the minimum marks improved a LOT so I am sticking with these for the meantime. 163.44 does not work for me.

    I have yet to test the NGO and the 162.50s though.

    (Tests were made using Nexuiz's ingame timedemo. I used FRAPS with a T:V demo. Sorry I have no current games. Dirt poor lol!)

    I hope this helps.

    With the good feedback by pilistorac, i wanted to try the DNA Beta 163.14's before trying the 163.16's but are no longer available on DNA's site :cry:

    It deletes itself when i uninstall. I tried to reinstall the version of DNA i had, installed but i still get that same error.

    Bugging the hell out of me, i like DNA drivers but i aint formating just to get them working again!

    I have the shell installer set so that if it detects an older version of the file, it will not allow for an install. Double check the program files directory for a DNA file. If it isn't there (as you say) open regedit and go to HKLM\Software and see if there is a DNA key there. If so, delete it. Try to install. I'll change this in future releases, as I added it more to ensure the driver was properly uninstalled from system32. The program files folder won't effect stability.

    This is for me, the most helpful article ever, hands down:

    PCWorld.com's Clean Up What a Messy Uninstall Leaves Behind

    Needless to say, do the necessary backups first before delving into this. (No offense to gurus; added the note in case a greenhorn stumbles into this link.)

    I hope this helps.

    Yeah same with me. Cured my flashing textures problem in BF2. I have my drivers set to "Quality".

    Why Quality? When is a system eligible for the High Quality option? Will a High Quality setting bog my system down?

    It's my first time using this driver. I tried both Quality and Performance settings. No difference in IQ. Except for one game. With Performance settings, Rakion looks like muddy sh#t lol! (I have not launched the game in Quality.)

    I read here that the High Quality option was for SLI boards. Anyway I've tried both Quality and High Quality settings and, for my system at least, I got better performance using the quality setting.

    Gaaah! How could I forget that?! Thanks for pointing that out. :book:

    Quality it is then.

    Www.DNA-Drivers.com? Where is the site? Everytime I go there I get redirected. I'm making a blog for my newbie friends and I have this article about tweaked drivers. I would like to advertise the site there.

    The link works. Sometimes the server has issues and you can't load the page. Try again.
