    Uhm.. seems as the link from nVidia does not work..

    And the link to Guru3D site downloads BETA drivers.. So, is this 197.25 a beta version, or intended to be WHQL release?

    PS. Why make 2 threads with 197.25 released today, if they are in fact not released, and a beta version?

    And why do you care?

    Don't want to use them then don't , they work as good as the 197.13 but with extra fixes!

    Confirmed. MPC-HC EVR sync/custom renderers are still broken with this driver.

    Modded....is there anyway to cut down on the bloat?

    I luv nVidia, however, the size of each package keeps on getting bigger and bigger. I have a fiber connection and won't break a bead of sweat downloading all of em, but is there a way that these can be stripped down to include just the driver for the GPU?

    By that I mean no: PhysX, Cuda, Stereoscopic, etc.

    I don't mind tinkering around with the package to find out. I was just curious to see if there is someone else doing it.

    It seems they listened to my report of max1&2 and 3dm01 failing :D... the release notes mention it fixes launching problem of several dx8 applications...

    I will try these now :D and edit my post to tell if it did fix it...

    edit: yes it's fixed, mentioned apps now run fine! on with some more testing...:banana:

    there are no changes to 13 or 15, just the fixes for the game and dx8. And you see, its just a beta driver.
    Next WHQL should come soon.

    what still no fix for CUSTOM EVR?? Screw this.. whats wrong with them stupid green Team? this is one serious Problem...i cant even watch my videos, and dont tell me , then dont use evr, guys, this bug goes way deeper...even with different players i cant watch cause its given me an bluescreen, nvkdl.whatever...

    if they didnt fix this within the next driver release im out of the freen, and go to ATI...ive waitet looong enough, and besides that Nvidia Products are more expensive and the Driver are not anymore what they where before whhen nvidia had good driver...now they do nothing ...man, im PISSED.

    This driver is good. BC2 same performance like with 197.13s also i have 150 3dvantage marks more, that with the fix of dx8 apps makes this one really nice.

    However FO3-stutter still present....

    I tryed and can't duplicate the EVR CP problems, but i know a few people are having problems with the last few drivers, as well as losing 32bit Colour when you jump between 24/50/60hz, something i get too.

    BetA13, did you report the problems to Nvidia directly, cause i hope you didn't just bitch on a non Nvidia forum and expect them to be fixed by magic, but i have no problems with EVR Sync or CP, mkv's won't play in WMP anymore though, and it still has the HDTV refresh rate/16bit colour bug.

    I reported issue for 197.13 drivers on nvidia forums (and few people wrote, they have it as well), ill repost once "offical" topic for 197.25 will be created, however i encourage everyone with this issue to do the same! This is not something that they have time to fix sometimes in next year :s
