    Beta installer - Disclaimer
    This installer is in beta, so there might be bugs. I don't take any responsibility for what might happen to you or your computer by using it. You may wonder why I don't wait to release until it's stable. The answer is simple; I need your help to be able to make it stable. Since I'm no super mega corporation like NVIDIA I don't have the range of hardware to test on. So if you want to help me beta test, you're welcome to play the part for Guinea Pig!

    Best regards,

    Menion

    "Full driver clean-up (even superior to Driver Cleaner Pro)"

    that's a pretty bold statement

    Maybe, but it does the same as Driver Cleaner Pro plus more registry and old file checking (of course, only for NVIDIA). To be honest, Driver Cleaner Pro doesn't do that much... It's weird they haven't implemented this kind of cleaning method in the official driver packages...

    Planned features:

    * Choose from three tweak profiles: Quality, performance and benchmarking

    What did you enabled by default now? Quality? And maybe its an idea to add Quality+performance too, a bit nicer quality and a bit better performance too :)

    But, anyone tried them out?

    And questions:
    - Is it English only? (I hope so, because I really HATE the Dutch nVidia translation)
    - What did you stripped out to make it only 9MB?

    Sounds nice, I'll try to check them out when I get time. Some nice features mentioned and planned, and if they all work as described these should become a popular driver set.

    Good look with the project, it sounds promising. :)

    Quality is by default, yes... But there are alot of performance and compatibility tweaks as well that doesn't affect quality.

    Yes it's english only. I've stripped most of the crap from the original package. And since I'm using a very good compression (solid LZMA) + my own installer built upon NSIS instead of the bloaty InstallShield installer, it reduced the size considerably...

    These are my scores so far... And this is with quality settings ;)

    3DMark2005 GFX score: 4956
    3DMark2005 CPU score: 5067
    Aquamark score: 72305

    Haven't tried with 3DMark2006 yet, I know it's not that interesting since I don't have anything to compare with... But if I remember correctly I got around 4600 in 3DMark2005 with 84.25.

    Also, BF2, COD2, Oblivion, Tomb Raider - Legend all run better with this driver.

    I can catch a hint ;) If there's enough interest then I'd be happy to give you a hosting platform for your drivers.

    Let's see some feedback.

    I can download them it seems, I will try to up them for you on SendSpace.

    //EDIT:
    I managed to download it, and uploaded it to SendSpace, here is the link for you:

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/xce8df

    Menion, can you add this link to your startpost? This one has no waiting times and has much faster servers, please use this one the next time instead of Rapidshare ;)

    And I was just thinking about "Choose to install CoolBits 1/2/3"

    Are u using the "official" Coolbits numbers? ;)

    The 3DMark05 score compared the the 84.25, as is written, so I think the games should also be 84.25 ;)

    "Add the new control panel (codenamed Sedona)"
    Will there be a version with the old CP too? Because I just dont like the new CP :)

    D'oh
    My bad



    Personally I like the "wrapper". If I need to modify the nv4_disp.inf for any reason I can more easily do so.

    No problem, looking forward to your results ;)

    This can really be a great set of drivers I think :) But I really hope the drivers are being released a bit fast after the release of drivers.

    He said the cleaner in the package might be better then DCPro, so you can always test this out ;)
