    finally got these to install, tho the installer was still bugged for me. had to install these by goin into device manager and updating my vid card. these drivers are pretty decent, i did notice it wasnt as smooth in some of the games i play, comparing these to the banned 84.43 drivers ive been using. but its only me, could be different for some one else.

    thanks for the drivers, im lookin forward to another set of these to try out in the future

    Uhm, if you updated manually through device manager you need to run the installer again to add the tweaks :p

    Otherwise you only get the original ones...

    u gotta update the drivers in umm device manager and browse to c:\Program Files\Forcewareultra\drivers\ and then it will install. after that then run the Downloaded file and reboot and ur all set! oh wait...first run the downloaded file then update driver using device manager then after that THEN u can rerun the program.

    I dont go by benching anymore. too unreliable. different score EVERY time. you have to try for yourself. every driver reacts differently on everyones machine. so and so's could really rock but so and jo's(lol) might suck. its how a driver performs in games what counts.

    Okey! Finally it seems to work!

    I've moved off of the InstDrv dll and now use my own function to install the drivers. I also added installer logging, so if anything goes wrong just post the log here... It can be found in the install-dir, named install.log :)

    Download the new fixed version and try :D

    Have you done anything to optimize/improve mipmap stuff when AF is enabled?

    Currently I have clear bands where different levels of filtering kick in on 2xAF in the normal 'quality' mode on official 84.43 drivers, this dissappears under 'high quality' but the performance hit is too much.

    Hmm... That's weird! It doesn't get your GUID... Would you mind contact me on MSN? (marcus@ekwall.nu)

    All values I've found regarding mipmaps have been optimized, yes. I hope it will solve your problem! ;) I will soon release a new version that will have the option to choose between two tweak profiles: Quality or Performance.

    Quality and Performance, will it be sililar to the High Quality and Quality in CP? Or between what and what in CP? :) Because I always use Quality, I dont see difference between HQ and Q in CP ;)

    Uhm... The setting in CP is only one regkey for D3D (D3D_QualityEnhancements) and one for OGL (OGL_QualityEnhancements), and it only affects textures!

    HQ will enable the use of 2048x2048 textures, Q will clamp the texture maximum resolution to 1024x1024.

    The tweaks the installer will do is alot more than just clamping/unclamping texture resolutions :p
