    OK , i test it with F.E.A.R, NFSMW, Doom3 Roe ( Resurrection oof evil) and quality-perfomance is awesome.

    Good Driver but :

    The installer should be improveb
    I can´t select coolbits version
    I think by default is a mix of coolbits 1,2,3,3rd strike.

    I export in a reg file from regedit [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak] in a file like this in pure text like this:

    New Installer is up! Now at version 1.1! Would like to get some feedback!
    Previous fixes for older versions are obsolete with this new version.

    Most important update: Quality and Performance tweak profiles!

    For information about tweak highlights and installer features review the original post!

    Regards,

    Menion

    Bug has been found and a fix is being tested as we speak...

    It seems some people have the device information in the second control set.
    Didn't think about that before, pretty stupid to be honest!

    The current installer only check for GUID in the first control set. And when it can't find it there, it will fail... The new version will check the first one, and if it's not found there it will check the second one.

    That should solve this irritating bug...

    Great job!!! I am an addict of BF2 and this is the best set of driver I have tried for my system. I see IQ and performance increase... For IQ, not sure if it's the placebo effect but for performance, I got an average of 3-4 FPS higher.

    Hey Menion,
    I just downloaded the newest version from your link in the first post but had some of the same problems many have posted. Instead of explaining the problem I'll just post the logfile for you to take a look at. Like other's I'd love to check them out soon. Thanks for checking this out.

    The .inf file it's looking for is just one folder level up from the default folder. Just hit the up arrow key.

    Looks like it was just put in the wrong folder.

    Menion, did you make any other tweaks to this new version? Or is everything just the same, except a new installer?

    - adapter
    - properties
    - update the driver
    - select the ini file manually from the map that was installed
    (C:\Program Files\ForceWareUltra\drivers\nv4_disp.inf), now the driver can be installed.

    Has anyone seem to have playback problems with these drivers? There seem to be some unbearable stuttering during playback using VLC Media Player.
