    Thanks for reply. I know 3dcenter forum - its nice one btw.
    But this tweak is unstable, and too much flickering, atleast to me.
    Risen 2 was DirectX 9.0 title, ELEX using DX11.
    Im not sure if there is a way to force game on DX9.

    No. 99.99999 percent of the time DDU is even mentioned, its not necessary.

    No. Only use DDU if you have issues when using standard un/installer.

    Is this the same green and red flashing issue I have that appears on some games and also when playing videos when there is fast motion?

    If so, I found a fix - rolled back about 4 drivers as I had issues on video playback looking like its analgyph 3D at times with red/green lines on certain edges.

    Because they changed it for some reason. You need to go into settings and enable it back. It's last setting at the bottom. Restart DDU and it will prompt you to boot into Safe Mode just like it used to do.

    This isn't Nvidia fault, it's Massive Entertainment fault - they simply screw up DX 12 implementation: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1701777-Performance-DX12-Related-Issues
    Random crashes using DX 12 is also a known bug - just play using DX 11...
    Maybe 1.8 patch will somehow help and resove this issue but I honestly doubt it...

    Yeah possibly true but still, I've been using DX11 since driver 387.92 which first introduced the green flickering artifacts. Any driver prior to that one worked flawlessly under DX12.

    These are the first v387.xx drivers (yeah, it's v388.00 but it's still part of the same branch) that I've been able to install first time not counting the two that installed automatically and apparently without issue via Windows Update (i.e. v387.68 and v387.78). They would fail due to NVContainer as force closing that then allowed the driver to install properly a second time. I had three of these processes running when I installed this new driver but it succeeded first time. Good stuff as I was starting to worry...

    One oddity is that Origin seems to close and restart after this driver is installed for some reason whereas both Steam, Battle.net and UPlay continue to run just fine in the system tray. Anyone know why this happens? I've only noticed it happening with these newer WDDM 2.3 drivers on Windows 10 v1709.

    so..no changes about this game, single is still preferred with better performance, right?
