It's true. 8800GTS is a perfect Quadro now (3DSMAX9 ONLY!!!)

    SQ antiprotection ? I don't hear about.
    - "ForceWareAntiprotection" = "nv4_mini.sys antiprotection.rts".

    ELSA Quadro FX1100 works slow with "Bit 6=1" in "OGL_App_SupportBits" (except AA-lines parts ("Unigraphics" for example) of OpenGL performance tests).
    It's normal, because "Bit 6" is a part of "ParaSolid engine" optimization in NV driver Quadro path. (High precision calculation? Disabling high-speed for OGL tests? May be...)

    i don't need the extra performance in opengl :smoke: , i just need to run maya without limitations (such as visual artefacts when using paint effects). please continue your work and post results.

    just installed nvidia driver 158.16 (link found in guru3d forums).
    i have imported my previous saved nHancer profile and gues what ? i can now enable overlay. i can now use paint effects in maya without those annoying visual artefacts :banana:

    great work so far guys... i too wondered about the older scripts and i am glad they are coming back. I would love to help out with this progress as soon as finals are up.. i don't have a 8800 but a 7800 but if it works for one it should work for the other.

    keep reporting progress and again good work.

    tested ok with 165.01.
    but for some reason i have to disable anti-aliasing to have overlay working. no performance gain with this, no other "quadro settings" enabled. maya profile imported using nHancer and a nvwsapps.xml file from an old quadro driver .

    It's a known hardware limitation. You can't have FSAA when overlays are enabled but on a real Quadro FSAA is rarely used since you can enable antialiased wireframes instead. ;)

    the mod works, but i see no improvements in opengl apps, we need opengl protections removed .
    who can do that ?

    well as i stated- only 3dsmax and future autocad 2008 (powerdraft D3D) users will take benefit from that mod. And that's what is enough for me. :)

    For all the others - protections in OGL is something, that only Unwinder himself can bypass. Maybe he will do that, maybe not- but as he stated in the past, it's just not fun to bypass protections again and again for every new driver. So don't be too optimistic about OGL.

    anyway the Quadro mod doesn't give that much performance diff., not worth it, and the 3ds max 9 extension for Vista DX10, is pretty much slow, 3 times slower than XP DX9, pretty much, i'm back to XP again.

    i don't know what you expected- but you get more than +35% in wireframe mode with maxtreme (as you can see in my benches) with the mod. I can clearly see the improvement in my project files also. This IS a huge difference for me...Of course you don't get the 10x frame-difference like in OGL- but this is due to the alredy strongly optimized stock D3D.

    quadro drivers aren't released as many as for geforce, maybe those can have protections removed

    Sorry,
    the mod is not compatible with Vista64 until someone tells us which are the coresponding files for nv4_mini.sys and nv4_disp.dll in Vista64. Besides, it doesn't make any sense- Vista D3D in 3dsmax is so incredibly slow- i wonder why anyone should bother running his stuff in drastic slow-motion. I tried Vista with maxtreme and it's MUCH slower than XP without maxtreme.

    btw, with the new RT 2.01 you get true stability in the mod now, due to corrected DeviceID-setting. ;)

    However, for those who run OGL Appz:the OGL protections are still present, even if your DeviceID is 19E(Quadro FX4600) or 19D(Quadro FX5600). Seems the driver can detect the mod...
