    Does Remember Me and Deadlight, both Unreal Engine 3 games, still crash with these drivers like with the previous two 326.xx drivers please as that is the reason I reverted to the older 320.49 drivers which have been fine (Deadlight works perfectly). However, if these drivers have the UE3 fix then I will certainly install these.

    I'd be grateful if anyone with either of those games and a Kepler GPU would test them. Thanks in advance.

    *EDIT*
    Ah, forget it, I just spotted SSJBillClinton post... thanks for that, pal. Also, thanks to White Lightning for posting the links. Looks like I will be installing these later then. :D

    *EDIT 2*
    Does anyone have a link for the International (English UK) 64-bit Windows 8 driver please?

    Found it!

    Nazi Zombie Army (and I assume Sniper Elite V2) still freezing randomly. :(

    Edit:
    Sniper Elite V2 only froze up on me after about 2 hours of play in MP, NZA is a lot more prone to freezing (5mins - 40 mins), I assume because of there's a lot more stuff going on.
    OC or not it's the same for me as the last 2 drivers, don't be too quick to celebrate!

    Remember Me works for me, I don't have Deadlight yet but you may want to give it a try. BF3 black edges fix also seems fine. Best 320 driver so far :)

    So one person says they're fixed and you say they aren't? I guess it's up to me to swing the vote then? :p

    Personally, I haven't any problems with either game (or Aliens vs. Predator [2010], which is from the same developer and using the same engine) since the v320.18 drivers (I believe, which contained the fix for the Advanced Shadows freezing bug). That said, I admit that I haven't really played any of those games for more than an hour in several weeks, although I did play through AvP for over three hours with the 320.18 drivers, again with Advanced Shadows enabled and it worked perfectly.

    So unless NVIDIA have broken the games again going from the r319 to the r325 branch then I'm hoping those are still OK for me. NVIDIA did break several Unreal Engine 3 games (apparently fixed in this driver) so it is certainly plausible!!! ;)

    @ SSJBillClinton - Do you have Advanced Shadows enabled in Sniper Elite V2? If so then try disabling them and see if that stabilises the game for you.

    It does irritate me that NVIDIA produce a PDF release notes file, like they have for these new 326.41 drivers but omit many of the fixes mentioned in that list!!! Surely, they should list all of those otherwise it looks as if they're either not aware of the issues or that they haven't fixed them. Seriously how difficult is it to list as many of the fixes as possible so people know they've been fixed? :bang:
