    Hi guys,

    Can anyone point me what the option OpenGL Override do exactly. The functions in this tool are very obscure, basically the majority of them you can't find anything in the web.

    Do NVCP > 3D Settings and nvidiaInspector share settings? I noticed last night that some settings in Inspector do not carry over to NVCP. On the contrary, those same settings, when set in NVCP, carry over to Inspector. Most settings do share though.

    What does not carry over, exactly?

    I've never really looked at that personally. As settings in NVCP are useless to me.

    Hi everyone, I have a strange issue with NI/NPI and need a little help, please.

    I was creating a new profile for a game that wasn't on the default list, I clicked add application, located the game's .exe, clicked it and received a fairly long error message, but before I could even read it, NI stopped responding and closed. So I tried reopening it and that's my issue, it will not open anymore. I've restarted the PC, deleted all NI/NPI files, downloaded the latest ones, but still nothing. I can open NI and click the button to open profiles, my cursor spins for a second like it's loading, but nothing appears.

    Anyone have any ideas, please?

    Add the game in the nvidia control panel instead. Then you can select it in inspector.

    Sorry if I'm missing something, feel free to ELI5, but inspector opens showing me my GPU details, but the profile section of NI won't open at all. So I'm confused what you mean by this.

    [Update] - OK, I've sorted it. Jeez, only took me 6 hours.

    Reinstalling the same driver and even updating to the latest didn't work, so I tried running Display Driver Uninstaller to completely wipe all existence of the Nvidia drivers, then installed the latest (390.65) and restarted the system... finally, Nvidia Inspector and Profile Inspector are working again. Phew. I was starting to get worried.

    "Enable GTX950 specific features. Currently used to enable FRM for GTX950"
    FRM = Frame Rate Monitor

    I recently reset my window 10 installation. Now after reinstalling Nvidia profile inspector, I can't change any profiles, or add my saved profiles.
    I keep getting ''DRS_SaveSettings failed: NVAPU_ACCESS_DENIED.'' message.

    PleaseHelp !

    Run NV inspector as admin.
    Also make sure you are using the latest version.

    Probably a banking trojan.

    I'm kidding of course, but I actually have trouble trusting it. I mean, an application that doesn't have a home page, and no software site seems to want to mirror it, not even Guru3D, with an executable that requires administrator privileges, without digital signature and no checksum to verify the file.

    It's open source. Feel free to check its code yourself.

    Yes, if I could read the source well enough to be able to distinguish between good and malicious code, and then compile it myself to make sure the code corresponds with the available executable... then I would be sure that the thing is safe, until the next update. Good idea. Have you done it?

    I'm not saying I don't trust Orbmu2k, but judging by past events, it would be easy for a hacker group to replace the file at any time with malware that behaves like the normal program while stealing data, and then later at some point becomes ransomware after enough people downloaded it.

    Does anybody know how to force a P-state for a single executable via NI/NPI? I've recently downloaded Fallout Tactics from GOG to play "faux-op" with a friend via Parsec, but the game always uses my absolute max clocks no matter what I set. This game is almost 20 years old and is basically 2D tiles, so why it is running at 2050/5500 and 80%+ GPU usage is beyond me, but it is annoying with my fans having to run at 55% the entire time.

    I've tried all the settings in NVCP that could make a difference and absolutely nothing changed, even after restarts. Then I moved to NPI and started looking around for power or clock related settings to try. I've tried every single one I can find and nothing has helped. I know it is P-state 8 I'm trying to force, but I can't find a way to do it.

    If anybody is really adventurous, they could just download the game from GOG and see if their GPU clocks to max. Also, using the power slider in MSIAB doesn't help since it sits at ~20% power usage while in game even with max clocks and very high GPU usage.

    Try to add this setting - Frame Rate Monitor Control - 0x3C000000 PS_FRAMERATE_MONITOR_CTRL_FPS_60

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! It didn't work at first with the profile associated with the bos.exe, so I deleted the existing profile and made my own in NPI. Once I turned on the setting you recommended above my GPU no longer clocks up to max. It sits at a comfortable 848MHz core/810(1620)MHz mem clock @ 0.625v. It hasn't gone above 45C in 2 hours of gaming with my buddy so the fans never kick on. I've used NPI quite a bit over the years but never this particular setting.

    I'm glad if it just works and we leave it at that, but do you care to explain *why* it works when RTSS limits and NPI framerate limits had no effect?
