    What does this setting mean? Weren't all mipmap auto stuff disabled in 6.xx?<br>
    Even in pre 6.xx what does it do?<br>
    <br>
    Other question is about texture quality in open gl. I installed the nvmax, and after playing w. it for 10 mins i deleted it. It just doesn't come any close to RivaTuner.<IMG SRC="smileys/smile.gif"> But that setting intrigued me:<br>
    "TextureQuality" with values from 0-5, low-high. Wasn'it this setting in 2.xx?<br>
    <br>
    Great work with Riva Tuner. Keep it up!

    If u'll unckeck this option u'll prevent Direct3D driver from using user (i.e. created by application) mipmap levels. It does not mean, that Direct3D driver will loose capability of creation DDSCAPS_MIPMAP surfaces. Application will still able to create it, but driver will not use mipmap levels during texture filtering.<br>

    U're correct, automatic mipmaps were disabled in 6.xx<br>
    <br>
    &gt; "TextureQuality" with values from 0-5, low-high. Wasn'it this setting in 2.xx?<br>
    <br>
    Yes, it was. This is obsolete option and it's just ignored by driver. It does not affect anything.
