Did they fix the water bug with these? I'll probably install these later. Can't find any release notes though...

Can someone tell me if the mouse lag is finally gone with these (crysis demo/retail)!!?? I seem to be one of the very few unlucky ones who has this problem with all the 169 drivers so far!! Please give feedback.

Not exactly but I remember playing with the mouse senstivity in the game menu to no avail....

This is seriously stressing me out because I am entitled to see improvements like everyone else.....

Too low fps is probably the cause?

Tim']Too low fps is probably the cause?

I think it doesn't happen on the 163.69s, so it must be something in the drivers. I also get it in Vista only.

So are you still experiencing mouse lag with these drivers??

I can't stand the 163 drivers no more. I have put up with them long enough. Yes they are stable but I want the fps improvement in crysis everyone is saying the 169's give...

Thanks to Guru3D (http://www.guru3d.com/newsitem.php?id=6120)


And the good news on ForceWare 169.09 is .. drumroll ... it supports SLI for Crysis.

Beta driver for GeForce 6, 7, and 8 series GPUs.
Recommended driver for Crysis.
Several game and application compatibility fixes. Please read the release notes for more information on product support, features, driver fixes and known compatibility issues.
This driver:

Adds SLI support for Crysis
Fixes a water reflection bug in Crysis
Adds Control Panel anisotropic filtering support for Crysis
With this driver, SLI will deliver 40-50% speedup over a single GPU for Crysis. In addition, Crytek will release a patch in the next week or two that will improve SLI performance further.
