It works in GRAW 2, etc. but it's not showing in the configuration setting?

Any ideas? :) Getting about 13-20fps at 1280x1024 with an 8800gt/q6600, etc.

It appeared to be when I ran it. I think all the demos are kind of crappy though. Not impressed, so far, by this whole PhysX thing.

Uinstall them then. That's a free $200 upgrade. Those who bought the Physx card back in '06 are pretty much screwed over.

Yeah sure the demos may not be impressive to you, they're just there show off the physx stuff. Those are just tech demos.

First I've heard so far, people bitching when free stuff is handed out to them on a silver plate.

Games are coming out with Physx so just wait for em.

You must have a GTX260 or GTX280 to do PhysX in the Great Kulu demo. Lame if you ask me. :thumbdwn:

Oh I plan too. No need for 'em after one run anyways. Considering I paid $350 for my card, I don't think of it as a free upgrade, but I see your point. PhysX at this stage is worthless, but has great potential in the future.

it works here on Vista64bit.

OH, i see the possible problem, you are still using the old Physx software. Did you also installed new Geforce driver?

yes

yes

I tried to uninstall the old drivers, but I couldn't see how. In the end, I uninstalled 'NVIDIA PhysX 8.08.01 and my video drivers, and reinstalled the 177.83s. But when I look in the PhysX control panel applet, I still see PhysX Engines from 2.3.1 up to 2.8.1. Is that normal?

If not, how can I uninstall the old Engines? I'm hoping that uninstalling the old engines will force games to use the new engine and enable physics acceleration... or am I hoping too much?

Could you qualify what you mean by 'working just fine'? I have the Fluid demo working, and it also works in GRAW2, but I'd like it to work in older games such as Crazy Machines 2. Also, the UT3 PhysX levels slow to about 5fps about a minute or two. So for me, some things are working, but definitely not everything.

Is it normal to have all the engine versions listed in the PhysX control panel, or should I just be seeing 2.8.1?

i meant that all the demos in the PhysX pack released by nividia worked fine for me. I can see Geforce PhysX in the configuration of the Great Kulu demo
i don't have UT3 to test so sorry can't help here.
and yes i have all the old physX engines listed too from v2.3.1 to v 2.8.1!

Ah, OK. Sounds like the same situation as me then, so nothing to worry about :)
