They broke nhancer for me.

"error reading XML file 'c:\windows\system32\nvapps.xml':
There is an error in XML document (967, 49)."

open the nvapps.xml and check what is on line 967, probably something new that nhancer doesn't understant.

if it is not important delete the line, save file and if that was only one bad entry you are good to go

I don't know what they did, but this set is 20% faster here :eek: ( don't hope they sacrified IQ, because this quite big!).

I cann't find 967, 49?

These are pretty fast. Love these drivers. :D And I see they kept the Gamma slider as well.

don't look for 967, 49, look for line 967, use a program that allows to count/show lines in files.

Oh oops :rolleyes:

A nice and clear one with Dead Space or another newer game would be cool.

Edit, won't load anyway. I want my SSAA back ggrgrgr.

And, as Murphy's law discribes, the nHancer forum is down.

i can't install the driver for next 90+ minutes, need to wait for Acronis Clone drive to finish.

Well that makes me feel quite a bit better about my purchase of a gtx 285 vs. waiting for the HD 4890!

Working great on Windows 7 x64 - 7000 build. Crysis DX9 custom config seems to run a little smoother, haven't tried any other games. Don't have any games installed atm that support AO to test. =/

I have no idea what's gooing on when uploading the xml file, the upload dialoge only sees an old nvapps file, different from one I see directly on my HD :confused:...?


BTW, it's the new Rid**** game: (line 967, Col 49):



<PROFILE Label="The Chronicles of Rid****"> <-- line 967
<APPLICATION Label="sbzengine.exe" Launcher="Rid****.exe"/>
<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="0x00000001" Default="0x00000001" Itemtype="predefined"/>
<PROPERTY Label="get_error" Value="0x00000008" Default="0x00000008" Itemtype="predefined"/>
<PROPERTY Label="multichip_ogl_options" Value="0x0000FFFF" Default="0x0000FFFF" Itemtype="predefined"/>

All the d i c ks are covered :D

The Nvapps.xml is in Programmdata/Nvidia or not?

Skinner

You have to be in safemode for editing the nvapps xml file I suppose?

And to upload it hahaha. I have made a copy and then it can be uploaded (the uploader propably blocking files in use to be uploaded)

Overlooked Bioshock on the list, guess I do have a game installed to test! Overall, its around a 15%ish performance hit. Maybe a little more in some places.

Here is a scene where the performance difference is null, but it does a lot to improve the depth!

On - 65fps

Off - 69fps

Too bad nhancer isn't working yet, but these do give a nice boost.
