No mention in the release notes as to whether or not GRID is working correctly, nor the HL2 issues. I'll load 'em up when I get home if no one else has responded about them by then.

I'm downloading them now and plan to install them... I'll post about Half-Life 2 if no one else does before me.

Strange they are considered to be made for Ridd-ick, as that game is NOT demanding. I get like 60+fps with everything maxed. It would be nice for transpency AA to work though, as all the metal in the game is shimmery as hell.

Half-Life 2 is fixed.

nHancer is not.

Half-Life 2 is fixed.

nHancer is not.

only nHancer author can fix that, because issue is a bit more serious.

you can edit the nvapps file yourself and remove few entries pointing out to "launchers" and nHancer will recognize the inf file correctly.

But changing settings in nHancer with these 185.6x drivers cause certain games to stop functioning.

Can anyone with SLI and Fallout 3 test these drivers? With the 182.xx set the HDR goes bonkers. It will disappear and flash without any sort of smooth transition. The only way to fix it with the 182.xx drivers is to turn SLI off.

Never seen so many driver releases with so many problems in so little time :p

Btw should work the same as the past 185 drivers to add support to more cards

Look for your card under the manufacturer header. You may have to go into the device manager to find your hardware id for my 8800 GTS 640 it was

%NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1% = nv_G8x, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0193

Change it to "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS" = Section003, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0193

The headline for that error is nHancer... it's an nHancer error (and no, I wasn't running it at the time either).

I've never even had enhancer installed on this machine.

So everything works good even with the error? I didn't even bother to test and I too have never installed nhancer. I'll give them another shot then, thanks much.

I found something out today tho that has made my life a lot easier with nv drivers and that is that I still get sound through dvi to hdmi adapters so no need to use the dreaded hdmi port. Very awesome as I didn't think that was even possible

So far so good. I only updated to these drivers due to an error I was having in Rid****, and these drivers appear to have fixed the issue.

Well I got the exact same error and it said "nHancer" in the program bar... so... I dunno.

The 185s let you use hdmi for a second display? That's interesting as I thought hdmi was tied to the second card. Does this mean the secondary card in SLI can be used for display (DVI)?

Yeah with the 185s I can use hdmi out for a second display and keep multi-gpu enabled. My setup was dvi to hdmi for my pc lcd and hdmi for the tv but I have gone to dual dvi-hdmi adapters just in case they decide to mess with it again.

These drivers work well tho despite the install error, thanks much guys


Edit- Found another bug with this set. My primary display is not available in the CP so I cannot change the rez or color settings but it does seem to work fine and it seems to pick the correct rez for it. I think nv has gotten a little too excited from the performance gains and has released these 185 a little raw. I understand that these are beta and things like this are expected but these are a little more beta than their previous betas..

Same old same old with these drivers and resize hdtv desktop in SLI mode.

Will not resize to 1920x1080 (1080p). It puts the resolution some retarded 1808x1012!!!

I figured after 3 flippin tries they could get this right ffs. Anyone know a workaround I'm tired of reverting back to 182.50's for the 4rth freegin time?
