Hi guys. I wonder if I can get some help when tweaking an old drivers for maximum performance and custom tweaks :) I already managed some tweaks that I describe bellow, yet still there is a pretty good deal of things that I simply don't know what to do with them, so a little help is need :)

The drivers in question are oldie 45.28 Detonators ( http://rapidshare.com/files/272573463/Detonators_45.28.zip ) because they are VERY fast on the oldie computer (FX5600XT) and hence preffered.

What I did accomplish

nv4_disp.inf:

%NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_0314.1% = nv4_NV3x, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0314
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_0314.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600XT"

(added these to make the drivers support FX 5600 XT card, otherwise no go)


nv4_disp.inf :

[nv4.Services]
AddService = nv, 0x00000002, nv4_Generic_Service_Inst, nv4_EventLog_Inst
;AddService = NVSvc, 0x00000000, nv_NVSVC_Inst

(that disable the nVidia help service adding, it slow things down, lots of unnecessary HDD actions too...)


nv4_disp.inf :

HKR,, "DefaultSettings.XResolution",%REG_DWORD%,1280
HKR,, "DefaultSettings.YResolution",%REG_DWORD%,1024

(that give default resolution 1280x1024)


setup.iss:

[File Transfer]
OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll
to:
OverwrittenReadOnly=YesToAll

(no questions on reinstall, I hope :D)


What I wonder about
nv4_EventLog - kill? It is not unnecessary?

Could cleaning out this stop creating other resolutions that are in the modes.txt ...?
HKR,, NV_R&T - ???
HKR,, NV_Modes, %REG_MULTI_SZ% - ???
HKR,, NV_Modes, %REG_SZ_APPEND% - ???

modes.txt - added 0314 - NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600XT and edited the resolutions bellow
---------
320 x 200 32 60 70 72 75
320 x 240 32 60 70 72 75
512 x 384 32 60 70 72 75
576 x 432 32 60 70 72 75
640 x 480 32 60 70 72 75 85 100
720 x 540 32 60 70 72 75 85 100
768 x 576 32 60 70 72 75 85 100
800 x 600 32 60 70 72 75 85 100
1024 x 768 32 60 70 72 75 85 100
1280 x 1024 32 60 70 72 75 85 100

Yet still I see after clean install these resolutions I did NOT want to see:
720x480
720x576
848x480
1280x720
1280x768
1280x960

Also, what to do with the "Horizontal Spanning Modes" and "Vertical Spanning Modes" when I did not want ANY. Delete these sections entirely?

...help?
