Thanks to Angelw1ng for reporting to us about this new beta driver.

New in Version 196.34

* Fixed a bug with v196.21 that prohibited GPU overclocking.

Thanks for the heads up. :)

I don't overclock, but I'll get it nonetheless.

You mentioned Angelw1ng. Is he the same Angelw1ng from the Bioware forums?

Not sure, ask him, he pops in with drivers he's hounded out for us.

You guys getting any issues with Win7 x64 install ?

Modded INF is giving me grief to get to work with this one.

Are you using the original INF or modded one ?

I'm having issues with English only installs, where the CPL refuses to install, aborting the install.
International version works just fine.

But I of course do need to use a modded INF

Not using a modified inf since my cards are supported. It would just hang during the installation and I have to force quit. I've already tried extracting the files and installing the package individually, but still the same thing. I think the package is corrupt or something. I'll try downloadng it again later to see if it works.

Yes you are right you did post it in the XP section :)

Shilk did you install the English only or International version ?

I'm having issues with the English only one.
Try the international one if you haven't already

English one. :) Installed it and it worked fine. Must have been a corrupt download or something. Didn't extract the files or anything this time and just ran the .exe file.

So far so good. I haven't noticed any anomolies, so I guess that's a good sign, lol.

I've also managed to sort my english only INF issues.

This driver is slightly different to .21 in how it installs.

Come to think of it one of my Downloads from NV the other day was also corrupt.
Can't remember which one, may well have been same as yours.

Is perfectly 'safe'. But if you have issues in-game, you can always revert to your previous driver set.

I normally wait to see what other say about them before installing though :D
