View Full Version : MOHAA, Volumetric Fog and Forceware 52.16

10-29-03, 07:33 PM
Try as I might, I can no longer run MOHAA or it's expansions with volumetric fog enabled anymore. :( The game crashes almost instantaneously as the mission loading screen appears. This has never been an issue with the 40x series Dets. Can anyone else confirm this does/doesn't happen to them?

I will try tonight MOHHA later tonigh but Wolfenstien: ET doesnt even work for me and in Raven Sheild is now a jittery slow mess and its not my connection. There drivers have F@#Kup my system. I even tried uninstalling them and cant install anything but them...I went back to the previous ones and they wouldnt even show up in my system. I have never had a problem liek this and cant figure it out for anything. My system was a stable beast before these damn drivers.:mad:

Don't feel bad. I went so far as to uninstall them also, and run two driver cleaners; then re-install. Same exact behavior afterward. Unfortunatly there is just no going back anymore, I can't give up what the DirectX 9 boosts other games recieved. But damn, why does there always have to be some catch 22 bug? In regards to stability these drivers remind me of early ATI catalyst revisions *shudder* (Nothing against ATI, I actually have a 9700 Pro in my second machine) Don't get me wrong, the games that work; work beautifully. But to then turn around and get a crash in a 1 - 2 year old game, that make you think... WTF chuck!?

I wish Nvidia would come out with their own driver cleansing utility. If anyone knows where all the registry keys, and driver files are scattered, it'd be Nvidia. I know I've done my fair share of indiscriminatly installing beta drivers in the past. But a total windows re-install shouldn't be a prerequisite to upgrading video drivers. I've never had so much trouble with Dets as I have with the 5X.XX series.

I've NEVER had a problem with any Detonator drivers until the 5x.xx. Fortunately, I got the 44.03's back on and all is well. It'll stay that way until the next Forceware version. The 52.16's are complete crap!!!!

Anyone? Is anyone else having issue with volumetric fog crashing Medal of Honor: Allied Assault? Or is it just me?

MOHAA plays just fine with 52.16 for me, i enabled volumetric fog just to see, and its still fine. i have a ti4200 tho, maybe its FX related?

Yeah, I'm using a BFG 5900 ultra. Can anyone who uses a FX give a YAH or NAY on whether or not volumetric fog is working for them in MOHAA?

Sorry, I dont have RTCW anymore, but I am running UT2003 and UR2. Ive noticed going from 45.23's to 52.16's a little difference in rendering(oddly enough). Synthetic tests dont show too much difference.

Not sure if it's for the better :POKE:

I hear about BFG, and they seem to go either way, review wise, but Since they have a solid warranty, why worry?
