I see the 61.76 directory has now been added on nvidia's ftp site :) Still empty though :(

the 1.2 farcry patch may be released then as well if the driver set supports the patch
Empty??? Nooooo!!! WTH???
omg it is happening, i thought we averted disaster but apparently not (help)

Man! nVidia are a proper little tease.
Maybe they're waiting on Micro$oft to approve these for WHQL before they post them for download.
The "GF 6800 demos" are up, so i guess the drivers should be on the way too. :)

Well I was kinda hoping it wouldn't be 61.76. At first I thought they were rock solid but they're not. I had many problems with NFS Underground and Tiger Woods. Resolution would change all by itself to 800x600 and not allow me to turn it back up. Then major, major slowdowns, when not much happening...
Hmm.... hope it is the drivers and not the card!
EDIT: Which of those are the 6800 demos. Not all right?

Directory is no longer empty.
Is it just me, or are they up there now?
OMG sweet, they have 3D stereo drivers too!!
07-20-04, 10:32 AM
nope, its up! :D
07-20-04, 10:33 AM
when will they be on thier website???
And here's me, just installed 61.72's... *sigh*. Gotta go through that refresh rate overriding list AGAIN.
So when will they be on the site ?

anytime now. they just have to update it.

i hate the suspense
Anyone know if the demos are any different from the ones a lot of us have already? Meaning, are the early leaked versions the final version or have their been changes, bug fixes or whatever (not that I noticed any bugs or anything).
I'm assuming the 61.76s are the same since it was a RC that was leaked.
Hmmm... the drivers are there... there are two versions of the Release Notes, 61.76 and 61.77 (?)
do these have the much anticipated sm3.0 instructions? Or do we still have to rig it? Really wouldnt make sense to release these with no sm3.0 and then have the 1.2 far cry patch come out...

yeah 61.77 sound O_o
Yes SM 3.0 is fully supported according to the front page of nV News.
The new drivers are actually WHQL, whereas the RC 61.76 were not.

front page of nvnews :D
07-20-04, 11:11 AM
actually the PDF calls them 61.77 drivers with SM 3.0 support, but the filenames is 61.76
I am not at home so cannot try it out which is it?
