I'm getting these wierd graphical glitches running Sam 2 and a 7800gtx. I'm using 84.21's but I've seen them on early drivers as well. Best described as moving shadows "only in the distance' as I'm moving

Interesting but no clue. Perhaps a rendering issue with the lod? Is it only visible in this specific driver set?

No it happens on the previouse set also..83. somthings SS has a LOD setting, but for the life of me I dont know what it means:confused:

Also when I run FarCry with HDR + AA I get this http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=16819&stc=1&d=1142865249
I thought the Nvidia cards supported HDR. Please be patient with me :o I've just went from a 9700pro to the 7800gtx card, and am learning the little tricks of the forceware drivers. You don't think this is an hardware issue, do ya?:afraid:

hi ;)
dont worry i had grafic failures in SSam2 in online-games. i couldnt see some enemy-monsters and after some time real artifacts. I think its not the driver which doesnt have a ss2 profile :( but a bug of game.

Never had probs in FarCry since 81.98. U ll need the beta patch version 4 which hasnt support from ubisoft if u want to use HDR and Anti-Aliasing and the new 143 version of hoc-benchmark-tool if u want to test FC.

Last time, sry i couldnt remember the driver, i had real artifacts in different benchmarks 3D from futuremark although my pc and card is allright. it was definetely a driver bug.

Did u formated ur HDD because no driver cleaner could help to clean the registry after a change from ATi to Nvidia ? im sry but i must recommend u a full new installation of win XP which is good for performance too :)

please read guru3d.com forums too :) many helps for nvidia drivers. Deinstall drivers, boot into F8-safe-mode, use a driver cleaner, unzip driver exe into c:/windows and install drivers manually with hardware device manager :)

i hope i could help. gga :o
crocket :p

Turn off AA. Farcry's HDR breaks it.
