issues in vista with 100.54 driver + 8800
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory = won't launch because of unsupported OS
Call of Juarez = game launches fine, but no keyboard or mouse support


Don't think these two issues have to do with display drivers... sound liek those are game issues with the OS.

You can play NFSCarbon: you have to set compatibility mode to Windows 98, it will play - if it still does not, you will have to RENAME the folder "movies" to somethign else and it will work.

For splinter cell, over at the nvidia.com forums, there's a thread about it. You can play double agent without setting compatibility mode to XPSP2, but if it does not work, you may have to try setting compatiblility mode. I have heard over there the corruptions are gone with 100.54 w/8800 cards

thanks i will try that for carbon, how slow is it in compability mode?

plus in double agent i'm forcing HDR+AA and works fine untill you get to the prison, where the corruptions start, screen goes black

With Carbon, i ran it with 100.30, but I have not tried 100.54. I want to wait for 100.56 or whatever comes tomorrow. The great news is that DA will work flawlessly (minus the stupid -ll startup shortcut) w/8800 & 100.54.

In CARBON, I was getting low 20's and vsync was LOCKED when Iused 100.30 drivers. I couldn't understand why - annoying - but if you remove either the movies in the install directory's directory named: "movies" or rename that directory, the game should load up - ensure compatibility is set to win98 though.

Give it shot and see if it runs smoother than 100.30 - I hope it does - the game is pretyt good looking - DA is what I want to run and it sounds like it does!

Yes, in DA, the corruptions are the sh_itty when you hit hte prison level. I had to turn AA off, KEEP HDR on @1280x1024. W/100.30, DA was fuked up bad - distorted characters just like in Halo PC...I was so pissed...so I reverted back to XP 97.92 and man, it's so niiiice (minus AA)

Maybe just a stupid question ;) but why are some geeks so hurry to run Vista for gaming now ??

Personnally, my major concern is performance (with my E6600@3.2 + 8800gtx) and for sure, i'll stay on XP for the 3 following months

The only thing which could force me to buy & install Vista is the first GOOD Directx10 title (in this cas, no choice)

Sorry for the off-topic but i was not understanding why so much people were excited by Vista (especially if you spend most of ur time on pc games)

They are supposed to be 100.54. I have a feeling Nvidia will release this set with WHQL -

For me I have the following problems with 100.54 + 8800GTX

Oblivion: Weird blocky images that kind look like space invaders in green and yellow colors appear on the textures and in the sky. They become especially evident if you pause the game.

NWN2: Same block images from Oblivion appear on the screen at all times. Always green and always in the same place.

Company of Heroes: Same block images as before only they are attached to the game textures now. On the soldier uniforms, faces and the ground. I even spotted some underwater and the water light defraction calculations were being ran on it. This appears to be some kind of texture corruption.

I don't notice this problem when running 3DMark06 or in Lego Star Wars. Also, the Aero desktop runs and looks fine.

I can't find anyone else having this problem though. Might be just me.

If I have to return this card because it's a hardware problem, I'll never buy NV again.

after the first vista compability patch released yesterday, NFS Carbon works now, with no windows 98 compability set in properties, but its allot slower.

I can get NFS:MW working but I can't get NFS:Carbon working even with the latest patch. What hotfix are you talking about or is it the latest patch for NFS:Carbon? Also Oblivion has big slowdowns and AA+HDR doesn't work properly at all.

after that application compability update from windows update yesterday, Carbon works for me, but slow as hell, at least 20-25FPS drop.

Most Wanted still doesn't work for me, freezes in the menu, and after that infinite look of driver recovery,

I got get the shadow problem with every driver thats for the 8800 up till 100.54 which is the latest drivers i have tried. Will give the 100.59 a try.

The shadow problem is evident in both XP and VISTA.

It's ironic that the game has nVidia's TWIMTBP approval. :thumbdwn:
