Lightbulb Re: BloodRayne 2 FSAA Patch 1.4

Ok, i remember that i tried that Forceware version (169.21), and the game was totally broken:

There're some issues with the latest nVidia drivers (Forceware 169.21):

- The super sampling AA modes are no longer working.

- The standard AA isn't working properly if you've the 'enhance in-game AA' option off, in the nVidia control panel.


The latest Forceware version that works properly with the patch is the 169.01.

I've been testing a new beta version (Forceware 171.16 XP Beta), and this is what i've discovered:

+ The Super Sampling AA mores are working again like a charm.


But:

- They caused instability problems in my rig.



I still cannot recommend them.

I've been testing the quadro driver this weekend (Forceware 169.61 XP WHQL):


+ Super Sampling AA modes are working properly.

+ Excellent stability & compatibility with the patch.

+ H264 hardware decoding works perfect !



You can download it at: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.61.html
I'm really happy with these new 169.61 from the Quadro. The most stable driver that i have used on a nVidia card. No hangs while playing h264 videos since i installed them 1 month ago, and the compatibility with my patch is excellent.

Version 169.21 was released for Crysis patch 1.1, and i remember that it caused horrible problems with BR2, even without my patch (a lot of effects were corrupted).

Hope this helps.

And yes, Fraps works great with my patch
