Default Re: nHancer feedback thread

First up, we need an nhancer thread in the GTX200 forum, either that or this thread needs to move to the forceware forum.

Anyway, on to the reason I'm posting.

I've just upgraded my system from two 8800GTX's in SLI to two GTX280's in SLI (quite an adventure it was too - the damn boxy casing fouled half of my SATA ports so I had to remove the outer shell from those, bent the wires at right angles, epoxy up the exposed wiring and pray it worked, which it did) and I then installed FW178.13. Previous to this I was using FW177.73 with the 8800's.

I went into nHancer and a whole swag of anti-aliasing options seem to be missing, whether its due to the forceware drivers or the GTX280's I don't know. For instance no combined 32xS mode, no SLI-AA 32x mode.

Is there a beta version of nHancer or something I need to use? If its the forcewares, I'll be going straight back to 177.73 and staying there (will test this in a little while once I remove the 7900's from the other SLI rig and replace them with the 8800's).
