New performances for geforces 6/FX

Better management of the shaders for geforce fx

Compatible DX9 all Chart FX (except 5200/5500/5600)

Support ATI hdr

The file must be to install with:

For those which would not be reassured, you can safeguard the files dxsupport.cfg + stshader_dx9.dll before the installation! After installation, you will have only to recopy these two files to find your configuration of origin.

This patch works as advertised (at least on GF6 & GF-FX 5900XT.

A very nice piece of work. Managed to do what lard-arse Gabe and his "shady" programmers couldn't/wouldn't.
