Angry New Steam Update screws up nvidia settings

I tried the BETA of steam 3.0 a few days ago and found it comletely ignored any settings I had in the nvidia control panel, specifically AA and High Quality. Now they have forced us all to use the new Steam and it still has the same problem (so shimmering is back). Amazing how they went from buggy beta to buggy full release in less than a few days.

I will from this day on, only steal VALVE software. I just can't take it anymore. Last straw.

Er I have had no issues with profiles... I use 8xSS and TranMS all the time... Haven't had shimmering since the 7800GTX fix either.

Oh and your a jackass. No matter how much you hate a developer, piracy is not ok. Your a complete ****tard by doing so, wana hurt them... just don't buy/play it.

Have you tried it today. HL2 ignores any settings in the nvidia control panel. This means that High Quality is ignored and its shimmering again because of it.

I see its another case of Valve selectively shafting people.

I got it fixed by the way. I had to add the steam.exe to the HL2 profile so the settings get applied. Be nice if valve did something... ever that didn't require user intervention to fix afterwords.

Maybe its an nvidia issue? I use nHancer to create my profiles, all that is listed as an executable for my profile is HL2.exe

What Card and Drivers do you have?

only 8xSS works here in direct3d games since 81.84 drivers. Max Payne 2 and Hhalf-Life 2 give me problems unless the profile AA is 8xSS. I wish nVidia would fix the damned thing already. It's not Valve!

Tried it today, and I dont see any shimmering at all, and it did keep all my setting that I put in the Nvidia control panel.
