Image quality seems fine after youve played with some settings - just make sure you have D3D Aniso set to 1x... otherwise some textures will appear nasty and pixelated as jbirney showed so well...

Was it just me or did that .reg file ass Vsync options under D3D as well? I sort of recall seeing an empty space there in the more Direct3D tab.

Hey NvNews, instead of being a fanboy site, how about doing a real review for once?
Thank you for posting your feedback in the Detonator 40.xx Feedback Thread. While it may sound like a "fanboy" thread it is in fact a Feedback thread and so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

As these were just released today (or was it yesterday...) we don't really have the final word on how they do what they do.

Can anyone show some picture comparing IQ the Det 40 and the last official detonators (all at default settings). Also what is Aniso x1???.

I want the best IQ, the days of bad IQ for speed are all gone so i will try this set if it has great IQ.

hehe maybe it is too much to ask

hence the refresh rate fix settings to be located in the D3D area... not to be an ass, but it's quite obvious that since it's not in a system area, but instead, renderer-specific area, that it would apply to that specific renderer
So has anyone attempted the RivaTuner (or any other) fix, to see if it works in OpenGL? I'll try it, but can't until later tonight...

In addition to the built in refresh tool, i found that Refresh Force seems to work fine (for both D3D and OGl)

note: Refresh Force doesnt work with Battlefield 1942 whereas the 40.41 built in one does

Yes sir! I'll quit my regular job, so I can get on that right away. But I've got an even better idea. You can do it yourself and post the results in this thread. Just be sure to give yourself a week or two to do a complete investigation.

Anyone else think the new control panel on the 40.41 drivers looks similar to 3dfx Tools? Anyways, the new drivers work great.
