I just went back to the 30.30 after getting a blue screen saying that it was the display driver that caused it. It happenned in Madden 2003 and nascar racing 2002. They were faster drivers but if they are,nt stable then it is a no go.

Well, they are Beta "use at your own risK" drivers, it even says so on Nvidia's site. Not sure i'd even call them an "officail" release.

Regards,
Mike

I tried out the monitor rotation feature. It works okay. I fired up Jedi Knight2 but the screen resolution never changed, it just windowed the game. (The screen resolution changed fine when the monitor wasn't rotated) On the up side, the game still ran stable and fast as ever even when played sideways on my monitor. It isn't a feature of much use with my current monitor, but I've got some friends with LCDs who would love it.

Anyone else getting artifacting in nature test on 2001se? I never have before but I am since going to 40.41. It pops up in other places too in the benchmark but is most noticeable in the nature test. NFS:PU seems to crash on replays now but thats the only game I've tried.

Has anyone been able to overcome the darkness problem with quake 3 engines without addional 3rd party software/hacks...

Edit... Solider Of Fortune 2 is fine, only Jedi Knight 2 atm has the darkness problem.

Espically nature. I mean heck i never even got close to 100 fps ever. And then i did!!!!!! I know 3dmark2001SE is just a benchmark tool but still oh my god!!!!! Now let me go try out FSAA and AF performence speed now, and real games i play!!!!
Yep, improvements in benchmarking-software is the greatest, isn't it? I mean, none of us uses these expensive 3D-cards to PLAY GAMES right? We just use 'em to run 3DMark.

Default Quake Engine Games...

Still can't figure out this Q3 engine problem...
Using a GeForce1 Quake3 is way dark, adjusting the brightness in-game or the gamma in the control panel washes everything out...

Using a GeForce3 with the same Q3 setup, everything is fine and lovely!
(and v.fast - anyone else notice 2xaa performance seems better!?!?)..

Anyone know a good driver set for the Geforce 1 ?? I can't play quake like this...

Default tried New 40.41 drivers

hi,
tried the new drivers and odd games have improved a lot with more graphic detail being drawn but others got problems with playing dark

Athlon xp 1700
ECS K7S5A
Geforce 2 pro 64mb
256mb PC2100 DDR
Hercules Fortissmo 2


Grand Prix 4 - More graphics being drawn and slightly smoother fps

Unreal Tournament - Dark graphics and turned brightness up nearly full and no improvement, fps wise simular to before but felt slightly jerky odd times

Quake 3 demo - Ran timedemo 1 and got same fps as before 176.9fps

3Dmark 2001 se - gained 50 marks to 4551 from 4500 with 30.82 drivers.

Not tried anymore games, if Nvidia sort the problems out people having with dark graphics and get the smoothness back from 30.82 drivers these will serious rock in score and games.

So back to 30.82 drivers for me
