Default Aniso setting problem

I installed this driver but i have only x0 to x2 (in Direct3D) and in OpenGL only Disable or Enable. Wtf is going on?

In the last set I could choose from x2 to x8 (in OpenGL of course)

For those of you having refresh rate problems with these (or any!) drivers, there's this wonderful little program called reForce. I've used it successfully with both nVidia and ATI drivers. It is not memory resident, and does not have to be run at bootup or during games.

If you want to try it, you can download it here. I love it, I have it as a part of my main Backup CD so it's one f the first things I install after a format.

maybe you have sharpen textures on!!! And for those people pissed off about no Windows 9x/ME drivers......hello, wake up and get XP!!! They're not going to make anymore drivers for Windows ME anymore. Even ATI's new chip is only for 2000/XP and no 9x or ME support because that operating system can't handle it...it's an old operating system.

There is no support for win95 and 98, microsoft still gives certification to winmil drivers.

Default Visual Glitches/Flashes

After loading the drivers on 3 machines, 2 of them get "flashes" that show up covering either the whole upper half of the screen or the whole lower half. Kinda like V-Sync tearing only not quite. It always involves half the screen, not solid white just a lot of white garbage. If you load 29.80s, everything is fine. Battlefield 1942 shows the problem about every 60 seconds or so. Machine 2 has a refresh rate locker, #1 does not. Machine 1 shows 800 point increase in 3DMark2k1. Anyone else experience this?

Machine 1:
AMD 1800+
Win XP
Ti4600
Epox 8k3a+

Machine 2:
AMD 1700+
Win XP
GF2 GTS
Epox 8khal+

these drivers have caused no problems for me I think........unless my NVDVD is just being a stupid bitch!!! I installed Nero and it didn't work no more....I'm gonna have to uninstall Nero then....go back to stupid Roxio if I want to view DVDs on my comp with NVDVD. Sounds like a bad trade, but oh well......

I have installed the drivers and I am not able to get the OpenGL, Direct3d, and Overclocking settings in the Control Panel. How do you activate this?
