quake 3 ran dark for me as well, turning up the brightness and the game was getting a bit washed out in colors.

Talking

I have the same probelm with quake 3. My gamma is all borked. But i can fix with in game slider. Now this floored me. I play Urban terror (q3 mod) only. Now before i could play 1280x1024 w/2x AA and 2x AF and get about 60-70fps. If i went above that IQ i would get ~35-40fps and lag. Just for the hell of it i changed to 4x AA and 8x AF and at the same res. im getting the same FPS ~60-70 and looks great albeit the gamma thingy. Now thats amazing. Sucks they do this now after i just ordered my radeon 9700 (which is in the mail now) just for the IQ. Oh, well. Cant win em all. Also, my ti4600 is NOT overclocked.

Exclamation *ahem*

I do believe some gentlemen inquired as to the release status of the 9x/me version of these drivers....which I also must profess I am most partial to aquiring for my own analysis.

PLEASE nVidia, cut us 98se dinosaurs some slack and make with the goods!!!! We want better gaming too!!!!

IQ seems great with these drivers and my nature scores have increased as well. Actually my fps on each test of 3dMark seem to have gone up but my final score has dropped from 13486 to 12380.

Have tested MOHAA and WarcraftIII and both games appear to run smoother and look better. Not sure whats up with 3dMark but I'm gonna leave them on for now.

Have installed these drivers twice. After the first install and using Refresh Force 1.10 I had severe corruption in 3dMark and in games. After uninstalling and reinstalling no corruption. What's a good program to fix the refresh rate?

i have a feeling these drivers were just tweaked for benchmarks . ^_^ cuz in Codecreatures demo, i went from 31.00 @ 20 fps to 40.41 @ 10 fps (1024x768x32)and this demo is heavy on graphics lol

I think they will be releasing WIN98/ME drivers very soon. If you look at Nvidia's site. They removed all WIN98/ME drivers, even the 30.82's. They wouldn't do that unless they had something to replace them.

Let me address this current trend of dismissing 3dMark...Personally, I do not live by benchmark numbers and I do not brag to everyone about my scores. However, I do feel that they represent solid information regarding the performance of my system.
Thank you pelly.. Ive been trying to say the same thing... This bandwagon 3dmark dissathon has become irratating. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that it is a decent benchmark.

lol. Improvement in nVidia drivers one day before 9700 shipments arrive at newegg.com. What a coincidence, eh?

Anybody know if these performance enhancements work on a Geforce 3 Ti500?

I'm not sure I want to install them. I've lost a little performance on EVERY driver since 23.11's. And if the Performance enhancements only work for Geforce 4's... I'm gonna be pissed.
