Default Det 40.41 with Codecreature + IDV SpeedTree Demo

Well..yes i got an increase of 1000 with 3dmark2001 330 from 107XX to 118XX but I also notice soem problems with other programs...

Codecreature benchmark..there was some problem with the water....frame rate was the same as before (pics below)

IDV SpeedTree Demo.. saids something abt OpenGL feature missing and lists like tons of missing feature features.....(pics below)

besides that ....all the game i tired seems to be okay..NWN, GTA3, Crazy Taxi, Morrowind...

although it is only the benchmark program which is causing problems but it just bugs me to know there are problems with the drivers...so for me..i am going back to 30.83 until something non-beta comes out.

Well, I got no clue!

Seriously though, I get no errors in SpeedTree and the water in CodeCreates looks better than ever and the fps is higher too!

If I'm not mistaken, CodeCreates uses Direc3D, so try to move the slider in Direct3D control panel from 0x aniso to something else (like 1x or 2x - the speed decrease is minimal).

It could be due to the fact that the 40.41 drivers include support for OpenGL 1.4.0, while the previous 30.82 drivers included support for OpenGL 1.3.0. It's possible that some things in 40.41 OpenGL functionality have chanced (extenstions were modified, etc...), thus, the errors.

Also, about Code Creatures:

If I'm not mistaken (and I could be), it's using the OpenGL API (not Direct3D like I said earlier). There is a new option in 40.41 OpenGL control panel in the new 40.41 detonators (it's the last one, something about clamping behavior), try setting it to off, it could remove all the blockiness! (well, it sure did remove some very annoying lines in OpenGL games for me!).

This new functionality is gained through OpenGL 1.4.0 support which supports a new extension called GL_DEPTH_CLAMP.

Yup, that's a problem with the water. I ran Codecreatures and had absolutely *NO* problems with anything. I don't have my before / after comparisons but the frame rates, even at 1600 rez, were above 10FPS for the first time ever. Usually they dip below 10FPS at the high-rez.

The optimizations in the 40.xx dets are clearly kicking up my FPS. I'd guess you have a problem with your install.

Just for a sanity check -- did you fully remove the previous dets and reboot before installing the 40.xx version?

Well I'm getting the same Speedtree error... could it be that it detected settings in the previous dets that have been modified with the new dets? If so then removing speedtree and re-installing it may help. (Sorry I'm heading off...)

i installed det. 40.41 straight from a reinstall of windows xp, no other detonators were installed. and i did not have codecreatures or speedtree installed before the detonators, yet i am getting those two same problems that he has.

Well the good news is ive gained about 500 points on 3D Mark, the 'strange' news is ive suddenly gaines this really weird screen cursor, which is stretched, and screwed. I tried to do a screen shot of it but the Alt-Print Screen didnt capture my cursor.

Really strange..........
