Dmumu, it's alright man... all you have to do is let them know when things don't work, in effect you already have been doing that.. so go for it eh!

ok, tried the betas and the same error occur (that with "object not set to an instance of an object") ...googled and found smth on microsoft support, but it is related to db acces, however, installed .net framework sdk (just in case) and still the same.
....at least the last beta doesn't start at all so i cannot complain anymore about this error

to be honest, the only version which did start the games i've tried on was the "Version 1.0 PublicBeta3" but with that "beta3 expired" message so i suppose that's why the modules i've selected didn't run.

Lewis, check the ini file ut2k4 has its own Triple buffering it has some confliction
with directx tweaker TB , so just stick with the main game's TB.

One of the only games that the devs put the TB option in by choice
nobody else does


Also the TB option in nvidia control panel has no control over Direct3d games
its an opengl option only

It does work... but beware if a game is too intense the extra buffer
COULD cause hitching, its a big could

Also, as you increase the amount of "buffers" the system is getting further away from the actual event you are seeing.

In a single player game this wouldn't really be much of an issue, but in a multi-player game you should take that into consideration.

I just signed up to say that yes this tweak works great. Not sure that everyone else can say the same but I saw a 10 - 15 fps increase when using tb with vsync on. I never used to like vsync cause it always made everything run slow, but now everything runs faster with it on.

Just so that other people can get an idea of what I got my gains with, my hardware is 3800+ x2, 2GB ram, 6800GT, 3 x 120 Raid 0.

So I can confirm that it does wonders for a 6800GT. (most people on here seem to have 7800's)
