This is the greatest software since sliced bread. If sliced bread was software, that is. Actually, its better than sliced software...wait. Bread? Who? What?

I had forgot how nice Vsync was. This is so great.

The TB option has been available in the NVIDIA drivers since 77.77 i think, no need for Coolbits or RT, just enable Advanced settings and the option will be there, the TB option only works in conjunction with v-sync, with v-sync + TB your FPS wont be reduced to half of your refresh rate. In my case where the refreshrate of my monitor is 60 the FPS in OpenGL games would drop down to 30 whenever the 60 FPS couldn't be maintained, this is with just v-sync enabled

You can enable TB in earlier versions by editing the Registry but it doesn't show up as an option in the Control Panel

if quake4 mp uses anti-cheat protection it's not going to like dxtweaker running at the same time since dxtweaker uses similar methods as cheating programs.

if you don't get the option for triple buffering in the nvidia driver panel itself then the driver your using doesn't support triple buffering. it doesn't matter wether you tick triple buffing in nhancer or rivatuner if the driver doesn't have that feature.

triple buffering and trilinear filtering are not the same.

Is this with NHancer or DXTweaker? I haven't used either one, but I might if it improves performance in FEAR and NFSMW. I'm thinking this may help with NHL 06 as well.
