Latest Geforce Driver Available
As per the thread title, the Geforce 306.23 WHQL 64 bit driver is now available. It can be downloaded here. Seems like it is/was engineered mostly for the 600 series Nvidia cards, but I'm tempted to try it for my 550...anyone installed it yet?

Yeah I installed it and it made my 550TI just a little better, the shakes are less noticeable in TA

The latest one to come out on Oct 10th is also very good - improved my FPS by 5+. Do get if you use a recent Nvidia card. I saw they said on the notes they will stop supporting older GF7's soon within the main driver package, it will go to legacy drivers.

Also for better FPS, use the Tribes Ascend Advanced Graphics Configuration app you can dl off the official forums (post under general discuss) and turn stuff down.

Planeswalker is referring to the 306.97 WHQL driver and it can be downloaded here. Thanks for the update PW. I will be installing it soon and trying it out in T:A tonight along with the Advanced Graphics Configuration app you referred us to if I can locate it. Happy

Planeswalker, is this the app you're talking about?

Okay Planes...I've concluded that this indeed is the app you suggested we download and install. Before I install it, I must ask a few questions because I don't have a clue about which settings to modify:

1. First, which OS do you use?
2. 32 or 64 bit?
3. Which settings in the app work best for you?

Thanks in advance.

I installed the driver lastnight and never noticed any increased or decreased performance. I am using a GTS 250 though, so I never had any expectations lol.

RE: Latest Geforce Driver Available
Ok finally found the forum again.

Yeah thats the app, if you read the descriptions of each setting that it shows, most have a recommended on or off. The main ones for FPS are - disabling extra visual goodies like the tree leaves, scenic light shafts, shadow detail, etc.

Turning off the 2 tree settings shows the bare tree skeletons - no more blockage of your view, and the skeletons left are the actual parts of the tree you can impact; good to know when moving at high speed or are in a shrike.

I use win7 64. vid is gt630 2gb, so I optimize for nvidia.
