Return of low-res-modes for NVidia Users!

category: general [glöplog]
The v185 driver release brings back the low-res-modes (<640x480) for all pre-gt200 cards. Finally we can watch a lot of classic windows demos again!

For the new list of supported modes see page 42+ here

For the old crappy mode list see page 50+ here

BTW: Fuckings to NVidia for >1 year without so many classic demos!

no problem with that - if your TFT is connected via DVI you should be able to switch to "NVIDIA scaling" or even "NVIDIA scaling with fixed-aspect ratio" and everything is fine!

*ARGH* in the following drivers the low-res-modes got disabled for all geforce cards (not only the pre-gt200).

Release Notes: v190.38 v190.62 v191.07 v195.62

I tested one of them and was not able to add one of the low-res-modes manually :-(

I resent all of you sending fuckings to nVidia, they've done loads for the scene.

Fuckings to the nvidia glsl compiler too, I hold that personally responsible for all the broken-on-ati demos! :)

rc55, well why don't you just MARRY THEM then
Unfortunately newest drivers for 9650M GT have been causing artifacts for over a half year.

Fuckings to ATI for having their driver CRASH more often than bearable! I dream of a company with a team like nVidia's driver team and another team like AMD's hardware team competing against BOTH of them.
