    nVidia Refresh Rate Fix MKII for Detonator 40.41

    nVidia Refresh Rate Fix MKII v2.00 E

    Features
    - Solves 60 Hz bug for DirectDraw, Direct3D and OpenGL
    - Lets you specify refresh rates from 60 up to 240.
    - Compatible to Detonator 40.41
    - Also works with older Detonators, since 28.32

    Description
    If you have a nVidia graphics card, you'll probably know about the very common bug, that occurs together with the nVidia Detonator drivers under Windows NT/2000/XP: Normally, you can't get a higher refresh rate than 60 Hz in the OpenGL/Direct3D modes, which makes you very blind after a while of gaming. ;-) I programmed this tool, to fix this bug, since I could not find an existing tool for this on the internet, which is compatible with the new official Detonator v28.32 drivers. There already were some tools around that supported the older Detonator versions.



    IT WORKS !!!!!!!! yes finally opengl games on nvidia cards with XP at 100mhz + ......... I am so happy !!!!!!!!!!!1:D :D :D :D

    Kermit- Just so you know, rather than using a driver dependent refresh fixer. Use one that detects your monitor hardware instead.

    RefreshForce doesn't get screwed everytime ATi or nVidia decide to change their driver structure.

    Give it a try. You'll be pleasently suprised.

    Yes...RefreshForce is nice. I like how it auto-detects my refresh settings!

    Refreshforce never fixed opengl games ....... not for me it did not


    This fixes opengl and yes its amazing at the difference 60mhz to 100mhz but you have to set the limit your moniter has ...be carefull!!

    Well, I don't think I have to worry about it, personally. If I go over, I get an "Out of Range" message on my monitor.
