NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 391.35 Drivers

  • 11,843
  • 0
Despite having released drivers for Sea of Thieves only a week ago, NVIDIA has released another set of drivers focused on making improvements to Far Cry 5. The older release was 391.24 released on the 20th March.

While the headline is all about providing the optimal gaming experience for Far Cry 5, it does have the following other fixes:
  • GeForce 3D Profile Manager tool can't import profiles. [2076480]
  • [GeForce Experience]: Memory leak occurs leading to poor game performance when using NVIDIA Freestyle. [2068039]
  • [NVIDIA Control Panel][SLI][Diablo III]: With V-Sync on and SLI enabled, the game freezes after switching windows (ALT+TAB) a few times. [1951584]
  • [Notebook]: The driver may fail to initialize the GPU. [200354056]
Amazingly it is a more security focused update once you get past the gaming fluff:

Worth downloading then, even if you don't game!

Windows 10 Twitter app updated

Twitter increased the character limit for each tweet to 280 back in November 2017, but the Windows 10 application was still restricted to 140.

They have corrected this yesterday by releasing Version 6.0 which is also apparently a PWA (Progressive Web App) which, if you have alerts enabled might have been obvious as it informs you that a login via Microsoft Edge has just been completed.

While this was the biggest request from users in the Feedback hub, it did have other issues. Live Tiles are a big part of Windows 10 apps but Twitter previously only actually showed tweets and images from tweets (both of which made things slightly more interactive and pretty) if you were logged out. If you were logged in it only showed you notifications even if you have read and dismissed them on other devices. You would have to go into the app, read the notification in there, while having the start menu open and it would then go back its default blue live tile.

The update today does not have any live tile activity if you are logged in or out, it also seems to inform you "By using Twitter's services you agree to our Cookie Use. We and our partners operate globally and use cookies, including for analytics, rationalisation, and ads." - even if you dismiss it, this notification returns each time you open the app.

Overall an improvement and nice to know it hasn't been abandoned, hopefully there are future enhancements forthcoming, there are very few interesting Windows 10 apps to populate the Start Menu so the most popular really need to put the effort in.

First HTC U12+ information leaks out

HTC-U12.jpg
The very first information about HTC's 2018 smartphone, code named the HTC Imagine, have leaked onto the internet courtesy of Evan Blass from Venture Beat and as expected, combined with previous information received, it is shaping up to be a real animal.

At this point, we have only got a low quality render but it does show the front and back sides and along with that dual cameras on both the back and the front.

Information previously leaked suggests that the device will come with the Snapdragon 845 (par for the course this year), along with a 6 inch screen. 6GB of RAM, Oreo on board as expected and a larger battery than previous years. Other information suggests that this will be HTC's only flagship of the year, but that has been said before and still refreshed versions have been released.

HTC have obviously been struggling of late, but their Pixel 2 design was highly successful which led to the team behind that moving over to Google directly, so it remains to be seen what the long term impacts of that will be and if this is the start of something new, or another final nail in the coffin.

Why update?

- Added support for:
  • G560 LIGHTSYNC PC Gaming Speaker
  • G513 Silver RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • G513 Carbon RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • G512 Carbon RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

  • Destiny 2
  • Fortnite
  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance

This is the first release for a few months, so the lack of new features is largely underwhelming, but it was released after the first few users received the new G560 LightSync speakers so they will have been waiting for these drivers with great anticipation.

Skype for Windows 6.16

  • 63,846
  • 0
Skype is a freemium voice-over-IP service and instant messaging client, currently developed by the Microsoft Skype Division. The service allows users to communicate with peers by voice using a microphone, video by using a webcam, and instant messaging over the Internet. Phone calls may be placed to recipients on the traditional telephone networks. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free of charge, while calls to landline telephones and mobile phones are charged via a debit-based user account system.

Fixed bugs since 6.14
- blocked contacts appearing in Skype Home,
- no input fields (blue window) in login Window,
- crash when chat name contains "&#" characters.

The release blog announcement also suggests that Windows 8 users will also get a spellchecker, which is great as it is definitely the area where I make the most typos.
