Omega (Any increase?)

#1
I have just tried the new OMEGA drivers for Nvidia cards....I have a Geforce 2 MX400 64 meg, and I must say that the change in graphic quality is deffintly noteable....I would just like to know about how any of you people have found them!!! Good, bad?

Or you could post some before and after benchmarks!!! I just want to make make the decision of wether or not I should stay with these drivers or go back to the newest detonators...........Thanks in advance......Nighthawk :)

Um, at the risk of sounding stupid: How do you install those Omega drivers? :rolleyes:

I downloaded them, extracted them and followed the instructions to the letter, but towards the end of the installation, an error box comes up saying it can't find a file. I can see all the other files being copied to the appropriate directory until it gets to a certain file (the alert doesn't specify which).

I've tried re-extracting the setup files with no luck. I've tried redownloading the setup with no luck. I've tried uninstalling the old drivers first with no luck. I've tried installing the new ones OVER the old ones with no luck. Between each of these "trials", I restore the system from the restore point just before these steps to avoid any conflicting problems.

So, now I'm back at my old drivers.

It seems everything goes ok until the last bit. How aggravating.
It's really not that big a deal, but I would like to see the qualuty of the drivers.

Hi, Im running the new Omega's and I dropped about 400 points in 3D Mark 2001 SE, but with 2x AA on the images are much better,
and no shimmering in the background either.
Let's be honest a slightly slower game which you wont notice anyhow is a good trade off ,unless you are hung up on
benchmark scores (which I used to be)!

Doesnt the website or install instructions state that these drivers wont function as theyre supposed if you use any sort of tweaking tool?

Hi, I got 8188 in 3D 2002 with a Ti 4200 at default and the Det 29.42 WHQL's. With Omegas 29.42's I got 7845 but the images were much sharper. I,m currently running the Det 30.30's and got
8500, but to recreate the Omega effect I have to use 2x AA;)

I cannot tell the difference also and I have more speed with dets
GF4Ti 4600 3Dmark2001SE 28.90(the best dets for me) 9137
>> >> Omegas 8740

So why change?

...

In case you can tell the difference, and it does improve the look of a game, I'd use them except that I can't tell the difference besides loss of FPS.

Dont trust the 3D mark when compairing omega drivers because thay will fool you. 3d mark looks for FPS and even the slightest change will throw it off (the omegas DO lower FPS a tiny bit, but the better graphics make up for the 0-5 FPS loss).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
