All still perfect with driver 191.07 in my sig rig. No problems with Batman or Fluidmark...though Batman is a much more immersive game than Fluidmark I must say...
I thought this would work without using a NVIDIA card.
Worked right off the bat for me. Maybe you should try doing a full uninstall and reinstall of the ATI + NV drivers.
I'm glad you resurrected this thread. I was just wondering to myself if this patch still works. I have an 8800GTX and about to upgrade to an 5870. I'm thinking the 8800GTX should make for a good physx card.
I do have a question though.. will I be able to keep up to date with the latest drivers for my new ATI card with this patch?
Yes. I'm using Cat 10.2 with the latest NV driver as of 2-3 days ago (I'm not home to check what version). There is a catch however when you go with Cat 10.2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdVEMMbf0zc).
Derfman, run FluidMark and makes sure you get hardware acceleration. I had to follow the steps in the YouTube clip I posted to get things to work but if you don't have to that's great. I'm not running 196.34. I'm running 196.21.
is this still working. interesting
Yes.AciDeX said:Thanks for the guide Derfman, helped me get my XFX 5850 installed today and setup my 8800GT as a physX card.
I'm using the 196.34 drivers from your link and the Catalyst 10.3 Beta dirvers. Works like a charm in Batman:AA and Fluidmark.
I did have some trouble at first, but I think I may not have removed my old nVidia drivers completely. Uninstalled the nvidia drivers and everything went smooth the second time.
Derfman: How the heck are you getting a score of 11666 (Minimum FPS 145) using a 9800GT as a PhysX card?
I got 8641 with a 9800GT (Minimum FPS 73), and 10823 with a GTX260 (minimum FPS 104).
Both of those scores are lower than yours, and (obviously) limited by the PhysX card. Your numbers look more like a GTX275
Sorry maybe I'm blind but didn't see it anywhere in this thread or via Google.. but does anyone else have problems with the physx mod file being flagged as a trojan? NOD32 is all "Do not want" when I try to download it.
I agree. That number is way too high unless he's pushing that 9800GT to some insane limit. Even your score of 8641 is almost 2000 over mine. I just ran FM 1.1.1 with his settings and this is what I got:
Maybe he's upgraded his PhysX card and forgot to change his signature. That's the only explanation I can come up with.
It still works. However, I've noticed that if you restart Win7 your desktop settings will revert to "extended." You can repeat the process of tricking your desktop it into showing only one desktop and still working with ATI CCC, the NV Control Panel and PhysX though. I've verified this with CAT 10.2, 10.3 and NV 195.62, 196.21, 196.34. I used Driver Sweeper each time.
No issues with the file here. I still have a copy of the 1.2 version that has been functional for a while. Is it giving you warnings regardless of where you download it?
I've been trying to download it from physxinfo.com - I actually sifted through the comments and some people say they are having the same issue also, apparently due to the installer program that is used. NOD32 just terminates the connection when it almost finished, letting me know the trojan was detected in the download. I mean, I could make an exception for it I guess but is there any other place that is known to be trustworthy where I can try downloading it?
Has anyone else noticed that after setting this up in win 7x64 that CPUz and hwmonitor don't run or is it just me? My install is fresh my new setup has a 5870 and a 9800gt for physx
Yes, CPUz x64 doesn't work for me either. Luckily use I Everest Ultimate.
