............. I just tried to upgrade my drivers. 175.16 were useless for me with all kind of graphics trouble (could have been because of some basic setting but I was too impatient to try all possible combinations in nVidia control panel) but then I tried 163.75
and everything works now perfectly both in 36 and 60 fps. No "wobbling" any more.
I´ve got a GeForce 7600 GT.
That's interesting Kanzo. I tried the 60FPS patch today, and I can't get it to work satisfactorily at all. Previously, with the OpenGL v2 rasterizer and 175.16 drivers, I could run at 1280x1024 with 32-bit colour, full anisotropic and trilinear filtering, 4x anti-aliasing and all the other nice bells and whistles, and everything was nice and smooth, even at Monaco Rocks. Pribluda usually floated at about 33-36 FPS.
With the 60FPS patch in place, Pribluda tells me that I'm getting better framerates, but all my eyes see is the scenery jerking left and right every time I go around a corner. With Vsync, Prib says I'm getting ~42/43 FPS (obviously this is locked to half my refresh rate, which is 85Hz). Without Vsync, it says I'm getting between 50-60 FPS. But my eyes totally disagree. As I'm going round Curva Grande at Monza, the tree textures seems to be scrolling to the left at about 2 FPS! Very strange.
I've just found the 163.75 drivers by Googling for them (they're so old that I couldn't find them directly on the nVidia website!) and I'll try installing them and see what happens. But if (as I suspect) some of my other games/software breaks, I'll be reverting to 175.16 and turning off the 60FPS patch. I just hope that if I want to try on-line racing in future that I can find an unpatched server and unpatched drivers to drive with.
