    The official driver is out, get it here .

    Now tell me what you think...

    Update:
    Uploaded the "b" version of the XP drivers, the "a" version had a problem with OpenGL and GTA3 games not running, now is solved in the "b" version. If you downloaded the first version, please download the new one and make sure it says "1.0.42b".

    K.I.L.E.R., do other OpenGL games work? Or it is just that one?

    Since I don't currently have XP installed I couldn't test it enough (I Mean, the XP driver), maybe it's a bug in my drivers, let me know...

    All Ogl games do this not just Q3 engine based ones. But Direct 3d looks awesome. I never thought playing without Aniso can look that dern good especially in D3d games.

    OK then, It will take about two hours, but I'll install XP and check the drivers, just to make sure.
    In the meantime, just copy the "nvoglnt.dll" from the normal nvidia 29.42 drivers into your Windows\System32 folder, replacing the 29.60 file I used, that will fix it (I think), let me know if it works...

    Just re-installed the official nvidia drivers (v29.42 from nvidia.com) and GTA3 works fine =) so it must be the drivers... do you have ICQ or AIM? so we can get the omega drivers fixed asap..

    Nvidia Geforce 2 MX 100/200 32Megas

    If this helps you:
    The opengl mode didn´t function me when I tried to play the last version of counter-strike. I´m running Windows XP 256M RAM DDR. I have realised that your drivers haven´t create me a key in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video and when I´ve reinstalled my older detonator they´ve done that.
    I think I´ve installed them correctly: download and run .exe file and locate and install .inf file from properties. If I am in a mistake let me know please.

    GooD LuCk, :rolleyes:

    You are doing it fine kepaja, the problem was me :rolleyes: , I used the 29.80 OpenGL file in the 29.42 XP drivers, but I didn't tested it (the mix worked fine in 9x), so it seems that nvidia "locked" the drivers so they can't be mixed.
    I'm uploading a new version ASAP with the correct files included, when ready I'll update the main page and links.

    Sorry...

    I knew it!

    I knew SoF2 was playing way too smooth for the 29.42 set, I just knew it!

    Great job again O-man, I am totally blown away! (In a very happy way. :) )
