    Long time, but they are finally out after some heavy game testing, the new release of the Omega Drivers for nvidia cards.

    What's new?

    * Based in the 40.72 Official Drivers. (9x/ME/2k/XP)

    * Changed my version number of the drivers to better reflect
    which nvidia drivers they are based on. (9x/ME/2k/XP)

    * New control panel extensions included. (9x/ME/2k/XP)

    * Various settings modified to conform to new menu options. (9x/ME/2k/XP)

    ***IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!***
    When installing the 2k/XP drivers you will receive a message asking for a missing file called "NVRSENG.dll", just SKIP the file, I removed that file intentionally since it was causing explorer errors when opening the Windows Control Panel in some computers, the file is NOT necesary (just a help DLL file), it's just that I forgot to remove it from the INF file.

    Head over to my site for the download.

    Enjoy,
    Omegadrive

    hmm.....not sure if its just me, but when installing, the installer gets to the point where it is "registering fonts" and stops installing. The progress bar does not move, and nothing happens. All the files however (not sure about fonts) are located in the designated folder.

    [Edit] Nevermind, all it needed was a restart (d0h)

    yeah why not the 41.09 drivers since the 40.72 s***s and does a kind of mouse lockup everytime explorer is used (well in my case anyway) which i had no problem with using 41.09 + a better and more stabil performance.

    Hopefully the 41.09's will be next, but right now I'm reading and collecting information about them in different forums, and so far they are slower than the 40.72 (or so I have heard) and have some small problems, I'll download them later and give them a try.

    Please be patient, this is NOT a fulltime job :duh:

    Links 2003 Rendering Issue

    I have been usind the previous release of the Omega Drivers for my Inspiron 8100 with the Nvidia GeForce 2 - 32 MB Card. I used the MX/MX 400 and these fixed the screen freezes and rendering in Links 2003 Golf works great. I tried the latest drivers and now the rendering is slow and makes the game unplayable. I went back to the previous Omega's... excellent... Any assistance would be appreciated..... I know I'm just matching up similar drivers, but this worked fine with the previous Omega's.... thanks

    I believe the 41.09s are WHQL candidates, but not actually certified as of yet.

    What's the deal with these Omega drivers? I just don't get it, are they just 3rd party drivers that are tweaked from the originals? How are they better? Do they have extra features or somethin? I am curious- I like the new 41.09's because of the image quality- the digital vibrane in particular is outstanding and makes my games pop off the screen and makes my OS and everything else on the monitor look amazing. I want to know if these are worth trying out, and if they improve IQ/performance , how they do it.

    I went to the website, but it crashed when I downloaded a picture and it acts kinda funny (cursur hourglass goes nuts) so I didn't go back there.- I am interested though. Any detailed info on these would be helpfull, thanks-

    DaEnigma, What nvidia card do you have?

    BWX232. These are pre-tweaked drivers, same as nvidia ones, but with added internal tweaks and new resolutions, also the image quality is improved if you choose to use the quality setting when installing.
    Does my site crash, What browser are you using and what version?
    I have only tested my site with IE, Nestscape and Mozilla, any other browser is unsupported.
