Windows 7: OpenGL Games Broken


14 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate RC Build 7100
 
 
OpenGL Games Broken

edit:

On the Windows Update drivers, all the OpenGL games work perfectly fine. But if you try updating to more recent ones for Nvidia, they will render most OpenGL games broken.

Just a heads up now, figured out what was happening.

I tried this to fix opengl, in Neverwinter Nights, the game I tried it in, it got rid of the flickering bars, but the performance was unplayable. Around 1 fps or lower.

I am using that version and still having the problem.

The problem should lie in 64-bit because I have no problems with OpenGL on my laptop which is installed with windows 7 32-bit.

Doom3 has horrible flickering on anything other than the windows beta drivers , sucks really because the windows drivers are not that great. So i can't play doom 3 but i will still use the nvidia beta drivers

the whql drivers won't make a difference since they are dated(Date Modified) the same as the beta's.

Is there a fix available or known? I have problems in all my OGL Games, when playing in fullscreen with the 185.20 vista64 drivers on my laptop Nvidea 7950 GTX.
Have to run them in a window and the performance is badly affected by these "bad" drivers.
