Yet antoher version of this driver, which is quite a popular one. Zer0point Drivers are modified Forceware drivers, meaning they are NOT supported or endorsed by nVidia, or any 3rd party OEM manufacturers. They are not covered by any warranty or guarantee, and you install them at your own risk. Currently these drivers are for all GeForce based desktop cards. (If it’s not on a laptop, and says either GeForce or Quadro in the name, it’s supported) Mobile support is, not yet present.
-=[Install Paths for Game Optimizations]=-
The HL2 tweaks work on both HL2 AND CS:S, if you copy them to both locations. Choose whether you have a 6x00 series, or a 5x00 series card. For Doom3, choose whether your card has 256MB RAM or 128MB. If you selected any game configs during install, the .cfg files should be automatically installed to the appropriate game directory, as noted below...
HL2 autoexec.cfg -> Steam\SteamApps\USERNAME\half-life 2\hl2\cfg\
CS:Source autoexec.cfg -> Steam\SteamApps\USERNAME\counter-strike source\hl2\cfg\
Doom3 autoexec.cfg -> Doom3\base
FarCry game.cfg -> Farcry\
An additional game tweak possible is to enable sm3.0 path on Farcry, this however requires editing your farcry shortcut to make it look like this \FarCry\Bin32\FarCry.exe -DEVMODE "r_sm30path 1" if you don't know how to do this don't worry about it but you should notice some performance increases on Nvidia 6x series cards with this added.
A quick note on the ltcycfg tool, this is a very helpful tool we found for adjusting latencies on the add-on cards in a system, sound cards, network cards, video cards etc... We found this tool on Guru3d and after looking around reading the readme in the tool etc we've come to the conclusion that this is open source and there are no restrictions on re-distributing the program, if we're wrong please let us know so we can give credit where due as searches till now have not found an author.
Operation of the program is simple, simply open up the ltcycfg.exe file and set your latencies accordingly, we've found on systems with audigy cards and nvidia video cards setting the latencies to 64 for both gives the best and smoothest results, if you're unsure of what you're doing DON'T! At least don't blame us for any screw-ups, we're just giving you the tool, what you do with it is up to you.
The idea behind zer0point drivers is to maximize IQ without decreasing performance. In short, these drivers are not for you benchmarking junkies, but rather, they are for the gamers.
