Release Date: October 20, 2005
I can't get GW to work on my BFG 6800GT OC using this driver. When I load the game, the textures are completely messed up and show up in square or rectangular patches where certain spots of rocks or differnt colored grass should be. You know how when you take an aerial view of the land, and farmland looks like odd patches? Well, everything from the outposts/cities to the instanced zones look like this. When I minimize the game and then enlarge it, it sometimes reverts back to the correct rendering of the textures. Utterly horrible. This happened right after I installed my new 74GB Raptor HDD, so I thought it was either the HDD or my installation of windows...thus, forcing me to spend about 2 nights of sleeping at 5am, uninstalling and reinstalling differnt programs and components...until I finally reverted to the previous NVIDIA driver 78.01, which came out a couple months prior to the 81.85 version. Now everything works fine.
Anyone else experience this texture problem with this specific driver?
