Default 162.18 and STALKER

The Beta version was fine taking stalker into three figure frame rates, so I
though I'll try the WHQL version, wham! 3fps. It doesn't seem to affect
other games in the same way. GTR2 for instance seems ok.

Anyone else with problems.

How about taking the safety labels off everything, and let the
stupidity-problem solve itself?

He's using XP pro, Forceware 163.11 is Vista only!

He needs to go back to the BETA 162.18. I agree, the WHQL version is
borky somehow. I'm not sure how. It is intermittent. Zero issues with
162.18b!

Yes, that's what I've done and all seems fine again, stalker is peaking at
well over 100fps, bring on Crysis, Doh! that means Vista, possibly ;-)

Thanks for the replies.

Andi.
