XG77.76 Forceware Released

This is a very nice driver set, IMO, the best we have had in a long time.

from AOAfiles :

This is the 77.76 TweaksRUs.com Xtreme-G modified Forceware driver set. This is about the most noticeable performance improvement I have ever seen from a modded driver. Counterstrike Source, is amazing, performance is clearly better, and some of the 3D effects look incredible, particularly lighting in dark areas. Far Cry is a work of art, with all textures looking crisp and flawless, and lighting dramatic but realistic. There are no video bugs in this set, and these are the most stable drivers in many, many months. If you have an Nvidia 6 series or FX card, these are must have drivers. This could be just what you are looking for to push your system to the next level!

This is honestly the best set I have had in a very long time. Easily the best since the 77.62s. The performance is brilliant, thanks to the type 3 XG driver mods, and the quality is just perfect. I got owned several times staring at my awp, admiring it under the light in CS:S. Far Cry looks fluid and realistic.

If you have a Geforce 6 series, 7 series, or even an FX series, these are the drivers to have. Brilliant gaming, simply brilliant.

Click Here To Download the TweaksRUs.com Xtreme-G 77.76 Driver Set From AOAFiles

Highly Recommended!

Please follow the correct installation procedures when changing Nvidia drivers, as it will give you the best possible performance, and minimise bugs and problems.

Once again,

Before you install these drivers YOU MUST, do the uninstall properly to get the MOST benefit from them. This means downloading Driver Cleaner Pro, from drivercleaner.net.

Step 1: Go into add/remove programs, and UNINSTALL ALL Nvidia display drivers
Step 2: Reboot, into SAFE mode
Step 3: Run Driver Cleaner Pro, and clean ALL Nvidia, Nvidia stereo, and Nvidia WDM drivers.
Step 4: Reboot into windows normally, and install the XG77.76 Driver set
Step 5: Reboot into windows and enjoy your new drivers!

Get DriverCleaner Pro from www.drivercleaner.net

This will give you THE BEST performance and stability possible.

When you get time can someone change the sticky too plz

Problem with XG77.76

We found a problem and had to recall the XG 77.76 for now. If you already installed them we have instructions to make things right HERE

Daishi has all the tweaked files, so until he shows up we have to wait.

Dumb question...
Is there an idiot's guide to the improvements from the standard 77.76 drivers?

If you download these drivers, you may find yourself inable to set and force a refresh rate higher than 60hz. To fix that, you can do what I do with every driver release.

Go to this link http://www.gotfrag.com/portal/files/81/ and download "Reforce"

Reforce allows you to set a permanent refresh rate for any given resolution that forces your computer to run at that no matter what it feels like. This easily solves the problem, and is a better method than the Nvidia panel anyway.

That driver cleaner is great i got to remove some old ATI rubbish left over from my old 9250 aswell. Also used cab cleaner and what's more window is starting up faster and using less ram

I installed the drivers and im not having any issues and CS seems to be running a bit smoother. I remember the older versions i was using had seperate settings for OpenGL though.......must of just been me.

You and me both mate.

They do not work for Vista. Hold on though Dave, I can sort them out in 20 mins, after the 64 bit drivers.

lol Ive been working on this files site for almost the last 24 hours grabbing files and testing them, as some Vista stuff has some serious, OS terminal problems. 2 of the 4 drivers have killed Vista installs for me. Experimental drivers + experimental OS + Microsoft = Hell.
