Don't be afraid of Frank.  He just barks a bunch. lol

Good luck getting the rig running stable.  Don't hesitate to ask more questions if you get them. :)

Hey,

Downloaded the GTL demo but it won't run.  Now I get a message about StarForce drivers no liking my version of Windows (Vista, so go figure).  I'm guessing that is going to be an issue with the full version as well.  Is there a workaround?

Licking the windows on the short bus,
Hooch

So, just Google it?  Or is it more complicated?

Yes if you google "starforce vista" it will get you to the right place.  There are some instructions there on how to go about doing it.  I wish I knew an easier answer, but I can't recall exactly what I did to get mine working.

Thanks, Marcus!  No sweat on the easier part.  I'll work through it because I really really really want to try out GTL!

Besides, I rather work it out now, before all the good stuff comes in.  Because once it does, I'm gonna be very busy unlocking all those cars!

Drokk, I might need to talk to you!  I've turned down my shadows and reflections, but I haven't stepped down the DirectX.  And I'm absolutely clueless on the underclocking the GPU and GFX!

Me no savvy how work magic picture box with many button!  Acutally, I'm not that bad, but I prefer things I can use a mashy and spanner on.

Cheers,
Hooch


well turning the dx level down is simple enough. just run the setup.exe for whatever game your running and next where you set the resolution is DX level.
if its set to default its running dx9. try 8 and compare your temps.
another thing with Nvidia cards is to run http://www.nhancer.com/ this will let you tweak and fine tune your card.
As for underclocking its the last thing to try if all else fails, ive not run Nvidia cards for a while now so one of our other Tweaky guys will step up no doubt, but i think Detonator drivers let you alter the GPU clock and Memory clock speeds with sliders in the control panel. If not you can use RivaTuner to do so.

Thanks again for the warm welcome and all of your help.  Now, I'm going to go worry about what impressions Stein mentioned I was making (and whether I should be afraid of Stein, himself).


yer alright in my book...  but if yer afraid.. i'd be foolish not to abuse it eh?  :rotfl:


nah.. i wont.. you'll do allright m8ey, hope to teach you some tricks some times, east- or  west coast or centrally located sir?


One more day of sickleave after this one and i'll be right as rein still a wreck... :dunno:  gonna try and work friday, if that doesn't work i'll have the whole weekend to torment myself... ehr.. wait.. or was ... ah nevermind..


Dont mind me for now Hooch... cant think straight.. not even in curves either...

I'll be barking up another tree within notime!   :?:
