Recent PhysX drivers 9.10.0222 and 197.xx NV GPU drivers are mostly incompatible with 1.02 GenL Mod for Hybrid PhysX systems (witch hunt, another round) – using this drivers set will results in Metro 2033 crashes, abnormal FluidMark behaviour and performance problems in other PhysX games.
However, user Containforum, known for his Hybrid PhysX installation guide and Catalyst 10.2 extended display fix, has come out with a solution – he created a “patch”, that resolves performance problems (at least for FluidMark) and allows you to use Hybrid PhysX without necessity to extend display.
Update: You can download containforum’s fix 1.02 here (25 mb). GenL mod must be applied firstly.
Update #2: comment from GenL
Result can’t be called a “patch” anyway. This package contains several unmodified (unpatched) files from PhysX SS v9.09.1112 and v9.10.0129. While this can’t be a proper solution for newer versions of PhysX SS, i’m surprised it worked for people
Update #3: Extended display fix only.
UPDATE: Hybrid PhysX mod 1.03 released – with timebomb fix and lastest drivers support.
It’s recommended to use it with 196.34 drivers and latest PhysX System Software.
Please use this post or comment at youtube to report if this fix is working with other GPU PhysX games, or any problems you will encounter.
