The Evolution of PhysX System Software

with 3 comments

Almost any user, who played games utilizing PhysX SDK physics engine (either with GPU acceleration support or software only), must be familiar with PhysX System Software (PSS, also known as PhysX Driver) – special package that includes core DLL libraries for physics engine to operate correctly and some firmware components, and is required for installation regardless of whether you have NVIDIA GPU or not.

This is how it works: PhysX Loader, located in game’s directory, loads corresponding core DLLs of PhysX engine from PSS installation folder. GPU acceleration DLLs (PhysX and CUDA Device Managers) are acquired from PSS distribution, if required. Supplementary libraries (like Character Controller DLL), in comparison, can be stored in local folder.

Note: one must have noticed that many older games store core engine libs locally, but still require a PSS installation.

For the most part, pre-2.8.4 PhysXCore.dll files in game directories are the result of special requirements of certain engines (like UE3) or installers that include unneeded DLLs.

PhysX System Software installation requirement was firstly introduced by Ageia in 2006, and obviously such approach has its own advantages and disadvantages.

PhysX System Software 9.12.0807

with 5 comments

nvidia-physx

New release of PhysX System Software - PSS 9.12.0807 – has been spotted in MSI 306.38 Beta GPU drivers.

Official Release Notes are unknown.

However, we have discovered that .0807 release only contains libraries for PhysX SDK 2.7.x and above – probably, it was done to reduce size of the installer. At the same time, this makes new PSS incompatible with old (2005-2007) PhysX based games.

You can download PSS 9.12.0807 from our server (25 mb, direct links won’t work), Guru3D or mediafire.com

How to restore Ageia PPU support with latest NVIDIA Drivers: Video Guide

without comments

Andrew “MohawkADE” Elliott, our fellow reader and big fan of original Ageia PhysX cards, has prepared a video version of his guide on how to restore PPU support with latest PhysX Drivers.

Ageia PPUs are not recognized by latest PhysX System Software releases, but with a bit of work you will be able to play every game with hardware PhysX acceleration (assuming you have NVIDIA GPU as well), without necessity to reinstall PhysX drivers for each title.

Please note that only certain games (based on PhysX SDK below 2.8.3) are featuring PPU support. Even following this guide, you can't force latest titles like Batman: Arkham City to utilize your PPU.
