PhysX System Software 9.11.1107

with 4 comments

nvidia-physx

NVIDIA has uploaded new 9.11.1107 version of PhysX System Software.

Official description does not provide any details about new features in this release (only support for “500-series GPUs” was mentioned – this is not new), but we have spotted updated .dlls (.41) for PhysX SDK 2.8.3 and additional PhysXCore.dll for SDK 2.8.4.6 in a separate folder. Apparently, there are some other minor bugfixes.

Also, PSS 9.11.1107 is included in new 285.79 Beta GPU Drivers (upd: actually, mentioned, but not included).

PhysX System Software 9.11.1107 is available for download from NVIDIA website.

Upd: According to several user reports, this PSS is working fine with Hybrid PhysX and mod 1.05ff.

PhysX System Software 9.11.0621 has emerged

with 8 comments

nvidia-physx

Since PhysX SDK was made driverless (SDK 2.8.4 and above) we have thought that PhysX System Software has become a history – latest version, 9.10.0514 was released about 10 month ago.

However, our fellow reader Stefan has provided us today with a link to a new PhysX System Software 9.11.0621, that he has extracted from DELL OEM drivers.

Update: Also, 9.11.0621 PSS is now provided officially with 285.27 GPU Drivers

Update #3: PhysX System Software 9.11.1107

We have not found anything particular new (no new/updated PhysX engine .dlls, only PhysXDevice and cudart* files are dated June 21 2011) in this release and since this driver is not fully offical – we recommend to install and/or use it at your own risk.

Update: Changes & fixed issues in this release

  • Corrects Installer bugs for numerous locales

You can download PhysX System Software 9.11.0621 from our server (26 mb, virustotal report)

How to restore PPU support with latest PhysX Drivers

with 5 comments

Owners of original Ageia PhysX cards are not in love these days – PPUs are not only not recognized by PhysX SDK 2.8.3/8.4, but even not supported by more or less recent PhysX System Software.

However, our reader Andrew “MohawkADE” Elliott has discovered a way (through drivers mixing, registry editing and some alchemy) to re-enable PPU support even with newest PhysX Drivers.

ASUS Ageia PhysX PPU with latest PSSIn this case you’re be able to kept your PPU in the system, benifit from hardware acceleration in PPU PhysX games and, potentially, in CPU PhysX titles, or even pair your PPU with dedicated Nvidia GPU.

Head over to our forums for further instructions.

PhysX SDK 2.8.4: say goodbye to System Software

with 39 comments

nvidia-physx

Newest PhysX SDK 2.8.4.2 is ready for public beta testing – this is last and most stable current generation SDK, next one is going to be 3.0.

In addition, SDK 2.8.4. will be used as basis for upcoming APEX 1.0 toolset.

[18.08.10] Update: Release notes were supplemented with “driverless” mode description.

[19.08.10] Update #2: bug in the PhysXLoader code, that was preventing it from loading the local DLLs in 2.8.4, is now fixed. Replace the PhysXLoader.dll and PhysXLoader64.dll in your SDK installation with the new files from the archive “2.8.4_Loader_patch.rar“, found in the 2.8.4 folder on the developer download site.

[20.08.10] Update #3: PhysX SDK 2.8.4.3 with fixed PhysXLoader .dlls and included (previously missing) PhysXDevice.dll – is ready.

Currently, binary builds are available for 32- and 64-bit PC Windows, and Xbox 360

RELEASE NOTES:

General

  • Removed PhysX Loader source code from source distribution. THIS WILL BE REVERTED FOR RELEASE. PhysXLoader code will be supplied to source licensees.
  • Discontinued the Training Programs.
  • Added source code of NxTetra (tet-maker) utility to source distribution.
  • Removed spin waits from sample code.
  • Added API to permit the user to specify the order in which compartments are simulated.
  • Added compression limits to cloth.
  • Cloth simulation no longer performs prediction for kinematic rigid bodies for improved interaction behavior.
  • New driverless loader option for PC CPU distribution. In 2.8.4, application developers must ship PhysXCore.dll, PhysXCooking.dll, the cudarXX_XX_X.dll and physxdevice.dll with the application ‘locally’, in the directory where the .exe is located:

1. The application requests PhysXCore or PhysXCooking (v 2.8.4) from the PhysXLoader.

2. PhysXLoader searches for another DLL called ‘PhysXUpdateLoader’.

3. If PhysXUpdateLoader is not found, PhysXLoader will load the local PhysXCore or PhysXCooking.

4. If PhysXUpdateLoader is found, it looks for an updated replacement for the PhysXCore or PhysXCooking dlls.

5. If PhysXUpdateLoader cannot find the specified replacement DLL, PhysXLoader will load the local PhysXCore or PhysXCooking dlls.

6. If PhysXUpdateLoader can find the replacement DLLs, these will be loaded in place of the local PhysCore or PhysXCooking dlls.

7. The net result is that the developer has more control over the game installation process, doesn't have to worry about shipping a large System Software with the game, doesn't have to worry that the player will break his System Software somehow, etc.
