After the patch the game asks for a driver update on my card. I already running the latest version.
Please fix. patches are meant to make things better. Now I can t even log in the game.
There is an option like "don't warn until I install new drivers" within the bottom of the warning windows. I got the warning, too, and have the latest driver (as per nvidia driver search) installed. I ignored it and the game had no problem with the card/drivers (yesterday).
btw: "reinstall the driver" is not really that helpful an answer, as with latest driver installed and warning pops after game update, it's the game's fault, not the driver's !
There have been a large number of reported performance problems (especially in outdoor areas) with our engine and the NVIDIA drivers starting with the 191.xx version of drivers, and these were resolved in the 196.21 driver release, which we highly recommend using. As some of you may have noticed, this driver is not yet released for the mobile NVIDIA chipsets, so our client confusingly asks you to upgrade when the drivers may not be available for your card. The majority of the performance issues with these drivers were reported on desktop boards, so it's possible that the mobile drivers did not contain the same bug, so it should be safe to ignore this message for now. We will likely update the code to not complain about these specific driver versions on mobile cards to prevent this confusion.
I've been having a somewhat reverse sort of problem...I'm still running the 190.62 drivers, and STO doesn't actually complain about it at all...but each time I've tried loading and running the 196.21 drivers they cause my computer to crash. Bluescreens, just random turning off, etc. But rolling back to the 190.62 set....fixes it. I have no issues with these drivers, but issues with the new ones.
Obviously my card is insane.
And yet, STO doesn't tell me I'm using outdated drivers or anything....thoughts?
I'm using an nVidia 9800 GT, with Windows Vista 32-bit.
