Omega drivers for my graphics card?
« on: July 04, 2007, 10:01:17 PM »

a friend messed up my drivers by installing nvidia ones and I lost my Omega drivers, and I can't remember what ones I had, can someone tell me what omega drivers I need for my AGP geforce 7600GS?

Thanks.

While i dont use Omega drivers, i would take a guess that you want the Nvidia Omega drivers  ::)

Although i wouldnt advise using them, they havent been updated for about 2 years now

From nvidia.com:
Product Support List Windows XP 32-bit – 94.24

<snip>
GeForce 7300 SE
GeForce 7300 GS
GeForce 7300 GT
GeForce 7500 LE
GeForce 7600 GS
GeForce 7600 GT
GeForce 7800 GS
GeForce 7800 GT
<snip>

This means the 94.24 drivers of either Forceware or whatever flavoured packaging you prefer should be the drivers you're looking for.


The nvidia Omega drivers, being 2 years old, doesn't have any support for the GF7 line of cards, so you'd be better off looking towards other sites offering so-called optimised drivers, like NGO.

Personally, I found that the official nVidia drivers worked the best.

Not for this card, sprites and transparent textures (additive on models and maps) are messed up, and 2 sprites overlaying are rendered as nontransparent.

So what drivers are you using right now? Are you aware that you could probably restore the previous drivers through the device manager, and have you tried doing so?

I'm using the latest NGO customized ones now, with no problems and more fixes than the omega drivers. Thanks guys, feel free to lock this topic admins.
