Finally, these drivers fixed my BC2 flickering problem that had made the game unplayable for me.

Edit: Btw, these did not show up in the Nvidia Updat app even though I had set it to show beta drivers.

So why can I choose to see beta drivers when they won't even show up? Yawn, I am tempted to remove Nvidia Update because it is easier to just check the website and I can get new drivers faster anyway. POS application.

Well it does mention in the release notes that they worked on that very update.
What are you referring to? Flickering in BC2 or Nvidia Update?
If flickering, then yes, I noticed it but the relnotes only talked about GTX 480. I didn't mention it in OP (should have) but I have a GTX 285.

If Nvidia Update, where in relnotes?

I was talking about the auto updater part. Though looking at it again, I may have misread that part in the release notes.

Yeah I decided not to install it as it's Nvidia software and that generally means POS.

Need only look at the current control panel or that Ntune steaming pile of dung.

Software aside, the actual drivers seem fine so far.

I seriously hope this one fixes the scaling issues.

Size of the drivers these days. Gah. ~175mb? Damn it!

Seems like the scaling issue problem with the last live release is fixed.

By the way anyone who's still paying attention to this thread, some seriously bad problems with these drivers causing BSOD due to bad hooks to the kernel.
