Found this on a hardware site and thought it may help some people:"If you have the hacked corporate version of Windows XP Professional, you cannot install the service pack, in turn, these drivers will not install correctly (No USB 2 or DMA on IDE). We are hoping to maybe have a patch up soon but for the time being, we will just have to wait:.

actually you can get around the service pack by downloading the entire service pack not from microsoft. However unless you got a good connection you will be have a long download since its about 150megs. I actually use a tool called big fix which gets all the service pack updates without asking for info about your copy of xp. That way i only download the service pack stuff i need and none of the crap. Oh and there is a slight improvement in performance with this driver since i tested it out with serious sam second encounter and got better slightly better framerate than last time.

"Be careful! You cannot un-install this without re-installing Windows, and with XP this might not be as easy it could be. You could always roll back to a version of XP without DirectX 9 -- in face we've had to do this following some "critical updates" earlier this month. Sheesh.Also remember that few hardware products support DirectX 9, yet.A source close to Microsoft's plans said that the download is really still a beta release candidate and not even RC1, and there will be more releases in the coming months""Further, there does not yet seem to be a public SDK. Apparently Phil Taylor, in charge of the DirectX 9 programme at Microsoft recently left.He said: "Anyone who uses this except on a spare machine is nuts.""A source close to Microsoft's plans said that the download is really still a beta release candidate and not even RC1, and there will be more releases in the coming months"Typical MicroSoft. Pls Linux. Kick it's ass.....

These drivers suckAll these new features, and they are buggy as hell.Neocron runs, but looks like hell between the texture warping and flashy screen garbage. I'm with that other guy.. 30.82 are way way better. Nvidia has its head up its ass with ATI pouncing in their G4 series of video cards. I guess they are trying to squeeze extra performance outta their eqp to make up for the lack of performance in their hardware.Anyone with 30.82, stick with those, they run great, and no video errors.
