During our regular QA testing recently, we've found significant problems when running Moviestorm using a specific set of nVidia graphics drivers: version 190.38. These drivers were released on July 21st 2009 and are the most current nVidia drivers at the time of writing (August 2009).
Edit - The latest drivers (24th August 2009) exhibit similar problems. See link at bottom of post for more details.
We strongly recommend against upgrading your drivers to version 190.38.
We strongly recommend against upgrading your drivers to version 190.62.
Problems caused by use of these drivers include:
- Character models deforming and warping during scene playback
- Particle emitters (fireplaces, special effects, etc) not working at all
- Terrain bowl around the set displaying as black
I'll try to keep you all updated with any further news (you might want to bookmark this thread) but for the time being, avoid these drivers if you possibly can. If you're looking for previously-released nVidia drivers, nVidia keep an archive of old drivers here.
More information about the 190.38 release on nVidia's forums.
