However, if someone really, really wants the latest version of Driver Sweeper, then they should get Driver Fusion. It's the same thing, just updated with a new GUI and it also requires .NET Framework 4.something. I can't remember. I just remember learning that while trying to install it just after installing Windows before installing any updates. That's why I recommend Driver Sweeper over Fusion. :)

I know DDU is made just for cleaning graphics drivers, and is updated with most major driver releases. Driver sweeper is obviously more versatile, but I feel safer with the normal AMD/Nvidia uninstall utility + DDU biggrin.gif

Well, I did a clean install as instructed, and installed the latest drivers. Went back into the game, and frankly a tad late for me past 1am, but the simple task of running around solo was giving me a steady 60fps. I even increased to "high" and the lowest I was able to "reach" was 52fps (near the horde Shrine, for those playing Wow, this place always gives super low fps)

I will raid tomorrow and it will be pretty obvious if it was only that. But THANKS for the input. Next would be indeed to try something independant, to know if the card performs as its supposed to. thumb.gif

Hmm. I just tried it. It's not bad. I still like that Driver Sweeper/Fusion tells me what it's going to be removing before doing so.

I am never using DDU ever again. I just started playing Crysis 3 again from the beginning, and I just happened to use DDU not long after I started. Everything was fine, except I had this strange HUD interference that I have never noticed before. It's just like when you're somewhat close to an energy source where the HUD items have kind of a subtle blue animation to them. It's subtle, but it's noticeable and it only affected the HUD items such as the radar and the energy display. I decided to see if it is normal, to see if maybe I've just never noticed it before. I played all the way up to the part when you meet the first two Stalkers in that small dark area. Up to that point, every "cut scene" had a completely normal HUD - no interference. When the cut scene "ended" where you watch the 2 Stalkers take out the 3 C.E.L.L. operatives, the interference came back again and I suddenly decided that it must be a driver problem.

 

Sure enough, it was. I used my Driver Sweeper method this time (as I described above), and now everything is fine. I loaded that checkpoint right when you're about to go through that door to meet your first 2 Stalkers (and watch them take out the C.E.L.L. operatives), but I still had the interference. However, when that cut scene ended where you get to watch those 2 Stalkers take out the C.E.L.L. operatives, my HUD remained free of interference. It's back to normal. Prior to this (after using DDU but not having used Driver Sweeper yet), I still had the HUD interference (I'd call it a special animation of the HUD items) after this cut scene.

 

So yeah, I'm never using DDU ever again, nor am I ever going to recommend it!

 

Just in case you're wondering: I used DDU in Safe Mode, and I did NOT uninstall first because I read that you don't have to. Maybe you do. I don't know. I'm not going to use DDU again to find out though. Not after this experience.

 

 

 

EDIT: OMG. Nevermind. I finally grew a brain and looked at a video on YouTube of someone playing Crysis 3 on the PC, and they have the same problem.

 

Sigh. Wth? I'm glad that I only paid $4.98 for this game. This is some seriously screwed up crap.
