Correct, PhysX is Nvidia technology, it wont run on ATI Cards, and it wont work if your using ATI as your default GPU, what this patch does is rewrite the program to allow you to run it on an Nvidia GPU even though you have an ATI Card as the default card so you can use your ATI Card, and Nvidia Card as PhysX

Windows Vista does not allow for multi drivers of the same type. Thus it won't work.

Yes it can. As long as you have the PCIe space, you can do it. I've seen a few folks running 2 HD5770's + GT220 on a P55 board.

That's the official game list. They update as soon as games are announced with PhysX abilities.

Yes, if you got an old Ageia/BFG/Asus PPU Unit.

****. The rumors were true... fcking Nvidia.

Had this working perfectly with my HD5970 and 9500GT... I took the nvidia card out for a while to test out my PSU thought it was causing issues.. so didn't use the nvidia card for physx in some months now.

Recently bought and installed Metro 2033 on Steam. Threw in the 9500GT which was working perfectly before, as tested by Fluidmark (Hardware Physx, yay!)

Well, this time around I loaded up Fluidmark and it said Software Physx no matter what I did. I re-installed from scratch, in safe-mode. Patched it w/ the Physx mod. Booted up again, ran into some issues with the mobo not recognizing etc. and the monitor not extending properly.

Finally got it working, hardware Physx w/ my HD5970! Woohoo!

Loaded up Metro 2033, said it was installing some Physx package. After that was done, Metro 2033 should have popped up and started loading but I got this error... "Physxloader.dll was not found" please re-install or some bullcrap.

Low and behold, went into Fluidmark again and Software Physx was enabled again!!! ARGHHH! Sneaky little f**kers over at Nvidia! ***!

Used the 195.62 drivers successfully until this happened. What a load of crap.

Thanks

physxdevice.dll
physxcore.dll

Uninstall the physX package and reinstall the package you wish to use.
I looked for anything Physx related in the Metro 2033 install, which appears to do similar.. installing another Physx package. There was an app in there for Physx 10.**.**** . Which I deleted so hopefully Steam won't try to automatically access that next time.

Now, to get Hardware Physx working again...

What do you know?

Had to re-install from scratch as I had feared.

Better yet, Metro 2033 will CTD as soon as it is launched now! Due to... who knows what. Does Metro 2033 NEED a more recent Physx pack to use its "Advanced Physx" ?

Ah, probably the wrong forum for this, but a heads up to anyone that doesn't want to spend "hours" setting this up again correctly.

EDIT:

After updating to 9.10.0222 ( the one Metro 2033 has to install,) Fluidmark now shows Software Physx. Reverting back to the latest 9.9.**** version, Hardware Physx works again.

****e, I really want to play Metro 2033, but I want Physx working with it even more!

Anybody been able to fix this situation up and get Physx working in Metro 2033?

Cheers

- I have nowhere else to ask, as I don't think this is officially allowed and I fear the new Physx version has done just that. Disabled Physx for us ATI users once again
