Nvidia PhisX help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am trying to play on some maps on cellfactor revolution but it tells me that i need an agea phisx card or something like that but the problem is that my mother board does not have a phisx card slot so the closest thing that i can get to a phisx card is a nvidia card however i dont want to spend 200 dollars on a decent nvidia card so another solution is to just get a cheaper nvidia card and dedicate it to phisx (nvidia geforce 210 http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=026701) so i am wondering if a dedicated phisx nvidia gpu would work for this game so if anyone has a dedicated phisx nvidia card can you tell me how this goes

http://cellfactor-revolution.en.softonic.com/

PS: i'm pretty sure the first map requires phisx

Does that game even support GPU physx?

Also the long obsolete ageia physx cards (PPU) went into a PCI slot.... (from what I remember).

Can you not use the CPU to run the physx?

I am not sure if this game supports gpu physx.

the ageia physx cards are hard to find and they are like 100 dollars on ebay. I am pretty sure that a geforce 210 can pack more of a punch than one of those cards and is like 40 dollars.

I could not enable the physx option on the game and I noticed that you have 2 nvidia cards so can you please try to dedicate one to physx and try the first map on skrimish and tell me if it works.

also I have attached a image of what the game tells me when i try to play on the first map

Thanks in advance

Cellfactor Revolution was designed around the aging Ageia PPU; it CANNOT use GPU PhysX on modern-day CUDA/PhysX cards.
