Windows update broke DFBHD graphics settings
 
Latest Windows 10 update installed nVIDIA's 388 drivers on my GeForce 640 despite me configuring winupdate as best as I could to specifically not do that. I reinstalled the 368 driver I prefer ('cause MechCommander 2 looks great with the 368 drivers), and now some arcane struggle between the anti-aliasing and the bit-depth is making the gamma adjustment in DFBHD fail. Some amount of adjusting these settings and restarting the game manages to get it working again, but I've yet to detect a pattern.

Comanche 4 has always had a similar problem where anti-aliasing is greyed out and I had to start C4, click a menu point, then click back a step to get the gamma adjustment to activate, okay, sure, but after the update, C4 won't start if the bit-depth is 16, however, strangely, the C4 mod I made will.

So, anybody have a clue?



Edit: Did a bit of googling. Found a troubleshooter thing called wushowhide.diagcab. Downloaded it to find it's already on my HD. Run it to hide drivers from Windows Update. Got my fingers crossed!

I can't believe how many times I have to relearn some lessons...

I went through all the executables in all my NovaLogic games and mods and checked the compatibility settings. A lot of them were completely deactivated. Important ones have 'Run as Administrator' activated on an all-user level. A good number of them had the full screen optimization deactivated, as I wanted. So I tried activating the Windows XP (SP2) compatibility, This seems to be helping the games. Will test the mission editors later.

Completely useless information: I installed the Battlefield 2 demo a while ago. I've modded it heavily to my taste. The vsync has always refused to work, until this morning when I activated some compatibilty settings.

Apparently, some lessons I'm just doomed to have to relearn. Over and over again. Forever.

Sry a litle late but from memory you can tweak/force settings in dfv.cfg and using commandline arguments for windows serveonly etc.on the exe.

It's all here somewhere on the forums, we all sorted the tweaks out over time...
