nVidia FPS Fix 0.3 – Released

From Wombat778 comes an interesting fix for all owner of nVidia graphic cards, especially in the 8800 model range. His nVidia FPS Fix solves an issue with the way that these cards allocate memory for vertex buffers.

If youΒ΄re using a nVidia card, this fix should give you a considerable performance boost, simply copy the d3d9.dll in your rFactor root folder – No other changes required.

Just like the HDR plugin, this fix should work with any gMotor2 based simulation such as GTR2, GTR Evolution or even Turismo Carretera. If it works for you in any sim, please leave a comment and let others know πŸ™‚

Important: This fix may cause lock-ups on some systems so make sure to backup the original dll file. It won’t work along with the TV Style plugin for rFactor.

  • tclark

    work really well in rfactor
    got about 30+ fps
    and i have a 8600 gt
    nice work
    good job

  • GeraArg

    With a 8800GT:
    rFactor improved the performance of a 30/35%
    Turismo Carretera 45/50% (150/160 fps passage of nearly 300 All option full, 48 cars visible 😯 😯 😯 )
    GTR2 20/25%
    Later I will try to GT Legends.
    Someone attempt in the offline version of GTR Evo?, It would be very good for the team this Simbin aware of this fix; so that it can include in an upcoming patch; Rob if you contact them, tell them about this fix πŸ˜›

    Sorry for my poor english 😳 😳

  • hypertek

    i installed it, but now my enb (hdr -style plug in) no longer works =(

  • speedstar

    Thanks. This worked very good for me in Rfactor(8800GTS). I may be wrong but I noticed a slight drop in FPS with GTR2. Thank you very much for the great improvement with Rfactor!

    gained 30 fps in rF ❗

    I haven’t got FRAPS installed yet as I’ve literally just rebuilt my PC but this seems to work for me on offline and online GTR Evolution. Running with a full grid max shadows and things are smooth (vsync on) barely any noticable stuttering at Porto even at the start. Running 8800GT on XP Pro SP2 with an OC’d Q6600. I’ll also test it on Vista 64 bit as I have dual boot.

    hypertek: rename your “HDR” dll to d3d9_2.dll and then put the fps fix in. the d3d9.dll fps fix loads d3d9_2.dll when it loads. then you get the bloom plugin.

    Why are people calling it a HDR plugin anyway ? Its nowhere near high dynamic ranging. Its a simple bloom. Totally different.

  • DeDios

    personally i can’t use this..my rF it crashes.. πŸ™

    my specs:
    Intel Quad Q6600
    Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX 768mb ddr
    4GB ram
    Windows XP

  • Ragster

    Will this work for other game or just isi based ones?/

  • JacobSharp

    Would really appreciate if someone here can host this file other then rapidshare as I have problem with it, how abour mediafire. thanks ahead.

  • morning_wood

    might work with GRiD and DiRT, as both of these have a “trainer” that generates d3d9.dll

    not tested in rF, no fps gain in GTR2 w/8400GD oc33%

  • amgsport

    Gained 40-60FPS in rFactor 😯

    it works great with hdr plug in, amazing full grid 22 online NP.

    thank you for sharing

  • Raikku

    Can somebody make similar for ATI-users(although i plan to change back to Nvidia).

  • DW

    This assumes ATI have the same issue with the way that these cards allocate memory for vertex buffers. I’d stay with ATI – much better IQ especially with GMotor2 titles.

  • Humpfester

    I installed this into GTR2, Race’07 and GTL and did see a significant increase in the frame rate in both GTR2 and GTL, With increases up to 50 fps but, in Race’07 there was a decrease and I’m using two BFG OC’D 9600GT’s With all the eye candy turned up, This is a really good add-on and I would like to host this on my web page, with your permission and share it with other Nvidia card owners. Thank you.
