Nvidia Inspector

Recommended Posts

I seem to be having a problem with Nvidia Inspector. In short, it is not allowing me to save any changes. I can change options, but when I apply the changes, leave, and then come back....those changes have not been saved. Has anyone else experienced this? I have never had a problem like this in the past with Nvidia Inspector, so I am baffled as to why it is doing it.... :blink:

I have the latest drivers from Nvidia and made changes yesterday and hit Apply Changes and the changes are still there.  I just changed the settings again to make sure and NI is working for me.

 

Best regards,

What ARE the latest NVidia Inspector drivers?

Jim,

 

I let Nvidia install my drivers using GeForce Experience. I have found that my NI setting don't appear to get changed using this method.

Same problem here.  Changed the frame rate limiter from 30 fps to off.  Then applied the changes.  Closed NI and opened it again.  Back to 30 fps.

I am also finding strange things with Win 10 and NI, seems FSX just ignores settings..although NI does not loose them... I am sure it is to do with the Win DWM..

 

Thanks

If we change or roll back a driver, we should also start a fresh profile, or the settings might not work.

 

What I do is use the NVidia GPU Control Panel, Manage 3D Settings, select FSX (or Prepar3D), press the "Restore" button and "Apply". Next I set "aniso mode 16x" and press "Apply", this is simply to help create a fresh NI profile. If we now go into NI there is a new FSX profile we can select and set our desired values. We can start this process by applying Restore to the Global Settings, if we want to create all new profiles. Usually it's best to start fresh with each version of driver or NI.

I notice that the CHANGE.txt file indicates that "Nvidia Inspector now requires all admin rights" (this was version 1.9.7.2 Beta and up). Could this be the source of the problem? I have tried "running as administrator", but that does not work either. Is there a Windows 7 setting I can temporarily change to gain full access?

 

EDIT: I have three "Undefined" settings at the bottom of the list. They are all set as "0x00000001 (Base Profile)". Are they supposed to be there?

Thanks Steve,

 

I have tried many different approaches creating new profiles re installs of both NIN Nvidia drivers and finally FSX SE but alas no go just will not take them...the 1/2 synch in particular now seems broken...you can set this in NI then try unlimited which I never use always lock to 30 and FSX just ignores and tries to produce 120 fps...so it just does not seem to work.

 

Funny this I think started with Win 7 I noticed a issue then...I wonder if Nividia have been fiddling with the drivers...

 

Who knows...not sure if it is any better in P 3 d but if it the case I will get the version 3 when out...but the in the meantime.. I am parking the flight sim.

 

All the best

Hi Mark, yes certainly seems to be funny behaviour, does NI elevate privileges when you run it?

I seriously consider using **only** the Nvidia Control Panel for all settings, and give up using NI.

Hi Steve,

 

Not sure but I can set AA in the sim and all is fine...remove do a new NI profile set AA and FSX is full of jaggies!

 

The worse issue is the v synch panning is smooth them judder judder judder smooth.. And the more complex aircraft the worse it becomes..all locked at 30 in sim..

 

All my tests thus far have been with default aircraft and airports...in all the years I have had f s x or f s x SE I have never had this issue.. There does appear to be an issue with v synch wether MS or NVidia has tweaked I do not know..

 

The only way to stop the judder discovered by accident and trying anything is to run old FSX or SE in DX 10 preview all is smooth? Add in the fixer and back to judder..

 

Hence I have run out of ideas and patience....so walking away from it for a while...

 

All the best

My problem is that I can't set SGSS AA at all. That was never a problem before (on this PC), so I am baffled as to why it will not work now. All of the other settings are fine.

Do you mean you can't make the transparency SGSS AA setting stick or do you mean the setting does not make a visual difference. All working fine here, or at least I've not found anything broken. Maybe a driver and profile refresh will get it going.

I mean that I can't make the SGSS AA selection stick. If I click on "apply changes", leave Nvidia Inspector, and then load it again, the changes have not been made. In fact, I can't make changes to any of the settings.

I wrote about this problem months ago and received many responses. They just couldn't believe it wasn't working. Well, it doesn't and I gave up trying.

OK Chris, got you, sounds like permissions...when you run NI does it pop up the UAC dialog to elevate privileges?

Share this post

can try "Run as Admin", but it doesn't necessarily produce required permissions, give it a go...

Can try another user, create a new user, and NI should popup the UAC when you run it...
