    I have been using the Nvidia OPS (Optimal Playable Settings) for some time now and they are great. glad to see
    they are taking it up a notch. If they ,except the in-game settings, also add some of those settings.ini customizations it will be close to perfect.

    *Beep Boop* Detecting Optimal Settings
    - SET TO LOW
    ...
    *Turn everything up*

    Oh look, game still runs at 40-60 FPS, no change in temperature.
    Hopefully this program will be better than current graphic setting detectors.
     
  4. Dont most pc games have something already built in to detect the best settings on your pc? Is this supposed to be better or just another option?
     
  5. "80% of PC gamers use the default settings". What the hell is wrong with people.

    That's still quite a crude method, it's just a case of the game checking what graphics card you have then using the specified settings stored for use with said card - which is always very conservative and far below the graphical settings you can actually get with a bit of trial and error.
     
  7. I see this used for older graphic cards ... and really can't see the use if you have the latest/greatest in ure rig, will be useless as all setting should be on/max by default oO
     
  8. is this nvidia service already applied by blizzard's diablo 2 game executable called d2vidtst.exe?
     
  9. This will make it easier for nubs to point the finger when shiz don't work right. lol
