    when starting uru I see two choices for the nvidia card...NvidiaGeforce DDR(HAL) and NvidiaGeforce DDR(REF)....If I choose REF then the game will not start and gives me a black screen and a frozen cursor, but if I choose HAL then the game runs normally..I have the latest nvidia drivers 45.23 and direct x 9.0b
    What is the difference in these two graphics choices??? The nvidia card is the 256 model from 3 and a half yrs. ago.

    HAL: hardware mode
    REF: software mode

    HAL tends to be better

    If one works and the other doesn't, why worry? At least it's working
