This is a general post to those using nVidia gfx cards and having graphic problems (such as the family tree and the hint systems bugs). It is a problem seen only with the newest (non-beta) driver 61.77. You can either rollback your drivers to a previous version OR your can install some newer beta drivers. For information on these drivers please refer to this link! (http://forums.guildofgreeters.com/index.php?showtopic=5502&view=findpost&p=72718)

Does this only work for those with XP? I have 98SE.

Umm. I downloaded it and it made my game look horrible! Can I put it back the way it was, or do I need to adjust some settings?

I am using the 66.81 beta drivers from guru3d.com (http://www.guru3d.com/). They work great on my system and they improved performance with some of my other games as well.

Now I can finally see all the Hints for Myst 4. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Is there a fix for Mac systems where there is no obvious driver to tweak/change?

Do the FreeBSD drivers work for OSX? If so there's a recent August 13th update for them from nVidia.

Otherwise... Mac users might be interested in this: http://xlr8yourmac.com/

... Let us know what works or helps out.

Installing nvidia 66.72 WHQL qualified drivers fixed the glitches I was seeing in Myst 4,including the family tree wall not lighting up (Geforce 6800 GT 256mb), these drivers seem very solid you might give them a try,heres a direct link: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=881 and some pics I took with 66.72 (click to enlarge):

OK, third time this week I install an update to Nvidia's drivers for my GeForce FX5200. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Uninstalled all previous versions and installed 66.81. Got Directx 9.0c. Everything is set. I'm just waiting for the game now and praying to God I won't have any problems.

I installed the 66.81 beta drivers and they have fixed all display problems I was experiencing. Revelation plays beautifully.

Well if you got Win 98 the best you can do is 61.76, which I already got. Has anyone gotten this to work? Do I need win xp to get this game to work?

Game does not list Win98 on the back, it starts at WinMe.

Game lists win 98SE, which is what I have, sorry for the confusion. Does yours not say win 98SE?

My BFG 6800 GT OC seemed to work OK with 61.77 Drivers but I did notice the light go out on the family tree. Installed 66.81's and Myst 4 was OK but all kinds of problems showed up in Far Cry and 3DMark 05 so I then installed 66.72's and all is well again. 66.81's are not ready for prime time yet. And yes I used Driver Cleaner.

Ope, guess it does say SE. Either way you said Win98 not Win98SE *nitpicks so he can win*.

Sorry about that.

Hmm, make sure you have the latest version of DirectX? And it never hurts to download the WinMe drivers and try them under Win98SE just for kicks.

Rev works great with an older nVidea driver that doesn't work that well with Uru.
