    Hi guys.
    Some drivers reported runtime errors since last nvidia driver update this week.
    I didnt update it and everything fine by now.
    They say even with full re-install of rf2 and downgrade on nvidia driver wont solve the problem.
    One guy said that after driver update rfactor was on a huge resolution far higher than what his monitor can handle. But even after he changed error persist.
    This happens when starting launcher. Laucher wont start.
    Any sugestion apart full Windows intalation?

    Hey Valter,

    interesting bug. Haven't heard that before to be honest.
    Personaly I don't have that problem, My laptop runs on NVidea and I updated it this week. rF2 runs fine on it (Windows8).
    My race rig uses an ATI card and Windows 7 Ultimate.
    I am sure many others use Nvidea cards, so maybe they can help you if the experienced the same bug.
    Good luck with it, hopefully something that will be solved quickly!

    Updated here and no problems, and I have little better FPS. I updated nVidia and re-installed clean rF2 B300.

    I am going to switch from ATI to NVidia probably today, so will see if there are issues with the latest drivers :).

    using 327.23 no issues at all.:thumbsup:
    did have a few issues with the beta drivers
    ive had the Runtime errors across all the driving sims a couple of month ago so i dont think its only RF2.
    i used the driver cleaner and that did not solve the issue.
    i also had black screen whilst driving,
    when back at the desktop it said the Nvidia driver had recovered for a serious error.
    after more attempts of reinstalls the problem got worse.
    End result was could not choose graphic option in the configs unless i removed the d3d9.dll
    then all was ok.. in the end i did a complete reinstall of the system.
    touch wood as of last month all running sweet as a nut :)

    I heard of issues with the previous revision of drivers in quite a few games so I'm on 3 month old drivers. Anyone having any issues with the latest set?

    I have the latest driver and no problems at all at the moment for me, but didn't had troubles with the previous either.
