Bad Nvidia Drivers - September 22, 2015

As you can see by the frame rate tests a few days ago in this blog I have been having extremely slow frame rates with Windows 7 64-bit Nvidia drivers.

If you revert your drivers to version 353.62 you will again get good frame rates in Swat 3. If you play the games Metal Gear Solid 5, Mad Max, Ashes of Singularity or Killing Floor 2 you won't want to revert since they contain "game-ready" drivers.

Nvidia Drivers Compatible with Swat 3:

355.98 Sept 22, 2015 - bad frame rate
355.82 August 31, 2015 - bad frame rate
355.60 August 13, 2015 - bad frame rate
353.62 July 29, 2015 - good
353.30 June 22, 2015 - good
353.06 May 31, 2015 - good
352.86 May 18, 2015 - good
350.12 April 13, 2015 - good
347.88 March 17, 2015 - good
347.52 February 10, 2015 - good
347.25 January 22, 2015 - good
347.09 - bad frame rate
344.75 - bad frame rate
344.48 - bad frame rate
344.11 - good

The only way we can get a fixed driver is if enough people report this issue.  Please show Nvidia you care about the classic older DirectDraw and 16-bit colour games.  You can help us by posting in the Nvida forums or by filling out a short bug report: 

Feedback thread for Windows 7 & 8: 
Nvidia feedback thread for driver version 355.82

Driver Bug report (they call it a survey): 
Nvidia Driver Bug Report

Tell them that you are having extreme frame rate drops on the menus of Swat 3 and other older games that use Direct Draw and 16-bit colour depth.  Please also mention the last good drivers were 353.62.
