NVIDIA 310 Drivers do not like Last Remnant
NVIDIA's latest 310 drivers don't play nicely with The Last Remnant. If I delete the RushEngine.ini from my config directory and start the game the default ini gets copied in and used. The game starts up fine. If I then go to the graphics settings and crank the shadow texture up to max, the game crashes as soon as I try to save settings. It shows up in the event log as an error in one of NVIDIA's modules.

Other settings seem to cause crashes, too, and sometimes result in the game being unable to start. This one was very reliable in crashing the game, though, and reported the faulting module so this is what I reported to NVIDIA.

I reverted back to the 306.23 drivers and now the game runs fine no matter what settings I use.

If you've got the game working with 310 drivers then that's great. I would recommend not touching ANYTHING in the settings, though. My game was working fine with the 310.33 settings, too, until the settings changed. Then I couldn't get any settings to work reliably, even the settings I copied off years ago.

If you are having trouble starting the game and have NVIDIA then I would suggest reverting your drivers. It's not a trivial thing to do but the only alternative is to wait and hope NVIDIA fixes the problem some day.

Thanks to Smerff and others for hints on this!

Shadow texture is the disaster...I think not only NVIDA's 310 has this problem..."MAX" is a tempation....

P.S. Windows Update and the NVIDIA update program will try to update your drivers. You'll need to put a stop to them, at least until this is fixed.

Same problem here. I read on the NVIDIA forum that you can max the settings one by one, and it worked after several tries.
The game still doesn't start every time, but on the flip side, when it does start, I didn't have any crashes.
I'm really getting tired of the stupidities with gpu drivers.

Well, the 313 beta drivers are out. There's no mention about Last Remnant in the release notes but they don't always list every single bug fix. Has anyone installed the drivers?

I installed. Don't work through... Nvidia said that a fix is coming on R316 driver branch.

the 313 beta (even the 310worked) works for me and my zotac gtx 670 (on win8pro 64bit) - played on max settings

Mine was working on max settings, too, until I tried to fiddle with it. Once I touched it a little, I could never get it to work again, even with settings I saved off years ago.

Thanks for that link, ID! 316... so even if we're very lucky we'll still be waiting at least three months. There's going to be a lot of unhappy customers making topics in here.

I think it's coming before that. By the number of this beta driver (313.95) the next will be 316. I'd say 1 month or so...

I hope you're right!

Driver 313.96 just came out. The game now works normally! Cool! And it was fast hehe.

The spirits did it all in one night!?

Confirmed, it works! God bless us, every one! ;)
