Re: re-add software options for other apps/games

I did glance at the recent work-around and wondered if it would be easier to use my old cfg files, which I tried, and it worked until I rebooted, then it did not work. At which point I went on an adventure to get back the old beta 16 drivers. Here is the old beta 16 for 64bit windows: https://1drv.m...

Re: re-add software options for other apps/games

The 'Beta forum' was for pre-release versions of the 10.x software back in 2011-ish. It was closed sometime after the software was officially released.

You know, an improvement on the old beta drivers I'd been using. 3DxWare64SPP_v10-0-11r1165 https://www.3dconnexion.com/supported-software/3dxlabs/3dxlabsapp.html?tx_suga...
