nHancer v2.4.5 is out - Advanced Control Panel and Profile Editor for nVidia cards


Recommended Posts

Martin released today a new version of nHancer, an advanced Control Panel and Profile Editor for nVidia cards targeted to gamers and NVIDIA enthusiasts. Don't be confused with the name as LaptopVideo2Go also offers a tool called Enhancer which is unique, too, but a website-driven automatic INF creator.

For those new to modding and to get a clue what this NVIDIA Game Profile Enhancement tool "nHancer" is about, here's a short introduction:

nVidia's own control panel is not always very intuitive to use. Especially when looking at 3D rendering settings, it can be very cryptic and difficult to navigate. Even the new control panel introduced with the 9x.xx line of Forceware drivers wasn't a real improvements for these problems.

nHancer is a tool to improve the usage of these features. Both normal and advanced users should find nHancer to be a big step forward.

Additionally, nVidia drivers include a unique feature, that allows them to define profiles for every game, which control various image quality, compatibility and optimization aspects. But in the standard control panel, this feature is even more cryptic to use, so most people never bothered about it.

There will be another release soon to support the new features of the upcoming drivers.

This new version will work with Forceware 18x.xx series (and earlier releases) and has the following changes since v2.4.2:

  • Added the French translation made by QuarkZ. Thanks a lot QuarkZ!
  • Added detection for new chips.
  • Improved the application scanner, some applications not found previously are now detected correctly.
  • nHancer can be used while it?s scanning for applications. The result of the last scan is also saved.
  • When resizing nHancer?s window, the profile list will now automatically scale with the window while the description pane keeps its vertical size. Note than you can still resize the description pane freely by grapping the pane divider just above the description pane.
  • Bugfix: Closing nHancer right after it had been started could result in a 30 second delay until the process actually died.
  • Small bugfixes.

See Readme file for the detailed Changelog/ReleaseNotes.

The latest build is always available @ www.nHancer.com.

A side question. Why does this app take up so much memory? In my case nHancer occupies 20 - 50 MB or RAM.

When could we expect 185.xx support?

Site says it supports more recent stuff. The post here should probably be updated to reflect that.

Hello Guys,

is the tool also suitable for a mobile GPU?

(I have a FG 9600M GT 512M DDR3 running DOX 181.22)

Thanks in advance!

This is a misunderstanding. The tool is not compatible with your GPU, but with certain (most) drivers. The driver has be compatible with your GPU.

Most NVIDIA drivers though actually support all GPUs (UDA aka Unified Driver Architecture) but sometimes the INF limits it from using the driver on certain GPUs. That's why you use a modified INF which resolves this limitation.

So yes, nHancer will support your 9600M as long as you have a driver installed which recognizes your GPU.
