304.30 had blue tint for me
304.32 fixed the blue tint.
Problem is 304.32 resulted in <20fps for HoN while 302.17 is ~= 40fps
304 has (or had if 304.37 is good) some nasty performance regressions.
I really wanted to try fxaa since it should give a nice performance boost when aa is use
mmm ok this is odd...
I can't seem to enable FXAA with the 304.37 driver & 304.37 nv-settings
was able to with 304.32 ... gets in some silly pseudo-radiobutton mode...
--edit-- ahh I see now, and the fact the behaviour now kinda makes sense explains why it might have had issues last time
still trash... 20fps...
well it crashed to 4fps but it seems fxaa overriding apps isn't like in windows, you actually have to disable aa in the application as well.
upto 30fps, need to see how stable it is, msaa would result in 40fps crashing to 20 in a big fight
I also have this issue sometimes the performance is fine but X is using 90% cpu ...
The best workaround is just to disable composition for video playback there is an option which turn off composition on fullscreen.
But I'm using just the "alt+shift+F12" shortcut if I play a video. It's kind of annoying if you don't watch a fullscreen video and have to disable composition...
@all: stop feeding teh [strikeout]uid313[/strikeout]troll
Regarding X stability: it's the same as on W7, as in, it's as rock solid as the apps you use, I'm not sure a WDM driver restart is such a fun thing to have in the end.

Also there instances where fxaa actually provides better visual results as well as being faster. check out the white papers and results.
MSAA has better anti-aliasing during motion (which is what you see the most of in every game, unless you're playing solitaire or something)
but FXAA has benefits in that it will anti-alias the entire screen and not just edges... so shaders get anti-aliased, too
for games that dont have FXAA built-in, forcing FXAA will also anti-alias text, interfaces, and other stuff you probably dont want it to and since linux nvidia-settings doesn't provide per-app options (like on windows) it means the desktop get AA applied to it
Here is a screenshot of HoN using fxaa at a nice high res.
--edit forum has downsized it, so open in a browser
You're taking this the wrong way. This is just so people who don't know what they're doing and want their graphics to work, having followed umpteen internet tutorials and installed both drivers, get the better working ones of the bunch instead of having nouveau interfere. It's also an option that's not on by default, so something suggests to me that someone else will be turning it on.
