I packaged 396.24 for myself because it fixes some graphics bugs in war thunder :D
Does it provide any benefit (or is it even supported) for older cards?

I have a GTX460M, and was able to play WT using the "Medium" preset at high 20s to 30ish fps most of the time prior to the WT 1.77 patch and engine update.

Since then I play on low at around 27 to 35 fps, but can't reliably stay above 20 on Medium.

I'm willing to jump through a few hoops if it will buy me a few more fps. :-)

Last WT update fixes the FPS problem for me, I have a Geforce GTX 750 Ti.

I use the 396.24 driver because it fixes a visual probem I had, a sort of big shadow when I move the view to the ground.

Also if you're a gamer and want to play the new Tomb Raider (Rise of the Tomb Raider) you need the 396.18 or later for proper vulkan support.

As said previously there is a place for requesting update (as long as a justification is given).

The forums are a discussion area.

Absolutely love your work ! :) ;)
As long as you keep packaging and share, I'll stay on Solus and hope the day will come when the devs get the driver issue sorted.

Anything I can do to support...let me know (other than programing, because I absolutely suck at it) ! :D
