Might and Magic Heroes VI
Hello!

Apart from the fact that the game is quite buggy, there is no SLI profile, so the game is running on the primary card only. FPS rates are rather low, 20-30 FPS, and since 580M offers quite a kick, quite bad optimization of the game comes to mind. Have any of you find out a way to run the game in SLI?

Heroes VI crashes and freezes completely my computer with all the latest stable and beta drivers with my GTX470. Problem with nVidia's driver or is it the game itself?

I guess it's the game. It happens to be quite glitchy. Make sure to get the latest 1.1.1 update for the game and the newest drivers.

The game runs near perfect on my setup, just a shame it isn't sli, but then again, runs maxed out anyway.

Good for you!

Those 580M can act funny. E.g. with older drivers I had two games completely unplayable, frame rates around 15-20 and GPU utilization around 100%. Then 285.27 came. Both problematic games out of sudden started to run at 80-120 FPS and the load levels dropped to 30%. Well, 285.27 were the first drivers to be actually dedicated for the card. Weird anyway.

Okay, today I updated to 285.58 and forgot to switch the SLI on after rebooting. Interestingly enough, with SLI off, the game runs perfectly on the primary card only. FPS is 60-70. Very smooth gameplay.

[b]HOWEVER[/b], I switched the SLI back on and with SLI enabled, the game again works horribly. FPS are even worse than before, 15-20. There is undeniably a driver issue that needs to be addressed.

You are right and I had the same problem. Bloody SLI setup just isn't working for this game! I'm on GTX 570 and I get like 20-30FPS so someone needs to work on the drivers certainly. I can play Witcher 2 full settings at 2560 x 1600 with my setup but not HOMM6!

So yeah... i had to make an account to bump this topic, because this thing drives me mad with every beta release of new drivers without any sign of fix. Could you finally do something about this? You know it is annoying to turn on and off SLI in drivers all the time. And ofcourse turning SLI off and on totally shuffle my desktop icons, it is really enjoyable to replace them every day.

Please NVIDIA do something, we cant play =(

gtx480 sli at 2560x1440 runs 40fps with sli disabled 20fps with it enabled and blue screens after ~10-40min with sli enabled which is about the only thing that has made this system blue screen in the last few years of use

Is this being completely ignored? I dont see any changes in beta drivers...

The game started to work okay for me after last beta drivers + last game update, that is, SLI is still unavailable but the game does not slow down. Stable 60 fps w/ v-sync on on a single 580M. I am okay with that.
