Physx 9.11.1111 issue
So far Physx 9.11.1111 will not work with rock of ages, only physx game I have tested at the moment so if any others rear their head, ill update.

GPU=GTX 460 768mb
Graphics Driver=295.51
Testing Physx=9.11.1111
Stable Physx=9.10.0513 (use mainly because of the cursed crusade)

I can confirm that the newest PhysX drivers also break Rock of Ages.

Not sure what else they break, but I'm rolling back, zzz.

Hmm, Id have to try Alice with these over here to confirm, also still have to try The Cursed Crusade since steam just updated that game.

It's broken Alice: Madness Returns for me, too. And everything else running under the Unreal Engine 3. All of it. Uninstall just PhysX and they all work again. I think that counts as a fairly major bug.

EDIT: I should point out that rolling back to the previous (290) driver release and using the 1107 version of PhysX included in that works fine. For me, that 1111 version of PhysX is definitely the cause.

you don't have to roll back to the 290 drivers, just change out the 9.11.1111 drivers, but yes, seriously seriously bugged

Yes, you're right, of course. As I said it's just the PhysX that's the issue.

Ok, my Alice Madness also crashes, and after a LONG time of investigating, I drew the same conclusion... it's the PhysX... Here's what I did: I suggest that you guys download the previous driver from nvidia. then, download driver sweeper, and clear away anything that is NVIDIA Display and Nvidia PhysX. Then simply reinstall the older driver. I suggest doing this in Safe Mode, because it might drive you crazy with the automatic driver install from Windows 7 or anything of the sort. If doing this is too hard, then feel free and change the settings for Alice to LOW PhysX until they release a new driver.

What's embarassing is that the release notes for PhysX v9.11.1111 specifically mention improvements for Alice 2 (a.k.a Alice: Madness Returns)! Clearly no-one bothered to actually test these improvements on the game!!! /thumbsdown.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsdown:' />

Someone reported over on Guru3D [url=http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4244884&postcount=451]*here*[/url] that the latest v295.51 beta drivers were repacked on 6th February 2012 with a newer version of PhysX, v9.12.0203, presumably to fix the issues with v9.11.1111 and games such as Alice: Madness Returns?

However, NVIDIA have not yet released this version of PhysX as a separate download which seems an odd oversight as many people will not be aware that these graphics drivers contain an updated file.
