Got a message yesturday while trying to start the game, saying the Nvidia driver was too old (been playing ok for 6 months+). Have a Gigabyte Geforce 1660 super card, Windows10.
Installed new driver v22.214.171.124 (appears to have been released mid June, became manditory from start of Sept). Still not loading, get the CCP watermark, then nothing. When I try to start a second time, says the game is already running.
Might want to check the NVidia website again, for my card, they JUST RELEASED a new driver yesterday! (For Windows 10, 64 bit and Windows 11 only) and it’s improved my graphics quality so much that I may not have to upgrade for another year or so. And I have an OLD card - GeForce 750 TI. I can now run Eve on all high settings except post-processing. It’s like a whole new game to me now. Other games have improved as well. Very happy with NVidia.
I did find an even newer driver, dated 31/8/2021. Installed it, but no change, still hanging after the CCP watermark. I’m running it from Stream. Interestingly No Man’s Sky is still working fine. The ‘GeForce Experience’ utility that installs with both the June and 31 August driver versions can find NMS, but not Eve.
