wow… Just when you finally discover how amazing filters could be for msfs… disabling them it is then. Also, it’s a known issue from many drivers version, and never solved.

It’s so annoying as filters used to work for me but since the recent updates I’m unable to use them within MSFS now, had to use Reshade

Does this driver eliminate the crashing issues when using dx12 in MSFS that the .41 driver introduced?

Test it, then you know it.


Got the crash immediately on load instead of ~an hour in, so it seems to be worse. Rolling back to .29 again.


Nope. I’ve just crashed 30 mins into a flight. Back to Mass Effect it is for me then I guess… sigh*

Here is the popular CLEANED version of the Nvidia driver 531.61

Using the 531.61 on my 2070 Super with the Nvidia freestyle filters and no problems so far. Maybe it’s just a problem with a particular filter or certain Nvidia GPU’s?

Good card. I got the same one.
I’m able to get a pretty steady 45fps in the Sim.

I crash with rtx 4090 same error from last driver.

I’ve got a 4090 and have the crash, regardless of which filter is active.


Think I’ll stick with 531.29. Seems to be fine for me and I absolutely couldn’t manage without filters. The sim is far to yellow and warm without them. Needs a hint of blue tint to make it look more natural.


i9 13900K, RTX 3080 2K - no issues.

Maybe it’s the newer GPU’s, not had a problem with the 2070 yet.

I have rtx 4090 when active filter crash

So in summary - do not download this latest driver then? 4090 here and I use Nvidia filters to fix the awful over exposure in this sim.

Did you have issues with the .41 driver, or have you never had any issues?

CTD sadly for me. I12700f and gtx3070ti 32gig mem
