    You said before you’re trying to track down the patch and that digital jesters went bankrupt. It appears Digital Jesters might have only been the publishers not the developers. I found a 1.2patch but not having the game I could not confirm if it adds PPU support or not can you check?

    The game is defiantly still in development as the French and German sites mention the add-on pack but I couldn’t translate much. The games English site seems to be down

    http://backtogames.de/spiel/bos/ this one shows 2 addon/new games due this year.
    Kylotonn Entertainment is a game studio based in Paris, France. Perhaps someone who can speak French could email there main support line about the PPU patch.

    I managed to confirm the add on has PPU support in the German forums. Still trying to figure out about the first game patch. Hopefully you two or someone else will have more look them me.

    Don’t worry I will not be starting any more threads for a while 3 threads is more then enough. I was going mail Ihateleg directly but I couldnt find his email address in his profile.

    Ill put it this way:

    WE DON'T CARE, the performance we have seen is DIRE and the graphics arn't that GOOD either!! :mad:

    It has the potential, but multi-core CPUs will probably, phase it out. :)

    Unless you can show us PROOF that it gives 40+FPS performance AND good physics, it is a waste of time. (In games that matter...)

    It seems the BOS game was supposed to have support for PhysX but they went the way of the dodo and no longer support the UK version. www.betonsoldier.com as evidence and google for digital jesters.

    There is a patch, but it doesn't apply to adding physx
    http://www.gamershell.com/download_10943.shtml Funilly enough the UK v1.2 patch was the last patch ever posted for the game in September last year!

    I have this: http://www.frogster-interactive.de/news152.html which says something about the physx addition. But it does not say anything about the patch which gives it.

    We need the UK version patch for the Ageia physx addition.

    Anyway, I will continue to try and find out where to get it.

    BTW :Thanks for the links Pottsey. :) (Not that I am an admin or something, but in future try and append these details to existing threads,(where we discussed this initially) instead of creating a new one, so that the admins do not get angry. Especially from creating a thread to gain the attention of two people ;))

    Your statement should read 'I DONT CARE', you dont speak for everybody here.
    I keep seeing people writing about the dissapointment they have that this card doesnt boost fps in games or make graphics better. Please remember the only thing that will boost a games fps by 40 whilst adding new graphics is a new graphics card not a ppu, they weren't built for that and i dont believe ageia ever said they would be. A significant boost in fps (maybe 5-10 or so) would only ever occur in the most cpu limited of environments, this card was made to add physics not fps or new graphics and unfortunately there are no games available with decent physics implementations yet, only **** poor physics effects, a tottally different thing altogether.

    No swearing.
