plugin to multi-GPU architecture in version 2.20.
Multifunction PCI devices are no longer scanned and no longer detected
as multi-GPU devices.

for ForceWare 180.87, 180.88 and 181.00.
Now the server supports user interface skins to conform
requirements of AIB/AIC partners bundling the server with their
products. User interface skinning is based upon proprietary engine,
which was previously used only in commercical RivaTuner technology
based products. User interface skinning usage approach allows
RivaTuner fans community to change the server's appearance
completely and to express themselves in new skins design. Skin
format is completely open, skin compiler and decompiler are
integrated in the server, so please visit techsupport forums to get
more detailed information and help on the skin creation.
Simplified beginner oriented profile settings. Many previously
available power user oriented options, such as per-3D API hooking
options, are now merged into more simple multi-buttons,
e.g. "Application detection level" multi-button.
Improved help system. Now context sensitive help system is
activated by hovering mouse over the control, instead of traditional
right-click and "What's this?" based access in the previous
On-Screen Display preview window greatly simplifies realtime
On-Screen Display position, color and zoom adjustment.
Fully redesigned profiles architecture:
Now pre-created and user profiles are no longer stored into
single file, so user profiles are no longer lost after the server
reinstallation. Please take a note, that the user profiles are
preserved only when the server is reinstalled in the same folder.
Now it is no longer possible to remove critically important
pre-created profiles and pre-created profile settings can be easily
restored due to template based profiles architecture.
Improved screen capture safety. The server no longer crashes on
attempt to capture screenshot in DirectX9 applications without
October 2006 or newer DirectX runtime libraries installed.
Improved product customization features:
In addition to skins and previously available product name
customization feature, bundling partners can also customize
product icon (including system tray icon) and define a link to
own online product help page.
Product customization information is no longer stored in
editable text OEM file, now this information is encoded to
protect the product from illegal modification and distribution
by third parties.
Improved installer and uninstaller:
Improved installation and uninstallation routines for statistics
server's hook libraries.
Now the uninstaller also removes the files installed by 64-bit
signed driver update.
