The dog that ate Shader Model 3 ...

The other day i noticed after updating NVIDIA Forceware, that Shader Model 3 was not available with my 8800GTX.

After investigating the registry it appeared the following key caused the issue:


Changing value to 1 or deleting the key cured the problem.

There are a bunch of other "magic numbers" in nvd3dumx.dll, if someone knows their meanings, drop me a note.
And thanks to NVIDIA devs for obfuscating that stuff  :NON:
