3DMark Vantage Hotfix 1.0.1 Released

Futuremark has released an update for their Windows Vista only 3DMark Vantage that brings the benchmark application up to version 1.0.1. Below are the full hotfix notes. Go ahead and download the hotfix only (15.5MB) or the Full Install (450MB).

Note: The scores are NOT affected by this hotfix, and will remain compatible with build 1.0.0 scores.

Changes:
  • Off-line score viewing is now available in the Advanced Edition.
  • Score save / submit saved options are now available in the Advanced Edition.
  • Ad banners have been removed from all editions.
  • Added a "SEND ERROR" button to error messages; clicking this will send detailed error information to Futuremark for better bug tracking and fixing. No personally identifiable information will be sent or stored.
Fixes:
  • An issue preventing valid serial key entry in some cases has been fixed.
  • An issue causing "boost::filesystem::create_directory" error message after registration has been fixed.
  • Added a check and error message for hardware that is not DX10 capable.
  • Improved detection of supported resolutions so that CPU test minimum requirement (1280x1024) is now taken into account correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where pressin the ESC key during CPU test loading screen, the user would be taken to a score view with score -1.
  • The entire 3DMark Vantage application is now elevated to Administrator rights, rather than only the SystemInfo component. This will ensure more robust SystemInfo and benchmark functionality, and fixes the "pop-behind" elevation dialog.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused "WM_QUIT" error messages.
  • Post-processing scale is now displayed correctly in the UI for the Extreme Preset.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause resolution switches at test runtime.

Does anybody else think 3Dmark06 is more beautiful than Vantage? I liked the forest and the antarctic, and the credits screen. This version is ugly. The character models are low quality as well...

Mullered, how about you pay hundreds of employees, run a heavy traffic website with no revenue. It's $5 for the basic version.
