yesterday I reinstalled Chronicles of riddick game I got with my card, tried to start it up and it crashed repeatedly with an error to the effect that it couldn't find ogl 1.3 compatible driver, luckily I had picked up rivatuner which allow me to set 1.3 compatibility, then it worked.

my question is who is/should be ultimately responsible for ensuring that driver issues like this don't happen, the game dev or the driver providers, because I remembered that nvidia once provided a way of customizing ogl/directx which they don't seem to anymore.

the reason I ask is that my have rivatuner let alone knowing I could adjust ogl with it was a "chance" sort of thing
