    I only used dispi.inf from j95 at Techinferno, no need to touch the nvdmi.inf, that was for the 355.98 drivers though.... I assume that he is still modding them for 780m
    Can email you the profile if you need though

    and trying to import the whole text file threw an error

    I don't follow why you need the .nip, if you follow Tulius's instructions precisely everything you need for The Witcher 3 and every other game previous to the 355.98 drivers is in the text file I sent you.
    Just to explain the 4th step, which is were I messed up the first time...dont import anything, you are just clearing and then creating a new (fake) witcher 3 profile for the 345.20 drivers so that you have it in the right spot/format when you export/copy/paste/import the new profile in the later steps

    nvidia inspector can only import single profiles in .nip format

    EDIT: well i tried several compatibility bits for dx11 Witcher 3 all of them crash almost immediately after load

    I don't really have a problem with giving you .nip files but that means I have to mess around reinstalling drivers etc every time you get a new game when you can just use the .txt file method and do it yourself. Just follow the instructions rather then trying to import profiles with nvidia inspector.
    If you think Dying light is having sli problems just disable sli then you will know for sure.

    With so many problems of windows 10 and the throttling issue of gpus i dont think it would be a good idea to get the m8 4940mx with dual gtx 880m sli soecially since windows 10 was installed on it from windows 7.

    why would you have to reinstall your drivers every time you export a .nip profile?

    im not really sure what you mean because i tried importing the .txt file you sent me and it threw an error every time and i tried installing newer drivers and exporting them myself and the drivers wouldn't install so the only way i can see of doing it is through the .nip

    dying light isnt running with or without SLI, even after reinstall, just black screen on startup
