DOSBox with GeForce Experience Overlay cause driver to crash

Postby vorob » 2018-2-15 @ 15:28

I’ve got a laptop with GeForce 1070, Windows 10 and latest driver (390.77) I’m also using Nvidia’s overlay to display FPS. Problem is that when I launch DOSBox my video driver crashes. Maybe not from the first attempt, but eventually it will. Take a look at this video:

At first, I launch DOSBox with overlay disabled - no events in windows event viewer. Then I turned on fps display and after DOSBox launch errors start happening. At first I got messages that driver blocked smth, but in the end, my driver crashed.

Happens on different drivers, different DOSBox builds and both on surface output and opengl.

Well, i checked another laptop, also on windows 10 and with gf 1070. Same issue. Driver crash with FPS counter enabled in gf experience.

I also had chat with nvidia support, but is was short: gf experience doesn't list "dosbox game" as supported, so anything can happen.
