    Running on: 2012 retina Macbook Pro

    The Secret World (Bootcamp Windows 7):
    Tells me to update nvidia graphics driver; it is up to date and only the beta drivers are more advanced; beta drivers install cannot find hardware.

    Starts up but the pointer click is way offset from cursor. Example: if I move my cursor all the way to the left of the screen a button in the middle highlights, as if my cursor was over it.

    Alice Madness Returns (Bootcamp Windows 7):
    Crashes every time after the first cut scene, before the game starts. Must terminate program.

    Cool bug in rage: (after the new mac os x update to "enhance" graphics)
    Doesn't happen when loading new worlds (like going inside a place) but in this instance, it is quite cool and a very non cliche take on the gaming world.
    (This has nothing to do with my woes in bootcamp, which were happening before this update. Although, not that I know the update was responsible for this.)

    NVIDIA DRIVER FIX

    I had this same problem with The Secret World. Fix it by reading this thread and following ErwinCouman's advice:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4032760?start=15&tstart=0

    Do NOT download the nvidia beta 304.79 driver through the links he posted because they will lead to the international version and the four lines you need to add to the file won't work with that one. Download the one that ill_gb posted on page 2 of the thread for the English version:

    http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/46279

    Follow Erwincouman's directions in his second post in the thread by navigating to the DisplayDriver folder and copying and adding his lines to the nv_disp.inf (Set Up) file. Here is a link to an image of where he put the two lines:

    https://github.com/erwincoumans/experiments/commit/9902b90e77407cfbce10396f11daef23d49b7be3

    NOTE: I noticed when I was adding his first line of code that he indicated 3 places where they should go: on the first line under each of the 3 Nvidia devices sections. I actually found 4 in my file and made sure the line was added to all 4 sections. I also added his second line exactly where he put it in the strings section, which is near the bottom of the file.

    CURSOR FIX
    This will address the issue where it seems like your mouse isn't pointing where it is showing up on the screen:
    1. Right click on the The Secret World shortcut
    2. Select "Properties"
    3. Click the "Compatibility" tab
    4. Check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"
    5. Click "Ok"
    6. Enjoy

    You're welcome!

    Enjoy playing TSW. I'm rolling a pistols/blades Dragon and it's a lot of fun!
