Ok, so apparently you're supposed to go into the nVidia control panel, and activate the option for your ambient occlusion supported game, World of Warcraft in my case. But apparently I cannot get it to work, no matter what settings I try.
I'm using a 9800GTX+ with the latest official drivers 185.85.
Has anyone else been having a similar issue with one of their supposedly AO supported games? I figure there are enough people around here that know as much or more about computers as I do, and hopefully we can bash our heads together and figure it out.

I know, but I posted here in on the off chance that someone would know, seeing as how several people that frequent these forums have a higher level of computer knowledge than I do. I've been getting nothing from any of the nVidia forums, either.
Have you been able to get the feature to work properly with your card?

I knew that it wasn't working because I saw no difference in visuals at all and no framerate drop.
I was finally able to get it work on the Source engine games (Half-Life 2, TF2, CSource) by downloading nHancer and using that instead of the normal nVidia control panel(which is garbage anyway, don't know why I kept trying to use it). It still doesn't work in World of Warcraft, but I'm not too worried about that, as I don't need a 20 FPS hit for raiding...
It certainly breathes a little more life into the Source engine games, though!
