Thread: AA settings?
July 21st, 2006, 03:40 AM #1
I've read around here about AA settings and I heard it can increase peformance, because i'm sick of getting 25 fps on wolfenstein.
I've already applied highest peformance and set all the low quality settings and filters to lowest. But I still get crappy FPS at times.
I really don't care if my graphics look bad, I just want a steady 76-100 FPS.. as long as its not like pixel (I hate pixel looking NES graphics) but jaggy and choppy are ok.
So what would happen if I changed these AA and anisotropic settings? would it increase peformance maybe?
Also if you have any other tips to help me improve peformance i'd appreciate it..

How the AA and anisotropic settings are right now are probably the best. The other options would turn them on and decrease performance. You can also turn those off in the graphics options of most games.

You problem could be that you are using a fx5200 =)E8400 8.5x500=4250mhz 1.38v 24/7 ( 4.7-4.9ghz for benchs ) /Evga 780i
OCZ PC-6400 5-4-4-15 800mhz 1.9v / Corsair 620hx / 8800gt @ 740/1800/1000 24/7

AA & AF will only go so far with an FX5200. You could consider the alternative of, maybe getting a new card if it bugs you so much.

If you want to make sure that AA & AF are off, then uncheck the "application controlled" tab and force it to always be off.

Ok thanks, I turned off that AA seems to peform better,
And I don't plan on getting a new video card soon, but atleast I have 1.5GB RAM 3.2ghz computer so the FPS is suitable.
Any other tips for making better peformance. Like I said I don't care about quality as long as its not pixel, I just want to kick ass in ET.

Lower the resolution.
An FX5200 would most likely perform best at a resolution below 1024x768, so if you wanna get a lot of fps, try playing at 800x600.
