    By hiccups, do you mean like a jittery stutter every few frames?

    Getting that and it's really starting to wind me up, don't feel like playing till I resolve it.

    Not sure if nvidia updated the game profile but I am now able to force AA through nvcp without the need of inspector. I've tested it with 296.10, 301.24 and 301.42 drivers and they can all now override AA settings

    How? Override still doesn't work for me and I'm on 301.42.

    right, I've just opened inspector on the diablo 3 profile, and AA compatibility flag lists "0x004412C1 (Diablo III)". same flag I used before, now named "Diablo III". I'm on 301.42.

    In nVidia Inspector, there is a setting called "Antialiasing - Line gamma". Can anyone explain what this setting does? I've never seen it before and I cannot find anything on google.

    Only thing I can think of is that I'm using the profile already in the drivers and did not add it myself. This is a clean install of windows, 301.42 drivers, with the latest profiles via nvidia update utility. I do not have inspector on my system yet and AA is definitely being forced. I can see it visually and vram usage has gone from 500 to well over 1300mb using 8xAA and 2x trssaa.


    Edit- nvm, applejack confirmed they have added the ability via profile:) thanks

    I believe that is an OpenGL-only setting, possibly the same or related to the Global/games profiles 'AA - Gamma Correction' setting (since that is also OpenGL-only). I think the setting enhances anti-aliasing by adjusting the gamma levels of the blended areas to smooth out apparent jagginess, something like that.

    If Gamma correction is opengl only, can you explain this article?

    @ heymian - I'm only recalling what I'd read somewhere and that is why I don't enable AA - Gamma Correction except for OpenGL games. I cannot remember where I read it though.

    *EDIT*
    Found it here: http://www.tweakguides.com/NVFORCE_6.html

    Quote: " Antialiasing - Gamma Correction: This setting only works on 7800 series graphics cards or newer, and if set to On improves color quality and further improves the reduction in jaggedness for a slight peformance hit. I recommend it be enabled unless you want the absolute fastest performance. It also appears to only apply to OpenGL games. See 'Antialiasing - Setting' further below for more details of what Antialiasing does."

    That's Gamma Correction though but I suspect the other setting is OpenGL-only as well.

    That's just a tooltip error which nvidia is too lazy to correct. There have been discussions about it over at nvidia forums.

    Have you guys tried AA compatibility of 0x00400080 (instead of 0x004412C1) with the latest Forceware v304.48 ?

    3D Center Forum guys suggests 0x00400080 in their AA compatibility thread.

    This post talks about it If anyone speaks German please translate this short post for us. I've tried with Google translator but I still could not understand the post.

    It just says that using the 0x00400080 might be an alternative .
    If using it your are missing the blue shapes on some mouseovers and the red
    Shapes on the enemy units what may result in loosing
    overview in battles. But it it shall work without any problem.
    That is the translation. Trust me i am german ;)
