    Nice work- first tweak program that enables aniso under 29.60- but...

    I played a little with it, because I wanted to see, if GF4 Cards still break down with aniso in D3D- so I used 3DM2001se patch- well the newest.
    I chose only the fillrate test- becasue thats the one that measures the fillrate :D

    With no FSAA and Bilinear filtereing, I got 986 MTexel/s in single texturing, 2243 in Multitexturing- fine.
    So I switched on Aniso- and with 16tap I got 610.7/610.7- OK nV still did not fix it- but now the but: id made no difference if I chose 16tap, 32tap or 64tap- the fillrates were allways the same.

    So you seem to have found a way to force aniso , but the degree of aniso filterring seems to be allways the same- regardless of 16/32/64 setting.

    Some points to the FSAA settings:

    The value 8 settings produce the exact same fillrates like the 2X setting.

    6X and value 7 ( what you call 4X 9tap) produce the same fillrates and they are omly slightly below NoFSAA:

    No FSAA: 986( single Text) and 2244( Multitext) with bilinear filtereing

    Value 7 and 6X: 980 and 2211 MTexels/s

    I repeated these measures several times, because I thought it was only an artifact, but Value 7 and 6X is slightly slower then NoFSaa.

    So my questions: what level of aniso is activated, can you fix it to chose different levels? And Value 8 seems to be 2x FSAA, Value 7 and 6X are only slightly slower then no FSAA.

    Keep on the good job, hope I could hepl fixing some bugs.

    Oh I use WinXP-home , nv29.60, the newest nVhardpage on a Athlon XP 1700+, Epox 8k3a+ and a gainward TI4200-128MB XP 650 @ 300 core/540mem.

    Thanx for reporting this bugs. I working on fix for AA errors.
    Problems with Anisotropic filtering maybe are in detonators 29.60. It look like high levels of anisotropic filtering dont work. I using to testing Aniso GeForce2 - this card do only 16-tap. But today I buy GeForce4 MX 440 - this card do 32 and 64-tap aniso and I start testing.

    If you wont help me with fixing some bugs, just contact me via mail:
