0x000000C1 is the best flag for ME3 if you intend to use SGSSAA and it's blur free..
That might be the one I have on (at work so I can't check) and it was jaggy-free.
Anyone try using AO? I used the ME1 flag like I did for ME2 and forced quality AO, but in the opening mission where the reapers attack and you are following around Anderson, I was getting 40-50 only on dual GTX 580's.
I don't know why it was so bad, was it because I was using SGSSAA on top of it? The second I turned off AO I was back to contstant 60 fps. I didn't try performance AO.
I just noticed the flag on the list for mass effect is an SGSSAA flag:
Mass Effect - 0x000010C1
This is different from the driver flag. Does this work better for MSAA/SSAA or just SGSSAA? I've noticed the default flag with MSAA has issues in some lights like the scanning beam when entering the Normandy. It causes a strange halo effect on characters. I've also noticed that both the SMAA and FXAA injectors cause menu lag as well as overlay (hacking minigame and messages) and stuttering for me. Texture aliasing is a terrible crime in this game, is there any working decent performing solution to all this?
SGSSAA is alone killer, and adding AO top of it killer^killer lol.. C1 flag is also the most expensive flag for the game, the less blur the more perf cost.. you may want to use what Ash is using if you can stand blurness, it should be a bit faster..
i personally am playing 2xSGSSAA + QSSA0 @30FPS capped and it is rock solid.. actually i would guess you should be okay if you are using 4xSGSSAA+QSSAO @60FPS.. you may try using FPS limiter with built in driver @50FPS.. SSAO makes difference IQ wise, i would leave it on no matter cost..
Performance AO is really bad, flickers all over and low precision kills the image..
Default in-game AA vs. the AA settings I've listed above.
Truth is though, that pictures don't really do the differences justice.
When in motion, the difference is clear as night and day.
For some reason my system can't handle the 4xMSAA + 4xSGSSAA + QSSAO with the C1 flag for SGSSAA.
What do you think I should change, drop SGSSAA to 2x? I am not at home to try it out.
I guess I could run those MSAA + SSAA combo compatibility modes with quality AO like I did in ME2.
I have "Antialiasing - Gamma Correction" set to "On" in my NVIDIA Control Panel (Global) but when I check nvidiaInspector, Antialiasing Gamma Correction is grayed out and set to "Off". Is this some type of display bug?
Some AO flags may break SLI.. are you sure GPUs usage is normal ? (below 60FPS ~90%).. or are you playing @1440p/1600p ?
Yea "C1"-AA Bits prepare Problems with SLI-Scaling, it needs other SLI-Value, I know the Problem from the ME3-Demo. I found a different SLI Value what fixes this Problem, if you want I can do it it here post later.
AA Bits list at 3DCenter.org has been updated:
If you find anything missing or wrong, please say so.
If something's missing, screenshots for the game showing AA working would be nice.
I've noticed a couple of settings in Nvidia Inspector don't correspond to what the Nvidia control panel says. Can't remember offhand.
Extension Limit was another setting that didn't correspond. For some reason it was On in Inspector but off in Control Panel.
Anyways.. I managed to fix my issue. Went to Control Panel and performed the "Restore Defaults" action. Now all settings correspond AFAIK.
Blaire, this would be much appreciated.
@MfA - GPU usage was fine, on 1920x1200.
adam's venture 3 aa flag?please
Adam's Venture 3: Revelations -
0x28020041 - For MSAA/TrSSAA
0x080000C1 - For SGSSAA/OGSSAA
Bloodline Champions -
0x00001241 - For MSAA/TrSSAA
0x000012C1 - For SGSSAA/OGSSAA
0x000D12C1 - For MSAA+OGSSAA
Seems nothing works.
This link should be added to the OP: http://www.forum-3dcenter.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=490867
Just in case.
Does it need some flags with that? Because SSAA doesn't work for me.
I noticed you haven't posted in the thread since you said this. I was hoping you might have an update. Sorry to bother you - thanks!
Hm, are you using the old 2x2 Supersampling modes(or 1x2/3x3 etc)
OGSSAA(Downsampling by Resolution) works for me.
I'm gonna try the others out
This post shows various bits and SGSSAA , doesn't seem to have much of an effect in this game. Much like Tribes Ascend which doesn't play well with AA, AT ALL. SGSSAA with various bits in T:A have next to no effect for tons of FPS penalties.
It must be Specular/Shader Aliasing. That seems like the only logical reason why modes like TrSSAA and SGSSAA have little effect in games like Tribes:ascend and Syndicate.
Probably another reason why they implemented FXAA in Syndicate.
I'll keep trying.
