    Cheers, I didn't know that, I thought you could only force TrSSAA in Riddick.

    Having an issue with the AA code 0x004012C5 with Final Fantasy 14. It has this nasty blur effect added onto it so it makes putting antialiasing kind of pointless since it ruins the image quality. Here are my settings. Would appreciate the help.

    I'm using fullscreen mode.

    I thought another world was an all 2D game?

    It's a 2D game too isn't it?

    It's meant to look pixellated.

    If it has 3D/Polygon environments then downsampling may be your only option

    Well that's certainly not right. There shouldn't be any silly blur, as we already compared a few weeks ago.

    SGSSAA does make a difference. At 4x it's not perfect. Even at 8 it's not entirely 100% perfect. But it's better than nothing and it's better than just the FXAA in game

    One thing I noticed on FFXIV is that at least on my case SGSSAA only works if you use the fullscreen setting and additionally at least with the 12C5 flag it blurs if you use anything other than the default gamma setting of 50.

    So try setting the gamma back to the default, maybe that's the problem.

    "0x004012C1" works for Van Helsing but you have to disable "High Shaders" or the game will crash after the intro video's.

    So, AA fix, fixes Shadow problems with SGSSAA?

    Very interesting. Wonder if it has any effect on DS1&2

    @Bradders684,
    just bought GTX760...couple of days ago. Even with 760 i've got 30FPS in Aarklash while running with sgssaa x4 + 0x000012C1 flag :( ...bummer.

    Just like to let anyone know who may not have tried.

    You can force SGSSAA/OGSSAA/HSSAA in Alpha Prime without any Bits. Nothing quite gets 100% of the aliasing, but is better than the in game FSAA. At the cost of performance of course. (And really though most of the aliasing issues come from the specular component of the lighting. Which you can disable, but looks kind of weird without it http://i.minus.com/iLZmqa20kuaxX.png )

    Only 8xSGSSAA is really worth it. (4x isn't really the best looking and various downsampling methods don't really make a difference)

    Also combining SGSSAA with the in-game FSAA isn't a great idea either. No IQ benefits.

    With 8xSGSSAA @1600x900 I was getting between 50-100FPS. With 8xFSAA I was getting in the neighborhood of 270+.

    No AA http://i.minus.com/ibhPCehySXQatO.png
    8xFSAA http://i.minus.com/iyKjsSnJw0HZv.png
    8xSGSSAA http://i.minus.com/iQ9Zz3TcKEf2N.png (Without Auto LOD bias enabled. With enabled there is no blur basically. These shots are also with Bloom on which creates the blur in the first place but also helps with some minor aliasing)

    Alpha Protocol

    Recommended bit is in Bold (Ignore alternative bit unless applies to you,list only the recommended bit. It is MORE than good enough)
    _________________________

    0x080002C1 - SGSSAA,OGSSAA,OGSSAA-Hybrid(+-SGSSAA)

    Minimum recommended Bit required for HQ SGSSAA, gets 99% of Aliasing.

    Alternative bit for absolutely best quality (if you have crazy insane hardware) 0x080022C1, it gets that last 1% of Aliasing around things like the arms and the neck/ears. (That not even 2x2 downsampling +4xSGSSAA can get) but comes at the cost of some minor UI blur.

    0x00000041 doesn't work with SGSSAA


    Downsampling plus SGSSAA produces some odd results that don't look very good and actually seems to create aliasing (I resampled my 3200x1800 4xSGSSAA shot in a way that looks exactly 1:1 to how it showed up on my monitor. Aliasing and all)

    State of Decay and Marlow Briggs AA flags would be great...

    0x000012C1 works for me with State of Decay as it's the flag used for DX9 Crysis 2. I tested it with 4xMSAA + 4xSGSSAA and it definitely works, although it is very demanding: my framerate drops from a perfect 60 fps to around 40-45 fps and VRAM usage doubles from 680 MB to 1,300 MB.

    Dang they really need to upgrade those UI assets beyond 720p They look pretty bad.

    The game is entirely 2D. It won't happen sorry.
