    I have bought Oblivion today and the game tells me i cant enable HDR with AA.
    This isnt really true, is it?

    Is there a solution for enabling both via driver settings or something?

    I'm 99% sure you need an 8800 series card to get HDR & AA together. Not sure if ATi cards do it either.

    Only X1900, X1800 series ATI cards, or the 8800's can do HDR + AA in its true form. The reason Half Life 2 EP2 can do it on any card, is because it uses a different implimentation of HDR that is not quite as accurate (although imo, it still looks pretty damn good! LOL!)

    i have to agree with you btw. Half lifes episode one and lost coast feature some awesome HDR. Personally i like it much more than Oblivion. I played oblivion with HDR ( no aa ) for a while, and people looked positively radioactive. My hourse in the game looked as if it was glowing, and things started to look very Tron like.

    Half life on the other hand, is more subtle but 10x more realistic. Even now episodes one graphics still sometimes blow me away . The reactor level is simply awesome.

    Yeah, and the simple yet amazing pulsating, uh, anti-matter? core in the middle, wow! :)

    I cant have AA + HDR in oblivion either, tough thats only cuz im running vista and the 8800 drivers aint quite complete yet :D

    Hl2 doesnt do real hdr its like a posh bloom trust me if it did real hdr you couldnt run aa with it.Only the nvidia 8800 cards do hdr and aa at the same time.

    When the control panel is finally working you should be able to force AA there, and then just select HDR for Oblivion and you should get both. But currently you can't force AA through the control panel.

    In your sig I see that you have a 7600GT. On your card, Oblivion wouldn't run faster than 10fps if you enabled AA and HDR together anyway. Don't worry. The game's so beautiful, you don't notice lack of AA at all.

    i guess u should use google, and put words like oblivion, mod/s, enchancement pack, texture pack or so
    somwhere is thread about it, download locations, etc.

    on ur card this game look crappy to me. I saw amazin graphic usin video mods on my previous card, 128mb radeon 9800pro... and - it was optimised to run outside towns in 27-30 fps
    so use google luke :p

    No, Oblivions LOD landscape textures look awful by default. It's not you.

    I play Oblivion with about 70 mods installed. A bunch for improved textures, the rest for gameplay changes/improvements.

    Yes, the lod distance textures are poor, i cant understand why they didnt improve them for the final game, but the woods/cities etc (well anything that 'distant' lol) looks fantastic... oh, and with a little time, u can make the game look like this:
