    Only downsampling is and will be filtered. Upscalee will always use nearest point filtering, sorry.

    True, but it would be nice if I didn't have to have a yet another background process running all the time. That and the fact that D3D overrider is only included in Rivatuner, which is no longer made.
    Edit: Plus D3D overrider refuses to start most of the time for me.



    Oh, OK I guess that makes sense. I was trying to stop any program from taking the refresh rate any higher than 60 Hz but I guess that's not the point of the overrider.

    Edit: One thing that would be cool to have with the statistics server is the ability to start and kill exe and bat files on the start and close of applications, with arguments. I use various tools along with some of my games, and for some games, game-specific tools are needed. It would be pointless to keep these running all the time, though. Radeonpro had something like this with it's scripting tool, but I no longer have a radeon card.

    Is it possible to add an option to control the ZeroCore feature on Radeon 7xxx cards? ZeroCore is causing multiple issues, so this could be useful for Radeon 7XXX owners.

    Idea for Logitech LCD keyboard owners:
    Add "Recording" text or icon to Logitech keyboard display, and option to turn off pink circle on screen when recording.

    EDIT: I have just noticed (2.2.0. Beta 14) that you cannot select "Print screen" key as Screen capture hotkey.
    Is that on purpose, or can it be implemented?

    Hi, i'm currently using a notebook with switchable graphic. My problem is that when i switched to integrated GPU or vice versa, i need to restart AB to redetect my GPU.

    My request is that, can you make an option in the tray menu to reinitialize AB without the need of restarting it?

    Plugin support is planned, but already possible to write into OSD via shared memory (Aida64, HWInfo, etc).

    Notebooks are not supported yet (if ever).

    Not really worth mentioning since I know you're probably already working on it, but could use some better support/UI for the Kepler features ;)

    I have no clue if its even possible, but it would be really awesome to see option that will monitor the FPS in games and then down-clock or over-clock the card on the fly, to stay near or at 60 FPS. This will help reduce the power draw , keep the card cooler , and will increase lifespan of the card. Something like on the new GTX 680.

    Anyways , i want to say Thanks! For what you did already guys!

    you have these options already:
    1. via MSI Afterburner -> RTSS -> Options -> Frame limiter: 60

    2. via nVidia Drivers using NVInspector -> Advanced options -> Global Profile -> Frame Limiter -> 60 ( or 59/588 for inpul lag compensation)

    hello.

    do you think if it would be possible to include an overclocking profile for each program or each video game with Afterburner automatically applying the profile when the user launches the program ?

    It does exist for nvidia drivers for instance in the nvidia control panel where you can select general settings and specific settings for each program. That would be great because sometimes I definitely need overclocked frequencies like when I want to play battlefield 3 but for other games that are less demanding, I don't really need that and I'd rather reduce energy consumption. Of course, I already do it manually thanks to kb shortcuts but I think It would be useful.

    thanks.

    A Simple Wish

    Hi,
    Before all else MSI Afterburner is a great app. But I have a simple problem on the "Settings" window layout. Because the "Settings" window so tall and it can't fit to into my screen. I'm using a notebook that is 15,6" and 1366x768 resolution. Therefore i can't see the tab headers and can't change tab to other. Please fix layout on the settings window.
    Thanks a lot

    Hi, I really like MSI afterburner. Especially the recording feature.
    Would it be able to choose the bitrate of the audio recording?
    Because now it records at 3072kbps, which is too much.
    256 AAC would be enough.

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, it is unlikely this will be changed... MSI Afterburner is intended for desktops running MSI graphics solutions. Nootbooks were never in the targeted demographic, and as such, any such solution would be unsupported.

    Hi,

    Is the next version can get overclocking support for AMD Llano integrated graphics?
    With the latest beta version I could overclock my 6620G from 444MHz to 457MHz. Even this little overclock managed measurable difference (+23 points in 3DMark 11 and +234 points in 3DMark2003).
    Unfortunately with the current version I cannot manage higher frequency while the hardware could take lot lot more...
    Believe me, adding this feature you could bring happy time for many people:)

    I think you understand me wrong. I didn't say about notebook graphics. I just want only that the "Settings" window to be a little shorter?

    I understood you. The problem is your notebook's resolution (which is lower than the average desktop) is too low to view the entire window. Since the product is targeted at desktops, I do not foresee a change to its window size in the near future.

    When you check the "apply overclocking at system startup", it always applies the last selected profile during shutdown.

    I'd like an option to select which exact number profile to apply at windows startup. I have several profiles for different games/benches that I load and it will load the wrong profile sometimes.

    This. However I guess it depends on how the game handles the cursor (for example, I can record the cursor just fine on osu!, but I don't think I can see the cursor on Dota 2)
