    This is why I'll stick to nvidia for life. AA is the most important thing to have in games for me these days. Jaggies straight up ruin visuals =\

    CCC doesn't have great AA options, but you should check out RadeonPro - it's like NvidiaInspector for Radeon cards, but better.

    Over the years I've owned both Nvidia and ATI/AMD cards and I can't say that one brand have been consistently better than the other.

    My latest card is an Radeon HD 6870 which I got because my Geforce 8800GT died on me due to the 8xxx series solder problem (I've since then resurrected the card by baking it in the oven - this reflowed the card and made it work again)

    My card history:
    a Tseng card > Matrox Millenium > Nvidia Riva TNT (awesome card) > Nvidia TNT2 M64 (meh) > ATI 9700 (Awesome card!) > Nvidia 8800GT (great card until it died .. then not so great) > AMD Radeon HD 6870 (Very good card - hasn't let me down yet)

    And that just the upgrade history for my main pc's
    I've had several other cards and still do, just not in my main gaming pc's.

    @Maken Hey brother como estas?! Me dan ganas de jugar el DS2 otra vez. Estan buenos tus settings.

    Finally I got AA working through CCC or Radeonpro (I always use it).

    I dont know if there is a restriction in the size of shots but I ll resize them if needed. I love SweetFX (WIP) :nerd:

    I had four ATI cards but I had problems with the drivers. V_sync not work, the problem of switching 2d and 3d. Aspect ratio does not work ... many problems. I had a 4830(Win XP=Very Good), 4870 2x(Win XP=Good), 5850(Win 7=many problems)

    No luck with Far Cry 3

    Having issues, searching this thread hasn't found any fixes that work for me.

    Steam Version FC3 1.03
    Nvidia 310.70
    Windows 8 x64 - GTX 680 - 2500k

    2x .dll's and injector.ini copied to bin, rest installed in Main Dir. Full access to directory. Launcher set to offline.

    Game cannot be loaded directly be the .exe's. If I do, Ubi Launcher asks me for cd key, which doesn't work. Game must be loaded via Steam in order to recognize key apparently.

    Attempting to load the game results in the splash'n'crash to desktop. Tried safe mode, no dice. Changed all settings in the .txt to 0, still no boot.

    If I'm missing something obvious, sorry. I'd be happy to hear if someone with a similar setup is having any luck.

    Thanks for that. Upon inspection of that file, the error holding me up is as follows.

    I'm a little surprised about the D3D11 lines. I have dx9 selected in the game settings. I'm wondering if Steam defaults to the dx11 exe. Trying not to find a way to force the dx9 exe. Wish I could just launch it directly :(

    mook in docs\my games\far cry 3\GamerProfile.xml
    UseD3D11="0"

    if it doesn't do the trick

    you can try renaming
    farcry3_d3d11.exe > farcry3_d3d11.exe.old
    copy farcry3.exe > copyed_farcry3.exe
    rename copyed_farcry3.exe farcry3_d3d11.exe

    Awesome suggestions. Not sure why I hadn't tried that. Unfortunately some funny business is going on.

    GamerProfile.xml was already at "UseD3D11=0"
    Changing the file names did not work. I even removed the dx11 exe from the folder (renamed) and it booted to launcher. Doing the same with the dx9 exe did not. This tells me Steam is loading the proper exe. Unfortunately the log.log is offering some confusing language.

    Really appreciate your help. Kind of thinking it's going to be a driver issue, or Windows 8 x64 compatibility.

    huh. what's the trick? when i put the sweetfx files in the base directory (with Stalker-COP.exe), sweetfx doesnt work. When I put the files in the BIN folder (with exEngine.exe) the game just crashes on load.

    also, this game seems to have some terrible LOD issues. yick. looks pretty awful for how slow it runs.

    The trick is Radeonpro, I run SweetFX on all my games through it.

    Superb tool for AMD users.

    Well I know it's possible without that because Marcel was doing it back on page 92. Or maybe that was just for the original stalker. These half-assed DX11 games seem to have problems with SweetFX.

    How does SweetFX work with RadeonPro anyways? CeeJay said it's like nvidia inspector (setting AA mods, AF, LOD, etc). But you can't really use SweetFX with inspector.

    We had a similar issus with one of the RCRN users for Skyrim. Believed to be relative to windows 8 directX handling the custom dll from our injector.
    Check out the successful workaround posted in this thread.
    It might not be relative in your case, but certainly worth a shot.
    Hope this helps!

    Woot! This appears to be what finally worked. It's strange though, I messed with a bunch of things because I couldn't really tell the difference in pressing ScrLk at first.

    Installed the package you directed me to.
    turned off FRAPS
    Oddly enough, ended up with all the SweetFX files in the bin folder, none in the Far Cry 3 folder.
    Working great!

    What an awesome community here, you've all been incredibly helpful. Thanks again for everyone's input.

    *edit* ok, a little further testing I've found that FRAPS does indeed stop SweetFX from working. The game will boot however.

    Also, most of what I've been reading has said that the ubi launcher needs to be offline. I've found that I was able to be online just fine and even played a multiplayer match with SweetFX working and toggling on/off as normal.

    Hey guys, I wanted to get some feedback on my SweetFX config WIP.
    I want to note, I prefer sligtly increased contrast and sharper images. Also, Im usining higher sharpening since forcing AA through driver makes sniper scope crossairs disappear, and have FXAA set at 2 in xml. I also want to note I'm using Starac's Texture mod which has it's skybox affects.

    EDIT: sorry- used my dropbox for these images, but the excessive traffic caused dropbox to sever the links. Ill update these on new sever when I get home tonight.
    UPDATE: pics avail again. Sorry about that

    The sharpening is making your aliasing stick out like a soar thumb. What are you forcing? The vines in that 5th image look particularly bad. When you use FXAA, I believe it causes white outlines to appear sometimes. Sharpening seems to turn that effect up to 11.

    Other than that, I can't tell a huge difference from the default game without seeing a comparison.

    I don't have that config anymore. I took down my SweetFX stuff from my site a while ago due to SOE threatening to ban people for using it. By CeeJay convinced me that maybe that was a rash decision. Anyways, I've re-uploaded my current config. I believe it's similar. I had HDR enabled in those screenshots and higher values for "Lift" to offset the darkness. If this kills your FPS too much, disable Bloom.
