    I don't mess much with nvidia inspector because I mostly game on my AMD 6870 and my nvidia cards are not fast enough for exotic aa-modes, but other users have also reported to be very happy with the 8xSGSS + SMAA hybrid.
    If you want the maximum quality and have a card fast enough for SGSS then it's probably the best solution. You could even combine it with downsampling if you have a monster GPU.

    Was going to give this a go, but got a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, which doesn't have a Scroll_lock key, so is there any way to change it from that ?

    yes,. u can change the key urself if u need to..

    go to the injector.ini, open it..

    find this:
    now go here:
    and search the key number u want to use..Then u just edit the injector.ini line u need..As example..
    i just edited teh 145 to 45, wich represents the INSERT key..

    easy as pie :)

    @ Wanny..if u have some time, im gonna post all my comparsions here for Ceejay.dk, so he might can add it to teh first post..

    When im home i am going to post em here...

    Hey CeeJay, I have been using your tool since it was called InjectSMAAmod. I have a suggestion for your future releases regarding your default settings.

    I find myself turning off LumaSharpen or at least reducing it in most games that I play, as its embellishing is highly dependent on the art style of the game and personal preference. For example I love it in League of Legends at default strength, can't stand it in Guild Wars 2 at all, and in Borderlands 2 I reduce it to 0.5.

    Conversely I absolutely love Vibrance and use it in everything, including MPC-HC. Games look so bland without it!!!

    Based on my experiences if I were you I would reduce LumaSharpen's default strength or disable it by default - my thinking behind this is because LumaSharpen may turn off users who try your mod without reading the notes and write it off because it makes their game look all weird, when all they want is to get rid of jaggies. You even write yourself that it doesn't anti-alias edges properly in its current state!

    Conversely I suggest enabling Vibrance by default :D

    This would not affect power users who will tweak every setting for every game individually, while greatly empowering the new user. I came looking for a cheap AA solution and discovered the existence and joys of post-process filters myself :)

    Thanks for all your hard work :)

    Many thanks, this is a very cool little tool.

    Has anyone tested this on BF3 and modified the configuration for the game?
    Would be nice to get that config :)

    @CeeJay.dk
    Would it be possible to add an contrast or curves shader?
    In games like BF3 I really want to alter the contrast of the image.

    Would be great. :)

    Curves are planned for version 1.3 - see the roadmap in one of the first posts in this thread.

    I too find 1.0 to be too much in several games, but originally chose 1.0 so people wouldn't complain that they couldn't see any difference.

    But you may be right .. using a milder default setting could be a good idea and so will enabling Vibrance per default (at maybe 0.2 or 0.3 ?)

    What does everyone else think?

    What should I put as the default settings? Share your opinions!
