View Full Version : NV40's IQ issue in Farcry related to AA setting?

06-02-04, 02:49 AM
One friend of mine just did a few tests concerning NV40 and Farcry, he found that once set AA to medium or above in the game, some artifacts in Farcry will be gone:
all shots were taken on 6800Ultra with 61.11 driver and Farcry is patched to 1.1

set AA to low in Farcry:

set AA to medium:

force 9800 ID through 3d analyer, set AA to none:

for 9800 ID, set AA to low:

As you can see, either force 9800 ID or set AA to medium+ can remove the artifact in this particular scene. BTW, force higher precision through 3d analyzer doesn't remove the artifact, it seems not to be rendering precision related.

Anyone knows in which level are these 2 shots taken? We'll do further investigation:

Didn't Farcry and 61.11 have issues?

61.11 disabled AA set in CP when playing farcry, but the guy set AA in the game, there should be no problem.

117561 [TWIMTBP]NV38/40,WinXP: Corruption of some weapons in Far Cry.

117474 [TWIMTBP]NV40,WinXP: Fog broke in Far Cry.

Only moron would use AA through the game, but not through ATI or NVIDIA Display Control Panel...
