Yeah, but I don't even have an Ultra option in the launcher. Both it and Radial Blur Quality only go to High. I don't see any setting to change these in the ini either.
If the game has FXAA option in it, that would probably be your best choice. I can't remember where I read an article but I think it was at [H]. They showed how half of the time using CP setting really didn't do anything to help IQ. It all depended upon the game whether or not it actually worked. The problem with CSAA and MSAA is some of the post processing effects won't be anti aliased since they occur after AA has been performed. FXAA on the other hand is done on the final image before it makes it to your screen. Much less performance hit and still the same IQ.

Not exactly the article I wanted to find but here is a quick summary of FXAA. http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...g_technology/1

EDIT: Found the article I was thinking of. It was at Tom's Hardware:

Really good read IMO.
