What happens in this process is that the entire scene gets rendered as a great big texture that is displayed on the screen. Since multisampling doesn't antialias textures, but polygons, any forcing of antialiasing gets lost in the process.

Supersamping *should* work, however.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
