Beggers Court Extreme Quality 4xAA/8xAF 1280x960
Sunken City Extreme Quality 4xAA/8xAF 1280x960
The Commonlands Extreme Quality 4xAA/8xAF 1280x960
The Commonlands FPS jumps up to 40(or roughly up by 10 in most cases) at extreme settings when only 4xAF is applied:
I would not consider extreme quality with any level of AA/AF playable in the cities. I haven't tried it yet with no AA/AF. I do currently consider the Commonlands playable at extreme quality with 4xAF. I have not tested it extensively yet though.
These shots were taken by setting r_aa_blit_1 in the EQ 2 ini files, 4xAA/8xAF in the driver control panel, and selecting "extreme quality" under the performance settings in game. Nothing
was disabled or turned off. I would never try this on a raid or other than solo or in a small group outdoors, aka the Commonlands etc.
I already posted some at the settings I play, anywho, here's some Begger's Court 1280x960 4xAA/8xAF Very High Quality
And for laughs heres one of a Commonlands area 1280x960 4xAA/8xAF Extreme Performance, or MS Paint
