Default no control over anistropic/antialiasing

Any idea how to control anistropic/antialiasing seletion on my GeFx 5700LE?

There don't appear to be any soft-selections of these features along the Display properties>settings>advanced...path.

They can be application selected, I know, but since I am running an application that requires them to be off and it expects me to manually set it thus and, since I suspect they are on by default on the 5700LE - I'm buggered.

Ok. I think I found a way for you to get there (in Windows)
1. Right click your desktop.
2. At the 'Display Properties' box, click the 'settings' tab, then click 'advanced'
3. Then click the tab that says your graphics card (GeForce FX5700LE)
4. Your comp should then load up the card's management system (software that comes with the card and/or nVidia website)
5. If you have to, click the arrow on the left side of the window, so the menu expands out. If its already expanded go to step 6.
6. Then in the expanded menu, click 'Proformance and Quality Settings'
7. Under 'Global Driver Settings' you should see anistropic & antialiasing in the menu. Click one of them to change the settings. NOTE: The check box 'Application Controled' must be unchecked to change the amount of filtering you want.

So there you go! A shorter way is through the 'NVIDIA Settings' icon by the clock on the taskbar. Right click that and then follow steps 6 and 7 above. An even quicker way if you're very advanced is to go back into the first menu I gave you steps for and make a profile for your game so you don't have to manually change it! Crazy!

Hope that helps a bit. Mine came with them automatically off (I have the same card btw), so I have to turn them on. Mostly I leave them off though, because I see no real visual change.

Coolbits provides control of AA and AF. Look at guru3d.com or a rewt's home page.
