1.004, no mods, i think they all make the game look worse overall, even if they look good in 1 specific setting

Just tried it, works for me too. 19x10 2xAA gets me 25fps or so. 4x is in the 16fps range and too crappy.

IMO, for Stalker, we need next gen video card to use any form of AA (be it MSAA or SSAA) with smooth frame rates at HD resolutions such as 1920x1080p, 1920x1200 and above.

Also, wonder why Stalker's engine (X-ray) does not utilize multi-threading?
From various benchmarks I've seen, having run the benchmark on single, dual and/or quad core CPUs doesn't make much difference (if at all) in performance.

The engine is a little old. We've all heard the stories about the hiccups the dev team had. Maybe a revision will see it support more cores. Still for me it runs great. First and perhaps only game that runs better under Vista.

GAH@!%$#!

I've spent at least 5 hours trying to get Stalker setup with mods and not crashing out.

NOW...Stalker runs like I want but FSAA decides to not work any more. $%^&*!@$^!!!

Was working fine before Stalker blew out my vid card driver install. Reinstalled Stalker 3x and my vid drivers 5x in the process of figuring out why it would crash all the time. Turns out its a save game bug; don't reload old saves with new mods.

FSAA not working definitely has something to do with driver setup or install on ones machine not being proper but what? Anyone figure it out yet?

Jonelo, what version of Stalker are you running? 1.0004?

Ok, thanks. Its not the game, its the drivers.

All I did was I just reinstalled older 169.17 (had 169.21 loaded) winXP drivers, set CP like normal to Override with AA and now FSAA is back working in the game. For those that can't get it to work, try these drivers.
