QUOTE=sillyeagle]16xS supersampling looks amazing, and I don't appear to seeing a performance hit with it. If you've got an 8800GTX you might want to give it a try.
every time i try anything higher than "the aa setting in the game" it doesn't appear to be working......when i use 16x thru control panel and shut off aa in game it won't work and i have no aa in the game.

if i use aa in game and set 16xaa to enahnce mode or over ride mode i notice no difference......

when i use 16x mode in other games i have i notice it. are you using nhancer or control panel? i would really like to try anything higher than the aa or af in game.

im using xp pro with 169.21whql from nvidia site.

I've noticed if I dont use full screen mode the AA doesn't take effect sometimes.

Check this thread at avsim, he talks about AA issues.

This is the most amazing aircraft I've yet flown in FSX. The flight model is just as good as its looks.

Np on the mesh link i thought id throw it up here for you guys to check out as the Hawaii MSX is one of the best addons ive got and i know you guys also dig it as you can see the mesh just adds that little bit more detail to it

& Thx for the heads up on the autogen addon heading over to Avsim to start dowloading now

BTW Did you guys checkout the EZ freewalk cam by Marniftarr yet ?

http://disk.tom.ru/l28n2ty/1/0e63c/E...era%20V1.2.zip

There's a few tricks. For one thing I usually pause it so the textures load up all the way, I also downsample from 1600x1200 to 960, and zoom out quite a bit, which is probably the most important part. You can move the camera closer to the aircraft if it gets to small when zooming out. Plus I hand pick scenery elements.

I get lots of blurrys when flying though, I just eliminate them from my screenshots.

Be sure to download and install SP1 and SP2. They can be found on Microsofts website on the FSX page.

Here is the link to SP1:
