I'd heard you could use nHancer to enable it in Gears of War, but I think my card is too new and nHancer doesn't fully support it, or the new drivers yet.
I can't enable multi or super sampling anti alias in the game either.

Just speculation. But I don't know where I should seek help.
I got a 8800gt, and I can select coverage sampling aa just fine.
Maybe a driver issue - I'm using 169.21, what are you using?

You need the latest beta version, since the current official version doesn't detect the GTS 512MB correctly.

You can get it here, but remember that there are still some minor bugs:

64Bit: http://www.nhancer.com/downloads/nHa....0_1_Setup.exe

Default Re: nHancer version 2.1.1

Hi, when running nHancer and also when quitting nHancer I always receive the following error:
Error while writing the program options to the registry: Access is denied.

I have tried versions 2.3.2 and the beta 2.4.0 posted above, both exhibit the same problem. I'm new to nHancer so uncertain as to what to look out for.

Driver: 169.04
GFX: 8800GT

Hope you can help, TIA

Which Operating System are you using?

I would try to uninstall and reinstall your graphics driver. The latest official driver is 169.25, but this driver has some limitations with Anti-Aliasing, so you might want to look for the 169.17 which is better in my opinion.

Hi Grestorn, thanks for the reply.

The operating system is winxp 32.

I removed the 169.04 drivers (used driver cleaner pro in safe mode for good measure) and installed the 169.17 drivers as recommended. Unfortunately I still have the same issue as described above: "Error while writing the program options to the registry: Access is denied."

You need to be a user that has full access to the system, and not a limited user.

Basically, you need to have an administrative account.

If you have Windows XP home edition, it's a little bit harder to change your account type without logging on as an administrator account, which often if you're currently using a limited access account, the administrative accounts will all have passwords...except maybe the "Administrator" account, which is only viewable in safe mode, or if you aren't using the welcome screen. (you would have to type in "Administrator")

Hi PimpUigi,

I can verify that my user is a member of the local administrators group.

Additionally, the o/s is WinXP Pro SP2 (32bit)

OK, then hit start, run, type in regedit, press enter, and then go to

Hkey_current_user > control panel > mouse

and then try to change MouseSensitivity to 10 and MouseSpeed to 0 and see if you can change those entries.

This option is only required if AA doesn't work for a game.

Some games use special rendering techniques which inhibits the driver's normal Anti-Aliasing method.

With this option the driver can be told to work around some of those problems.

For most games where this is required and possible, nVidia already provided a profile with the correct AA compatibility setting. A few games, like for example "Two Worlds" could also use AA if you set such a compatibility value, but nVidia neglected that.

So: If you get AA you don't have any reason to look for that setting. If you don't get AA you can try a couple of values if they make a difference. The various AA & HDR settings are the most promising ones.


Note: All drivers later that 169.17 have a bug that completely disables profile controlled Anti-Aliasing. So if you want to use AA, you shouldn't use any later driver than 169.17!
