Jagged edges with new computer, Intel HD graphic

Recommended Posts

I am setting up FS9 on a new computer for my friend. Its a Gateway with Intel i3 processor. It has on board graphics, Intel HD graphics. I'm getting jagged edges around all the airplanes. Now if it was a Nvidia card, I would know what to about this problem, but have new clue with this Intel HD graphic. Thanks

Don't expect too much because that is a crappy video solution. You can go to the Graphics Control Panel to make some changes.

In FS settings, did you set filtering to at least Bilinear? For antialiasing, do you run FS9 in windowed or in full-screen mode? In the Intel settings (right click on Desktop>Graphic properties>3D), did you adjust them?And another question: how is the Intel HD in terms of performance?Best regards from Colombia,Luis Miguel

My rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.8-4.0 GHz, 8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1050 2 GB, 256 GB M.2 SSD+256 GB 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage, Windows 10 Home)

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel.

Finally moved to P3D4.5. Also running FSX-SE, FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. Tried MSFS2020, but my rig isn't up to the task. What do I do with 4 sims now?

Hi Luis, I have filtering set to trilinear, I run in windowed mode,Yes i have adjusted them, Texture Quality=Performance AF=16x Vertex Processing=Enable Software Processing Vertical Sync=On. As far as Performance, it runs very smooth, have alot of scenery add ons, GE pro, UT ,FSGlobal, Pay planes..........Its just really smooth....45FPS in FS9 maxed out............

It is the I3 that is giving him smooth FPS. The onboard card is very poor and will be a bottleneck.Regards

Looks like a good option for replacing my travel laptop (Inspiron 11z), but I'd like to know which CPU has your friend's laptop. I see you have "Enable software processing" for vertices. Why don't you set it at "Default" or "Application controlled"? You know, hardware processing is faster than software processing wink.png. Also, you may try to leave texture quality in Quality or Balanced.I remember hearing something about AA not working in windowed mode, but with Nvidia GPUs. I'm not sure about Intel, but you may try going to full screen (if you don't mind the pause and black screen before getting the menu bar and the kneeboard).But well, in my travel laptop I don't expect too much to be done about jagged edges; there may be nothing to do then.Best regards from Colombia,Luis Miguel

"but I'd like to know which CPU has your friend's laptop", Luis not a laptop...........is this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Desktop+/+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B+i3+Processor+/+6GB+Memory+/+1TB+Hard+Drive/3152445.p?id=1218380507379&skuId=3152445 Rob, I'm sure your right about the onboard card. The gal that I'm setting it up for is giving it to her husband for Xmas. I have set up FS9 and all add ons for her, we even ordered a Saitek-Pro Flight Yoke System- for him. We didn't get him a monitor, she figures he'll go out and get the biggest he can find lol, so I'll tell him to get a better graphics card.

Just to clarify, Intel HD graphics card has no AA settings. That's why there are jaggies.Bob
