FSX Main Menu image won't AA

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what the problem is.  Maybe it's an nVidia settings issue?  

 

I have FSX Box + Acceleration Pack running on Windows 10 x64 on a nVidia GTX 980 4gb.  For some reason the Main Free Flight window does not Anti-Alias the aircraft image.  It's not a huge deal, but I was wondering if someone knew what may cause this problem?

 

Here you can see the jaggies along the wings and fuselage.

But here, in the game you can see it's just fine:

Did you take that first screenshot while running FRAPS?  Try that same shot without it running, like the 2nd

 

shot.  Mine made a slight change for the better when I went from Tri-liner filtering to Anisotropic plus

 

Anti Aliasing.

 

I found this in an older post by Tom Gibson: "In DX10 the free flight selection screen is never anti aliased - that's the way Aces designed it. In DX9 you can force it to be antialiased externally."

 

You didn't mention using DX10.

Yes, I'm using DX10.  I have Steve's DX10 Fixer too.  

 

I did have Fraps running, so I turned it off just now and loaded the game.  It still looks the same

 

Also, Fraps says I am getting only 16fps on that Main Menu pic of the aircraft.  Why is that?  In the game I get 30-80fps.

Am pretty sure if you set the toggle FXAA to on in Nvidia inspector that will sort out the menu screen problem with the AA

Yep - Drazkent nails it. But use with caution as this will soften the appearance of your image in the sim as well, which may or may not be to your liking.

Yes, that does smooth out the jaggies in the Menu.  Thanks.  The game still looks good.  I don't notice anything so far, but will keep that in mind.  

 

Thanks!
