Hi, i have an ati 4870 card for DCS (English Version) but I just cant get the anti-aliasing to work in the game. I tried playing around with the control panel and I tried different drivers but non of them work. I also installed the ati hotfix which made it work untill I upgraded to the Nov release of DirectX 9. Also sometimes when i rollback the drivers i get AA to work the first time I run the game but thats it, after i quit or restart the pc is over. I dont know what else to do, any help?

I also reinstalled the game.

 

System is XP pro SP2

2 GB Ram

AMD dual core at 3.2 GHZ

Asus P7P55D Pro

Intel i7 @ 4.0 GHZ

8gb xms ddr3 memory

500gb SATA HD

ATI 5870

27" Dell LCD Monitor

Thermaltake Black Widow 850W

Are you using ATI Tray Tools?

 

ATi Control Panel is what you mean, and he already said he's using it :)

 

Tbh Amagad, ATi drivers and their inability to force AA have been around for a while now. Depending on which game you try it on, it'll work, either marginally, or not at all. More cases not though. There was a thread about this on the ATi forums a while back, clicky.

 

Though I'm hearing later versions of nVidia drivers suffer from the same impediment.

Not the Catalyst Control Centre - ATT is an independant, third-party utility that does the same, if not better, job than the CCC :)

Your game needs to be set to "Full Screen" in options ;) i had that issue with lockon so maybe try it here to see if it works... in the options screen in game its just a check box in the graphics tab at the bottom :D

do you have 2 monitors? because for the longest time to get mine to work (and i had the same problems) i had to go into CCC and dissable one monitor hit OK or Yes or whatever then re-enable it and it would work..... i contacted ATI about it but no response :s

Ditch that crappy CCC and get the ATT, like Viper says :thumbup:

Aye - Quite Right :D

 

I note that the link provides an updated version from the one I downloaded approx a month ago. Any Improvements from the previous version, Mustang?

about the ATT whats different about it? does it just control stuff like AA and AS and things? is it a performance boost? does it look better? just asking because i dont know :P

 

Aye - Used in conjunction with ATI Tweak Guides, there is a lot of helpful Hints/Advanced Tweaks that I have picked up.......that and your PC will wheeze a sigh of relief at losing the Resource-Hog that is the CCC.....:D

This's how I solved my same problem !

 

Maybe this will help, first you should remove current driver, remember to remove everything include Profiles.

- Then install driver from the CD comes along with your Card

- Create new profile with appropriate AA, AF setting

- Run the game several times to check whether the game runs properly with AA,AF on.

- If it's ok, restart the PC.

- You now can update your driver with new software from vendor's website.
