Want Bloodlines to look better?
« on: August 29, 2018, 08:10:33 PM »
So I was tinkering with my Nvidia Control Panel today and the thought occurred to me that I've been playing Bloodlines with all application-controlled graphical effects, which are terrible. So I went into my control panel and began turning on Anisotropic Filtering and AntiAliasing. Wow, does Bloodlines look so much cleaner now. No more stairstepping effects on the models, everything is straight and the textures look more crisp. If you haven't done this yet, do yourself a favor and turn this stuff on, it takes like 5 seconds to do and will make Bloodlines look so much better.

Gave these settings a try, and there is indeed a difference. A subtle difference, but noticeable nonetheless. Thanks for sharing Zer0morph.

To others who try this, be warned though that you cannot run ENB mods with this kind anti-aliasing on however, and that they must be turned off before applying the ENB settings, as the mods themselves should mention.

You're welcome buddy! I was looking at my "Let's Play" and noticed the stair steps on everything and remembered I could use the Nvidia Control Panel for better results. I'll be playing with that turned on for future videos.

I always use SweetFX to get antialiasing which has one big advantage over the GPU way: you don't get it in the console so while tinkering the text there is still sharp :)!

I also love SweetFX, although I use some more radical presets....

With Realism sometimes I have to disable it but DAMN! look at these screenshots!
