Does it? I haven't seen any improvement (graphics wise) in games like Mass Effect 2, COD4, or even NFS Hot Pursuit confused.gif

Absolutely it works, what is your screen size and resolution and viewing distance?

It works sometimes. In fact, I'd say more often than not, it does not work. It depends on the particular game. IIRC I had to switch the name on the .exe for masseffect2 to like ut4.exe to get forced AA to work on that game.

I've never had a problem forcing AA with Nvidia's control panel. ATI's CCC on the other hand, never worked.

My guess: Override actually does just that. Overrides app settings to force AA.

App controlled is just that. Lets the app control the amount and type of AA.

Enhance likely, well, enhances the app AA.

CCC works wonders with IL2. The only way I can get AA and Vsync in that game. Course.. that only works with one driver. The mythical 10.4.

It used to be this way, but a profile has been added and this is no longer necessary(not that you still play ME2 lol).

As far as Application/Override/Enhanced, it is game specific.

For instance games like ME2 and Oblivion do not support AA so the override function must be used.

For games that do support AA(in the game settings) you can use the Application Setting(Recommended) or the Enhanced setting.
*the enhanced setting should only be used in games where you get well over 60FPS and want to add a little bit of extra sharpness to the game.

The problem with games like ME2 the developers have purposefully made the game super dark so that you can not see the jaggies.

Games like Oblivion only support AA when HDR is disabled. If you want to see what forcing AA can do run Oblivion with HDR and Override 8xAA+ and you will see a big difference.
