I tried this and no AA is visble on the cars or anything else that comes into focus. However the shadows are very much improved and lag / stutters are gone.

Are you guys sure you have AA even though this essentially disables it? I'd like to get this working if possible. I have a good system, but I'm running three screens and the game does lag on certain tracks with AA.

WOW! When I first played this game on my rig it was not even playable. I was getting around 20-25fps and it lagged like a SOB, so I stopped playing after the first race! After using the settings you posted, I'm now running around 40-60 all the time,Tho I can see some major jaggies, but I also forgot to set the texture filtering in-game to high (was on Trilinear) 2 races later and all is good! Thanks for making this playable!

UPDATE: I turned on texture filtering on high,but then i get lag, I can see jaggies everywhere,looks like EA has some patching to do.....

Thanks for the info and setups. This has made the game 100% more enjoyable and fixed all the bugs. Not being a young nimble gamer I need all the help I can get. Thanks

Never had any problem neither using an HD5770 and 11.4 Preview drivers. Running 45 FPS at 1280x1024 with everything maxed out minus Morphological Filtering which made the game look kind of cartoonish to me.

I have a new system sandy bridge 2500k @ 4.5 Ghz and a 5850 and was pretty bummed out that the game was running so average where Crysis 2 runs like a dream. Anyway FPS from 49 to 84. Thanks again. i'll post this fix and point to this forum.

I too just registered to respond. lol

Anyways, by far this is the best fix I've seen yet. I'm Running the following specs:
  • 2 ATI Radeon HD4850 512 in Crossfire
  • GA-MA790x Gigabyte AM3 Motherboard (SB 750)
  • 4GB (2x2GB) 4-4-4-12 800mhz G.Skill Memory (1066 doesnt work with my board, go figure..)
  • AMD Phenom II X3 720 OC@3.2GHz Unlocked Fourth Core (AMD Phenom II x4 955 Equivalent)

Previously I had RadeonPro (3rd party software) set to Alternate Frame Rendering, which gave decent performance. But anything reflective would constantly flicker and night races would look awful.

I tried Ekko's steps, and exited RadeonPro, and to my surprise any and all Flickering is gone! Unfortunately I've experienced two problems:
  1. Anti-aliasing still isn't present, plenty of ugly jaggies
  2. Performance is still at 30-40 FPS, so no performance gains
  3. This may or may not be due to the fact that I hooked my computer up to my 26" 720P TV. It runs at 1376 x 768, so setting the game to run at 1920 x 1080 results in an awful looking image, but 1280 x 1024 (a 4:3) resolution won't really look too good on a wide screen TV either.

What am I doing wrong? I used the exact settings used by Ekko, and no matter what resolution I use, Jaggies are still present. Performance isn't there either, but I think that may be out of our hands. There's no way I can run HL2 Episode 2 at over 100 FPS maxed 4x AA and 4x Anistropic. HDR, all that eye candy and can't run this game over 50 FPS at a lower resolution than my monitor's 1680 x 1050...
