Tired of all the bad post-process AA that is in games nowadays? Tired of borked AA driver support? Here is a trick that will work with virtually every game and give you amazing image quality.<br><br><b>Step 1</b> is to download this little program right here.<br><br>
<span huddler_attributes="{"plugin":"attachment","params":{"id":"10767","name":"DownSamplingGui0.6.zip","description":"","size":222,"type":"zip"}}" huddler_plugin="attachment">
<a
class="attachment loginreq"
href="/attachments/10767"
title="">
<span class="file zip">DownSamplingGui0.6.zip <span class="details">222k .zip file</span></span>
</a></span><br><br><b>Step 2</b> is to go into that and open the .jar file named "Erstellen" which will bring up...<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b7/b7061189_resolution.jpeg"><img alt="486" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="888561" data-type="61" height="486" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b7/228x486px-LL-b7061189_resolution.jpeg" style="width:228px;height:486px;" width="228"></a><br><br>
Change the width and height to whatever resolution you want to downscale from. I.E. if you have a 1080p display choose 2560X1440.<br><br><b>Step 3</b> is to make sure GPU scaling is off in CCC.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/5/52/524eaf3e_scaling.jpeg"><img alt="566" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="888560" data-type="61" height="566" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/5/52/600x566px-LL-524eaf3e_scaling.jpeg" style="width:600px;height:566px;" width="600"></a><br><br><b>Step 4</b> is to open up this tab and uncheck "hide display modes etc etc"<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/c/c6/c6328432_hertz.jpeg"><img alt="475" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="888562" data-type="61" height="475" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/c/c6/413x475px-LL-c6328432_hertz.jpeg" style="width:413px;height:475px;" width="413"></a><br><br>
Now the new resolution should show up in your display properties. Select it and fire up any formerly jaggy filled game and enjoy. Also if you shutdown windows be sure to change your resolution back or you will get a black screen upon booting up.

This site wants me to download a Download manager <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif">

The performance impact is going to be the same as running the game at the higher resolution. In other words if you downsample from 1440p to 1080p the performance will be the same as if you were running in 1440p.

uhh can you upload this to like mediafire or hotfile? theres no way people (including me ) are going to download some crappy download manager

Another vote for mediafire. Down with these rapidshare knockoffs.

I tried it but... My 7950 cannot even run BF3 decently on 'High' at 1080p... Now with this, I must play on 'Low'. Revert, but thank you anyway.

While this is nice and all, it's simply better to use SSAA, not only will you get proper downsampling instead of your monitor downsampling, but the performance impact is basically identical.

Yes but the issue is that SSAA does not work in all that many games. Even with AMD's Dx11/10 patch most Dx11/10 games will not let you force SS or even AAA.<br><br>
This works on every game.

Really? What games are you talking about when you say SSAA is not working? I've got it working in BF3, Civ V, Shogun 2, Dragon Age 1&2, Witcher 2, Mass Effect 1&2&3, Nexuiz...<br>
If the game's got ingame MSAA, then just set Antialiasing mode in CCC to Supersample and control it with MSAA in game

I know for a fact it doesn't work in BF3. The rest of the games you listed I have no idea because I sold off my 7970 a long time ago. Regardless it doesn't work in every game. If you want to stick your head in the sand about it be my guest though.

That's because since I got rid of my 7970's I don't have the software anymore. Regardless the link works.<br><br>
Another advantage of supersampling like this by the way is that there will be no blur and you won't have to hope that driver LOD adjustments get it right.

theres no performance hit is there? a guy on the other page said that it broke his FPS.

SSAA does work in BF3...<br><br>
The performance impact of running BF3 in 2560x1440 @1xMSAA is comparable to running 1920x1080 @4xMSAA.<br><br>
As for this being actual supersampling, it's not. The only thing this does is bring a performance impact, it does not remove aliasing in any way and in many cases make matters worse. While an interesting trick, it is ultimately useless without a downsampling algorithm.

No it definitely removes aliasing. I'm guess you haven't used it yet. This is basically the same thing as ordered grid supersampling.<br><br>
And if you play so few games you can't find an incompatibility between SSAA and aany game you're not trying hard enough. They are everywhere and I'm not going to get into a pissing match with you about it.<br>
Anyway, Borderlands regular<br>

I totally see the no difference you were talking about. Educate me some more about anti-aliasing please.

I honestly can't find the link on that garbage page you linked. Everything leads to their download manager.<br><br><br>
lol downsampling 1080p on my 1366x768 19" monitor. Much better replacement for the few games I have that don't support AA with no need for an injector now.<br><br>
Nevermind, the tiny Download in the middle of the screen finally gave me the file instead of another page after 3 tries.

Nice, yeah I run this every now and then on older games as well. That's really where this shines since newer games will choke using this unless you are on a low res screen. I just recently pl ayed Max Payne 2 however downsampled with 8xMSAA. Literally zero jaggies.
