Is it just my video/monitor or do all the characters in MI4 have nasty square edges to them no matter how you configure? I'm thinking I might need to download new drivers for my vid card. I've got an NVIDIA TNT2 RIVA. It's a good card. Why does it look so crappy?

Help

Yes, I looked everywhere for the anti-alias option, which doesn't appear to be available, for some strange reason. I'm quite certain I've played other games using DirectX that have used anti-alias, so it should technically be possible. I'll try to tinker with my settings some more, and hopefully find a solution. If anyone else knows how to fix this, please let us know!

I went into the advanced display properties for my NVIDIA Detonator drivers, and selected "FORCE ANTIALIASING". That COMPLETELY fixes the jagged edge problem with the characters. THEY LOOK AWESOME NOW!!!
HIGH RESOLUTION BABY!!

I found out that if you have a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 the graphics just suck and there's nothing you can do about it. Ain't that great! We've got to buy a GEforce or a voodoo 5 or something. No antialiasing for our sorry butts.

Have you tried downloading the latest driver from the nVidia website? Detonator 3 driver version 6.31 fixed the same problem for me.

Yeah, the Detonator 3 driver completely removed the option to set anti aliasing.

Did a search for that file, but all it comes up with is that this file is for the Nvidia Vanta 16MB/8MB AGP Video Card, and not the TNT2 Ultra.

Can't find the file anyway, but surely that can't be the right one?

I don't understand what you were just saying. Are you saying that the antialiasing option smooths the jagged edges with your NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 card? And you are not using the drivers that came with it or the detonator3? And what is rayman 2?

emm...let me explain it again!
the file which i mention before is driver file for Riva TNT 2...you must get the file and install it to replace your old driver

i found that file in Rayman 2 cd!(UbiSoft Game)....got it???
thats all pal!

I see now. I never heard of the rayman game. Also web searches turn up nothing for that string. So I guess I'm f***ed unless I want to buy rayman too.

Hey, would triple-buffering help?
I have that option to force in the properties of my Voodoo Banshee...

Thanks.
