How can I learn more about SSAA and using the DX Tweaker?
for dxtweaker: as far as i know there isnt a guide yet
edit: i slapped up a quicke guide for dxtweaker
Look forawrd to using this app but havin trouble here
Read all posts and ChoGGI's directions (thanks)...but to no avail.
Following directions exactly.
W/ trying to play HL2, set up the Conifg. w/ Steam exe as path, Arguements: -applaunch 220
both Force Shader Plugins checked
Present Change checked
Try and start game from Icon in DXT'er app. Screen flickers a bit, and a very quick flash of the DXT'er, then nothing.
Trying to start game after using the DXT'er from shortcut, game will not start at all. Only after reboot.
SWAT 4...same set up but when I try and start game get a Runtime error.
Pure Virtual function call.
Hoping for some help
ASUS A8V Delux
Athlon 64 3500
Saphire X800XI PE
.net 1.1 / SP2
Iam using firefox and had no probs dl'ing it. How bout some starters for us noobs lol. Like some general settings and such.
well thats the same error i get with swat 4 (and other unreal engine games).
you could try a newer version of .net (you didnt mention it but i assume you have dx9c).
and did you try hl2 with just the active box checked (no tweaks)?
Thanks for the reply.
Yeah, have DX9c, will update to newer .net version.
And will try HL2 with no plug ins.
be sure to uninstall your older version of .net.
Unfortunately we determine that the current version have problems with some version of the DirectInput8 DLL. As a result of this games will crash during start or will not start at all.
Likewise the problem with games based on the unreal engine are a regrettably mistake in our DirectInput hook implementation.
We have working solutions for both problems and hope to release an update with them soon.
In the meantime I am apologize for the trouble.
HL2 smoother without triple buffering?
Is it just me or does HL2 play smoother wit v-sync + no triple buffering?
The game has always been a bit jump/stuttery, seems better without tb?
On the otherhand, cs source never stuttered for me and is way better with v-sync + triple buffering....
Any anti-cheat applications calling this out for wire-frame mode? Seems a bit risky w/punkbuster IMHO..
so is there gonna be a DirectX Tweaker for all win XP Sp versions or is it just for SP2????
would like to try it out but i don´t have SP 2
How many games is the triple buffering tweak in this compatible with?
So far i only tried it for cs source and hl2. Works nicely.
It doesnt want to work with Swat 4 demo.
Will it work with the full version of Swat 4?
dxtweaker doesnt work with unreal games at the moment
see post 149
I play cs source in 1280x1024, x4 AA + x8 AF @85hz
I turn on v-sync and DX Tweaker Triple buffering. (cos i get tearing)
The triple buffering helps, but my fps is still not quite good enough in cs source?
It still falls to 30-40fps in big firefights....
What else can i do?
lower the water detail or the shader detail?
When i turn off v-sync, i have enough fps.
I dont want to lower graphics settings...
Only thing i can think of is a monitor with higher refresh rates?
Works with SP1, too.
Hmm ... which Unreal game do you mean? I've tried Postal 2 and UT2004 and they worked fine with 2x2 SSAA on my Radeon 9800 Pro.
Greetings from Germany,
i was going by this post by Demirug (its #149)
edit: swat4 still doesnt seem to work.
