Incredibly useful utility
for users of nVidia Geforce
1 and 2 cards. It places two switches in your Windows toolbar
, to toggle antialiasing
) in OpenGL
apps respectively. This is useful, because it allows you to play, for instance, Quake 3 Arena
with no framerate-hostile antialiasing, then with a single click switch up to super 2x2 antialiasing for Escape from Monkey Island
(or any fairly old, visually simple game, such as Quake 2
). Written by Guillermo Carbonell, and available from http://guru3d.com/geforceaa.
Flash Harrys with GeForce 3 based cards can laugh derisively, as their nifty quincunx antialiasing doesn't carry such a high computational overhead as to require a switch. But you can wipe the smiles of their faces by pointing out that Half-Life runs faster at low res on a budget Kyro II based card than on their uber-card. Mwah hah hah...
