Well, it works insofar as I can have AA and AF working in the game now... but now there are ugly-looking shadows all over the place and the lighting just seems all off. So more problems were created in trying to solve my original problem...
I went into the enbseries.ini and tried to disable everything that wasn't related to AA and AF but it still looks worse than the unmodified game. If I can't get rid of these effects then I'd rather just play it without AA.
Any ideas on how I can fully disable everything ENB does that isn't related to AA and AF?
edit: yeah, I give up. The game looks far worse with ugly moving shadows all over the place, AA or not. I'll just have to wait until I can try an AMD video card to see if that will successfully force AA on, or wait until I build a Windows 7/8 system, and play without AA in the meantime.
It would be funny if AA worked while running the game through WINE under Linux. UPDATE: SOLVED
A very helpful person on the Nvidia forums helped me solve my problem. It goes like this:
1) download Nvidia Inspector
2) nvidia inspector -> profiles -> Grand Theft Auto 3 -> add app to current profile -> gta-vc.exe
After doing that I now finally have flawless AA in VC! If you don't have GTA3 installed with AA settings already configured then I suspect you would have to change the settings manually in Nvidia Inspector when you add gta-vc.exe to the profile. Hope someone else finds this thread helpful.
