UPDATE: SOLVED see last post for solution

Yes, I DID do a search for a solution.

Could anyone with a Radeon card and recent drivers confirm if anti-aliasing can be forced on your hardware or not? I can't force it at all on my GT440 so I'm wondering if this is an Nvidia driver issue.

The oddest thing to me is that I can force AA in GTA3 just fine, and they both use the same engine... mercie_blink.gif

Hopefully I don't run into the same issue when I get around to SA!

Where you have the game from? Have you tried removing the gta_vc.set file located in the Vice City User Files folder?
Besides, have you tried following this topic?

Are you using the NVIDIA Control Panel to force the AA on to GTA III? I used that to force AA on to my Vice City and it worked just fine so not sure why yours wouldn't.

Yes, that is exactly what I've done. Forcing AA on in the Nvidia Control Panel works for almost every game I use it for, with the extremely rare exception. This is one of those exceptions.

Oh, and to answer miromiro I am on the Steam version. I guess I could try deleting the file you mention (or at least move it out temporarily and see what happens).

edit: tried it, didn't work.

You can use ENBSeries to force AA:

Thanks MrMateczko, guess ENB will be my best bet. It's a pain but what can you do...

Hope it works on XP!

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. tounge.gif


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.
