Smoothing out jagged graphics on an old aerial combat sim

Post by Chr2014 » December 17th, 2014, 7:20 pm

Hello to everyone,

There is an old jet fighter combat simulator from 1997 that I really like to fly. It is called Jane's Fighters Anthology.

The graphics are jagged. There is no anti-aliasing in this simulator. I run it in 800 x 600 resolution (the maximum resolution that you can select is 1024 x 768). In the readme file for the sim it says, "Fighters Anthology requires you to have a video card that is 100% DirectX compliant."

Is it possible to somehow anti-aliasize the graphics in this old simulation, so that the edges of objects appear nice and smooth?

Thanks very much,

Chris

Does it work if you add DXGL to it? If so and you have an NVIDIA GeForce 400 series or better you can enable FXAA in the control panel. Full AA support is not yet implemented. I could also add a color depth override but if the game uses DirectDraw to directly paint the US elements it will not work.
