Haven't tried it but if it runs like crap without AA, then that's the reason they didn't put AA in the game. It would literally multiply the problem by the level of AA you chose.

Does this add support for rebinding the right mouse button and fix the sprint bug? That's my only real complaint about the game. I think it runs fine on my system, especially considering it's over 3 years old except the video card (GTX 260). I don't get all the whining over AA either, why can't you just force AA in your video drivers? Personally I don't see the need to use AA at high res like 1680x1050. I'm too busy playing the game to be looking for jaggies on the edges of polygons.

Considering the shit that you need to step in to install and play the game, I think FSAA is the least they could offer.

What a spoilt cry baby. My game doesnt have anti-aliasing wah wah.
Erm, I think you better get back on your medication. Anxious

It doesn't ruin an otherwise awesome game!
Well, for me the terrible performance and poor visual quality do let it down. It's only annoying because the gameplay itself is very good. For a AAA high-budget game it really is very weak.

I mean, what the hell is wrong with developers like Rock Star and Epic. Seemingly every other game supports AA.
Exactly. It is incredibly important to visual quality and yet developers are still writing rendering paths that are incompatible. DX10.1 even makes it mandatory to support 4xAA. What's worse is that it isn't small developers working to tight budgets but large titles with hundreds of millions invested in them - the first DLC for GTAIV alone has a budget of $25m. These are the developers that should be pushing out the best quality work, not this sub-standard crap. The big insult is that the promotional images all feature high-resolution images with high levels of anti-aliasing applied, as they figured people would be happy with how shit it actually looks.

I agree that no AA is a HUGE drawback. I mean, what the hell is wrong with developers like Rock Star and Epic. Seemingly every other game supports AA.

Is this the patch that makes me want to buy the game?

What use would an AA option be if performance is so bad without it? I've setting for shadows that don't look like crap.

I just played the FEAR2 demo. I know it's trying to do a very different thing, but they've really done a great job.

Cool, I look forward to seeing if it impacts performance. I would like AA as well, but it's been made pretty clear the game will never have it. It doesn't ruin an otherwise awesome game!

The lack of anti-aliasing is really what disappointed me the most. AA support would make all the difference in the world.

The game still runs like crap and I have a decent system. The lack of anti-aliasing is disgusting for a modern game.
