    Well it's really simple, due to the distance i play from the monitor at 1900*1200 and in motion alias is not easy to see. I even did a test with multiple games using people very sensitive to it from that distance, they couldn't reliably tell what setting was being used, except when using post process AA. I take the shots i find interesting from gameplay sessions. Im not someone that goes through the game pumping AA to unplayable levels to take some shots.

    You can probably pump all the AA you want in Half Life 2 and not notice any performance difference. Assuming you have a decent gaming GPU from the last 5 years.

    16:10 implies not using a HDTV so what are you using that you are so far back from may I ask? Just curious.

    Also I run Edge AA on Skyrim with ENB mods doing Bokeh DoF etc. It looks f'ing gorgeous. I'm not going to keep it like that if I can't run around like an idiot whacking monsters with my sword. Based on the hardware you have you find a good balance between playability and quality. Of course if you have to turn off any AA whatsoever to get good frame rates then I understand. But if you have to turn off AA in HL2 to get 60fps, I'd be considering a PC upgrade :)

    60 fps? The game is ran at 24 fps here, can't get 60. The output device is just a PC monitor, played maybe at 4-5 ' away.

    It looks lovely, although it's halved my FPS running it with the mods when compared to stock.

    Can a GTX Titan run Crysis yet? Or maybe do we have to wait for 10nm GPUs.

    Yes, digital foundry tested it recently at max details and 1440p I believe and and still hit well over 60fps.

    You don't need a Titan.... 8xAA is also running with TrSSAA enabled too.

    They didn't say that, still dips at 1440p and 60fps is only available with AA disabled.

    Which wouldn't class as Max

    Oh yeah, I was thinking of the SLI tests.

    The game is a sight to behold :cool: ! Still find it more fun to mess around in this than play newer games ! Sikkmod +Wulfen texture pack is just beyond amazing to look at ! All effects are enabled in these screenshots. I get pretty low FPS, below 20, but I am loving what I am seeing on my monitor !

    Can someone tell me what SSIL stands for? and what does it do in the sikkmod?

    ALso, which is th echeapest option among the many SSAO options present in the mod ?

    Oh Wow ! I didn't know that ! I can't see th effect on default settings, maybe I will increase the intensity to see what it does. I didn't know GI could be done in screen space too. Will th eflashlight bounce off the walls like in The Last of Us ?

    The biggest FPS killer right now is the soft shadows. Turn that off and the game becomes smooth and easily playable !
    BTW , 4 fps here :lol: ! usually getting 15 everywhere.

    These are from Steamscreen shot fnction , hence quality is very low.
