What texture mode are you running the game in? You can find it in the video settings on the front screen GUI. 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2046, 4096. What video card are you using? How much RAM does it have?

Offline I can crank everything up including adding some AA from my video cards control panel in 4096 Mode. In reality with my 1G card I'm in 1024 Mode to eliminate stuttering over towns, fields, and in furballs online in the alpha arenas. Adding AA would eat away some of my FPS.

You need to give more info or even attach a DXdiag.

For grins try 1024 with the defaults enabled.

Yes, same here. Apparently AA isn't implemented yet. I tried forcing it on through Nvidia's control panel as well. I'm sure it'll be enabled at a later stage.

Try it from the alpha video settings, it is cruel turned on from there.

Did you read what I said?

...So yes, indeed, I did try the normal alpha's own AA setting first...

Check the "Disable Post Lighting" graphics option if you want anti-aliasing.  These two graphic options are mutually exclusive.

Would you consider a Skuzzy controlled sticky to keep up with the video setting words of wisdom.

Really?  Both are mutually exclusive?

At the moment they are. The reason is when doing post processing we first draw to a texture that is screen size, then do other mods before sending to the screen.

How most anti alias work is the card makes the screen 4 times bigger, then down samples it when it displays to the screen.

We could implement the same techniques but it because a mem hog and fill rate issues.

There are other ways to do anti aliasing that I wish to try later.
