Anti-aliasing with NVidia and Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, December 2, 2013 Under: Quick Blog Tutorial
Hey all!

This post is a bit more toward the game developer than the gamer and that is anti-aliasing in Blender's Game Engine.
Nvidia has in it's control panel, something called: "Let the 3D application decide". While this may work for exe games, I found that on my PC, this does nothing with Blender and keeps it as aliased as the day is long, haha.

In order to fix this, you have to make the card's control panel decide the quality level, and from there, Blender can turn it off or on, however it is set in the render settings:

(AA Sample)

Now, instead of producing a very very jagged object or scene, it is now a lot less jagged:

Do note that this result is only in the viewport upon opening Blender. As soon as you play and exit, it goes back to being jagged, BUT, depending on your AA setting, it will be smoothed in-game.
This is as far as I know, the only way to let Blender decide the level of AA that should be on the game-play.

I do have a fairly older card, but I'm sure there are many of you still in the 500 series as well.

And that's it for this little QBT! Have a great one!!

Thank YOU!!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
