 Battlefield 4 Antialiasing Tip - tech
(hx) 12:10 PM EDT - Oct,30 2013
The chaps over at HARDOCP have posted a tip for playing Battlefield 4 on Windows PC they came up with while putting the military shooter sequel through its paces for their technical evaluation. They encountered some odd results in the game's antialiasing, and have this preliminary tip for users looking to improve the game's visuals:
We are hard at work testing BF4, and the first thing we discovered was that the textures did not seem up to par for a new Frostbite 3 engine game. We quickly found out that by turning the "Antialiasing Post" (inherently FXAA) graphics setting to "Off," fixed this problem. The textures were now much sharper, clearer, and the fidelity in the entire game was better.

Post AA seems to be adding blur over the entire image, even though it does reduce aliasing on everything. It is the nature of FXAA, but it seems apparently bad in BF4 according to our testing so far. You have an interesting choice. We have a poll and a discussion thread which we would love to hear your feedback on what settings you prefer while you play BF4.

yes I've come to expect FXAA to be synonymous with shit blur screen.


I prefer jaggies or straight up proper anti-aliasing on poly edges, blurring the entire screen including text etc is not increased quality, its shit.

My screen is 1920x1200 anyway, so I normally just turn all forms of AA off.
