    First off, don't enable AA and AF in the CP. Enable them for the game from within the game menu. Secondly, get the latest ATi official drivers or the latest Omega's, though for guaranteed stability get the ATi's.
    why enable it in game? ill try it anyway. and i have the latest kittens.

    some games prefer to have control over the AA and AF settings rather than use the control panel settings.

    That's what I had guessed. Unless there is some new Catalyst off-shoot like Omega.

    Oh, you can also try softmodded Catalysts. They're like normal Cats except they allow overclocking like Omega (using a program like ATITool). I've had trouble with the 4.5s, but the 4.4s work great.
    You can get them here:

    We aren't sure what you mean by "I have the latest kittens"

    Thats a link to new drivers for your video card that allow you to overclock it

    I tried to run pier on default high with 2 af and medium aa. I got pretty good performance, although i think theres an image quality loss compared to turning on aa and af in the cp. also when i tried to run with high aa i got bad performance. What is fc's aa and af levels in real money?
    BTW, how do u turn on the fps counrter?

    You have to use a program such as Fraps 2.0

    Do you have DirectX 9.0b installed, as well as your chipset drivers and so on? Also, if you must, just ty uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

    Overall though, a lot depends on what resolution your trying to accomplish all of this on.

    Defragging always helps, *******.

    These little abbreviations really don't make life easy. FC?

    Also, like I said, what resolutions are you using?
