Windows 7: Borderlands and AA

thanks drew - as per my post above, my saved games seem to be working now. i think my problem was due to having my user files on F: - bioshock, homefront and a few other unreal 3 games have the same problem - you would have thought the developers would have sorted it out by now, but no

thanks for reminding me of the game, jessie - i'd forgotten how much i enjoyed it - a sort of a poorman's comedy fallout, with guns, lots of guns, amusing characters, great music, original visuals and i just love the way some of the skags stand up and spit!

That tool is nice.

It obviously makes a change in regards to AA that was unaware of.
Whatever that change was, fixed my issue.



I downloaded it, and ran it, and now I can run with everything MAX, and AA.



Looks really nice now
Good find!


I enabled Phys-X too, but not sure if it is of any value.


LOL, I have so many games to play I cant decide what to concentrate on.
Was working on installing most of them, after the clean Windows install, but kinda been stuck with Borderlands since I installed it

Your welcome mickey.

@ Wishmaster, so is this the placebo effect or do you actually notice AA working in the game?

BTW I love the art and music of Borderlands. It's also a good game, but can easily become unchallenging in single player mode as you level up, especially once you get the DLC's which allows for higher levels.

The game is basically a multiplayer game with a single player campaign.

Yes, and No. It is working, but not as well as it could be.

Ive seen a couple places where theres still a bit of jaggies, but the large majority of it is gone.

The tools setting itself I didnt see much difference.
But after enabling it, I forced it through the CP, and it seems to be doing pretty well now.
Something with the tweak?

it's like in bc2, even with aa enabled, there are still jaggies on certain objects - but you don't get the horrendous framerate drop by just forcing it.

i've found using the tool, combined with forcing aa with ati tray tools (i've always hated ccc) smooths out the worst of the problem.

i'll upload some screenshots once i've turned them into jpgs...

*edit* if you look at the last picture, around the left edge of the 'table' there are some jaggies in places, but most of the screenshot is smooth.

maybe if i played with different aa settings i could improve it - but i would rather play the game, rather than with my settings

Yea same here.
Forced in CP.

For the most part it looks really good. To bad you cant get rid of all the jaggies, but Im happy with it like this. Much better than it was.

@ Wishmaster, thanks. AA always was a problem in that game no matter the tweak. Forcing it in the GPU's control panel might give some relief as drivers get better and better.

@ mickey, that last image looks darn good. Had you not pointed out the jaggies I wouldn't have noticed them.

Since you have an ATI 6950 have you tried MLAA? I'm going to give it a try now.

Glad you got it working.

I played this all yesterday and part of today- working on my new hunter.

Be nice to play some co op but not with my new hunter. One of my others would be ok. My first hunter maybe he has played everything- dont think he has any or many side missions left- his craw is awesome tho. If you just want to kill everything in maps and loot stuff or farm craw is fine with me.. I will not take folks to my armory tho.. Armory stuff sucks any way- I do not care to get locked out tho..

It is a lil hard to play with folks in this game you get what ever missions are showing in the host game and maybe stuck with them sucks.

* Any way that config tool looks cool. I am not worried on it tho. The game is cartoon like- jaggies do not so much bother me in the game and my vid card will not let me do a lot any way. Its running in dx10 all on high or [on] and 8x af. looks pretty nice and good view distance. I could run af a lil more high in dx9.

Borderlands is a cool game- can get a lil boring sometimes always playing alone tho.. If you guys want to hook up some time for some co op let me know I am game if you have all the dlc's that is? If you have rules say so. I am open to mod stuff tho I do not use it much- normally just to farm my craw as many times and as fast as possible up to 7x or if folks use them in duels or maybe to fast lev up a character. Im not using them with my new hunter Have none with him for 1. I am open to duping- drop dupe and out of game if you guys know what I am talking about. I think host should have first choice and give others same respect in his game.

I am not hard to play with or get along with. I normally follow and let folks play what ever maps they want to- so. I do not care for purists tho or will try and run off with mine or others stuff to destroy it- sucks. Being mods and duping is open out front in this game and not lied about or folks cheating ya like in other games. It is servers what ever purists can play on and leave others alone- is how I feel about it..

I pick up lil I have great stuff- I will drop dupe any thing I have if any of you want it- up to you.. I have maybe 10 or so mod things total but only carry a few things that are mod. All the rest of my gear comes from my craws. Some stuff I have another bud I share dupe with and move some stuff to my other characters- My siren has lots of stuff not duped yet.

I really only care to play my first hunter or my soldier in co op tho or with strangers- If they pick up missions I can not get rid of its not so bad. Being we are all from same forum and can hook up when ever it should not be hard to clear any open missions tho. You guys let me know what you think or your rules etc.. I am not much into dueling- if pressed I will mod or not its no matter. It is a few arenas I have not played yet- I would love to give them all a try someday- again mod or not is no matter to me- I will even dupe ya my mod stuff if you folks need or care for it- up to you. Which it was all give to me so..

I think it is best to pm and get server name or screen names versus the open- So pm me if you guys care to play- can join me or I you- no matter..

If you guys was starting a new player and if we all got same rewards- clap trap back pack slots etc Id ask if you all wanted to play with my new hunter he is lev 12 now. being only 1 person gets the rewards sucks and I started the hunter trying to get all the slots I can. I plan to play the dlc's with him before I start the destroyer per play through- I always started the dlc's before in pt 3 or 2.5 what ever you call it- I think I might get more slots playing all dlcs before I play the destroyer per pt. So it might be best to play your characters by its self until done with pt3 to get all slots- tho you can leave side quests open to play with others laters. I did not make the game- it sucks only 1 person gets the clap trap rewards tho and if all starting out new that is. So?

My siren and soldier have not played the clap traps yet and neither my soldier or first hunter has played prove your self yet at moxxi what 75 matches ? Not really trying to play the moxxi stuff either tho.. I back up my save games often- so it is hard for folks to hurt me or run off with my gear. I wish the game had a perm ban button- just kick folks they can come back.

I know where all boxes are maybe some you others have not seen before and its a secrete play at the race track I could take ya to- Some might know already. I guess it is a few boxes in clap traps I might have missed I only played it 1x and by my self so..

See ya..

i would like to play with somebody else, ezeht, but i'm on the other side of the atlantic, and ping/lag could be a problem.

@sygnus, i don't like mlaa - it sort of gives a blurry effect that i'm not into - i'm currently using adaptive multi-sample aa. tried it on 'edge detect' mode, but that really gives a noticeable performance hit, so it's currently 'box'.
