Yes they do. My question is which option is better? Right now I'm using edge.

Though I have the collectors edition of both Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2, they don't even come close to what a Collectors Edition should be compared to Bioshock. In that regards, I would consider this my first "real" Collectors Edition.

And to be quite honest, Dragon Age can't even stand up to Mass Effect 2 with regards to extras. In ME2 you get a an art book and a comic book. In DA: O you get a cloth map. Wow!

At any rate if you collect like you say you do, you might want to find a copy of this special edition of Bioshock 2 while supplies last. Good luck though.

Peace.

Ive found Narrow & Wide Tent tend to "blur" the image of a lot of games.

The highest quality, is Edge Detect, but its also triples the AA effect of what ever you set it at.
And you need a minimum, of x4 setting for it to work

So x4 = actual x12 AA & x8 is effectivly x24AA

I don't like the results from narrow and Wide personally, and prefer I prefer Box or Edge.

Edge Detect looks the best if you can get by with on whatever game your using it on
If not, Box is the next best.
At least IMO,.

Yeah, I'm using edge and the game does look better now that I'm forcing AA in CCC.

Thanks.

Note that I meant Anisotropic Filtering (AF) not Antialiasing (AA). In CCC and 3D graphics up the slider to 4x in AF.

This game is a crash/freeze fest for me. Hard freezing everywhere. DX10 issue, CF issue, video driver version issue, sound driver issue - who the F knows

Using Edge AA x4/x8 results in corruption. Box x16 / x16 AF is okay.

The game 'forgetting' mouse sensitivity upon each reload is also a PITA.

This one is going into the 'maybe later pile'.

Wow Smarteye sorry you're having such problems. Only thing I can say is Crossfire issue?

Have you checked the guys over at rage to see if they're having problems?

Gawd, I am tired of MW2 but I left Bioshock 1 at about 40 to 50% completion so I seriously doubt I am going to like this one. ME was a little to Sy-Fy for my liking... I am so jealous of you guys right now is not even funny!

May your resolution drops to 800 x 600
