I absolutely love Oblivion. There are things about it that dissapointed me as well, but alot of mods and such are taking care of alot of Oblivion's annoyances. I think that Oblivion was still more of an evolution than a revolution, but it is still one of the best 50$ I ever spent. Hopefully Gothic 3 will be the RPG that we have been all waiting for...?

Has anyone tried nHancer yet? It isn't working for me. It gives me an error asking me if I rebooted my computer after I installed my drivers (which I did do). I am using current drivers.

What would be the point? The one would defeat the other! The Antialiasing would attempt to make any sharp edges soft, and would defeat the high definition image.

Make sure you save the settings when you leave, and don't hit cancel. Doesn't happen for me. I think there's also a setting for auto-setting the settings based on detected hardware. Fiddle with that and see what happens. My guess is your hardware is unrecognized by the auto-config and it's thinking your system sucks. Try searching the iD forums, too.

It was my understanding that in order to turn on SLI in the BIOS, you have to have 2 cards in the mobo slots. It won't work with just one card (for obvious reasons).

Anti-aliasing doesn't make sharp edges soft, it reduces image failure. A straight line at an angle being displayed on a display with pixels that aren't at that same angle end up jagged (aliasing), so you need to anti-alias them in order sharpen the edge of that polygon/line/shadow/whatever.



You seem to have HDR mixed up with "high definition" ... HDR is "High Dynamic Range" ... it has to do with lighting and things of that sort... Even if it did stand for high definition, anti-aliasing wouldn't have a bad affect on it, the higher the resolution the better, the higher the multisamples the better.

HDR has nothing to edges of polygons or resolution, so I don't see how HDR would defeat anti-aliasing, nor do I understand why it's not theoretically possible to have them both.

Then again, I have seen them both at the same time with Half-Life 2: Lost Island or whatever it's called, so yeah.
