Forcing Anti Aliasing In XBox Games?

Recommended Posts

So yes, there is my question. Could there be a way to force AA (Antialising) into Xbox games?

 

Here is the thing, I finally got my Xbox working with an amazingly good component cable, and now everything looks so sharp that it became a jaggy mess to my eyes. But there is one game (that I know of, there must be more) that uses AA, that is Beyond Good and Evil, it uses a very effective AA, so much so that even my CRT looks better (tons better).

 

Could there be a way to implement this? I mean I truly believe the Xbox would be more than capable. Beyond Good and Evil runs like utter crap, with very bad framerate on the PS2, and with less effects, lower resolution and no anti aliasing to speak of! And the Xbox version not only runs at a better resolution, it also has more effects, better textures, runs rock solid and on top of that has super smooth AA (which at the time was very GPU demanding).

 

So that's why I know this could be possible for Xbox games, at least at 480i/480p, but how to implement such a thing, would be the hard part!

 

Let me know guys if there's anything like this! Maybe something like this already exist? Cheers to all ;)

Im sure the flicker filter and can't remind the other switch, which has 5 positions - in the XBMC dashboard, both have effect on games too. So when you turn both OFF, games like Halo 2 look sharper, that much so you can see some texture details, which looked washed.

Really? I use Unleash because it has a bigger interface for my CRT TV. But I will try what you say! What XBMC do you refer to though XBMC4GAMERS? Or standard XBMC?

Thank you neighbor! My best regards

tried that on standard XBMC, the difference is very noticeable on a HDTV through component.

Yes it works! But actually I was trying to find a filter. With both XBMC4gamers or the application called FlickerFucker you can actually get rid of most of the filter!

Now my image looks even sharper! Is great but I would only use it on a HDTV, on my CRT the standard flicker filter inherent to the Xbox is preferable, because it stops the flickering from the interlaced 480i image, so you want it ON (that is the 5 filter option).

 

For 480p or more, I highly recommend lowering the filter to 2, 1 or even 0. As progressive outputs don't suffer from the flickering of 480i.

 

Cheers!

      Purchased a Xbox V 1.0 that has the Xecuter X3 mod chip, unit wouldn't even boot at time i received it ( sorry been otta this for like forever and just getting back into it ). After numerous trials and errors i finally got it to boot up, switch configuration on front. Anyways seems like its missing the backup that should be on the mod chip itself, doesn't seem to matter what i try cannot find it, other problem is it only stays on maybe 45 mins and shuts down, i think its a power supply issue, going to try another power supply this weekend since i do have a good replacement for this version. Other issues is cannot turn unit on with power button, only with the eject button, also another weird issue is when its first plugged in it comes on without touching any button on the front, lots of strange issues going on here, maybe someone may have a bit of insight to help resolve these problems. First thing i did was remove clock cap, had leaked a little but not bad at all, area around it got a very good cleaning and looks great
