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!

      Hey Everyone,
      I just recently got a xbox 1.6 in great shape! super clean and a like new shell. I installed OpenXenium chip inside, upgraded the drive to a 2TB SATA (may go to a 500GB IDE I have hanging around maybe) upgraded to a 80 wire IDE, and it works well, only issue is. The DVD drive is DOA. I found it cheaper to buy another xbox for parts than a working/tested drive on ebay. So I paid $5 +SH for another xbox. This one was listed AS IS and not working, case was fair shape. I got it, it's a version 1.0 and seems to work just fine, the DVD drive works as it should. I placed it into my 1.6 and it's fine. Question now is... do I keep the 1.6 xbox as is and call it a day? or should I move the modchip (it's only plug and play really, just gotta solder new header pins to the 1.0 xbox) to the 1.0 xbox? should I go with the 500GB IDE or 2TB SATA? could I move the heatsink from the 1.6 to the 1.0GPU to get rid of the fan on the GPU cooler on the 1.0? and I would assume the system shell is universal and I could use it either way. With the parts I have, what can I do to make the best xbox I could?
       
      Thanks everyone!

      Hello everybody, I have a problem with my old xbox with amd duox2 modchip.. i would be happy if anyone could help..
      (sorry my english, i'm not a native speaker)
       
      I stopped using this xbox years ago because the DVD tray open and close casually, with no input from me (-> MAIN PROBLEM).
      Yesterday I decided to fix it: since every weld looked ok but the motherboard was very dusty, I tried to clean it up gently with compressed air and remove welding dirt from motherboard with the help of a cotton stick and alcohol.
      BEFORE the cleaning:
      - xbox powered up booting customer bios every time i plug it to the power, I could switch off by pushing the eject button;
      - xbox powered up with original bios if I switch off (pushing eject button) and then again switch on by pushing the eject button;
      - the power on/off button (smaller one) never worked as I can remember;
      - DVD tray open and close casually (and continuosly), with no input from me, with both bios.
      AFTER the cleaning:
      - xbox no more power up when I plug it to the power (no blinking led light on the modchip);
      - xbox powered up with original bios if I switch on by pushing the eject button;
      - xbox power on/off button (smaller one) still doesn't work;
      - DVD tray still open and close casually (and continuosly), with no input from me.
      Since I didn't mod the xbox by myself at the time, I looked some tutorial but I didn't find anyone using my setup. I don't know why I have BT point welded to the front panel..
      When the xbox was modded everything worked fine for a while, then I remember I got some problems and a friend did something at the weld on the motherboard.. I can't remember exactly (>15 years ago). I'm not an expert but it seems to me that there is a bad connection somewhere..
      Are there anything I can try to find the problem? Can I simply remove/unweld the modchip and get the xbox work like when it was original?
      THX
