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!

      I have a Xbox classic and I need to change its region from PATL to NTSC to enable the HD on xbox and yes, I am using Component Cable and I am sure the cable works fine. I have used the enigma program to change it. It says "press A for PAL or press B for NTSC". I do press B but when I reeboot the console with the key combination triggers + white /black button the region won't change. I enter again on enigma and the region remains "PAL". I enter on the original dashboard, I went to Settings and the option to set the 480p. 720p and 1080i won't appear.
      Someone told me about the Shadow C thingy but I don't know what is that and how can I do something to Shadow C.

      Please help me. I don't know what's wrong. Thanks.

      Hi
      Looks like the power supply of my Xbox has died and was going to swap it with another Xbox a friend gave me, but turns out the hardware got changed somewhere along the lines and it's not do-able to swap the power supplies, so figured i'd just swap the hard drive instead allowing me to keep my games/dashboard etc.  It's been a long time since i soldered the chip on my dead Xbox and the other one i have has a different chip.  Anyway, am getting 06, 13 and 21 errors on the Xbox with the newly installed hard drive.
      Is there anyway to keep my existing files on my original hard drive?   Remember something about the locking key on the Xbox hard drive - do i need to copy this over from the hard drive i removed?  Am looking at downloading the Hexen disc to start off.  Any help would be great.  Thanks
