When people refer to aa and af in the graphics settings, how can these be turned off when playing Pacific Fighters? I have a 6600GT

AA and AF are features that enhance the graphics of your game. Turning them down or off will give you better performance at the cost of having graphics that don't look as nice. Graphics cards usually have a utility that you can use to adjust AA and AF as well as other features. I can't tell from your post exactly what you are trying to do. Can you be more specific please?

What I'm trying to do is increase the framerate, I find it gets choppy when I fly over land, and all i really care about is framerate, and if turning off AA and AF will increase that I would like to do it. I also only have 512 Megs of Ram, should i Upgrade that if I want to play this regularly? I used to play flight sim's a lot, but were talking 10 plus years ago (Aces and Falcon 3) , so i'm out of the loop when it comes to tweaking.

For the record my system is

P4 3.0
512 Ram
BFG 6600GT
40 GB HD

Another 512Mb memory will help. Overall, looks like you have a decent rig to play one. The sim is really cpu dependent and if you are running onboard sound, an Audigy 2 sound card will free up some cpu cycles for the game to use.

I have a NVidea Ti 4600, I can simply alter my graphics card settings, I think you should be anble to do this on your card too!


You should see an NVidea symbol at the bottom right of your screen - see picture 1.

Click on this to open up your settings menu.

In 'Performance and quality settings' chose 'image settings' (see picture 2)and change from 'quality' to 'high performance'. You won't see much difference ion picture quality, but your frame-rate will improve with this setting.

If you don't have the NVidea symbol: right click on an empty area on yor desktop and select 'properties' from the drop-down menu, then 'settings', then click on 'advanced', then chose the tab for graphics settings (see picture 3) and from there click on 'performance...'.

You can change the Antialiasing and Anisotropic filtering settings via this menu too.

Hi Coco, you have a P4 cpu and are getting stutters, have you tried the Beta P4 DLL's? (I dont remember exactly what they are called) They are supposed to help alot. Sorry, I dont remember where you can download them.

Thanks for all the advice

Does anybody know what he is referring to? Are these DLL's specific for the game?
