    Hi RasmusP have followed your video and patched .dlls then placed in game root folder, shimmering now reduced by 90 % Thank You.

    Your screenshots are not showing.

    Glad it helped! Awesome :)
    Screenshot thing: RD doesn't allow such big images but to see something like LOD bias changes, you need the file size.
    So I upload them on Dropbox but for some strange reason the embedding doesn't work for smartphones. On PCs they are all there.

    Is my guess correct that you aren't on a windows PC? :)

    This fixed my GTR2 that looked awful after I changed from AMD to Nvidia (Still love my 1080TI though ;))
    Thanx RasmusP :)

    No prob :)

    Little rant about the clamp option:
    everywhere you read that you should set it to "clamp" and that it would be important because Anisotropic Filtering works the best with it... And then you find out that it's actually broken since a few years :rolleyes:

    How do you see improvements with flickering in still images?

    You clearly don't, absolutely right! I would do a video but Youtube has a too low bitrate for that.

    What you can see is that there are less jaggies on the images, so it's likely to have less flickering too :)

    I like that you asked this, cause I always hate the anti-aliasing comparisons in gaming tests with standing still images and when you launch the game your self your eyes are bleeding :laugh:

    Someone claimed earlier in the thread that after upgrading to the Windows 10 Fall Update, NVIDIA AA (as set in the AMS Config AA presets) stopped working. Anyone else that has updated can share his experience ?

    The ISI engine that AMS uses and that started with rFactor is especially sensitive to crawling, shimmering and flickering. Super sampling or SGSS has been the only way to get rid of it over the years. Screen shots can look very nice, but then horrible when you are in your car and moving in the game. But you know that already!

    Yep! And both Screenshots are already with 8x msaa + 4x sgssaa so you only compare the maximum of AA with lod clamp or non-clamp.
    If we were talking about msaa vs sgssaa I wouldn't dare to just post standing still images :p

    Answering my own question. Took the plunge and updated Windows 10 and it indeed broke NVIDIA AA in AMS. AMS Config NVIDIA preset AA settings have no effect anymore and forcing AA via the NVIDIA Control Panel for AMS.exe does not work anymore as well. So for now until a solution is found, if you want to play AMS without eye cancer, do not update to the Fall Creators Update.

    Did you do a clean reinstall of the Fall Creators Update, or a previous version ?

    I strongly recommend that people do not do this. There is no reason to have people go around hacking their drivers files when we offer a built in solution by editing the following lines to this in your PLR file. In fact we may just add a Texture Sharpening option to the in game menu, to stop this type of advice full stop.

    Okay... I officially declare my love to your studios! :inlove:
    I didn't thought that there really is someone on this planet anymore that cares about this and provides a built in solution :confused:
    Of course that's better! I'll edit my post accordingly.

    Nonetheless: my way works for all Dx9 or earlier games, do you mind giving them all a little slap to get them to fix their things? :p

    EDIT: tested it and it's perfect. The fences are a bit blurred like with the driver "patch" but the buildings still have their textures. Thanks Alex! :)

    The previous. AFAIK the fall update isn't even out yet (only for insider branch), and this was about a month ago anyway. :)

    That would be such a great idea--to put these basic settings that we have all been fiddling with since the beginning of rFactor in the UI. Combined with the SweetFX presets and options, it can't get any better.

    This setting wasn't available in rfactor, we added it.

    Yes, in the olden days we had to do it through the driver.
