  1. Can it be that u use vista? I had the same problem, its a drive issue, but since its only a control panel dont bother.

    Select advanced view and u get all the settings u need. ;)
  2. i use MCE..... well... that solved the problem, i can see the preview now...

    but what i want to know is the lighting effects and such... you know.. the AA... etc... buffering.. whatever that is ... thx !!
  3. my settings are:

    Anisotropic : App-controlled
    AA Gamma : On
    AA mode : Enhance Application setting
    AA Setting : 8x
    AA Transparency : Multisampling
    Conformant Texture Clamp : Hardware
    Error reporting : off
    Extension limit : off
    force mipmaps : none
    Texture filtering - aniso sample optimization : on
    Negative LOD bios : Enable
    Texture filtereing quality : Quality
    Texture filtering - trilinear optimization : On
    Threaded optimization : On
    Triple buffering : On
    Vertical sync : Use 3d app setting

    Hope this helps. My philosophy is I try to set as much as I can ingame, hence the aniso and vsync setting. However, after some research I found out that nvidia recommend the enhance app setting for antialiasing, it uses CSAA which seems faster and better. Don't hesitate to post any comments if you have any.
