Hi IStonia,
Do you think it would be possible to add various antialiasing options inside the program?Like an on/off switch and a selection of preset samples perhaps?
SlimDX seems to support it: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12351424/enabling-antialising-in-slimdx-d3d9

My graphic card does not support it. Try this and see if it works on you side.

Yes, it's definitely better. Wireframe looks smoother now, even with only 4 samples (a popup informed me about hardcoded sample count). Could you expose sample count somewhere? Preferences->Viewport perhaps?

My overall impression is much better than the one I had with Wine's SampleCount, which I mentioned in the Linux thread (http://digitalfossils.com/nvil-forum//index.php?topic=4451.25), because it does not make the HUD text blurry.

Thanks.

Multisample Type works great.
Multisample Quality doesn't affect anything and is always reset to 0 (I'm not sure what it supposed to do anyway).

I don't know what Multisample Quality does either. If it is reset to 0 that means your graphic card only support 0 level quality for that particular Multisample type.

Well, I guess it doesn't matter then. What's important is that Multisample Type does the job. :)
