I think I need some technical assistance. Is there any particular tips and tricks what is the best graphics setup for improving spotting in DCS?
Yesterday we had a nice short flight with Storm, and I discovered that even thoug I knew where I should look, I was not able to spot the boogies Storm picked up, I was “no joy” on them until the Last few hundred meters.
Any assistance would be really appriciated.
I have graphics set to high preset and I play in 1440p resolution.
Thank you in advance!
The answer is simple, You need to switch (at least in MP) to 1080p.
Then a “new wolrd of spotting” will come to life Actually the spotting in DCS is bad, the LOD system is bad and so the top players on MP server switch their resolution to 1080p, the only one that give You a decent spotting range.
I play normally a 1440p and, even if it was the last thing that I wanna do, after months of swearing and cursing cause I was pratically blind respect to others who stay at 1080p, I decided that every time I will play MP I will switch resolution.
I’m also on 1440, and yes, I’m at least half blind most of the time.
But I’m not hot on the idea of flying on less than native resolution on my screen, so I figure I’ll continue to be half blind, but in a more beautiful world at least.
I’ve found some threads in forums stating fxaa causes most of the issues, rolling only with msaa can help, also I was thinking on setting up an nvidia filter to improve contrast, maybe i will give that a try too. Will let you guys know if I step on something that works.
Absolutely no FSSA and MSAA max to 2x.
Effectively AA will try to render less jagged every slanted surface…so a far contac of about three pixel will be corrected by any form of AA in a matrix 6x6 gray pixels, effectively disappearing it from the screen.
