Texture Filtering

Forced Texture Filtering can cause odd lines in the faces of characters; it should not be used for this game. Anisotropic Filtering will cause the same issue in D3D.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
Video Back End OpenGL Allow anisotropic filtering /wo lines on character faces
Force Texture Filtering Off Avoid odd lines on character faces

r6519 Windows XP x86 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ nVidia GeForce 8500 GT Full playable but the cinematics go slowly
3.0 Linux Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Intel Core i5-2300 @ 2.8GHz nVidia GeForce 430 Perfect, EFB scaled copies must be off asdf31416
r7714 Mac OS X 10.7.1 x64 Intel Core i7 @ 2.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750M Perfect except for final cinematic which needs VSync
r7714 Linux Ubuntu 11.10 x86 Intel Pentium E2200 @ 2.2GHz Intel G33 Crashed after the introductory scene when cell shading was attempted.
3.5 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-950 @ 4.1GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 570 @ .9GHz Almost perfect, the only problem remaining is the sound, many many glitches. Titouf
3.5 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom X4 965 @ 3.4GHz ATI Radeon HD 4850 Almost perfect, some sound problems. Gonner
3.5-367 Windows XP x86 Intel Pentium E5300 @ 2.6GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750 Perfect
3.5-375 Windows 8 x64 Intel Core i5 @ 2.4GHz nVidia GeForce 310M Perfect, sound problems are gone, even with HLE. Nar
3.5-1063 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom X4 965 @ 3.4GHz ATI Radeon HD 4850 Played till the end. Perfect. Abalaburn
4.0-100 Windows 8.1 x64 Intel i7-4700MQ @ 2.4GHz nVidia GeForce 750M Occasional crashes but overall pretty great 4/5. TheFoxyBox
^3.0-377 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i5-3230M @ 3.2GHz nVidia GeForce GT740M Framerate perfect, have not completely tested it out. I'll report back. Njord
^4.0.2 Windows 8.1 x64 AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6850 Until now the game is running perfectly, very stable. Internal resolution at 4x. guilhermerx7
^4.0.2 Windows 7 x64 AMD A8-3850 @ 2.9GHz AMD Radeon HD 6550D Some minor audio stutters, especially on the Choose Units screen, but otherwise perfect.
4.0-1871 Windows 8.1 x64 Intel Core i7-3770k @ 4.6GHz AMD Radeon HD 7970 Problems with character sprites when setting Anti-Aliasing or Anisotropic Filter to values other than None and 1x respectively. Some combinations of the internal resolution and AA can bypass this issue.
^4.0.2 Arch Linux x64 Intel Core i7-2600 @ 2.6GHz nVidia GeForce GTS 450 Perfect, other than the "Force texture filtering" bug. 10n45
^4.0.2 Windows 8.1 x64 Intel Xeon X5650 @ 2.67GHz AMD Radeon HD 5770 Great, other than a little audio glitching, which doesn't happen too often."
