HDR with Anti-aliasing [Nvidia cards only].
By Lukyz
Simple guide to force Anti-Aliasing in Chaos Theory so you can have HDR enabled with no jaggies.

If you like this guide or find it anyhow useful, please take a second to rate it or write me a feedback. THX!

You have to download NVIDIA Inspector []
Learn how to use it []

Open NV Inspector, open driver profile setting and find SplinterCell: Chaos Theory
Now normal setting will not work so you need to enter special behavior flag number to antialiasing compatibility field -> 0x800002C1 and set Antialiasing Behavior Flags to none

Update: Because I don't really understand how compatibility codes work and it seems they change in time maybe with newer drivers there is a list of codes which worked for some people a you need to try which one works for you.

0x00001041 <- This one works for me just recently (2021)

Now just experiment which setting is best for you.

My setting:

Antialiasing compatibility - 0x800002C1
Antialiasing Behavior Flags - none
Antialiasing Mode - Override any application setting
Antialiasing Setting - 4x [4x Multisampling]
Antialiasing Tran. Multisamping - Enabled
Antialiasing Tran. Supersampling - 8x Spare Grid Supersampling

I hope it help someone.

If you're using an AMD gpu:

Go to Gaming Tab > Splinter Cell Chaos Theory > Advanced Settings > Anti-Aliasing = Override application settings > Anti-Aliasing level = 8xEQ > Anti-Aliasing method = Multisampling

Multisampling provided better image quality as it detects transparent textures like fences, supersampling on the other hand, ignores them.

This doesn't seem to work for me sadly, found another fix elsewhere though.

@The_Ranger: 0x800002C1 bits DO work for me

0x800002C1 bits doesn't work anymore - you need to use 0x00001041 (slightly breaks thermal vision tho, locks and keypads are fine). And number of MSAA and SGSSAA samples need to match or you will get worse quality! Transparency Multisamping should be turned off.

Its one time procedure and settings will be same no matter what you change in the game unless you uninstall Nvidia Inspector of course.

Will this stick? Stick as in will these steps need repeating before starting the game each time? Will these custom settings revert if I go into the in game graphics settings or should I set those to my liking and THEN proceed with the above steps?

Anyway, great find! Love Chaos Theory! I just finished a run through of Pandora Tomorrow as it's been 100% playable (from what I could tell). Fixed using dgVoodo 2; a wrapper. I'll have to try these steps playing through THIS game.

Thank you! Doing this with 4k res looks better than Blacklist.
