 8)Gos just installed a new GTX 970 Video card for me. We have one problem: In the "Manage 3 D Settings" adjustment form, under "DSR Factors" and "DSR Smoothness", both of these items are shown as "Off"! There are no options appearing to turn them on? Gos with the same card, has an "ON" plus many adjustment options for these two features?
Does any one know what I can do to get these options "ON"!
Does anyone know how to best contact NVidia or some "smart source" to fix this problem?

Hi Wayno,
I checked my card and here is how you get it to work.
1. Go to your NIVIDA control panel
2. Click DSR factor and select the desired rate. DSR smoothness will not work without this.
3. the DSR smoothness can than be adjusted in a percentage ratio.

I have not used this feature myself but it appears to be for older games that do not have AA or for older games.
I'll give it a try and see what I think.
As with anything you adjust, write down the original settings, try it and if you don't like it put them back.
Let me know if you want me to jump on TS and assist with this.

Cheers

Tai

I have just conducted some testing with the DSR using the global settings.
I went with a 4x at the default 30 % and I can read all of the dials in IL2 46 even with my bad eye.
Ships can be seen in full detail at over 5000m alt and ship hard points show up much sooner (more than 10 km)
I will test some other applications and see what happens.

why even use dsr, unless you need to? basically, it's ok, but unless you need it, don't worry.... Wayno, I don't know why the feature you asked about is not available, to enable... I never found out why it's not enabled..
