Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Anisotropic filtering is changed along with streaming options, when player adjusts Texture Detail.

Texture Detail AF samples
1 Disabled
2 Disabled
3 4x
4 4x
5 16x

It is possible to manually change the Anisotropic filtering options.

Manually changing AF by editing config file[citation needed]
  1. Edit %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Section 8 Prejudice - PC\S9Game\Config\S9Engine.ini
  2. Find a line MaxAnisotropy= and change its value.

Notes

Changing any graphical option will result in a game reverting the settings to original values.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

There is an option for Multisampling in S9Engine.ini, but it does nothing. Instead use SMAA injector or force AA from graphics drivers panel.

Installing AA injector[citation needed]
  1. Download either SMAA injector.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Binaries\Win32\ and paste the files here.
  3. Open injector.ini.
  4. Change weird_steam_hack = 0 to weird_steam_hack = 1.
