Texture filtering[edit]

Use GeDoSaTo[citation needed]
  1. Download and install GeDoSaTo.
  2. Download and extract GLDirect and place OpenGl32.dll in the same directory as FF4A.exe.
  3. Create a whitelist in GeDoSaTo called FF4A.
  4. In GeDoSaTo/config, copy GeDoSaTo.ini and put it in a new folder called FF4A. Adjust the resolution values in GeDoSaTo.ini here if you want to downsample from a higher resolution for antialiasing as well.
  5. Run Final Fantasy IV: The After Years with GeDoSaTo active.


This can cause a wide variety of minor graphical glitches in places.
