How to disable anti aliasing (Nvidia)

Open Nvidia control panel, go to “3D Settings”, then “Manage 3D Settings”. Scroll down to “Antialiasing – Mode”. By default it will say “application controlled”. Clicking this will show a drop-down menu. Select “override application settings”.

FXAA and MFAA will be available from the same settings list. Once you’ve set Antialiasing – mode to “override”, turn on the one you want to use. “Antiasliasing – Setting” will let you choose the # of AA samples.

If you switch the top tab from “Global Settings” to “Program Settings” you can set it to do this only for this game, if you want.
