Description

What's the problem ?
In the last time I often claimed that AA does not work,
but now I found out that AA itself is working fine.
That means the problem is somewhere else.
Normaly I have a special behavior how I use Dolphin.
I first download a new revision,extract it, run dolphin,
open the "otions->configure..." and set the settings I need,
then I open the "Graphics" menu and configure it too.
Then I close dolphin and start it again to make sure
all settings have been applied (eg. language).
Then I start the game I want to play.
I always use Dolphin in this order since ~r2000
and it always worked fine.

Now, this order leads to a non working AA since newer revisions,
I found out that when I configure all settings in the
"Graphics" menu and I close Dolphin and then run
Dolphin again and start a game the AA setting does
not apply although the "gfx_opengl.ini" says AA
is enabled (MSAA = 7).

For example, when I really turn AA off,
then the "gfx_opengl.ini" says MSAA=0

When I start dolphin,configure all settings in the
"Graphics" menu and I close Dolphin and then run
Dolphin again, I open the graphics menu just for one sec,
and then I start game, AA works fine.

So, obviously there is something broken which loads
the settings, it shouldn´t be necessary to open
the graphics menu to apply the settings and
also dolphins "gfx_opengl.ini" shouldn´t
say MSAA=7 when AA is obviously not working,
so it should say MSAA=0 but i don´t.

Dolphin version with the problem ?
Sorry, as this problem appeared
dolphins revisions where broken
and totally messed up with
the "profile configure support".

Please provide any additional information below:
In the moment I use Dolphin-win-x64-r7561
with Windows Vista 64 bit.

"When I start dolphin,configure all settings in the

Does the gfx config dialog show the correct value when you open it? ..

#2 Updated by Nick.Lustig about 9 years ago

"(1)Start Dolphin/(2)Configure/(3)Close Dolphin/(4)Start Dolphin/(5)Start Game"
-> [I set "Anti-Aliasing: 16xQCSAA" before I close Dolphin (2)]
-> gfx_opengl.ini shows "MSAA=7" (4+5)
-> Game has NO Anti-Aliasing (5)

"(1)Start Dolphin/(2)Configure/(3)Close Dolphin/(4)Start Dolphin/(4B)Open graphics menu/(5)Start Game"
-> Menu shows "Anti-Aliasing: 16xQCSAA" (4B)
-> gfx_opengl.ini shows "MSAA=7" (4+4B+5)
-> Anti-Aliasing working fine (5)

I really don´t like that you merged it into 4498 :(

#6 Updated by NeoBrainX about 9 years ago

The cause of the issue is the same for both issues.

#7 Updated by Nick.Lustig about 9 years ago

I know, but the title of 4498 especially refers to DX11.
The Issue description does not contain the real problem
(opening the graphics menu)and also does not show
that it´s a generall problem.
Also I tried to tell you this problem since we talked
about it, but I couldn´t find you on Irc.
Now after a few weeks I decided to make good
issue report containing all necessary info
(except the spelling mistakes...) and you merge
it into a Issue which has a messed up description
and does not point out when the issue happens
(only after a few comments as Oehrg noticed
the same problem I talked about).
I mean, I´m the one who claimed that
AA does not work for a very long time
and nobody believed me, except you ;)
And yet it´s just merged into another,
just bothers me a bit...

"I couldn´t find you on Irc" how are you called on IRC? I'm usually around actually.

(also, please don't use that many line breaks, it kinda disrupts reading :P)

#9 Updated by Nick.Lustig about 9 years ago

I just called myself "Nick",
I tried to find you on some different days and times but I never
saw someone in the list who is called Neobrain or Neo,
Is "#dolphin-emu on EFnet (irc.efnet.org)" the right Irc channel ?

(I´ll try ;P)

#10 Updated by NeoBrainX about 9 years ago

Yes that's the right chan.. Just ask for me the next time you're around, people will tell you where to find me then ;)

Fwiw, the problem is trivial to fix, but I don't have time for coding right now.
