If you just want to use FXAA, instead of using PoEKey you can download NVidia Inspector, open the game specific profile and set "Antialiasing Mode" to "Override any application setting" and "Toggle FXAA On or OFF" to On.


NEW In version 2.21:
- Implemented 2560x1440 for Automode.
Thanks to pragmatick for the screenies!

NEW In version 2.2:
- PoEKey works now generally with every resolution not just 1920x1080!
- Automode just supports 1920x1080 and 1680x105 screen resolutions.
- If you have a not by Automode supported screen resolution you can use a hotkey instead!
- More configurable via INI.


Description:
This little tool will help you turn off MSAA in "Pillars of Eternity" easily whenever you start the game, enter a new area or loaded a savegame. This is achieved by a makro that will automatically open the console and enter the MSAA command. This can be achieved in two ways. First, if you use a by PoEKey supported sceen resoltuion (currently 1920x1080 and 1680x1050) the tool automatically realizes when you loaded a new area and handles everything for you. Therefore you will see the command console open briefly after changing transitioning into a new area or after loading a save game. Second way is by pressing the PoEKey hotkey after you transitioned into a new area. By default this is "^" (can be changed via the INI).

For the tool to work the hotkey for the console has to be the default!


Installation:
Just extract the downloaded file into a folder where you have full access rights. If possible it would be the easiest if you put it in the same folder where you installed "Pillars of Eternity" to. The access rights are needed because PoEKey will create several files in this folder it needs to work properly.

Uninstall:
Just delete every file in the install folder that starts with PoEKey.


Setup and first start:
After you started PoEKey it will show you its Ini-file in a Notepad editor window. Please make sure the path to your "Pillars of Eternity" folder is correct! Check the other values and change to your preference. Save the ini-file and close the window. After that PoEKey will start "Pillars of Eternity" automatically if you haven't changed that in the ini if it is not already running.


Supported Resolutions for Automode!
As of now the Automode of this version of PoEKey only works for screen resolutions of 1920x1080 and 1680x1050!
For other resolutions to work I need uncompressed screen-shots in BMP format of the loading screen that shows up during transitions and of the actual game window. If you want me to include your resolution please upload these screen-shots.


Have Fun!

PoEKey makes it also possible to use FXAA anti aliasing in Pillars of Eternity

In the NVidia driver activate FXAA. Now for it to work in the game MSAA has to be deactivated. Use PoEKey to do that automatically for you.

It is unfortunately impossible to create screenshots that show the difference properly! This is because the missing anti aliasing is most obvious while the game is running and the characters are animated. And I do not have the time to create a proper video. So you either take my word for it that the game looks much better with driver activated FXAA or leave it be. 8-)


If you just want to use FXAA, instead of using PoEKey you can download NVidia Inspector, open the game specific profile and set "Antialiasing Mode" to "Override any application setting" and "Toggle FXAA On or OFF" to On.
