Did you've an internal graphic card, perhaps?

No, I have a Nvidia card and I'm forcing the AA.

Noticed the latest builds are causing very jerky game play? With il2ge disabled all back to normal.

Yes, this could be the source of the problem, the options for "perfect mode" are greyed out in-game despite HardwareShaders being set to 1 in config.ini. Any suggestions?

1/You must use openGL and not directX, could be a clue

2/here is an example of openGL section in conf.ini that works on my PC, try to crosscheck it with yours.

I switched back to normal graphics for two reasons:
beautiful as it is, il2ge drains performance quite much on certain maps, making them not really usable when there are loads of planes, flak, ground objects etc..
and second, on quite a few maps, there is trees in the water and on certain winter maps (as has been reported already), ice is not shown but water instead, making those maps "interesting" to use too... one map (cant remember right now which one, but I can find out if there is interest) would not load at all, producing a CTD right after loading of the mission starts...

but all in all, il2ge produces mostly beautiful results and if those performance issues and certain map anomalies can be ironed out, I will gladly reintroduce it to my install...

Me too Griffon_301 my gameplay is smoother without il2ge and i found the lines on maps very annoying.
Good looking for sure but i prefer the old graphics!

Guys, this is a WIP project.

@Griffon: If your game suffers from CTDs when using il2ge, you could contribute to the further development of this great extension by posting your logs.
It's vital for devs to know what is going wrong in user installations, and it's endlessly frustrating to get "doesn't work" replies back without any useful information.

@PO_MAK_24RIP: I don't think anyone really prefers "the old graphics", it's rather that some appreciate the new ones enough to deal with the remaining issues while others don't.
The lines on the maps are a known issue and I'm sure slibenli will tackle it one day.
The fact that longer view distances reduce FPS is something that applies to all games everywhere, we'll have to deal with this as long as TD sits on the native library codes and continues to lock down the game further on instead of working together with us.

... given current circumstances, DT had better share native library codes with us before it is too late and the whole planet goes downsouth ...!  8)

I will fire up the game with il2ge enabled and try that map again and post a log then....
For the time being, the reduced FPS gameplay is what makes.me stay with the "normal" graphics, beautiful as il2ge is though....

Can you identify the build(s) with which this issue starts?

Hi slibenli it was definitely the last one and i think the one before - micropauses, worse over built up areas
