Default Rage3D Tweak Guide - The Secret World (PC)

We go in-depth with the long list of graphics options for Funcom's MMORPG The Secret World in our tweak guide. Give it a read to find the best balance between visuals and performance.

Secret World Tweak Guide

Editor's Note: A few hours after publication, we updated the article slightly thanks to tips from NVIDIA. Sections affected include Tessellation (new screens and tweaked information), and Texture Filtering (tweaked information).

I thought that for TXAA to work the game needed to support MSAA? Is this not a DX11 title? Why does this game not support MSAA? What is this another Batman?

I love this quote
Quote:
Utilizing DX9 in The Secret World locks you out of SSAO and Tessellation. By that alone you'll save quite a lot of performance, but the visual impact of switching to the old system is jarring
But I can almost not see any difference in the screenshots

I still have a dx9 card, yeah I suck.. the vacation was expensive and I couldnt buy a new card now.. And my gf has dx11.

We both play with all high and the difference is almost not noticible.

Its a little better looking on dx11 but nothing at all that you notice when playing.

How many cycles were done of the benchmarks? Some of the results are very inconsistent with performance increasing as options are turned on, which doesn't make much sense does it?

TXAA is not actually available ingame yet afaik. Nvidia's latest beta driver supports it and mentioned Secret World as the first title to have it, but I don't believe Funcom have turned it on yet ingame.

I think it probably only supports FXAA due to it being easier to implement for them in post-process instead since they have deferred lighting etc. though I'm not expert.

Default Crossfire help?

I am not a tech wiz but I can sorta hold my own. However, I'm not sure about crossfire and TSW. I'm not sure, but I think I'm only using one video card while playing. I'm sorry I don't have a tech explanation but can anyone help me?

I'm pretty sure I read that AMD released new drivers for TSW but for the life of me I can't find them and when I ask Windows (last resort) for driver update it says I'm running up to date drivers.

TSW doesn't current support Crossfire. However a post recently made quoting an AMD rep:

http://forums.thesecretworld.com/showthread.php?t=46398

Quote:
I have been told by engineering that the issue was the result of Funcom not adding crossfire support into the game when released. They are in the process of producing an application profile to add support but that could be a few days or possibly a week away. I will update you when I know more.

We all have different standards.

Usually one, though more if results were inconsistent. Some were still inconsistent after multiple cycles; as noted, to some extent this is unavoidable in a persistently online game.

TXAA: True. FXAA: Most likely, yes.
