    Any idea wheather they added opengl renderer or merely optimized dx engine via their togl translation layer?
    What hardware do you have? You'll ideally have a midrange or greater nvidia GPU and a fast CPU. CSMT is also a must, it gives a large performance boost with this game (IIRC it was close to +100% on my system)

    sorry if my english is bad i hope it's still undertandable
    It's (probably) still coming, they just removed it from Steam for whatever reason.
    It's going to be re-added when it's out - aka (likely) when gog start selling Linux games.

    Some FXAA tests from way back, read info in the lower right side, click on the cog in the upper right side -> View Full resolution: http://imgur.com/a/SpScJ#0

    It gets fixed using Ubersampling but that means you have a powerful GPU to begin with: http://is.gd/M3UOEU & http://is.gd/ZJOAqw & http://is.gd/OD0zT9 & http://is.gd/CG4L3k & http://is.gd/ZuTy3z

    Nope, they are not JPEG artifacts, at the edge of the shadows there is dither when "Sharpen" is actived in the settings. Disabling it makes it go away.

    For a game that is otherwise pretty gorgeous (and is aging quite well IMO, unlike Skyrim which was pretty bad on release), the dithered shadows is a real eyesore. I wouldn't mind having it as an option for lower end machines, but a more conventional shadowing effect would be preferably if it is technically possible for the engine. I'd even take the F.E.A.R. brute force method of layering translucent textures.
