Thanks for joining the Graphics community.
I understand you are looking for an earlier graphics control panel Graphic User Interface.
The only way to obtain an earlier graphics control panel would be installing old driver for your graphics controller, I regret to inform you that Intel does not maintain older drivers on downloadcenter.intel.com; you will need to check your computer model and download drivers from your computer manufacturer.
The new control panel has all of the same options that the older versions had - it just shows them differently. For the 3D tab, you should be able to access the options as follows:
1) Open Control Panel, select 3D icon
2) under General Settings, select Custom Settings
3) now you can select the relevant options - these will affect both DirectX and OpenGL.
4) note that some options that were present in older drivers have been removed since they are obsolete (HW vs SW vertex processing, texture quality - LOD biasing); some new ones have been added
Are you seeing some specific issue with 3D settings not being applied for OpenGL?
Forcing Anti-Aliasing off in control panel does not turn it off in one of the games i play and the game itself has no such option to turn anti-aliasing off or on its always on and it makes the performance very poor and not enjoyable to play. there is no newer version of the game that has such options either and there is no configuration files for the game to change the options for AA either so i'm stuck with a laggy game :c
the game is in openGL 1.1 but supports some kind of anti-aliasing still when i disable my graphics card driver in device manager and play the game it runs but really slowly and anti-aliasing is shown as not supported in the game log so then it turns it off but it says its supported with my graphics driver enabled in device manager so it forces it on whether or not its forced off in control panel it only seems to work for some DX3D games and not openGL games?
also in older version of control panel and video driver it actually worked but i dont have the old version on my computer anymore since it was updated :c
I have this problem
Intel graphics control panel now offers an option to allow user to disable driver reporting Multi-Sample Antialiasing (MSAA) capabilities to applications. Some applications automatically enable MSAA, if the driver reports support for it. Enabling MSAA makes the workload more intensive, it can impact the frame rate/smoothness of animation for certain applications. In such cases, this option provides the user the ability to disable MSAA. The option appears in the 3D tile
but my intel hd graphics (bay trail) does not have the option to disable MSAA so the game-application uses MSAA no matter what AA option i choose in the control panel since i only have AA-Anti-Aliasing option in my control panel.
Please help because the game is unplayable with MSAA always enabled
If someone can think of a way to disable it via software or a specific driver please tell me as the game-application does not have an option to disable it in-game
On my other computer with ten times worst graphics card MSAA is disabled since its not supported and the game runs flawlessly and i dont want to have to use that computer just to play one game.
does no one have a solution to this problem? its getting really old having to deal with massive input lag and stuttering and slow-downs from MSAA always being enabled.
What game(s) specifically are yo seeing the issues with?
Also, what feature of the "old" Graphics Control Panel are missing from the latest version?
"Open Hexagon" is the name of the game i'm playing. it has no way to disable MSAA from within game so it uses it no matter if i have AA enabled or not in control panel because MSAA is not in my control panel
Heres link to a video of open hexagon Open Hexagon - Official Release Trailer - YouTube
it is simple game but runs very slow with MSAA always on. i have no option in my control panel to disable MSAA there isnt an option like in for Iris HD Graphics and such.
