Anti Aliasing DOES NOT fix bad textures.

I swear to god. Some people have no idea what they are talking about.

No amount of AA is going to make a muddy blurry texture look magically better.

If ANYTHING AA is only going to make jaggy polygons look smoother.

On the OTHER hand

Anisotropic filteringCan help with textures.(My bad, fixed)

But it basically takes samples (of which you can change the multipliter) of pixels and aggregates colour values to smooth them out.

High levels of AF can make things look very blurry.

So with AF enabled your bad textures will just look like blurry bad textures.
