i know that, if this is possible, its must be damn difficult, oterwise it would've been done before, but ill ask here anyway ;)
my question is, is there any way to do a plugin that renders 2D in software and 3D in hardware? cause for us, poor fellas w/out FSAA, background like FF ones are preety ugly, and filtering produces a lot of garbage. But 3d in software simply sucks :(
so, here is what i propose...

Hardware screen



Hardware Background



Software Screen



Software background



Final Work :D



so, possible? :emb:

I used the Extended + Smoothed Sprites but i didn't noticed much diference with Chrono Cross. Does it really improve the 2D?
