Quote:I never said I didn't like them. I thought they looked good. I was only trying to tell you that coming up with SweetFX settings that work for every map is an uphill battle. Quote where I said I didn't like them?
My point about Karlitos is that he got upset when someone pointed out something negative in his screenshots but didn't point out anything positive. My only assumption is that we were supposed to see something positive in them, which I did not. Which is fine. But I don't see why we HAVE to point out things that are positive in screenshots. I, for one, embrace constructive criticism. Which I'm about to respond to in the next quote...
I agree. And I don't add the sharpness. Flickr does. It's a common problem. Here are a few threads on it...
As you can see, it's a common complaint. The sharpening isn't applied to the originals, but all my originals are in PNG format and are around 2.5 - 3MB in size. Which is fine for the Flickr crowd, but tends to bog down forums. So I post the downsized images that flickr generates and, unfortunately, applies sharpening to. Here are a few originals though. Let me know if they still seem too sharp to you (honestly).
The resample method I use to take them from 2160p -> 1080p is lanczos2, which is sharper than some other resample filters. Thing is, when I look at the originals on flickr, they seem blurrier to me than they do on my PC. Weird. Probably in my head.... but that's why I use lanczos2.
Quote:1. You can always anti-alias further if you really want to. Just requires the knowledge and GPU power
2. Why stop posting images because of MY opinion? Not everyone will like everything. I only responded because you apparently expected people to say something positive about it... but I personally don't see the point in trying to play at such a high resolution if it means horrible jaggies... but I'm not everyone. I'll just keep my mouth shut from now on I'm sure there are plenty of people who would like to see how games look when played with that setup, so keep posting screenshots
