GTA: San Andreas - PC

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is it really supposed to be THIS ugly on PC? Or is it just me?

I'm running 1600x1200 with EVERY option on its highest, and it still look ugly as sin...

Is there some sort of fix/patch for it that I haven't heard of? Or did RockStar Games just skimp out?

Wow, I didn't realize that. That does suck. I'm not sure about a patch fix. Do you have your video card quality settings manually fixed where that could maybe make it look better? That does look crappy though.

Nah there's nothing really. It's just like that, it looks alright on crappier screens but match it with a computer screen and it's crap. More of a console rocker game though

Well it has to be said that GTA was never a graphically good game..and yeah san adreas does look a bit poo.
post #5 of 12
Yeah, the games are supposed to be like that, it looks even worse on the console versions, so...
post #6 of 12
thats probably how its supposed to look like... What about your graphics card? did you do any ocing on it? could fluctuate on some games...

I don't play GTA games, period. They seem pretty boring to me. Nothing beats a good 'ol FPS though!

They did not increase the polygon count of the models for the PC versions, so the somewhat blocky appearance is normal. They do use higher res textures than on the consoles, which is a marked improvement.

Your main issue though is that you do not appear to have antialiasing turned on, I see lots of severe jaggies in your screenshots. AA is not on by default, you have to turn it on. The game looks much better when it's on, as most games do.

Well clearly it's not working on your PC for some reason. The jaggies in your first screenshot are horrendous, that horizontal railing behind the restaurant booth looks like a set of stairs. The jags are so big that it doesn't even look like you're even playing in a high screen resolution.
