Blur on Characters

Postby #fookin.RedOctober » Mon Mar 17, 2014 3:06 am

I've noticed that character sprites are blurred compared to their surroundings. While this may seem trivial, some of the 'reskins' I have been doing are suffering in game which is causing some annoyance. Is there a way to turn this off in game, and if not can we have one please? Or is it a side effect of being on a low end system?

I'm not noticing any blur here.
Mine's a low-mid spec laptop.

Same here in terms of spec, but I look at the character sprites compared to the background and it's obvious. I'd just like to see some of the detail I've put in, I can see the shells on the armed guards jackets, why won't the cross I've stuck on the chief and wardens jackets appear in the same way?

Please provide some screenshots of your problem... the sprites for the characters look just as crisp and sharp as all the others to me.

I've done a screen shot. shopped the sprites next to the characters so you can see the difference.

How are the sprites without the mod?

You could send me the modlink and I'll see how it behaves on a more high end PC.

Might it be that it is the size that makes the blur? You know that those pixels just get bigger if you resize a small icon to a large one, aka zoom in...

Doesn't account for detail loss' and the (really basic) skull reshaping, loss of pixels to bg colour, subjective appearance of pixels. Nor the Iron Cross on the Riot Shield having missing pixels, and the original cross on the Chief and Warden either showing the horizontal or vertical bars, but never both.

On resolution 1980x1020 it does appear to be slightly more pixelated than the normal characters but not nearly as blurry as on your pc. The mod looks quite good

Awesome! Thanks, that now puts my mind at rest. Right, I'll get back to doing the UI, more characters and stuff like that.

Thank you very much!
