Getting a Terrible Resolution

Question

Jimmy7685

My game looks BAD. ive made sure 480 720 1080i and 1080p resolutions are enabled on my playstation 3 but the game still looks so aliased and ugly, anything farther than a few car lengths ahead has REALLY jagged edges. I can hardly play it, so maddening. Is this game just ugly ?

 

edit: also I AM using HDMI on a 1080p capable PC Monitor

To be honest you seem to have no clue what your talking about either, There is a issue some people are getting, I thought the game may look like this but i have a friend whose game looks better then me, which is everything i need to know theres something wrong, The game doesnt look amazing considering the hardware its on.............GTA 4 looked better, Many games i've played on the ps3 looked better on my console, Also its people like you that instantly think your in the right and everyone else is wrong is the reason why issues like this are sometimes ignored, So you dont have a problem you dont need to come in the thread and derail it by saying "no-no everything's perfect".

 

Why is this forum the last place you should be asking about TV settings about GTA5? ...its GTA FORUMS? about GTA? this is the best place because your most likely going to find someone with a similar set up to yourself....

 

finally setting RGB settings to Limited is better then full, Clearly you have no clue what your talking about so i wont explain why.

The shadow issue is a glitch and is not a limit of the console because NOT everyone IS getting it..................

 

 

THIS!

 

This is the FIRST time Iam encountering such thing. Recently played The Last of Us and there was nothing unusual. Everything crisp and clear with no jiggies or "mesh" textures.

 

This is clearly not my PS3's or monitors fault. Since I have tested on my brothers 3D LED Samsung and its the same there.

Most of these screenshots look waaaaaaay too bright, reduce your brightness wheteher it being tv or in game.

 

Sharpness should be at 0 on TV, the game was not designed for additional TV sharpness

Hi everyone , I just registered to share the problem I encounter : I completed the story ( currently @ 75.3% ) on my X360 Slim 250Gb , the game looked amaaaazing within ~30hrs of gameplay ( like it had 4xAA)..noticed a minor lag when speeding through the city and I deleted the Xbox System Cache , hoping it will make it run flawless even in crowded areas.The game started to look like crap after a few days ( did not change any settings on my monitor ) , very jagged ( I was even playing with Sharpness set to 60 on my Asus 22" Full HD LED 1 ms GTG , and now set to 0-10 value of Sharpness the game looks so much worse than before with 60 )..I'm more of a PC Gamer but love the exclusives on the Xbox , I was shocked of the graphic quality until I finished the game but now..jaggies everywhere , like it's not the game I finished 4-5 days ago :( ( graphical point of view )

 

PS : No texture problems or anything like that.

Phillips and a Samsung 3D LED TV. Same result.

 

Also the ONLY solution I find so far is reducing the contrast and if the TV or monitor supports it also using "smooth" in options. My work HP monitor has it, but unfortunately my home monitor does not lol... Reduced contrast with the 720p setting and the "smoothering" helped abit.

This is just the way the game looks. Seriously I have done countless test and viewed several of my mates playing on there games. R* also advised me that its normal. Some people notice and I guess some people don't. I also have this problem but now I'm just used to it go enjoy the game. :p

I'm now convinced that there's a legimate issue with jaggies. Like Paradoxical my game looked great the first 2 weeks, yeah there were jaggies but it was nothing compared to now. Suddenly it's all I see. Jaggies everywhere, not just in the distance. Everything is flickering and shimmering.

Something is definitely going on :(

 

Edit: It looks like this (skip to 0:25):

R* got back to me about this. Try this stuff i guess if you are still having trouble.

 

 

Hello FranklinClintonG,

Thank you for contacting R* Games Support.

We're sorry to hear that you're having issues with one of our titles. Below you will find some Console Troubleshooting steps which may help resolve the issue. These are the official troubleshooting steps provided by Microsoft on their support site:

Before troubleshooting, please check the following:
1. Turn the console off and on.
2. Unplug all power cords and accessories, and then plug them back in firmly. Make sure all connections are secure.
3. Update your console software (this article from Microsoft details how to check if your console software is up to date http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/system-updates/system-updates-info)

Clearing the System Cache:
1. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and select System Settings.
2. Select Storage or Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
4. Select Clear System Cache.
5. When prompted to confirm storage device maintenance, select Yes.

Clearing the Game Data:
(Prior to clearing the game data, ensure that you back up any Save Data so it doesn't become deleted)
1. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and select System Settings.
2. Select Storage or Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press A on your controller.
4. Select Games and Apps.
5. Scroll through the list until you find the game you want to clear the data, once you find it press A on your controller.
6. Delete any game related files which are not "save" files, if these files are deleted they cannot be recovered.
7. Once all of the files have been deleted, go back to the Xbox Dashboard Home.
8. Reboot the game.

If this is still happening let's try this on a second 360 to see if the same issue is occurring.

I'm running my xbox via HDMI to a 27" iiyama, I've also tried it on my 37" LG tv they both seem to render really low resolution and have real issues with colour depth, so shadows are bluish, grainy and lack detail.

 

Xbox dashboard and other games render fine, the game on my PS3 renders fine too.

 

I'll try and get a better shot but here's an example I have right now (high res warning):

I think you've got the wrong reference levels for your display.
Go to Sytem/Console Settings/Display in the Dashboard:

Normally Standard works best but if not you can try one of the other options:

And you can also check of your HDMI Color Space is on RGB:

After each change you've got to start the game again which is annoying but I'm pretty sure you end up with a good result.

GTA V runs best in 720p on console. Please disable any other resolution for best experience.

Enabling 720 resolution on the PS3 made a huge difference for me as I had 1080p selected perminantly on my console to force the PS3 to upscale. This makes GTAV drop to the base display setting of 480p and the text becomes practically unreadable as well as the poor graphics. So make sure 720 is checked in your display options on your console. Do not de-select 1080 as a display option as this will simply stop the resolution being available to other games that can use it. Providing 720 is available to GTAV it will not default to 480 resolution.

 

Once you are displaying GTAV at 720 resolution I believe you are seeing the game at its best and any jagged edges you're focussing on are simply because it's a 7 year old console and not a PC/PS4/XBone! :miranda:

Yeah, 720p is what you should set your res to. It's jaggy and lowres from time to time, but being 7 year old hardware with only 512mb RAM i thing it's pretty awesome what you're able to pulloff it. Also, if you have a SSD, installing it will make the game run so much smoother and loading times will be much shorter. I have about half the loading times, even better in SP compared to his.
