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

Okay let me know if it fixes it for you dude. Are you just going to install the "install" disk on the USB and play the game via the disk drive still?

 

As well as the Jaggies do you get motion blur? And really bad textures at night, on dark clothes/buildings/cars etc? Like oily and stuff?

Yep just the install disk.

 

Nah no real motion blue really. But when I'm driving through the city it lags a bit... Night time looks alright not as bad as day.

 

The motion blur could possibly just be your tv.

 

Also the map... If you look at the bottom left hand corner is your map laggy? Mine lags the tiniest bit and when I out GPS on even the purple route display is jaggy?? Wtf haha... It has to be the install

The thing is that turning the sharpness down does NOT remove the jaggies.

 

Turning down = Makes the image blurrier, which means that you still see the jagged lines just as well, but with a lot of blurr.

Turning up = makes the image much sharper and with it (obviously) the jagged lines as well.

 

They are ALWAYS there. They just are either blurred but still visible as hell, or sharp and very noticible.

 

Trying to find a sweet spot does not work, at all.

Yup even the GPS routes on my minimap are jagged too, f*cking weird right?

Finally someone who knows what they're talking about. Exactly mucking up without the sharpness does jack all.

I understand that. The hardware is very old. But i'm talking about massive jagged lines not only on the distance, but from 10 metres and beyond.

 

Hell, even when im driving my car the bottom of my rear bumper is VERY jagged.

Obviously it can be solved because there are people that DON'T have them. Christ almighty stop going on about 8 year hardware it's obviously not the issue.

So is this normal or no? lol

 

It's either the fact that I am playing on an old Ps3 or my TV. I can't imagine having an older ps3 would give this affect though, I assume it would cause framerate issues but not problems like this.

I have the same problem as all of you, playing on a 50" TV, I went to display settings and unticked 1080p and 1080i and it fixed it for me, looks good now, obviously not as good as GTA 4 PC version with icelaglace.

We need more info than this mate. "Fixed it" how? The aliasing/jagged lines went away completely? it smoothed out? Please go into detail.

 

Also, can you take a screenshot or even a photo with your phone with a Before and After please?

 

Just so we can make sense of this.

 

Thanks.

Okay, now I'm trying to set it up on my Samsung syncmaster 23" monitor. Settings on 720p. Looks better because the screen is much smaller...

 

Still looks like sh*t though

Could it have something to do with the older xbox hard drives? Do they have a slower read speed that's causing bad performance? Mine is super old, anyone get these issues with Xbox Slim with the square black hard drives?

Using xbox slim and sony bravia 32in. Same problem i've spent hours trying to fix it but no luck go gave up and figured it must be just the way it is. Went around to a mates for a beer and his looks ALOT better than mine with his slim and 46in samsung. I then took his copy of the game home and it looked alot better with my set up and his game not as good as his 46in samsung but alot better than my copy of the game.

 

Soooo could there be bad copy's of the game floating around?

Hi Guys,

 

Just joined as i have the same problem, i have installed the game on my 360 and i play on a 6 years old 42 Toshiba with HDMI. The game simply looks like GTA IV..maybe a bit better but years away from the videos we have been watching prior to the release. So disappointed. I have seen screenshot of some other people where the game does look good so i know there is something wrong with my set up and reading your posts i see there is something wrong with the game.

 

I wrote to Rockstar also. Hopefully there will be a guideline to follow..

Hmmm weird stuff.... I've tried everything under the sun at the moment and the game looks like crap.

 

I have taken my copy back to ebgames and gotten a new copy and it did the same thing. I'm thinking of getting a refund and buying one from a different store maybe.

 

My brother has the exact same issue. But he's playing on the older Xbox
