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

subpar gta graphics

i would just think a $260 million video game could tighten up the jaggies and muddy textures but that's just me

Look at this video..

 

 

 

Looks amazing on there. Look at his GPS line, it isn't one big jagged line.

Nick did you say before you have the Xbox slim?

 

 

No I am on a ps3

I think I'm losing my mind lol.

 

I just was speaking to a mate and showed him this video and he said his does that as well but never really noticed it until I showed him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5RBOv361IM

 

Is it possible that we are just used to pc?

 

Then again... The people on YouTube don't have it as bad as we do.

I dont play many ps3 games, pretty much gta and nhl14 and the last of us. Never had this problem before in any of those games. Then again i play allot of PC games but never really had these problems before. Thats my video i find it insane that my game looks like that, try driving around town with all that bloom and edges bouncing that glare\bloom around. It gets very hard to see when driving fast.

Guys, regarding the possibility of bad batches, unless the person you're swapping with lives on the other side of the country, or another state, the discs will be the same. Game stores don't have manufacturers allocated to them, there will be central manufacturers for a region, and all stores in that region will get discs from the same place.

 

Think it's more likely a combination of what your TV is doing and each persons perception. Some people will notice the problem more than others, and some TVs will enhance the problem more than others. I don't know if there will be a definite solution that works for everyone with this.

True, I was playing this game on a 42" LCD and all I see it laggy lines all over the game. I switched to my 22" LCD, it was hardly noticeable. I will just play the game again when it comes out for PC or next gen... probably the last game I am playing on a PS3 anyway. Looking forward to what rockstar does with next gen!

Guys, I have this issue, i spent ages trying to fix it i have a benq gl2450 24inch monitor, but then i started to realize maybe the game just looks like this for everyone -_-....after i watched some videos, seriously check these out ...

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riBd57iEMl4

 

this guy has the same jagged edges as me, and it seems like a lot of people here aswell, i dont know this is how my game looks i thought the game was bugged but i think the games just like that :|

 

and this ...

 

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-why-we-cant-recommend-GTA5-PSN

 

Look at the DISC VERSION, which is meant to be the one WITHOUT PROBLEMS, Look at all the JAGGED EDGES LOL! as hes driving WTF? maybe a lot more people have this issue and they dont even realize?/

 

Also they seem most prevalent when its very sunny which is like always, I really like when it rains ingame becz then u cant see them. Anyone else thinking the same?

 

 

My game looks a lot worse then those videos.

 

At least the cars looks smooth in those.

 

 

Guys, I have a PS3 slim and the disc version.

Can someone tell me if the disc version from the second video above, is how the game should look like ?

Mine looks identical.

 

So if that's how it is supposed to be, I need no longer to find a solution for better quality.

Looking through the 9 pages now, i noticed alot of people complained about Sony bravia TV's. I also have one and mine looks horid, i was talking to my next door neighbour who used to work for Sony and she said something about Vision float or something, not sure if you have this setting on your Sony's but i don't

I simply can't believe that another tv is giving you a better resolution. Could be, but I dunno. I'm about to find out in a few weeks.

sorry guys,

 

thats just the way the game looks.

sure there are differences between different tv sets. but those jeggy outlines are simply the result of missing anti aliasing filters.

 

for the xbox 360 version i can tell that setting the xbox to 720p and let my tv do the scale to fullscreen helped a bit. but expect no wonder here.

 

what gives a much better resolution and less jeggy outlines is:

set your xbox (via HDMI) resolution to 1360x768 and disable the fullscreen scaling in your tv settings. what you will get is smaller picture with black bars around... but in a "pixel to pixel" resolution. this is close to the internal rendering the xbox is producing.

 

this only shows what could be since it is no option to play the game on half the size of your display.

 

what rockstar could do for us is fixing the filtering of ground textures on xbox360. compared to the ps3 version ground textures are often blurry

Tbh it's not the ground textures that bother me, it's the huge amount of glare/jaggies/blur etc etc. It makes the game unplayable for a large amount of time and f*cks up your eyes seriously.

 

And other people deffo do not have this to the extent we do.

 

As I said earlier, look through the lense of the snapmatic on your phone in-game. Look at a area that is especially jaggy and look through the snapmatic, can you see the difference?

yeah i know your problem isnt the ground textures.

 

the snapmatic example shows me that its just the way it is.

looking through snapmatic changes the quality cause the engine doesnt need to keep up a certain framerate. (you dont drive, walk, shoot, jump while in snapmatic....and the rendered frame is smaller compared to normal situation cause of the cellphone frame). while in snapmatic there is a huge ammount (amount?) of cpu/gpu resource unused... so in that situation it can be used to render in a higher level of detail!

 

edit: just checked. the rendered frame in snapmatic isnt smaller. my fault. nevertheless there is enough rendering power left to power up this specific scene

Spent some hours today tweaking my tv setting and it made a little change but not much I've come to the conclusion that the only way it will get fixed for me is the pc version ill be snapping that up for sure.

Well I suppose that makes sense, ahh man this seriously blows.

 

Just don't understand how some people are getting much better levels of display. Mines just terrible. I'm going to get a new TV anyways.

can you post a screenshot please? no detail shot... something like the whole screen.

 

a lot of people are saying that they dont have any problems... most of them cause they simply dont care! im veeeeery sensible when it comes to resolution and stuff..

i checked the game at my friends place, he said it would be great and had no problems with resolution.

 

i realized that he has more or less the same picture as i do. but its just no prob for him.

Yeah, in my case definately. My two older tvs are both lcd and it looked fine. Very disappointed with the LED one... Stuff usually looks amazing.

 

ill upload a pic in a sec once my dog has calmed down and stopped diving all over the place.

 

 

The stuttering makes the game nearly unplayable.

If that's how the game looks when you play it then it looks fine to me...i mean ,no offence or anything but,people who play a lot of PC games might just get used to it and when they start playing on a console,they get surprised by the graphics and how they are not "that good/smooth"...just my 5 cents :p

The fact that it is more modern and more high tech internals then yes. My one has a ton of fancy crap which the old ones dont.

 

I just dont understand the stuttering. On the old tellys its silky smooth

yeah the pics arent that bad. but iphone shots tend to blurr problems away... i also have lots of jaggy outlines at daytime. and i dont compare this with pc games... i only compare with other xbox games. gta5 jaggy image is bit like gta 4

 

the game just doesnt has this red dead redemption like crispy look! (xbox360, red dead on ps3 was horror)

I think the "red dead redemption syndrome" is because there was a LOT less going on. The city in GTA V is very busy. Red Dead redemption ALWAYS looked awesome. But then again riding through the desert with very little to render.

 

I was commenting this to a friend and he said the "always on for the camera and stats malarky" might be eating into processor power and thus causing the issue. You never know.

 

Peter your pics look fine and as you said if you run pc games at stupid resolution and ridiculous AA of course its going to look "poor". You can compare every single console game to a pc game and if you have a decent pc its always going to be better.

 

The first pics i posted on my old LG telly look great. And i seriously thought it would look ok on my new tv. But was very wrong.

Nah you said you didnt. A few people seem to be coming from high end pcs to play this game on a console and then well.. arent impressed.
