    Did they updated the graphics since they stopped ps2 and x360 support ?

    I was wondering if the game graphics have been uptade since they stopped ps2 and x360 support ?

    I came back to the game 3 mounth ago. And the graphics looks horrible and the game was really slow. So after 1 hour of playing i took "you cannot say the name" to have graphics that match today screens.

    Will dev team make HD graphics and 60 fps support one day ? Or the game is locked with PS2 limitations and old cathodic Tvs till its death?

    I play 1920x1080 on my 32" TV. Still looks amazing to me.

    Obviously, each to their own, and somewhat some experimentation, but these are my settings:

    looks like "drawing precision" is the new name for background resolution. ramp it up to max beyond your monitor resolution and the game will look much sharper, bassically gives SSAA (super sample Anti aliasing)

    No. There have been no graphical updates, except PC version updates that occured before the end of console service which added improved ability icons, and increased the resolution of the title logo & buttons, and the icons and font for player name plates.

    Only that ....
    Thanks for the info.
    I hope one day they'll update the graphics. At least to put them in HD. I'm not asking a rework of averything.

    The issue is the game was designed and built in a time when video cards had a small fraction of the onboard memory that they have now, so they can't just do this because the game was designed to use a certain amount of memory. That, and it would mean raising the system requirements which might cut some people off, as more disk space would be required and updates which add new gear or content with new graphics would take dramatically longer over playonline's antiquated update system.

    The game already uses a lot of space with the low res textures it has right now. Bringing them up to an acceptable quality for modern machines might double the needed disk space (or more).

    I'm not saying they shouldn't do it, because they should, but you should be aware that it would be a significant undertaking with challenges to overcome.
