I realize it's much faster than rendering smooth shadowing... but it's just so ugly, it detracts from the rest of the game.
If they're not going to have true smooth shadows they should just drop the smoothing altogether, it'd make for an overall improvement in how the game looks.
Best posting in the whole thread (which doesn't mean the others are bad). These two things are gold - first, it distracts horribly, when I'm about to enjoy the cutscene, these "clothpatcharts" roll over the faces and stick there like I'm looking through the window curtain of my grandma. Second: I'd be fine with sharp edges - even if they were without antialiasing :D
- But this.. this
, this is like.. being nibbled
to death by, err…Vir, what are those Earth creatures called? Feathers, long bill, webbed feet…go "quack".
- Cats! I'm being nibbled to death by cats.
Now I'm being distracted to death by shadows. Uh... *roll*
Ps: Everyone reading this and NOT seeing/knowing the effect yet, do yourselves a favor and don't look for it. But I guess this warning comes too late. What has been seen...
