Default Re: Equipping pistol reveals hidden uber vegetation AA!! WTF?????

hes referring to the fact that on crts, as u increase your resolution, you 'effectively'(not technically) decrease your pixel pitch making jaggies less noticeable. this occurs because your increasing resolution while maintaining screen size. hes just too dumb to explain it in a way that makes sense, because he doesnt understand exactly whats happening. that said this doesnt rly make his claim of pistol aa any less retarded and moronic. also the slight amount of aa he gets from playing at 1920x1440 on a 19inch crt isnt comparable to the amount of aa gained when u downsize a pic from the former to 1280x960. completely different methods at work here. playing at 1920x1440 on a 19 inch monitor just means that smaller pixels are being used to construct the image. downsizing however is downsampling an entire image and using all the extra pixels for blending and sampling calculations. the 2 arent even comparable from a quality standpoint
