Well, unfortunately the shots weren't at the exact same position, so a good compairson isn't possible.

Regardless, two thing stuck out to me. My shot (GeForce4) looks clearer on the hillside to the right and the ramp. Yours looks clearer on the underside of the curved hornlike structure in the center of the shot.

Then again, mine was also closer, so it's really not a perfect shot.

Did you take that shot precisely at the spawn point in the full version? If so, it looks like they changed the spawn points very slightly...

Update:
Oh, yeah, and your tree is much clearer, but I'm willing to bet that's due to a higher detail texture.

That's most likely why the tree looks better Chalnoth, as the trees look the same in my game as in his shot (full version UT2003, high detail settings, GF4Ti4600).

I'm not sure about the clarity of the close in textures on the spikes there (his might be clearer than I usually see, but I haven't paid enough attention to tell for sure), but the hillside in the background is definitely blurrier than I've been seeing.

imo, the blurrier distance areas aren't too big a deal though, because I'm not usually looking that far out when playing the game (other than to notice red / blue moving in from that direction )

Edit: That's a shot with 16x aniso on? I'm using only 2x and still not getting the details in the distance blurred like that. Is it 16x quality, or 16x performance? (I wouldn't think either would result in it being blurrier anywhere than my Ti at 2x, but maybe..)

If that's the case, then it might be another texture quality issue. This really isn't a good comparison...

No, not a very good comparision I guess. Also note that that's an mspaint jpeg so it got blurred pretty good.

fov could be different, resulting in the different perspectives.

Deafault is 90 right? I had changed mine to 110, but then back to 90 for that screeny.

Ah, that's what the problem is.

No, the default FOV is 85.

Okay, then, when you post the new shot, I'll update my URL.
