    Anyone notice their game looks like crap now?

    I noticed recently (as did half of my LS) FFXI was looking really good. Contrast seemed to be very nice, all the colors seemed more vibrant, environments looked cleaner, and just the whole game looked alot better.

    Now after this patch, not sure if it had something to do with windower, but things look washed up again, colors dont look as vibrant as they used to be...and I dunno it just doesnt look right to me, some others in my LS are noticing this also. Any input?

    On another note, anyone have tips on tweeking your PC to get the most out of this game, even if its just a simple resolution or other trick?

    I haven't seen what it looks like on my computer, but I was on my sister's comp today and ran her taru to Boyahda tree for a party while she was cleaning osmething up, everything looked kinda weird. I dunno if it's because i'm used to WoW graphics now or maybe something really is wrong.

    The last update increased the brightness of in game text (names on people, in your PT box, compass, that sort of thing. With this one they turned it back down, it seems even darker than before although it could just be cause of the contrast with how bright it was over the last week.

    yup noticed it too... game showed virtually no pixels whatsoever after the update (much like WoW's "edges", but with ffxi's high poly count) then after the "fix" it all looked normal again :/ I thought my radeon was screwing with me.. but apparently not. lol.

    GIMME BACK THEMS NICE GRAPHICS!!!

    The text looks exactly the same as it did 3 years ago. WTF are people talking about? I demand pics.

    maybe a test for 360?

    to make my earlier post more specific, ON PS2 they did stuff with the brightness of text, made it bright then dark again. The difference was extremely obvious, if it affected you, you would know for sure unless you're legally blind.

    I haven't noticed graphical changes on any other aspect.

    I think it was a ps2 thing only, right? I remember Russta or someone mentioning it only happened to ps2.

    I would believe the 360 test. I am dead serious though... my graphics got better/smoother and I was like "WTH!? Gotta get some sleep this can't be right..." and then when I woke up, same thing... then after the "fix"... bye bye nice graphics ;_;
    And for some reason I was stupid enough not to take pictures <.<; I can't believe I didn't do that... /slap <me>

    EDIT!:
    I found a pic of this... this was the only thing that I took a screen of during that time... only cause while being on my mule, all objects graphs went crazy... well, see for yourselves. (never happened before... happened twice during the time when I had the good graphics, haven't happened since. no changes in card drivers or anything.)

    Yup exactly what I meant...75% of my LS noticed it also.

    A number of us noticed it on my LS today as well. Seems to be a PS2 only thing, though I'd heard of some PC people noticing it as well.

    When they did the update that added Diabolos, the brightened the fonts and generally the game looked a lot better. When I logged on today after the fix, it looks even worse than it did before.

    Not related to patch, but anyone know how you cause that graphic glitch?

    by the looks of those two pics, its a graphics card issue, not saying your cards are going bad, but they could have done something for the xbox360 that affects graphic cards in a way they are not supposed to work causing the scewed graphics like that

    exactly my point.
    as my game went just as heywire as the above posters (see my picture at page 1), I assume they tested 360 compability, and somehow that wasn't 100% compitable with our graphic cards... this does however point towards that we are right.. they DID in fact boost the graphics just a notch, for a short while. those who didn't notice just might've not payed attention, or it didn't affect their games any. lol... I hope the graphics will be back (except for that glitch..)
