Can we just appreciate the quality of NGS scratch items?

So to start this thread off, I just want to talk about how innerwears for base pso2, and ngs have been ruined due to the game's faulty rendering engine. You see, prior to NGS, innerwears used to render perfectly, they used to have texture, and meshes such as ruffles for laced innerwears, and you could see fibres etc in the clothing, and the overlays (the colored designs would be used in conjunction with them.

However that seems to have changed, with the release of NGS. Old innerwears, including new ones released from scratches post-ngs appear as pixelated overlays that retain none of their textures. Some inner-wears that appeared metallic are now luster-less microsoft paint png overlays that are pasted directly onto the player's body like a tatoo.

It's not just inner-wears either that rendering seems to crap out on, even environmental textures like the clouds in the skybox have liver-spots, and crate textures sometimes do not load and appear as flat cubes with the overlay image pasted onto them. All of which are on medium to ultra high settings with zero changes. Accessories from scratches also do not load properly either. Some accessories like wings appear jagged, and low-res, and some accessories and camos have lost their partical effects.

Sega has not even considered acknowledging this rendering issue, not since ngs's launch. Which has lead people to come up with do-it-yourself fixes that don't always work such as switching to base-pso2, changing the graphics settings, and going back to an ngs block.

When is the rendering bug going to be fixed sega?

Shouldn't this be in the Bug Reports section, with a more accurate title? Though you're right that it should be fixed.

Right you are, I just posted a thread there.

A bait-and-switch topic. Interesting approach there.

Yeah seriously, the title confused the hell outta me.

Might be a you problem, my stuff looks nothing like that

I was going to say "lol this scratch is stupid, it's just PSO2 re-re-re-released stuff people bought years ago". Misleading title is misleading.

It's misleading because it's sarcasm. tee hee ♪ alt text

Hardly. The topic title focuses on scratch items, and its opening post is all about innerwear.

Good god that looks horrible. I haven't bothered using my old PSO2 items since NGS. The quality on them is just beyond garbage. You're kinda forced to use NGS stuff if you want anything that doesn't look like a pixilated mess. The only thing I may use are accessories from base PSO2. Makes me really regret not cleaning house completely and selling all my old outfits etc.

The dude has graphic settings on the lowest option.

This is on ultra high settings mind you.

It also effects textures on ngs exclusive inner wears too.

And this is where it went over the mountain here. Because the scratch items I posted and/or alluded to are in fact innerwears, and from the pixelated unrendered mess that they are in, there is no quality. But I'll ignore that, because I know that reading sarcasm on the internet, and picking up those queues is hard for some people.

Then here's a suggestion for a topic title in the future: "I think my innerwear textures look bad when I zoom in".

But they don't look that way on my machine. Recheck your settings

Mine don’t look like that, either.
