    Hi all,

    apologies if this has been mentioned before (did a search but couldn't find anything). I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed the writing on COD2 is fuzzy? It's not really a major issue and I can live with it, but was curious whether there were any settings etc i could alter to improve it. I'm only using a crt, so it could be just that - but apart from the writing everything else looks great!

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    many thanks

    The writing in GRAW fuzzy as a fuzzy thing on my CRT too :( *

    Still - it's a good reminder for me to speak nicely to the missus about that LCD... :)



    * this is my excuse for being cr&p at it, and I'm sticking to it ;) LOL

    on a CRT, needless to say you are playing at SD resolution. On my HDTV LCD and HDTV projector, all is well with the world and the writing is pin sharp.

    if you have to stay with SD, maybe use SCART... should be improved.

    Looks fine in HD. Allot of 480p material looks fuzzy, you need to invest in a 1280x720 display and output 720p for crisp writing. :)

    It's obvious you should be using RGB if you have standard def t.v that accepts it man. Composite is a blurry mess and that's the reason your getting fuzzy text.

    It's so gay that consoles are getting released with composite leads as standard instead of RGB :mad:

    Percentage wise I'd say it's currently running at 88% GH3Yne55!

    Yep... when I was using the scart that came with it, the writing was blurry and I had to have the lights off to play. When i upgraded to 720p using an VGA cable it was a hell of a lot better and pixel perfect.

    only vaguelly related (sorry mods!), but I'm connecting it on the grounds that it's my CRT / lead combo which is at fault...

    The wife - she just said 'yes' to a nice shiny new panel :thumbsup: :D :clap:

    Do I look that stoopid? LOL ;)

    Actually, I learned a lesson and used the girly trick of 'look how much I saved' rather than 'look how much it cost'.... :D


    Silk - I can recommend several weeks worth of housework / lifts / doing the shopping / washing etc etc etc - this should hopefully resolve your fuzzy text in the same way :cool:

    Lol, cheers for the replies fellas!

    The nice shiny HDTV is coming later in the year, when i can afford it, but for now (sorry if this is stupid) I've got the scart that came with the 360 (well composite cables with scart adapter jobbie) connected to my RGB scart on my TV, but from what i gather everyone's saying is the the cable ain't RGB so I'm going to need to get a new one to clear up the fuzzyness - that about right?

    cheers again

    Yes your still getting composite but via a scart adapter. RBG will look 10x better.

    Get the Microsoft Advanced Scart Cable, that will solve your problem, £17.99 in most places!
