I got a HDmi cable the other day, and i mostly play san andreas.. But it doesnt look all that great, sure its playable but graphics look weird in some places, especially where there is alot of shadow's.. I figure this is because of the fact its displaying through HDmi cable and HD wasn't even around when san an came out.. Thus modern games look loads better on it (played NFS hot pursuit on my tv and it looked georguous)

But is there any settings in my Nvidia control panel that i can change to make it look at better?

Do i have anti analysing on or off? gamma correction? Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias? I don't even know what half these setting's do, anybody know which are the best settings for playing on a 720p tv?

A hdmi cable, its a cable that run's through my pc, to my tv and i use it for playing san andreas on my 720p HDtv instead of my pc monitor, but some of the texture's look weird sometimes (especially area's with lots of shadows).. If i go into the Nvidia control panel it lets you turn things on and off like anti analising.. and im wondering what settings are best for san an when playing on a HDtv.

Emm... no idea. But I'm pretty sure SA wasn't made for this sort of thing, not the PC version at least. I doubt the GPU likes it any better ether :P

That's what i feared :( I mean it doesnt look too bad but compared to my pc monitor lol, where as i think need for speed hot pursuit i think looks better or just as good on the tv as on the monitor, but that wud be due to the fact its a new game and HD capible

Cmon rockstar, give us san andreas HD!

NVIDIA Anti-Aliasing: On (Depends on your GPU)
1920x1080 Resolution for SA
Visual FX Quality: Very High

Cmon rockstar, give us san andreas HD!


There IS an HD mod. But you need a good GPU and CPU for that...

Hot Pursuit is a very well optimized game.
(ironically it's engine was built from RenderWare, SA's engine)

Anyway GTA SA has an anti-aliasing option too.

I'm enjoying the new HP, better than the shit they've been making past few years

San andreas looks good on my tv. Its just when it turns night time, and textures in places like the dersert it looks weird >.< so my guess is its to do with shadows n lighting

True. But it has great graphics and it's very well optimized.

@Red_Squirrel_UK

Maybe it's the TV? Maybe it doesn't like certain colors? I've seen it happen before.

I didn't mean for antique PC's -.- it was the only game that ran perfectly (max graphics and frame rate, no stutter) on my 9400GT. It's a great port, minus the controls.

I hear you lol. HP for 20$ on Steam seems like a fair price but since it's EA the multiplayer probably doesn't work :P And if it does it's just a matter of time before they shut it down.

And everybody here hates HP cause they are Rockstar fanboys :P Not like that's any surprise since I was one too.

@MrGTA

A PC from the 80's can't even run GTA III -.- And HP is good shit. Mostly. Some of it...

Everybody hates EA. But at least they pretend to be on our side, Rockstar are just flat out ignorant.

And ''HP sux'' with no good reason just proves that you haven't even played it...

Do you like ANY need for speed game's? Because if you don't even like the nfs franchise as a whole then of course ur not going to like HP.. To me hot pursuit feels more like one of the older NFS game's, which is a good thing. Time attack race's are pretty boring but cop chase's are teh shit
