I know this might be old news to some of you, but for us PC users it's a handy thing to know. If you've got a high-end gaming machine (or even mediocre) you probably installed AC2, put the graphics to full then played the game. But today I discovered if you turn off the 'Post Effects' option under graphics it makes the game's LOD significantly more visible.

The Post Effects essentially blurs everything over a certain distance away. The further away, the more blur. I did a comparison screenshot with and without post effects. Not only can you more clearly see far away objects, but Ezio's robes seem slightly clearer too.

I used Altair's outfit for this pic, because with the long distance detail the graphics reminded me more of AC1.
So here you go, WITH post effects:

I never liked post-process effects anyway. Most of them only make games look less realistic imo. Especially motion blur and depth of field are silly things.

The point is that with or without Postfx the graphics makes me wanna cry. What they did to the beautifull graphics of AC1 is a mystery to me. Hope Ac brotherhood will bring once again epic graphics.

Then just turn Post-Effects off. The OP didn't need to start a whole new thread to justify to us why you choose to do it.

Well there should be not only a new thread but the entire domain to point out how attrocious the graphics of AC2 are. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
