    It really does make a difference, and its not so complicated to edit. I thought the game looked a little rough, and the AA didn't work.. with those fixes everything is smooth, the textures are crisp, and your native resolution actually is the HD res, and not a scaled 1024 img.

    Hope it helps, and you enjoy such a great game.

    It's been working flawlessly on my pc for around 6 hours of gameplay. No framerate problems, no crashes or bugs.

    The game is absolutely horrible.
    Besides the horrible port with non-existent controls, the game is just flat out horrible.

    The game tries to act difficult by making everything more powerful than you. Enemies have little to no attack patterns so you can not learn on how to fight enemies. You just have to hope and pray that they do not do their one hit attack(which almost all enemies have) and you have a small window to spam left click until they die because the combat has no depth. This means you cannot learn from mistakes because there is nothing to learn. The level design is awful. The RPG elements are awful. Having to grind is an absolute chore. And yes you need to grind in this game. If you manage to power through an area and reach a boss without having high enough stats, then the game literally becomes impossible.

    I know people will say "omg 2 hard 4 u xddddddddddd" but there is a difference between a difficult game like Hotline Miami, where the levels are brilliantly designed and you can actually learn from failure to Dark souls where it is we are amateur game designers who want to make a difficult game but only making it difficult by making things unbalanced and having poor controls.

    And the excuse people have for the bad controls being there to make the game harder is absolutely retarded

    Invading peoples games in just your pants whilst wearing a sack on your head = Win.

    Glad I could help!
    God i hate pvp! Maybe because i havn't designed a good pvp build or what but i havn't tried either. Anyways people always use some magic thing on me that takes half my health or knocks me back and ends up with me getting killed because of it.

    It's not that bad while i do agree with you the balance as it is kinda bad sometimes as i guarantee you will not be able to beat a new boss on your first try because it is literally impossible. There attack patterns can only be learned by replaying constantly like with the four kings i have trouble distinguishing this one attack from another because if i do the wrong maneuver he just picks me and stabs me nearly insta killing me. And you only have like 1 minute until another boss comes in at the SAME TIME which is why i died like 30 times on the gargoyles because they would flame me and hit me off the roof and it didn't help when another came in at the same time. Although they usually do not act aggressive if they double team you.

    Everything you just said is WRONG. the enemies do have patterns and once you learn them, the game becomes a bit easy. and you don't have to grind at all if you get good enough at the game. haven't you seen the speed runs for this game? people beating it in less than a hour. poor controls? i'm not even gonna defend that. omg 2 hard 4 u xddddddddddd

    It is fucking hard. And yes, 2hard4me, but aside from that, I hate the game as a whole,
    in fact the difficulty is the only aspect I enjoyed.

    Bored the fuck out of me too. Found it non-intuitive and I dislike games that encourage brute force methods of completing them. I didn't feel the "triumph" or whatever whenever I beat bosses.

    Also, brown.
