That is simply cause it only emulates 1280x960 in 640x480. But if you watch closely, you see it works way better than anti-aliasing etc. + the textures are much sharper Oh, and I hope you set your highest possible res to 1280x1024 or 1600x1200 - otherwise it will still run in 640x480 and look 100% the same.I downloaded the glide patch, and it works. I used the "try hi-res" command, but it didn't give me anything new. The graphics look better, but it's still runing in only 640.....also, I saw the blue distraction lines the first time I played, but when I exited and started playing again, they were gone. however, the missile trails and explosions are still nice. strange.
