So firstly bear in mind that the pics you rip from Animal Crossing are tiny in size, I have like 50 pics and I checked, on the SD Card this is less than 8 mbs. So the pics are poor quality to begin with.

Anyhow,  I play Wii on different TVs depending on where I am and I noticed that when you capture AC screens, it takes the pic according to the TV you are using, ratio, size, quality, HD or SD.





Notice what HDTV does to the picture? Look at the bird Pave, jaggy, bitty, dull, stretched. Just all around, it adds a significant nastiness. Pay attention to the text in particular, a big giveaway. I've often seen screens of Wii games and funnily enough the good screens are how it looks on an an SDTV and frequently, whoever it is captures bad screens and that is how the game looks on an HDTV. Spooky.


Look at the HUD, the writing and where the money is written in the top right hand corner. See the jaggies on the diving mask or around all the items. Ugh


This pic is awful, look at the bird(s) faces. Look at the text! The f-ing text is jaggy!

If you dont play on an SDTV you might even be left with the impression that the system was weaker than GC. What a terrible situation. Until someone gets off their ass and makes a decent mass market external upscaler, as far as I can see the only option is to get one of these fancy Toshiba Regza ZR Tvs, which supposedly upscales any signal coming into it with Resolution + technology.

I have the DVD player with the same tech and it seems to work on DVDs at least.

Both pics look the same to me. 

I remember IGN saying SD consoles look a lot better on a Plasma HDTV than an LCD HDTV.  Plasma supposedly has a much softer and less jaggy look than LCD.

Look at the words "VIVA"

I use a plasma HDTV

I added another pic and description.

Look at the bird, Pave character model closely. Its all jagged and bitty.

Sorry, man, but they all look the same to me; they're all equally jaggy.

Yeah you do see a difference, but I do not really care. I mean I am enjoying Castlevania 3, so Wii graphics are fine.

Yeah, it's called Wii.

WTF Raven. Sad If you can't see the distortion and pixellation on the writing, you're either trying to annoy me, or you need to have your eyes checked.

I see the pixellation, sure. But I don't see the difference between your SD pic and those HD pics. They all look the same quality to me.

Yeah I see what you mean. You can adjust the settings but you can never get it JUST right.

I was playing MGS3Uneasy not too long ago and UGH!

They're both SD, one is just widescreen...?
