High resolution textures: can we get a clarification on this?

Just tried the intercom trick myself, its clearly pulling the higher resolution textures for an instant. The difference in clarity and crispness on the armor is pretty astounding. Definitely not just lighting.

I have to agree, I've been over those images zoomed and it's just a change in lighting.

I'm thinking about re-installing it via Origin, where it downloads the whole game again.
Isn't re-installing via DVD the same thing? You're reinstalling the entire game again.

PS: how can you guys not see the difference between the blurry no detailed texture and the cleaner higher res texture.

Anyway no use in arguing over that. We can all agree we just want the damn textures fixed.

If you think this is just lighting then all of you blind people have no say in anything.

They've owned up to it... they've already acknowledged it's a bug and a fix is coming. This has been an issue since beta and they've been working on it for a while.

Seriously...that is NOT a lighting change. A lighting change isn't going to magically give you cleaner textures. There is actual detail in the clothing. It's not just drawn on.

Yeah they owned up to and fix it alright... They renamed medium to high and drop high altogether. Time is running out or them to show prof that is being worked on or have it fix. 13 or so days till I hit the unsub button is all I'm saying, and no I'm not giving my stuff away because I'm hoping that in a year these issues are fix.

That being said your before picture isn't nearly as detailed as I think it should be. You may want to research your video card control panel, there was a setting that was artificially limiting the graphics for some people's cards.

They've never claimed that they fixed it, and I didn't imply that they did? Until you see a patch note that says "High Resolution textures are functioning as intended," they haven't fixed it. All this other stuff is minor little stuff that people are misinterpreting.

The fix will come when it's ready. Obviously it isn't yet.
