in some cases, actually breaks the graphics (walk down the alleyways in QFG2 for a perfect example.) And like all filters that First of all, undithered mode is not a filter at all. And for the QfG2 issue, that should be considered as bug. Although I just tried it and walking back in alleyways worke...

I don't want people to get me wrong, I actually think the undithering is a neat effect, BUT it just doesn't look right on a lot of the games, and in some cases, actually breaks the graphics (walk down the alleyways in QFG2 for a perfect example.)

Another point from the pro-dithering crowd: Comparing the choice between dithering and undithering and using MIDI or PC Speaker is totally invalid. The choice between sound types was ALWAYS part of the game. When you installed the original way back in the day, you had that choice. The undithered fil...

I joined specifically to give my two cents on this issue. :) As both an artist and a hardcore Sierra fan, I have to adamantly state that I agree with MusicallyInspired in full. The undithered mode looks artificial and actually makes the screens look MORE bland than they did before. Those backgrounds...
