Looking for High Quality Fate / Stay Night pictures.(Spoils)

Unread post by Mkilbride » November 10th, 2008, 5:54 am

Ok, so I want the picture of Archer, in front of his Unlimited Blade Works, front or back, maybe even both. I'm also looking at some other possible Wallpapers.

I googled abit, and couldn't find any HIGH quality(Ex, above 800 x 600, the games default)

I found one that was 1024 x 768, but sadly, it was all written on. I can't find a DECENT, at least 1600 x 1200 sized picture of said actions. I went into Full Screen in the game, and the pictures look really clear though, so I figured I could just do that...

So I try the Print Screen method. It always comes out 800 x 600, and when I use windows "Stretch" effect, for Wallpaper, it becomes horrible looking, lots of fuzzy.

I tried Fraps also, because it works in the game, but it also only takes the pictures @ 800 x 600.

Now, for some reason, in the game, if I go Full Screen, the imagines still look GREAT. Hard to notice a difference between Windowed...but if I take the image OUT of the game, VIA Fraps, or PRINT SCREEN, regardless if I put it in Paint or Paint Shop Pro, it comes out ugly looking.

So I was wondering why when I try to take a picture, it doesn't take it full scale(I realize the pictures themselves are 800 x 600, but when the GAME scales them, they still look beautiful, but when windows scales them, they look ugly)

I'm not quite sure how to do this. My Desktop is 1920 x 1200, so 800 x 600 looks really bad when Windows stretches it, but in Fate / Stay Night itself, when I go Full Screen, the images still look really nice.

I've tried changing the Scaling method in my GFX card drivers, but that has nothing to do with it, it seems.

I'm probably out of luck though, right? I'm just annoyed that the Full Screen in the game's picture looks so nice, while if I do the same thing, Windows turns it to crap. I considered using Adobe to touch it up a little, but that requires some sound investment time, and if I don't have to do it, I'd like not to, lol.

Thanks for any help.

When you go to fullscreen, the resolution changes to 800x600, so there's just the same exact amount of pixels on your monitor to match the image.

Anyways, here you go:

Tinypic reduced the image, unfortunately.
I'll PM you the larger version which I don't think I should link to here thanks to the server it's on.

For those wondering, the scan's size is 3626x2728 scanned from (I'm guessing) an artbook.

Thanks. It's slightly different from the original, it's bit brighter, but it's easy to deal with that. Strangely, for such a large scan, the quality seems quite low when it scales down to 1920 x 1200. It's SO much more bearable though than a 800 x 600 scan stretched,
