Freeware antialiasing. Yuk

Yuk... There is now antialiasing on the freeware version.
It might be my screen, but it makes it look blurry and bad.

Thanks for the update anyway.

That shouldn't be happening, none of the interpolation settings have been changed with this new freeware version: Are you playing on Mac or PC?

The upscaling does lose some fidelity, but not much.

PC.
I have version 0.15 and 0.20 running next to each other right now.
Actually, it seems that the difference lies with the writing only. Everything else is the same. Maybe have you switched the police with an antialiased one ?
Well, it might be a matter of taste, but I really am not comfortable with antialiased writing. But, if it is just me, then lets keep it the way it is...

I can confirm that there is some kind of distortion going on with the new version. I am using on Windows 7.
The right side is v0.2 and left side is v0.15. There is a noticeable, although a bit nit-picky, difference between the two. It doesnt look like anti-aliasing, but it does look more blurry. The picture is rather large, so this is just a link.

You guys are right, it's the font aliasing. We were losing definition on some of the mouseover popups, I think this helped although I agree it doesn't look as good side by side... The in-game sprites aren't losing definition too, right?

The in-game sprites are fine, I just checked.
