I recently downloaded 1.5 and noticed that BZI 1.5 video intro looks much cleaner then even the 1.3 intro and it doesn't really make much sense? Considereing BZI is much more dated then 1.3 why does the intro video look like absolute utter crap on 1.3?

BZ2 uses Bink Video, and AFAIK BZ1 does not. Most of BZ2's cinematics are in a rather low resolution.

I do believe the video for 1.0-1.2 looked equally as pixellated. We just notice it now that we've been spoiled by good video codecs and HD resolutions.

He's comparing BZ2 to BZ1, not 1.3 to 1.2. Confused me at first as well, considering he specified 1.3 :P

I was confused as the BZI 1.5 intro video was very clear video while the 1.2-1.3 intro was so crappy looking in comparison. If BZII uses Bink what does BZI use? Thx.
