I've seen the screenshots.

They don't correspond to my own preferences as displayed on my hardware (the
rendering on another screen may be different depending on pixel density, RVB
repartition, gamma settings, etc).

However as I wrote before those preferences are subjective and if there is one
thing I've learnt since working on fonts is that if you show 3 different
screenshots to three different people they'll all choose a different one as the
crapiest and will be convinced the two others share their POW.

So that's not conclusive.

Post a screenshot of what you consider good and people like Behdad may tell you
how to achieve this kind of rendering. I've stopped playing this game long ago.
