A side effect of applying a lowpass filter to the entire screen (which is what you're doing) is that the parts of the screen that are fake-blended using pseudo-hires appear sharper than the unblended parts. Look at the fence posts near the left and right edges--the part of the post that's "behind" the text window has pixel-sharp edges, while the part that isn't is blurred.

ETA: the difference between the flames in the blended and non-blended parts of the upper left screenshot is even more obvious.

Also, it would be nice if you posted a screenshot of SD3 under your renderer for comparison.
