News Comments > Trine & Trine 2 Editor Beta
1. Re: Trine & Trine 2 Editor Beta Sep 25, 2014, 10:25 HorrorScope
 
The reason we’ve held off releasing the editor to the public before has been quite simple. It’s pretty difficult to use if you don’t know what you’re doing, and there’s *very* little documentation or tooltips.

So did we make an easy-to-use version for everyone to enjoy? The answer to that is…not really Instead we’ve opened a wiki page at www.frozenbyte.com/wiki and provided some very basic instructions on how to use our editor.


So what you are saying is you held off for difficulty and lack of docs, but in the end decided to release it anyways with the same difficulty and lack of docs. Ok.

My 2 cents: Fallout 3 got the gameplay right, but Bethesda simply can't write dialog or create memorable characters to save their lives. New Vegas retained the gameplay and amped up the writing massively (which includes creates a gamespace with actually interesting social dynamics) and was a much better game for it overall. NV might just be my favorite Fallout, actually.
Yeah I think you're right on the money there. It's a shame too. Imagine how much better Oblivion and Skyrim could've been if they'd just had some decent writers.

Think of other things they could do a lot better... As good as they are and they are, they could be godly if they'd up their game some in a couple critical area's.

1. UI

2. A lot more skills available quickly. The magic system you could only do a few things. Melee way to basic, sure have basic swing but there should be melee skills to.

Indeed. The lack of a proper PC UI - given how much goddamned money they've made from PC players - should be considered criminal.

A stupid 10 skill bar would do amazing wonders of making combat a lot more varied. Even though I'd ask for even more. That is one the ESO has going in the right direction, a skill bar, even though abbreviated.

Looks ok, zero major improvements to the menus, inventory, or anything else PC players have been asking for.


That alone means sale for me to buy. I agree that is lazy and imo really takes something away from the game.

37.5k copies, ok, nothing amazing. Sort of goes back to what I say about Steam, being #1 doesn't mean you are selling hand over fist. Steam over 100 million registered, under 5 million own Skyrim, the at the top leader for Steam since its release.

Game has solid word a mouth, should end up perhaps nearing 500k.

Since the game was funded up front, that's all profit. You don't need millions of units sold when you fund like that.

Understood.

I wouldn't mind red-light cameras if they were actually designed for, a safety stand point. But they revenue tools, on the ones I've seen around me the yellows are shorter, and people tend to slam on their breaks the second the light turns yellow, or slow way down when approaching a green light because they're afraid of it'll turn yellow.

Increase the time the light is yellow, and only ticket the people that blatantly run the light. But if they did that I guess they wouldn't be profiting off it.

I've felt for a while now all lights at least in a state should have the same length yellows. Some are so fast, they are traps. I'd be up for a federal time for all yellows to be the same length.

Was this news like a year ago?

I'm of the belief that Blizzard lives outside the norm. Meaning if they made a good mmo, there would be a lot of people there to pay the traditional fee's. It's Blizzard, it is what it is.

No, the problem is the US system. Most places you have to opt in to be part of crap like that, in the US you have to opt out, which is bullshit.

Right.

And to many think we still live in the freeest country.

Still stand for the Anthem as we swear our oath.

We've become what we were warned about, what we didn't want to become.

Basically a mob protected by endless laws.

Europe right now is blowing us away in terms of consumer protections, we are more focused on corporate protections.

It's been this way for months.

Perhaps, but you could just go to the right and click "Forums" prior, which was a real no-brainer.

Definitely. For the foreseeable future a (high res) Rift will probably only make any real sense for multi GPU setups,

I'm starting to think we could be possibly talking ourselves into this.

1. People already have these, they like them, they work well without SLI.Sure better with, but it's not impossible.

2. Sony is working on their with mid-end pc's. They must be delusional.

3. Samsung using Oculus tech plans on releasing VR driven by a phone.

I'm saying perhaps we should wait and see before we just assume it has to be a monster system.

Early access seems to quickly become : Buy our alpha, which we'll keep developing while early access money rolls in. Once the money stops, so do we.


It needs to really really really really really quickly die the fuck out.

I've still had good success, I'd say research is more a key. It's a choice by both sides, I would suggest to some don't be so damn desperate if you can't handle losing.

But I'll still go back to, it's pretty easy to research to see how things are going and take any red flag as serious.

The only thing EA caught me off-guard with was when they started doing sales on games still in EA. At first it rubbed me wrong, but now since I know it happens, that is all part of that initial decision to buy into an EA or not. Now it is all that plus, hmmm maybe I should wait for an EA sale.

I'm ok with both Kick and EA purely on the belief many of these games being made would never be made otherwise and some of these are just downright coolness. That is why in general it is worth it to me.
