News Comments > Capcom Wreaks Havoc
7. Re: Capcom Wreaks Havoc Sep 2, 2009, 19:55 spindoctor
 
Because it's a proprietary format being used by nVidia to grab marketshare. If it was in the name of innovation then it might be worth supporting but the way that nVidia disables PhysX support when an ATi card is detected and has stifled DX10.1 (to spite ATi) has only hurt gamers. We need an industry wide approach that allows physics to be more than just fluff but to actually affect gameplay in a meaningful way. I have an nVidia card in my computer but because I have an ATi card as my primary graphics I can't use PhysX support. nVidia is punishing customers to screw over ATi.

My understanding is that Nvidia has offered Physx to Ati and they have refused to incorporate the technology into their gpus. In my book, the blame lies with Ati. And if Nvidia 'stifled' DX10.1, why doesn't Ati 'stifle' physx right back? That's not how business works, so try and leave the fanboy bullshit behind.

And for the record, Havok is also a proprietary physics API. Where is the outrage for using that instead of Physx?

I stand by what I have said all along, Empire is the first screw up by CA on so many levels.

Add Stormrise to the list, although I don't remember which of the two games released first. Yea, CA have seemingly gone down the toilet with their past couple of releases.

Why does Physx need to be boycotted?

I've been wondering if they'll ever make a real retail expansion pack for DoW2 or not.

Of course they will. However, when that happens, people will blame them for not supporting their game and instead trying to 'fool' customers out of more money for content that 'should have been in the game in the first place'.

Very well, let me try and make it less of a blanket statement.

Only idiots buy lifetime subs for a product/service that is yet unreleased and where the word 'lifetime' could, in fact, mean a few months.

You should look at Oblivion Lost 2.2. I think it's the best mod out for the game. Another one to look into is Stalker Complete 2009. Both are huge mods that change the base game by a lot, although I don't think they can work together. Check and see which one interests you.

3. Re: More on id and Linux Aug 23, 2009, 15:58 spindoctor
 
Some people seem to have problems with nVidia's drivers as well because they are not open source. They cannot digest the fact that a company would rather not make their work open source but still choose to support the platform. Since it goes 'against' the spirit of linux/open source, they refuse to use the drivers. It's whole different mess that has been created by the community themselves.

Your games are not good enough anymore to warrant another of those annoy-wares, Blizztard.

Oh my, thanks for the laugh. If Blizzard games aren't good enough for you anymore, it's time to stop calling yourself a PC gamer and move on to other hobbies.

Man, you people whine so much about everything.

For some reason, I can't watch the first clip, although the second one works fine. Anyone else having this issue?

how do you actually acquire unlocks?

it's still completely random. which means you just need to play more and you'll get them eventually. or you could go for the achievements.

There will eventually be a engineer update. However, seeing as it's a very popular class, it will probably be the last to get updated.
