26. Re: No subject Aug 13, 2005, 03:23 Beaner
 
Ahh finally...a big franchise moving its title OUTSIDE the box. This hasnt been done in a full out real time FPS since Tribes. Really looking forward to this. If they pull it off and the netcode works well supporting 20 + players with very little lag (Torque can support up to 64 and runs prett smoothly) this could be an awesome game. And of course with ID backing it up, awesome.

Eff Vivendi and EA.

And regarding the physics in BF2 I agree, it sucks for the most part.

9. Decent game with the worst eff ups ever Aug 13, 2005, 03:06 Beaner
 
Man its unbeleivable just how bad the errors are with this game. They take something thats would be pretty good without all the damn bug, compatibility issues and funked up ideas (ranked servers, locked weapons) and muck it up even more. I've dropped this game.

Actually name 1 game that has even come close to the teamplay that ET requires.

Nothing surpasses Tribes in CTF gameplay, nothing. Speed, long stretched out battles and chases...nothing yet compares unless you like running around in enclosed maps. Vivendi is just too damn clueless to market and produce the franchise properly.

The bind commands you use in games like BF2 and ET, the commander map if BF2 etc. These all came from Tribes.

60. Re: A COD rip off? Aug 11, 2005, 21:59 Beaner
 
Geez how can you compare Quake 2 with COD. Two different style of FPS games. Quake 2 is one of the ultimate deathmatch games with great mods. COD is more of a warfare team based style FPS. Tribes was really the big first in that arena, not COD, not BF.

I think we all expect a better visual impression with the game, but in the end its about the gameplay. So who knows. Plus they are moving Quake more toward a warfare style game versus just plain deathmatch (Quake: Enemy Territory) and I look forward to it.

I'll bet the Quake 4 MP will be a lot less bug ridden compared to the stink bug that is BF2 and the upcoming COD 2. Not that BF2 isnt a good game, but geez the bugs, the ranked server thing, locked weapons ugh. Raven and ID wont pull that kind of crap.

and regarding the offset engine...yes its a very early demo which doesnt really prove anything, but damn it looks nice, and the concept of a "true" fantasy FPS sounds awesome. In regards to U3 levels of scale/performance, that Is still to be proven. I highly doubt unreal 3 can render large immerssive terrain with 20+ players even with the eye candy set on low. Plus Unreals netcode always stank until Unreal Tourney 4 and even that has that "Unreal" choppiness. Thats an area where the Torque engine excels.

Doom 3 is good. Could be better, but you must admit, even compared to Unreal 3, The offset engine looks awesome. Im just impressed that it was done by 3 folks, not just the art, but engine and tools. The game concept sounds awesome as well. Makes things like Gears of War seem pretty crappy.

Third person ugh.

53. a better looking engine. Aug 11, 2005, 21:25 Beaner
 
Unreal 3, Doom 3 engine bah

Look what 3 guys can do:

I will say, at least with Quake, the Mulitplayer game and netcode should be stellar. If I had to deal with the BF2 bullshit...well..hell.

Whats known or stable about Unreal 3. Its as unknown as offset until its in the hands of consumers.

8. And how much does Unreal 3 cost? Aug 9, 2005, 03:21 Beaner
 
Wow, this is awesome. To see small groups of independent developers doing stuff like this VS the big commercial goliath is great.

Who says Unreal 3 is the big thing. Bah.

I hope to God Adobe doesnt eff up Macromedia. Macromedia Flash is King. Not only is the video codec for FLash awesome, but Macromedia was working on Flash paper which would essentially be a far superior format to the klunky PDF format.

Imagine no client app needed. The document simply displays in the browser like any other flash element.

4. patents are business Aug 1, 2005, 03:24 Beaner
 
Its humuorous how folks will immediately slam on MS for anything. If you think MS is the only company hungry to patent things, then you're clueless.

Patents are gold to tech firms. IBM, HP etc hold many patents and are clamoring for more. Even Google is trying to build up its patent portfolio.

This is business, if you arent sharp enough to see the future vs your competitors and dont act on it fast enough ..cough cough Unix then hey you lose out.

anyone know what engine this is using? The netcode is pretty good almost on par with Torque. But hey Torque can handle 60+ players.

Folks get infected because those who play San Andreas are mostly kiddy console players anyway. If they did such a thing with the likes of Half-Life, BF2 there wouldnt be so many dummies thinking a legit copy of the game could be compressed down so much.

Agreed. On top of being a graphics hype fest, it turns out to be a dissapointing 3rd person shooter. Blah.. No wonder its being released on a console.

25. tester who? Jul 22, 2005, 21:41 Beaner
 
1. who are the so called testers for these things?

think BF2 is a CLASSIC example of what happens when big business takes over a smaller organization and gives them deadlines....crap is released and then the massive flame onslaught is launched seconds after its release...its all about money..not about us, the consumer. who makes the business what they are...but im just amazed how dumb we are...buying this stuff up...still. If the engine in your brand new 2005 VW/Dodge/Ford/Chevy/SAAB etc blew up every 2 blocks, would you let that slide?

Now you know why Tribes players have been so crabby since 1998. We've been dealing with this from Vivendi for the last 7 years. Ever since they folded Dynamix and scooped up the franchise. Many of us do like BF2 lets hope the pacthes can fix the many many problems.

61. Re: PS2!!!! XBOX!!! Jul 20, 2005, 17:37 Beaner
 
Ah, the joys of PC gaming. Kinda makes you wish for a PS2 or Xbox, huh?

True consoles are prone less to these probems because the games are built for specific hardware, but on the downside, console games are much less sophisticated than PC games. MP PC games are far more sophisticated and far more invloved and fun. Until the make a good console with keyboard and mouse support forget it. (Hey Microsoft are you listening?)

You console guys have no idea what real mulitplayer gaming is all about.

I wish Dice would just use the Unreal engine for their next BF game. At least that would fix the horrendous hit-detection problems. No wonder none of the serious players like Fata1ity bother with this game.

Lol, Unreal 3 hasnt even proved itself yet. You want a smooth engine that can support large numbers of players, vast terrain and good hit detection go with Torque, specifically the new TSE.

http://www.garagegames.com/blogs/8863/8055

It will be intersting to see what ID does with the Doom 3 engine when Quake Enemy Territory is released. Why do we car about Fata1ity and why would a quake player want to use the Unreal engine. bleh!
