TRIBES Vengeance Q&A, Video

There's a Chris Mahnken Q&A on GameSpy.com talking with Vivendi Universal's producer on TRIBES Vengeance, the upcoming TRIBES game in the works at Irrational Games. They go into a great deal of detail about what to expect from the project. Additionally, FilePlanet (registration required) is offering up a gameplay movie from the game, showing off the rag doll physics that add realism to the behavior of bodies.

Amen a person, I agree completely. But I'm a rabid Tribes 2 fanboy so I'm completely biased. I just can't seem to get into FPS'ers where you can't fly.
Tribes ruined/spoiled me..

I played BF1942 for a while but then went back to T2, Ahhh to fly again! (with a jet pack, not only in a vehicle) It was WONDERFUL!

Well it already looks better than I thought it would. When I first heard they were using the Unreal engine I immediately thought "oh no". It seems like they've adjusted the physics nicely and skiing seems to be really smooth...even in such an early phase of the game. Call me crazy, but I think this game will be a lot more fun than Half-Life 2 & Doom 3. I can't wait.

[VGA] Awesome!

I viewed it with Quicktime 6.3 without problems. If it's not working, you probably have to update your version of Quicktime, or you b0rked your video codecs somehow and screwed up Quicktime movies.

As for the video, it's pretty neat, but the bodies are way too "jiggly". They should tighten it up a bit and then they'll have something cool looking. Also, I think there's something ugly about the player models in flight. I hope they improve that, also. Other than those 2 complaints, it looks like a Tribes game, so that's a plus.

Even if it ends up being UT with jetpacks, it'll be fun to play. The ragdoll effect looks 10x better when you shoot and kill someone else as opposed to watching yourself die in 3rd person view.

I re-downloaded via Bitorrent and I get the same crap...doesnt play (WMP). I also tried it in quicktime and Divx. No go

I'm running WinXP pro. Anyone who has a solution, now would be a great time to speak up

I just played it succesfully in Quicktime.

Man, I now have a giant jones for Tribes. Forget the ragdoll physics. I forgot how cool skiing is. And nailing someone in midair with a disc.

Can't play it either, on WinXP / MS Media player. Does anyone know what codec this needs?

I don't know why they release video footage this early on in development. They seriously need to tone down the ragdoll physics. Also, for some reason the death animation was alway a stupid series of flips. They need to up the gravity for the corpses maybe. This game should be good when it comes out, in a year. Till then, keep the lid on the footage. We've already seen ragdoll before, and better than that. Less hype, more work.

I think they went overboard on the models muscles and such. They had to make them fatter to get all the detail in it seems and the one guy's butt looks like eric cartmans, haha.

Over a year away, we'll see.

I can't play the video either; it won't play under WMP 9 or Divx player 2.1. Weird.

This is early stuff, the ragdoll physics are bound to be tweaked quite a bit. Remember the game is still over a year away.

And hey, they may be bouncy but at least they have backbones, unlike the tangos in Raven Shield (prior to patching, at least).

I just downloaded this and it wont play. Its showing up as an Mpeg. It doesnt seem to be corrupted so I'm wondering if this is supposed to be a Flash based deal or what..

17. (Ragdoll) Physics Aug 1, 2003, 13:03 denniz
 
Maybe it worked for UT2003, but it looks kind of crappy to me to be honest. Seemed like gravity was 0.1 because everything kept bouncing and bouncing and bouncing. Also, because muscle tendencies were lacking in any shape or form (real ragdoll eh?) you get to see the same flips over and over again. Already boring after about half a minute if you ask me.

If T-vengeance wants to promote this as a feature they better put in some more work to the physics. If you ask me, I thought the dying scenes from T2 as well as T1 are much better. As well as the complete blowaway to bits from T2! Yay!
