News Comments > Early DNF Access for All Steam Borderlands Owners?

Yeah. I have this access key as well. Found out about it on reddit a few days ago. Only purchased the original borderlands.

The Civ 5 post was helpful. Finding out that my 275 (and a few other nvidia cards of that same era) have trouble with the Terrain Tessellation helps. I was baffled as to why this game was such a slow down on my system since I am in the middle of the min and recommended specs.

I want to see a mod based on Conan where you can build the Tree of Woe, crucify your opponents on it and win.

Does DOSBox work well? I've heard mixed results. I'd really like to play through Tie Fighter again, maybe even Syndicate.

Dosbox works great in my opinion. Not to mention you can of course tweak some of the stuff. I like to alter the scaler settings so I get quasi new graphics through blurring of pixels and such hehe. Super2xsai.

Anyways, you can check dosbox's site some where for reported compatibility and such.

I only ever managed to finish the final mission of WC once.

I remember there was a branching mission structure (depending on if you won or lost a mission), but I can't remember if there was more than one ending.

I do remember playing through the original and both expansions.


Yes, there were a few endings even in the first. I played just about every WC there was. It was one of my favorite PC games in its hay day.

Try the widescreen mod:

It may not work with the GOG version of Planescape Torment yet but if it doesn't, they'll update it soon.

Just watch the gog forums. They fixed the BG widescreen in just a matter of days.

And so did Oblivion and Fallout because it was merely possible to add nudity from moddig.

Really? I don't remember seeing media outrage about any mods for those games. There was an early "mod" for Oblivion that let you see boobs but again, the controversy there was because that stuff was already in the game. You just needed a mod to unlock it. There have been far more explicit mods for both Oblivion and Fallout 3 and nobody cares.

In any case, has Bethesda shut down all mods for their games? Nope. They support modding because they realize that mods really don't have any negative impact on their IP.

Oh it was nothing as insane as the GTA, but thats one of the things Bethesda was having trouble with for the game rating. It was all around the same time and a direct result of hot coffee.

Actually it's more the latter.

If someone releases a Duke mod that completely sucks it damages the brand. If someone releases a Duke mod that completely sucks and has a hidden part where you can molest children, well... Game over, man, game over.


Logic at its finest. The whole point being, they dont want there IP messed with usually for "various" logical reasons. Not that I am a fan of mods getting "FOX'd". Been there myself ages ago. I think our mod was the second or third to get FOX'd. (Predator Quake hehe)

I never really understood why IP owners so often decide to shut down mod projects using their IP. If the mod isn't being sold and the author doesn't claim to be the IP owner, what's the problem? All the mod will do is bring more attention to the IP.

Potential lost revenue. It could detract from there own products. Especially if the mod is better.

This will absolutely get shut down, but let me reiterate how much I love that game. DNF has gone down a drama-filled rabbit hole, but I would gladly - gladly - pay for a D3D remake done with a current day engine.
We need more games that have fun while kicking ass.
Stuck in a naive dream,
Ray

I second the paying for a remake in modern engine.
