News Comments > Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Revealed
2. Re: Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Revealed Nov 21, 2017, 10:36 Darks
 
This is nice to see, but rather disappointing since I know this engine very well when we created the Eye of the Beholder mods for this game. I'm not seeing much in the way of enhancements. Where are the graphical enhancements?

All I'm seeing is a 4K res update and UI fixes. They could have at least gone in and added some newer partical effects and fixed up the look of the spells.

Come on Beamdog!!!

For those who are interested. http://www.moddb.com/mods/eye-of-the-beholder-ii-ledgend-of-darkmoon https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/module/eye-beholder&#65279;

Fucking PVP is ruining this game, taking away from development time that could be spent on adding more Areas and missions to the game.

I'm with you on this one. I love the game, but only for the co-op aspect with friends doing missions. It's really good in that sense! I suppose adding PVP is just a quick way to get more sales. But to the point of some people, if you can't implement an amazingly fun PVP experience, then put your resources on what actually makes the game fun, and that's solo/co-op missions.

No, PVP got added because a lot of people got on the UBI forums and whined about the lack of a PVP game. it took the devs 6 months to release this and its total shit, not a lot of people are playing it because the games been out to long and now you have PUG taking up everyone's time that plays PVP.

I'm annoyed as can be about them wasting all this time adding this crap mode just to try an appease some of the masses which took away from time and resources that could have added even more content to the game. Just annoying as all hell.

I only can say that I've done the beta for PvP.. and it was something this game never really needed and it's not something the game does well.
It's very much like For Honor PvP, and you can see how many people are playing that. October's average was just under 1200 people.

Thou shalt not question Ubi's decision to test the loot box waters.

Seriously tho... couldn't give less of a fuck about PvP either. I'm soloing and PvEing this bitch all the way and it is quite fun but also quite frustrating sometimes due to controls issues or actually too good AI (dudes with submachine guns hitting ya right in the nut sack from 300 yards away in the middle of the night while you are in cover with nary any nut sack even sticking out in the first place). On the other hand: Better AI is better than shitty AI so...

Yea, that my one and only real bitch about this game is the lack of a cover and concealment in the game. I got this really kewl Ghillie suit and it servers no purpose except for a cosmetic look.

When you get to a certain level or prestige or whatever it is called, enemy indicators are removed from the radar. Even if you tag them with a drone.

I'd fly into a town with another human player that was lower prestige level and they'd be screaming "What are doing, there are kinds of a (whatever the orange guys are) around us!" And I looked and my radar was clear.

Oh, okay, your doing he prestige thingy, well I dont care for that system in the game it really servers no good purpose.

I tried to enjoy this when they brought in the Tier system after you hit max level. But that resource grind is just so damn boring. You aren't doing anything fun besides hitting convoy after convoy after convoy so you can level weapon. And then you eventually get your enemy radar taken away from you... awesome. I get it, you're trying to make it more of a challenge... but it gets to a point where it just isn't fun anymore.

What are you referring to when you say you get your enemy radar removed?

That never happens, the only way you will lose it is if you put the game on its highest difficulty.

It was one of those games that was fun for a while, but none of the developers really understood what was fun about it. And patch by patch, they eventually managed to remove the fun and were left with a product that nobody was willing to give them money for any longer.

That nerfing patch pretty well killed the game for many. I put a ton of time into this game up until that patch. Then I lost total interest in the game as did many others.

Plus the fact the devs only seemed interested in selling cosmetic costumes and new heroes that pretty much used many of the same abilities as other heroes in the game. And the lack on new content and story missions and new raids killed this game.

And their greed, thanks Gaz!!!

Hopefully this is a also a step in the right direction that EA gets put on notice by Disney. One can only hope!!!

Didn't see anything in the patch notes about disabling that stupid photo mode. I'm sick of seeing all the screenshots all over the map. And no, turning them off every time you use the map is just even a bigger PITA. Same with playing offline. Whichever asshole thought forcing this scheisse on people so needs to be fired!

Yea, thats annoying as hell too seeing all that shit on my map. I could give a shit less about who took what photo of themselves jacking off.

So, UBI says that the DRM is not causing any issues with high CPU usage. I think they are full of shit. There's no way you double down on the DRM with Denuvo and the VMProtect they implemented over top of that DRM and not have some kind of CPU usage hits too.

The game was not designed to have these kinds of draconian DRMs layered over top of the game and then tell us that the game not being effected by this crap.

If UBI wants to prove that this DRM is not causing issues with high CPU usage, then show us real time monitoring of the game with and without the DRM.

Because thats the only way I'm going to ever believe anything they tell us.

This screams of intimidation to the max, I hope the court slam CBS for this. This is nothing more then a fair use of the IP. Especially one thats as old as this one is.

Hopefully, it's a pretty blatant attempt to punish someone for standing up for their rights. Using stills from a TV show is fair use, using photographs from a photographer isn't.

I guess we will see, I'm only referring to how the Industry as a whole is acting towards much of this stuff.

All this knee-jerk over-reaction and PC, social media bullshit is getting out of hand. Netflix have just lost a lot of respect with their handling of all this.

That's what happens when people have waaaaaay to much spare time

Flush men is the new black so followwww

So people not wanting to work with a child molester is out of control PC? The fact it happened years ago doesn't change what happened. It also means he got away with it for years, and it only came out now because an environment exists where the victim won't automatically be stiffled.

I dont condom any of this type of crap. but the real question is, why is this now just coming out? Thats what urks me to no end.

Whats the real motive behind this coming out so late and now?

Most likely he tried to extort Spacey for money and he refused. and didn't get the payout he wanted.

This had better be an update for our current version of the game and not some sham to try and make us pay for this.

Edit: So, I just checked, this does update the current engine.

Not here, I've had no issues capping to 60fps. everything maxed out on a 28" 4K monitor. with a 1080Ti FTW3

Pretty awesome game so far. but yea, not enough time to play them all. Been playing Destiny 2. thats been a really fun game also.

How convenient for you.. More info would be nice, or you could just go on being vague in your own little bubble of happiness.

I'm not here to write reviews, I gave a brief description of my experience. go to PCGamer and read their review if you want details.

Hah, so cliched.

Have seen countless people, no matter their rig, including multiple streamers I've watched, struggling to have consistent 60 FPS.

But of course fanboi #1 here has "no problems whatsoever". Didn't see that coming.
