Wish all the uniformed parrots thinking that Fortnite is Epic's main source of revenue would just shut up. Do a bit of research yourself ffs.

I am aware that Epic have other revenue streams, but it is news to me that Fortnite is not the main one. Do you have any more information? I found this https://www.telegraph.co.uk/gaming/news/fortnite-earned-annual-revenue-game-history-2018/ but it is not current.

All that says is that there's a lot of hope around using unreal engine in other non gaming sectors in the future... nothing concrete yet.

However, it did mention something I found interesting, PUBG is paying them a percentage in royalties of all sales because they use unreal engine! LOL

I mean... one could just wait until release and reviews to see if the SP content was screwed over from decision to add MP after launch. And at that point make the buy decision.

Drawing attention to them is a good way to get those assets removed...

Also, valve has had similar leaks like this before, sometimes it led to things, sometimes it didn't. Just depends if the desks are wheeled long enough to anywhere that matters.

Valve did say something about they had a couple games due to come out within a year for the index, as I recall. A VR stand in place wave shooter with HL assets would be an easy way to do one.

Picked this up when it went into EA. Pretty bog standard TD game IMO.
Hopefully they have made some changes to make it more interesting.
Same, and I gave them some feedback to that effect prior to it hitting EA, that they really needed to emphasize any distinguishing factors. Haven't tried it since.

Edit: Has a 75% mostly positive rating. So I guess we'll see. Most of the negatives are saying similar things and are from earlier, nothing too recent.

News Comments > Galactic Civilizations III - Villains of Star Control: Origins Released

This story reminded me to search for news on star control. Somehow I missed that the legal stuff was amicably settled. That's great news, because yes, I'd still like to play the additional future star control game from the two guys. Sounds like it's a few years off... which is basically what I thought, that it was in the concept stages still.

News Comments > Stardock, Paul, and Fred Settle Star Control Lawsuits

I don't know how I missed this. I was just searching blues for star control news since I was wondering if anything happened.

Glad to hear it was all resolved.

Stardock dropped all its alien name and character trademarks and all parties have dropped their oppositions to each otherís trademarks.

Both sides recognize each otherís copyrights and will not challenge them in the future.

We were able to come to a very specific understanding on the alien characters and races ó how they look and act. Stardock is dropping all trademark registration of the alien names and won't use the described aliens without permission from Paul & Fred.

Well that looks an awful lot like what Brad was saying he wanted to do prior to all this crap.

There's some free services that give disposable emails that are live for only a few mins, google will find them.

I use spamgourmet which lets you have unlimited email addresses that forward to your real address. It's free, and I've used it for many years.

Price reduction?
HAHAHAAHAAHAAHAH.
Exactly ONE game has done that.
And most publishers/developers aren't going to, because either they have contracts signed that they can't differ prices between stores, or they won't want to cannibalize sales that way.

Blue,
The game is already patched to 1.07, past 1.05 as of several days ago.
The way this story is worded implies they haven't yet and are about to.

Can also see this quote from linked story:
"To force the update just restart the Steam client. It should be now the 1.0.5."

2006 was DX10 so no still 8 years
I wasn't trying to argue against the 8 years, I was trying to point out how small a percentage is going to be stuck in DX10 vs DX11.

However, if we are going to debate it, geforce 4xx series came out over 9 years ago, not 8.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_400_series

And I still agree on your overall point, not a lot of them around anymore.

Ok, you are right. I didn't know about the geforce 405 that didn't support dx11. Although so few people apparently own it it's not even listed in the steam survey under a line item.

Doesn't change the overall not a lot of people affected by this, that you also said earlier.

Though my lifetime warranty evga was finally updated to a 960 from the 470 that I had, that was replaced like 4 times first lol.

That's cutting off a huge chunk of their mobile/laptop customers.
But I doubt it affects the bottom line.

I'm going to guess it isn't a huge chunk otherwise they wouldn't do it.
About 3% ish of average PC gamers
https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/

Versus 90% DX12 capable GPU (of which 25% stubbornly aren't on win 10 yet), and 5% with DX11 capable GPU.

Keep in mind this is really prior to vista (vista was later upgraded to DX11) so really just XP, and win 7 launched with dx11.
That's 2006, which is at this point like 13 years old.
Is a 13 year old laptop even going to run fortnite at this point?
DX11 came out 2009 which is just 3 years later. So you are talking 10-13 year old laptops (or desktops), a brief 3 year period.

I can understand not wanting to move on from win 7, but even that is dx11.

Graphics card wise, I believe that's geforce 4xx series. My just replaced 9 year old geforce 470 was capable of dx11.

Why are people talking about $1300 cards? The 2070 is like $450 or so, and I picked up a 2080 for $650 or so. Those will do RTX just fine

Also, by the time this comes out, there will be the next gen of RTX cards out. I plan to sell mine and make that step up, and it shouldn't be much difference in cost. I used to keep my graphics cards for many years, but I'm going to try the sell and buy route now to upgrade.

"result clearly represents a strategic victory for Alex Jones." How does using someone else's copyright without permission then losing in court represent any kind of win? Then again, this is the alt-right, where up is down and black is white, real news is fake, so I guess yeah...in their minds it must be a major victory.
I mean... says right in the sentence above why they claim that, that it was such a tiny amount of money compared to the initial ask. Apparently they even made posters with the image, so it's likely he made more than the settlement in ads and revenue. It would have been popcorn fun to see this go through to trial, and probably cost the infringer in the hundreds of thousands.
