  1. Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      Ok, I couldn't wait until saturday! 😄 @AluminumHaste the final boss was pretty bullet-helly though. 😕 Still, you might get into it. I hate bullet-hell games normally as well.

      Sure, they are different. That doesn't mean you cannot compare their difficulty, 'though.

      Also, Cuphead is not over-the-top bullet-helly. There are really only a few bullet-hell situations and in all of them, the projectiles are rather slow.

  4. I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.

    I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.

    ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.

     

    Update

    Actually, I have to revise my statement:
    I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.

    ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.

    Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.

      The amount of insults towards the team members and this community contained in Nort's updated status is a pretty strong indicator that something is maybe not right in Nort's head, don't you think? Also, I said "like Nort here maybe has".

      Anyway, the core message was that we accept everyone as long as they behave. Let's not get lost in the details.

  6. Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

  7. Finished Deathloop yesterday. My verdict:

    Arkane Studios showing off once again that they are one of the best in game design: Pick the timeloop mystery adventure mechanics of Outer Wilds and remix them, add "Dark Souls"-like invasions in the form that other players can play your antagonist Juliana, and wrap it all in 60s-stylized first person shooter with abilities and upgrades, and an interesting story to unravel. This culminates in such a unique gameplay experience that "Deathloop" would have deserved Game of the Year 2021 WAY more than "It Takes Two". Especially the invasions add so much tension to your playthroughs, it is absolutely exhilarating. That is, unless your opponent lags incredibly, which sadly happens quite often. Combine this with the performance issues many players experienced, and you know why the game did not win game of the year. It is really sad to see technical issues hinder such a masterpiece of a game from doing well. The only criticism I have with respect to gameplay is that the first shot of any weapon is apparently always 100% accurate, which enables you to headshot enemies hundreds of meters away using your submachine gun, but other than that the gun play is on point. All in all, just 9/10 due to technical issues.

      I wonder why they didn't use Cry-Engine or Unreal-Engine? Both were apparently used in Prey and its Mooncrash DLC respectively.

  8. While I did find Springheel's brushwork pretty questionable, I guess engine performance must also have come a long way during the recent five years, because I can safely say that the kind of performance issues that he's talking about in this video, just didn't happen to me when I fully opened up my basement with all its unoptimized brushwork. The framerate was capped at a nice 60 FPS no matter how I tried, and with visportals on top of this, and the complexities turned into "func_static":s, an uncapped framerate would just be obscene, at least for graphics cards only a few years old. I no longer have any worries about large areas and vistas - I'll just go nuts. It's gonna be fine.

      Go play No Honor Among Thieves. That's a campaign featuring one of the biggest and open areas of TDM. Performance wasn't always good on that one.

  9. Hi, can you add EFX to St. Lucia?

  10. The final solution for low-end GPUs:

    r_skibSubviews 1
    
    r_skipInteractions 1
    
    r_shadows 0
    
    r_ambientMinLevel 0.6

    tdm_lg_interleave  0

    If you don't get 60 fps after this then either your CPU is really slow or it's a map bug

    EDIT. tdm_lg_interleave is probably not required since r_skibSubviews supersedes it.

  12. I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.

      @Epifire the DLC is also excellent, but you should have the mechanics of the main game down before trying it. I'll just quote my Steam-Review:

      Quote

      The DLC is so different from the main game that it deserves its very own Review. It borrows the gameplay mechanics from Prey and wraps it all in a rogue-lite experience, which somehow works surprisingly well. That is, unless you're looking for a deep story. While each of the 5 playable characters you can unlock has a nice little story quest chain (that you also have to unlock first), there really isn't that much story to tell here. That being said, I still loved the DLC, as the 5 characters with their different skilltrees force you to play the game in other playstyles than what you were used to. The game poses quite a challenge at first, but after some time, you figure out its mechanics and can bend them to your will so that you finally escape with all 5 characters in one run. 🙂

      Oh boy, you could do things in oh so many ways in Deus Ex 1. Aside from that, you had actual stealth there, you had more melee and ranged weapon options and the levels were very open-world like, with tons of options to achieve your goals. Granted, that's not as much the case with the more recent titles, but I specifically meant Deus Ex 1.

      There is some stealth, but you usually only use it to open a fight with a bigger group of enemies. Except at the beginning, when you're still so weak that you try to avoid some enemies completely.

      Can't compare Tenchu (which is amazing on its own) to Sekiro 'though. Sekiro is really awesome, but I feel like FROM Software are overdoing it towards the end. I am in the final world and the bosses get really extreme now. Each battle is a test of endurance, because the fights take really long at your current rate of damage.
