    Indeed. Still my favourirte game and small compared to Beth and Obsidian (New Vegas). I want a game I can enjoy every moment I play and when its finished I want more. I don't want it to go on so long, I stop playing because I can't take anymore. Beth, Obsidian (NV) and Fallout 2 are like American restaurants serving so much food, you can't finish unless you are a compulsive eater.

    Someone would have made some kind of Xbox GoG for easy PC ports if there isn't some technical, legal, marketing etc. justification for making it unlikely or impossible to just straight up put PC game ports with mouse and keyboard on it. WoW being the biggest one I can think of.

    thing is, they should have made a lot less possibilities for choices of classes and abilities and focused on making the c&c drivel function with that. now they're sitting there with 40 classes and try to figure out how to make a varied experience for each class all the way through. biting off more than they could ever chew. when the game is finally released in 2 years people will know how far off the target these guys were at this point in time.

    It's easier to do it this way. Not to say it will have better results.

    2 years? Nope. Maybe this demo we hear about will be done in that time.

    I don't agree will all your reasoning but this update along with many others show the team is really clueless about software development. Can someone really think that once you have a demo done you are 99% done? More like halfway done, especially when you don't even have the GUI design solid, eight years into development.

    one might argue that since vince is doing all the game design, the rest of the guys might as well update what they're working on but that sidesteppes an important problem: the game designing is going to slow. vince is slowing the project down, hamming it up on the message boards.

    Well, but what is he designing? He is writing, or so I guess. That being the case the software part should not get held up at all, but it doesn't seem close to done. Halfway done is more realistic. This game could still be "almost done" in another 10 years.

    And the comment about playing. Seriously, I can't understand that. I know the game is more about content than gameplay, at least to Vince, but it's still hard to credit. They may as well have titled this update "by the way this game is never coming out, in case you didn't figure that out several years ago."

    writing? the guy could have written four novels by this time. no i think it's got more to do with a lack of ideas when it comes to concrete things like quests. that's the hard part, that's the part that needs some brain.

    look, vince is a good guy but he's a bussinessman, a pr guy. just like brad wardell he's managed to drum up a long lasting boil of excitement in a lot of people, the problem is that he's also doing all the game design by himself, and that's a problem. they'd need a jon shaffer to step in at this point.

    How's your Dragon Age mod coming along, Swedish-Drog? Still playtesting all the battles by yourself?

    What he said. In 90s it was somehow possible to play X-Com and Command & Conquer on PSX. I think that real PC games should invade consoles again.

    Just look at this:

    We reduced the number of drawcalls. The model was split into too many pieces before (it was done like 5 years ago), which in skinned meshes it affects performance too much. So we reduced the number of separate meshes and textures.
