    Will we be able to go into SA with the 2d client?
    Ermmm wow jus wow OMG WTF wow, anyone else notice that the 2d client has better graphics that are umm 9 years old?

    WOW!

    2 mins to get outa the inn ok great let me just move oo wait I didn't say go that way, hmmm why can't I listen to music what the heck is going on cntrl alt del OMG OMG that much memory wow really?

    Really I had no idea it was going to be that crappy no idea at all I never ever woulda thought it could have been that bad I kinda new it would be bad BUT never thought it would be THAT BAD, literally this was the worst thing I have ever had on my desktop EVER since I had my first ATT pc years and years ago.

    Aside from a particle system that isn't just animations what does this thing got going good?

    Ughh...EA/Mythic already answered that question. The answer was an obvious yes.

    And for a title saying "this is not a rant," you really spent more room ranting about the SA client when all you needed was one sentence asking your question.

    Although you are aware that it's only a beta, right?

    Huh? Ranting over an unfinished product. Hilarious.

    Also it is intended to use that much memory....It uses that much memory to make the game more fluid. Do you even know what using more memory actually means for game performance? You are sort of arguing something that is beneficial to the game but calling it out to be negative. And, what viper said.

    This is particularly funny since something like 80% of the graphics ARE 2D GRAPHICS! They are the exact same art. It does look a bit different due to shadows and whatnot ... but someone who takes one look and rejects it because its not 2D ... well, suffice to say I am wasting my typing time.

    buddy the game is flawed the entire SA client is flawed it used WAY to much memory. Do you understand I can play CoD4 on my pc and not use as much memory as I do with the POS SA client?

    There must be loops and code inside loops and loops inside code that makes the engine EAT memory doing very simple tasks like moving. The client is pretty much unplayable at its current stage and I suggest they take it out of open beta.

    I've been ****ting on KR since I was in the closed beta for it.

    I tried SA.

    KR may be a pile of rancid fish guts thrown through your dining room window while you're eating at the table, but SA is at least at the level of a recently used litter box down the hall in comparison.

    Mind you, 2D is like your favorite porn star dropping by unexpectedly and having a threesome with you and your signifigant other, to put things in perspective.


    You're overreacting.

    A constructive post from aran? *checks if hell is still hot*

    And COD4 is not that intensive....should not really compare it...it has preloaded everything, you are not constantly loading new material. Loops in the code would not cuase it to use memory...but whatever. It is designed to use ALL OF YOUR RAM, DESIGNED you see the word designed? That means it is working as intended. How can it use "WAY to much" when it should be using "ALL"?
     
  13. This is what i laugh about when i read most of these posts, there all dissin the game before its even finished! Give it a chance to bloom folks :thumbsup:

    if not rant then spiel

    It's been stated ... YES, 2D WILL STILL BE ABLE TO BE USED WITH SA EXPANSION.

    I put it in caps only so you'll spot it easier. It's been in a couple FoF and I **think** UHall at least.

    lemme see ... are you like another poster who is judging an entire release on a fresh open beta that is ACKNOWLEDGED to have flaws still? I'm impressed that there are 2 posters on these boards can foretell the usefulness or uselessness of a cllient and release within a matter of hours.

    I applaud you!

    History tends to repeat itself.

    Remember the trash heap that was UO3D? Yeah. Extrapolate from there.

    Oh, I don't necessarily disagree however I find it kind of on the nasty side to prejudge something that is not produced by the same Devs as UO3D, nor the same team that brought us AoS. And this team IS striving to not repeat the KR fluff.

    er, nasty dames-R-us? <grin> j/k

    I fully expect it to fall far short of the "must be 100% perfect" level. I would only ask that when released, it be compared to KR release - at least. IMO that was horrid due to marketing. <shrug>

    I'm going to play UO regardless.

    So long as there's a 2D, I'll be there.

    Once they remove that, I'll be elsewhere.

    the engine is finished all they are doing now is going to be fixing bugs like missing tiles. you don't put out a open beta on a product that isn't finished on a game like uo use your heads kids.

    Okay - KR graphics hurt my eyes. I admit 2D is outdated and needs a lot of love. SA appears to be some sort of compromise between the two and frankly I can work with the SA client where I can't in KR.

    I'll willingly give the SA client and the SA 2D client a workout (and I have been!!). There are glitches in each but I do like them both. It's gonna be tough for me ... but the SA client beats KR in the less eyestrain department.

    Despite EA insisting that SA expansion would be strickly for KR users they did a massive about turn when they realised what a crock of double whopper with cheese their new client was.

    And dont forget the KR fanboi's who said they would quit UO if SA was made accessable to 2d users. :D Your still out there boys. Quitting time is soon:loser:

    Are you surprised? The Devs have already proved with the KR debacle that they arent the most gifted programmers in the world. SA is just their latest botched effort.

    EA have their least able people working on UO whilst the better programmers work on other EA titles. Any of the Devs would leave at the drop of a hat if they were good enough to work on a newer more prestigious title.

    And before all the Dev butt kissers jump in, its undeniably true. You cant honestly tell me that having UO on your CV as a programmer is the pinicle of success.
