    No mention on KR bugs.. :sad4:
     
  2. I don't think there will be any. Now that we know KR is going to be upgraded and replaced with the SA client, I don't think we'll see any more KR bug fixes.

    They'll be making the SA client out of KR, though. A bug fix for one is a bug fix for the other.

    Frankly I'm not sure why they're bothering to give it a new name.

    It's the same reason Microsoft started the "Mojave Project" advertising campaign. When a decent product like Vista or KR gets a bad reputation from early flaws, consumer perception often can not get past those flaws. In the Microsoft case, they created a fictional "Mojave Operating System" public display test to get people to look at Vista again with eyes not tainted by the bad reputation.

    In the case of KR, adding additional fixes behind the scenes and repackaging it as a new SA Client is also probably intended to get the consumer beyond the current perception most players have of the KR client.

    Understood, but if it's not going to be at least like Titan Quest(I know the engine is up to the task for sure) why bother with SA? Just fix the damned bugs.
    Edited to add that I know UO is tile-based and probably cannot step away from that style but I wouldn't mind if it had TQ's graphics quality.

    Titan Quest - http://titanquestgame.com/ , take a look at the pictures and compare them to what Gambryo can dish out : http://www.emergent.net/oblivion , http://www.emergent.net/Products/Clients--Titles/RPG/Loki-Heroes-of-Mythology/

    ....And tell me EA can't make UO look and feel much better.

    To those with lower-end systems I have nothing to say, shame for keeping us in the caves in 2008. Get an XBOX or Wii if you wanna play games but can't upgrade, and want those games to never slow down your system. There's console internet now too.
    PC games evolve to match each year's lowest hardware specifications to say the least because people can and should, after 10 years to be honest, upgrade.
    Quit smoking or something, and save up. I don't care.
