Thread: Hey, has anyone thought about this? Graphic engienes

    Default Hey, has anyone thought about this? Graphic engienes

    Is it just me or, how is the xbox going to beable to handle the halo 2 engine at a constant fps when it can't handle the unreal tournament 2k3 engine constantly at 30 fps and at a low resolution?

    Just a thought.

    It should be able to handle it. Games like Moto GP and Quantum Redshift run at a high framerate and the graphics are great. Bungie should be able to do it because they know how to use Xbox.

    Halo and Halo 2 are having their engine designed specifically for the Xbox while UC (UT2k3) didn't.

    They are also completely different engines. Bungie relies on bump mapping for most of their effects. Bump mapping on the Xbox is virtually free, as they found out. Halo 2 will actually be pumping out less polygons than Halo but will be using bump mapping out the yazzoo.

    THe answer is yes. The Halo 2 engine uses actually les polys then the original one but the detail is hoped up cause of the great lighting and bump mapinng.

    Every game that have been build specifically for the xbox will have no problem with framerate. UT 2003 is build for only PC.

    i dont get why everyone complains about uc's framerate...i have yet to see a problem with it, except for lag, or when you've got 16 players in gael all using rocket launchers at the exact same moment

    Have you seen SplinterCell? Not one blip or skip or slowdown the whole 10+hours I played it. That is a hint at what Halo2 and Doom 3 will be like. Those games are all about lighting and bump mapping.

    The Unreal engine has always been a resource hog, so it is no real surprise that they didn't do a great conversion when it was put onto the XBOX.

    That's exactly what I was goin to say.

    The only framerate drop I've seen lately was today while I was at my aunt's gouse. My cousin (which just got an XBOX for XMAS
    ) and I were playing co-op Ghost Recon. The framerate was gettin real funky when there were enemies all over, a tank, some AI soldiers, my squad, and my cousin's squad. It felt like the framerate dropped to aroun 10fps. We had to turn off our NV goggles in an effort to raise the framerate. First time I've seen any framerate drop on my XBOX since the beginning of my crazy Halo days.

    It's ok offline, but ShrewKing is right. It does eventually get boring if you're playing bots all the time, playing on LIVE just adds a whole lot of replay value.

    If you're going to buy it without XBOX LIVE, then I recommened at least having enough friends with an XBOX, UC, a hub, and some cables, cuz man, you're gonna have to play some people other than bots...

    Playing with bots is what I have been doing in several videogames.

    I dont mind bots. Ive been playing Counter-Strike for years with just bots since I get to much lag playing online (yes, my PC IS that crappy)

    by what you guys have been saying it sounds like the kind of game where i should wait till its price drops.

    I hate to say this but...you're just a tad too optimistic for your own good. Lighten up a bit. (sorry, I had to say that)
