I played PC GR:AW at the I27 event for ages...


Recommended Posts

Everyone looked orange, what do you mean? Skin? uniform?

The whole game has a sepia look to it.

The skin / uniform etc was all different shades of dark orange.

This pic kinda shows what i mean BUT he's close up. From a distance everyone looks all the same colour. Like a dark orange robot.

Unfortunatley the skins on the version i played didnt look very good at all. But hey, the gameplay kicked ass and thats what we want. ;)

I wouldn't worry too much. Number 1, it was a beta build. Number 2, if is significant issue, replacing uniform textures is not going to be difficult for the mod community to deal with. In fact, I'd expect uniform texture packs to start showing up pretty quickly after launch, as people will want to change the Ghost uniforms to more closely match custom clan skins from GR1 , or match the uniforms special forces units from whatever country the live in.

Thanks for taking the time to post this information. I'm a bit surprised on your forum you said you didn't like that you couldn't look straight up, but realistically (and I tried it sitting here), about an 80 degree elevation is all you get wth your neck. I think that's a good balance between realism and playability. As long as it works both ways, and the opposing force can't look straight up see me when I'm on the roof. ;)

uh-huh, why didnt you say it before!

"beta" huh-huh :D

Well, i dont know if it was beta, its 1 month away from release, lets put it that way. So it had to be past beta but it still had a few issues.

Overall it was a good experience.... but if you're a big BF2 fan, you wont like it. They're totally different gamestyles.

I take it you did not see the Mexican MP opponents then? :)

If they are orange I'm a Bunny Hopper.

I'm a massive Battlefield 2 fan, and i know for a fact i'll be a massive fan of GRAW :grin1: , I just realy enjoy playing modern military first person shooters.

I see what you mean about the crappy orange look, might be the monitor?

OR "drumroll" the light. You guys need to get away from the old static light. If the sun is orange the HDR will make stuff orange - if it is bleak yellow/white it will make stuff pale. The Church map is very orange and so is two other CO-OP / SP missions. Others not.

Each mission and MP level got different settings. Forget about coloring the texture much - when modding think of how the material will react with the sun setting it is used in. IF you put a guy in direct sun light - he will shine. If he is in a shadow he will be colored say bluish from the radiosity bounce.

Mexicans are green/black with vests in MP - and their kit don't reflect light as much as the Ghosts.

There is actually a MP Mex in one of the videos from the UK event.

Cool you liked the game! I'll see you on the net.

They don't and you don't in TvT. In CO-OP you do.

MP TvT as well...  :D  coop single the lot...

Ok you got to pay attention in MP then. The thing is the only set up is Ghosts vs Mex. So if you did not see any Mex, means you must have been a Mex but never saw your team. Playing Sniper are we?

To be honest there were 1000 people at the event and the GRAW stand was empty most of the time. They had about 15 pcs on a lan for GRAW multiplayer and no-one was on it much. We played Church and there was only 3 / 4 of us. All we seemed to do was run around trying to find each other.

The map felt like it needed at least 20+ players.

Dude im trying to say what I personally thought, if I've upset you because I've given it some sort of criticism then I appologise, but no need to take the ######.

We've found here that 3 vs 3 can work real well when you start to block supply lines and take zones form eachother. 20+ is real fun of course but then you need a team strategy or you will be toast.
