For one that's a little quick to have a go and point out that's not technically correct and how's been simplified for the press Ect,ECT I would have thought you more than most you have been in agreement that its not actually true Bump-mapping.Sooo... no, then?
That it is it . This board must make SEGA's console sound the best ? Saying the DC didn't have Hardware support for Bump-mapping is just stating the fact. It took until the XBox Gen to see decent Bump-mapping on the consoles becuase both the PS2 and DC didn't really bother to use the effectAndromeda is constantly rejecting anything that makes the Dreamcast sound impressive
Back in 2001 when the XBox came out Plasma or LCD was a pipe dream and out of the price for most consumers and even in 2004 not many had TV's that supported 480p .Why the hell would I be playing a 480p game on a 480i CRT TV? Anything 480
No at all , people like you just going by Youtube may think Tourning Car looks good and runs ok -Anyone who's played and own the game would tell you its a heap of shit in the framerate Dept. Also Youtube doesn't show up things like games boarders and so on . So many may think the likes of Wave Race or Daytona USA were full screen , anyone who's played the games know otherwise .. There's a lot of variables to do with footage.The logic of this is basically saying unless you own a game you're completely fucking blind when viewing any footage or screenshots of it. The only aspect of a game that this matters on is gameplay, nothing else.
Yes the Irimajiri-san tech demo . It's not true Bump-mapping and speaking of the UK. EDGE (or it may have been the likes of Games Master) did a big feature and interview with the Climax graphics team about Blue Stinger and in that interview the Team confirmed it wasn't true Bump-Mapping and they weren't going to use the effect as it hit the Hardware too much they were going for the most amount of polygons they could with light soruce .Sega Saturn Magazine from the UK had extensive coverage of the pre-release Dreamcast tech demo that showed off some of the hardware effects
Well the clue is in the name. Sure it was called XBox for a reason .Looks like you may be right on that one
No I just tend to deal in the real world and what real games deliver on the Hardware in question .He rejects *everything* that makes anything sound impressive
Its not a trick at all . More of a trick on the Mega Drive would be the 180 degree rotation trick that the likes of Treasure and Core usedFMV on the Sega CD is a trick
Yep and ever saw any Heat Haze effects in any DC racer or come to think of it any DC game at all (well bar Maken X)Good points. Several PS2 racers also seem to have environment mapping while most of the DC ones doesn'
