Drakensang Online – Developer’s Diary # 1: was yesterday alone

At this point we can Bernd Beyreuther about his upcoming action RPG Drakensang Onlinespeak. Beyreuther is (after the acquisition of his former company developer Radon LabsDrakensang, Drakensang the river of time) By the publisher and developer Bigpoint now head of game development at the Berlin office of Bigpoint.

In a series of developer diaries of experienced game makers summarizes the work at its first Free2Play title Drakensang Online regularly, continuing a tradition that he used during the development of the first Drakensang games. In the first article deals in the first line to the departure from the previously used license from The Dark Eye and the vision that he and his team of Drakensang Online and its future.

Developer Diary # 1

Author: Bernd Beyreuther

Since 2007, we have accompanied Drakensang with developer diaries - and now publishes more than 30 episodes of these diaries. We want to continue that, because a whole new chapter of Drakensang was opened last summer. While we at "Drakensang: The River of Time" time I did not of gameplay and technology compared to the first part, Drakensang Online is now making a big, big jump - what to many can tell.

The Berlin development team Drakensang Online is largely of former Radon Labs employees, so experienced Drakensang-makers.The Berlin development team Drakensang Online is largely of former Radon Labs employees, so experienced Drakensang-makers.

The largest and most important change you can already see the names: Drakensang Online we can and many, many fans fulfill a long-cherished wish. The question of an online mode or Coop I had five years always deny regretfully, although playing together was one of our very central vision at the start of Drakensang development - we always had to defer considering narrowest limits. Now it is finally, finally be possible Drakensang hundreds not only alone, but together with friends and, yes to experience thousands of other players from around the world! Because this Drakensang is online.

From this fact, the second important amendment is mandatory: Drakensang Online, we create will be tossed aside after the first games not a static adventure, or interactive film; Rather, we are creating a world that will continue to evolve in the coming months and years. The number of cities and countries that can be played at the launch of the title, we will increase rapidly and continuously expand the game world: new continents, monsters, adventure and more ...

All these exciting changes and new features bring unfortunately a downer with him: We have decided to say goodbye for Drakensang Online from the previous license and the familiar background of "The Dark Eye". If that does not say anything: The Dark Eye is a classic, German Pen & Paper role-playing game series with a comprehensive set of rules and a clearly defined fantasy game world called Aventuren, which also played the previous Drakensang games. As much as we ourselves are fans of The Dark Eye - and Aventurien have closed over the years in which we ourselves have awakened the world to live, to the heart - brings us a so set world too many disadvantages, among which Drakensang Online would suffer.

Drakensang Online uses the advanced 3D graphics engine of the previous games and runs completely in the browser.Drakensang Online uses the advanced 3D graphics engine of the previous games and runs completely in the browser.

implement a world that is already described to the allerkleineste detail means that the creative work even when an intimate knowledge of the subject search precede meter in high stacks of rules, associated with extensive arrangements with a many-headed editors. To ensure that this effort seemed to us especially in one aspect now very inappropriate: The flexibility with which an online game must respond to the wishes of the community is enormous. We want to make an acceptable rate of these adjustments and enhancements (new monsters, items, countries, archetypes, etc.) and have the opportunity to add small things flexibly within a few days, so players not only every few months something new get offered.

Of course, I recognized occasionally nostalgia given the familiar "old settings". I spent there for many years, knew many as my hand and could shape the world. Now we look forward but to the challenge of creating a world in which current Drakensang fans are just feeling well as newcomers in Germany and internationally, who do not know the world of The Dark Eye - because Drakensang Online you will can play with players from around the world from the beginning, in the course of the game is to be translated into more than 20 languages.

The world of Drakensang Online - is a completely new, unknown world full of alien threats, fantastic creatures, unseen continents and full of magic. It is a world that has even forgotten their biggest secrets in the last 1000 years and now just awakened. Where this world will lead us and of course the players and what secrets we will ventilate together, we can hardly guess at the moment. Of course we have exciting concepts for the next steps, but where things are headed, ultimately, only the players will decide. Together with you, the community, we have the truly unique opportunity to create a fabulous fantasy world.

Video Game: The development team presentedVideo Game: The development team presented

With all these changes to some questions: Is Drakensang Online Drakensang yet? If you had not the game should just call different? When we recently had a number of journalists in the house, this question usually stood at the top of the notebooks and it has answered in the presentation of the current state of our game production: Yes. Naturally. This looks like Drakensang as well, which is the graphical signature, we know. This is a world that radiates the atmosphere, the magic and humor, was for the Drakensang and still stands.

The reason is obvious: It is the same team that has formed in the last five years and has developed all previous Drakensang title. The same technology that was already running stable, high-performance and outstanding bug free in many dozen titles will now conjure up in their latest version in Drakensang Online a fantastic world to the screen. And like the old titles should love and enthusiasm with which we are working on Drakensang Online, be visible to everyone.

I'm sure that the players are out there feel the fast if they take a look at Drakensang Online. And that can - given the free-to-play browser approach - each with no load times, no installation, and without spending a dime to try to launch with a single click away.

The Secret World: Legends – changes to the MMO after Pay2Win allegations

Funcom responds to the Pay2Win allegations against The Secret World: Legends.Funcom responds to the Pay2Win allegations against The Secret World: Legends.

Shortly after the Free2Play launch of The Secret World: Legends rained down among others the official forums quite a bit of criticism, especially in Pay2Win allegations manifests.

Many players complain about that is that you the in-game shop is imposed normal. Among other things, the inventory in The Secret World is: Legends dimensioned so small that a paid expansion was almost inevitable. The activation of weapons and the sometimes lengthy opening Lootboxen scream just to after-game purchases.

Funcom good after

The developer Funcom has probably taken the criticism to heart, because with the impending update 2.0.1, the team wants to eliminate many of the criticisms or at least mitigate. So is extended, among others, the available inventory space from 25 to 35 slots, which significantly more storage space brings.

In addition, prices for unlocking the first weapon and ability "Sprint to significantly reduce 2," so that players already on their first day in The Secret World: Legends can purchase. Even unlocking the weapons sites will go faster in the future.

The full patch notes can be found on the official website. The release of the update 2.0.1 is available for the July 5, 2017 planned.

Gamescom 2015 – The best indie games

Gamescom 2015 - The winners of the games fairGamescom 2015 - The winners of the games fair

Indie developers - are not nerds who father who converted garage to a command center for programming young and working there between pizza boxes and even hardware to bolt together sometimes more, sometimes less cool games? This romanticized ideal of the software visionary while it may still give the term "Independent Developer" but is now firmly in the middle of the industry and includes a one-man projects such Banished as well as the multi-million dollar Cowdfunding phenomenon Star Citizen.

Whether centrally from home in an illegal office in a university or decentralized: To realize their dream of self-made game, many indie developers take some up. working day and night to write program code until late at night is often the rule. If all goes well, they may eventually present their work to the public: On the Internet or at a trade show, as this year's Gamescom. We have looked at the indie games and put those in front, which we liked best.

Deliver Us The Moon

Deliver Us The Moon - 10 minutes of gameplay from the pre-alphaDeliver Us The Moon - 10 minutes of gameplay from the pre-alpha

Who knows the movie Gravity? Therein, the isolation in the width of the universe is rendered visually impressive images. In Deliver Us The Moon, the Dutch developer of Keoken Interactive want to take up this loneliness and pack them in a game in which the player is looking at the moon for resources that are essential for the future of humanity. The programmed with the Unreal Engine 4 game was playable at Gamescom and had a sharp textures, good animation and good control. But our character must be on the moon does not completely lose in solitude, a small robot named ASE accompanies us. Maybe even a friendship between humans and robots is possible?

vertices: Exploration, problem solving (jigsaw), collecting.

assessment: Deliver Us The Moon looks throughout the indie sector Gamescom far from the best. to collect a lot more than a few things, which then help to open doors, you can not do in the demo though. But the first impression is promising, because the feeling of being in a space station (and later on the lunar surface) to be all alone, is already there. The game will not be of interest to anyone, it will for example be no fighting. but who loves to explore, solve various puzzles and ever is in this kind of game, the Deliver Us The Moon should definitely watch.

demo: currently not

publication: not yet known

Gainward GeForce GTX 460 2.0 GB Golden Sample – This brings 2.0 GB of memory

Gainward's GTX 460 with 2.0 GB of video memory is shorter than the reference design from Nvidia.Gainward's GTX 460 with 2.0 GB of video memory is shorter than the reference design from Nvidia.

Normal Geforce GTX 460 cards with the fast 256-bit memory interface and 1024 MB of video memory can be had now for about 180 Euro. The Gainward GeForce GTX 460 2.0 GB Golden Sample however, costs 230 euros and offers for twice the video memory. 700 / 1,400 / 3,600 MHz clock frequencies for smart, shaders and GDDR5 memory are only slightly higher than those of Nvidia's reference design with 675 / 1,350 / 3,600 MHz. Except Gainward has Palit with the GTX 460 Sonic a 2.0-gigabyte version in the program, which also is clocked at 700 / 1,400 / 3,600 and suggests 250 euros. but at this price you get even faster, especially at high resolutions with anti-aliasing Radeon HD 5850th

Game Performance

In the past we have already tested three Radeon graphics card with 2.0 GB of video memory per GPU. In all of our benchmark tests, we were able to measure any advantage over 1.0 GB. It is, we use the AMD Eyefinity feature to output the image to three monitors. When then up to 5760x1600 pixels high resolution (three TFTs, each with 2560x1600) the additional storage volume does not help quite normal settings such as 1680x1050 or 1920x1200, however.

In the Gainward GeForce GTX 460 2.0 GB Golden Sample this image continues. In no benchmark doubled video memory does not lead to an increase in output, with eight-time anti-aliasing in the 30-inch TFT resolution of 2560x1600. On average, the Gainward card achieved in our benchmark suite from Crysis, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2 and H.A.W.X. 49.6 frames per second, while the 1.0-gigabyte version comes with four-time antialiasing with standard clock of 48.3 fps. Whenever the Golden Sample in the test calculates faster than the normal GTX 460, is the cause of slightly higher chip and shader clock. Our measurements of the Gainward GeForce GTX 460 2.0 GB Golden Sample at reduced to reference clock frequency level confirm this.

Potato salad in film criticism – 30 years on YouTube Channel

Potato salad - Trailer YouTuber comedyPotato salad - Trailer YouTuber comedy

Scene Wievielauchimmer; Police station; Interrogation situation. The policeman asks: "Are they nervous," out of the under interrogation: "No, Torben - but thanks for asking." Confused? Do not worry, this clears up. But first: Welcome to the wonderful world of potato salad, the first feature film from and with all the favorite YouTubers who finally have enough money to release the substantive and operational quality of their videos on the big screen.

Note on our own behalf
The folgenen paragraph we had deleted from the original text as part of editing. Upon request, our author David we add it back.

Even the short text overlay in the prologue ( "This film is based on a true salad.") Can be understood basically as a warning and provided simultaneously. Allen Humor lovers will namely immediately clear figuratively here that they now actually are already allowed to go back home. Funny is not it that is. At least not if you want it not. But one after anonther.

The creator of this great reared marketing gimmicks is Fresh Torge, in his capacity YouTuber, targeting the innocent sketches even for YouTube conditions on the very young audience. as a girl and woman exchange parodies jokes about school, twin wheels - Fresh Torge can find funny, but you do not. On YouTube, but still more than 1.4 million subscribers laugh at his jokes.

Humor is when you laugh anyway

but now this article is based on a visit to the cinema in the midst of the targeted audience. At noon, the best holiday season, surrounded by expectant teenagers between 8 and Bravo subscriber will. And which could in a total of one and a half hours, despite the total Collapse of all dams Humor hardly a tired chuckle be elicited. If even their own fans do not want to laugh, then who?

almost embarrassing silence was broken only once, by a particularly loud laughter - and that was from me. About half when suddenly a zombie epidemic breaks out and the Kalauerkanonade from full pipes shoots that indiscriminately scattered gags are suddenly so unskilled and mind-boggling that I could only manage with loud laughter me. And because I liked him, this a gag with the burning stuntman and the ice cream man.

That's a bit of Shotgun Humor the directors Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, the so evil works such as Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans have committed a crime. Whose brilliant idea: If I'll think of any good jokes, I just do so many until the last one gives up in the cinema hall and laughs. As with a shotgun just - any ball is already taken.

However, as with a good meal is not the bulk of the ingredients, but their quality, bring the end to taste. However, potato salad blaring its viewers up to his chin with jokes full, the time little work, most do not and are often also stolen.

Jokes of yore

The gag initially described, for example, no personal contribution. Fast forward just 35 years (God, that was long ago) back, the brothers couple David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams celebrated the year 1980, when with the incredible journey in a crazy airplane her first big international hit. At the time she left the legendary Leslie Nielsen immersed in dialogues like: "Is it serious," - "Yes - but please do not call me Ernst"!

And it was screamingly funny. The "Incredible Journey" movies are now classics of abstruse humor. Only - this is now her up for 35 years. The understanding of humor has changed simply by pop cultural influences, entertainment shows like the Simpsons or South Park and the ever changing zeitgeist (keyword YouTube). On Otto finally lured with its movies in the eighties sometimes millions of German in theaters, here it is good only for Mini supporting role.

Soul Hammer 40,000 – Mod transforms into Dark Souls Warhammer game

A new mod for the first part of Dark Souls series transforms us into a Space Marine.A new mod for the first part of Dark Souls series transforms us into a Space Marine.

In a new mod for the first Dark Souls, let us trudge Modder Abject as a Space Marine through the world of Lordran. With chainsaw, Bolter gun and the typical armament of space soldiers the mod promises Souls Hammer 40000 Warhammer real feeling. On Abjects Youtube channel you can watch a video that shows how the mod looks in action.

To bring the modification to work, you need DSFix and DSMODT. The tools allow the exchange of 3D textures and HUD elements. Soul Hammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the corresponding Nexus Mod page.

The Dark Souls series has always had a very active mod community, which was too bad never to extend the action role-playing sometimes with unusual ideas. This happened even at the Gun Game mod or implementing Fidget Spinners as a weapon against the nasty enemies.

Conclusion

Page 3: Nvidia Shadowplay - Fraps alternative Nvidia

Lucas Manhardt: Although it is actually still in beta, Shadow Play is already a very good recording program (for GeForce owners). If you call a modern graphics card from Nvidia their own, the power loss when recording a video is negligible, and the image quality is very good and absolutely sufficient for most cases. The minimally higher power loss compared to Fraps is more than made up by only one-tenth as large files and the resulting savings on disk space.

However, Shadow Play sacrifices a few advanced recording functions for the benefit of ease of use. For future Shadowplay versions we want, for example, an adjustable frame rate and resolution for the recorded video. Also streaming to Twitch.tv permits (yet) many settings, but is it ready in no time and without much effort. Bottom line Shadow Play is also available for owners of Nvida graphics cards who want to make no Let's PLay videos or Twitch streams, a real added value - particularly witty, heroic or insane moments can be shared with friends and thanks Shadowplay now also easily and privately at (or rather after) aufzeichen Done.

GeForce Shadowplay is a recording and broadcasting tool that Experience driver is included exclusively in Nvidia's GeForce.Shadow Play has numerous settings. From the self started match record on automatic background shots through to the live streaming via Twitch is offered all kinds.
Practical: Microphone and even FaceCam options are already integrated and easy to set up. Annoying overlaying of scenes like XSplit or Open Broadcaster is not here.

Dark Souls 2 – Softbans because DS2Fix64 (Update)

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin should be played without mods, even if this may lead to frustration and destroyed SAVED - From Software evaluates community updates namely as cheats.Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin should be played without mods, even if this may lead to frustration and destroyed SAVED - From Software evaluates community updates namely as cheats.

Update (May 7, 2015): Meanwhile, also the developer of DS2Fix64 mods for Dark Souls 2 has: Scholar of the First Sin spoken out and rejected responsibility for the fines imposed by From Software Softbans. Its modification can not be detected from the game as long as the development studio not publish a patch, the mud is safe.

Has a small hook to run Alessanro De Micheli, however - and he calls himself the same: The only logical explanation is that the game know all the hooks and DLL injectors and clearly shows how appropriate clients with Softbans. would be affected then even mods like x360ce, SweetFX, ReShade and DXTory. However, since the DS2Fix64 is the most widely used modification, it will probably be ultimately responsible for the current accumulation of Softbans.

From Software and Namco Bancai themselves have not yet commented on the reports. Until then, it is not recommended the use of any Dark Souls 2 mods.

Original message: Player of role-playing Dark Souls 2 and the Remaster Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin should uninstall any installed mods as quickly as possible. Because according Reddit developer From Software evaluates any community patches as DS2Fix64 as a cheat. The result: So-called Softbans that prevent a connection with official servers. Instead, cheaters and suspected cheaters have to play together in PvP and Koop.

Worth reading:The test for Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

The problem: DS2Fix64 fixes some serious bugs of the role play. Thus, the durability of weapons grotesquely, the higher the refresh rate reduces. Moreover DSFix64 bypasses a bug that can destroy reservoir levels. Both problems are present since release of the game, developer From Software is also known thanks to Dark Souls 1 for miserable PC implementations.

Until now in Dark Souls players the assumption that only those mods result in Softbans that actually intervene in the game and change reservoir levels. Community patches should not belong to it actually. In the Reddit post is also believed that with the release of Scholar of the First Sin a new anti-system has been implemented. This should explain the clusters of Softbans.

Offering a focused range of 16 playable characters, eleven stages and a stripped-down solo mode, the lightweight must leave as an online fighting games completely on his skill.

It is an uphill battle - because in the right corner of the reigning World Champion Ultra Street Fighter 4 towers with an absolutely impressive line-up: 44 playable characters, two dozen stages and almost ten years tournament sports experience. This feature giant has since the last generation of consoles the unbeaten king of fighting games.

Purely about numbers can Street Fighter 5 this battle of the titans So not win. We have spent tens of hours with the final trial, reingefuchst us into the mechanics and betrayed by what tricks the brand new challenger, the struggle for the genre crown could still decide for themselves - and why it still loses the battle.

Evaluation for release date Immediately after publication plagued the online mode of Street Fighter 5 extreme server and connectivity issues. It was not possible frequently to build a game with other people. One week after release, the situation has indeed improved a little, but really round run PvP matches still do not. The Matchmaking will take very long, in Ranked matches we often find no counterparties.

Therefore, we will be forced to devaluate. But regardless of the extent release of Street Fighter 5 is more manageable. There are only two-player lobbies, the Trials mode is missing - both problematic in a fighting game, which fully relies on multiplayer. We reserve the changes by patches of Capcom daily in view and adjust the rating as soon as recovery is in sight. The first big test check is carried out in the planned DLC in March.

Round One - Fight!

Street Fighter 5 is clearly designed for players who enjoy online matches. the offer of releases should in fact be too thin for all single-player enthusiasts out there: an arcade mode - that a number of solo fights against the AI ​​with a final boss fight - it does not exist. Instead, we can choose between Story and Survival. But the story mode takes quite short. each of the 16 playable figures Although has its own mini-campaign, which is, however, each consisting of only two to four fights.

Street Fighter 5 - All fighters

Overall, one can easily play through all the missions in one night, set to music text panels tell a totally inconsequential story, which is interesting not for veterans, yet somehow remarkably staged. While a more complete story campaign in the summer of 2016 will be submitted free of charge by DLC, but at present we can only comment on what it has done in the release version. Nevertheless, it is good to know that soon fodder for story enthusiasts is because the principle interesting fighters would definitely deserves a bit more backstory.

They are a really good mix of old friends and new items. Sure, many will miss sumo wrestler Hulk Honda or Blanka-waste, but are fan favorites such as Ryu, Ken and Dhalsim of the party. And we bet our golden boxing gloves that the complete fighter squad of Street Fighter 2 is also resupplied via free DLC.

The new generation

New additions included the Arab Rashid is one with his nimble whirlwind attacks - especially beginners can unleash the charismatic turbans quickly spectacular moves. But the Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter Laura inspires us with a creative palette Grappling- turn maneuvers. Generally should be in a fighter cast of Street Fighter 5 for each type of player something, but the most special moves are based in their operation on Shotokan model of Ryu and Ken. Who the iconic "hadoken"-Feuerball has on the box, comes with the other characters along well - exotics with other operation patterns such as Zangief or M. Bison are the exception.

This is particularly good players who have not yet found the time or motivation to become acquainted with the gigantic game mechanics of Ultra Street Fighter 4 with all its tactics, technical terms, characters and move sets. At first glance, like Street Fighter resemble 5 with the 2D appearance the previous strong, but in reality it offers a stripped-reboot, which might be interesting for newcomers accordingly. The mainly affects the actual battle system: Part Five will go back to the basics.

Critical Art: PreparationexecutionKO!&# 8203;

Critical Art: PreparationKen Critical Art is a powerful vortex If we ignite with a turbocharged super-beams.

executionAs you can stand tends to be less in SF5 so draws a Critical Art enormously from much life energy.

KO!In this case, the attack is even to the knockout kick.

The complicated Focus attacks of its predecessor were canceled, but basic techniques are more important now. We pay attention to the footwork of the opponent, placing punches and kicks in different hardness levels and concatenate these moves to effective combinations. Also special moves such as Ryu's Shoryuken are of course back at the start.

The Ultra Moves the predecessor hot now Critical Arts, but work on the same principle: If we gave the opponents enough on the cap to fill our special bar, Ryu example, can fire a powerful supercharged Hadoken. His best friend Ken, however, unleashed a fiery kick-fireworks that almost abknöpft the enemy half life bar.

What is new is the so-called V-GaugeWho has to put too much can activate this bar at the right time, thereby gaining for a short time an attack boost. But even more interesting are the V-attacks: Each fighter has a signature move that he can always activate a button. When Ryu is for example, a Parry - that is, a block parade, which the opponent's attack completely neutralized (Street Fighter 3 Greetings). M. Bison can hurl it back Hadokens by hand.
