Gamers re-name Dark Souls: Prepare to die Edition to Prepare to Sigh edition
Quote:
The interface won’t be redone, keyboard and mouse support will be minimal so gamepads are heavily recommended, and there won’t be new graphics settings. From Software producer Hidetaka Miyazaki is paraphrased as saying the game being “a straight port” was publisher Namco’s decision. There will be new content – enemies and areas and stuff like that – but while welcome I think we’d all agree we’d much prefer a well-optimised PC version rather than extra stuff.
Quote:
Namco told VG247 that GFWL’s inclusion was “still to be decided”, so perhaps there is yet hope they’ll opt for something else

Slightly positive but doesn't make up for anything else.

As for no nigher resolutions, it still might support 1080p but Dark Souls was designed for 720p so the textures might be solely designed around that resolution, I don't know as I didn't create the engine or the artwork/textures.

There's a comment in the GFWL thread about Dark Souls and someone quoted Miyazaki and he said "it will be a faithful port, there won't be higher resolutions and it won't be 60 fps"


It sounds like this is going to be a hack-job that just offers new content.

I found the article of the quote and it's in Japanese. Google translate doesn't do very well with it, so I'm not 100% sure of the reliability of anyones interpretation unless they speak Japanese.

――PC版は、PS3版、Xbox 360版を忠実に移植しつつ追加要素を加えたものになるのですよね?
宮崎英高氏(以下、宮崎) はい。基本的には忠実な移植になります。解像度に変更はありませんし、フレームレートが60になるということもありません。

-- The PC version, I'll be something I added additional elements while faithfully ported version of the 360 version PS3, Xbox?
Goh British Miyazaki (hereinafter, Miyazaki) Yes. Basically will be faithful to transplantation. Nor does it change it does not have the resolution, frame rate that becomes 60.

(edit) Just did some more digging. It looks like he was saying he can't guarantee the game won't drop below 60, implying that they have not fixed the low blighttown framerates.
Quote:
He also said that From Software is aware of the frame rate issues in certain areas of the console version of Dark Souls, in particular Blight Town. He couldn’t comment on the frame rate issues in the PC version since the game is still under development, which is about 70–80 percent complete.

That's a positive twist, I was waiting on more sources before taking any of it seriously, though I didn't know where the framerate quote came from, I just repeated it since it was said and could have been true.

So it's confirmed the petition has their attention, if they're porting this to make more money I can see them going with Steam.

Started playing Dark Souls last night and man is it tense. Starting with a cleric to make a paladin-type faith build. Made a suicide run for Astora's Straight Sword and the Bandit Armor to gird myself for the Undead Burg biggrin.gif.

Good call, that's one of the best swords to start out with, especially on a build like yours.

I would recommend leveling faith to about 30, then getting strength to 30-40. This enables you to take your (str bonused) weapon of choice, upgrade it to +15, and then use one of the miracle buffs on it. Most of the straight faith-scaling weapons aren't that great at the higher levels.

Yeah, I heard a +15 with a sunlight blade/darkmoon blade is the best possible damage you can get. Plan on joining the Sun Bros guild and helping other players out eventually.

Anyone else having crashing issues?
I can't access the pc settings without a CTD, I start a new game CTD... kind of pissed at this point, can't even play the game. Graphics drivers are up to date, same with sound card drivers.

I just beat anor londo, and haven't had a single crash. Tons of fail to summon though, but that's always plagued dark souls.

No firewall besides whatever my D-link router has. I use nod32 AV.
