[EG] Dark Souls PC Preview: The Devil's Bargain - Page 22

post #211 of 229
I'm really sour about the lack of res and frame rate lock but as for controls? I was planning on playing with an XBox pad anyway so no gripes there.

As for resolution and frame lock, I'm mad bro.

Gear mentioned in this thread:

KB&M is my preferred method in ALL OF THEM. So speak for yourself partner. As for "it's not going to happen"; all the keys are remappable per the the instruction manual.

I'll have to quote myself I quess.

...and everytime I hear someone say it's "impossible" to play on KB&M, I have to laugh. I've only been on a KB since 1979.

Some of the best games I have played this year have terrible graphics... Hack, Slash, Loot, Orcs Must Die, Terrarria, Legend of Grimrock... If you are looking only for graphics then you are cheating yourself out of some amazing games. I bet most of the people making the biggest fusses bought MW3 and will by the next CoD re-hash too.

No ones complaining the graphics are bad...

The issue is the frame rate lock and the resolution - frame buffer problem.

Second thought, yeh there are some complaints about graphics. But afaik, the games you listed didn't have graphical problems.

if the game is "locked" at 720, what happens if you play it on an old 800x600 CRT? Will is squish? I'm sure there's some kind of downscale...or something....right? tongue.gif

The framebuffer is the only thing that is locked (aside from fps). Basically the game is rendered with a precision of 1024x720 (weird resolution), but you can still render to whatever resolution you want. There won't be any stretching, it will just be lower quality.

It's hard to explain it in terms most gamers have visually seen before, but if you look at certain games, shadows will sometimes be jagged. This is usually because those shadows were rendered to a texture/buffer that was much smaller than the resolution the game is running at, causing it to lose precision, so when those shadows are rendered to a screen with a higher resolution, then you see the loss of quality. However, if you were to run the game at a resolution lower than the framebuffer, you would actually end up with higher quality than usual, because it's effectively doing super sampling (rendering to a higher resolution and then scaling it down to fit on your screen).
