[MordorHQ] Next BF3 Patch will NOT Include Color Grading Command Option - Page 4

post #31 of 78
Yeah im havent touched BF3 on PC in months. Really disappointed in the game over al, dont like the direction they took it. But I am more a fan of the play style of Bad Company 2, which is probably why. I'll be reinstalling that game again soon, miss it so much. I hope they dont butcher BC3.

I'm sorta new to this whole thing, but I do hate the tint the game has. I have seen a lot of people talk about colour tweaker. Few questions:

1. Is it pretty easy to use?
2. Is it legal (I won't get banned)?
3. Will Dice just update in the future so the tweaker won't work?

Thanks

I suggest snoball's settings and cranking up Digital Vibrance a wee bit. smile.gif
And GG DICE you guys rock. Don't give the people what they want, that's exactly how successful companies are made.

You guys are still talking about that thing? Wow. You must like it eh?

Lol. This is all just so silly.

I understand being a little upset, but jeeze.. Is the blue tint really that big of a deal? People can point out that this just shows how little DICE cares about the community all they want, but it really doesn't. BF3 has been one of the best supported games DICE has done. Sure, they have to make compromises for EA who have to please investors, but it's surely not with the mindset that they're screwing the community over.

I don't think the developers who got worse.. I think it's the community who's gotten worse.

Now:
I knew it was too good to be true. These companies don't care at all, and make up dumb excuses on why they don't want to add stuff like this. According to this logic, they should remove all graphical settings in the game because "low" would not properly advertise their game.

I feel they should remove "Low" from games anyways, 9/10 these games give an edge to people running on low by removing brush/dust/smoke ect.

It's not technically legal, but it's not really enforced either. Modding files without permission is against the user agreement. I'm not sure if DICE will ban it later on, but they might not. It's not like the other tool which could be used maliciously. They're obviously aware of the tweaker, so if they were going to do something about it, they would have done it already.

It's obviously not about whether it gives other players an advantage. In fact, this was going to put people using it at a disadvantage because it would break certain things like the IRNV scope.

People still support this company? *shrug* Guess you guys will just drop your pants and bend over when BF4 requires a RFID chip to be injected in your anus in order to log in.


I jest, but hopefully at least one of you nearly brainwashed individuals will wake up and take the hint.

I'd take a broken IRNV anyday if it means no smoke or bushes. And even then the IRNV works just fine on low so not quite sure what you're talkin aboot.

The conclusion is that they don't come well out of this PR disaster. Their initial statement (below, from the related thread here on OCN) already denoted ambivalence. Sort of like "we really don't want to do this and will just make it so that the feature is not supported or fully implemented in the game, we are just reluctantly and not in a very good mood giving in to fan requests".

Now they backpedal on something that, while not said in the right tone, did make many fans happy.

They spoke too soon. Once you make a decision, it's made and you have to stick with it, their initial statement demonstrated they were not very willing in their decision making process in the first place.

This may just be an artistic related decision and not have anything to do with EA (or maybe it does, because the game will look different on PCs versus consoles, with possibly even more perceived quality differences), but in the end many people will think it does and that is not good for DICE, especially as many people have been saying they are disappointed with the game.

We believe that turning it off gives no major competitive advantage/disadvantage.
IRNV scope and a few others which turn the image into greyscale or greenscale don't work properly without color grading and will look real ugly.
There will be no in-game UI for turning it on/off.
We are unlikely to handle support questions and bug reports regarding stuff that happens when color grading is disabled.

As for server settings: we are not currently planning to implement any new ones.

Nvidia control panel has all sorts of color options.
But my best question is what is this blue tint you speak of?
Im being serious my game has no blue tint!

Oh and all you people complaining they could do what they do on consoles and just lock the settings to what they want...........................
