Many other popular games, such as BF2, have similar bugs to the one in the video to which you linked. The more complex the game and programming, the more difficult it is to make the game perfect; and no game is perfect. Period. And just because you see console errors doesn't mean they cause issues. I have played many a game where errors appeared in the console but it had no effect in the game. The console errors could be as simple as not finding a texture that a shader links to, but you won't necessarily see it in game because the parts of the object you see were changed.
So, until you have an example of a game that does the same thing as Crysis while performing better, then you can complain about optimization. If you want to complain about bugs that is entirely different, and even then you have no proof that it makes the game run poorly.
A lot of you need to realize that just because something isn't the way you want it to be doesn't mean it is wrong or inefficient or whatever. When you have credibility on this subject, you can make such claims.
So I suppose you've played both games maxed out in DX10 (on your XP machine...) such that you can make that claim? Or you just conveniently have a friend who does?
Dream on. A simple google search proves you wrong, and I've experienced issues in game as well.
Ofcourse errors in console have an effect ingame.
If the engine is wasting time siving through bugs it's taking away processing
power to deal with such handles.
Btw optimization is classed as both efficency of handling operations and
the manner in which it's done so if you see errors in console that means
something isn't performing as requested which in fact is a optimization fault.
Cryengine2 is a fantastic engine in theory, the problem is getting an engine
designed for high load rendering to perform well. Which at the moment it
Thing is aswell you say that when someone has credibility on the subject
can make claims. can i ask what credibility you have yourself on the subject?
Every thread i see you post in turns into an arguement and you thrust your
opinion left and right shooting down anyone elses opinion as for accusations
of someone not experiencing it first hand, like you said; i suppose you've
worked with the CryEngine 2 on a project and can justify claims that it
is performing as it should? or did you just use google?
why argue every point you don't agree on and defend things with epic intent?
Theres no point, chillax.Edited by [FH415] LOKI - 6/5/08 at 9:14am
