#65046 Texture Glitch

Posted by Mutilator57 on 18 May 2018 - 09:33 AM

I've had this happen on my game before. Think it's more to do with the graphics card you're using (mine's an AMD), but that's just a guess. I'ts been a while but I think I fixed mine by changing which Cubemap file the character used or something like that?

Someone who knows what they're talking about should probably jump in any time now...

(If no one's around, I'll check for you when I get back to my computer :) )




#64264 KOTOR2, Morrowind, Bioware & other Star Wars Classics Coming To Xbox One...

Posted by Mutilator57 on 11 April 2018 - 01:55 AM

Interesting! I'd get it, but it's been over a decade since I played the game on console - once you go PC you never go back!

This is awesome. I always used to rush past this video with BoS installed. Now, I don't have to.




#63265 Anyone have SpaceAlex's K1 Enhancement Pack?

Posted by Mutilator57 on 28 February 2018 - 11:05 PM

So I've done this; but Marl's head is coming up as invisible to me, anyone help me figure out why?

Although it *was* a while ago, I actually went through SpaceAlex's mod file-by-file and decided what I wanted to keep.

Because I can't remember exactly what I did (sorry about that!) I'm just operating purely on memory and a bit of instinct. Just by taking a quick peek, I think the issue is with your appearance file. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the appearance file references the heads file via the normalhead column. So what you basically have is Marl's line in the appearance file referencing a non-existent line in the heads file. For your game, change the entry in the normalhead column from 133 to 109 and see if that helps.

 




#62795 The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

Where? By whom? Intense how? Barely-controlled how?
Give me some examples here. Besides the "Alt-Right boycots Star Wars because John Boyega plays in it" Hoax.

... are you sure you and I are following the same thing? Look no further than our own TFA thread which was a cesspool of anger and vitriol. I just had another little peruse myself, and boy, if all that doesn't fall under the purview of the adjectives I use then I don't know what will.

If you're looking for extra-DS examples, simply take a look at Star Wars Hub on FB - their relentless pro-Disney line is infamous.




#62791 The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

Posted by Mutilator57 on 08 February 2018 - 08:42 PM

I checked out of that thread a long time ago, It is currently only filled with vitriolic fans who do nothing more than post videos about how bad TLJ is. I could do the same with videos arguing the opposite points, but why bother?

 

The same happened with the thread discussing episode VII (which I don't love but think is okay, just like TLJ), I spent quite a lot of time working on posts and trying to have genuine respectful conversations but it seems to me that a lot of the Star Wars fans here have some kind of personal vendetta against anything that is Star Wars post-Disney buyout. 

I don't wish to prolong the agony so I'll keep this short and sweet. As someone who was a vociferous critic of TFA back in the day, just as I am of TLJ, may I just say while there was and *is* sniping on both sides, in 'our' defence, the animosity directed at those who dare question the new trilogy's direction was intense, implacable and barely-controlled. We have a little bit more stock now as the other non-movie-related failures of the Disney-led SW universe have started to take shape too, but we're still very much the pariahs of the fanbase because of this irrational fear of being too 'negative'.

In my opinion, it's the same kind of poison that's bled over from political life - it's now fashionable for everyone to detest so-called 'negative campaigning'. Yet when it comes to the ads people most remember, they're almost always the most negative ones. And so be it. How can you compare the pros and cons of something without presenting the negative; the contrast?

At the risk of sound evasive, I of course also needn't point out that there's never a license to insult people personally or engage in petty low-blows in these kind of things either :D
 




#62739 Game of Thrones ShowRunners to produce Star Wars Trilogy

Posted by Mutilator57 on 07 February 2018 - 09:29 PM

And I don't really have a strong opinion. It sounds good, but the last Disney wave leaves me with Star Wars fatigue, making me rather apathetic towards any new Star Wars movies. I rather look forward to EA loosing the license and maybe we can actual get some good games again for a change.

This is the best description for the way I currently feel towards the whole SW universe. Disney is turning it into a merchandising cash-cow. They're flooding the market with low-quality, high-volume content that's not only terrible, but that completely tramples on previously-established in-universe norms and rules built over decades.

Let me say loud and proud, I absolutely hated this movie. Those of you who can cast your mind back two years ago might remember that I was one of the staunchest critics of TFA. However, at least with TFA, the fundamentals weren't terrible. Sure, it was a pale imitation, but a well-crafted one.

This movie...where can one begin?

Spoiler


I could go on and on but I think you guys get the gist.

 




#60985 Battlefront Turmoil

Posted by Mutilator57 on 29 November 2017 - 08:31 PM

I'm not wishing for anything, just stating some of the news.

It was more of a general comment rather than one directed specifically at you. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

 

Yeah, I know right.

 

In other news EA just lost 3.1 billion in stocks, might be linked to the outrage... 

Proof enough that we don't need regulators. With the internet and so many forms of communication these days, an informed citizenry is more than sufficient to stunt some of these rubbish practices in their tracks.

 

Thanks Xuul for the interview with the developers of Galaxy In Turmoil. I will have to check it out! I also appreciate that you mentioned the old Battlefront II (2005). I had a lot of fun playing it back in the day and I would be willing to play it again for PC if there is a revival in the multiplayer scene.

I managed to get some good MP fun out of it as recently as 2014; it was a live but admittedly small scene of course. Perhaps recent disgust in the new BFII will catalyse that resurgence?




#60963 Battlefront Turmoil

Posted by Mutilator57 on 28 November 2017 - 08:57 PM

Fantastic post as usual, the Belgium gaming commission is looking to get SWEA Battlefront 2 completely banned in Europe.
Also I believe it's the sixth in the series if you include the two portable titles.

Are we really going to celebrate regulators poking their nose into yet another industry? Especially something as near and dear to our hearts as the production of video games? As someone from Australia which has some of the most stringent restrictions and gaming regulagions, I'd be careful what you wish for.

Regardless, EA should suffer for their mistakes.

Seriously? Hard to understand why tbh.

Because people have different tastes?

#59952 KOTOR Comes to Xbox One X

Posted by Mutilator57 on 24 October 2017 - 10:35 PM

Master Chief Collection.

I'd love to get classic controller support for K1/TSL on PC.

Although beginning my TSL journey on console, it's been so long that I can't even imagine playing either game with a controller  :hrhr:




#59931 KOTOR Comes to Xbox One X

Posted by Mutilator57 on 24 October 2017 - 05:04 AM

Not worth it IMO, the PC version has long since surpassed its console counterpart; the breadth of mods alone should convince anyone of that. Nevertheless, it's a nice gesture all the same.
