Trine 2: Director’s Cut won’t be running at 60 FPS

Wouldn’t you say that Trine 2: Director’s Cut looks quite amazing on Wii U? Developer Frozenbyte was even able to enhance the game’s visuals. But those graphics come with a (small) price. Frozenbyte won’t have Director’s Cut running at 60 FPS in the future. (Trine 2: Director's Cut, Wii U)

a shame really, i wonder if they ran out of room or just didn't have enough time to fiddle around with the machine so they could push it :S
either way a steady 30fps is fine

So the latest and greatest console cant run Trine 2 at 60fps lol.

Yes, congratulations, that is the jist of the article.
One of the few devs praising the hardware makes the game 30fps? ok.. Is it at least 1080p?

720p, with just better textures and V-Sync and more enemies...

Also there are some additional effects like more detailed reflections in the water and more complex physics. You would think they could get additional power by not rendering the game a second time on the gamepad but maybe the hardware is setup a certain way so that doesn't affect the overall performance?

Its more than good enough for me. So long as it demonstrates that it can do more than the last gen consoles.

The Trine 2: DC dev still stated the game, as it is on the Wii U, cold not run on the PS3/360 without downgrades. Also, its still a port at the end of the day.

The best games on the console are the games that were made "for the Wii U.

Like Wonderful 101 which runs flawlessly at 720p 60 FPS.

I didn't notice it at all. Too busy staring in amazement at the art direction and feeling guilty that I only paid $15.99 for it.

CaptainSheep  +   940d ago
I have the SAME problem! -_-
The DLC patch will fix it, I've heard.

First off you should have known better and used Hong Kong store, for your Hong Kong ps3,don't blame devs for your mistake.
You've learned your lesson, next time use appropriate software for your hardware.
After all ps3 isn't 100% region free.

Why are you asking for help with your PS3 in Wii U news?
FlyingFoxy  +   940d ago
That's definitely a rather low frame rate.. 60+ is always best, maybe if they had an option to disable the game pad streaming it would be able to run at 60?.

Just a thought.. like couldn't they just put simple controls on the game pad screen instead of live game play being displayed?. that way it's not sucking extra power from the console and give it more speed?

Whatever the case it's not looking too good going forward for multiplat gaming. I imagine the new Xbox, the PS4, and the new Steambox won't have issues running the game at 60fps. Which means the Wii U will mainly attract people looking for Gamepad experiences and exclusives. So unless 3rd party publishers can somehow make the Gamepad a lot more fun to use the Wii U will rely mainly on its exclusives. Those 3rd party exclusives will not be in large supply either I imagine.

I was expecting 60FPS but 30FPS is good enough for Wii U owners. As long as its stable i dont see a problem.

lol bwahhh we all knew this would happen just like we knew bo2 wouldnt be 1080p native on the wiiu and turned out to perform worse than the ps3/xbox versions. Only the blind and death like Metroid and Kingofwiiu believe otherwise.

Been knew about this lol and the game is still better and a shit ton of games this gen run at 30fps and like someone said its still just a port and the wii u is getting HUMAN ELEMENT IN 2015 LOOK IT UP and that's a MULTIPLAT GAME
