Patch 1.01 is live for Modnation Racers. No further details yet. Servers still down.
Patch for loading times?
''No further details yet'' Indeed, the loading times is fixed. Probably will be this patch to fix that or the next one. From IGN: ''IGN: What's the experience been like reading reviews for the game, now that they're starting to come out. Has anything surprised you? Dan Sochan: For the most part we've been really happy. We've seen review scores that have been quite high, lots of 9's, which is great. We've seen some comments about the load times, which is something we're aware of. It's something we're working on. It wasn't an oversight on our part at all. The way that our technology was built we were able to keep file sizes really, really small for transfer times of less than a second or a second and a half. We didn't want it to be so that you and I go online and you want to try a track I've built that's 50MB and then have you have wait five minutes to download it. That immediately became an obstacle in sharing so we created a file system where everything is built dynamically and on the fly. Everything is essentially a series of coordinates to things that are saved. The challenge with that is we're building an entire world, an entire character, an entire kart, and 12 characters online, all on the fly. There's a lot of compositing that happens with the stickers and all the different parts. Because of that, there are longer load times, but that's something we're working on for one of our first patches, to improve that and get that down significantly.''
I tried a race and timed it, it was the same old loading time. The "career" mode seemt quick to load tho, didn't pay much attention to it before so it might just be nothing. I didn't mention it but the patch is about 39Mb
Do you have the game already?
The game not out yet 21st for eu and 25th for america....So how come you've got it? explain
ofc the servers are down. They will go online on the 21st
@camehlheon Isnt the game out on the 21st i dont understand how you have the game already?
i can go out and get the game right now no problem heck i got GOW3 a week before release date same with MAG and some other games but im short on cash so i'll but it when i get some cash
Ill be able to play again with you captain!, my college went on strike and I'm free LOL!
I got a promotional version that editors give to medias/websites/press (which I'm part of) for reviews. So yes I have the game already (and since last week or so)
I hope, no, BEG that they fix loading times.
when do the servers go up?
They will fix the loading times, they have already said a patch it being worked on to reduce them they also said the reason for the load times is because it is rendering the whole thing on the fly, so the track, the racers, the katrs etc etc, all custom, all on the fly
you can get the game a few days before the games out, But not over a week? mmmm......cant believe you
I got GTA3 back in the day like 2 weeks early. I believe him.
Ahh well it doesnt matter i guess some people who work at game shops can get their games early. My game is on the reserve list :( I will get it after its released - 21st.
It's because he wrote the review for there site, he's using the review build that they sent him pre-release.
Why put in the article the servers are still down when the game is not out yet? Servers up when the game is released to the general public.
Yeah they obviously down, but some people at Sony have told me that the servers might come up either this week or for the release date. That's why I still had hopes for it ;)
