Watch two new videos showing impressive physics effects from Havok.
That's really cool. It shows that graphics are important for gameplay, after all.
Before people start talking about the german website taking youtube videos and putting them on their website. Many of you wouldn't know about some of these videos if it weren't for them. At least not as soon as if they didn't. So, don't think they are completely useless and troublesome.
they take credit for the videos and disable the ability to click on the video and be taken to you tube. thats why everyone hates them.
How comes I just clicked the vid and it took me to the youtube page
I really should read the whole discussion before agreeing with people... First I agreed with Bereaver than I saw what danmachine said and agreed with him but than i saw that danmachine was wrong and agreed with sashamaz... But finally I agree with Bereaver this sites do help us find interesting Youtube videos and they do give credit by allowing as to watch them ON youtube if we want.
Dress physics: TOTALLY not a waste of processing power at all.
Not only this is old like hell, it also shows that physics is important not graphic.
Yes something completely unrelated to graphics shows that they matter. Wow Someone knows nothing of programming... BTW kids, PS2 games used Havok as well. It isnt something only for HD consoles.
Why don't you just go back to playing your Nintendo 64 while the adults talk about grown-up stuff... /sigh
This is about ten times more amazing, though. Just imagine when we see game characters walking around looking like this. Edit @ below: I don't know the technical stuff, so you may be right, but it would probably be possible if you balance things well. Perhaps in games with smaller environments, like Heavy Rain did to get such amazing character models.
@Faster...well no, not current systems because they were very clear that it's running on a 6 core CPU gamming rig with who knows how many GPU's going at it. This video is why we as well as the industry needs the new consoles. This video is also why Sony wanted to BUY Havok. Then they could say it was there super computer that was doing all the work...lol. UC 2 uses Havok. The current gen is hitting it's sweet spot right now with graphics and the next 12-18 months will have games that look incredible...but I think it's time to move on.
Kindly explain ... So with Havok you don't need good hardware? Also, would you happen to know how weak was the machine they used for the demo? Forgive my ignorance.
the article says it was showed on a intel i7 core
direct youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watc... physics FTW, www.videogameszone.de FTL
thaigo costa and Havok those who will make the next gen games super awesome
Amazing, wish games actually ran this level of physics. Well, at least without destroying performance (FPS killer).
if you had an i7....i don't have one neither... i am using a phenom x3 black edition and a gtx260 physx kills a lot of fps. The effects of Havok and physx are just as good... the pc version of mafia 2 has great cloth physics. But hell the whole game gets slowed down like hell... >_>
I got and i7 with a 460GTX or however you place the naming... and I do experience some short slowdowns in mafia2 with physx enabled
is it possible on consoles?
darkside chronicles uses it on wii but doesnt use these physics effects though
PhysX looks just as good or even better than Havok. NVIDIA are the leaders in animation Physics in general.
Can't find it now but these have been demonstarted before..
They really add to gameplay. Not that visuals don't in some ways add to gameplay...but not to the degree that physics can alter an entire games play style.
Please tell me why the scene with the woman in the dress kept making me think HAUNTING GROUND aha. i want a sequel =[
