John Carmack crashes PC gamers' hopes for a High-Resolution Texture Pack on RAGE

DSOGaming writes: "You've probably already heard of a high resolution texture pack for RAGE was rumored to get released after its official launch. This rumored texture pack was supposed to be 150GB in size and would update the game's low-res textures with some proper, high-res ones. Well, this is not gonna happen as John Carmack admited that the source textures are almost the same as the ones that are currently used in RAGE PC." (PC, Rage)

Boy oh boy, the disappointments keep rolling in for Carmack. I don't think I've ever seen someones reputation get destroyed so fast. His reputation was like the "Housing Bubble" cause by the sub-prime mortgages, it was so worthless that you knew it had to crash.

I can understand Low rez text for consoles, but why not PC
While his game may not be best looking on consoles, i think he did a great job.

But on PC, he half assed the shit out of it.

@ Kaveti

You should talk, you joined this site 2 years after I did, and yet you've managed to make 2000 more comments than I have. Being out of touch with reality has more in common with believing that Carmack is a God or a Legend. He's neither, in fact I'd say he's a "has been" that needs to not only shut his mouth, but also to shut the doors to this studio, as they have produced nothing of any significance in the last 10 years.

"as they have produced nothing of any significance in the last 10 years. "

I know Carmack and his studio fucked up, but why the fuck does everyone keep saying this? They did Doom 3, which alone was pretty damn significant on Xbox and PC. To deny that is a fucking joke. They also helped with Quake 4, another big PC release.

Just because they didn't have a lot of presence on consoles back then doesn't mean shit.
DeadlyFire  +   1315d ago
Do you guys really think this bothers the PC community? Have you not seen what gamers have given DOOM 3 with their own created High-Res Texture pack. Does a PC gamer need some extra crap like that on a disc? We already have visual lead.

I personally believe PC edition should have only shipped with High-Res textures and no low res ones, but hey can't change that. Just build a Texture pack and throw it in the game. Its moddable anyway since its on the PC platform. Just give it some time. Someone will do it.
Perjoss  +   1315d ago
kaveti6616 is 100% right, a bunch of raving haters does not = all gamers. Just remember that people that love Rage will not seek out a forum to rave about it, they will be playing it!

Carmack's biggest mistake with Rage was putting such a high priority on 5+ year old technology (consoles) instead of focusing on PC. I get the feeling future games from id will be different, they will still be tech 5 but optimised for PC and I can't wait.

I'm not anti-console, there are plenty of amazing developers that focus heavily on consoles so it will make no difference to console gamers if id turns back to its roots.
Darrius Cole  +   1315d ago
I agree with Perjoss. I am a console gamer (PS2, Xbox, PS3, 360, PSP) and have never bought a game on PC, at least not yet.

I think developers get greedy and become dissatisfied 'being what they are'. It looks like Carmack and ID are PC developers who saw the console pasture and thought it was greener but forgot to take care of their real base first. You can tell where their real base is by looking at who care most when they screw up. Clearly PC guys are more offended by Rage. ID should have said to themselves, "We are PC developers first, most of our fans and games are on PC."

Rage should have been made to PC gamers expectations and then ported to consoles as best they could port. The fact is, once Uncharted 3 and Modern Warfare release, in 2 and 3 weeks respectively; console gamers won't give Rage another moments consideration. More importantly they won't sell any more copies on either console. Rage will be totally forgotten.

I suppose ID saw the success of the Elder Scrolls and Battlefield series in moving over from PC and wanted to try doing that themselves. But so far they have fallen short, they have done anything that console gamers would miss. BF and ES took care of the home base first (have you seen the BF3 PC footage?)

Console gamers won't care one bit if ID goes back to their PC roots.

^ I'm playing Rage on PC.

Get a constant 60fps and the game has some of the best visuals-over-performance ratio of any game I've played on my PC so far.
... and this is on an ATI GPU as well.

The launch was a bit rough, but the last patch fixed most of my woes.
Textures also appear fine to me.
I feel like I'm playing in concept art.

Don't see why the game should've been exclusive to 360.

How did he screw the ps3 version? I have the ps3 version and its among the best looking titles ive played on ps3 and it has a steady 60fps. Only problem is texture popin that you have to look for. You only notice it if you spin around really fast and look for it. This game on consoles is a technical marvel and its fun as hell.
cjflora  +   1315d ago
Not me, EVERY time I turn the camera I have very slow and distracting texture pop in. I would almost prefer they just stay low texture so that it isn't so distracting. The only time the game looks nice is when I'm not moving, which isn't very often.

Your comment doesnt make sense. Do you always post nonsense?
qwertyz  +   1316d ago
you can unlock higher res textures for RAGE by editing the config file but you'll need vram but even with 1gb you can still double the texture resolution without having much of an issue. even without advanced settings tweaked and all the problems with the pc version it still looks better on my high end rig nvidia powered rig than anything on consoles :/ PC FTW!!!!!

yeah the pc version of course could have looked MUCH better if carmack had shifted his focus from 360 and spend more time on the oc version but well looks like hes an xbot because the ps3 version was also inferior to the 360 version in the visual and performance departments(proven by digital foundries)and with far more texture pop-ins than the 360 version running without ANY hdd install which is complete B.S because the ps3 version requires an 8gb MANDATORY install

Yeah, PS3 gamers, like myself, are really going to love that(sarcasm)....spending 8GB of storage for what is still a weaker performance. It looks like ID got almost finished with development and realized that they made a broken and unplayable PS3 game, and Sony bailed them out by allowing an 8GB installation in order to make the game playable.

@thedarkvault
Shouldnt be too long before the price drops. Its not a bad game but most gamers expected more for the price and the hype around it.

My game ran great on my GTX580 so texture loading wasnt an issue for me. I just found it very linear, repetitive with very little exploring.

Despite what you've been told, a $60 price tag is NOT just the result of packaging and marketing adding to the price. It's what the publisher wants to charge for the game. If PC games are $50 it's because that's what the Publisher wants to charge, simple as that. Entitlement is foolish.
trancefreak  +   1315d ago
It is the new trend and I don't really see it stopping.

If they want to starve pc gamers of good games then the pricing will continue and take note more PC gamers will just not buy the product. Its not even that though medal of honor sucked IMO and it was 59.99 U.S I guess that is EA games for ya along with activision.

Company's have their pricing model in place and PC games should be 10 dollars cheaper but they believe feel that they should sell them for the same amount as console? why? Greed for the green and since console gamers pay that price why not tap the PC gamers as well.

We all know of the console Licensing fees so why should we pay the extra bucks. That is the question.

Im not really stating facts or sources but its just what I have observed from recent trends. An example being crysis 2 shipping with so many problems - DX11 and high end gaming options. Even with all the fixes that game does not deserve its price.

Crytek wont even support the game crysis 2 anymore. There are known issues for the game and they are dropping patch support for these issues along with their broken online hack fest that made most online gamers just move on. They have no community interaction and I wont buy Crytek products anymore.

Valve still sells their games for a fair price and they support them for ever. More company's' need to follow the valve model.

It also appears taking Cryengine 3 and Now IDTech 5 that when they release their game with the new game engine their seems to to be big issues technically and unfortunately.

instead of just being a man and apologizing to Gamers and fixing his game he has blamed AMD, Nvidia, PC Gamers, The Cell, The PS3, Microsoft, Xbox360 designers, Pc Gamers again, and other horse crap for the performance and texture issues of Rage!

I used to think the same way as u used to, but that changed with Rage. I actually really enjoy the game, and it's really pretty as long as you don't get too close to the textures (then yes, it lookes like crap). The weapons, artstyle, setting and characters are easily the best I've seen in a game from ID so far.
#3.1.1 (Edited 1316d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(2) | Report
Sarcasm  +   1316d ago
The biggest lacking point of Rage is the gameplay. It's pretty boring and repetitive.

1. Talk to NPC.
2. NPC tells you to talk to other NPC.
3. Talk to other NPC which tells you to talk to another NPC.
4. NPC then sends you on a mission to kill X amount of enemies.
5. Return to NPC and then tells you again to talk to another NPC.
6. Rinse and repeat.

Im not sure how the rest of the game is because I didn't get that far enough.

Graphics do look great though, but it's like seeing a super hot woman who has a pimple on her nose. The blurry textures ruin the overall high resolution look of the game, and the strange random frame drops in car combat (even though fraps is showing it's locked at 60fps) is puzzling. And don't get me started on the texture pop ups when looking around.

zero_gamer  +   1316d ago
This whole rebellious "pirate cuz it sux" is getting a bit ridiculous don't you think? Much of the reasons behind developers focusing on consoles over the PC is due to piracy. They see pirated copies as lost potential sales and many devs have lost confidence in PC gaming as a result.

I for one don't pirate PC games because of my respect for the platform and want to support it with my wallet. I have not purchased RAGE because I am not liking what the gamers say about the PC version. I'll purchase this game once it hits the bargain bin and patched up to the point the game is actually in a playable state.
vortis  +   1315d ago
Steamworks > piracy.

They want to avoid piracy? How about make the game digital download only. Yeah there's still a way around Steam just like there are still ways to pirate Xbox 360/PS3 games, but if they really wanted to win back PC gamers they would stop treating the community like $2 hoes and instead start treating the community like $1000 escorts.

Just saying.
kaveti6616  +   1316d ago
I believe the comment he wrote begins with "Our first test...."

Our FIRST test.

Be patient. Carmack delivers. iD delivers.

This has happened before. It will be fixed.

Crytek took the same flak for 3 months and then released a high res DX11 texture pack.

Although Rage won't have DX11 support, I'm positive that Carmack will deliver a major texture pack.
john2  +   1316d ago
You honestly believe that the artists of iD will sit down and re-create all those textures (or even re-touch them via Photoshop) when the actual source textures are as detailed as the ones we already have?

PS: Keep in mind that they won't get paid for such thing so I really doubt that iD will waste their time with such attempts. This is a company and not a modder that does such things in his free time

Why do people keep saying "Consoles is where the money is" when it has been proven that the PC makes up more than Half of the total gaming revenue? Subtract the Wii money numbers and the PC makes more money than the PS3/360 combined!

I think the phrase should be "Consoles is where the Easy Money is" cause PC gamers do not buy Crap Games! Bad Company 2 Two Worlds 2 Portal 2 Metro 2033 are a couple of examples of games selling more on the PC than on consoles and these are Quality games. where as a crap title like Brink will sale on the console or make money through Gamefly buying rental copies!

Devs have a formula that they can have $15 million dollar game budget, port the game to the PS3 and PC (360 lead platform), sell about 1.5 million units across 3 platforms, and pocket around $35 million in profit.

The games are mediocre and i have seen this done many many times! I'm for quality titles not mediocre stuff that's really only good for renting in which Rage is....just a rental!

Could well be jumping to conclusions here and taking it out of context, the 8k or 16k increase which you can do now in the cfg improves the texture quality a bit.

Depends on what Carmack means by source textures, the originals or the ones already installed
vortis  +   1315d ago
He means the source material that was used. The textures were obviously designed primarily for the Xbox 360 as lead, they didn't even bother for HQ alternatives for PC. It just goes to show where they spent most of their time optimizing the game.

PC gamers should revolt by not buying the game, especially considering that had PC been lead platform it could have really made id Software look relevant in today's generation of gaming. All I see with RAGE is a prettier but less interesting version of Borderlands.

Nah, they marketed the game as running on next-gen middleware (id Tech 5) but the game was developed on the Xbox 360 as the lead and was poorly ported over to PC. To add insult to injury the digital PC version of RAGE costs $60 and has poor optimization.

I dont understand all the bitching...im running Rage on a gtx590 and it looks stunning!

Sure there are some textures that dont look as good as they should have and if you stick your face up a wall it has no details.

But who in their right mind walks around studying textures on objects or licks the walls for details.

The pc community is a bunch of gfx whores that should be glad a game like this is on the plattform and looking as good as it is. It's gorgeous!!

And with all this bitching id might just skip the pc all tougheter next time around...games sell more then enough on the consolles to skipp pc once and for all for some companies.

It's ok Carmack, you can gimp the PC all you want since you sure as hell won't be getting any of my money with the version you guys released for the PC

This comments page right here is why N4G is considered such a deranged irrelevant festering crap pit of ignorant delusional stupidity and furious crybaby drama. Carmack is still awesome and you slobbering idiots are nothing whatsoever but silly.

Well said palaeomerus bubble for you!

I'd ask you why we're delusional for questioning why we should pay $60 for a game on PC that wasn't optimized for PC?

I'd also ask you why it's "ignorant" or "delusional" to find out that another system (less powerful I might add) has better optimization and was used as the lead platform for clearly next-gen software?

I'd go on to ask why consumers shouldn't be picky, why we shouldn't complain in comparison to the kind of quality we were used to receiving from id Software (since you know, they wouldn't be where they are today without the PC community) and why settling for whatever we're force-fed through marketing is somehow good?

However, all these questions go to waste because you, sir, only have one bubble. I guess that speaks volumes right there.

This is what all the graffiti in the game is going to look like on PC, if a modder has to individually paint each object themselves in order to make it look good.
