Apparently, the Dragon Age team at Bioware added many "awesome" things to Frostbite engine and made DICE very happy.
what? did they make the engine not lag when playing an online multiplayer?
You are the most funny and clever person ever. You should be extremely proud of yourself.
My Modesty would agree to this, thanks.
Actually i found that quite funny... Battlefield 4 is a lag and bug fest.
Jeez, I play on the PC and it honestly isn't anywhere close to as bad as you guys make it sound. Very few problems to speak of. Are the console versions that messed up? Or are you playing on PC and I'm just lucky? Then again, I mostly played the campaign and don't play a whole lot of multiplayer which I know is the meat of the game for many people.
@starchild I'm on ps4 and the only problems I have happen in conquest matches when theres a lot happening, especially explosions and buildings being destroyed. Hardly any lag on other game modes. The single player is perfectly smooth outside of saves being deleted. Havent been brave enough to try again on the campaign but I do believe its still an issue.
@Starchild It's really not as bad as the N4G as people make out. Conquest can be laggy and there are a few annoyances but it's more than playable and if it weren't there wouldn't be people ranked 100 plus. When the game launched it was a hell of a mess but now? It's really not that bad.
I imagine that 50% of the people who complain the most have never so much as seen the game in action. Better to disregard, or just be all like "lawlz lawlz lawlz lawlz roflawlz mclawlz"
I'm wondering if this makes certain things easier now, and thus allowing them to fix things faster.
Lol @ the disagrees when his statement is so obviously true. EA have some secret butthurt spies on N4G? Edit: @starchild PC version might be ok now(from what you are saying), but before it wasn't and that's what matters http://youtu.be/MknLARblrDQ
It isn't okay even now, sadly....
Starchild, you do realize you replied to a comment that claims the multiplayer lags, then you accuse him of being extremely dramatic about the issues, and then you admit that you dont play multiplayer...? You do realize you did this, right?
I do play the multiplayer, I simply don't put hundreds of hours into it. I haven't had the kinds of extreme problems some people seem to have.
you must not be playing on a proper pc runs like butter for me, 1440p, all ultra, 60 frames bf4 is awful on ps4/xbox1 sure, that's to be expected, they cannot handle that type of game heck, isn't it 900p on ps4 and 720p on xbox1?? gross
Just finished a match on Golmud Railway on PS4. Runs fine for me. 60fps 64players 900p. Didn't run into any problems. So.... whats so awful about this?
This has nothing to do with graphics quality or even optimizations. We're talking bugs and lousy netcode.
Its fine for me on PS4. Only problem I have is the occasional boot from an error message and well it deleted my campaign, but I was only playing that as an experiment. I never gave a crap about it.
An Engine that causes major glitching in campaigns?
I didn't have problems with BF4 campaign but yes, the multiplayer has severe issues.
flying fire breathing dragons in battlefield, scar-h with acog and underbarrel shotgun in dragon age... nuff said.
Maybe BioWare can help DICE fix BF4?
That would be awesome, if a bit weird
They added the story system for dialogue etc Databases for spells, character progress etc, Basically all the rpg stuff that bioware are awesome with were never in the engine. Bioware shoved it in. Their special sauce.
This. We are finally seeing the fresh fruits of EA buying Bioware. Swtor certainly spoiled the last batch and didn't help them.
Although, SWTOR was made by 'Bioware Austin' and not the original Bioware studio in Canada, so it's still all good.
Plays fine for me after the update , don't see what you guys complaining about play for awhile fun ass game!
And in related news id software has privately thanked Infinity Ward for making it's engine very easy to quickly re-skin and re-texture it and calling brand new every two years.
lol EA loves to release unpolished game especially FPS due to COD threat.
They be like WE RELEASED OUR GAME FIRST!!! Take that ACTIVISION. They really don't care about anything else it seems, but the game is okay most of the time for now.
hit detection (netcode) is one of the awesome changes?...
BF4 players would love this for sure, but I somehow doubt it is the case
Its called learn to aim. People complain about hit detection, but if you aim right it lands every time. There is always a shot here and there that misses. If your playing with less than 5mbps on 64 player mode then you will see some hits miss occasionally.
pls stop defending bad programming, i had so many sure shot moments which didn't hit just like most of people playing BF4 had experienced too (you can also look for many videos on youtube showing how bad the hit detection is). Even F2P fps games have better netcode than BF4.
It doesn't land every time... I have clips I recorded of shotguns at point blank range, with reticule on the player and the sound of the shot being fired, resulting in my player dying, and the enemy at 100% health.
