The Order 1886: Film Effect Helps with Aliasing, More info on the Game’s Impressive Tech Shared

The Order: 1886 is definitely a game designed to impress graphically, and it’s almost surprising that a developer like Ready at Dawn, which comes from PSP development, managed to achieve this kind of fidelity using tools made in-house. One of the men behind that feat is Graphics and Engine Programmer Matt Pettineo, who is also well known for his lectures at Siggraph and GDC.

Recently Pettineo gave some more details about the game’s tech and visual solutions.

I want this game to be awesome!

Enough with the graphics. We know it looks jaw-dropping. Talk about gameplay from now on.

Leave it an option you can toggle like in mass effect. I don't like film grain in games and disabled it in mass effect. No reason they can't do that.

Geekman1588d ago

Who on EARTH disagreed? If all younwant out of games is graphics, don't bother wasting 60 hucks! Just watch a lets play!

So in other words the film grain effect covers up the lack of anti-aliasing in the game? I guess it's easier to get better visuals overall if you can leave out something that can be somewhat taxing like a good version of AA. I'm not saying this is a bad thing, more rather I'm saying it's an interesting use of the effect.

The Order will have 4xMSAA. Show me one other console game that's out and featuring such quality-antialiasing...

The grain will be much better for banding problems that have plagued last generation games and for which antialiasing, no matter how high is not a solution.

Stapleface1588d ago

Whoa there buddy. No need to get defensive. Sorry I haven't kept up with every detail of the game. I read the article and that's what I got out of it. The article should mention the 4xMSAA since it basically states that the film grain effect is there to cover the lack of it. That's great that the game has it. I don't need to show you anything. I never said anything bad about the game. I thought it was interesting that the film grain effect could be used to that effect, apparently that's not the case. But can someone explain why there would be banding issue in the first place to deal with? Yes it was an issue on last gen consoles, but it certainly shouldn't be now. They have plenty of power to work with. If they have the ability, there should be no banding issues to contend with, for there to be a need to cover it up. There, get defensive about that last part. Because it actually needs defending..

KUV19771587d ago

Banding is created by color depth of the image outputted or the display used. I am not sure but I don't think that color depth is really the problem with this-gen titles. Displays are still often a problem but the game developer can't come home to people and swap their screens. Grain works a bit like dithering in this case and makes it a lot harder to notice said banding, even on displays that still suffer from this.

I wasn't being defensive so much as I was and am annoyed that people don't know what they are talking about but at the same time claim that developers use cheap tricks to avoid using expensive AA techniques. The article never claims that the game does not have any aa or that grain is covering this up. In fact only the tweet mentions aliasing. Obviously there is higher aliasing than 4 times but 4 times is pretty damn great for consoles. And what the tweet says is that grain further helps not covers up a lack.

"The Order 1886: Film Effect Helps with "Next Gen" consoles barely being able to outperform 5 year old low end gaming pcs.

You've done a very good job of concealing yourself as a human.

LonDonE1588d ago

that was a awesome response made me LOL HARD!
Why do you have such less bubbles my friend? here let me give you a funny bubble my good sir!!!

bennissimo1588d ago

Because I made a comment that was taken out of context and blown out of proportion and was subsequently accused of being a homophobe by a mod. I lost the bubble when I called the site s**t and accused it of a rampant pro-Sony bias.

Convas1588d ago

Getting kind of tired about reading about teh graphix for this game.

RAD needs to start doing more to convince the public that The Order is more than a pretty corridor shooter.

I need to see that destruction the talked about during the announcement article, the free-form gameplay Pessino ASSURED us is in the game after folk were down on the E3 gameplay.

maniacmayhem1588d ago

I'm really starting to feel that way with a lot of games coming out of the Sony brand where the emphasis seems to be just how pretty the graphics are.

Why o why1588d ago (Edited 1588d ago )

Surprise surprise said nobody

Let's relegate one of the main reasons to upgrade to better hardware to an almost taboo status as not to upset the sensibilities of . . . . . .

I would stay away from these articles like I do patcher ones. No point annoying yourself. I do understand where you're coming from but it's a little disingenuous to go on like sony have a habit of failing to deliver on both graphics and gameplay considering their history. All will revealed in due course. We'll just have to be patient

maniacmayhem1588d ago

One of the reasons is better graphics, but it isn't the only reason and so far all I've been seeing from Sony are how pweety the graphics are.

I would like to see more and I'm sure in time I will but for now it doesn't seem to be happening.

Wni01588d ago

When are they going to share the impressive gameplay tech. Or is it just gfx?
