SCREENS Draw Distance at MAx?
Posted 11 May 2005 - 07:59 PM
Sure, it's certainly higher, but not THAT much.
I can only assume that any show off scren would be taken with the gaem set to max detail, sin ce i see no jaggies they must use high FSAA. So you';d figure the draw distance woudl be maxed as well.
HAve we been fed lies?
Of course I'll get it in any case, it's just been bugging me. [COLOR=yellow]

That tall building in the background is like a kilometer away, and can't be seen on the PS2 until well past halfway to it from where the pic is taken. The PC version screens draw just as far, though the scale isn't as easy to distinguish as the above. Although this one looks rather impressive. Just look at the trees on the far side of the freeway junction...

|You're all forgetting that (on the PC at least) changing the draw distance is as simple as editing two files. The weather data and the binary IPL which controls level of detail.|
not just that but there is also a basic option in the display menu

Looks further than VC PC for sure...

I took that screen through a connection straight from my PS2 to my camcorder to my PC. I did enter the really sunny cheat, too, to make sure that the smog/fog wouldn't be a problem in comparison. Compare to this:
Once you are done laughing at the PS2, bow to the PC

You can only just see that funny looking tower on the hill.
Heres PC for comparison...

With this comparison I am very satisfied with the new draw distance... unless the screenshots are just "false hope" like it happens with many games, but I doubt it.
I hope the game at the end will be like we have seen it.

That looks massively improved.
