Lmfao this is gonna be SO satisfying when I play it with Rift DK2.
I was against the idea of music when you guys first announced it but... I like that. Goes on a bit long just, would rather a 30 second to 1min soundbyte max.
"For close encounters"
Oh my god. Its goddamn beautiful. Looks like some improvements in anisotropic filtering?
That new renderer is beautiful!
Great news, happy to see you guys finally become happy with the results, like I and many others have been every release of screenshots!
Sounds like so much more than the map adding mod I subscribed to back in 2009, with these engine enhancements, graphics enhancements and all the juicy features added.
I absolutely can't wait now, my system is chomping at the bit to get another stalker game going!
Happy Christmas Dezowave!
Its done when its done! Keep it up dude!
This will be downright pornographic with supersampling on... mmmhmmmm
Was just testing it out on vanilla SHoC there; SSAA in Catalyst does about as good of a job as downsampling on Nvidia, pretty easy on performance too considering the massive visual improvement. Forced AA on Nvidia looked kinda shoddy with a ridiculous performance hit anyway. I just switched from 660ti to an R9 290, taking a while to get used to these drivers lol.
Ahh, virtual reality. Its good to see Carmack getting to finally achieve that goal over at Oculus.
This whole scene looks really nice!
Hahah, never saw this sign before! Where is it?
This is SO Stalker I can hardly handle how awesome it is.
Guys, I'm delighted that you are going to be making revenue from this at release.
I'm studying games development myself, having been following this mod since around 2009/10 and seeing the sheer amount of work you have put into this, you deserve to make money on it.
I might even send you guys money for a round of beers if you make release before summer 2014!
Mother of god they keep getting better. Stahp, or at least supply boxes of kleenex with each pic.....
So clean :3 Keep it up!
Beautiful, really reminds me of the 1979 Stalker film, proper atmosphere going on here!
MUCH cleaner! Should make for much less irritating pop in! On a side note, is there much increase in VRAM usage so far? I know the original only peaks with about 480MB with ENB settings at full whack but it would be interesting nonetheless. There's bound to be some limitations with memory handling in San An's engine.
I'm all for code optimization in everything, this is a wise choice. Stick to it lads!
Nice! Trying to use mods to update San An's graphics is very hard without making it look like a different game but this mod is exactly what I was looking for car wise.
Keep up the good work, been looking for authentic looking texture replacements for ages. Most texture packs make the game look tacky, but this is great!
If you're not already working for a developer go look them up when you guys are finished LURK. This portfolio of stuff is downright amazing!
I'd be glad to help if my games development course wasn't so crap. We're stuck doing c# with an outdated version of XNA game studio and the most basic of code. Bah. Can do a bit of level design, but the standard you guys put out is intense!
Can't wait to see how this engine looks and performs ingame, there seems to be very little aliasing and the detail density you guys put into maps is insane!
Would you guys think of implementing the sound modifications like what Daemonion is working on over in the LURK mod? Its probably too much work but it would be nice! Keep up the good work, I've got a STALKER itch that needs to be scratched :P Also voted for you guys in MOTY again :)
I'm hearing this a lot recently.. Irish climate ftw :P Great clip, as a headphone gamer I can't wait for all the sound improvements in the next LURK!
God I hope they keep the torrent option all the same. Failed http downloads are the kryptonite of my internet bandwidth allowance.
404 on the second link :( game crashes straight away on startup
That preview image is badass! Can't wait to try this out, so much extra added since the last release I tried!
This speaks more sense than any gaming related articles ive seen for a good while now.
Hate this current gen of games and their boring lets-make-more-money-coz-we're-corporations approach to development.
