Don't think Skyrim, ME2+3 have tessellation. Most good texture modders will replace the entire texture set, basically anything they can edit. A rabid fanbase is not to be underestimated.

Keep in mind that each game is going to tax storage further than they do now :D

 

RERAM is still making slow progress, I have no idea if they will have anything solid out to consumers ~2017-2018.

 

When I see a worthy 4k texture mod I will change my mind lol

 

Modding scene has always been interesting and fun, compared to current works they are doing an amazing job.  Skyrim looked like a cheesy console port until they started getting their hands on it.

I develop little projects on my spare time, nothing particularly exciting.  cool.gif

Meh. You can get 480GB SSD's cheap(ish) now. In two years 1TB SSDs should be well within the price range of mid level consumers and high end rigs will probably be on 2TB+ drives. I abandoned HDDs about 4 months ago and I've still got 2.5TB of storage.

That was the ME2 mods from ~3 years ago, they're decent. The ME3 mods for the same characters aren't quite as good, imo since they're a different maker.

RERAM is supposedly supposed to kill SSD's in two years, greater storage/price potential.  Lasts longer too, average SSD dies down in 3 years.  I have my write intensive material on my green drive, I don't know how I was living before SSD's came into my life lol.

 

The screenshots look good, the skin on the female character on the first screenshot was my favorite detail.

 

My last project was a complete Cheetahmen engine:

Nothing interesting, has the potential to be playable at least tongue.gif

 

I've made several other game engines, Megaman X, Final Fantasy, and more.  Megaman X was 2.5D, the closest I've ever been to actual 3D work lol.

We'll see. SSD's are quite entrenched now and I expect 3D NAND cells to become more widespread. ReRAM will likely come in at the very top end before filtering down, so you'll get the older cheaper NAND SSDs and the newer "Pro/Enterprise/etc" ReRAM disks at the high end.

 

It looks promising. I'm pretty sure a full remake would entice a few buyers. I'm not a programmer at all(if I can help it).

I'm a 3D/2D guy. Mostly fanart.

Haven't had enough time recently, hoping to get time in summer.

Youtube video doesn't want to work lol, what about 3d ReRAM? XD

All technology is a little pricey to cover r&d/losses, though I can see it costing 0.25/GB.  Not like SSD's are uber expensive either, I've seen the Vertex 3 go for 0.35/GB (old but still better than the cheapo nand they are pushing in the economy ones).

 

I have no talent for modeling or art, alright with manipulating though (nothing to be especially proud of).  If you're looking for something to do over the summer I was thinking about pushing a few multi platform games out, kickstarter would help get the licensing for Android/iOS/Win8.  

 

I don't even know why people made 1080p mainstream, in 2006 a 25xx by whatever was midrange lol.

 

My dad had one of these in 2003:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_T220/T221_LCD_monitors

3840×2400 biggrin.gif

I'd prefer to work on my little personal projects. Too much effort and pressure with a public paid one.

 

1080p was made popular by the film and tv industry. I don't believe a 25xx by xxxx screen was midrange for TFTs in 2003, although my old 16" Sony CRT could handle it.

 

I don't think most people could really justify an $18k or even the revise $8.5k screen. The resolution is a bit too high to be used raw, I'd be straining my eyes a lot with that resolution on a 22.5" monitor. The weird 41Hz refresh rate is just...odd. It's more like a purchasable tech demo, the Crysis of the LCD monitor world.

Haha, 1280x1024 was the standard in 2003, it still is, 10 years later, most office desktops still use these.

 

Higher resolutions have never been mainstream. They've always existed, but never really proved useful beyond a few applications.

 

Apple has made higher PPI screens popular with their retina display, but the thruth is, the viewing distance also matters. A 2560x1440 screen at 0.5m is totally sharp, no pixels noticeable.

To me it seems overkill when you're scaling text to maintain the font size. Yes it looks nice, but it wasn't that bad earlier.

 

Also, the screen quality matters, A LOT.  I don't mind using my Thinkpad R61's 1280x800 screen, because the screen is smooth and wonderful, whereas I still don't like the Dell laptop I use at office (Full HD screen, Viewing angles suck, very rough and jagged colors).

 

The Dell IPS panels, however, are awesome.

Dell IPS monitors use LG panels tongue.gif

High resolution or this:

 

 

I can't stand low resolution screens nor those atrocious optima panels that come with sub $500 notebooks.  Once I sell off my PC by parts I think I might order one of those Catleap/Shimian, worth the risk?

similarly....

 

All brands who market/sell PLS monitors use Samsung panels.

 

...

 

And personally, I've always found the anti glare coating on Dell's to be way too much, lending the overall image (especially white areas) a near "speckled" quality. They are good monitors, though ...

 

My Samsung PLS 1440p monitor has a semi glossy coating that's far superior to my eye and for my personal preferences; it still reflects a bit but the reflections are hugely muted while leaving the whites (and otherwise) unaffected by the coating. The Asus PLS screen uses the same coating as the Samsung, I believe.
