Robert Duffy talks about Quality modes

Recommended Posts

That is some good news.

Sounds like Medium, High, and Ultra quality arent THAT much different from one another - and that Ultra quality isnt necessarily locked until you get a 512mb card, but if you try to play it WITHOUT a 512mb card, you will get really sloppy performance.

With my Radeon 9800 PRO 128mb, im probably stuck with Medium quality - as High quality works best with 256mb cards ......fuck =/

Well... not too much.

id's games have always taken computers that are two or three times as powerful as the average gamer's system (edit for clarification: to run at max detail) at the time of their release.

If you're talking about the game's requirements for playing at max details -- I would also call that pushing the common level of technology higher than it is currently. This is a good thing, in the end.

By the way, when was the last time you posted something that had something positive in it?

And I suppose you could have done it better right? You could have programmed a totally efficient and sleek engine that renders lights in real time, has an incredible sound system and has other sweet visuals and audio.

I thought all that really matters was the gameplay?

He would have done it better, it would have only been 4k and run on a calculator somehow. He's. That. Good.
