    Agreed. I did some tests with this shader on Unity before, and while it sounds cool on paper, it ended up being just a distraction. My feeling was that it didn't work well because the underlying render was still generated in 1080p, then downscaled and upscaled again, instead of actually being rendered at a lower resolution from the get go. Devil Daggers has this same effect but it works perfectly there. I suspect that since it's a custom engine, it renders at a lower resolution and then upscales to 1080p, instead of rendering in 1080p and lowering to the target resolution, and upscaling again (like the unity shader does). Or maybe the guy was just really smart about how he used the effect and made it "feel good". These are just suppositions, I could be talking out of my ass here! Anyways, this looks really sick Proud of Vivi

    I'll Pay to recreate The Specialist on Source properly

    For a second, I thought this was EOT Hall of Fame material but then I noticed you are (probably) serious Good luck... I hope you can turn all that rage into a kickass game, the world could definitely use another Specialists

    Wrath: Aeon of Ruin

    I watched this with a huge grin on my face FUCK YES
  5. People are hating this game so much that I kind feel like playing it... out of curiosity... but I'm not paying $60 bucks for an early access game It will probably be a really good game in about a year or so!

    Looking great!! One thing I noticed by watching the video is that every area feels a bit similar, which makes the map harder to navigate for first time players. One way to solve could be by color coding some areas, or having strong themes in specific areas, restricting specific props only to those areas. Let's say, CT spawn has majorly blue signs/lighting, Bomb sites are mostly red/orange, maybe the middle of the map has a lot of vegetation, the subway could have green walls etc... so you know exactly where you are without having to think about it. You have an incredibly solid base and with some minor readability/navigational/lighting tweaks, this map will be really special! Here's an example of how we did this in Lijiang Tower in Overwatch:

    WIP in WIP, post your level screenshots!

    If I can give you one tip is to blockout the whole map before you start making the actual buildings I used to make this mistake all the time and because of that I finished like 5% of the maps I started haha.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    I was also playing the remake last year, got pretty far along but never finished it. Should totally go back! I never played the original back in the day, though I played 2 and 3 to death, so it felt awesome to play the remake without knowing anything and figuring the game out by myself. Great game, and the environments are some of the best!

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Great demo, definitely a buy (and God I can't wait until we are over the "screen space" phase in rendering tech, the reflections breaking in some hallways totally kill the immersion for me!)

    Goals for 2019?

    Great goals Glad to see you back! About a year and a half ago I woke one day and didn't want to get out of bed. I felt/feel "sadness" all the time, but I had never felt that empty and scared before. Something was stirring deep inside me and I was afraid that I would have no control over it. I decided to look for help and found a Jungian psychoanalyst. It was the best decision I made. We dived deep into my unconscious mind and "fixed" a lot of issues that bothered me about myself, and she helped me integrate a new side of my personality that was emerging at the time. So much of our behavior and thoughts are affected by subconscious programming and common archetypes, there's so much power when you understand who you are and become able to reprogram your mind to better suit your goals Definitely give therapy a shot man!

    Goals for 2019?

    - Smoke less weed - Work more often on my stuff - Make another gumroad tutorial, Unity/Unreal asset store packs - Spend less time on the celphone (maybe revert to a flip phone but this is a stretch goal) - Save more money - Keep making my girls happy and loved - Call my mom more often - Try to play more games (I literally played 0 games in 2018) - Go back to Poland, maybe visit Greece - Hang out with friends more - Spend less time contemplating the ceiling - Be more focused and smarter at work (so I work less and get more done) - Go to GDC - Get better at guitar or maybe learn piano - Be less of a dick to Seldoon - Be the best human being I possibly can

    And there we go... the entitlement generation now will not only have infinite choices of what to watch, but also choose how stories unfold! They are going to be so happy! This generation is truly doomed (<-- this is what age does to a man, he becomes cynical and starts barking at trees)
