Are you sure it's set on that resolution? I could have sworn that the only res. available in the demo is 800x600.

sure it looks fine but, for 1024x768 , c'mon, it doesnt look great at all, even aoks 1024x768 looked better, but i dont wanna judge yet until the full version comes out, i just posted this to see if u guys knew if this was the final graphics.

I can't really compare SWGB with AOK as I've never played AOK, but I was completely satisfied with the graphics. They are crisp, sharp and I don't confuse the units with their counterparts.

Fire effects were really well done. The grenader units from the rebels in the single campain mission were cool (had 4 on my side with a little convincing from the Dark Lord himself ). The grenade explosions looked like fireworks, but I assume the proper graphics will be in place for the full game.

All in all, very happy with the graphics. :laughing:

youve gotta be kidding me, crisp and sharp graphics, im running a geforce 3 and i dont see what u see, i see that it looks ok, but not crisp sharp or smooth. plz whoever knows anything about how the graphics will look plz reply, also if this is the final. all i want is for the graphics to look alot sharper and smoother, other than that gameplay is exellent . no complaints on that. in the options menu it says its set to 1024x768 but it looks like 640x480.

the graphics look fine, so i don't know what your whining about.......but yes, they can go up another resolution notch.......

I am more worried about some of the animations, which defiantly need work.............. ;)

Oh yeah, all you lil newbies, I'm going to have o so much fun when this thing comes out full version and I play it.

letcha know, all these lil cheep ass strategys age of kings players work for galatic battlegrounds...I can out econ you, out boom ya and all ;-)

Oh yeah, graphics are crapo. it does look like 640x480

If i'm not mistaken it says 1024*768 on the main menu, but then on the MP menu the only one available if 600*800. I could be wrong though.

Either way, it look fine already, and has at least 1 more notch it can go up.

The resolution in the game does say 1024*768 but that has to be a mistake. Maybe its a gliche, the graphics dont look smooth at all.

Hey, I'm just telling ya what it looks like on my machine. There could be any number of factors effecting the quality on your machine. What size monitor do you have?

They have been posting screens of this game for like 5 months, why are you surprised at how they look? They have also been telling you that it uses the AOK engine...if you use somebody elses engine there's only so much you can make look different so why are you whinning?

The arguement that you use a Geforce3 is invalid, the AoK engine uses software rendering, therefore a GF3 will look no nicer than a S3 Trio 4mb vid card. Personally the graphics look fine, yes the setup screen in AoK engine has always been 800x600, the game plays in 1024x768 by default. Im using a 19" monitor so it looks a bit rough but I've played worse games... Force Commander! ;)

people get this straight, it uses the aok engine, it doesnt even look better than aoks graphics, thats my point ok. second thing if u were a real gamer u would know how 1024x768 looks like , and obviously your not cuz your still trying to fight with me with that. 3rd yes i did see the pictures but there too blury to tell how it would really look. you people that r trying to go against me put your aok disc in and set the graphics to 1024x768, then tell me that u see no difference, if u do tell me that it would be a joke cuz i know that there is a big difference in the appearance. and yes i know that a geforce 3 wouldnt matter for this game but that was just to let you know that i am beyond the requirments for this game. also like i said im not trying to put the game down, i just want info if this will be the final graphics.

Man you are an idiot! These graphics look great! Compare them to Starcraft or Diablo II even. In this game i can look at a storm trooper and i can almost make out his face...in Starcraft you look at a zealot and you a big mess of intersecting pixels, which are supposed to look ok from a distance i guess and also in Diablo II which has BIGGER characters you look at those guys and the assassin has no mouth or nose, and those are bigger characters. Plus the scale of units to buildings in Starcraft is absoultely horrible. The zealots stand almost as tall as a Robotics factory which is supposedly supposed to be a place that assembles Reavers an artillery unit. That means they are saying that the zealots are like 17 feet tall then. No one complained about that...no one complains about the assassin being mouthless and eyeless. Why is everyone ripping these graphics up...look at a watch tower in Warcraft 3...looks like a cardboard cut-out from a coloring book.

your the damn idiot punk, seems to me u dont know sh... , dont compare the game to starcraft because thats hella old, dont compare the game to diablo either cuz i never said that diablo has good graphics . what im saying is that the graphics says its set to 1024x768 , do u have any idea how 1024x768 is suppose to look , NO U OBVIOUSLY DONT BECUZ, diablo 2 plays at 800x600, and thats why it doesnt look that great, and thats what u tried to compare it too. damn, go play a game like kohan which plays at 1024x768 automatically and compare it too swbg at 1024x768 . also ab0out the troopers DAMN, HOW COULD U SAY THAT IT LOOKS NICE. o my god, heres some advise to u. stop playing aok which u most likely do play because your so impressed by the graphics and check out the graphics in emperor battle for dune. kohan, conquest frontier wars. and i bet youll be looking at aok and swbg like ... O MY GOD < redstarz is rite. but anyways my point is not to put swbg down its just that i want to know if thats the final graphics. SERIOUSLY FOR THE PEOPLE WHO R GONNA REPLY AND SAY SWBG LOOK GREAT SET AT 1024X768. U BETTER BUY ANOTHER RTS GAME THAT SUPPORTS 1024X768 AND THEN POST YOUR OPINION... ALSO PLAY EMPEROR AND ZOOM IN , AND CHECK OUT HOW THE UNITS LOOK, I BET YOUR JAW WILL DROP

oh sure the graphics in Battle for dune look nice.....but i would prefere to play Dune 2 than that pile of crap......what a HUGE let down.....gameplay is just plain BORING.......and they made the devasator a giant walking mech!?!?!? what were they thinking?

enough of my rant.......

well gameplay is all preference and everyone has there own opinions on what kinda gameplay they like , the topic here is that i dont think that swgb looks very nice set at 1024x768 , it may just be on the demo though, but thats what im trying to clear up. all i want to know is if the 1024x768 is an error on the demo, or if its true and if that will be the final graphics for the retail version. another thing, i think the devastators look awesome.
