From what ive heard is that kotor 2 will use same engine as kotor
is this true? it is both good and bad.

1.Bad then its not even worth buying.

2.Maybe , because theni have learned all about its modding etc.

anyone knows the answer to this?

i don't think it needs a new engine. you know the old saying 'if it aint broke don't fix it' well its very true in this case.

i didn't fall in love with kotor because of the graphics, even though they were good. no, i fell in love with kotor because of the fantastic gameplay.
as long as they put as much effort into that then who cares if it uses the same engine.

since obsidian are doing it it will be the same engine but with different animations and models or sometihng... i know bugger all of the technical side of games but thats just my guess!


or would this mean its a similar but modified engine??

I think the old engine is fine wouldn't mind some improved graphics and more animations but if the story is as compelling i wouldn't complain about an identical engine

It sounds like you are mistakenly thinking that better graphics and animations = improved engine. It is not so.

This is not wholely dependant on the graphics engine. The engine provides abilities to do certain things, but the quality of the models and animations is dependant on the artists.

Models are fairly independant of the graphics engine, as are the animations. The graphics engine limits what you can do, and newer engines allow you to do more things. But it is still up to the artists to take advantage of that. A game using the Doom III engine can still have models that look like crap, and older engines can still mave models that look fantastic.

The animations look like they do because that is how the artists and animators wanted them to look, not because they are using a certain engine.
