Cool screens, but I'm intrested in the color of the droid Obi-wan is about to dismantle, is it just me or do it's markings look kind of gold-yellow? Possibly the droid commander unit?

Leviathan
08-17-2005, 01:47 PM
It's probable, but I don't think it is a droid commander... It should have more yellow marks on its body...

Darth Andrew
08-17-2005, 03:39 PM
I thought the droid commander (judging from Episode I) simply had a yellow circle on the front of its torso and the back of its head was also yellow. Unless they changed the colors during the Clone Wars, this may be a new unit....

ParanoidAndroid
08-17-2005, 04:00 PM
I doubt it's a new unit, it's probably a commander givin it's yellow markings, but they just detailed it poorly, making it's whole upper torso yellow instead of just a spot on the front, and now yellow marks on the back of the head. At least they got the color right this time though, unlike for the other battle droids.

Hmm... are these graphics a lot better than the Battlefront I graphics? I've only ever seen Battlefront I played live, and it was on a laptop. The textures and modelling seem kind of rough and unpolished at this point...

Mr Flibble
08-18-2005, 06:52 PM
The textures seem a bit flat.
Like the floor on the top one.
Not that players will be looking at the floor, its the character models that count, and those are nice.

That third one still bugs the crap out of me. The x wing and the TIE are along side eachother, whats up with that? And it generally doesnt look right.

Also, not wanting to be picky, but you know, the beam effect in the second looks a bit N64ish.

Nice pics! The droid in the first pic looks wierd, but it might be like that because of the angle. It might be the Droid Commander Unit. Judging from the second pic, I guess you'll fight in space on the Pollis Massa map. Droids don't need air, and clone troopers can use extra equipment for air. They walked on a ship in space in the CW cartoon. Also, in the third pic, I am also wondering what that light thing is on top of the Star Destroyer. Maybe it's the bridge? Most likely it might be the bridge, and that'd be cool if you could actually walk on the bridge and watch the battle from the viewport.

It is the Blaster Rifle used by Standard Battle Droids in SWBF I... (To see it, just play on Naboo, in Historical Campaign mode)
Droids don't need air, and clone troopers can use extra equipment for air.
And for heat ! Polis Massa's atmosphere is cold, as in Space...

hmmm, I think this is a huge ask. A game that combines TPS/FPS, space combat and jedi capabilities is just too ambitious if you ask me... maybe possible for the next gen consoles, but current platforms/PCs ??

If only LA got off their can and make a decent space combat game in the tradition of X-Wing Alliance and its predecessors. The Rogue Squadron games were fun and did look awesome, but just lacked that depth that XWA etc had.

Still, I want to play BFII just to get to run around on an alderaanian blockade runner! I love those ships :)

Well it cant be fuel ejection since the TIE bomber's fuselage is bracketed by a pair of solar gather panels... it has to be vapor. :)

Darth Andrew
08-20-2005, 12:46 AM
I think the vapor trails are there to show that the craft is using it's speed boost. Yes, it's very unrealistic, but there aren't a whole lot of other options (though a blur effect like the speeder bike's would work nicely instead).

Jacmert
08-20-2005, 01:24 AM
Well, they could have increased engine flare... not a vapor trail.

That would make the most sense. Let's get that in before release! :p

Such an effect would become quickly tiring for eyes...

ToppDog
08-20-2005, 01:03 PM
If it's anything like the Jump to Lightspeed expansion for SWG, the vapor trails are an optical effect added in to give the illusion of traveling at high speeds, while in actuality the fighters are just creeping along at a turtles pace inside a small sized map made for FPS style gameplay & not for a true space/flight sim where the crafts can travel at more realistic speeds without running out of room.

Listen to you guys waisting your life with video games and talking about how many yellow stripes some droid has, stop waisting your life, how is this getting you anywhere. For me, i like playing a few games occasinally, but i don't study the games, and know more about what kind of weapon droid number A3261 had in episode 4 than the creator of the series did. Anyways thought you would like to know my view.

This is no place for you to lecture us on how we should be spending our lives. It's summer vacation FFS (at least where I live), so I think if people want to discuss what color or weapon a droid is supposed to have then they should be able to do so without someone on their high horse telling them to go get a life.

Now please, use the internet for good, not evil.

computer graphics are bad and controllers on computers are too

Umm, ok, here are some facts.

First of all, Xbox graphics are bad, they can only display on a TV at around 320x240 screen resolution, (with standard cables without modding) and a (whimpy) pc (depending on the monitor) can go way higher than 1024x768. 1024x768 is 3.2 TIMES the pixels than 320x240.

Im not looking directly at this right now, but I think the Xbox only has 4 mb of video ram. My pc video card (a whimpy one for todays standards) has 256 mb of video ram. This means that it can load BETTER and more detailed graphics than an Xbox.

Xboxes have 833 MHz Pentium III processors in them. The latest gaming pcs have 3.8 GHz pentium 4 processors and you can even overclock them to 4.0 GHz.

And guess what? All consoles are computers! Mostly the Xbox, because it is made by guess who? Microsoft. Arent they the ones who made MICROSOFT Windows? Xboxes are pcs with specialized hardware and software.

And to add to all of that, the Xbox is basically a whimpy 3-4 year old pc with very limited enchancements, using games specially downgraded to run nicely on it. And, the only reason it looks good is because you sit far away from a TV, and even though it doesnt have many pixels, it looks good far away. On a pc, it looks good close up because monitors nowadays have more than 3.2 times the pixels that your TV does.

There, sorry, had to vent my anger. And for controllers: Get a game controller to USB adapter! I got one and I can use one of my PS2 controllers as the controller. (Or get Belkin's Nostromo SpeedPad n52)

O yeah, I have been browsing a while, but didnt register! I finally did! YAY!!

Ya, consoles don't give you ANY control over your game. With PC games, you can add/mod to the game, thats just barely(if at all) possible on consoles. One time I was talking to someone who played battlefront on xbox,
he asked me "why do you play on PC?"
I said "you have alot more control and you can add maps and mods, etc"
he said "Ya, well, on xbox we have Jabba's Palace too"

Its interesting though cause of the planet's sizes, the shadows must be casted onto their surfaces and u would see the shadow as the size the ship would be on that planet, and if thats an X Wing shadow.. not looking good..

Shadows. What shadows? Why do you people think its a shadow? One reason its not a shadow: There are no shadows from the other fighters. Why aren't they there? All the ships would have shadows if one does. Don't say they are at the wrong angle. If its a shadow from a ship is in the picture, you would see other shadows. It is most likely part of graphics of the planet. It would not look like much of a planet if it was smoothly covered in green.

What about that blue bar. I've never seen a health bar that was light blue, dark blue, then light blue again. Health bars are normally two colors. They shrink towards the right or left side, not the center. Could it be the engines of a new ship that we are seeing? The ship would be flying away from us, so we would only see its engines buring.

Also, what it that greenish thing in frount of the closest Imperial Bomber? If its some type of rocket, what are they shooting at?
