I don't know if anybody else noticed, but one of the first things I saw in the screenshots was THERE ARE NO TRIANGLE SPARKS!!!!

Just thought I'd tell everyone :p

Obi Wan is gonna suck....the game developers have lost interest in it now because they couldnt get it to do what they wanted it to do!

The stupid thing is that on the x-box it would take no time at all to do proper little circles... Those triangles are just laziness.

Oh, there's some serious graphic rape being done by Raven. JK2 looks so much better, typical Crap-Box. :p

Well, a triangle is certainly going to render faster than a quad, which is basically two triangles. Additionally, they don't look textured, which probably makes them even cheaper to render. If you had thousands of them on-screen at once and they're all moving in cool ways, I don't imagine you'd notice and you could probably do at least twice as many particles this way. With particle type effects, volume and quantity matter.

The problem is that we're only seeing screenshots. If those things were in motion ( and moving very quickly ) and output to a blurry ol' tv, it would be far less likely that you'd even notice that it was a triangle.

So, as I said, it's just that it's a still shot and output to a nice crisp format for us to display on our hi-res monitors. Until we can see them in motion, I wouldn't worry too much.

Weirdo :cool:
