HVS Tony: Graphics and frame-rate in splitscreen

#1naruto3336Posted 4/25/2010 6:31:29 AM

I was just wondering how the graphics would look in the splitscreen mode. More importantly, I wanted to know how the frame-rate will be. I personally want a stabler frame-rate and average graphics than amazing graphics and terrible frame-rate. I wish you guys can use all bit of power the Wii has to deliver the best splitscreen multiplayer FPS experience on the Wii.

Same here. I'd take frame rate over graphics any day of the week.

Theres a line that cannot be crossed that even you'll admit graphics should matter. Yes I would rather have 50 fps at the expense of graphics, but I also don't want to be playing a N64 game either.

Red Steel 2 is a great example of how to get the best of both worlds even though it has a cell-shaded look to it.

^ except red steel 2 doesnt have splitscreen, so that point isnt really valid here

Yes, we are working hard with balancing GFX with frame rate. Rest assured though that in split screen, frame rate will always take precedence over eye candy.

Sounds like a lovely dynamic LOD bias, and possibly dynamic noninteractive terrain, like MPH used.(some stages had certain geometry removed when 3 or 4 players were playing at the same time, in order to improve framerates.)

Good to hear, Tony.

I (and I'm sure many others) concur with you that a solid frame rate is vital and should take priority. The real eye candy belongs in single player!

The graphical reduction in the first game's multiplayer didn't bother me at all, I'd much rather that than single-player graphics at 20fps or below...

Oh. I thought all these Attn: Tony topics were unsuccessful.
I guess he really does frequent these boards enough to justify so many of them.

Almost any HVSTony topic gets a reply, even if it's something totally off-topic.

Unless I make it. Even my happy birthday topic was ignored. :(
