Thread FF7 remake demo is out now on PSN!
Is it just me or is the 5.1 mix screwed? In the intro everything sounds great but during gameplay, the voices are REALLY LOUD (but naturally coming from the central speaker). Music is a bit muffled as well. This is an old demo so there is hoping they tuned it for the release.

Thread Borderlands 3 |OT| The Three-Sequel!!
This. I've been searching online to see if there is any patch incoming that fixes the sound issues on PS4. I've been playing co-op the entire game and it's a big mess with the music, sfx and voices. It's a shame, it really pulls you out of the experience.

Thread Office jobs: Is your day mostly just sitting around trying to look busy?
Worked for years in a TV company doing 3D animations / Motion Graphics. There were crazy work days and there were "nothing is happening" days. I would always schedule so that when I would get a few days (or even weeks) with no work, I would work on my own learning new things, new tools, researching, improving my knowledge, etc. Always had something lined up to do on my "off" time. Management knew and approved as this meant I kept updated on the latest 3D tech, etc. If you have a job where they don't give you that much work, use it wisely as this doesn't happen that often.

Thread Sony and closing down online servers
The consumer rights and laws probably have to be updated to include a specific term of when and how the user should expect the services to be provided. It will be a matter of time before that happens, but the sooner we, the consumers, start complaining and requesting in our countries, the EU or others, that the companies need to provide a better service, this will continue to be the norm.

Thread Destiny 2: Shadowkeep |OT| Moon's Haunted.
Using cross save to play on PS4 and PC. Constantly get weird connection issues on PC. Just joined an Iron Banner match where it was all empty, but the match was going. Couldn't see anyone but could see the list of the team and was getting messages. Got kicked after a while. Happens a lot to get into areas where the NPCs are not there and it's all empty. Really annoying. Have to get out of the game and back in again to solve. Back on PS4 everything is fine.

Thread Why did arcade consoles stop being made
Travelled to the UK for work, saw some arcade machines in a place that had bowling alleys, ping pong tables, machines etc. They had Time Crisis 5 (I think) running on Unreal Engine. Huge machines with big screens, 2 pedals! Anyway, after 30 seconds the 2nd player machine crashed (we were playing co-op). Someone came over to reboot it and gave us back the money. We went at it again... and it crashed after 30 seconds. I've never seen an arcade crash like this in my life. It hurt so bad we stopped trying. It hurt... a lot.

Thread Europeans old enough to remember: what was it like transitioning to the Euro currency?
Always thought that we (Portugal) had a lot of prices getting bumped up because of he conversion. So I remember thinking that retailers were using the coming of the Euro as an excuse to inflate prices. After reading most of the answers it seems this happened everywhere. Our coin (Escudos, roughly translated as shields) was at the time very similar to the Yen, so 1.000 Escudos would be something like 5 Euros. Again, like in every country, old people were constantly annoyed and confused. After a year or so, there were still a lot of people holding on to Escudos, hoping that we might transition back or just because they had a lot of money in the matress or something. The banks had to issue multiple requests in the media for people to hand over the old notes and coins.

Thread Destiny 2: Forsaken |OT4| Royal Whine
Everyone here asking for a change in FOV: this is something that I think they can't just flip a switch to do it. The game runs (mostly) at 30fps and it seems to keep it very constant. They must have made a lot of adjustments and concessions to achieve this on consoles. Changing the FOV means the camera would have to render "more" at all times, it would also probably change how LODs appear, buffers for several effects are done, etc. So a lot of tuning to all the content across the entire game would have to be made to ensure that with a wider FOV the game would not constantly dip to lower FPS. In other news, I don't miss wider FOVs. I really hate how games look when you go super wide.

Thread What Screams "I'm A Tourist!" Where You Are?
Yes. Also, walking much slower than everyone else making life harder for the locals who walk at regular speeds and need to get somewhere. Also, some old trams here in Lisbon lately became part of "tours". This means that trying to normally catch a tram downtown to actually go somewhere can become impossible. There should be a universal rule where, if a group of tourists is standing in your way, you can tackle them! Like, hardcore throw into the ground! Sorry, not really, but I got so angry when we had a studio downtown and this was a daily problem. We moved.

Nice thread. Great write up! Played it back in the day. Was really frustrated and at the time never understood how it all connected. Kept playing until I gave up on it with the feeling that either it was a badly constructed plot or I was simply “not getting it”.

But when you are a teen wanting to play action games on your new Sega console, you don’t pay much attention to plot details :p

Yes, but just a few people is enough, don't need the entire internet (or resetera) :) I have seen devs on twitter and facebook going through rough times, and just a few friends popping up telling them they are there if they need them is just wonderful. I try to do it as well as much as possible whenever I know someone who's game tanked or is getting bad reviews. I also teach some classes in a videogame course and the hardest part is always to prepare everyone for the worst with their first project, but also encouraging them to continue. ANY positive thoughts is always appreciated and a boost.

Thread Why do people speak so damn loud?
It's a problem more frequent in big cities, I guess? Here in Lisbon with the noise from the city and the mix of people from all over the world, it's usual to get the occasional family tourists speaking loud, or the group of teenagers going to the beach listening to music very loudly (on a crappy speaker from a phone), etc. The weirdest for me is how some people talk on their phones, they hold it in front of them, screen facing up, and talk directly to the mic while wearing headphones. Whats up with that? They forgot how to use the phones? And since these people are the ones normally talking hours on end, is it more comfortable to hold it that way? Is it fashionable :p ?

Thread PlayStation VR |OT| Virtually A New Era
Finally managed to get a PSVR headset at home and try it out on my own for a few days and also with friends and family over the weekend. I have always been very interested in getting one or at least spend some significant time with a set and most games, but could never find the time to do this. Some friends own a set and, being myself in the industry, I know a few people working with VR here in Portugal and abroad so, I know all about it and been extremely informed about all the titles and developments. - Complicated setup, but after everything is in place i'ts just a matter of unplugging the headset and putting it somewhere, not a big problem. - Astrobot, Wipeout, Moss and some other games are definitely amazing and they can definitely "wow" me and most of my friends (as expected). - Any experience where you sit or are standing are great. All the games that try to emulate FPS walking, moving somewhere, etc. just make me nauseous. I don't think I will ever get used to playing any of those games. - Astrobot and Wipeout are definitely game changers. Wipeout shows you can have a normal game with a good resolution and graphics without too much compromise and Astrobot (in my opinion) shows how to design a game that could only exist in VR. I am sure there are more games out there that I haven't touched yet but these 2 are for now, my favorites. - Lot's of gimmicky VR games around and lot's of bad resolution games! Jeez! :p Don't want to point fingers as I considered it rude (being a gamedev myself I know how hard it is to get games out) but I bet most people here know what I am talking about. - Only slight technical problem I faced so far is the Dualshock sometimes "slides" a bit out of position when a game shows as a VR object in-game. This doesn't happen with the PSMoves. But I just need to hide it, pop it back up and it's corrected. Doesn't happen often and it's not a big problem since it doesn't matter where it is facing most of the time. - I can't play 2 days in a row if I play more than 2 hours each day. My eyes get really tired and sometimes my head hurts. I don't notice it while playing, only the next day. Don't know if my brain or eyes will ever get used to it but time will tell. If it doesn't get better than this, I will have to quit VR as I don't want to damage my eyesight. I actually had a friend getting a huge headache at the end of the day we all tested and he said it felt like one of the biggest headaches ever. I think he was just unlucky has nobody else had any problems. - Second problem is the wife. Whenever I play a videogame (singleplayer) I am always available, I pause the games sometimes, we can talk if needed, she can see me playing, etc. All of this doesn't work when my eyes and ears are covered by VR. I feel terrible playing VR with her in the same room. I have tried to only used it when I am alone in the apartment or if she goes to bed earlier than me. In conclusion, I love this. This is the future of gaming, definitely. But maybe it is too soon to use it regularly or make it my regular go-to gaming experience. I will definitely continue using it for a few more weeks before I decide on it and will definitely come back here and comment on some sort of (personal) conclusion. P.S. going back to playing 2D games on the TV is also weird for the first 5 minutes :p

Thread The Lion King - First Teaser Trailer
Ok, first things first, this is animation, not live action. If I was an animator on this movie I would definitely be upset. But marketing trumps everything, I guess. If they called it animation, people would be... confused? Whatever. Secondly, back in the 90's when this premiered here in Portugal, Disney was paying big bucks to get the best dub possible, musics and all included. And the Lion King is one (if not the best) Portuguese Disney translated movie simply because the musics are wonderfully transposed to our language. If I remember correctly Disney actually praised the work as one of the best. This meant that here, in Portugal, everyone sings the songs in Portuguese. I know some of the lyrics... in Portuguese. My younger brother knows the lyrics and can recite a lot of parts of the movie. Some PT-PT clip of Hakuna Matata found on youtube -> So, do I wanna see it? Not really. Maybe when it's out on some streaming service I will take a look just out of curiosity.

Thread Should Insomniac keep the stealth segments in Spider-Man 2?
Yes, but they can be improved. They do bring something to the table and that is a break from current gameplay. It makes the player see how a normal person moves in this world in comparison with Spiderman. It needs to be better. I love that you can do some sort of "investigation" with Mary Jane, but it is all so scripted and obvious that it isn't that much fun. Maybe make the harder and more complex Mary Jane missions optional, the ones where she actually uncovers something interesting and then we get to go as Spiderman just like you already do in the game.

Once I was walking down the street and some kid stopped me. I thought he was gonna ask me for directions or something but then I noticed he had some weird smile on his face. And then with the most awkward and nervous talk he told me he loved my game and was waiting for the sequel. It was unexpected, it was weird, it was wonderful. We talked about some of the characters and plot and how he liked this and that. We said goodbye and that was it. It never happened again since and I don’t think it will happen so soon again (if ever, Portuguese ppl don’t do this normally) but it was great. I’ve played videogames since I was six and have been making them for almost 20 years. Wouldn’t trade this for anything else.

PS4Pro. Made sure not to play on some set-ups that were (obviously) with the ugly 120hz thingy on. Super smooth! Didn't notice any hiccups or frame drops or anything. And I can spot these things fairly easily. Amazing presentation and image quality. Web swing mechanics are not as automatic as I thought it looked on videos. BUT! Still you hit R2, he fires somewhere which makes sense (left, right, up, sideways) and then you control the swing and you let go when you want. But I do think for fun and easiness of play this is the best controls they could come up with. Can't imagine another version.

Is there something like an official email to send in suggestions or something like that? I searched once and found nothing.

Hey can you add my little game to the list? :) is the sequel to Murder in the Hotel Lisbon, a PnC Adventure game released in 2014. We are aiming for an early 2018 release. Someone has been killing passengers on the express train from Lisbon to Porto, every single day since Tuesday! Someone needs to stop the killer! Once again Garcia is not up to the task (was he ever?) and reluctantly calls upon his old friend and his strange flying sidekick: the mythical Detective Case and the unmistakable Clown Bot. Together, they will board on the express train, bother everyone by asking annoying questions, pick up everyone’s belongings and call them clues, drink and eat for free at the bar (because they are working after all!) and if all goes well, find and stop the express killer. Oh, and they have to babysit Garcia’s kid because his mom is in Porto and Garcia is busy and since they are taking the train to Porto they might as well take him with them. What could go wrong, right? Time for you to board on a brand new adventure filled with humor, cases (this time many cases!), mysteries, and even more characters now than ever before! Will you be able to gather clues, solve the puzzles, succeed the trials, and find the culprit before reaching the final station?! Thanks!

Oh! I didn't know I could get such a thing as "vERAfied". Will do it. GOG doesn't want our games there, we already tried 3 times in separate occasions. I've given up trying to understand why by now. And yes, it's an old build before the English revision from our colleague who is doing the English revision :) Thanks!

Thanks! The sequel is bigger and more complex with mini-games and puzzles, and I had much more time and money this time around :) The focus groups went really well so I am already happy with the overall results so I think the fans that liked the first one will really enjoy the sequel (or so I hope).

Hey fellow devs. Finally I got a trailer out and a release date for my tiny little indie videogame... maybe not so tiny anymore. We launch on the Lot's of work to do and still bugs to iron out but it's coming along nicely. Putting a trailer together is always one of my favorite parts of promoting my games. This time I got the budget to hire a voice actor from Fiverr and to license the cool music I used. Also changed some of the shots to better match the timing and music. The Clown Bot flying shot was the one that gave me more work as animating something like this moving in pixel-art is a bit hit and miss. Turned out ok I think :)

I figure there is a percentage of people that do that, but how much? I do see it on my older game on Steam whenever we go on Steam Sales is when the wishlist gets used by players. Oh well.

Hey fellow devs, quick question here about Steam and social awareness of your brand / game. I am trying to understand if "wishlist aditions" of your game by a player is a good indication of a purchase when it launches. I mean, how much of a percentage do you expect from your audience to actually buy it? 50%, 25%? And, of course, if anyone has actual numbers, it would be great :)

Hey guys. My first post here in the Indie Game Development Thread. I am really happy to start sharing the work (here in resetera) we have been doing for the last 2 years (in between client work and other things) of the sequel to . It's called and the Steam page is up here -> It's the typical sequel. I kept what worked and added new stuff as needed. Listening to the fans helped in shaping the new game as well. Here are some screenshots and don't bother watching the teaser, it's the most stupid thing I could think of doing (even though I love it).

Thread Steam Summer Sale 2018 |OT| 6/21 - 7/5. Yes, it's still just 33% off.
We put up our game at 25% on the Steam Summer sales.[/QUOTE] If you buy it, you might want to hold on a bit before playing as we will roll out update 1.06 at the end of Steam Summer Sales. We moved to Game Maker Studio 2.0 and with it added more support to current chipsets and other silly computer things. We also adding support for controllers. As a curiosity note, and considering my game is already 4 years old, we are getting more sales from China than anywhere else. Weird but cool. On a side note, the Steam browser game is really weird. Are you guys really playing it to get (even) more games?
