DOnt miss STALKER trailer at http://www.nvidia.com/nzone/

i think this is BY FAR the most impressive graphics ever made
in a game , it will use PS2.0 and maybe every
possible feature in DIrect X9 cards.. 350k to 3millions Polys
per level... THis is a world record for a game. :)

Softshadows ,pretty cool fire effects , BUmpmapping..
HUge Landscapes that and nature enviroments..
so realistic that in thethe intro you will believe
that is the real thing and not a game , you can drive vehicles
and shoot helicopters. very realistic looking trees and grass..
untra high detail textures..

for screenshots this site..

Russian programmers now can claim to have the best engine
in the gaming industry... :)

It did look pretty good (for that small size video), but I am more excited about Half Life 2. That trailer didn't show much action, but it did show off the open area's and the tree's and stuff looked quite detailed. The screenshots look much better than the video did (surprise).

On a side note, I do like this nZone. This is good PR :)

Try this link for a larger vid:

I think the engine looks cool, but I like parts of HL2 better, and also some elements of Doom3 (specifically the shadows).

Should be a cool game, and a good engine, I hope it gets licensed out :)

Anyone interested in Crytek's engine? gonna be used in Far Cry.. looks pretty sweet ina Bryce unreal rendered reality kinda way. Physics look good, MASSIVE arenas seem possible. and the editor is so simple I think even I could use it :eek:

That trailer showed it in a much better light. Looks to be a very good engine, I could imagine some mods using that very effectively.

Nice to see a game coming out using the Crytek engine too. That technology demo was pretty good.

Yeah, should be great for multiplayer games :) very nice foliage etc!

Couldn't find the link where I d/l the movie from originally, that 30mb far cry .exe is ok but you don't see the detail..

here's the one I got, a little hefty at 160mb but v. nice quality ;)

i think those landscapes will suit better for a massive scale game
in the medieval times ,every warrior riding horses and with Swords.. :)
something like the intro of LOrd of the RIngs.. pretty cool.

if you mix the character models/animations of Doom3 and Interiors
with the exteriors of Stalker engine ,you get there a perfect engine. :)

the sky in the game looks very realistic... too.

I had a play of an early demo of this game around December last year at the nvidia booth of a game development conference. The graphics were very pretty. It was as beautiful as a full game level of the quality of the 'nature' benchmark in 3dmark 2001. The demo I played had no enemies that I saw, and only 1 weapon. It paused or slowed every now and then, perhaps to load a bit. The system was a Athlon XP2800+ with NForce2 and GeforceFX 5800 ultra, not sure how much RAM.

One thing I don't like about STALKER is the animations for the soldiers..

Look like they've filled their undies :o

But everything else is v. nice :) and yeah, lots of gret games coming out soon which I'm looking forward to: HL2, DeusEx2, Doom3, STALKER, Far Cry, etc (and pretty much in that order ;))

I like how far game engines have advanced.. I guess the next step is to combine HL2's "openess" and interactivity with Doom3's advanced shadowing :) I like the Havok physics engine too, some more tweaking and that will be scarily accurate.. (notice in one of the HL2 vids a soldier falls from a crane potiion or some high point and when he hits the pavement he "bounces" lol ..that's not right)
