You lucky so and so, i've been a "guest" to these forums for a while....long enough to know you were fortunate enough to go to E3 last year and demo the now vaporware that is parallax mapping in FarCry (amd64 version also seems to be vaporware) but now knowing you get to go again this year....ooooooh the envy...the hatred...take lots of pics and share with us nobodies ;) Just kidding jakup, I don't hate ya, but man....E3 back to back years....have an extra ticket? :angel:

Do me and the rest of us farcry fans a favor, if u see an ubi booth, can u ask them whats up with parallax mapping and the amd64 version of farcry? Tell them..." you know, the same stuff u had on display LAST year that you've yet to give us" :D

No tickets to E3, You get a single pass (badge) for you alone, not even children are allowed in. Only way to get in is being in the press or part of the industry. Glad Im part of the industry! :)

Jakup, make me a shirt and I will throw a party at my hotel! :D

Crytek is gonna be there this year to show off their xbox game... If i can get a hold of any of them i will ask about the disc. mapping patch as well as x64 :D

Maybe they saved the offset mapping for the upcoming FarCry expansion ? :p
which reminds me .. ask Crytek about the info on FC add-on , true or fake ?

I feel your pain...I feel your pain :thumbdwn:

Thanks jakup! Hopefully ubi will give you some truth about it all. Even if they say, "well...we gave up on it" i'll be happy, just to know what's going on. ;)

You register at the website, You must then send them two forms of proof that show you are a member of the Industry or Media. No one from the general public is allowed.

A place that is related to Videogames. But its too late anyway, Registration for the Exhibit Floor is closed.

Badges get sent out on wensday, Woot! :D

Gotta love how they wont even allow infants in the show, lol!

A place related to video games? So you can be some dope that works 4 hours a day behind the counter @ gamestop and can get in, but I can't? Pfffft...u made it sound all sophisticated, like u needed to be a developer or publisher or something lol.

:: note to self, get part time job at gamestop prior to E3 next year to get a pass and then quit :::

Basically...You get into the show floor for free, but nothing else. Thats all I cared about, I could have gotten the other packages aswell for being a developer but I couldn't afford the loss of time at work, Im not getting paid for going to E3.

BTW, Working at Gamespot or EB part-time probably wont get you in since the company needs to give E3Expo the "ok" when E3Expo calls them up looking for verification that you work there. I know the only reason I got to go when I worked at EB was because I was management, part-timers weren't allowed to go. Could have changed now though...

Do me and the rest of us farcry fans a favor, if u see an ubi booth, can u ask them whats up with parallax mapping and the amd64 version of farcry?

Parallax mapping will be in the expansion pack. I don't think that they will add that effect to the original game with a patch. Therefore it's now too late.

How did you get your GF to go, She in the industry aswell? There are no guests allowed, every person attending must be part of the industry one way or another, no bring a guest thing...

My friend wanted to go but he couldn't since he doesn't work in the industry (Teacher).

All I sent them was a paystub, my card, and a copy of our flyer. They never called, or asked any other questions. I got my pass.

I guess if you are good enough with photoshop.. you could get anyone in..lol

As far as working in the industry, you don't even have to be involved with selling/producing games. Even if you work in the computer hardware industry (me ;)) you can still get a pass.

They haven't mailed out passes yet and you need to get the badge holder still, no one is allowed enterance without the holder which needs to be picked up on site with a photo ID.
