Default Re: Everquest 2. I think I may have a partial solution to stuttering.

In fact I think Quake 3 has been the industries most scalable graphics engine ever. And if this engine is so scalable and meant for next years tech, why the hell is it using 4 year old technology? uhh yeah that's real scalable. Truth is any company can release a dog slow 3d graphics engine and call it scaleable. Everything's scaleable to a degree. It's a bs argument. Eq's engine is no more scaleable then Cryengine, doom 3, starbreeze etc. It's just a next gen engine (with yesterday's technology, ironinically) written in C++ modules. Duh.


You can argue cryengine, Doom 3 ect are all next generation games written in yesterdays technology because most of them (Like EQ 2)) have used a basis of Geforce 3 tech for their basic lowest common denominator I think EQ 2 might be less scalable towards the low end than those engines though. As EQ 2 doesnt support any card without a hardware support for pixel/vertex shaders while Doom 3/Far Cry do.
