Default Re: What Do you think? Tim Sweeney as good/better than carmack?

"Wrong, Doom3 is a DX7 engine (more or less) while as Unreal3 is a true DX9 engine"

Fundamentally on how the game handles lighting and shadowing, its essentially the same as todays Doom 3 engine (with inprovements of course)

However, every game coming out today is basically a DX7/8 engine with some neato DX9 features on the top. It would be illogical to release a true DX9 engine today

Oh I would agree with you on the lighting even though they are using a different method. However there are other things they are adding that are not in doom3. But yea I see where your going.....

John Romero is a tool. Daikatana?? Please....he will never live that debacle down. Since getting together with Killcreek he's gone from BAD (Daikraptuna) to noticeably worse (games for mobile phones - his latest effort was a REALLY crappy port of Red Faction 2 - looks worse than DOOM1). Seriously Romero was and always will be overrated. He may have been a kickass gamer. As a developer he makes a kickass gamer :P
