Default Re: Crytek lies yet again, no HDR incorporated in patch 1.3!!

Well this is no shock. I think they pulled out most of the new content and concentrated on what will probably be the final thing they ever do for the PC version of the game. As soon as the console version is finished they are probably working on something new for EA anyway - I can't wait for Need for Speed Tropical Edition.

I'm in the middle more or less. The fact that they gave us a great game cannot be taken away from them so they definately don't suck. On the other hand they haven't fulfilled a couple of their promises so that's very negative and it has to be remembered. The thing is, why is there not a universal approach to all those companies, regardless of their big name status or not, that "lie" to their public all the time or are simply incapable of fulfilling their promises? Why does Crytek suck (since they "lied" regarding a long awaited patch) and Valve for example suck (when they've been toying with their public for an extented time too) but we forgive them?

Why people say "Crytek sucks for not releasing the HDR patch so i'll just wait or not buy the game at all" whereas almost everyone says "yeah valve sucks big time but damn, i'm buying it". I hope i don't get a fanboyish/totally subjective since one game isn't even out yet "because dude, HL2>FC". We're almost certainly talking about two of the best releases of the year here. I'm not interested in turning this into a Valve Vs Crytek flame, Valve's just an example of many studios that repeatedly bull**** their gaming public, yet not all of them get equal treatement imo. If every gamer was to have a black list, noting down EVERY studio/publisher that screwed sth big time without exceptions of the like "because they rock" i think some companies would be a bit more responsible.

I see what you mean, but I think the biggest difference is FarCry is available whereas HL2 is not. People have played and are bored of Farcry and now the bitterness has sunk in because these new features would have brought new life into the single-player game and the much sought after re-worked netcode would have made mp ..well...at least playable. Both have been skipped over, so now the realization for some of us, who bought the game under the false pre-tense that there would be hdr, sm3.0 textures, playable mp...(notice we arent even asking for mp to be fun....just frickin playable!) and other features is sinking in and we are feeling cheated.

Valve on the other hand, is also a "blunt-faced-liar", but for me at least, the big difference is, I haven't handed them my $60 bucks, so they can delay what they want for as long as they want, they get no money-I give them none. Crytek has my/our money and now decideds to skimp the features.

Valve = liars, but liars with thin wallets, their lies really hurt them more than anything else. Delaying a game ticks off a community, which unfortunately leads to more people warezing the game to "show them".

Crytek = liars, but liars with fat pockets, they signed a new deal with ea and it seems rather than support what's out with ubi, their jumping right on-board with ea and ignoring their first game. They have my $$, Valve doesn't. That's what ticks me off. Furthermore, Valve never lied about features they will put in a game, they lied about the release, but not about what the product is or will be. Big difference in my eyes.

Not yours but a lot of people already bought the game through steam and what about all those people with the coupons from the radeon cards. It's been a year and they still don't have what they paid for to begin with =P

HDR is in the patch:

From Crytek's R&D manager:
Quote:
HDR is in there. No plans to remove it. It's disabled by default. To enable it set the r_HDRRendering parameter to 1 (see config.cfg).
Check the readme file coming with the patch or my comments on the forum regarding HDR and Anti-Aliasing.

From what I understand HDR is in the patch but disabled by default. This looks to be an official statement from Crytek

Blob The Toymaker
R&D Manager,
Crytek
"HDR is in there. No plans to remove it. It's disabled by default. To enable it set the r_HDRRendering parameter to 1 (see config.cfg).

Yeah, screw Crytek!
They pimped up thier game and teased us with fancy pics of hdr lighting which would be in the 1.3 patch. Now they get bought by EA or Vivendi or something to make some ****y console game and leave us all blue balled. Lying bastards!
Half a year later and where's all the amazing mods from "revolutionary" the sandbox engine? Just more islands!
I felt like Tom Hanks in Castaway. Stuck on that damned isalnd forever!
