I dont know, there arent very many shadows in the videos\shots we have seen. That 20 minute trailer showed some at the very beginning but nothing else had real time shadows throughout the rest of the entire trailer.

EDIT: Ok, I just saw that there are shadows in the womans book store... they look great too

Default Re: A bunch of new Oblivion screenshots

The problem with the woman's bookstore is that (From what I remember) there's one shadow casting light in the whole store. None of the downstairs ones do. Also, in the dungeon (at the beginning), you'll notice that the characters only start casting shadows when they enter the cell - again, only certain lights are doing it. I'm still hoping for full light and shadow, especially indoors, but everything I see at the moment is leading me to believe that it might not happen. I don't know who I'm kidding anyhow, I probably won't be able to run the game with full shadows - my system would probably cry.

The official site has a PC screen shot of your cell here. It's the same one shown in the 20min video minus the shadows. That doesn't prove anything but here's hoping the game's max detail setting for shadows renders shadows on all objects and characters.

Yeah, I noticed how much the frame rate dropped when they all entered the cell too... it was VERY noticeable, even in a video.

Lets hope the game runs smooth and looks good in the end... I've got my fingers crossed

Default Re: A bunch of new Oblivion screenshots

A guy in the official forum was at X05 and played the game.

Overall, his impressions are positive: it feels and plays like Morrowind

Apparently the Xbox version has a nearer draw distance and the dreaded fog of war. A developer confirmed that they're trying to increase the draw distance without framerate drops as we speak.

Also it seems that the animations are another weak point, but the range of moves and actions performed by NPCs should outweight (at least in the opinion of who played the actual game) the not perfectly smooth transitions.

Ok i dont wanna make this sounds big so i'll just post it here.

it looks like Oblivion have been delayed a little. thats not confirmed though.

Quote:
Various online outlets have cited that Take 2 has slightly delayed the game from its original Nov 22nd date to December 5th to give it extra polishing. The GameStop product page has now also been updated to reflect this change, but this is still unconfirmed.

Take2? These games have always been published by Bethesda\Zenimax... at least in the US. What does Take2 have to do with anything?

They publish the game outside US. They're a decent company with a good presence in Europe.

Serious SAM, Max Payne, GTA and usually all Rockstar games are published in Europe by Take2

Ah ok, thats what I thought... Ive played some really old games published by Take2 so I wasnt sure if they were an outside-US publisher or not.

Oh well, its not a big deal really. This is the kind of game Id wait longer for to get a more polished product.

The italian Take2 site already includes informations about Oblivion. It looks like the relase date is drawing near.

It will come on a DVD and it's rated by the PEGI as 16+ (Mature content)

I dunno, I can smell "Vampires" all over again if this is released too soon.

Anyone know if the US will be getting a DVD release? I wonder about this considering Serious Sam 2's publishers appear to be similar to Oblivion's -- 2K in the US, Take2 in Europe, with 2K cancelling the DVD release of Serious Sam 2.
