    I wish there was a bit more variety with the people on The Patch. I like everybody but it always seems to be Gus, Ryan and usually Burnie or Ashley. Mix it up a bit anf get people like Ray, Michael, Jack or Gavin back on

    Haha! I was really hoping Gus would say during the ad read, "Wanna remind everyone that this episode of the patch is brought to you by Candy Crush"

    if they've rendered Tomb raider at it's best for the PC, they won't be doing that, they'll be porting the engine to Xbox one

    So, when will they talk about Destiny? It's Bungie!

      Probably when the beta comes out, when there's actually something to talk about. Until then, it's just Bungie teasing us with awesome announcements and badass trailers.

    TressFX in Tomb Raider is an AMD produced software, I guess you could call it software, so that's why it is added to the AMD supported next gen consoles for the Definitive Edition.

    Tress effects, does this sound like a shampoo to anyone else... And yes Ryan I did watch the Mems video. I laughed.

    Good episode, but they seemed to oversimplify the process for down resing or up resing a game, so here is the full process for those who are wondering what actually goes on to do either of those things:

    First off, most artists who have worked in this industry have gotten used to an industry hardware standard for the current consoles. This means models can't exceed a certain number of polygons and textures can't exceed a certain resolution. Now that we're onto new hardware, these artists have to adjust everything they've learned from the previous console to the new standards of the new console. Think about it this way, imagine I told you to build a structure using only 10 bricks. Whatever structure you create will be optimized for those 10 bricks. However, if I then gave you an additional 10 bricks, you'd be hard pressed to find room in your structure for all of them. This is why down resing is easier than up resing because you are removing polygons or reducing textures rather than adding polygons and texture details. This is also why down resing takes less time usually than up resing.

    Second, the game has to be re-optimized. New hardware requires new optimization. Again, once you replace all the textures and models, you essentially have completely new game assets. These assets need to be re-optimized in the render code. This is why having additional space or memory doesn't solve every problem, you still have to optimize the data within those new memory spaces. So even if you have the up res'd art assets from a PC build or something, you still have to re-optimize your engine code. This process usually takes just as long for down resing as up resing, but it'll hold your engineers up for a while.

    Finally, there is the production pipeline. More often than not, you want to up res or down res after a game has been finished (or as close to the release build as possible). That way, you can apply your changes to a finished asset. However, that's not always the case and sometimes you have to work alongside the other builds of the game. That means that you are constantly changing your assets to match whatever changes are made for the other builds and then re-applying any additional changes you've made. This system tends to have data flow problems, which slows down the pipeline.

    In short, there is no magic button you push and it's not a simple task for either the artists or engineers. While it doesn't take as long as full game production, it still takes a lot of time and resources to up res or down res a game.

      I think theyre intentionally going back to these three because this is the general consensus. A super nerd, a pretty girl and the third guy, great combo

    • Matt317 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold the guy

      They're great hosts, but I'd still like to hear what the other RT staff have to say as well. It shouldn't just be the same three people every week.

    If you plug in a XBO controller into your computer via a Mini USB cord, you can use it for your games without much hassle.

      It was a big deal because MLG players bitch about how "the wireless 360 controllers have a higher latency than the wired controllers" so they made the feature of 'once you plug it in, it transmits all data through the wire instead' to stop people complaining about having to buy a specific kind of controller.
