  • XboxOne is struggling in Europe.

    http://www.vg247.com/2015/06/30/interview-ps4s-jim-ryan-on-sonys-e3-and-winning-in-europe/

    PS4 dominates Europe market around 70% to 90%. Not sure how accurate the report is. But, man. This is extremely bad.

    This is close to impossible for Phil to revert this mess after MadTrick. And of course Balmer. I am pretty sure he had a lot of influences on TVBox.

    The damage is even worse with lack of special exclusives like KOTOR and Mass Effect. While PS4 getting its own exclusives.

    The doom and gloom is yikes.

  • GB game patches.

    @magicalclick: That's not what I said.

    There are 1001 things that can go wrong with textures. There are also tens of thousands of textures at multiple resolutions. A glitch in one could mean repacking an entire resource file to get the load order and compression right. Combine that with code bugs and other issues mentioned in this thread, and you end up getting large very quickly.


    I hope one day someone can fix this problem. Or at least let me play with broken textures while it is downloading the new version. Because they are not critical to me.

    Also I get the feeling they are prebaking textures at certain scenes to remove the dynamic lighting. Just my conspiracy theory.

    Ummm...no.

    I was replying in the context of Bas' comment about games that have had textures updated a few years down the road. Sometimes it's done by the studio, and sometimes it's done by fans of the game.

    That isn't to say that companies don't knowingly send broken games to manufacturing, and then spend the lag time between manufacturing and release creating a day-one patch.



    I see, so the. 3GB day one patch is still just a lot of texture rework from the developer. Honestly I still don't see why so much texture can be broken in the first place. Maybe they accidentally generated bunch of textures in black and white????

    Indeed. There are a number of games that have had fan-made texture updates.


    You mean as part of Day One 3GB patch? Well.... They sure are fast.

    No. I'm saying that the focus testing you're talking about didn't happen "recently". It happened in the mid-90's, when Clippy was still being developed. http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/06/clippy-the-microsoft-office-assistant-is-the-patriarchys-fault/396653/



    Looking at my own source. You are right lolz.

  • Lumia 920 update

    @elmer:

    True. My Battery Drain warning pops up after few minutes of IE. It drains battery fast.

  • Lumia 920 update

    Block IE background process for starter. Other than that, IDK. I haven't noticed it but I don't know how my phones battery life changes. I don't have the historical data to analyze.

    @magicalclick:  Perhaps they are looking into what parts of Clippy should, and should not, be replicated in Cortana or other personal assistant features.



    Possible and I doubt it. And IMO is still a waste of time to analyze it.

    Getting feedback from focus groups on a product you're developing is not a waste of time.



    Are you saying they ARE developing Clippy?
