You might remember that a few days ago we told you guys that Microsoft had let us capture direct feed videos of Forza Motorsport 7 at E3, but that they had made a mistake by leaving the consoles in HDR mode, leading to almost unusable captures. Now that Miguel is back we finally got the original video captures and spend a lot of hours experimenting, and then even more hours encoding some pretty bad ass HDR videos for you guys. So if you have a 4K HDR TV, this will be a feast for your eyes for sure! For the others though, I'm sorry to say that these videos are simply not going to work as they should on any hardware. So if you have the right screen, you'll find more infos inside!
These videos should be considered highly experimental, and should not be considered like an exact representation of the colors and lighting of the final game. The first video (Dubai) especially might have some white levels quite a bit too bright, but it's difficult to say without having the game to compare with the videos. The second (rain) video is (from our opinion at least) quite an amazing sight to see though :)
These videos were tested with success on these devices:
- Xbox One S
- LG 2016 Oled TV
- LG 2015 Oled TV
- Samsung 2016 Led TV
- Nvidia Shield TV
The video was not recognized on our PS4 Pro, unless we missed something somewhere.
The easiest way to play these videos is to simply copy them to a USB thumbdrive, and play them using the media player of your TV/device.
If you have a 4K HDR TV (and only in that case!), please let us know if these videos worked, on an which devices.
Considering the time it takes to encode such videos (6 hours for 5 minutes of footage on our 12 cores encoding PC), we really need to get your feedback on this experiment so we can decide whether we keep doing more HDR videos in the future or not.
The best conquest modes are assault/double assault. They need to bring them back... but not for Bad Company. (1 Hour ago)
But they're also introducing new field upgrades too which just seem to further break predictable encounters. Lots of give and take. (1 Hour ago)
@MikeManiac61: Battlefield 1 conquest sucks. They've improved it (or are?) by introducing a neutral bleed state (tied flags = no ticket gain). That's a partial fix. (1 Hour ago)
@MikeManiac61: Nah conquest is okay in Bad Company 2. I just don't like the movement, combat, or vehicle handling. It's all piss poor compared to BF3/4. (1 Hour ago)
Unlike in past BF games if were down by that many, by some miracle we could eventually make a comeback. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: After playing BF1 for awhile i feel the same. Still not use to the ticket bleed in this game. If you're down by 300 tickets in BF1, you've already lost. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: PC wise i can understand BC2 wasn't popular there. Controls, especially on a mouse felt super sluggish and CQ was too small with massive chokepoints. I'd prob place BC1 ahead of BC2. (2 Hours ago)
