No no no... that GDC movie, while spiffy-looking, is not the one they mentioned in the article. The NV30 launch video showed a marine walking through a torch-lit cavern. The clip from the Unreal engine in the NV30 launch vid showed much better graphics than the GDC vid. I'll see if I can find a link to the NV30 launch video.

Cool, sorry about that then. Hope you find it:).

I guess this means we can expect Unreal Warfare sometime in 2006? Or maybe 2005 considering that interview might have been done at the end of 2003...

Going to be very nice, indeed. Maybe see realistic damage on objects, instead of decals. Real bullet holes, dents and stuff. Ouch...that's going to kill the frame rates.

As for the movie, wasn't it the one where the marines (from the UW pics) storm a bridge? In that scene, they come out of some hall way, onto a platform and start firing at the enemy across a short bridge. Then they shoot a swaying metal object located above the bridge, which falls down and destroys the bridge. I think it was that video.

red faction style geometry destruction did little to frame rates, ambey they could do something lieke that? but no so crappy and extreme.

The GDC movie is nothing compared to the demo shown in the NV30 launch, and I'm sure what we saw in that movie is nothing compared to what we will see when the necris unreal title comes out.

Remember that tim stated they're already where they want to be as far as number of polys for the world. The major things that will change will be the advanced lighting and surfaces together with higher detailed characters. The GDC movie doesn't really highlight these features but the nv30 one does. Not to mention the nv30 scene while only showing a small room, is 100 times more detailed than the gdc scenes.

I'm trying to find it but I'm really not to sure on where to even start. A google search isn't turning up anything. To make it worse we had the forum crash :\

For those who haven't seen it the scene is basically this. An extreemly high detailed model walking in a small rock walled room with a torch. You can see the light change as he walks around the room and even change on the character as he moves his arm. Also note that this was only a very very small section of the video which highlighted several games using geforce FX and dx9 technology.

a movie that would be cool to find is the video of Bill Gates running around in a doom level and blowing an Imp's head off with a shotgun. Now THAT would be a rare find!

Great I had been looking for that clip!!!
Edit:Hmmmm, that's not the castle and knight clip I was looking for but another totally different clip I had never seen before...kewl!


Secondly, ACK!!! Two years!!!! ACK!!!!

The castle and knight clip was from an hour and a half comdex video stream Nvidia had it up on their site as a webstream of the FX launch. The clip of epic's was extracted from it.

It used to be hosted on BarrysWorld but has since been removed as the site no longer exists.
