While AbSoLuT_b is trying hard to keep the site running by posting tons of news each day, I have been keeping myself busy with the now famous iCEnhancer mod which gives Grand Theft Auto IV a photo realistic look. Not eveyrthing is perfect though, but then again, I'm using the beta version of the mod so it makes sense. Kudos to ICE La Glace for his work as I can even run the game at 30 to 55 fps depending on the situation. Here is a first video captured in 1080p and 30 fps and a bunch of homemade screenshots so you can see what it's all about. If you want to try it out yourself, here is the address where to download it. Update: Another short video added. Update 2: Added a gallery using the same mod but with replaced vehicles, screens by Miguel and Blades.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (10 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (10 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (10 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (11 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (17 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (17 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (17 Hours ago)
