X06: Splinter Cell Double Agent presentation

X06: Splinter Cell Double Agent presentation

It's Splinter Cell Double Agent's turn to get his own private presentation thanks to our friend SnakeX. It's still 100% in french, but you already saw the same level in Leipzig so it shouldn't be an issue.

To kill or not to kill? :)

I hope Hisham helps you out later if you don't put a bullet in his brain.

Looks absolutely fantastic as expected except for...

... the horrid v-sync tearing! Geez, can't the Xbox 360 do a 30 fps game with intricate next-gen graphics without them wobbling about when you move? You either get hi-def last gen graphics that don't tear (e.g. The Godfather) or hi-def next-gen ones that do (e.g. Saint's Row). It's not so bad if you're using a standard definition TV but it looks awful on an LCD HDTV.

Seeing that has made me decide to cancel the Xbox 360 version and order the game for the PC instead, where I've at least got the option to force v-sync. Good job I upgraded my PC recently to an Athlon64 X2 4200+, 2GB of memory and a 512MB GeForce 7900 GT graphics card then!

WHY DO THEY ONLY SHOW THE SAME GOD DAMN DESERT-LEVEL? ... god...

^^^^ I agree... this really seems like the suckiest SCDA level
Commented on 2006-09-29 19:30:35
Mostly to show variety, instead of showing you sam in a shadow like the past games...

I would imagine later levels contain big spoilers aswell.

Tearing is bad at that level, not others. I hope for some optimisation from Ubi before release.

2gb ram DDR II (533mhz)
500gb HDD SATAI
Graphic card nvidia geeforce 7950 GT 512mb HDTV 2xDVI
procerssor intel C2de6400 2.13 1066 2m 775 core 2 duo em64t

The pc i ordered coming this holiday to me.

ANd i will get the 360 version,but enough about bragging with hardware like that Dazza wanted,and still he failed to have anyone impressed.

I don't have tearing problem in Oblivion,Graw,Table Tennis and Test drive,but nvm,you're a sonyfanboy so you're actually that dumb that you think you must have tearing if you play aything above "godfather" standard.

Wow you're really dumb,have you seen Gears of war for ex?
Have you seen people playing it?
Talking about it?
Have they mention "Tearing"?
Just because Saints row lacks V-sync doesn't mean other games do or need.
Commented on 2006-09-29 23:23:00
Actually I wasn't bragging at all, just stating that I had a PC that is easily capable of running the game at the same quality as the 360 so it's nice that I have a choice of which version to go for. Plus the PC version is £15 cheaper anyway and will undoubtedly have free multiplayer maps just like Chaos Theory. It makes the decision to buy the PC version that much easier really. Remember I'm not dissing the game at all, I'm sure it'll be as brilliant as all the other games; I'm just expressing my disappointment at the quality of the Xbox 360 version.

@WarofPain - Saint's Row looks fantastic on my HDTV too apart from the tearing but then the developers are patching the game and adding a v-sync option for the cutscenes and actual game with a warning that it may impair performance so people can choose whether they want a faster framerate plus tearing or a slower framerate with no tearing. It's a shame that all Xbox 360 games don't have this option.

Tearing didn't particularly bother me on the Xbox or PS2 when I used a standard definition TV but it's so noticeable on HDTVs and, thus, far more annoying. It actually gives me headaches if it's really bad and that's why it bothers me so much.

Guess what? You're a fag.
Guess what? Only a fucking moron would care about v-sync. The fact that the screen is ripping is a good thing. You obviously know nothing about console or computer hardware/graphics and gaming, if you think that a lack thereof vertical syncronization is a bad thing.

Edit: Dazza you suffer from mental retardation. Your graphics card alone is more expensive than a 360. You are obviously losing out if you think that buying a new graphics card every year is the way to go, and BTW YOU FORGOT ABOUT DX10!!!

HAHAHAHA RETARD FORGOT ABOUT DX10! RETARD JUST BOUGHT A NEW GPU WHICH IS DX9 ONLY!! LOL. You pwnt yourself.

Okay, I don't particularly like Shawnzee either, but that kind of language will get you banned.. Unless you already are that is.

^^I solely posted the first time to tell him that, and it turned into a pretty big rant. Lol.
Commented on 2006-09-30 02:23:34
Just to clarify with people, you all do know that 60 fps looks better than 30 fps correct? Okay, now if the screen tore at 60fps, would you put a 30fps frame lock on so that the screen wont tear? NO, THATS FUCKING STUPID. It never interferes with gameplay in the first place.

Framerate is key in video games, especially for a realistic feel. I can handle a little tearing.

Ummm.....come again!? I know what`s V-sync or screen tearing but why is it used up on games and end up looking bad!?






Cmon someone explain it to me.......... ;)
Commented on 2006-09-30 07:07:34
umm your opinions are very wrong buddy. the saints row demo ran 60 frames a second in some areas, and with the horrible tearing it made it look worse than any NORMAL game that runs at 30 with v sync on. (of course they finally listened to me and put a 30 framerate limiter on it, but they werent good enough to turn on v sync however.) seriously man youre an idiot. youre making yourself look like a fool to everyone here. no one cares about your opinion because not everyone shares it.

a normal game like halo runs a lot better than another game with no v sync on. so shut up already. tearing is a big issue for people with a set of functioning eyes. thanks to fools like yourself, we will continue to see UBI churning out game after game with tearing.
