I see a progress in graphics, but I don't see a progress on the rest  ;D

Just joking, interesting thing with the Alpha. And the rest regarding that will come in December.
I'm interested on the recommended Specs (Hopefully not too high) and who will participate.
Maybe I can playtest too?  ::)

So is this the point where we will see the start of a promoting-campaign or something. (The purpose of marketing managers?) Or at least a more open look on what's going on? The past year you guys haven't been exactly open to your community, neither did you guys do much to keep it around.

Would love to get some info about how you guys are going to run things in the months running up to the Alpha.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!

I'm sure they'll dish that out when they're ready to, Gokiller. For now, its best to celebrate their hard work and the incoming Alpha.

Well after like 3 years (?). One might think that they should be ready for that, especially as the Alpha is just around the corner.
However, I don't know a lot about the entire campaigning progress. Hence why I'm asking to get some more information regarding that.

Just like TaleWorlds with Bannerlord. Smh.
Taleworlds hasn't announced anything like an Alpha though. Unless I'm mistaken.

Being a bit critical here, but nonetheless. It's good to hear the Alpha is coming! :P

Dunno, must have been a mistake.
And obviously there is no coincidence here.. Roight?

We do not have any computer requirements yet. Although I can say that to play it on Ultra settings you will have to get a fairly good machine. We can not do too much about it, Unity is limiting us somewhat. But that does not mean that you can not play the game on a bad machine! You just have to tune your settings to something that works with it.

Well it will play an animation, and the head will move to the direction your camera is currently looking at.

Well DX11 can use new technologies that 7 does not have. If you however, do not care about graphics, you are right, graphically there is no difference between high quality 7 and low quality 11.
But Peformance wise there is. DX11 runs much smoother and faster than DX7.

Warband is quite a few years old, and already when it came out it's graphics and system requirements were a joke compared to most games released around the same time. And if you still play Warband on the lowest setting and can barely squeeze out 60 FPS, then how on earth do you still manage to do PC gaming these days. That means you should really get an upgrade or otherwise you'll be unable to play even the simplest games on low nowadays.

That's the thing with PC gaming, the technology advances constantly and so does the hardware and system requirements for games.

Getting something decent that can probably run BCoF on low-med isn't that expensive. A new, $300 laptop should do the trick, which is really cheap for a "gaming" computer/laptop. Or if you have desktop PC, get something like a GTX 950, it's around $150 and if your CPU is not too shabby, you should be good to go. You really don't state of the art $1000 technology, but a little upgrade is gonna be necessary by now.

That said, I can't look into your purse and it's easy talking for me about upgrading your PC when you just ordered a brand new GTX 970....

Regardless, good news and Godspeed with future development.

Not saying anything against BCoF, I wish them best of luck. But it is not fair to community to keep silent for so long.
If you like it? fine, but that new pic has nothing special or something I would say "Wow, all these years, they have really put their effors in it"  + 120 is little too much and unfair for people who already donated a long time ago.

How many people have actually donated 150 Euro or more? Maybe 10-15? While this is cool and all, how much testing can you really do with such a small group? While you can do stuff like bug testing and see if items work properly, you can't really test performance. Might be smart to lower the donation limit for Alpha access. Not only will this improve the Alpha test because the more people, the more problems you can find, it will also lead to more donations as the limit is lower, which makes people donate just that little bit easier

If you have any serious questions regarding that fact, feel free to PM me. I can understand that it might be a bit of a surprise for our older members, so I'll happily explain how and why :)

That should be an interesting conversation.

We might lower it or make it free Alpha at a later stage. For now we will see how it goes. We do not need a lot of people, infact we do not want a lot of people for Alpha.

When they said they would release an alpha in December, they didn't mean it was meant for all donors to test. The alpha is for the developers, chosen individuals, and those that donated the $150 to test.

DayZ is not in "alpha". Nowadays, Alpha or Early-release is short for "We will release this game months early with loads of bugs, say its the full game, then frequently update it saying its the Alpha". When in reality, the alpha of a game is the very early build. Many textures, sounds, and structure with either be garbage or not exist.

Also, FSE isn't broke.

The Alpha  is 150 Euros because we do not want a whole lot of people in the Alpha. Unlike most games nowadays, our Alpha and beta is not meant as a way to market and sell the game. We use it to actually test the game.

Just be honest about not wanting discussion of a direct competitor, it's not going to make you look worse than banning threads for their game (which is already reinforcing a lot of people's low opinions of FSE on TaleWorlds). People will understand, they might not all still agree, but at least you'll be being honest about it and not look a bit hypocritical and silly when you have threads that are somewhat advertiser (as is natural when it comes to talking about games, there isn't necessarily anything actually wrong with these threads) like the Space Engineers, Verdun, scottgames.com (which I think actually is just an ad?), Fallout 4 (game isn't even out yet), Hearthstone or Ark (just says "Buy it") threads.

Glad to hear that FSE is still working on BCF too, I had assumed it was dead by now. I hope they are still able to finish it!

If you mean my thread about Fnaf, that's not advertisment but a discussion thread

Guys, the main problem here is that WaR and BCoF are like Call of Duty and Battlefield in this respect.

Both have similar gameplay styles, aesthetics, communities, playerbases, so on... and therefor, the games take player-base away from eachother. I can honestly see a LOT of people either playing solely BCoF or WaR, not both. And considering that this is the BCoF forum, it kinda would shoot'em in the foot to allow their kickstarter to be advertised here.

That being said, is it honorable? Is it morally right? I dunno, that's a different answer from person to person. But the bottom line is if something might threaten your product... why give it the air-time? And it's not like FSE's shitting on Campfire Games' work here, they just wanna keep things focused.

Y'all are... blowing this outta proportion.

Well a few things:

If they just came out and said something like "We feel it is a bit awkward to talk about a direct competitor here so please don't." it would be understandable and isn't going to look as silly as using a different reason entirely. Especially since most discussion about other games is kind of an advertisement for them anyway. It really does just make you look less than great when you do something like this, especially to people elsewhere (don't forget the Streisand Effect!). Also then you end up with people making a stink about it :p

I can't actually think of any developer that I know of who bans discussion of similar games from the OT section of the forum, though I do understand FSE not wanting it here. Also Battlefield and CoD are both wildly successful despite competition, but they are also considerably more different than two civil war FPS games are.

Post by: Duuring on October 16, 2015, 10:08:13 pm
I'd really appreciate if you guys would let the subject rest. I understand that removing posts might seem radical, but we literally had members who registered yesterday posting links to the Kickstarter, which is a direct breach of the Advertisement Rule and led us do that decision. We allowed WoR-threads on the Off-topic section before, so this was a recent decision.

FSE, eventually, makes games to earn money, just like Campfire Games does. They respect each other and compete by making their games as best as they can, but they are competitors nevertheless.

I'll remove posts that continue this decision. I hope you understand that.

Well... FSE isn't in a position to sabotage another game's player base by doing a contained announcement on its own board. It has been long overdue as is.

The mounting pressure had been steadily building due to community anger over a lack of updates. Commercial competition may have certainly compounded that pressure but the announcement seems more of an effort at staying relevant amid community speculation that the project was dead. Olafson was already posting a large amount of pics in the donators board over a week ago but whichever way you look at it; Competition is a good thing and if it adds that bit of extra pressure for devs to provide a better product and service then all the better for the customer. I am hoping that both games will succeed in their respective enterprise.

What will set one of these apart and make it worth playing 20+ hours is going to be the melee combat and gameplay which go hand in hand. I don't really care if one of them looks better as I play NW with lowest graphics anyways, I prefer to play games like CSGO and Warband on lowest graphics as game play>aesthetics.

Whichever game has the gameplay to ensure 1000+ hours of game play deserves the community's attention. Also it cant be  simply a cash grab like Kingdoms Rise.

I'm pretty sure that either war of rights or BCoF will be a cash grab, maybe even both. Wouldn't be surprised if the melee is really dumbed-down to appeal to the "casual" crowd. Same reason spinning was nerfed in NW, don't want game mechanics that are too complicated so that a new player gets dumpstered by a veteran 95% of each duel.

Duuring made a comment alluding to the fact that 16v16 will be the largest battle size awhile back. Maybe I misunderstood him. That's good to here though

Say, you donate €5, then the other day, you decide to donate €20 more. Does it now say that you have donated €25, and do you get the other rewards? (for example access to beta, etc.)

We will post a Developer Blog about Bullet Physics etc. later, but everything is calculate realistically. To balance them, we will provide longer reload times and less ammo for pistols. + Pistols are naturally less accurate and have a lower Muzzle velocity than a Rifle.

Having decent melee will make or break the game for most long time community members. Immersion is great and all, but in MP using a really slow gun will only keep it the "immersion" fun for a relatively short period of time. Aka chivalry shit.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: Josy_Wales on October 20, 2015, 08:30:47 pm
What we need to remeber is that chivalry had melee as the absolute main feature, and is covering a period where around 90 precent of deaths was cause by hand to hand combat, while in this period only 2 procent was caused by hand to hand fighting. I know its a game so it doesnt need to be 100% accurate, but unlike NW, shooting is going to make a big difference on the battlefiled. Its a civil war game we want right? With melee as one of the features, not more importent then the others, but as part of the game.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: joer5835 on October 20, 2015, 08:35:03 pm
A lot of people don't seem to realize that the muskets from the ACW where rifled and so a lot more accurate than the muskets in the NW. Charging over an open field with a line of soldiers aiming at you and your fellow soldiers is survivable in NW, but if you did that during the ACW, you were dead meat for sure.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: Olafson on October 20, 2015, 08:46:23 pm
All that being said, Melee will be very similar to what NW/Warband has + some added functionality.
So no need to worry about that.

It is already implemented, only thing it is lacking right now is some proper hit detection, but that is being worked on... It will be all ready and done for Alpha.

About Rifles and Muskets, as I said, we will be posting a blog about that soon.

Well animations are work in progress. Although they won't change too much. Basicially up and downstab need to be fixed, because at the moment they do not go very far, which makes it hard to hit people that are further away. 1st picture obviously shows a upswing that you would normally only do when the bayonet is not attached.

Functionality for that is there. Basicially you can attach and remove the bayonet. Not having it attached will give you 4 swings, the upper swing of that is shown on the first image. When the bayonet is attached, you only have up and down stab.
Right now, the bayonet mesh is not being removed when the bayonet is not attached, that is why you can see it on the first image :P

Turn it around, ram the butt into your enemies or better, thrust the barrel forward, that can give a punch as well. I've lost half my tooth last april when an Imperial grenadier hit me in the face when he tried to push me over with his musket. Sure, I can understand the 4 way system for gameplay reasons, but in reality there are a lot more practical ways than the overhead sling if you wanna melee someone with no bayo.

All that being said, Melee will be very similar to what NW/Warband has + some added functionality.
So no need to worry about that.

It is already implemented, only thing it is lacking right now is some proper hit detection, but that is being worked on... It will be all ready and done for Alpha.

About Rifles and Muskets, as I said, we will be posting a blog about that soon.

And just for the fun, a few pictures of it.

Unless the voice chat is really good, I'll still use team speak, and even then, team speak helps regiments play other games and hangout. It would be most useful during public play for organization I think
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: Andee on October 22, 2015, 04:42:55 am
Using proximity voice chat will make linebattles much more fun. Being able to talk to members of other regiments would be nice, and officers can communicate much more thoroughly. Not to mention, if anyone plays ARMA, the use of the taskforce radio plugin for TS could make things even more interesting.

As for public play, voice chat could be a bit more fun on a NA1 kind of server, but there will be a fair share of cancer as well.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!

It would be nice if regiment leaders could flick on/off an option that blocked voice chat of their regiment members in that server in order to avoid trash talking and such.

3D Voice chat means 3D.
I.e. players that are too far away won't be able to hear you.
Both enemy and friendly players will hear you ofc.

I think it will change the way people play linebattles and give orders. Obviously all regiments would have to agree not to use TS at the same time, otherwise a regiment using TS would be able to talk all over the map, while a regiment that uses 3D chat will only be able to talk to players closeby.

It works in Arma, people love it, so I do not see a reason why it should not work here. It greatly improves immersion and gameplay.

Bayonet will be attached by default, but you can choose to remove it if you want.

I doubt it will work out well and you most likely end up muting everyone except a few. (Regimental officers, in linebattle case)
As I wouldn't want to hear every single kid near me... But I guess it can somewhat still be controlled/influenced in linebattles.

This. Officers class orders come through louder, or use ducking of soldiers when the officer class is speaking

Charging would be completely different. You could yell and actually taunt the enemy while fighting them. Makes it more realistic, especially if an officer is yelling to cover a flank, the enemy could hear that and press that flank harder. Makes battle communication more difficult

You are all judging gameplay before we have even seen any material on that, let alone even play.

Besides that, the game is set in the 1860s. Shooting is gonna be your main activity, a bayonet charge was not something done a lot in the ACW.

Just going to take this opportunity to remind people that the majority of this community (including myself) feel melee was by far the best gameplay aspect/mechanic of NW. I'm still concerned that if BCOF is too shooting-centric, a lot of people will not enjoy it.

Not saying we should throw out all historical accuracy, just that it should be considered.

I trust they will find a good balance (or at least find a way to make shootouts less tedious than NW).

Post by: DaMonkey on October 23, 2015, 10:18:21 am
The problem isn't it being too shooting centered, as it's obviously on its own engine. Warband's engine makes the 'shooting' mods horrid because in order for it to be fun you need both an abundance of people and large maps, so that it's more based on maneuvering (you know... tactics); the problem being the player counts are capped somewhat low and the large maps are still small- and it is still incredibly laggy under these circumstances.

If FSE are able to deliver on their 500 player count, and hopefully have large maps that offer plenty of opportunity for movement then I am sure melee will become an afterthought. Honestly, I can't see how people wouldn't prefer it to the spin 2 win "competitive" (lol) melee the engine has stuck us with.

I'm pretty sure weapons will be more accurate to reflect on ACW weapon standards, which will automatically make charging less effective. I very much doubt shooting will become more important then melee, though - With the far majority of weapons single-shot muskets, melee will still be the way to quickly gather kills  :P

As long as the BCoF melee system is properly functional and competitive, I'm sure enough people will give it a try.
Besides that, I think it's pretty obvious after 3 years of playing the same game you tend to get pretty bored of it. This could be a good refreshment for those who are getting bored or already stopped playing this DLC. But then again, it has to be done right.

Chambering is more to real life than blocking is. You would use the momentum of your weapon to deflect an incoming weapon away from you. If you just held a weapon out like 'blocking' is in Warband, you're likely to break your wrist or mess up your arm/shoulder (or your weapon can break). That's not to say that it isn't displayed in a silly way.

Well the majority here has seen the "theory blog". (As that is what it looks like, especially as first blog) But what there is said has it worked out well and is it actually working?

Also, I find it quite odd that you say to only need/want a few people to test the Alpha. When possibly the biggest feature of the entire game needs at least a couple of hundred people in order to properly test. Though that is what comes to mind when thinking about testing such feature. So I'm not sure how you guys are planning to test this, as obviously getting a couple of hundred reliable people to test the alpha at the same time seems to be quite hard. 

So perhaps some more information about that? About how you will test the functionality.

But, a stable game performance and connection when playing with a couple of hundred players should be a major aspect of basic playability right?
Or am I seeing it wrong?

Bots can't help you test the network/ping/connection stability. At least, I doubt they can.

I think basic play-ability comes down to 'Hey can I fire this rifle without crashing the game?'. I'm not a Dev though, so maybe I'm just talking nonsense.

Betas are usually for server testing, to see if a game is optimised enough to support the amount of players that it should support. I'd reckon the Alpha is indeed just to see if people can actually join the server in the first place and perform basic gameplay options such as walking without having error codes plastered over your screen.

This.

We actually use our Alpha and Beta to test the game, which is also a reason we want to keep the player count low (I.e. 150 Euro for Alpha).

It's good that you actually test the game extensively before releasing instead of going the Steam early access way and just release an unfinished game, have people pay for it and then tell them: "But we're gonna update it!....some day..."

Chambering is more to real life than blocking is. You would use the momentum of your weapon to deflect an incoming weapon away from you. If you just held a weapon out like 'blocking' is in Warband, you're likely to break your wrist or mess up your arm/shoulder (or your weapon can break). That's not to say that it isn't displayed in a silly way.

I was thinking more in terms of the idea than how Taleworlds implemented it. Chambering, i.e attacking in the same direction in a given time window cancels the opponents attack and carries yours forward, is just as far fetched as being able to spin like crazy (although totally pointless if your opponent has a right mouse button).

It would be interesting to hear if FSE's plan is to keep NW's melee and reduce the turning speed, as that appears to be the only thing that they don't currently like.

That would be an interesting concept.  In addition to the "struggle" feature previously discussed, that may actually work quite well.  I would suggest that if there was any way to block, it would be like the following.

I like the up stab much better than an up swing


bots
Bots can't help you test the network/ping/connection stability. At least, I doubt they can.
They kinda can. They don't account for the same resources as a player, but they can help. According to one of the posts on this forum about hosting servers, the bots for NW take up "about 50% of player CPU usage, so if your server for examples is using 100% CPU with 200 bots your server can handle about 100 players. (Note that horses are seen to the server as bots so they take CPU usage as well!)" - Olafson
http://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=11.0

NW only supported the use of one core on a server as far as I know, so it was limited by the single cores performance. Its a lot of work to keep track of where 500 unique players are stabbing swinging shooting and walking so I'm assuming they are working on some way to keep track of people in parallel, perhaps relating to distance or something.

The engine is multi threaded, so no single thread problems here.
Furthermore in BCOF the network engine is a new Unique engine, that we specially wrote. It cannot be compared to the Mount & Blade engine's networking.
In theory we could do huge player numbers far over 500 players per server...  As such we will surely keep our promise to deliver you the 500 players per server.
We will probably go (far) over it, but that's for later.

Then it's not the question of whether it'll be possible, but what makes you think you can mass up even up to 500 players even once the game is out for a while? The levels for that would have to be enormous, and what if you can't get 500(Or even more) players on a constant basis, what then? Are 40 players going to run 2 kilometers in order to meet each other?

Of course, there'll be smaller game modes(I hope so) to take care of the faster paced and smaller level environments, but also for lower player counts.

Just a question.

I'm sure linebattles will get over 40 players if NW can get 200 after so long. As for the maps I think there's different gamemodes, we need to stop comparing it to NW as it's not the same game. There might not be 1 spawn per side, there might be 5 which you need to capture (like conquest but less messy I hope.)

Post by: The Mighty McLovin on October 27, 2015, 05:05:36 pm
I agree with this.

This game isn't going to be 100% different, so it is unwise to criticise the game when comparing to to NW. Yes, it would be laggy with 500 players on normal NW but on this game, a totally different game with a new engine, it will work.

Just a question.

All it means really is that there will be fewer active servers if not many people play. 500 players in an entire multiplayer game is very, very few. Even old games with dying communities manage to keep an active few hundred players spread out over several servers. If by some unfortunate circumstance BCOF only had a few hundred active players, they could all be in one server and still fill it up and make it fun.

Anyway, the only scenario I could see this being a problem is public play. Linebattles would easily attract 500 players, considering NW had multiple events in one night with over a thousand players collectively.

Definitely not for Alpha, unless we find enough time to spend on it. We do not even own a Mac, so that would be hard to test.

For the release, maybe. Unity supports it, but our own stuff, like the network engine is currently Windows only. In theory it is possible to make it work with both Linux and Mac, but it takes time and tbh. if you want to play games, get a Windows system.

Well, I never really had problems with the 30FPS thing.

That is fine with me, to me 30FPS and 60FPS is the same. Aslong as it is fluent its fine.
Obviously if you directly compare 30FPS and 60FPS with each other, you will notice a difference, but if it is always locked to 30FPS I do not see a problem. The game will run fluent, and everyone will run at the same Framerate which makes it MUCH easier for the Developers to optimize the game.

Anyway, that is my opinion. In BCoF we will obviously have a slider where you can choose at what FPS you want to play on (If your PC can actually reach that :P) and it will limit it to that. So if you wish to play with 60, you can. If you want to play with 45, sure why not. If you want to play with 1, sure that is possible, but why the hell would you want to do that?

Because there is literally 0 reason to go over 60?
Most screens only have 60hz anyway.

And limiting it makes sense, so you don't get laggs.
For example, I limit my NW/Warband to 45 FPS. Not because I can't run higher, but because I can run higher. I usually run at high FPS counts, lets say 600FPS, but when it drops to 200FPS, because a whole bunch of bots just spawned in, it will start lagging. FPS is high, but it still feels like it is lagging. That is because the framedrop of 400 frames is just way to high. Anything over 3 FPS drop is noticeable in a short laggspike. To prevent that, you lock your framerate to something that is lower than what your PC can handle.
25 is the lowest you should go, anything underneath that will seem laggy, but anything higher than 30 is not really worth it either.

144hz masterrace. Hearthstone is locked into 30 fps, i have to go to the text file to change it to 144 and it looks amazing since then.

I could probably tell the difference between 300fps on 300hz monitor and 144 on 144hz monitor just by moving my mouse cursor on the desktop in a circle. You can see how many tracers are there in the cursor.

According to the donation page here... http://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?action=treasury

You donated 20 euros which gives you

-20 Euros or more
Early Beta access to the game and a digital downloadable copy of the game at release.

Oh, that does answer a lot of stuff. Thanks

Although if ranks are entirely preset that will be disappointing. I prefer some abbreviations of ranks over others (Pte vs Pvt, Rec vs Rct)

Ah kept reading, appears they decided against preset ranks

And I haven't donated yet. Id prefer to pay once and get a steam copy

Is there a need a for a kick-starter for this because quite frankly I think if we look at what we, the community, need to consider we can come to several conclusions:
1. BCoF seems to be lacking the PR that other games similar to it have.  I  am not saying that what has been happening hasn't been productive but none of us besides the devs have a clue where they stand and how long it will take. 
2. Its December now.  I would like to see some screenshots and or game play before I hit that donate button.  Be up to date on what is going on, this will help us, the community, know if we need to donate more.  We would like to feel that what we are supporting is actually going to happen and that progress is moving forward. Otherwise we will go on to other endeavors that have shown that they are getting results done. 

That's all thanks guys :)

There is no need for a Kickstarter. The developers have enough financial capital to continue developing the game, mostly due to the money they made with Napoleonic Wars. At this point, donations are pretty much just a way to recruit people for the closed alpha and beta. The Devs don't want to awe you with screenshots, they want to develop and deliver a great game.

We never wanted Kickstarter, and we most likely will not do a Kickstarter, as it is not necessarily needed.

1. As said numerous times before, we did not do any PR yet. We will do that when we think that the game is at a state that we can officially announce it to the public. The announcement and posts you have seen so far are just for the NW crowd. We will start a proper PR "campaign" when it is time for that.
2. We will post something when we think that we have something that is worth showing. For now we are still finishing the lats bits of the Alpha. Everything took longer than expected (Several years longer) but the game will come out eventually. We have the patience (and funds) for that, it would be nice if you also have the patience and put a little trust in us. We work very differently to anyone out there. The game is done when it is done.

Yes, true. Back then we received almost no money from NW sales. Paradox took the largest amount of our sales and kept huge "reserves" of our money. But ever since Taleworlds and Paradox split , we actually get money from the game. Actually, this year has been the best year for us so far.

Yeah... no. The only other game FSE has developed is NW and both games have nothing in common. BCoF is set in a different era, built on another engine. NW and BCOF have nothing in common. So please, tell me what BCOF is a DLC for?

Think about it like this: You paid money for a game maybe two, three years ago, and you STILL can't play it. HA HA HA. People go from childhood to adulthood in that time. I bet there's at least one donator who will die before BCOF comes out.

No, you paid money to donate, not to buy a game. What's more, people here are literally complaining about a game not going to come out... in a thread which is announcing an alpha being released this month.

Nah, there are donating rewards which mean you can get the game when it comes out and other such things depending on how much you donate- however people are treating this like a pre-order

Post by: Furrnox on December 15, 2015, 07:25:26 pm
I don't really see this as donating since we get reward and when first announced it was said by FSE that the game would take about a year to complete now it's been 3 years and we don't even have an alpha yet. So I think people have the right to be pissed.

No. An employee is A. usually paid and B. is in a contract agreement with his employer. I'm neither.

Besides, I really doubt the FSE staff give away their codes and tetxures to moderators so they can look into it. Duuring's business is managing the forum, not developing the game.

meh, the alpha will make or break the game, most people really have no idea what BCoF will play and feel like (animations, maps, gamemodes etc)
hopefully some super-secret leaked footage should put that to bed quickly enough

yeah there will be an NDA, according to vince a few months ago. they might let big streamers stream it, but i doubt that for the very early stages of the alpha.

Have you completely forgotten that they are a small team? Big studios, with hundreds of workers, can easily pump out games every year, but unlike them, FSE and TaleWorlds both have small studios, which means the games will take longer to develop. And are you going to completely dismiss the fact that there are still 9 more days in December?

You dont need to be like DICE or EA to have good PR. They gave us 5 screenshots in 3 years. And then they said "Hey look we almost have an alpha!! You need to give us just 150 dollars to see it!" That's the worst PR campaign that I've ever seen.

Its unlikely until after said alpha is released im afraid. The current focus for fse is to try and deliver said alpha within December and likely they will want to take whatever time they can to polish or at least bug fix any new incoming issues. Once the alpha starts there will be more opportunities to take footage of x players playing for trailers etc.

While PR hasn't been the best I'd rather they use their limited resources to make the game good instead of using the time to make it seem good. I'm sure they'll learn and improve their processes if this game is successful.

You know that this is the actual game view in unity, don't you? (You can see it on the upper pic) That results in this aliasing effects and low res pic.

And it is still Work in Progress (I havent thought I would wrote this anyway).
But I'm glad that they showed of some actual in game work in an actual scenario.

Yeah I've just seen the new post, that's ridiculous, 150 Euros for a Unity Alpha for a game that isn't done and that kept us waiting for 3 years for 5 screenshots, that's the most retarded shit I've seen in my life, I'm sorry.
Sometimes you have to improvise FSE, don't make people throw money at you for a game you put on low priority, release an open alpha at-least for the people that want to buy it for like 15-20 or even 30 dollars to enjoy the game and for the people that paid 150 euros make think of something special to give them like a fucking cookie or something, I'm getting tired of Mount&Blade and I can't believe I'd need to pay 150 euros to get a new game.

The Alpha isn't for consumers its for people wanting to sample the game along with testing it. It's going to be a long road till Beta, I see you're looking for a new game to play the Alpha version of BCoF isn't going to satisfy you. Wait till Beta it's only 20 bucks, which you I think know is reasonable. Welcome to the Forums!

A $1000  is nothing, thats like £800. If you have a PC that costs 400-600 £££/$$$ (laptops, notebooks. etc) why on earth are you trying to play games? They're purely for facebook and essays.

But expecting everyone to own a $1k computer to play the game is unrealistic, and it's much better to try to get it to run as efficiently and smoothly as possible, on as many systems as possible, so more people will play it.

You can build a computer for $400 that can play most games on at least medium settings. Not everyone is a graphix whore m8.

$400 is it called an Xbox/PS4? I think that's bull you can make a PC that runs games on Medium, name these games are they click anime games or Battlefield?

Plenty of people have done it dude.

http://www.toptengamer.com/top-300-gaming-pc-build/

And by most games I mean the majority of PC games out there in general, not just the newest and most demanding ones. I'm sure you could run Battlefield on low with a well built <$400 PC. Not everyone is going to be playing the newest games anyway. If it's a budget computer you probably won't be dropping $60 every other month.

I mostly meant that M&B players will probably make a big part of the community. And players of this game tend to own worse computers. For example, mine used to be a really good one, but it was back when I was given it 7 years ago :D I'm personally going to get a better computer soon, but still, I can't imagine a line of "far than 500" characters with a detailed graphics and all other stuff you're planning in an online game, where ping and fps matter a lot; but hey, who knows what future can bring?  ;)
That'll surely be increadible if you can make it! Best of luck with this

We will have many settings to make the game run.

But We will probably only support DX11 cards.

on my PC i can run 500 characters on my screen + the scene with all characters animated and standing on a 20 by 40 meter spot. around 40 FPS With highest settings.

In real life situations you will not have all characters on screen and not so close by, making them lower detailed on longer distance, as such it will run much better.

My PC has not the best stuff, just a Nvidia 970 GTX and a Intel I7 2600K

I am sorry that we are going with the crowd of modern game requirements.


Oh wait, no. I am not.

If you can't run the game get a better PC. If you can't even run Warband, then something is wrong. 300$ Laptops are not made for gaming, they are made for browsing the internet.
If you only have 300$ to spend, then at least buy a desktop PC, so you get some more performance out of it. But even then you can maybe play games from 2007...

Besides, we haven't even said anything about System requirements yet... They will be rather low, but don't expect any great graphics or super awesome FPS. It will most likely work fine on a 400$ PC, but as I said, don't expect anything too great.

I am mostly interested in if we will be able to change the DirectX level for the game, or will it be locked to one level (11 I guess)?
Also will there be a fps lock like in Warband/NW or can you get more than 120 fps?
I can run it 'Very High' with HDR off at 60 FPS. Which is good, because the human eye can't notice anything faster than 60 FPS.

Theory: 60 fps is just as good as 120 fps.

Test: i play with the game at 60 fps, and later I play with 120.

Conclusion: 120 fps is noticably smoother.

You are right. But that means for the final product when the "full" game, final product gets released, people dont care about its alpha or beta when it is already at the final stage.  People care about the present. You are correct, I am sure you heard that most people do not buy the game as alpha/beta.

I want a "simulator", or anything close to realistic. If you prefer something more arcade or competitive, play NW or BCoF. That is if BCoF's melee system resembles NW.

I would agree with you, the problem is rife throughout the Arma community. The good thing is that there is almost no interaction between units unless they absolutely want to, so it is normally contained within them.

Edit: This was going to be a quick meme and became a rant typing on my phone in boredom, enjoy.

Okay, enough Arma-discussion for now.

I know its against the rules to drive a thread off topic but how does the rule apply when there is nothing relating to the subject to discuss? Wait for updates? Lock the thread as discussion has run its course? For instance, in this thread where no new information has been made available to discuss for over a year (385 days and counting) because the devs have approximately the same (being a bit generous) marketing and PR skills as whoever thought this ad was a good idea:

(http://static4.businessinsider.com/image/4c5035237f8b9a10476c0000-506-253/the-10-worst-ad-campaigns-of-all-time.jpg)

Seriously, the off topic nature of discussion here is just another example of the giant missed opportunity in marketing BCOF.

How difficult is it that it now takes 1 year+ per dev update. Is it that time consuming to make an occasional dev blog/update? It doesn't even need to be groundbreaking stuff either. "Hey, we're tuning the game based on responses from the alpha. Its looking pretty good so far!" Is the entire dev team really so head-in-monitor occupied with the game 24/7 that no one can take 5 minutes to type a sentence or two on anything relating to the game every month or two at least? Anything... Seriously, anything at all...

You know you have messed up when 8/10ths or more of your target audience have already left the community and a substantial amount of those remaining dont even believe the game is coming out in their lifetimes.

Its like there was a rapture to War of Rights and those of us here have all been left behind.

I want FSE to be successful, hell I want the devs to roll in the money by the barrel-full. But sometimes it seriously feels like this feeling isnt mutual...

Even tho we see snippets of content from time to time we have also asked for a full dev blog.
I have 2 replies to this matter that where made in the secret donator shack (so not complete threads but replies to the one where we see secret images of the game  :P ).

However, these replies where made by Olafson and Duuring and since they didnt post it for everyones eyes I dont "feel safe" posting them here. :-X

The dates they where posted where:
November 2 2014
January 2 2017

I searched for "developer" and "developer blog" so if they talked about this without mentioning those words iv missed their replies. I also only look at that one thread so if they have replied somewhere else iv never seen it.

Whether they're helpful or not, snippets of news on the donator board aren't updates, or nearly enough for what FSE has promised. It is undeniable at this point that the community at large has been kept in the dark with BCoF.

Yeah my last post was from November 2016 but whatever...

I didnt say there are no updates. I said:

A) There are not enough
B) They are not addressing the target audience
C) They are not making anyone who isn't already aware of the game aware of it
and
D) They are not building hype/excitement at all

War of Rights did all of those things and look what happened, they raised more money from sheer hype in one day than BCoF has in what, 5 years?

Just look at the state of this forum. A solid 75-80% of the people left here don't believe BCoF is coming out full-stop, let alone are excited about its release. NW had an absolutely burgeoning community with huge potential to build it up even more heading into a sequel/follow-up standalone game (would have liked another NW game but the potential was easily still there for the US Civil War).  2 or 3 years of sparse updates, disregarding the existing community almost entirely to "focus on BCoF" rather than nurturing it and keeping it interested, and general shitty policy turning away users (aka customers) and what do we have now? A hollow shell with more interest in War of Rights than the sequel by the dev team that made NW in the first place (and thus held all the cards in the beginning.)

Also, "there are updates like that in the donator board!" is a shitty excuse for equally shitty marketing. Do you pay to watch Nike commercials on television? Do you pay to watch ads on youtube? Do you pay to watch announcement trailers from e3? Hell no, because the whole point is to try to build hype in the game and attract new and prior customers to purchase it. If you want to have some content for donators only as a sneak peak that is also fine. But that doesn't mean you just about wholesale stop all other forms of advertising, community building, outreach, etc. etc.

FSE had a colossal opportunity to press on with a thriving community into BCoF and there is no question about it, they have absolutely blown it with their shitty marketing and godawful community policies/support.

They don't owe me anything, true, but each year that they release nothing they increasingly lose business and credibility.

In who's mind? Yours? You act like they live or die by this community. They don't. A game will forge it's own community and, if it's good enough, the players will come. I've seen plenty of indie games on steam which had no prior following, take off.

You know someone only attacks the man when they can't attack the argument. We've all done it, but being the better person involves articulating yourself without personal attacks.

I've just explained that they might not be at the stage where they want advertising to be shown yet. None of us know how far along the alpha is. They'll begin their advertising campaign when they want. As I've previously explained, there are plenty of indie games which have received a decent following and sales without extensive advertisement. If you want updates, then head to the donator board, it's as simple as. If you're not willing to donate, then don't expect anything of someone who I'm sure is stressed enough as it is without people at their throats telling them how to run their company and how to develop their game.

We all need to remember that they are the ones who created the Napoleonic Wars that we all know and love. Trust them to do what they think is best. If you're so bothered about the game being publicized then get the word out there yourself.

IMO, it kind of seems like a typical kickstarter gag. Where a dev announces a game, gets a bunch of donations, and runs. That's what this like right now. It was totally our decision to donate and we're not entitled to anything, but it's pretty shady when you advertise for donations for your product and never come through with it.

they are working on the game.  they haven't just stopped and moved on.  i can't really say more than that.

We're "attacking" you because your "arguments" are both asinine and completely off the point.

The whole point is they had all the ingredients they needed to launch forward via a thriving community and completely lost the momentum. Might they make it successful in the end? Perhaps. I sincerely hope so. But their failure to support this community and build hype is a monumental missed opportunity. From a 90% chance of success as long as the end product is good to probably a low 20's% chance if that.

The thousands who played NW are GONE and they are not coming back. Many dont even believe BCoF is coming out.

We all need to remember that they are the ones who created the Napoleonic Wars that we all know and love.

And I am very grateful for the game they made. But lets be real, the NW DLC is not especially great by any stretch on its own merit. Melee is an exploitable mess of bugs and weird shit, there are loads of bugs/glitches, etc. etc. What really made this DLC great were the regiments/events and especially the youtubers that attracted thousands of people into it. If it wasn't for the community I would probably have 200 hours in game instead of 3000. Aside from creating the official servers (then neglecting them wholesale) and the forum, the devs have done pretty much nothing to actually nurture this community. And by leaving certain people in positions of power on the forum who havent even played NW in years they have driven away customers from here too.

I don't see anyone else throwing about insults except you. If Nw, a poorly made game, attracted so many, then imagine what a polished game would be like. If you dislike bug filled DLC, then maybe you should appreciate more the time they are taking to get things just right.

You're getting ahead of yourself by demanding advertising for a game that isn't even finished. Let them finish the damn thing first, then worry about how much it will sell.

At the end of the day what would you rather the developers show? Little clips of buggy gameplay which reflect nothing or a finished game. I know if there is one thing that has put me off buying the games in the past, it's seeing/hearing that they are unfinished and buggy. If nothing has been released to the general public, that means there isn't anything yet to show.

NW has been dying for years, it was always going to with or without BCoF. That's why the new game has to, and imo will, form its own community.

Maybe if you're criticising people who are in power on the forums, maybe you should remember that people wouldn't really expect insult-slinging from an admin of official servers. No excuse for that, so don't try and frame your disagreements with my points as a justification for it.

Maybe if you're criticising people who are in power on the forums, maybe you should remember that people wouldn't really expect insult-slinging from an admin of official servers. No excuse for that, so don't try and frame your disagreements with my points as a justification for it.

Quote me where I have "insulted" you other than saying you're dense (which from your stubborn refusal to actually bother to read what we are saying, evidenced by the fact you keep making the same off topic points, is simply a fact).

"dense" is hardly "slinging insults" anyway. And pointing out gross mismanagement of a community is hardly insulting either. Its simple fact. There's a difference between appreciating and respecting the work of a dev team/company and becoming an outright apologist for poor business decisions/management. You can love a game and its makers while acknowledging where mistakes/failures have occurred, it doesn't require 1000% bootlicking and telling them their farts smell like roses. You seem to fail at making this distinction between a fan/customer and a lapdog/full-on-shill/apologist.

"Quote where I insulted you other than the bits where I insulted you". To be honest you even called me a shill in the same post. That's hilarious. I mean, I don't know what it means where you live, but in England dense is certainly an insult.

The points aren't off topic at all. You're saying that they are failing to take advantage of a community and I'm telling you why this might not be the best time for them to do so. You only come out with the same insults and retorts because you can't back up what you're saying with anything else.

I suppose we all better now to your superior business mind though. I'm sure you know all of the inner workings and trends. If only FSE followed your advice.

Your entire response to my post was
1) Ask me to quote where you insulted me (whilst doing it yourself)
2)Reinforcing the insults, proving my point further.
3)Complain some more
4)Insult me some more.
 
You seem to be having trouble having an actual conversation without getting mad and dishing out insults. If you can't articulate yourself well enough without personally attacking the person you're arguing against then you just weaken your argument. As I've previously said, we've all done it so I'll accept that this is out of character and simply because you're stressed or have had a bad day. Please learn to discuss something in a more mature manner, it'll get you further in life.

Don't know why you're dragging in official server admin policy into your post unless you're expecting a reward. We are not paid employees and we have no company line to hide behind. Several of us do think the BCoF development and marketing has been mismanaged, especially once the blogs stopped entirely, and we're allowed to say so. I don't think it's asking all that much to have Vince or Olaf make some two sentence developer blog telling everybody that they're still working on the game and that they still intend to complete it with a screenshot or two of something happening . . . and we're not going to get punished for wanting the opportunity to buy their game.

Lmao disagreeing with someone is not attacking them. The insults also are. I mentioned the admin role because his critique of forum members in positions of power is ironic considering his own conduct whilst representative of FSE on their servers. Other representatives are also unpaid. June sees fit to criticise them but cannot control his own conduct.

As I have said many times, which was the reason behind the post in the first place:

If you want a small update, head to the donator's board!!!

You clearly just came in here without having read the entire conversation, and if you did then you've chosen to be very selective with your intake. I'm not entirely sure what you're referencing when you are talking about being "punished for buying the game", the entire conversation is about advertising.

he has no position of power on these forums.  he is no different that the other 95% of the server staff who are just admins of the official servers and nothing more.(some are mods, like me)  they are  subject to the same rules as everyone else. 

i don't control my admins thoughts.  They can like who they want.  they can hate who they want.  they can believe what they want.  if they want to be/stay admins, they are required to follow the rules set forth to them as admins(even if they dont like  all the rules), and behave on the forums.    They can have their own opinion on the progress of BCoF and its marketing.  i wont punish my admins for not liking something about BCoF as long as they are respectful when they share said views publicly.

as for his "insult"   its minor at best.   

its time this went back on topic, rather than writing back and forth about perceived insults.  if the posts continue to be about perceived insults, i will just removed them.

if you have a problem with one of my admins, then you can send me a PM.

Again somebody turns up who hasn't read my post properly. I didn't say that he wasn't following any rules that were set out for him. I said that, if he wants people in positions of power to conduct themselves properly, then maybe he should do so himself.

You're right the insults are minor, I'm not genuinely offended by them. The point is that it's hard to have a genuine conversation when someone is constantly looking for ways to undermine the other person. Attack the argument not the person.

I have nothing against anyone in power on the forum. I feel like there have been mistakes made in forum and game/community administration but don't hold personal grudges against anyone. I do believe the devs and admins and such have at least acted in good faith and without malice. All I'm saying is there was a colossal opportunity to nurture the community and drive it forward and they missed the chance. Although I don't even know why I'm posting this because I have already stated all of this 3 times only for you to make the exact same points you keep making that keep missing the mark. I am not "demanding" anything, we are not "entitled" to anything etc. etc. They may ramp up their advertising 1000% in the coming months. They may entice thousands to buy their games. They may make BCoF a smashing success. I sincerely hope that they do. All I am saying is they had a fantastic opportunity with a huge existing customer-base (in a thriving community) and they let it slip away.

Also, I said that you seem to fail in making the distinction between being a fan/customer and a lapdog/shill (in expecting me to not lament anything i perceive to be mistakes from the dev team, ignoring any negatives and only speaking positives). I didn't say you are a shill.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: Toffee Lad on August 07, 2017, 07:17:51 pm
I understand what you're saying but we need to have faith. I understand that it's frustrating but if we all stick around and provide our support, the rest will come together. The advertising isn't being pumped out because there isn't really a great deal to advertise

Off the top of my head I believe the dead have mostly been reworking animations and sorting out some problems that have been getting in the way of progress (someone correct me if I'm wrong). I'm sure once there is a truly playable version of the game they'll go full throttle with the advertising. We just have to be patient.

Sorry to anyone reading if I've butchered this post, I'm in the car atm.

As depressing as it is, BCoF has long passed its time. Even Napoleonic Roleplay - the most popular public NW server by far - has taken massive hits to its playercount the past few weeks.

Note: While it's true people have been saying "NW is dying" for a quite a while, I'm definitely going short on NW's stock this time around.
Title: Re: Developer Blog 26 - Alpha Announcement!
Post by: Vincenzo on August 08, 2017, 12:19:43 pm
We are working really hard on finishing many aspects of the game right now.

I would say we hit the same problems as Taleworlds has with Mount & blade 2;  You have many guys working on many aspects independently, but actually putting it together and making a complete game is a big feat.
Constant updating underlying engine, changing concepts or finding better ways to do things, and having very, very high goals whilst having a quite small team makes development of this game quite hard, harder than we and others expected.

We shifted our focus at this point to actually finishing the game, making sure core concepts and gameplay are perfect and adding more and more of the other finished parts to the game.

Release date? hard to say.. We are pressing hard for some kind of beta this year.

I would say that we are bad at communicating with the community, for a developer it's not easy to always tell people what you are working on, and how far you are, game development is not always visible to the outside world or understandable. :)
Rather than trying to make it consumable we would focus on actually making something for the game.

Though we will try to remedy this, first of all there will be a big blog post outlining what was made and happened in the last year, and what the future will bring coming soon to you.. and from then on a more open development will be shown.


I know NW is dying, and has been for some time, then again it is still the most played multiplayer game in the Warband engine, outclassing any mod, and even native or the newer released viking conquest. I would call that a great success for a game so old, and graphically so low. :)

IF you have any questions about specific BCOF things you can always hit me a PM, or write me on steam. I'm quite lax on showing things if you wont throw it everywhere on YouTube..
The reason we are not allowing alpha testers to publish things is that things are not always pretty right now, or don't work correctly so it could scare away people that want a polished game. It will change soon however.

Glad to see a statement from Vince!

That's the point tho, I don't think anyone really cares about the size of the content in a blog. As long you show your followers that something is happening. It's understandable that you don't want to preview assets from your game that could be changed in a later phase or another reason similar to that.

But something simple like finished artillery models ^ could be more then enough  for your supporters. Anything is better then having months and months of silence to the majority of the community. It keeps your potentional future community closer to your product.

What is even the point of continuing your best toadie impression? Like, anytime someone critiques FSE (all in a coherent and respectful way, I might add) you take it as a personal insult.

Indeed. You can't be serious while saying that potentional new followers are required to donate in order for them to get a view of something that is similar like a preview-devblog. That is the worst possible way to attract new followers, especially when FSE has stated multiple times that they don't necasserly need any addtional new donations to finish the game. If my memory serves me right.

There's the thing, FSE did start off with the blogs after they announced their game and promised to keep that up. And a long time it went well with regularly blogs to keep the community updated and linked to their development.

Just to be clear, I want nothing else but the best for FSE's future as a company. They have provided me with thousands of hours of entertainment in the past and I believe that they really deserve it.
That is also the reason why I am hammering on this. I'm glad that Vince has stated that there will be one blog soon. But one is simply not enough, so I do sincerely hope that after that blog they will continue to bring out blogs on a regular basis. It would be a shame to see a big and really easy oppertunity to gather a larger community for the future wasted.
