View Full Version : Are the graphics good?

When I was watching the gameplay trailer, I don't mean to sound like I'm not excited for the game, and I noticed the graphics weren't that good. My question is, for anyone who's played the beta, are the graphics better or are they the same?

The May gameplay trailer wasn't made to be released to the public. It was just a rush project for a business pitch. So the quality of the footage itself isn't the best.

As for the graphics, I'll let someone else a little less biased tell you if they're "good," but I will address a couple likely concerns. The UI (including the unit GUI and portraits) has been completely redone since that footage. Almost all of the winter textures have been redone. Select building and unit textures are in the process of being improved. The World Map design and light cycle have been improved. And, what I would assume would be your likeliest concern, the heroes in the close-up cinematics are being completely redesigned from scratch. For a sneak peak at what one of the new heroes will look like, check out the render in the frame for Screenshot of the Week.

With that said, we've never claimed to have the best graphics. When you have 1,000+ units battling, performance is more important than graphics, at least how we see it.

High quality game play has always made graphics that weren't top of the line, outshine it for sure.

Will any units have different/random skins within their battalions?

I guess the graphics will be at least okay.

If you make high res models etc. then imagine how it will be to play when you donīt have a "super" computer when a big battle starts ;)

While the graphics might not be the best, I still found the scenery to be breathtakingly beautiful in places and found the armies to look quite epic. Not the best, but still decent enough to make the game look alright while playing it.

Yes, I agree. The scenery is breathtaking and I hope to get the chance to be part of the next BETA.

Apparently its great but I'm not sure how powerful a rig is required, sure the system reqs are out at the beta signup page, but to have it rendered like that, seems like quite a lot of power required.

12-04-2010, 04:27 PM
From what i saw the graphics in the pictures look pretty awesome, i hope that it maintains that pace for the game itself because i would really love to see it in full graphics on my comp :)

graphics are great for RTS and the environments are some of the best I have seen.

Im pretty sure the graphics are going to great due to the fact that the require a very high set of minium requirements to even play it.

As long as they have plenty of graphic options with extremes at both ends for high-end and low-end pc's id be happy.

I think that game play is more important then graphics ever will be. Plus if the graphic are too high on requirement you get a large amount of people that can play.

LordShaden
12-04-2010, 05:46 PM
Believe me, I've looked around - there's nothing really like this out there. This game is going to be Really big. The graphics vs. what you can do, are just downright awesome.

efz88
12-04-2010, 10:17 PM
I have played a few MMORTS games out there and I have to say that this graphically looks the best out of all of them. Just make sure you have the rig to handle it.

theangel04
12-04-2010, 11:06 PM
I find the graphics in all the videos that have been relased amazing...not because of the quality (everything is pretty bad) but because of optimization. there's going to be scores of units on the battlefield, castles and so much more on the screen at the same time. If it is going to run on the specified requirements with all these details then I find it extremely well optimized..just an opinion

illicit87
12-04-2010, 11:14 PM
From my experience, most games during beta don't have release quality graphics.... this is to more or less test out the mechanics of the game itself. Right before release is when most give it the gas. Plus I don't think the units/effects look bad at all.. especially for a MMO-RTS :)

and i think i shouldn't judge the graphics right now because it's still
in closed beta improvements will take place :D

Don't focuss on the graphics. In this stage, gameplay is more important. Graphics will come after that.

Good quality graphics are very important to me in MMO's. I think that "Dawn of Fantasy" will live up to that from what I've seen.

Graphics aren't game saving but bad graphics can put me of games sometimes, but from what I have seen so far I don't think that graphics would be a problem on this one.

That will pretty much cover everyones wishes. Personally i would like AWESOME!!! graphics.. so i would start with the maximum settings, then scale down little by little until the gameplay runs well on my computer.

So i vote for extremes at both ends.

Also... units should show upgrades, like have chainmail amor when u upgrade to that, and plate when u upgrade to that, weapons, horses.. etc. the variety in units in battles would be great!

I really do hope that there will be visual representation of equipment upgrades. It's one of the reasons I upgrade my units in other games.
I don't know why but I love seeing my units getting better equipment after I invested some money in them.

szebus
12-20-2010, 12:39 PM
Still with the game having great graphics doesn't mean that they can not make an advanced option for graphic detail for let's say other who don't really have good PC's or have laptops, to lower the detail settings, turn of shader, shadows antialising and so on.

gnoss
01-19-2011, 04:36 PM
*just read the first few posts so excuse me if im not making any sence*

i can immageine what would happen if the game had too good graphics that most PC's would crash whit the big matches.

Id build thousands and thousands of the cheapest crappiest soldiers and crash the opponents computer, then crush him while hes trying to get back in =D

dverity
01-20-2011, 12:51 PM
This is certainly one of the first things that came to mind for me too after reading one of the articles. I can certainly understand keeping the graphics quality down for some machine and laptop players, but I game enough that it is something I am happy to upgrade my system and have come to really enjoy the best the industry has to offer.
If things do start out lower quality, I do hope that it is something that will be address very soon after launch.

Refleax

Graphics aren't that important

Some tend to disagree, people are just too used to fancy graphics but that's just today's mentality. I can name quite a few good games which had no graphics at all but game play wise they were just awesome like AoE2 and Empire Earth 1.

from what I say in the gameplay trailer I thought the graphics were just fine. Look at WoW, those graphics arent great yet it is the most popular MMO to date. Graphics help a game for sure but they arent everything.

Oh yeah, and DoF turns its graphics into an advantage as we can render a lot more stuff on screen at once.

Gamerfett
01-21-2011, 05:33 PM
From everything I seen the graphics look great. Plus you have to remember with watching videos of gameplay that everything has been decompressed and ratios changed.

Totality agree! Even game with best graphic is nothing without good gameplay. I hope DoF will have great gameplay :)

Rhino

Graphics are a major factor in a game but the gameplay is the actualy main factor. I would play any game if it had amazing gameplay and bad graphics. Graphics will not do much alone as it is only something to look at and you cant interct with.

EpiDemiC
01-22-2011, 03:36 AM
im guessing this game is going to be more ram dependent then anything.

pkdavid
01-22-2011, 09:25 AM
why always want very good graphics? this is not the graphics that make the game is good, this is just a bonus, a game is good at 90% if it has good gameplay.

(it's just my point of view)

rebelglitch
01-22-2011, 10:58 AM
I agree. RTS are about the game play first and foremost. the graphics help bring you into the world but without great game play ... well itís like this for me I'll play a game that has subpar graphics but will not play a game that has poor game play and balance with outstanding graphics. Looking around the site, the pics Iíve seen of the game look brilliant.

mikil100
01-22-2011, 11:46 AM
I think the graphics are very good.
You must remember that the game is not yet finished, and it is an RTS...

If you put Crysis-like graphics on an RTS it would be choppy as hell.
But, for a game of its magnitude its graphics are very good.

joppe99999
01-22-2011, 12:04 PM
When I watched the trailer the grapichs looked amezing.. Don't forget it is an strategy game, not a first person shooter or something.. And if you look to other mmorts games, this game had the best grapichs of them all!!

billy341
01-31-2011, 08:11 AM
The graphics look pretty decent, im sure there will be many optimization options available, got to remember its an RTS so will be alot of units on screen, that kinda limits the graphics coolness high end.

Rounlin
01-31-2011, 08:27 AM
While I do not think the graphics will be crystal clear like wow, the game I doubt could be even developed at that FPS w/o causing so much lag your screen wouldnt move.

delar
02-14-2011, 10:54 AM
i agree with the others. the grafic is important for newcomers, who wants to buy a game.
so first, they will look for good graphics. but after that, the gameplay is more important to let the game become a legend like warcraft 3. its important (gameplay) to play a game again again again, because first: the game makes fun and secound: the game has a good balance and gameplay

acepilot23
02-16-2011, 09:29 PM
Definately, great games like Dwarf Fortress get turned down all the time because of bad graphics. Dawn of Fantasy probably wont have too much of a problem; the graphics are good and the game supports thousands of units at a time. I wouldn't think there'd be a problem with people buying the game except for subscription fees and computer specs.

:D Agreed, I wonder why The Toady One doesn't officially sponsor or list graphic patches like Mayday. Still, the gameplay in this game is really what makes me want to play it.

LiTos456
02-19-2011, 02:47 PM
The strength of the game is in the technical presentation, not the visual one.
I.e. you can have thousands of units on one screen without destroying your computer.

Personally having a old rig, an accessible game with low graphic requirements is a welcome change.

Dawiichan
02-24-2011, 09:17 PM
While the graphics aren't the best for an RTS, you got to remember how many units can be at the map at a certain time. While I'm almost certain my PC could take it pretty well, I'm sure some people aren't as lucky. So the need for low graphics are a good thing. Maybe they will have a patch with increased graphics though for the players with PC's capable of playing it.

Bloodkilt
02-25-2011, 12:08 PM
The graphics look up to par. But how massive are the battles in this game? I'm sure that will factor in playability.

Alex Walz
02-25-2011, 07:11 PM
Thanks for the feedback! We're really excited to unveil the new high-poly hero models and animations later on which will really help for immersion in those zoomed-in cinematic shots.

As for how massive the battles are, there can easily be upwards of 2000 units on the field. So that's always the main consideration - it's not an RPG or FPS where there are only a couple units that can be much more detailed.

radeonmaster
02-27-2011, 12:14 AM
I think detailed graphics are extremely overrated in the RTS genre. What constitutes good, I think, is simple graphics that allow for maximum performance and let the user easily distinguish among units. So, I like that the team is prioritizing performance, but I worry that units might not have a distinct flair.

TheTower
02-27-2011, 03:05 AM
Graphics seems to be good, for an MMORTS. I just hope it really can cope with massive battles well enough.

Sabinox
03-24-2011, 12:52 PM
I'm pretty sure that graphics are not at the same level of the recent RTS single player game. Yet, there a good reason for not making hardware requirements 2 high. An MMO need a big ammount of players to be enjoyble(and not all of us have beastly PCs) and an mmo is somehow "heavier" than a single player.

Anonimo

majpronin
03-26-2011, 05:32 AM
i dont care about the grafics in strategy game. As long as AI of the units works fine, i'm fine with the game. You want grafics and dumb AI- go play Shogun2 or Crysys2. I think strategy is about how AI plays, not some cool visuals behind the dumb gameplay. Stronghold kingdoms have no grafics really, but gameplay is wonderful, but very slow.

Griegor Mcvennor
03-26-2011, 10:27 AM
You can't have top notch graphics in a game with potentially thousands of units clashing and making movements along with explosions and such going on. You do that, you basically cut your game off from 3/4 of the customer base. Contrary to popular believe, top notch computers are not the norm especially right now.

In any event, I consider it a disease of the mind that afflicts people these days that cause them to obsess over graphics. Some developers have fallen victim to this as well. There are games made in the 90's that are 10x better than what is coming out now because some developers and especially big publishers care more about the shiny textures than they do quality game play.

In short, I'd rather have 16 bit GFX and an awesome game than HD resolutions and a terrible game.

So much for our plan to make graphics worse:)

Some thing will still get improved. For example the 36 new high poly models for all the heroes we are adding in game this month, you might have seen some of them in Alex`s Fantasy Fridays. In addition we are still to add standard controls for AA and other video card enabled features.

willyneo
04-01-2011, 02:51 PM
Graphics are pretty good. When you first start out and you don't have much it looks like its kinda lacking. But when you start to get bigger armies you start to not really look so closely at the units and you start to realise the graphics are pretty good for the amount of units your controling.

rafaelfbl
04-02-2011, 02:12 PM
i think that they are good, in fact, there are lots of armies, buildings and etc during battles, and, if the graphics were better i think that it would cause many processing issues.

Roceh
04-04-2011, 01:42 AM
From what i've seen the graphics seem fine for an RTS, you can never have FPS level poly counts due to the unit numbers, also generally as a rule MMO's have lower system requirements to attract greater numbers of people...

Martillo
04-04-2011, 11:08 AM
I believe that the graphics could be better without cousing too much lagg - But when that is said, I would much rather have a smooth running game than af very pretty slideshow of screenshots ;)

And as mentioned before me, graphics for RTS (and mmos) are usually lower than other games - Taking that in account the graphics for this game is very well made, and they do the job :D

When I went to Tech College I had a mentor that used to say "It's not important how pretty it is - It's important that the animations creates the illusion and feeling they are supposed to"

I say that the graphics of this game does that exactly. Creates the illusion and puts the "feel" to the game that the developers are going for :D

If you like the graphics now, great! But if you don't, rest assured knowing we've been putting a lot of time into some key graphic elements and hope to show off some of the new animations soon. :) Not to mention that the last trailer is pretty old so I wouldn't use any videos to measure the graphics...

But a new one is on its way. :)

DeathAdder
04-08-2011, 04:19 AM
Graphics is all fine and good but it's gameplay that's the most important and often too much effort is put into graphics and the game falls short on the playability side.

fooflinger
04-09-2011, 10:35 PM
This is just a guess but it looks like their using the same engine as Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2.

I'd say the graphics are quite good considering how many units are on screen!

Hello,

After long years of wait I finally got beta key and able to try Dawn of Fantasy beta. But my new PC has broke again which is:

AMD Phenom X4 965
4GB RAM
HD5770 1GB video card

So, may I be able to try Dawn of Fantasy on my older PC? Can it run it?

AMD Athlon X2 4600+
2 GB RAM
8800GTS 320 mb video card

Nope, DOF is using its own proprietary engine. Meaning Reverie made their own engine for this game.

From what I have seen with the trailers and gameplay videos, the amount realism in the graphics is pretty intense. One would think that there will be options of turning up the quality of graphics to a near eye exploding level or turning graphics down so people with lower end computers or people who dont have the money for the best/newest parts or computers can run the game as smooth as possible

TimidObserver
04-13-2011, 07:07 AM
It looks good from what I've seen, but I worry about the PC requirements being a little to high. With the economy and all, I imagine that people are not buying a lot of new computers.

Back. It is very good, trees and grass sway in the wind, still has some sharp edges but def the best RTS graphics I've seen, can't compare to RPG graphics though.
However, I'm on dual HD5870m and i7 840qm with 8GB ram on an alienware laptop, still get choppy even on medium. Needs serious optimizing.

I'd rather have higher performances than awesome graphics. The fact of not needing a brand new computer to play would be perfect. By the way, at the moment, I'm actually quite satisfied by the screenshots I've looked at, so for me the graphic looks fine. I've seen too many "extremely good looking games" which I couldn't play because of the "extremely high" requirements they had.
I would like to try it eventually on both my computers, a 3-years old workstation (from which I don't expect that much) and a 1-year old laptop (which is actually quite good).

Grafics are really important but a good gameplay will keep the game played ;)

By what i have seen from the screenshots the graphic looks nice so far. But Boulway is right gameplay is more important. I hope to get a hand on a beta account to check this out :)

With that said, we've never claimed to have the best graphics. When you have 1,000+ units battling, performance is more important than graphics, at least how we see it.

This is the greatest sentence I have ever seen from a game representative. I would rather have graphics from 8 years ago in a game that is a finished product, has a huge living world, runs well on something less than a $3000 gaming machine, and has involving, robust gameplay, instead of new-gen graphics with incomplete features, constant bugs and glitches, and stunted gameplay. So many PC games lately seem to focus so much on graphic quality that they forget to make the game fun as well.

I have a super computer, and I update it constantly. I am always looking for something to push it. I DO want this game to be a pretty as possible. Why cant there be settings like:

Dude who just bought a pc to get into games and didnt spend much
Dude who bought an OEM pc and an extra graphics card
Dude who knows his stuff and built his own
Dude who knows his stuff and build his own but had lots of cash to do so.
etc...

Why can't games scale so that devs don't have to limit themselves.

I have seen the trailers and I love the graphics.They are not top of the league, but present the old fashioned rts style. Unfortunatly we live in the ages where developers forgot how the real rts games look like. This game reminds me the good times for this game genre :).

I had to admit i was a bit concerned about how the games looking visually because from ALL the screenshots from here and from other websites looked very good, but from what i saw in the mays trailer, and from what other people have posted in the other media section forum aswell as the giant thread posting pics on how all the races main bases looked like, the game looked REALLY REALLY low texture low quality graphics compared to what had been seen before. The graphics to me dont have to be stella of course, gameplay is where its at, I still play the original settlers game on the amiga for heaven sake! but if at all possible, would love to see the game represented a bit better quality without the blocky graphics and stuff especially when your zoomed in, but this was already answered by the designers on the very first page, their still working heavily on this stuff, and stuff is already being re-done completely, i haveno doubt it'll look absoutely stunning when its finally finished, but i do hope its not put on the back burner though as this universe could be one of the best looking universes in RTS in a very long time if done right .....

ps. If anyones got some HD quality screenshots i'd love to see them, could barely find any screenies from the beta's, was mainly just offical screenshots only in the media sections of the forums.
