Devastation MP Demo Fix

By Maarten Goldstein, Mar 21, 2003 9:31pm PST

Arush Entertainment sends along this performance fix for the Devastation multiplayer demo, fixing the extreme frame rate loss and connection lags that people are experiencing. A patch fixing server browser issues, miscellaneous gameplay issues, physics, and other problems will be released in the coming weeks. According to Arush, the performance problems only exist in the demo, and not in the retail version of the game.

  • My guess is that there will be a patch available when this thing hits retail shelves in a couple of weeks, I dont mean to nit-pick, but this shouldnt be the way that it should have to be, seems like the publishers any more care more about the income than any of the playability of the games they release. I noticed ddog seems to be one of the devs, or works close to the devs or something, but here is something to remember, first of all we are gamers, not your dev friends who are going to hold your hand and tell you your game is all-right and all the thousands of voices we have are all wrong. When we see something wrong, we are going to complain about it till we see it is fixed, or atleast addressed, or goes ignored.... I mean hell look at how bad we talk to George Brussard from 3DRealms ;P Dont take everything you see on here personally, its nothing to jump at, hell if anything its something to look at and say "Well this needs to be addressed now, or in a future patch." This is a site dedicated to gamers and gaming news (One of the best if I may add *wipes his nose off*.) and we feel we are free to express our opinion here, just because you are watching doesnt mean we are going to kiss your ass, or any other devs ass...your a developer, yeah we may respect you to a certain degree, because you give us what we love (Games, not teh sex)but we are not the type of people to just sit here and go "MAN THIS GAME IS TEH SHIZZLE" for everything released, hell look at all the gone gold, announcements, reviews and you can see that. Alot of us were just really hyped about the preview that Maarten gave us, and feel when the demo (Of an ALREADY gone gold game) comes out to feel rushed, and unfortunatly incomplete (in my opinion atleast) it was kind of a let down. I still have high hopes for the single player game, but I think I am going to have to see what others think, and let a couple of patchs go through before I even think about buying it. Though I will have to say gg for getting this patch out asap, it atleast feels playable now. </ends stupid rant> Sorry guys.
