OOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH We've been working our asses off today (^_^)
And it isn't over yet kiddie, yes that's right we've got the order - we have 2 weeks to include FULL GeForce FX support... and what have been been given as an incentive?
GeForce FX 680 1.2Ghz 256Mbyte DDR2 AGP8x Cards!!!
In 64bit and 128bit Colour mode, try to touch the graphics as it outperforms ANYTHING you have EVER SEEN!
There are the top of the line puppies, and oh yes we're gonna be putting them to the absolute MAX of thier potencial with C&C Generals!

Oh and for those who haven't seen what it looks like with only standard GeForce4 Ti's ... i've taken the liberty of nabbing a few pics that i've been told nVidia have been given with the mention that we've already implimented the tech.

For some reason we're still now allowed to show the new Ops system, but i think that makes it even more fun
So i've turned it off, or rather 100% alpha'd - this is from a set battle scene demo we're running sims on so, someone lemme know how close to the nVidia ones it is (^_^) because from what i know there shouldn't be much difference if any. supposidely the same game point it screenshots so the pixel artists can fine detail certain aspects better, but oftenly code buggers up









(^_^) wargames have never been so much fun!

The actual ingame action won't quite be that sweet without a pretty good system unfortunatly ...
those were taken on a
Pentium4 1.33Ghz | GeForce 4 Ti 4200 128Mb | 256Mb Ram

I know ALOT here much more powerful systems than that and that is at max graphics - but wait until the GeForce FX screenshots

8-0, I opened this thread and I thought these were pics from Iraq! Maybe I should consider a system upgrade just to be able to play this game! (and to get a framerate higher than 5fps out of my progs , and to speed my internet up and...)

Whatever I did I didn't do it!

SO WHAT BIT DID YOU ACTUALLY DO ?? apart from copy the screenies straight from nVidia's website and post them here as your work.

screenies are probably close to or identical to nVidias for the reasons i've already noted, please read posts before throwing accusations of such a nature ... they're also now on gamespot and within PCGUS this month, along with another 8 which i'm not allowed to show because they're exclusive.

They're all render'd here first from one of the machines within this teams room hehee

(^_^) you can just sit an wonder what part i've done, one or two members already know. Not posted here for obvious reasons and upon recommendations not to.

The will be getting to work on some of the shader effects that just can't be veiwed from screenshots, like the water sparkles (the new light shaders) and point battle damage. The time shaders make the building damage for standard cards just look silly

He is/was ShadowRobert but really what does it matter, I don't think he would deny that...

What's your point anyways Simple...This seems like you guys will never get along ,I mean,stop the grudge,both of you whatever you both think of each other.

I think no one really cares and it kinda gets annoying to see that attitude come back in every post you two participate.

My point is >> he claims to work for Westwood Studio's and to be a part of the dev team making C&C Generals. But he don't/and he's not.

As for the grudge thing ... NO not really. Some people are just fed up of him claiming others work as his own. Basically he tries to steal other peoples glory.

And as for the threads we both participate in ..... well, I gave him the opportunity for us both to stay out of each others topics, but he obviously declined.

Who?I never heard anything from any of them,surely if there was to be some solid reasons and especially if they were expressed by an impartial third person,then any doubt could be possible...Personally,I believe in facts.

Well, I don't wanna be at any side, and not either judge RV who has been helpful with some doubts I had. If he's the guy who helped in the dev of C&C Generals, it's a great exemple of all of us starting here that one day we can also be there. If he does not and been stealing peoples glory as mentionade by Simple, that's sad and make many of the newcomers here losing his motivations in making a quality game which won't ever look like those snaps being a lone wolf... That's much to deal with

Actarus,

What would Vegeta be doing right now if Simple had been found out to be making false claims?, think about it - we are talking about Vegeta here. He'd be like a pitbull with a ragdoll, and seeing as how Vegeta spent an entire week hounding Simple because a model he re-did for someone looked a little similar to one in half life, I think Simple has the right to express his opinions about this - probably more than anyone here.

The very fact that Vegeta hasn't posted on this topic in 24 hours speaks volumes, but you just know he'll come in with an elaborate excuse involving fried hard drives and alien abduction.

I have nothing against Vegeta, I don't care too much if he lies about his professional work - but this is a deliberate attempt to deceive us.

I'd like it if Vegeta came here and told us the truth - is that very much to ask?

milkman? mmoki then ... i've been finding my little posts like this all over the place, hehee i wonder how many i made.

i think i understand what i said
basically i think you're a bastard cause you don't know when you've gone too far, and right now you have definately crossed a line.

my name isn't Robert Latten, for one Robert is my second name as I dislike my first name (but i'm always credited with my first) and my last name is Lettan ... i'm also have a different name on my passport because of my parents. So checking my name in credits might help if you knew it

Also might help if that was the actual development team photo, but it isn't - however it is Westwood employee's at which site you figure out and whether i'm in it or not you can also figure out

Lastly hope you are happy about the little hole your digging yourself here, its one thing to try to discredit someone - but there is no need to have gone as far as you have with it ... and i'd suggest you quit soon because you are damaging more than you relise with your digging.

I might be able to stand for it, but there are certain companies that WON'T!

Beware Simple, if he's saying the truth, his company, the West Wood Studios may open an judicial action against you for trying to defame him
Or else u can open a process against him for fake image.
That's the cool in US and UK... u can open an action against anyone for any reason

Firstly, they can't 'cause Westwood isn't anymore (it's EA Pacific) and secondly they won't 'cause saying "I think your not part of the Generals dev-team" is not a crime nor is it defamation.

BTW, You can ask the staff of "planetcnc.com" (eg: StrikerPro@panetcnc.com) how old these pics are and who's on them.

He prefers his second name but is always credited with his first name (err, why this?) and then he happened to have a second surname. Although he modelled for a DB game project (something with "racer") and was credited with Robert Lettan (err, why this?). That's all a bit odd, don't you think? To quote Van: "an elaborate excuse involving fried hard drives and alien abduction".

Well, to clear things up...
I really couldn't care less where RV works, what his profession is (and it's probably a better job than mine- no sarcasm!), or whatever. But claiming to work for EA, posting sort of a dev-diary, showing screenshots of what he and his team have done so far and after all that's a big lie (and that's a crime under certain circumstances)- well that's far too much.

BTW: Not only you can ask those planetcnc guys how those "Generals" developers are called- no, you can ask them how many of them are actually from the UK.

Hmm, I think Simple should actually pipe down for a while. Of you have a right to your own opinion, but not to try and damage Vegeta's (or anyone else's) reputation, for any reason, and especially not with groundless accusations. Its very clear you have a grudge against each other, which is just human, however, instead of flaming all of Vegeta's threads (I count at least 3 attempts btw), or trying to start flame wars, just leave him alone. I havent seen Vegeta make any inflamatory remarks against you unless you started, which points you out as the perpetrator. I dont care what reputation you have, or how good you are at whatever you do, in my opinion you are just ignorant, not to fall back to more agressive (if descriptive) language.
If Vegeta did steal those pics (which I SERIOUSLY doubt), fair play to him, Westwood will strike. However, I think you should stop flaming him, as he has helped a LOT of people, and is still helping, and he is a lot more capable and a lot more down-to-earth than you make him seem.

I will watch in disgust at your further posts.

Whatever I did I didn't do it!
