Terodemmah Posted January 31, 2014 Share Posted January 31, 2014 Yeah, MMX is an optimized piece of garbage. I'm on a SSD, high-end processor/gpu with plenty of memory -- load times are playstation 1 levels and the game stutters like crazy in certain places like the forest. Despite all of that I put in like 8 hours and enjoyed it ok despite the awful, senseless skill balance. Going to wait for modders to fix/balance the game before picking it back up Seems like the problem with MMX is a bad case of over-ambitious developers going totally crazy. From the forum on Steam I've read that they basically overdid it with their graphics. Number of shadows in shops are extreme making it a laggy experience to go in shops. They used something like 1200 high poly assets for a simple floor-tile which is insane (just passing that knowledge. I'm such a noob when it comes to programming, I basically can't say wheter that's too much or not but from reading the Steam forum it's definetly not the best decision by the dev's). Looks like they made a game that would look great if all scenes were static and basic screenshots but doesn't work in actual gameplay. The memory leaks caused by that terrible programming are reported to be mind-numbingly extreme. As far as I remember some of the problems with Shadowrun Returns' audio stuttering were caused by Unitys problem with hyperthreading. I hope that it's something that has been solved by the latest version of Unity. As for waiting for a modder to save the MMX game I wish you good luck. It's 1500 bucks to buy the Unity program to do the modding needed but with the problems it seems it needs to basically be completely redesigned. Something tells me Limbic won't be doing another M&M game in the near future (if ever). As Scorpio stated I'm also putting my faith in this crew to make a truly remarkable crpg as they've shown time and again that they are capable of. But I still can't help wishing that they had built their own engine for it which would've been handy in future releases as well. I know it's expensive and timeconsuming but it would be so nice to see a new reboot of the Infinity Engine (there I go again...dreaming). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
