In the wake of shitty console ports and unoptimized games being released on PC lately, let's have a thread dedicated to games that are well optimized.

I'll start with this classic.

It's not so much well optimized as it developed for PC and then properly ported to consoles instead of being developed for consoles and then lazily ported to PCs like they all are today.

The only thing either console is better at is that they can use more vram than the average GPU at the moment. Which isn't going to last long.

Really? That'd be a step back, then. Sims 3 had mirrors with 1:1 reflections.

>>
>>265568503
Quite often these older mirrors are done by just making a copy of the room behind the "mirror". There wasn't too much in the terms of physics, so there was barely any object behavior that might not match well.

Currently we have two big types of mirrors in recent games. The one type is water surfaces that don't show anything new, think about oblivion type water reflections. These reflections are all post processing. First you render everything, than you take a part, flip it and put a water filter over it. These are pretty cheap but can't be used in situations where reflection will show you something new. For example these will never show your face or the underside of a bridge from a location where you can't see it.

The other way is to have a second camera from which you render the room again. This is very expensive, you will sometimes find these in smaller areas like toilets. Some examples are portals in portal and fear has some very basic such reflections. For portal, I guess they can get away with doing it in bigger rooms because much of their rooms have relatively simple layouts. There are barely any organic shapes most of the time (many items/rooms are pretty square) so the render time is probably pretty low. Although I am not sure, there is a link to how these things are done in portal but I can't find it now.

Mirrors usually have little to do with optimization of the game. But they can show at least some extra attention from the dev side, even if they aren't used often.

DMC 4 running well is more to do with the fact that every single assett is prebaked and the areas have very little actual detail

>>
>>265570095
>>265570292
What about Portal games? Aren't they basically "enterable" mirrors? What stops devs using similar techniques for other games? The ammount of coding?
I don't even ask for big ones. Just small enough to fit in a bathroom. So many games try to find excuses, why there are no mirrors in bathrooms or anywhere else it's pathetic.
And yet DNF managed to fit one literary in the first minute of the game.

Games do have mirrors. And Portal typically takes place in small rooms so perfectly reflecting shit isn't very difficult. It also helps that Portal (and Source in general) doesn't have anywhere near as much stuff going on as in other games, so "reflecting" all of that isn't difficult because the game doesn't have any of it. Lack of mirrors in bathrooms and other small rooms is laziness and/or engine limitations (like in the new Deus Ex game, I think their engine just wasn't designed to allow real time reflections, though I could be wrong).

Not having good real time reflections in Watch Dogs however is most likely because doing that would tank performance for a game that is already struggling to run (because of poor optimization). Having good quality real time reflections on every building and car in an open world game just isn't feasible at the moment without getting poor performance. The best I've seen is Sleeping Dogs and those reflections look pretty shitty.

It's a combination of advanced lighting, post processing, and other effects making reflecting things in modern games a lot more intensive than in older games, but games that just completely lack reflections even in small rooms is just laziness which might be combined with engine limitations, though it's hard to say whether engine limitations exist.

It's main problem is actually its lighting engine; CDProjekt handled the port and couldn't into engines. On older cards, if you disable the dynamic lighting the speed increases drastically
Gentlemen of the Row also fixes most of the lighting issues. Interiors still take a performance hit though

Netcode still a shit though

Consoles don't run better, devs just make the games with the drivers/settings on the disc.
The game is made FOR the console, then we get the port (in many cases).

Console hardware doesn't do anything better or run anything better, because it just does what the drivers tell it to.

For me the only issues were that the textures didn't load and that the prerendered videos didn't play (also an audio issue that I personally didn't have but I used the fix anyway, most of this is on its PCgamingwiki page). Fixing the textures required hex editing the exe file but I never did figure out how to fix the videos. It seems to be similar to the issue Thief 1 and 2 had with their videos before NewDark. Some codec issue or something. The videos play in WMP though. The port isn't anywhere near as bad as people say, at the very least it's not unplayable and just has some issues that need fixed due to modern hardware.

The game even doesn't seem to have a resolution lock. You just have to set up a custom resolution but it'll go as high as you want as far as I can tell.

For one I don't think PC versions of games often let you go as low as the 360 version of a game would be. Games most likely use a ton of shortcuts in console versions of games too that aren't available on the PC versions.
>>
>>265575771
on a PC, you have the processor and RAM overhead of an OS and the necessity of an all-purpose engine that can run on many different kinds of hardware.
Getting it to run on all hardware is typically a matter of funneling the instructions through a general graphics library such as DirectX or OpenGL, which in turn knows exactly what to send to your video card's drivers which in turn know what to send to the GPU
on console, the game sends info straight to the GPU
>>
>>265576534

Of course this isn't true anymore. Both the Xbone and the PS4 use APIs as well as having OS overhead and stuff. And it doesn't help that they're less powerful in comparison to PC hardware at their launch than the 360 was at its launch.

Nobody wants to make one. And PCs typically are bought for doing other things than playing games. A gaming OS to boot into would be cool if it improved performance but I would still want an OS to do other things on. It would be better if one OS could do both but that would be hard to do without requiring killing all unneeded processes, which would still require everything else to be closed before playing games. Valve's SteamOS is supposed to be doing something similar, being a gaming OS.

Some games allow you to go super low through config tweaks but most modern games really don't. In fact graphics options have gotten less and less useful as time has gone on.

It would require rendering the lighting, shaders, post processing, etc twice for every frame where you're looking at the mirror. That's not cheap. Also it doesn't allow you to scale the resolution of the rendering in the mirror while doing it with a separate camera (I'm not sure where cubemaps come into this but I think they play a part) allows you to do this.

How so? Duplicating geometry means you render all of the shading and lighting in the very same pass. On top of that, you only render it once per screen pixel. While rendering the mirrored view into a new viewport means you render pixels that won't be relevant in the final output

>Also it doesn't allow you to scale the resolution of the rendering in the mirror
Correct, it would be native resolution of the viewport, the best quality you can have.

I'm not a game dev so I'm not 100% sure. Still, if rendering a separate room behind a mirror was the best way of doing things you'd think that it would still be used. Some games still do it (Metro LL for example) but most games use a separate viewport. And being able to scale the resolution does help because perhaps a full quality reflection would be too intensive. They should still have the option though.

Also I think using a separate viewport fixes the character in the mirror not 100% being a correct reflection.

I keep hearing that it was ray tracing but I still don't believe a game in whatever year DN3D came out had ray traced reflections. And if it could be done back then it doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to do today.

Also setting a maximum ray bounce depth (I think Brigade uses 8) would solve the crashing caused by too many reflections.

Well, there are drawbacks to the duplicate geometry method. It only works if the mirror surface is planar, or close to it. Even worse, it only works if the mirror surface does not ever move. Because dynamic level geometry would be a real bitch to handle. Also, duplicate geometry requires a bit of extra game logic, because when the player is in that room, any physics and player movements in the original room must be replicated in the mirrored room. If the physics engine does not account for that, you're in trouble.

>And being able to scale the resolution does help because perhaps a full quality reflection would be too intensive. They should still have the option though.
Just so it's clear: When duplicated geometry is involved, the mirror surface is nothing but a transparent polygon, or a hole. There is NO difference between rendering a cityscape in front of the player, or rendering a room through a mirror.

>fixes the character in the mirror not 100% being a correct reflection.
That ties into the mirrored geometry mentioned above. Most first person games do not have any player geometry, or very little. So it can not be just duplicated in the mirror room. Instead new geometry needs to be added for that "NPC" that reacts to all player input. It would be possible to get a 100% correct reflection if you were to really just duplicate the meshes and hook them up to the same transforms. That needs support from the engine though, which means work for the developer. Meanwhile rendering a mirror through a render target requires no additional work from the engine, because all the work happens in shaders. It's lazier for sure

Well you only have fxaa or msaa unless you downsample. In any case the msaa in the game shouldn't be used. So if you'd rather have aliasing than use fxaa just turn off the msaa. The fxaa in MP3 is pretty good though. It gets rid of more aliasing than the msaa and while it does cause some blurring it's not too bad.

Downsampling works fine but I find that the cutscenes for some reason run pretty badly at higher resolutions than the gameplay does.

>I keep hearing that it was ray tracing but I still don't believe a game in whatever year DN3D came out had ray traced reflections.
It was raycasting. The difference in naming is subtle, but the difference in what actually happens is huge. For raycasting you basically act on a flat 2D map of a level. You do the same ray-into-scenery thing, and reflect it on mirrors. Eventually the mirrored ray may hit a wall. When it does, you compute the distance from camera to that wall. Now here's the trick: That wall that the ray hit, has an upper and lower height declared (floor and ceiling). From the length of the ray and the elevation of floor and ceiling you can compute two points on the screen, which match the ceiling and floor of that segment of wall at that distance. Then you fill the column of pixels in between with the texture of that wall. That is, very simplified, the rayCASTING mechanism that Doom, Duke 3D and many others used. In the worst case you case one ray for each column of pixels on screen. So, 640 rays for a single frame of Duke Nukem 3D. That's not bad at all. Much less math than raytracing.
By the way, because of the column thing I casually mentioned, tilting your head up and down or to the side was extremely limited, since wall segments always had to be perfectly vertical.

GoldSrc is even more impressive if you compare them in retrospect.

Seriously, that shit is legit magic, its one part Carmack, one part Valve, and 10 parts magic.

Valve are kings with optimization and there engine, Portal 2 is fucking god damn amazing.

People dont realize theres A LOT of in map optimization with Source as with most games, but its very prevalent in source.

So you could make the exact same area, 1:1 down the the smallest details, and it would be worse than Valves.

Ideally you would need the source code. It's conceivable that with enough time someone could completely build a game from the bottom up on another platform without having the source code but it would take forever and most likely not 100% replicate the code so it could have some issues and other things different than the version that was trying to be replicated.

The game that that guy ported to PC was a pretty simple 2D game so it probably wasn't as difficult as other games. If you wanted to completely build Dragon's Dogma up from the ground that would be much much more difficult. Most likely possible give enough time while probably not 100% replicating the code but it's not out of the realm of possibility.

lords of shadow is independent story wise. it has some namedropping of noteable npcs from the other games but nothing important really. and last i checked, the first LoS was considered a better game overall. LoS 2 will make you feel with the soundtrack and the castle though

story in both games is pretty shitty. to top it off, LoS 2 is based on the dlc ending in LoS 1, where gabriel earns his demonic powers which make him dracula etc.

Im almost positive the actual tech behind Portal and its portal optimization are locked down and secret.

But there are these

https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Areaportal

Portals are based off that tech in Source to an extent, theres some other really fucking insane shit you can do with Areaportals

Also remember how in those SUPER detailed parts in Portal 2 you always had to use your portal in specific places?

That was a cute little trick to avoid people finding spots in those areas where a portal would lag like ass.

Portal 1 and 2 are super simple, and portal 2 doesnt let you make portals everywhere in those super detailed areas.

Also its based off existing technology in Source , Valve is godly at optimization, and was the FOCUS OF THE ENTIRE GAME.

When something like that is the full on focus then yes, it better be optimized and work.

Sounds like he figured out how the container files worked (stuff that holds information or whatever) and was able to code stuff that would decompile them, edited the code to make them more friendly to Windows, then recompiled them.

>>265583720

to break it down to an extremely simplistic view, games exist in 3 big portions
you have the graphical/audio resources (whose function is obvious), the behavior code resources (which control events and gameplay), and the engine

the engine is built to interpret the behavior code and feed the graphical/audio resources to the target hardware in such a way that that hardware can interpret it correctly
when porting, you rewrite the engine so that it can be read by and feed data to the new target hardware. Sometimes this doesn't go so well

Really? Where is it at I really wanna read that.

I was saying that because you cannot make a standalone mod of portal 1 and portal 2(you cannot do the create a mod thing in the tools as you can for others)

You instead have to be creative and generally are locked down to mapping and some third party stuff you can do. But you dont have nearly the control you would if you could do the standalone mod shit. Thats why I figured the tech behind it was so locked down, they dont even give it to you so you can fuck around with it. L4D falls in the same category, you cannot use it as a base for a mod(as in actually control the stuff like the Director AI and etc...)

Instead it once again comes to a makeover with maps/textures/models/etc... but never able to really mod it.

It greatly depends on the platforms being ported from and to. Usually the source code is what they will start with, and optimise from there. If you read some of the interviews with Naughty Dog about porting TLOU to PS4, turns out they had to do a lot of work just to get it running.

I don't get. Shouldn't optimization be number 1 priority for big publishers when making a PC game? People with high-end cards are very few. By optimizing your games, you're making sure the potential consumer base multiplies by a vast margin.Then why are big publishers the absolute worst when it comes to optimization? It seems so detrimental to their own business. Yet indie devs like those that made Vanishing of Ethan Carter are doing a hell of a nice job actually making sure their games are playable on a wide range of machines.

You can either use extra performance to add more things the game can do or you can take it up with poor optimization. Guess which one takes less effort?

I don't think some of you PC users realize just how powerful current-gen is. When consoles are twice as powerful as equal PC hardware, they are very close to high-end PCs. With cloud for Xbone and further optimization for PS4, consoles will be at an equal level as high PCs for the next 3-4 years, minimum.

The real test I guess will be The Witcher 3. If the PC version looks years ahead of PS4, then we'll see.

Lately it's seeming that a lot of games need as much money as they can get and so PC is helping a bit. It's still retarded to use that double standard that we won't actually make use of high end PC hardware because lower end cards need to run the game too while doing the exact same thing with poor optimization so lower end cards can't run the game.
