blitzkriegomega: I mucked about with Wayback Machine and salvaged a LOT of Revo-Ramas. I posted a download link on the Revoltech Thread. Apr 16, 2019 19:40:51 GMT -5
S_Gokin: the new PS5 will be epic :-* Apr 17, 2019 1:46:26 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): I just hope the architecture is better and doesn't have the inherent input delay. I'd love to get back into console fighters. Fingers crossed. Apr 17, 2019 14:23:14 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: input delay in modern consoles is likely your TV, not the system. though using a wireless controller will always have slight input delay. Apr 17, 2019 16:02:49 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): No, the architecture of Ps4 does not work well with the unreal 4 engine and gives ports to that console a significant increase in input delay as opposed to other consoles. I own them all. Apr 17, 2019 18:12:12 GMT -5
S_Gokin: actually blitzkriegomega have a point, the TV and the DS4 play a key rule in the input delay specially with games that use the unreal engine, but that was long ago now every thing is much much smoother, i will create a thread so we can talk with no limit Apr 19, 2019 8:12:05 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): No, what I said was factual. I actually have done the majority of my gaming on plasma for the purpose of not having the input delay of LCD/LED/whatever. What I wrote about the PS4 was easily verifiable by just looking it up. Apr 19, 2019 14:41:08 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): www.neogaf.com/threads/namco-on-tekken-7s-input-lag-unreal-engine-4-eats-3-4-frames.1401223/ Apr 19, 2019 14:43:38 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: I ain't saying you're wrong. it's a LOT of things that stack up to an insufferable amount of input lag. like. I have to use a small TV in my bedroom because my Living Room's bigger TV of a different brand is like "Haha I hope you enjoy half a second delay! Apr 19, 2019 18:15:35 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: Anyway, time for Blitz's Shower thoughts Has Mecha Tekkouki ever had a toy? he seems like the perfect candidate for a Dynamite Action to pair up with the Getter Dragon. also, with those Dynamic Change Getter toys...how come Getter Go and Neo Getter- Apr 19, 2019 18:17:21 GMT -5
blitzkriegomega: -have not been announced yet? you'd think the getters that were designed to be "No-Nonsense" combining jets would be an instant target for that combining jets gimmick... Apr 19, 2019 18:18:10 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): What I stated does not negate other factors but highlights one that's inherent on the ps4 that gives it increased delay compared to other platforms in same conditions no matter what. Apr 19, 2019 18:23:13 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): So stating general things like, "Some TVs have more input delay than others" doesn't really have anything to do with the point stated (albeit true.) Apr 19, 2019 18:25:10 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Ref toys; combined my orders of Figuarts Broly and Gogeta with Riobot Grendizer to hopefully save on shipping but left MB Great Maz separately since it doesn't seem to be releasing just yet Apr 19, 2019 18:26:28 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): This is a heavy end of month, though. Really need to look over preorders for the upcoming months and decide what I really want. Apr 19, 2019 18:27:12 GMT -5
S_Gokin: @kumastyle.com im not saying you are wrong, but that tweet is almost 2 years old, im not sure when is the last time you played tekken on ps4 but i assure you its alot smoother than you think, alot of patches from both sides made it way better Apr 20, 2019 10:00:30 GMT -5
S_Gokin: also if you are using a ps4 pro it will be even better, even if you are playing without turning the game mode on (which i never do since it make the graphics looks a bit dark and washed out in the same time lol Apr 20, 2019 10:03:03 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): _Gokin I believe it was patched to be better but still not quite as good as the other ports. Honestly, I've played on PC as well since the beginning and have just stuck with that since it's the most optimal one. Last time I played on PS4 was at C2E2 Apr 20, 2019 19:01:24 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): A few weekends ago and it did play MUCH better. And again, when I console game on Plasma which has 0 ms delay. I agree on the game mode, though... I saw it when cycling through the settings of my 4k or w/e and wondered why the hell it looked green? Apr 20, 2019 19:02:45 GMT -5
S_Gokin: the game mode is odd thing honestly, it supposed to help boosting the performance and the frames of the game, but it reduces the graphics, which kills the idea of having a 4k TV with HDR, hopefully with HDMI 2.1 all of these issues will be fix Apr 21, 2019 11:01:49 GMT -5
