    They are redoing the graphics but not tweaking the engine for better performance. This is going to be Tony the tiger great.

    What a lot of people are failing to realize thang BDO is not a finished product, not even close. It is impossible to fully imagine just how far can be expanded.

    So long as the developers commit to continuous updates and improvements, ever pushing forward whille reaching back to catch up what was left behind, I shall personally continue to enjoy the Journey.

    I'm looking forward to this, although I may have to look forward to a new gfx card too lol

    BDO graphics where never the problem, in fact its still the best looking mmorpg out there.
    ATM bdo problems are a lack in meaningful content, class imbalance and other stuff ( very slow enchanting after softcap, renown system).

    They should get their priority's straight before a better mmorpg in the future curb stomps bdo.

    i was referring to.BDO as a whole.

    I do agree that there are many quirks that need to be hashed out, but I'm confidebt they will continue to tweak and make modifications as appropriate.

    Whether they do so based on what players want, or whether they do so on a timescale that is sufficient to retain disgruntled players that are or have lost "hope", is another matter, I won't delve into.

    Also, the MMO genre itself has been played out over the past decade. Its lost its limelight. I seriously doubt there will be any real major competitor of BDO that doesn't have its own quirks and community set backs as we have, do, and will continue to have, not even Amazons SID title.

    The next "big thing" is in VRMMO and were still a ways away from anything of seriously substantial.

    only XIV seems to have any competing numbers, alot of people who are AFKing in BDO, tends to play XIV or WoW at the same time. But XIV has its own problems, spite it has a wealth of all kinds of content to do, its following the stale WoW formula, it has stunted vertical progression character growth, and its GMs are the most Draconian I ever seen in any mmo, made up of Privileged Upper Middle Class Californian fresh out of highschool kids who are GMing just to get into the Gaming industry thru Square Enix, and are placed on a per month quota of handing suspensions and bans via finding bots, or simply cherry picking on innocent players or generally dealing out punishments that dont anywhere near fit the crime, like saying one bad swear word, or making one bad joke.

    Its gotten so bad that no one really shouts in zones anymore, nor would anyone argue in Public groups about bad dps, or you suck at this or your **** at that, cuz all it takes is one insult, or one "Toxic" line, and the offendee or anyone really just has to report you and state how you hurt his precious wittle feelings and the GMs will suspend you, without question, without warning.

    And if you accumulate 3 of these suspensions over time, doesnt matter if you gotten them over a year or 7 years, *seen players who played and sunk over 20000 hours into the game, get a final suspension then perma banned...* they will just perma ban you. They dont care how much of a paying customer you are or how long you played and put time into the game. You could be one of few players with ultra rare titles that took alot of time, agony and pain to get, they will not give a ****. They wont give a **** even if all 3 infractions were completely minor, or outright ridiculous.

    BDO, if it didnt have graphics and its combat style, woulda died a long time ago, but their is no real competition for it concerning graphics and combat system. But honestly, if they dont do something about the balancing issues, PVP issues, RNG issues, lack of any real PVE content issues, then something will eventually come, and put this game in its grave. Likely wont be for a few years though.

    its been a WHILE now since they spoke about their "graphic enhancement" made by the company i forgot the name, and yeah that's "only filter". its not a in depth rework of their black desert engine.
    Like, for exemple, rework volumetric light, or add somes others AA tech, or whatever else.
    Its a "add on top"

    As for the HDRI, i've seen nothing official about that, and even if that true, you would need a special monitor, since not all would be able to. so EVEN MORE whatever.

    Listen to the battle music while cleaning. I might just be well trained but it makes cleaning fun!

    I solemnly swear I have never pretended my Swiffer was a lance

    Speaking of FFXIV, discord recently unpartnered their Reddit and discord for childporn, and their community is defending their kid-diddlin' ways.

    I am actually quite pleased with Discord on their firm stance against this subject matter, and their open-ness about their views on shaping their service.

    Let it not turn into AOL &Yahoo(custom user room era) chat.

    I love how the FFXIV community is acting like they DIDN'T know that discord didn't allow CP of any form on their platform, like... bruh, really?
    One of the comments: "Discord didn't specifically say that cartoon cp wasn't allowed."

    Like, they're (formerly) partnered and act like they didn't understand Discord's rules.

    No you wouldn't need a special monitor, Internally you cant apply correct bloom and glare to 8 bit data. It means the data will be 32 bit moving forward allowing for such effects. If you did all you would get is crushed whites and messed up shading. Go ahead and try to add exposure to a 8 bit image vs a 32 bit hdr format. I will wait. Download something like gemfx and try to tonemap BDO in its current state.

    And it's not just filters you can clearly see they changed reflections and everything else to reflect surroundings. Once more info comes out I will be sure to give you the good old told you so line.

    https://www.invenglobal.com/article...t-festa-new-region-dreagan-neater-ui-and-more

    Case in point. Look closely at those images. The street view for instances like 5 images down... you can see how the stone road went from diffuse and flat to having new normals and reflection added. you can also see the glass on the building now has refraction/reflection added and is reflecting the surroundings. Same with the weapons near a vendor hut they went from being diffuse and flat to having reflections and depth.

    You are clearly ignorant of the subject. Please don't reply.

    Will this increase the minimum system requirements to go even higher?

    That would be quite bad.

    Still just a bunch of filter like i said, and like we all know that since a freaking while now.
    Just too lazy, but search for the company bringing thoses stuff, thoses guys dont rework the engine, that's "their" software solution.

    its "like" a reshade, but more advanced.

    Anyway, still dont really change the point of my original answer tho.
