Discussion in '2006 FIFA World Cup Forum' started by esteghlal f.c, Mar 8, 2006.
yeah i remember them doing that sort of thing in the 2002 world cup game.
This version will be better but, enhanced graphics, more teams (qualifying !!!) Classic & FWC.com mode, continental & finals stads, player likenesses the works. Let's hope for the best
BTW: Where is this game's own forum/site?
no idea shoujld be up soon hopefully with some vids and even a demo perhaps
Here are lots of screenshots for all platforms
hahahaha ... EA is so ridiculous ... they built a stadium looking like FIFA 2002 or so ... they forget half or the stadium.
You want proof? Here:
- the roof is disconnected
- the tower on the left is missing
- the benches are on the wrong side
- the roof is too low
but now, the other side ... even better
- the complete new stand is missing !!!
- the tower on the right is missing
- the floodlight towers have gone years ago
This is embarassing, EA, really. No excuse for that ... what did you do with my living room ^^
I have the same wish as yours.
Doubt it EA will do that thing.
THEY EVEN MISSED THE RAINBOW!!! not buying this game now, they try to make a stadium that has a rainbow going straight oiver the bloody thing and its no there, not impressed ea!!! lol cant expect them to have everything in, its understandable that the new parts of the stadium are in but it still has most of the stuff there so dont be too displeased m8
I think in a game that claims to have "all 12 official and original Worldcup stadiums" you can expect that.
The model of the stadium is now about 6 years (!!) old and known. The status of the stadium which is in the game is the one of more than two years ago - and I'm sure they didn't start building the stadium then.
The stadium is finished half a year now, and the construction of the last stand has been completely obvious for 1,5 years! They just should have taken a look on the webcams, for example, to see what's going on there.
Anyway, probably I'm quite upset because it's "my" home stadium where I am every second weekend ... I think you can understand it better then
And, second anyway, I'm building my own Fritz-Walter-Stadion and I hope ECP will be able to release a patch replacing the stadiums with new, better ones ^^
At least this new stadium will look original then
Hey Schwenker, then you might fall off your seat when you read the first developer diary EA published yesterday... here it is:
Developer Diary - Stadiums
What were main focuses for your design?
The great thing about the FIFA World Cup is the fact that it always brings new stadiums that are built for the event.
The first thing we had to do was make sure we had all the reference material possible to build them accurately and efficiently. In addition to acquiring footage from our licensed partners, we sent photographers out to take photos of each stadium.
In many cases we took hundreds of photos to get absolutely accurate reference ranging from the way rafters look and the lighting standards on the pitch through to images of the bolts and hinges on the seats.
FIFA also gave us reference of how the graphics, such as the hoardings, and colours would be used in each stadium, so when people play the game, it will be accurate to the real event.
Also, as this is the FIFA World Cup and the biggest celebration of football every four years, we wanted to ensure we captured the festival atmosphere and ensuring our new 3D crowd to look and behave like the real thing. Fans throw streamers and confetti, as well as holding up giant flags in the crowd.
What were the challenges?
When you put a lot of detail into things like the players, their kits, and the pitch they play on - that doesn't leave a lot of room for things like balloons, fireworks, confetti, streamer, and flags.
We had to build our stadiums in a way that the best parts of the geometry were shown in gameplay cameras. That means putting less detail in the last row of the upper tier of seats, as opposed to the lower level seats, and paying attention to things like staff and photographers seen standing around the perimeter of the pitch.
When you're dealing with a video game, you've only got so much display memory that you can use at one time - so we had to re-think where to put the details in stadium. The end result is a great looking stadium, with lots of effects and a party atmosphere.
What technical tricks did you employ?
Aside from putting less polygons and detail in to the areas you don't see a lot in gameplay, we also worked on a new lighting engine for the game. We have day, night and dusk lighting conditions, with dusk being the most dramatic.
The sun will shine through the stadium gaps and cast accurately coloured shadows on both the pitch and the crowd. Even the flags hanging in the rafters cast coloured shadows on the crowd as our artificial sun shines through them. We also used depth of field to help focus on key areas of the stadium when viewing gameplay and the cut-scenes. This way we focus the gamers’ attention on the things that look best in each situation. Even our goal net has new physics applied, so each shot into the net will look more accurate than before.
"In many cases we took hundreds of photos to get absolutely accurate reference ranging from the way rafters look and the lighting standards on the pitch through to images of the bolts and hinges on the seats." ... after seeing your comparision, this sounds kind of funny
If they did so much effort, the yield is really low ... ^^
The other stadiums aren't really outstanding either
At least we have 3D-Crowd Will probably make FIFA run slow on many PCs ... but I think it's ok.
I really hope we can convert our stadiums for this game. I really wanna see them with 3D crowd
i so hope they have made the cut scenes longer so it gives better atmosphere
Both your points are valid - while it is poor that they messed up the stadium, they can't be expected to make a perfect game. What would they sell us afterwards?
will this game be online?
What's up with this ******* 360-machine? Isn't this supposed to be the "next-gen"?? The screens looks so blured and they hardly looks antialiased!
I thinks this screens are from ps2 and PC...
On x360 fifaWC looks much better....
http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/748/748507/vids_1.html -->VIDEOS from fifa WC2k6 on x360...
Those are RTWC vids, not FIFA World Cup 2006 vids.
Yeah well, that kinda bothers me even more. I know this game isn't supposed to be released for another 2 months or so but, they have the engine in place allready. I mean, the direct-feed RTWC screens looks much better ..
i disagree - i thouht the rtwc engine was really really shabby. to much frame skipping and jerkeyness. the new fifa wc, altough not as superior grpahics wise, looks as if it could be more playable.
I think when KONAMI make new version Pro Evolution Soccer for x360 and PS3
FIFA will go out...
the best thing konami could do is sell the series to ea imo
