But it is true. N64 had a castrated texture memory and could either have a lower amount of textures with high resolution or more textures with lower resolution, but never the same amount with the same res as another port.

But it isn't true. N64 could use tiling to wonderful effect, when properly utilized the N64 hardware could produce much better textures than either PS1 or Saturn, just look at the OP photo (which is not an emulator, by the way).

Absolute bullshit. The N64 version is far more faithful, a few missing levels and addition of colored lighting aside. Much of the geometry in the Saturn version had to be severely stripped down to account for vastly weaker hardware. Dynamic lighting is about the only thing it had going for it, and even then, that's a small consolation for smaller, simpler levels and mudwater graphics.

The Saturn version is missing all of the secret levels like Ziggurat Vertigo and only has a few more levels than the N64 version does. Not to mention, it's missing about half of the original geometry, so I'd say it evens out lmao.

Lemme get this straight out there from somebody who doesn't feel like they have a horse in this race.

Saturn Quake is an absolutely amazing technical achievement. People were long saying on forums that a game with Quake's polygonal complexity could never run on the Saturn or even the PS1. Yet they were proved wrong.

The port was made by Ezra Dreisbach who is basically a Carmack-tier coder, but who has experienced horrible career luck his whole life. The attention to detail in Quake Saturn is phenomenal and he even added really sweet colored lighting. THAT BEING SAID: Quake Saturn is what it is - a miracle port. The resolution is really low and murky, and the framerate is such that makes your average N64 Rare game look silky smooth.

Quake N64 on the other hand is a bloody rushed port made by a developer who either didn't care or didn't have much time to refine it. It's sloppy. It feels sloppy. They didn't even bother to make the light switches work in the fucking first level. That being said, because the N64 is like 3x faster at 3D than the Saturn, it's still the more playable version simply through the N64's sheer brute force. Sure some of the textures look like trash, but the game doesn't have such a drab appearance and the framerate is literally 2-3x higher.

So there you have it: a miracle port on weak hardware vs a sloppy port on strong hardware. Pick your poison. Or just play PC?

>> No.4499269

No, you won't show me because they don't exist. Like I just said, there's a few small areas where there is some bright colored lighting, that's it.

>> No.4499272

>It's sloppy. It feels sloppy. They didn't even bother to make the light switches work in the fucking first level.
>console port doesn't have a small feature that a PC game had, therefore it's a "rushed" and "sloppy" port
Quake 64 definitely could have used more TLC but it's not a sloppy port, it's actually quite impressive. A fully 3D game with a physics engine running at near-60fps with no texture warping is every bit as much of an achievement as the pathetic Saturn port. You would have needed a $1500 PC to display graphics like that found in Quake 64 at the time. Regardless of the Saturn version being an achievement, it doesn't change the fact that, taken on its own merits, it's a piece of shit. Quake 64 is actually playable, smooth, and fun.

It's sloppy because the N64 has almost as much power as a Pentium 75 with 3dfx Voodoo (more power in some departments), yet Quake 64 doesn't look or run as well as Quake on a PC with those specifications.

Yes, I know the N64 has like half the memory bandwidth of that configuration, so they couldn't get it running at 640x480. But it should have run at 640x240 at 30 FPS with same texture detail Literally no fucking excuse. And yes, I am aware that Quake on the Voodoo 1 had worse textures in some places than software mode due to some issue with OpenGL. N64's textures should have been that level at least.

Because playing a twitch shooter, with digital inputs, at 15 fps SUCKS. Quake is not fun on the Saturn and is really, really, really bad compared to a Pentium PC in software mode.

Going to interrupt this retarded conversation to comment on this "fake 3d" meme. 3d means there are 3 dimensions. It doesn't matter how it is rendered. Hard Drivin' is 3d.

Not being it isn't "real 3d". It is.

>> No.4499371

The N64's GPU can't draw textures straight out of the RAM, it has to copy them first to the 4 KB texture cache. Meaning each texture can't be bigger than 4 KB.

PS1 doesn't have that issue. It can texture either out of VRAM or out of 2 KB texture cache.

Why is it like that? Cause N64 has only one memory channel due to Nintendo being Scrooge McDucks. Cause of that every time RAM is accessed no other component can access it during that period (think of one-lane highway). If GPU textured straight from main RAM the whole system would then constantly grind to a halt, so Nintendo/SGI forced texturing from texture cache to prevent that. It's also due to the way texture filtering works, cause filtering requires 4x the RAM access of no-filter. So not filtering from cache is impractical.

I mean, they made some decent games here and there, but by and large they were a clusterfuck of a company. The Genesis was the only legitimately good console they ever made, and even then it was riddled with underdeveloped ideas and the like. Nintendo has always been the one company that creates consoles that are built like a rock and brimming with games of the highest quality. Granted, post-GameCube Nintendo has been pretty shit, but classic Nintendo is amazing.

>> No.4499391

In practice the N64 texture limit is about 64x64 at 8-bit color (you can go higher res if you have grey-scale textures, Goldeneye did this). I think the limit on PS1 for individual textures is 256x256 at 8-bit color (66 KB), so it's not like you could draw a texture as big as a whole 1 MB.

On N64 you can just refresh the 4 KB texture cache many times per frame. So if you wanted a 256x256 texture you would just divide up that texture into 64x64 chunks and load each piece into the texture cache for a total of 16 refreshes.

Now cause the N64 has that single memory channel, it's really hard to keep refreshing the texture cache for bigger textures without taking a big dump on system performance, so not many developers did it. Pretty much only Rare and a few others.

Disk format doesn't really limit PS1 so much, except that there's a massive access latency so you can't stream new data in so easily. That's why there's usually load times for every new area. Games like Soul Reaver got around that by having loading corridors.

Oh, plenty. How about the countless, worthless Genesis addons? Or the Saturn with its cobbled-together clusterfuck of chips? Sega is literally "Underdeveloped Ideas: The Company". The bulk majority of their products were rushed to market and given very little thought. You can blame this on a billion different things, most angst-ridden Sega drones like to talk ad nauseum about "SEGA OF AMERICA AND SEGA OF JAPAN HAVING CONFLICTING IDEAS", but at the end of the day, the end result were poorly implemented ideas and products that slowly widdled away at Sega until they were a hollow husk.

Now that's a laugh. Oh yeah, all those FMV games were fucking great. The Genesis looked like a heaping hunk of diarrhea with all of those things poking out, each with their own power supply no less. What a fucking terrible design. That's not even counting stuff like the Mega-CD. Then on top of that, you've got all the model variants, even that retarded Pioneer system that played Genesis games. Sega was constantly dumping money into all of this bullshit just to stay "new" and "relevant", meanwhile the SNES was absolutely blowing it the fuck out of the water -- and this is coming from someone who actually preferred the Genesis.

>> No.4499415

Dreamcast at least was Sega's most competent hardware ever. That PowerVR 2 chip was god-tier.

Genesis was pretty good hardware but it was flawed too. Sega made add-on support less than optimal, fucked up the sound chip's PCM timer (which is why so many Genesis games have crackly voices) and traded having more colors for MS support. Still, overall it was a fine effort, and gave the 2 years newer SNES a run for its money on several occasions.

>> No.4499416

That's just it. The games were scattered. Even with consoles like N64 and Gamecube, which many (though not myself) would argue had comparatively few good games, every Nintendo console has always had a slew of defining classics. Sega almost never had that. The Genesis did to an extent, but that's about it. Even the Dreamcast had a pretty pathetic library all said and done. You shouldn't have to purchase a bunch of bizarre addons and 4 different consoles just to get a few dozen decent games.

>> No.4499418

Typical autistic logic. I never said Sega never had good games, just that they often didn't know what they were doing and that their good games paled in number to Nintendo's offerings. The very fact I've owned everything from the Master System to the Dreamcast is why I'm appropriately prepared to speak on how shitty their respective libraries are.
>de facto non-argument
No, I'm just not enough of a retard to either A) waste money on a heap of decaying plastic consoles that I don't care too much about, or B) emulate and get an inferior experience. I'd rather devote my time and money to actually playing good games on fewer, better consoles.

>> No.4499426

Model variants are common. You only notice it because Sega changed the exterior shell more than is usual.

Also you are aware that the Mega-CD IS the Sega-CD, right?

The rest of your post is retarded. The SNES, at no point when Sega was selling the Genesis as its premier console, was "blowing it the fuck out".

Lmao, imagine being this delusional. The SNES was literally still outselling the fucking Saturn despite it being a next gen console, how's that for competition? The Sega Genesis sold roughly 30m units total, the SNES sold almost double that. Sorry, it got blown the fuck out.

It actually sold around 40m. Nobody knows the exact figure, since the only official number ever provided by Sega was 30m in November 1994 or some shit. They outsold Nintendo in Christmas 1994 btw, so you can bet that number grew by a lot before the Genesis was discontinued.

So there was about a 9 million difference between Genesis and SNES. SNES outsold the Genesis (Mega Drive) by something like 13 million in Japan. I'm sure it doesn't take a genius to do the maths and work out what that means. it outsold SNES globally if you exclude glorious nippon.

As I said, it's all speculation. We know it has to be at least 30m. But in reality it's gotta be a lot more than that, unless you literally believe Genesis stopped dead selling in November 1994? (even though they outsold Nintendo that Christmas)

Not sure why you need me to spoon feed you. Google "Sega Genesis", then "Super Nintendo", look at each Wikipedia article, roughly 50m for Nintendo and 30m for Sega. Now show me where they outsold Nintendo in 1994 and sold 40m units.

Nobody is denying SNES outsold Genesis globally my friend. Sega knew that, and that's probably why they didn't confirm the final figures. But we know where the 30m number comes from. November 1994.

Revenue is a pretty good indicator actually, since it's pure sales (doesn't factor actual profit or anything). Both consoles had a similar price on the market.

Anti-aliasing =/= bilinear filter on N64 (though technically texture filtering is a type of anti-aliasing, that is not what it means in the context of N64). N64 uses an edge AA algorithm which is not bilinear filtering.

Also bilinear filtering is not "shitty", it's still the standard form of filtering even on modern cards/games. Anisotropic filtering is just an extension on bilinear filtering that takes into account the texture's angle in respect of the game camera.
