Fortunately, his father agreed and McGee speculates he would have been killed or molested otherwise. Shortly afterwards, his father crashed into a telephone pole.

Software mode would have worked if they weren't porting the Playstation version. Saturn is much more powerful than the 32x, and could easily handle the PC's low-detail mode at 30 fps, but with all the colors and levels, unlike the 32x version.

>> No.6265252

I started typing this up and realized this doesn't actually really have anything to do with your post, but I'll just leave this tism musing here anyway.

>The PSX versions (as well as the 32X, N64, 3DO, and the first GBA one) has its base in the Jaguar version, which runs well, but has some limits in what you can really do with it.
>Things like resurrecting dead monsters and spawning new ones isn't practically doable, so you can't have real Nightmare! mode, the Icon Of Sin, or the Arch-Vile. With some creative solutions you could probably make some workarounds.

>For instance the Motherdemon has her minions already in place in the map and they funnel in, possibly the Archie could be rigged up to work on a similar principle, having a small cache of minions in a space outside the map (a couple of imps, pinkies, and lost souls), and the Archie just calls in one of them randomly instead of resurrecting dead monsters. To prevent you from having a gimped killcount the designated monsters can be tagged to not count for it. Depending on map, maybe he has a chance to call in a Revenant, Caco, or Hellknight, depending on what you put in his "buffer" sector, difficulty, etc. Similarly for the Icon Of Sin.
>The Archie has a lot of frames though, depending on storage media (disc or cartridges), you might need to cut a bunch of his rotations to make him fit, optionally maybe go for a bigger cartridge or a double disc game or something, but convince the publisher of that.

>> No.6265267

>>6265252
What I was trying to say, possibly poorly, is that if you took the Jag or 32x version, and stuck it on Saturn (but with full colors, actual music, and all the levels), it would have run great on Saturn.

Taking the PSX version and sticking it on Saturn with software rendering is a fucking disaster, because Saturn's single core performance is like 50% of PSX.

They're interesting, he probably appreciated the hacking challenge of the Jaguar, because it's such a boulderdash of a system.

The guy grew up hacking computer games and shit, it was probably really fun for him to toy around with that weird thing, and I figure his affinity for hacking is why he figured out how to get such good performance out of the machine, which a lot of other devs struggled with. The Jaguar is pretty powerful if you can figure the thing out, but if you don't, you're probably looking at a game which could just as well have been on a SNES or Genesis.
