Are there any actually impressive 3D Saturn games? To me they mostly look a step above SNES Starfox, but at best look like an average PSX game.

Because it looks a step above SNES Mode 7 and less like true 3D rendered graphics. Doesn't help the main character is a sprite. The level of pixelation and wobbly polygons is also always present, which is why I liken the most impressive Saturn 3D to the average PSX. It at least had perspective correction unlike PSX, but Wave Race 64 came out a year earlier and looked a generation newer.

Because you're a complete ignoramus. 3D is "true 3D" if the game engine has a z-axis. There is no other requirement, no specific technique or method of polygon generation necessary. You sound like a zoomer in Comp Sci who just redefines things he doesn't understand arbitrarily.

Both the Saturn's distorted sprites and the PS1's textured triangles only operate in "2D", but anything you can use to represent a 3rd axis makes it 3D.
The reason Saturn's quad's get criticised harder for being "2D" is because pretty much EVERYTHING that you need for 3D is handled weird on Saturn. I mean everything. Every time you try to do something fundamental to polygon rendering you'll butt up against a limitation that makes no sense for a polygon rasteriser but makes more sense for a sprite engine.
That's what makes the Saturn "2D", not because you can't manhandle it into doing 3D, but because it requires manhandling. Meanwhile the PS1 is the other way around, it requires a bit of finessing to render 2D graphics without errors because it was optimised for 3D first.

>> No.6745574

>>6745569
The PS1 doesn't require any extra work for 2D, devs at the time even praised it saying it was the easiest 2D system they ever worked on. It has a specific mode to render 2D elements as 3D flat billboards with no perspective issues, it's a very modern way of doing things. It's definitely different - at the time Saturn was more traditional with dedicated layers and acceleration for each part from sprites to backgrounds, but the PS1 solved the same problem with a slightly different way that was just as easy and more flexible.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYs2O29l0Uk
At the time, your 3D game was expected to have full texture mapping, Gouraud lighting and transparency; but while the Saturn can do all of those things, they each have unfortunate caveats. Very few games put in the effort to work around those limitations, instead tending to just use flat lighting, or mesh transparencies everywhere amongst other things.
Sonic R is also quite impressive and the guy behind most of the tricks explains how it works on the youtubes (though sometimes I think his memory might be slightly off as sometimes it sounds like he's skipping steps in the explanation).

>PS1 3D is the best of the generation

There are so many issues with ps1's 3D its not even funny.
First of all, it doesn't have any 3D hardware. It has a 2d triangle rasterizer and texture mapper. I guess the geometry co processor helps with 3d math, but any cpu can do that.

For a 2d texture mapper, it's fine I suppose. But the rasterizer is petty poor. My rasterizer than runs on a 7MHz 68k does a better job. Where's the subpixel accuracy and fill convention? Surely Ken Kutaragi could have read about that when he was doing research.

Saturn is just as bad (worse in some ways) but since a lot of low poly 3d has square walls, quads work a bit better, as a wall split into two triangles with affine texture mapping makes an obvious diagonal seam, and the lack of subpixel correction makes the two wall halves wobble independently. The saturn was harder to program though and generally couldn't keep up geometry wise. It also had its own insane quirks, used forward texture mapping causing overdraw, which consequently broke transparency, etc.

The n64 had actual 3d hardware, it's too bad they fucked up the texture caching.

PS1 was just the only sane and easy to program console that gen, which is why it succeeded.

>> No.6745769

>>6745753
It's all carefully considered, anon. Yes, they could've used better and more powerful off-the-shelf components for the PS1, but they didn't. They had a target budget for the system and it all worked out in their favor. It's a stroke of genius when you think about it. It's bare bones and all done with then readily available components. It's very easy to get at least some acceptable 3D out of the system.

And most off all: the system was cheap...so damn cheap...and they still got filthy rich from selling it.

Yeah it gets all the important things right in a 3D game, massive fog walls that limit your view distance to 15 feet, indiscernible models that blend in with the muddy textures, and most important for gaming, a blazing fast framerate of 20 on a good day.

Subpixel accuracy can be done with a single addition and subtraction per scanline. Maybe an extra bit or two of precision sent to the gpu. Would have easily been worth it.

I don't know that much about hardware design, and never claimed to, but I know the feature I'm talking about only requires two arithmetic ops per scanline and 1 extra bit of precision (more would be better though). Doesn't seem too expensive.

>> No.6745894

>>6745874
They could've incorporated the R3010 FPU into the design to give it more grunt, but that component alone is as expensive as the CPU.

shoulda coulda woulda

>> No.6745915

>>6745894
Except that's not in any way comparable to two one cycle ops per scanline plus an extra bit or two per coordinate. Those bits are thrown away after the subpixel correction step and the remainder of the graphics chip doesn't need to handle them.

You don't need a fpu for good rasterization or texture quality anyway.

Resident Evil 2 N64 not only took TWO (2) extra years to come out compared to the original, it looks worse, has inconsistent background sizes with an obscene amount of compression, ultra blurry FMV thanks to interpolation and is ultimately an inferior way to play. Textures are fucked, sounds are fucked, backgrounds are fucked, and models are of course: fucked.

RE2 N64 is a novelty, but an inferior version from start to finish.

Sorry but the N64 was a more capable machine that at it's peak made games the PS1 could never dream of running like Conker or Perfect Dark. The FPS was often sub 30 because of how much the developers pushed the hardware.

you realize all of your complaints come from not playing on a CRT? PS1 games look like ass on new monitors, there's so many jaggies and pixels that the mess of mosaics obscures so much. I have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking at. Levying this criticism at the 64 while ignoring it when its just as present, if not more so on the PS1 is just fanboyism.

>> No.6746590

>>6746581
I have an extremely high end CRT and use component video on a PS1 with HDRV cables, trust me I know how much better PS1 looks compared to its competition. Porting over shitty N64 assets and replacing the much higher resolution and fitting Spyro assets does not make the PS1 original look bad, it just goes to show how inadequate the N64 assets are in comparison.

yeah but the ps1 could use textures of any size, and the cache would load it in dynamically.

n64 is more like texture scratchpad, it's managed manually, and you can only reference up to 4k of texture per polygon or something (there might be a way to switch things out while it's drawing, but if there is it's probably extremely tricky)

It's been good since about 2005 dude. However there is still massive input lag in both the major emulators.
